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

This is always my choice of hotel whenever I went to Tokyo. It is a few minutes walk from the station and there are plenty of convenience stores, shopping malls and restaurants all within a few minutes walk. Room rate also comes with free breakfast and WiFi. Breakfast is simple but very delicious. Room is small but there are spaces... More

We stayed twice at Toyoko Inn Ikebukuro No. 1 - May 2010 & May 2013. It's about 10 mins walk from the Ikebukuro Station. It's very convenient to many stores/shops/restaurants, especially for those who are traveling from/to Narita Airport via NEX. Like most rooms in Tokyo, the room is small but the bed is comfortable - we had the Queen... More

Small rooms. Busy hotel. Fee wifi. Discount available for club members. Flexible rates during the week. Restaurant will be open after 7 am. So getting breakfast if you have morning flight will be difficult.

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
