“Really good stay in a clean room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Hotel was clean, recently renovated and in a good location. The streetcar line is good in a pinch, and it's a 10 minute walk to Otsuka stn, or the Marunouchi and Yurakcho lines. Ikebukuro stn is about 15-20 minutes by foot. Lots of konbini and food shops in the area.

This hotle is perfect for my needs. The location is great! Very close to ikebukuro shopping area and just a few minutes walk from Otsuka station. Plus, there is 7-eleven right in the opposite. Very convenient and worth every yen :)

Location is really good. From Otsuka station(JR), it takes few minutes by walk.
Sunshine building is also near from this hotel.
From window, you can see Skytree tower!
Bathroom is small as usual as Japanese, but for me it was no problem.
In front of this hotel, there are fermacy, convenience store and restaurant open 24hours.
This hotel is really usueful place!

This was my first stay in japan and it made a nice impression.

Check in was prompt and fuss free. Relatively near to Otuska station - around 15 minutes walk. The hotel was clean and wi-fi however was only available at the lobby. Room was small but bed was comfy. There are convenience and bento stores surrounding the area in case you are hungry at night. A small, no frills simple cozy little haven for those on a reasonable budget.

Room Tip: entrance to toilet can be a little high so please take care.

Overall is a clean hotel and it's near to JR station-otsuka. However, my opinion is not suitable for family with old folk because need to claim high step for the toilet. Smaller toilet compare to my another stay in Osaka hotel. If you can pay a little bit more about Usd 20, I think you can try stay at other hotel. But if you want to save money, this will be the choice. Wifi only available at reception at level 2. If u want free wifi inside your room, get lower floor at level 3 but is a smoking room.

Basic but clean hotel, just what I needed for a good night sleep. Good size, practical bathroom with POLA bath and shampoo provided. The room also has a mini kitchenette where hot plate is provided for cooking convenience.

Laundry room is wide and spacious with sufficient washer and dryer doe supply at reasonable cost. Front desk and main door closes at 10PM, however pass code is given to access into the hotel without hassle.

Walking distance to Sunshine City, a food heaven and Ikebukuru Station where departmental stores and night life is overwhelming!

If you are only looking for a room to sleep soundly and have hot bath, check into this hotel, value for money! And most importantly comfortable and clean!

Very nice room, not the largest hotel room in which you may have stayed, but enough space for two people to live comfortably for several days. The kitchenette is great, a little cramped if you are planning on doing very elaborate cooking, but also accommodating as you can rent a lot of necessary utensils from the front desk (for free!). Location is fantastic, right next to the center of Ikebukuro, several convenience stores and a 24/7 Seiyu (grocery store). It is also accessible by the JR Yamanote line and the Metro Marunochi line, so it's really convenient to get pretty much anywhere in Tokyo, including the airports. The staff were very professional, nice and helpful. If you are deciding between this and perhaps a cheaper option in a less convenient location, I definitely recommend this as a place to stay!
