The price is very cheap compared to the central location. Well, the hotel is on the edge of the red light district, but you can walk to e.g. Shinjuku station without going through the red light district itself.
This was the second Toyoko Inn I've stayed in and it was very similar to the one I've been before. Pretty new, very clean and a small Japanese-style breakfast. The cleaning of the rooms takes a long time, because they come at 10 am and open all the rooms doors. Then they do the cleaning phase by phase and finish by 4 pm. This also means, that the check-in time is 4 pm (3 pm for loyalty program members) and they seem to be strict on that.
The normal twin room was very small for two people, but was enough for us, because we stayed only for a few nights and didn't spend much time at the hotel other than sleeping. They also have larger Deluxe rooms, if you want a decent-sized room.
The wifi didn't work well in the rooms, but there was also a cable connection for the Internet, which worked fine.
There are a lot of restaurants close to the hotel on the north side of it. It seemed to be a Korean area, because most of the restaurants were Korean. For Japanese food, we had to go to the red light district (which also had normal restaurants).
For getting to the airport, we took the metro from the nearby Higashi-Shinjuku metro station to Ueno-Okachimachi. From the exit A5 of the Ueno-Okachimachi station, the walk to the Keisei-Ueno station was less than 10 minutes and from there, there are a lot of direct trains to the airport. This way, the walk was shorter than walking to the Shinjuku station.
We stayed in Shinjuku in order to practice aikido at the Aikido Hombu Dojo. It was a 15 minute walk away.
