We were mentally prepared for a below-average stay here. Not too difficult to find, exit C9 and cross 3 short streets. The “lobby” is extremely run-down, just a simple counter and co-shared with the dining area. Room is really small for luggage storage and packing. Everything were in bad shape; even the carpet was worn out and floor has slight... More

I knew from the minute we walked in that this was not going to be a great experience. We happened to come in the back entrance and my daughter said, "this looks like a place they would film a horror movie". The place is dark and dingy. The front staff only had one person who spoke some English and he... More

Room was small and everything were worn out, even a hole on the floor. Smell of smoke everywhere, fortunately window can be opened but still!!! There's a public bath on top floor so you could escape from the tiny bathroom. No wifi, but location was pretty good and cheap.

If you're fat and have a hard time maneuvering in small places, you will not like this hotel at all. If you're American and used to American sensibilities, you probably will not like this hotel at all. If you're a fat American (like I am) well... First of all, the bad stuff: Its small. I mean... SMALL. Even if you're... More

The room was tiny, however the dirtiness was nonacceptable! there was dust everywhere on the furniture and there was human hair in the fridge!! what's more, you cannot adjust the aircon temperature in your room, as it is a...

We took the train from the airport (faster then taken the bus), once we arrived the station, we had a hard time figure out our direction, so it's much easier to take the taxi straight to the hotel (don't forget to have the hotel fax you the name and the street in Japanese), the room was clean, but small in...

This hotel is a good value if you are a solo traveler on business. Rooms are clean but very small with no closet or drawer space to speak of. Bathroom is tiny, but has the nice Japanese toilet. Included breakfast service is excellent, with choice of many different foods and beverages. Recommend this hotel for a solo business traveler or... More

This place is a nice place to stay, if you are on business trip. Since Tokyo is very costly, there are few places to stay on a shoe-string budget..

For a hotel in the heart of Tokyo, the hotel room (triple sharing) was reasonably priced. The room though small was comrortable and clean. There was a hearty buffet breakfast. There was an English speaking man at the hotel counter who was very helpful. A big plus factor was the location:near the train station,a lot of restaurants nearby. They said... More

The rating I gave for this hotel is based on the fact that all hotels in Tokyo are pretty bad. If this were in another country like Hong Kong (where I'm from), it wouldve received the lowest rating. The hotel itself reminds me of an hourly hotel, and I wouldnt be surprised if it is one of the functions. The... More
