Although tis area is deemed as an unpopular areas to stay among local but I found it to b pretty safe so far.

Great location! Walking distance to train station, lovely eating places and 24hrs family mart! Great choice if you are looking for decent and not so expensive hotel. Breakfast are a delight! Simple and yet delicious spread!

Happily arrived at the hotel & was shocked to know that a double room is only meant for 1 person though we did indicated that max occupancy is 2. Had a long conversation with AGODA but end of the day, we still have to pay extra charges if 2 person is occupying the room. The hotel receptionist was very sympathetic... More

I find all Toyoko Inns to be an economical and predictable place to stay. It's a budget business hotel chain with a business model designed to provide essentials and that's it. You get a small private room with en suite facilities, elevator, free wifi, breakfast, everything the busy Japanese business traveller needs. Check in, shower, sleep, grab a quick breakfast... More

I will definitely consider the Toyoko Inn chain again if I return to Japan some day. Overall I think this hotel is a good example of glass-half-full, glass-half-empty. If you want to find fault, there are shortcomings. Its location in Ikebukuro is both busy and charmless. Things mostly work smoothly enough but if they don't, it will be very difficult... More

When I traveled to Japan, it was a cheap, nice stay. They accomodated us with traditional Japanese food and a nice, perfect sized room. The bathroom was kind of strange as it was all plastic-like. Opening up the bathroom door, it seemed as if I stepped into a whole different place. It was very clean and very close to the... More

Have stayed twice at this hotel over the last year during business and leisure travel and have had good experiences both times. The rooms are Toyoko Inn style, small with pretty firm beds, but this hotel is about location. It's a really affordable option just a few blocks from the Ikebukuro Station North Entrance, from where you can essentially get... More

The rooms are small but clean and the hotel is close to the train station. It also has amenities like washing and drying machines (100 yen coins). The staff is very helpful. There is free Internet access in the room.

I've stayed in Toyoko Inn 2. This hotel is about few minutes walk to the subway. However, the location is rather difficult to find. There are Toyoko Inn 1 and Toyoko Inn 2. Both on diffennt locations nearby. Toyoko Inn 1 have better service receptions. The room is very cramp with only a small walking space. Haha, you have to... More

Toyoko Inn business hotels are my go-to choice whenever I travel around Japan. I almost always had satisfactory experience even in Tokyo, where hotel staff would have a higher tendency to be jaded from meeting more foreigners than staff in other prefectures. That was why we were so taken aback by the rude service we received during our stay at... More
