Had 4 night stays in this hotel. We reserve a non-smoking room online but end up still getting a smoking room instead. They compensate by upgrading into bigger room. The size of our room very comfortable. Not sure about other room. So I guess this is a common problem for this hotel for giving a smoking room too. Wi-fi not available in our room and lobby area and not so convenient for us.
Our room is at the top floor and at the corner, not sure why there is some sort of machine noise coming from next buildng but just a minor bearable sound on and off. Still manage to get a good night sleep for us.
Basically room is clean , looks new and they change the bedsheets daily.
The location is just 2 mins walk from Awajichio station and very convenient and quite centralised to all places of interest in Tokyo rather than to stay in Shinjuku area. This saves a lot of travelling time from point to point. But if you are more keen to visit Ameyoko Street ,Ueno Park, Zoo, Asakura-Odaiba (specially Sakura season, stay nearby Ueno Station is better. Ueno is easily acessible from Narita Airport thru Keisei Ueno. ( Direct and hassle free and cheaper mode of transport too). Staying near Ueno,Ginza line to avoid the need to transfer train is a good idea too.
Airport bus will just drop us at North Entrance of Marunuochi Line and we have to take to Awajichio, 2 stops away. (Just walk across the main road towards JR line and take the underpass to Marunuochi line(red)). The hotel just behind Tully , take the small lane and turn left.
I suggest a 24 inches luggage bag for mobility and easier to store in their locker in the train station at Y500.
We can walk around 22 mins to Ameyoko street and Ueno Park as well from this hotel.
Breakfast quite decent, scramble eggs are good but same daily menu.
The Aunty that served the breakfast was very friendly.
Good Cofee machine on the lobby area and free flow anytime.
Locker available if you wanna leave your bag and check out earlier and return for luggage later.
I can say this hotel value for money allthough it might not be cheapest alternative.
