Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.

It is located in a convenient location, 3 minutes in walking distance to Otsuka station. Many restaurants are near these hotels; actually two hotels, no. 1 and no. 2. No. 1 is inside from the main road, and no. 2 is more approachable to main road and bigger size. One shortcoming is that you can find some 19+ shops such as soap lands and adult bars, and touting can make you be tired.

I visit the hotel at the beginning of April 2016. The location is good by 3-5 minutes walk from Otsuka Station. Also plenty of restaurants in the walking distance. Starbucks is around the corner of the Otsuka station. The Otsuka station is part of Yamanote Line. (google for more) This line can bring you every where to the center of Tokyo. The service at the front desk is good based on Japanese hospitality standard. Even though the room is tiny but you have everything you need. The hotel provides you with washing machine and dryer. They are very useful when you visit for longer period. They also provided you with Japanese style breakfast. Don't expect to be very fancy but sufficient. The service start at 7 until 9:30 PM sharp!!! They start to wrap up at exactly 9:30. Really like the punctual of Japanese. You can also apply for membership and you can get the discount from the first night. This is superb.

We always stayed at this hotel during our Year-end holiday to Tokyo. It is because, with the price that is offering, and the availability of hotel rooms during peak season, this hotel is one of the best option to stay in Tokyo. Located within 3 mins walking distance from JR Otsuka Station, via Yamanote line, it is very convenient to either travel to Shinjuku to the west or Ueno/Tokyo Station to the east. The room is clean and newer compared to it's older sibling, which is about 100m away. The breakfast selection is one of the better one among Toyoko Inn chain. One minus point to note that they have stopped to provide free WiFi in the rooms, only available at lobby area. The hotel is at a red light Street, however, it is perfectly safe and convenient for food and amenities.

The location of this hotel was terrific. It literally took 2 mins from the Yamanote line train platform to the Hotel. Strong wifi on the 5th floor. Staff were very helpful. There are numerous shops and cheap eateries (380 yen) in the area. A Supermarket with a Daiso at the end of the street (head down the street to the left as you exit the front door), 7 eleven, Lawson, Starbucks and Maccas (if that's your thing). I was hesitant at first at there were 2 "red light" looking establishments that you pass on your way to the Hotel but I have to say no one approached us nor were there any sketchy people hanging around. A basic breakfast is provided. The beds are firm to hard, toiletries are provided with a new toothbrush and paste everyday. Razors, combs and some other personal items are available free of charge at the front desk. There is an ice machine and cold and hot water in the lobby also a microwave, vending machine and washer dryer.

We let the location and the price of this place dictate our decision to stay here. Given all that we wanted to see and do during our first visit to Tokyo, we knew we would hardly be spending any time at the hotel and therefore, were willing to forgo something a bit more upscale. The location on the Yamanote Line was very convenient to essentially everything we wanted to see and do. If you cannot tolerate the smell of smoke, this is probably not the place for you. The entire corridor of the 7th floor has a very strong odor of stale smoke. as did our room and our friend´s room, both on the same floor. The rooms are quite small with the look and feel of a mid-priced cabin on a lower deck of a cruise liner. Hotel staff speaks some English and they are friendly and try to be accommodating. Thus, it came as a surprise when they charged us 200 Yen for asking for an extra towel. Another surprise was at check-in when were given a small bottle of disinfectant spray and told we could use it against the odor of smoke. From what we saw, breakfast appeared to be an exclusively Asian affair but couldn't say for certain as we never stopped to eat it and instead, got breakfast elsewhere. Good, decent food is abundant in Tokyo and there were many shops and izakayas (like a local pub) close to the hotel. If you're the type of guy who doesn't mind a harmless proposition to get a leg over by one of the area sex workers when you´re returning to your hotel in the evening, then you won't have any problem here. It's a wee bit dodgy with a there gentleman's club here or there, but it´s harmless and really nothing in comparison to the aggressive hard sell you might get in some other cities in East and South East Asia.
