“good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The hotel is clean and well maintained. The guest rooms are small, however, that is to be expected in Tokyo at comparable hotels. The smallest room is ok for a single person, but when sharing the room or when staying for a longer period I would recommend booking a larger one. Bathroom ok with sufficient space. Guest room including bathroom was clean and well maintained.

Breakfast has a good selection, also for the Western taste. Internet available in guest room via cable only, wireless available in the lobby. Breakfast area and lobby nice and clean. Friendly staff.

The hotel is located very close to the big "roppongi crossing" intersection, next to Roppongi subway exit no. 5, therefore, providing very good access to town.

Room Tip: Rooms with window at the side of the building get some level of street noise. Towards the back very...

Dear germaniris

Thank you for choosing the b roppongi for your recent stay in Tokyo, and for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and the many benefits the hotel offers. As mentioned, the hotel is centrally located in the entertainment area of Roppongi, but is also located right at the subway station for easy access across Tokyo.

We do offer a range of different room sizes, and we make sure the room sizes are listed on all booking channels to assist the selection process for guests.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon.

Kind regards

Stayed at the b-roppongi in Nov '12. Very good base from which to sight see Tokyo, located in the lively roppongi area and very close to other popular spots such as Shibuya & Shinjuku.

Pros:
-Location, as mentioned above, exit at roppongi station (exit 5 is closest but only stairs there, station is on the grey Hibiya line)
-Room: clean and of decent size.
-Staff: courteous throughout + spoke good english

Cons:
-Next to flyover, not an issue for me, but can imagine if you have a room facing main road, it could be noisy.
-Wi-fi only available in the lobby (quite common in Japan), where they do offer a LAN cable in the room. Not ideal if you have tablet.

Located very centrally for Roppongi, you liternally cannot move for dining options and nightlife. After having travelled around Japan, we found this to be very western area.

Very easy to find, underground station a few metres away so follow directions from hotel and you really cannot fail to find it. You've got a couple of underground line options at the hotel so is quite a good base if wanting to head to various areas of the city.

WiFi is available in the lobby and there's a little PC you can use.
We had a higher room category, on the corner with many windows.
Large room overall, bathroom was of a good size with good quality amenities and a hairdryer.
We had a little seating area by the TV and a desk so could spread out. But, not a lot of storage space for clothes. View to Toyko Tower and bright lights of the area. Was not too noisy as we were a few floors up. Only real disturbance was an earthquake one night!

Breakfast was adequate western/japanese fare, so you could fill up a little bit before going out.
Hotel staff helpful when we needed them to be, e.g. looking up airport train times, but we didn't ask that much of them.

At the end of the day, would recommend to you!

Dear uktraveller1982

Thank you for choosing the b roppongi and for taking time to share your experience on Trip Advisor.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and took full advantage of the location and all that the area has to offer. We certainly agree, you are in the heard of the entertainment capital of Tokyo, with so much going on, but the hotel is a quite retreat in the centre of all the action. It is also easy to access the sites right across Tokyo.

We also have a choice of rooms to suit each guest - and some of the larger ones allow extra space to relax.

We trust that on your next visit we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again.

Kind regards

Our stay at the B Roppongi was nice. It is located right on the main strip of Roppongi and just steps from the subway. It was very easy to get to from the Tokyo subway station with our luggage in tow. We had a fantastic view of the Tokyo tower from our room. The room was very tiny and dated, though. There is very little room for luggage or bags, so we had to open our luggage on the bed, close it when done, and keep them standing behind the door when not in use. The bathroom was a decent size but also quite old and worn in.

We stayed at B Roppongi for 7 nights. The location was good.
it's easy to find , just a block away from Roppongi crossing or from subway exit 5, you can see the sign of the hotel.

The staff was very helpful with English speaking. They do help you with directions.
The room was small but it's enough for us (typical of Japan rooms hotel), however there were tons of restaurants, bars, and grocery stores nearby, so you don't have to worry.

Great location, just steps away from the nearest subway station. Although the subway is not one of the main interchange, it provided the convenience of travelling.

Our room faced the entrance of a nightclub, so we have morning call at around 430am when the crowd disperse :)

Room is clean and neat. We could even catch a glimpse of the Tokyo Twr from our room!

The B is in a very good location for the bars. A small block from Roppongi Crossing. It's a great place to stay if you intend on staying in Roppongi until the wee hours and want to stagger back.

It is a very basic hotel. It is very much no frills hotel. The room is small and basic and it seems like you are on a cruise ship. The washrooms were completely plastic and was obviously a mobile unit put in each room.

The breakfast was not that great. Food was basic and not very good.

The service was not good. The people could barely speak english and did not acknowledge you existence.

Roppongi is not that convenient when going to other places by subway. Just to go to Omotesando, Shibuya or Harajuko you needed to transfer lines.

Better to stay somewhere else if you plan on visiting other sites other than the Roppongi bars.

Room Tip: Get a renovated room on the 2nd floor as you may be able to catch the lobby wifi. Also, bring a lap...

Hi dlee_15,

Thank you for choosing the b roppongi and for taking the time to share your experience.
As you mentioned, our location is one of our strengths; you can explore and have fun in Roppongi without worrying about catching the last train of the night.

It is such a disappointment to hear you find our service was not good. I will share the comments with the team and try preventing it from happening again.
Some rooms such as single rooms are Tokyo sized. If you prefer a bigger room, I would like to recommend our superior twin rooms. The room size is almost doubled.

Thank you again for your review. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Kind regards,

Ryuji Chiku
