“Great budget hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We stayed from 28mar-5apr in a semi double room on the 8th non smoking room/floor. The room size itself was quite small but still enough for a couple like us (i'm 180cm tall, spouse is 170cm) with light carry-ons. The location is really close to both JR and Metro station which is really easy to get anywhere in Tokyo.

The cleanliness, and staff help were also excellent with limited english abilty. Toilet was also very clean. Even when we hung "do not disturb" sign, they left a bag full of clean towels, toothbrushes, shaver, and tea bags.. Excellent

Free wi-fi throughout although the signal strength is best near the elevator or lobby.

Price is economical!! We are really satisfied and would stay there again.

Location:
Perfect convenient location for sightseeing, visiting the most attraction & places around.
Only few minutes walking distance (250m) to the next train station.

Facilities:
The best years are over already. The hotel incl. capsules are very old & used already but for Y2900 for one night still O.K.
I have seen many better capsules in Japan. So not Japans best.
-free Wi-Fi only at the lobby
+aircondition are available.
-Bathroom, showers etc. are clean but very used already.
The bathroon is at the ground floor lacated which makes things more complicated.

Staff:
The staff is very friendly, well informed & really helpful.
English speaking staff.

Rooms:
Rooms are clean, capsules old but O.K.

We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with the location, as we could walk past metrostations on our way to the JR-station (as we had a JR-pass) within 5-6 minutes!
It was nice and quiet, had a nice enough view, the staff was very helpful, though the room was very small, it had all we needed.
The only bad thing is that the matress is almost hard as stone, so my back was hurting badly after 2 nights, but my husband had no problems.

Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor and was gald to above traffic noise.

I choosed this hotel only for price and location. The overall result of my stay is sufficient. Hotel does not offer anything special. Wifi is ok, but not unreliable during night and early morning (too many devices are connected and run out of IP addresses). Rooms are small as any other hotel in Japan. No desk. Bad things were the room temperature, 16 degrees and no heat inside, only air conditioning for summer. A pervasive smell of cigarettes smoke coming from bathroom was the most annoying thing. Reception told that is a 'feature' of hotel.

I have just come back from a staying of 10 nights at this hotel.

It is only 3 minutes walking from MTR station and JR line. It is located in a very quite street but many restaurants can be found nearby in the street of the JR line station.

The room is small, but unless you go to a 4* in Tokyo ( in my experience),this is what you usually find in Tokyo.

It is a great option for anyone going for business or pleasure. Comfortable room although small ( with facilities such as tea, TV, hairdryer, fridge...), complete bathroom and an excellent cleaning are their strength.

On the oppossite, the staff in general is a little bit rude and although they help you ( or they try ) they are not very kind. Specially the men. Most of them don't speak english, so language is also a barrier. Besides, do not count with internet as they say. We could only connect our tablet and phones in counted occassions and specially at the lobby, but not always.

One last thing, our room was in the second floor and was non-smoking but many mornings the smoke of cigarrettes flouded our bathroom which was really disgusting.

Overall, I would recommend it but I hope to be in another hotel next time, mainly because of the staff.

Very nice budget hotel. Strategic location, some steps from Bakurocho JR station and 15 minutes walking from Akihabara. Rooms are a bit small, but ok for japanese standards. Important to say about the breakfast. it's a full japanese style, there's no western foods. Hi-speed internet wifi avaliable. Good choice.

this is like 1.5 years ago and i have to complain about that the metro station nearby is just so lack of traveler friendly facilities, I had to carry my 11kg suitcase along the stairs. But otherwise the staffs were willing to help and friendly, although I figure their English was not very good at all. the room was tiny, like all the other business hotels in Japan, but enough for just me. very comfy bed and the bathroom was clean and neat.
Although, for the inconvenience of metros, I would think twice to go there again....
