I won't get too deep into what to expect from a Japanese hotel in general, as I think most people will already be somewhat familiar. Short version: Rooms are tiny, but usually include all the amenities you need and are generally very clean.
I booked this hotel on the night of my stay using the Hotels.com app. I live in Tokyo, but outside of the city center. Sometimes when you're out having fun it's nice to not have to to stress about catching the last train home. This was one of those nights, and I was very happy to only pay about ￥9000 ($95 USD). There are definitely cheaper options (if you want to stay in capsule hotel), and a better rate could be had if you book ahead, but for a convenient located, known chain hotel, I felt it was reasonable.
The room was clean, and not freshly renovated but still modern enough. I also found the bed to be larger than can be generally expected in a Single room. It felt more like a Semi-Double.
In addition, the location was good. It's close enough to walk to Roppongi, if you are looking for nightlife, but far enough to avoid the throng of tourists.
My only complaint was that the noise from the hallways comes in the rooms pretty clearly. This could be a bit annoying on a weekend, when there will be plenty of drunk people stumbling back to their rooms. I was probably one of the last to bed, so it was no problem, but if I had wanted a good nights sleep, it would have been another story.
Note: This is one of the closest hotels to Club Muse, which I discovered accidentally while walking to the hotel. Muse is a fun place, with a young, good looking crowd...fair warning though, that it's a bit of meat market. I showed up there around 2am and the place was still going strong...so many people that you could barely walk around. Good times.
