Chose this hotel as it was recommended by a female friend. Really excellent!! Do not expect a five star hotel, but service and amenities are really more than sufficient. Stayed for 5 nights in a double room 14 sq m (facing the street, not the railway) and it was quite spacious. Tokyo was really cold when I went (below 10... More

This hotel has a good location. It is just 1 minute away from the north exit of the ikebukuro Station!! However, the nearest railway exit (20A) has no elevator. Overall, the price is reasonable. The room is clean and the Wi-Fi connectivity is good.

Perfectly adequate for a solo traveller or a couple on budget. The 12m2 room that I stayed in (room style sb5) was extremely clean, cleverly laid out, and shops/restos are just a stone's away. It mainly caters for the local crowd but the front desk staff all spoke passable English. Recommended and will consider returning.

I had a heavy luggage and being close to the exit is of utmost importance. Literally less than 1 min away from the exit. It was also located in a relatively lively area which was important for solo female traveller. The room had a smoky smell though. Also, there is a elevator up from another exit. Good to find out...

This hotel is just outside north exit. Very convenient location. It's kind of old and a bit noisy because of trains. But these are not unbearable and its price is good for just one person. No Wifi, only cable internet connection. Will recommend for solo traveler who just goes back to hotel for shower and sleep (spends most time outside)... More

After a long day of sightseeing and shopping, the hotel is right by the exit of the station. The hotel is also situated close to numerous good restaurants. Hotel staff is friendly and knowledgeable!
