We stayed here for just one night for the proximity of this hotel to the fish market. It is conveniently
located only five minutes away from the Tsukiji stop of the Hibiya line, and a five minute walk in the other direction to the market - very handy considering how early we had to get there in order to queue up for the auction.
We first arrived at 9am but the room was not ready, so we took the opportunity to explore the nearby temple outer Tsukiji fish market which had lots of food shops open. Normal check-in isn't available until later in the afternoon but we took the option of paying an extra 1000yen to check in at 12pm since we were exhausted from all the travelling.
The room is small - remember this is Tokyo - but was most importantly clean. It had all the usual amenities including yukatas and slippers, but no in-room safe which seems to be the norm in japan. Showering was a pleasure as there was no problem getting hot water and the shower head provided a strong jet of water.
No major complaints overall, really - except maybe that the bed was too soft. Light sleepers may find this an issue if you wake up every time your partner tosses and turns. I'd recommend staying here solely for the purpose of getting to the fish market or if you want to be particularly close to Ginza without paying the obligatory Ginza hotel price tag. As part of our pre planned itinerary we stayed in Asakusa, a livelier neighbourhood, for the rest of our trip.
