“Okay hotel, small rooms, great bath”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Dormy Inn is a small Tokyo hotel primarily aimed at the Japanese market. The rooms are small (no drawers for clothes, small bathroom), the beds have hard and sometimes uncomfortable mattresses (my wife liked the bed). I hated the breakfast. The staff is friendly, but not very helpful, and their English is barely existent. But the baths are wonderful and worth the stay.

Three and a half years stay in Osaka and visited Tokyo several times for business, this hotel is the best in my experience. Once we open the room, it's well decorated with modern style, wide spring bed for 2 of us (the space between us is quiet enough), comfortable toilet and bathroom, a set of towel and pajamas, free wifi, petite kitchen and refrigerator. The onsen and sauna was very nice although we didn't try it. They gave a free soba as i read from another travellers. The staff is very polite and helpful with good English. The shuttle bus driver help us to pick up and down our heavy luggage and drive carefully before stopping in front of the Yaesu central exit of Osaka station. They also provide microwave in the 2nd floor which is good to spend time for breakfast. The location is not so far from Hatchobori station, but for old people it's kind a bit far. We took 10 minutes from exit 2 (using elevator) maybe it's faster from exit 4. The only problem is there is an 7-8 y.o boy inside the woman onsen, maybe they came with their mother... but it turn me off of using the onsen. I don't understand about the rules, but i prefer surrrounded by women only in the onsen. Overall, I'm really recommend this hotel and would like to stay again.

Room Tip: Stayed in lower floors to save time as the elevator is quiet small and there is many guest stay in t...

Top notch onsens at this hotel. I couldn't believe it was in the middle of Tokyo. Awesome value for money. Breakfast was great but there were so many food choices outside, so probably should have only booked breakfast for one morning. Onsen experience was my favorite and the most memorable of my Japan trip. I went in this one every single day!

Dormy Inn is conveniently located at Hatchobori JR station. Frm Narita Airport, take the Nex to Tokyo Station, then take the Keiyo Line, 1 stop to Hatchobori. Exit gate B3/B4, some stairs to climb there. Dormy is located along the waterway, next to a police post. Look upwards for Dormy sign on a taller building.

Quiet neighbourhood with many convenience stores & several restaurants within walking distance. Disneyland is just 5 stations away on the Keiyo Line at Maihama Station. The rooms are compact but spacious enough, though the slightly bigger than super single size bed is a bit cramp for 2 adults.

However, the onsen experience made up for it. The ladies onsen was more crowded on weekends but almost empty on weekdays. After the onsen, the skin does feel silky & soft frm the nourishment of the minerals. The complimentary ramen supper was satisfying.

The only glitch about this place is that all the staff speak limited English. So do all your homework before going because nobody will understand you there.

Room Tip: We got 2 rooms side by side at the corner on the 10th floor, overlooking the waterways.

We chose this place as it's kind of hard to get a access to a 'real' onsen (water from natural hot spring, not just 'hot water' like a Sento). The other Dormy Inns in Tokyo don't have natural hot spring (aki may be mixed water or something).

Plus - natural onsen, large buffet breakfast (it may or may not be included in the price - it's worth Y1100), rooms with windows that open, close to metro, free shuttle to Tokyo Station, close proximity to Tsukiji, super fast LAN internet, 2 computers at lobby with internet, free ramen from 9.30 - 11, friendly staff (they have English speaking staff too for those who need it), free morning coffee, nice fluffy towels, relatively big rooms by Japanese standard.

Minus - location is a bit out of the way (even if it's just a few stops from Tokyo Station) and not really walking distance to night life so you're going to rely on taxi if you stay out after the metro has closed (also not many 'breakfast' options as other areas may have, you've only got 1 Lawsons nearby), the lifts are super slow, slightly dated decor (which makes the room look smaller too), paid wifi (we have our own wireless router so we don't have to pay), better booking bargains on the Japanese only website if you can understand Japanese booking systems (and if you book fast enough!) otherwise the prices on the English speaking sites are higher (but have more availability of rooms), no extra discount if you chose to be 'eco' friendly (like other Japanese hotels), onsen can get very busy in peak hours.

I gather they cater to salary men so they've gone out of their way to make sure there are lots of home options like the free ramen, shuttle bus, hearty breakfast etc.

Room Tip: Try a lower level room as the lifts are really slow.

Visit Hotel Dormy Inn in Tokyo - and get at relaxing nice time in the hotel’s hot spa on first floor…

The hotel’s rooms are a small but well equipped. The is a free shuttle bus service to Tokyo Station add further value to the package; and it’s place OK in Tokyo in regards to subways etc. So all in all – a very nice standard hotel for Tokyo standard….

So what makes this hotel so unique ?

It’s the in house onsen (hot spa) placed on the first floor – separate for men and women !!!
Beautiful decorated, nice bath facilities – and both indoor and outdoor. It’s totally zen relaxation to enjoy the warm spa in the nice surroundings – after and before a busy day as tourist in Tokyo. For that alone – you should visit Hotel Dormy Inn

PS the women's onsen requires a password to enter. The password is changed everyday, thus enhancing the security of the place.

Room Tip: Only go as a couple - the room are small !

the hotspring is excellent! especially after a full day of shopping in Tokyo. the free ramen was good too. the room was clean and the space is sufficient compare to the other hotels in Tokyo. it's just 1 min away from the JR station but it's not a tourist area without any shopping malls or attractions. the english capability of the staff was poor but they did try their best to communicate with the guests.
