“A "Tokio style" hotel, comfortable and close to the commercial area (and Roppongi)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have been there three times during the last 5 years and always i found a perfect "Japanese style" on both room space and people. People there are very friendly and willing to help you as much as they can. The rooms are quite small but this is, as said, in line with most of the hotels in Tokio. The nice environment and the apparently quite area (even if quite in the center of the metropolis) are the things i remember the most and i am always considering choosing this hotel whenever i plan a trip in Tokio. Nice choice for a short or long stay.

I have only been to Tokyo twice, and despite staying in Shinjuku for one night, I just love this area. It is a lovely quiet location but walking distance to JR Shinanomachi (20 min), and subway (5 min). Nice area - some restaurants, galleries and shops, alsoTokyo Midtown, Roppongi and Mori tower nearby. Good breakfast (not fancy) but enough to choose from to start the day. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Comfortable rooms for a good night's sleep.

The good points of this hotel:

Location - good access to all parts of the city using the subway, or even the JR overground line. A few small restaurants close by.

Quiet - in a small street, residential area with apartment blocks nearby.

Reception desk staff - friendly, helpful, speak English.

Information - in lobby , plenty of brochures with ideas of places to go and things to do.

Beds comfortable.

Good value for money in our case, room size OK and breakfast included.


Not so good:

The first room we were allocated smelt really overpoweringly of stale cigarette smoke. We arrived quite late and no other room was available. The next 2 nights we were offered a room on a non-smoking floor, which was better.

The rooms themselves were a bit well-worn. Dreary colour scheme. Carpet tiles showing signs of wear. Bathroom quite small and not impeccably clean - eg a long hair wound round the base of the handrail on the bath.

Breakfast room staff not so helpful, also not speaking English.

Breakfast OK with both western and Japanese food, not a great choice of dishes and no butter for the bread, just margarine.


Last point, a tip for access if you come by subway:

Take the Ginza or Hanzomon line to Aoyama Itchome station and go to Exit No 4. You will see the post office on the opposite side of the road and to the left a big boulevard with a park on the far side. Turn right out of exit 4, cross one side road at lights, then at next lights cross the main road to the other side. Follow the small road on the other side, perpendicular to the main road, going between 2 big blocks and then a little downhill and the hotel is on the right. Approx 5 mins walk altogether.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room (if you are a non-smoker!)

This is the best bargain that my wife and I have encountered in Tokyo. It is located near the very center of the city and very close to the subway which provides easy access to the whole city. The rooms are Spartan but impeccably clean and very utilitarian. Breakfast variety is limited but more than adequate and there are some reasonably priced restaurants in the area. To top it off a most helpful staff makes a stay there a treat. We cannot recommend this hotel too highly.

Room Tip: Bookings should be made well in advance

For the price of the hotel, this is a great hotel in Tokyo. Clean room, decent size for Tokyo, yes the old building rooms are a bit older but still in good condition, they've got everything you need. Free internet and free bottled water from reception. Staff on reception speak a decent level of English. Breakfast if included with the room is ok, but not worth paying the 995 yen for if not. The western breakfast was cold most mornings!

Within 10 mins walking distance to the busy Roppongi and served well by 2 subway stations. Hotel can be a little tricky to find in the dark when you arrive, easiest way to spot it is look for the side street closest to the steak restaurant with a moustache sign!

Would definately recommend to stay here if you are planning on exploring Tokyo.

We were really pleased that we chose this hotel to start our holiday in Japan. We arrived an hour or so before their standard check in time, but we were able to check in without a problem and get a bit of much needed sleep before heading out for the evening. The staff spoke excellent English, and were happy to recommend somewhere to eat - a great local Japanese restaurant.

The location was ideal for the Tokyo Metro, with at least three stations and a variety of lines within easy walking distance. Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi, Roppongi Hills and so on were a comfortable wander away for all of our evening needs.

It barely needs saying that the room and bathroom were small by western standards, but we found them perfectly sufficient, and the semi-double bed was adequate for my partner and I. Everything was spotless.

The breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of western and Japanese choices. Free wifi in the lobby. All in all, and especially for the price, I’m not sure we could have picked a better hotel for exploring Tokyo.

The room was compact but okay; the bathroom has been remodeled and is great. The staff was helpful. The bed wasn't the greatest but it was wide enough for a single person and was okay, albeit a bit uneven. The breakfast buffet was fine. This hotel is close to Aoyama Itchome (Ginza) subway stop which is a handy stop if coming from the airport using the Keisei line to Ueno. The area around the hotel is very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex are okay but are older. Don't know about the newer rooms. Bathrooms in the...
