This is a new “business hotel” in a non-touristy part of Tokyo.

We knew this room was small when booking. It was the smallest room we have stayed in, not only in Japan, but our entire travel history. (We have not stayed in a capsule hotel!) Everything new and sparkly, fresh pyjamas for the night. You wouldn’t fit here if you have a suit case. We travel light – little more than cabin bags - and our bags barely fit. One on the bag rack, the second under the desk. The only free floor space was between the front door, passing the bathroom, and the beginning of the bed, and that is the width of the door. Then there is a narrow desk and just enough space to walk by the bed.
You can understand this is targeting overnight business people. We found the 140cm width double bed is on the small side for us, but OK for a single.

The small rooms make up most of the hotel. One comfort room (an extra long corridor), and one twin (even more space) are on each floor. We swapped to the comfort room after two nights and that extra corridor space made a big difference. Then two of us could walk at once!

Breakfast is basic but freshly prepared. Two firsts for us in our Japanese visit: Good quality smoked chicken breast and real coffee from real beans in an automatic espresso machine.

Before arrival, we found difficult to find the hotel on any map, as not shown on google, the hotel website, or other maps we had. However, the subway area map at Ningyocho subway station showed the hotel clearly. There are 3 subway lines (Ningyocho (Asakusa A14 & Hibiya H13) and Suitengumae (Hanzomon Z10)) within a few minutes walk. We found Ningyocho (H13) the most convenient overall.

Overall we found this to be a great location base Where ever you go, you need to travel, and this was close or on the way to most. Quite a number of reasonable quality local restaurants in the area.

We would happily stay here again. While we enjoyed this compact experience, next time we'll target a twin room. Book ahead!

This was a lovely, reasonably priced hotel for a big city.We did get a good deal because it is new and we took a chance on going there.Everything was new and we even got a breakfast everyday thrown in.It cost us only 5000 yen a night for this.We got all the freebies as usual brush,tea,toothbrush,razor etc and also could help yourself to bathsalts(mango).fruit teas,and women got a special pack of moisturisers and hair clip for everyday!The breakfast was scrambled egg, sausages, toast , jam.
salad,cold meats,tea.coffee and always hot and fresh.There was free coffee everyday from 3pm and water/ice available all day.Also access to laptop.The reception was where the breakfast was and very like a new backpackers where people can get together.The staff spoke very little english which could be a problem but were very helpful especa\ially when I had lost my case keys and they gave us boltcutters to get in the bag!Loved my room but small for 2 people.Cannot fault the place.Try it if in Tokyo.Handy for 2 lines of Tokyo subway and got all over Tokyo from there.Dont book taxi from here as cab charged an extra 500yen from hotel.Should have been 800yen to Tokyo main station.He charged me 1300yen!!!

Room Tip: All were secure so it didnt matter to me which room(no smoking of course!)

My first thought when walking the short way from the subway, was that the area was really nice and not all that "touristy".

At the reception they are very nice and very helpful, but their english is lacking a lot.

The room is clean, but small, but we did have room for our suitcase to stand on a small holder, so we had easy access to it.

The bed was quite comfortable and even though we could easily hear when anybody talked outside the room, we were never disturbed at night.

As we hardly spend any of our waking hours on the hotel, it had all we needed.
