“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

Good location (near Ginza, station and restaurants), great room (big enough for one person) and a - for Tokyo - great price.
Enjoyed my stay very much and will definitely come back.

great location, rooms are budget. Small rooms but has air con, shower and tv. Its more the location for what you go for. Its next to the shimbashi JR station (so free journey with your JR rail pass) as well as the metro lines. 20 minutes to Shibuya crossing, 4 minutes to Tokyo central (and bullet trains/Narita Express) on JR Yamanote line. 1 metro stop to Ginza itself. Plenty of places to eat outside too. Walking distance to the Imperial Palace, fish market and Harrikyu Gardens. If you want luxury this isnt for you, if you want a springboard to sightsee in great location then this is it.

Having stayed 3 nights at the Dai Ichi Annex I found the location of the hotel extremely easy to find from Shinbashi JR station off the Tokyo loop line. We had a twin room which was roomy for Tokyo standards & paid 13000 Yen per night. The hotel is close to many restaurants, fast food, bars & there is a supermarket on the opposite side of the station (5 mins walk from the hotel). Friendly staff & clean room await. Ginza district is only 10 mins walk away.

I had stayed here several years ago, and I was happy. I booked again, but was very disappointed this visit.

Every room that I was shown upon check-in smelled to high heavens. The cigarette smoke stinks in the rooms! Mercifully, the cigarette smoking was not prevalent in the dining room nor in the public lobby.

Excellent location near the Shimbashi subway station. Room is clean, quiet and of adequate size. Less expensive alternative to the more opulent and costly Dai Ichi Hotel next door. Highly recommended. Easy to find places to eat nearby, especially at the Shimbashi subway station east entrance.

We stayed here for three nights and would come back anytime. Great value (for Tokyo). Location is excellent. Close to Ginza for shopping and just a block to Shinbashi Station, which makes getting to all the major sights a breeze. Lots of small restaurants and bars in the area. The room was very nice and clean, with free internet access. Reasonably sized, for Japanese standards. The beds were exactly the way my wife and I like them. That is, harder than the way-too-soft beds you find in most American hotels but not uncomfortable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2009

Me and my sister stayed at Dai-Ichi Annex for a week in January. Hotel was ok nice for a first time visit in Tokyo. Staff was beyond courteous and everything worked seamlessly. Our room was on the small side, but roomy enough compared to many places in Europe.

Hotel had a fine location just next to Ginza and Shimbashi station. It was even pretty easy to find despite what other reviews have stated here. The area itself has many small restaurants, stores and pubs, so you can basically find anything needed within a short walk. However, I would find it handier to be closer to the sights, or near a station with better metro line connectivity. Also, as young travellers we would have been better off in Shibuya.

As a hotel Dai-ichi annex was a good choice, it was the location and nasty January weather that bothered us the most. Also, the beds were a bit uncomfortable and the pillows weren't any better.
