“Very comfortable quiet hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Stayed two nights at this quiet nicely appointed hotel
Staff were very helpful and courteous
Room was clean and tidy - the bed was firm and there was a selection of pillows - found that very handy with a crook neck
Slept like a log
Bathroom had all the accessories in case you forgot your toothbrush etc
Breakfast was non-western but that was handy as I tend to eat too much if there are too many goodies
Checkout was 11am and you need to pay 1500 yen per hour thereafter
Overall great location and a nice hotel

Room Tip: Be prepared for non-western breakfast On the plus side - 10 min walk from ginza

This was a very nice hotel. The rooms were a bit small but very clean and comfortable. The staff was always very helpful and there was always someone who spoke English well. The hotel was conveniently located in Shiodome near both a JR line station and the Tokyo metro (and walking distance to the fish market if that’s on your itinerary). The included breakfast was very good as well. Overall a great value pick for anyone looking for a simple and comfortable hotel from which to explore Tokyo.

Typical Japanese hotel, efficient, clean, small rooms, but not too expensive. The best part is its an easy walk to Ginza so if you want this as a base for both business and shopping it's hard to beat. As mentioned breakfast is a bit unusual, there's no proper set-up, so they do a kind of daily "field kitchen" buffet in the lobby, complete with army style meal plates. It's not as bad as it sounds, there's a mix of things, so it's always possible to find something to eat. Can get busy though, so you have to be comfortable sharing tables with strangers, "Asian style".
If you arrive late as we did, the solution to no room service is the Dominos Pizza, menu in the room, don't worry they speak English and deliver to your room. The internet is superfast, but by cable so if you want to use your ipad etc, better carry a travel router, or sit in the lobby.

Room Tip: Depending on which side of the building you are, you may get a good view... or not. But if you reall...

Rooms are clean and comfortable. Was on the 10th floor so had a nice view out over Tokyo Bay only partially blocked. The breakfast is included and others have written is nothing special. Its more that adequate though if you like a simple japanese style breakfast...would not leave to the end of the closing time though..starts getting cold.

Easy access to shimbashi station though an underground network of walkways. Plenty of restaurants around station. There is a skybar on the 41st floor..has a cover charge though but worth the view.

Room Tip: Gor for the corner rooms. Vending machines with beer available on each floor. Also a small laundry...

Small rooms but that is the Japanese style anyway. Very good location, right next to the train station and to lots of restaurants. No room service. The breakfast is very basic and not really for people not used to the Japanese type of breakfast...
Free internet in the rooms but WiFi connection only at the lobby area.
All in all, a good choice.

This is the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in, but you expect that i think in a budget hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world. It was in a good location for the city sights and the transport system. Food and drink options were limited, but quality was high. No room-based WiFi, but good connection in the reception area. All the staff, without exception, were brilliant. Friendly, courteous, efficient. Could not fault them.
