My boyfriend just came back from Japan two days ago and we stayed at this hotel for 10 nights. I am happy to say that we really enjoyed our time at the hotel.
We were supposed to stay from the 7th - 16th but because of over booking we did not get onto our flight so we had to leave one day later the 8th. I emailed agoda.com asking them if there is any way to keep our hotel room and the hotel ended up moving our days back without charging us a fee which made me extremely happy. We payed $60 cdn per night for a Semi Double Room.
Our room was on the 10th floor, room 1018 and it was non smoking. It did not smell like smoke any where in the hotel.
The room was very tiny, I don't even know how the got the queen sized bed into the room to be honest, but it was functional. We lived out of our carry on's and so we ended up putting our suitcases under the bed every night which gave us some room to be able to walk a bit more freely.
The bed was much bigger than what was described on agoda.com. My boyfriend is 6'3 and his feet did not dangle off the bed like we thought he would. The mattress was a bit stiff but you get used to it.
I was very happy to see that we had a fridge in our room. It helped us save a bit of money because we would buy dinner or sometimes lunch at the Mini mart which is just down the road.
The main reason I had booked this room is because it had it's own bathroom. I am not the type of person that would feel comfortable taking a shower in a shared bathroom late at night when we would come back to our room at midnight. It was a very tiny bathroom, we both couldn't stand in it together, but it had everything you needed such as toilet, bath, and shower.
The hotel is very well located. It was two steps from the JR Yakosoku line Bakurocho station. Also if you turned right and walked 15-20 minutes you were in Akihabara. Walk to your left and you are in Asakusa.
The only reason I am giving this hotel 4* is because one, the walls are very thin so you hear everyone talking. I am a light sleeper and woke up most nights because I would hear people talking outside the room or even in the room beside us. Number two, WiFi is not that reliable. I brought my cellphone and every morning there was a hoard of people in the lobby on the wifi and the hotel would run out of IP addresses and they would have to restart the internet which was kind of a pain.
I would most definitely stay here again as long as we get the same sized room. I can't imagine being in a smaller room but if you are looking for a convenient location and an amazing price, I highly suggest this hotel.
