The check-in process is a bit slow. The staffs are quite nice. Smile can always be found on their faces. The room is clean and tidy with nice air-conditioning. The only thing that annoyed me is that the height of the toilet is too short. My hands has always been hitting the ceiling during shower time.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights prior to our cruise. We were apprehensive however pleasantly surprised as we were anticipating a very cramped room. The room was small but perfectly adequate. The bathroom, also small, featured a nice shower and soaking tub. The view from our window on the 28th floor was magnificent. The room also included a... More

This hotel can be reached by the limo bus from both Narita and Haneda airports. The rooms are pretty much Japanese standard. We stayed in the older part of the hotel. The light design is very stupid. Either you turn on all the lights or none. So, if you are going to the bathroom at night, you're going to wake... More

The standard rooms are very small, extremely dated, had stained bed covers that looked like they were purchased in the 1980's and to top it all off - had a heavy smell of cigarette smoke. When we requested a non-smoking room, we were informed that we would have to pay more money which is absolutely absurd! Surely in this day... More

I was booked to this hotel because we have some business in Ikebukuro. The hotel is not modern, kinda old, and quite musty. The entrance to the hotel is just a door and it doesn't have the grandiose lobby I was expecting for a big hotel in Tokyo. The receptionist and staff were very helpful and they speak English. They...

The hotel room is simple and clean but small compared with other hotels we stayed at but it was so convenient because it is connected to a large shopping mall with a food court. There's a food market in the basement so you can purchase bottled water and other food and snacks.

Not a hotel which caters to English speakers except for groups. But certainly acceptable. Small room, even with two beds. No drawers. No shelves in closet. Had to use smallish love seat for unpacked clothes. Restaurant in basement serves both Japanese and US breakfasts. Nicely situated near Sunshine City Mall and Seibu dept store. Near subway line. Stop for Airport... More

During our recent trip to Tokyo we stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and found the hotel of a very food quality. It has more than 1100 rooms and is part of a big complex which has shopping complex, entertainment centre and an office complex attached to it. Rooms are larger than normally in Japan and have all the... More

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.
