Stay here for two days , location is great with close to station and shops around . Room is clean but small where the luggage need to open on bed or the door entrance. Worst park is wifi not working at least where I stay at 9th floor , LAN connection is ok through.

Very good location near the subway which makes it very convenient to get around Tokyo even if it is a little daunting as there are so many lines and so many people using this means of transport. Clean hotel but small room

Stayed in the Superior Single room, non-smoking, for 3 nights. They probably didn't expect guests to stay longer than that as there is no closet to hang clothes.

Good value, good location, very clean, but the triple room is small, it is difficult to open three suitcases in the same time, it is good that have a coffee machine in the lobby. It is very close to the jr station.
