“Small but high quality accommodation, and incredible location at an affordable cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We did learn that the accommodation in central Tokyo is not a good experience, so we didn't expect much for MyStays Hamamatsucho as an budget chain choice. Surprisingly, everything is just so perfect.

The location is so great -- 3 minutes walking to JR Hamatsucho Station (also the direct connection to Haneda Airport) so you can go to Tokyo Station, Akihabara, and Shinjuku by the Yamanote Line, and 2 minutes walking to the Daimon metro station connecting to the main metro lines.There are plenty of convenience stores and local restaurant nearby, and a walking distance to the Tokyo Tower. The greatest thing is that there is no crowd of tourists.

The staff are professional dressed, polite and helpful. The room is small but clean, and has everything you need. The only drawback is that the English instruction is not clear so it took me a while to learn how to watch the TV properly. We were staying on level 10, so it's very quite as well. My wife loves the pillow by the way.

We enjoy our trip to Tokyo so much and our stays at MyStays Hamatsucho was a great part of our whole trip definitely.

Overall, we should visit the hotel again on our next trip to Tokyo and would like recommend to all.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on higher floor with a view of Tokyo Tower

The location is great - with Tokyo Tower, a few parks and the Imperial Palace within walking distance and JR/Subway stations nearby. Staff is helpful and friendly. Room was small but very clean and well furnished. Sleeping quality was excellent. Bathroom was big enough. There are plenty of restaurants and bars close by. Wi-fi was OK and available in the room. It is much better than other hotels! Will definately choose it again when I go back to Tokyo!

Less than 3 mins walk from Daimon Station. From Narita Airport, you can ride on the Narita Sky Access train, 13 stops, about 1 hour and 10 mins directly to Daimon without having to change train for 1280 JPY. Convenient for those with luggage but you will need to climb some stairs - around 20-25 steps, when at Daimon station as there is no escalator.

Daimon is on the Oedo line, which is 3 stops to Ropponggi station and 7 stops to Shinjuku. Another few mins walk to Hamamatsucho Station connects you to the Ueno, Tokyo, Ginza, Akihabara in less than 15 mins.

Room size is like typical Tokyo hotel size, but spacious enough for putting your traveling luggages. Air-condition is new and working well.
I stayed on the highest floor, so there is no traffic noises although it is facing a busy road, and I had the perfect view of Tokyo Tower.
The receptionist is polite and gave me instructions on where to purchase a camera. When the wifi strength was no strong from my room, they had loan me a dongle free of charge.

There is a family mart, 7-11 and Lawson convenient stores within 100 meters to the hotel. Yoshinoya, Mos burger, local ramen and curry rice restaurants are within 5 mins walking distance. There is also quite a big pharmacy along that street for those keen on local facial products.

Could be quite quiet after evening without much activities around the vicinity as there isn't any major shopping complexes nearby but they are just about 10-15 mins away by train.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor with Tokyo Tower view

We got the room we the awesome view of the Tokyo Tower! Do I need to say more? haha It's a good deal (quality/price)... it was not as clean (not as "perfect" clean) as the other hotel we used in Tokyo the first week but it was acceptable. In the reception they helpme to buck a restaurant and to find where to buy a brand of makeup I was looking for. So people were nice and helpful :)

LOCATION: Whilst it isn’t in a touristy area and can be quite dead on the weekend, you’re not far from the ever-efficient train and subway system to whisk you away to the glitzy areas. Take note that Mystays Hamamatsucho is only a short 3-5min walk from the JR Yamanote line which is one of the most useful train loops for tourists. It is also close to the Daimon subway station (exit A2) which is about 2min walk from the hotel entrance. If you’re keen on visiting Tsukiji markets before dawn, you can walk there in 30-35min at a leisurely pace (given you have good navigation skills) or if you catch a taxi, it probably won’t cost you much as it’s relatively close by. During the working week, the immediate area is bustling with salarymen and there are a few cafés and eateries near the JR train station and in the small streets behind if you need to grab a bite.
ROOMS: Small (cozy, if you will), but tis to be expected in a dense city. They are by no means uncomfortable in my opinion, unless you have 2 or more BIG suitcases. They were modern, very well presented, very clean. Bathroom was typical Japanese in style (western commode, so don’t fear), they were plastic instead of our usual western-style tiled bathrooms. Nonetheless there was nothing wrong and I never thought anything bad of it, just very functional and easy to keep clean I guess. The A/C control panel is in Japanese, so use a translation tool on your smartphone like Google Translate to decipher it. Otherwise, ask at reception.
FACILITIES: A business-style hotel, so not many. Wired LAN in room, so bring a travel WIFI router if you need WIFI. LAN cable provided in room and it’s long enough to reach the end of your bed. NOTE that there is NO coin laundry on-site (laundry service only) and the nearest coin laundry is about a 30min walk away tucked away in a back street. No English TV channels and tiny lobby with no in-house restaurant.
STAFF: Great! Very polite, friendly and will try their hardest to please you. Basic English is understood and spoken and we never had trouble communicating. They were always helpful and attentive. For more complex matters, you may need some knowledge of Japanese.
OTHER COMMENTS: Yes, this hotel had a slightly industrial feel with its exposed central core. When you get out of your lift to go to your room, you’ll realise that it’s more like a covered balcony. However, once in your room, you’ll probably forgive this fact.
FINAL THOUGHT: Great value, comfortable, quiet and convenient.

Room Tip: They do have rooms that have a view of Tokyo Tower, request if you wish to have one of these rooms.

We had a very pleasant stay at Mystays Hamamatsucho. The rooms are small but have everything you need including a good bed and air con for those hot nights. We asked for a good room as this was partly our honeymoon. They gave us a room with a beautiful view and even created a self made welcome card congratulating us for our honeymoon. So nice and with a personal touch. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very convenient location to metro lines. No lobby, no English tv channels, no wi-fi, no restaurants.

First things first, I enjoyed this hotel very much because of its overall utility feel. The staff were as always in Japan, well mannered, and spoke English very well comparable to places of its size in Tokyo. It is nicely located close to Hamamatsu Cho Station where it connects for the JR Loop to places like Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku. The hotel itself is no more than 10 mins walk to Tokyo Tower.

Once you get out of the lift, the housing makes you feel like you're in an industrial steel setting with a flight of galvanized stairs connecting in excess of 12 stories. Initially, we felt this was strange, however this grew on us, as we were able to see the city without having to be behind a window (its like being in amongst the elements). To explain this better, would require a photo, which the hotel doesn't provide. I could not fault anything from the room, bed was big and comfy, rooms were secure and the bathroom very clean. For a cheap option, this has got to be amongst the choices, however Tokyo is filled with very good quality stays for similar pricing.
