Good location, near to Tokyo Station (15 min walk) and with a Metro Station a few meters/yards away. A Lawson, a Family Mart, cafes, restaurants, just around the corner. And Ginza Street a 5 minute walk.
The staff is very polite (as usual in Japan) and can communicate in English.
We noticed that about half of the Hotel was refurbished, but unfortunately we got an older room. Not comfortable and because of the earthquake (or so they said) they were keeping the room hotter than usual. We couldn't sleep during the first night (28 Celsius inside, 3 Celsius outside!). After our request to lower the temperature, they said they couldn't but could send someone to open the window and keep it that way. Since this was a quiet street, this fit the bill. We could now control room temperature using curtains and window.

I guess the new rooms are a lot better.

The lobby is very poor and uncomfortable if you have to wait for someone for more than a few minutes.
In short: if you get a good price, and stays out of the hotel most of the time, the friendliness of staff makes you stay bearable

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new rooms

If looking for a clean and reasonable hotel in Ginza/Tsukiji area, this hotel is a good choice.

The room is rather small with little view, but nicely decorated with dark wood floor.
Big plus for a real hair dryer (not the one attached to the wall), a febreze bottle, and an air purifier/humidifier.

Location is perfect, within walking distance both to Ginza shopping district and Tsukiji fish market.
There are two convenience stores just across the street.

Breakfast is standard buffet style.
A bit disappointing if you only choose western food but Japanese food menu is decent.

Stayed here for three nights understanding that we were paying for location. That said, we found the front desk oddly unable to help with basic directions or recommendations. While they eventually were able to assist, we felt like we were the first people to ever ask questions like "can you suggest a good shabu shabu restaurant", or "how do we take the river cruise". Most annoying was the air conditioning. Don't bother with the controls in the room. The air conditioning (or lack there of) is controlled at the front desk. If your room is too hot or too cold, you have to call down to have them adjust. This is not explained at check-in.

The hotel is in a great area. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the Tokyo train station. However, from Narita aiport, I took a bus (1 hour) and it dropped us off within a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The neighborhood is great. The hotel isn't on a large street. The small street the hotel is located on is bustling yet quiet. There's a lot of shops, and a convenient store right across the street from the hotel, and a starbucks and a mcdonalds 3-4 blocks away.

The hotel staff was great. Their english was limited but sufficient to communicate and guide me on where to go.

The hotel room, like all Japanese hotel rooms was a small, but well laid out. I've been in similar size hotel rooms in Hong Kong, and they felt way smaller because their use of space was so poorly thought out. The was very clean and nice. Nothing to take pictures of, and nothing to complain about.

Just arrived from a great vacation in Osaka, weather was great too! The hotel is great, very nice, clean, and good service, most of all good location, just in the center of all we need. Close to the train stations which makes it easy to move around. The supermarket at bl has all good stuff. Thanks , the reviews helped us find a good hotel. Hope this helps others too!

Room Tip: Request for no smoking floor

We were stayed at this hotel for a week, overall was quite a good location if you love to do shopping at Ginza. This was my first time stayed in this hotel but for the cleanliness i will prefer Hotel Comfort that i been stayed for few times. Location was good, opposite have Family Mart and Lowson. Staff were being quite helpful too :-) if you really like to stay at Ginza, is consider not bad.
