“Well-kept Secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This simple business hotel is one of central Tokyo's best-kept secrets. It is very well located, on a main road a few minutes' walk from Azabu Juban, a charming area full of interesting small shops and restaurants, and within walking distance of Roppongi. When I go there for work (related to Temple University Japan, nearby) I look forward to a night in this quiet, clean hotel, an excellent, modestly-priced Japanese breakfast in the pleasant little downstairs restaurant (the Western-style breakfast is almost never the best option at any Japanese business hotel) and a daytime stroll around the area, leaving my luggage with the front desk staff. There is nothing fancy here, rooms are small but normal for a Japanese urban business hotel, and the bathroom the usual clean, tiny capsule - but this is a very inexpensive hotel, well-run as one expects in Japan, the staff are polite and professional, and the location is a huge plus. (If you need to be at the Australian Embassy, it's just around the corner). A bus that stops almost outside the hotel takes you to Shibuya, and the train from Azabu Juban station provides a quick link with anyplace in Tokyo you might want to go.

Very good location... it's close to Azabujuban Station and to Roppongi district.
Rooms are small but quiet and clean. Furniture (LCD TV, fridge, etc.) and amenities are OK.
Good air conditioning system.

One of the best value in Tokyo.

Great place if you are looking somewhere reasonable and close to the action. Basic, no frills rooms but clean and very well located. Much better than some of the options which overseas travel agents book in Asakusa or Ueno for a similiar price. Small rooms and limited services but staff are friendly and helpful with some English ability. Close to a couple of subway stations so access is easy.

I stayed at this hotel so that I could be next to Roppongi at an affordable price. The staff is nice and they’ll help you with things. The hotel also has 24/7 front desk in case you need something.
When I entered the elevator, it was actually smelly. Fortunately the rooms weren’t like this, but still they aren't luxurious at all – I wasn’t looking for luxury accommodation, but getting old towels feels like a deal-breaker to me.
You can sleep well on the beds and the bathroom is ok. After you shower you can’t open the bathroom doors because the vapour can trigger then fire alarm and that’s a pain because I like to aerate my bathroom and room after a shower.
You should know that one of the main motorways of Tokyo passes a couple of meters away from the hotel, so for those with lighter sleep, these can be annoying. I honestly didn't hear anything at all neither awake neither when sleeping (I also sleep like a rock).
The hotel is conveniently located next to Azabu-Juban subway station. Take exit nr.2 so that you get as close as possible to the hotel. Once away from exit nr.2, keep on going straight, pass the traffic lights and walk some more 50 m – the hotel will be on your left side. The hotel also offers good access to Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and other things, if you're into walking.
I’d have given it 4 starts because of price and location but: old towels just creep me out; smelly elevators creep me out; and the continental breakfast wasn’t that great. Still, I’d stay there again (I stayed there two times in one week time).

Room Tip: I slept quite ok on rooms 607 and 611. As 607 is closer to the motorway, maybe those with lighter sl...

We chose this hotel to be close to Temple University, Tokyo Campus, where my daughter was starting school in a week. We were central to subway stations (2) & Azabu-juban has plenty of charming shops & restaurants. The hotel staff were extremely courteous and helpful. We took a twin room (2 full sized beds) which gave us enough space to move around each other. Beds were very comfortable, a/c worked well (heat wave!), very clean and quiet. This was a nice Japanese-style experience without being overwhelming.

A very convenient hotel at a good location. But the rooms sizes are too small. I was there for 2 weeks and on day 1 it was a shock for me. But eventually you will come to know how expensive tokyo's real estate is and you will start enjoying the place.
