“GOOD FOR A FEW NIGHTS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We was here for 1 night only, but the service was good, very polite staff at front desk, free coffee or tea all day long. Room a bit small, but there is everything you need and first of all, it is clean!

Location is also good, but in the evening not so easy to find without a good map. Subway 7mins walking distance, supermarket 3mins.
If you are really on a city trip a need no extras but just good quality and very good price for Tokyo, then go there!

Just stayed 4 nights in this hotel, it is very clean and neat as you would imagine a Japanese standard. When arriving at Daimon station it's only few minutes walk, exit on A5 and go east and it's in a small street. I arrived early around 1pm as they start checking-in at 4pm, but the receptionist offered me a space with tea and coffee and internet to relax and checked me in earlier. Over all the experience was great and the staff very friendly and helpfull.

Just stayed there for 4 nights.
When I first got there, I had some trouble finding the hotel since it is down a small lane, built a little back from the lane (ie. car park in front of the hotel made the entrance not visible from the road).
If you exit from A5 exit at Daimon station, turn right at the road and keep walking until you see a white lantern with a cow on the right left side of the lane. The hotel is just behind the lantern.

If you love wagyu beef, try this shop (the one with the cow lantern). It is wonderful. The shop is called Horumon Zaichi.

Awesome new place, everything is well built, clean to japanese standards. Rooms are tight but manageable. Lovely little niceties at the reception area - tea and coffee to help yourself to, bath salts and wet wipes. The surrounding area is quiet and peaceful, downside being the lack of major stores. Nearest minimart should be AEON, ask the staff where it is.

Easiest way to get there is from Daimon Subway station. Exit at A5, get up to street level. Turn right and look up, you see the Fresa name over the rooftops.

Room Tip: all the rooms seem ok since the place is new. enjoy yourself :)

I'll highly recommend this hotel.
Very nice staff, lots of amenities. Rooms are small , but have everything you need.
Close to Tokyo Tower, centre of the city, Metro.
We took Hop on Hop off bus which was very convenient for sightseeing.

The Sotetsu Fresu Inn in Daimon was the first hotel of our stay in Tokyo, we were lucky to find such a comfortable hotel in a good location for a fair price. Yes the rooms were small, but it included everything we needed and the staff were very helpful in allowing to drop off bags before checking in. Some people complained about the space in the room, it was enough for us both with 3 large bags, we understood we were in Tokyo. Glee in Japanese on the TV was an interesting and enjoyable experience!

Room Tip: We had a double bed for us as a couple and we think that was enough for us.

I stayed at the Fresa Inn for three nights during a recent tour through Japan - I used it basically as a staging point for day trips in the Tokyo area. The transport links are fairly convenient (about 5min walk to Daimon subway and Hamamatsucho JR station). Free WiFi in the lobby was a very useful perk.

The rooms are small but clean and well-organized. The bathroom was a little bit more basic than most other hotels I saw during my trip, but it was perfectly functional. The shower/sink combo was a strange touch (one faucet that you could select to send water to either the sink or shower), but it worked fine.

I really appreciated that the hotel provided coin-op laundry - this was a lifesaver for the middle of a long trip, and much cheaper than a laundry service.

The staff deserve special mention. Most hotel staff in Japan (at least in my experience) are extremely welcoming and helpful, but these went far beyond what I could have expected. The highlight was several front-desk staff and someone from the back office (presumably a manager) looking for and eventually finding packing supplies, including a box, bubble wrap and tape, so that I could pack up a souvenir Mt Fuji hiking stick and ship it back to the USA.

Overall, the hotel was basic but provided great value and superb service.
