We stayed two nights here, finding it to be a reasonable base for exploring Tokyo. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from exit C6 of Ikebukuro station, through some narrow lanes lined with bars and nightlife. Despite reservations others have expressed, we had no issues and felt perfectly safe. Our second floor room was on a corner, making for... More

The rooms are for Tokyo big, clean and have everything you want and need. Staff is really friendly, 24/7 for you there. Even if they can't speak really well english, I never had any problems as a non speaking japanese person. They do everything they can to help you. With the red Metro line, what starts at ikebukuro station. (... More

Close to the train station and we found it easily. Round the corner from 7 11. Had a single room and it was big enough, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was coffee, bread, jam and strangely salad. Was very close to all the shops and sunshine city. We also enjoyed a lovely meal at the kamen rider diner which is a... More

We had stayed here for 5 nights. This hotel is located not far from exit C6 of underground pathway. This exit has escalator, so if you travel with big luggage this hotel is a good choice for you. The staffs were so helpful and could communicate in good english. The room looked old but clean and roomy. This hotel provided... More

Convenient location as it is close to JR Ikebukuro Station, convenience stores, restaurants, department stores, and coin laundry. Was put in a smoking room without notice. No Wifi (!) connection above 6th floor made things inconvenient (I was on the 7th floor and had to come down to the lobby for internet). Breakfast was minimal (toast+salad+yogurt). Free 24 hour coffee... More

Perfect hotel in a good location, 3 minutes walk to Ikebukuro train station and surrounded by many restaurants, shops and bars. Clean and staff is always available to help if needed. Free wifi in the room. Would stay there again if back to Tokyo.

I don’t think I will return to this hotel again. There are many choices of hotels in Tokyo. I booked this hotel just because of the budget. We didn’t have any expectation though. The hotel lobby is very small and old and so is the room. When I entered the room, it smelled strange odor. The bed is not comfortable,... More

I mean the Dolphin from A Wild Sheep Chase... OK, it was sold as 'breakfast included'. Breakfast comprised of salad, yoghurt, toast and coffee. That was it. Every day. The room needed updating badly. The decor was worn and old, and the places just needed a good top to bottom clean. Not obviously dirty, but just needed all the nooks... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. They spoke good English and appriciated our attempts at Japanese. The rooms were small but large enough to be comfortable. If you want a more spacious room then you will need to pay more and go to another hotel. The location was great. A few minutes walk from the station which our jr... More
