If you want to explore one of many satelite communities in Tokyo Metropolitan City, this hotel is highly recommended. Away from the center of Tokyo, yet connected with Hachioji JR Station that runs special express to Shinjyuku in half an hour and Keio Line that also brings you to Shinjuku, it's a small but comfortable hotel with amenities including Internet access in your room. It is across a bus stop that brings you to Hachioji from and takes you to both Haneda and Narita International Airports by airport shuttle bus (reservation can be handled at the hotel). In front of the hotel are Seven Eleven, Lawson and Family Mart all of which sell everything from tooth brushes to wine and sake to boxed lunch. Nearby at the Keio Line Hachioji Station is a shopping center whose top two floors have restaurants that range from Italian, Chinese, to Japanese cuisines. Five minutes walk away, at the JR station, there is a larger shopping center.
Although I was a single guest, I reserved online through a discount site a double bed room, knowing the small size from my previous stay, and that was a good idea. The bathroom was very clean with amenities and washlet. On the fourth floor was a laundry room whih was handy. My plan did not include breakfast but there was buffet breakfast in the lobby restaurant. They didn't serve lunch or dinner but with many restaurants and pubs in the neighborhood, there was no shortage of choice.
The staff at the front desk were friendly, eager to help, and efficient. The safe for valuables was next to the front desk, free of charge. A map of neighborhood was available. The hotel was busy with group tours from China to junior high students for karate tournaments, but each floor was very quiet.
Hachioji is an interesting mixture of deep history (the Imperial Cemetary of the Taisho Emperor and Empress and the Showa Emperor and Empress is half an hour bus ride) and modern commuting town. If you want to experience beyond the usual must see places in Tokyo, you might enjoy staying at this hotel for a couple of days and explore the area.
