“Great Value - Great Breakfast Great Location”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is a great hotel !!!
The rooms are small, the bathtub is small and there is no dresser - you are, after all, travelling in Tokyo Japan but that is where the smallness ends
1) Great Free Hot Breakfast - Eggs and Sausage, Pastries and Salad. It changes 3 times in a week
2) The rooms are very clean and they are cleaned every day with a change of Linens and Nightware
3) There is a fridge in every room
4) The staff was very friendly and helpful
5) It is convenient to the Suitengae and Akhavusa Subway Lines
6) It is very convenient to the Tokyo City Airport Transit Station
7) There are plenty of low cost eateries near the hotel

It was the best Shower I have ever had in a hotel !!

Room Tip: A block away from the City Airport Transit Station only $30(US) to the airport better than the subwa...

Bit of a late review, but stayed in January 2013 for 3 weeks. Travelling on a tight budget meant that picking a hotel within our price range was extremely limited as I wasn’t very keen on staying in a shared Ryokan. If you come directly from the airport on one of the shuttle buses they drop you off quite close by to the hotel, probably a 20 minute walk. The hotel is located in a small back alley just off of a big main road so you need to pay attention to signs (look up). There was a 7/11 just around the corner and two different subway entrances less then 15 minutes away from the hotel. Ideally located down the road from Akihabara, took us about 20-30 minutes to walk there or about 5 minutes by Taxi (a lot of taxi drivers DO NOT speak English so I advise you know familiarize yourself with at least the main road so you can tell him where to stop or grab a hotel card so they can at least try and navigate for you. The hotel itself was small and quaint, the check in is located in the basement and the area is shared with the breakfast buffet seating. There is a laptop at the front desk which can be used to print out any passes or tickets as well as free wifi (you need to get a new password daily) available in this area, they also had the convenience of a drink vending machine next to the bathroom and a laundry room for washing (I think it cost around 100 yen or so to do your washing). Our room was a non smoking double which a lot of westerners would find small but was fine for our needs as we literally were only there for sleeping and showering (I was sick for three days so I was bedridden for this time but the free LAN allowed me to still find things to do and watch). The point I need to make is that if you’re travelling all the way to Tokyo and you choose a budget hotel, one would think you wouldn’t be spending all your time in the hotel room anyway. The room came with basic amenities: slippers, robes, fresh towels daily, hairdryer, fridge, kettle, tv, soap, shampoo etc. Our towels were changed daily and you can put a sign on the door for those who are more eco friendly if you didn’t want them changed frequently. There isn’t much of a view from the window but again did not care or cause any concern as we weren’t looking for a view. There is a free breakfast daily with rotations of pastries, breads, salads, meats and eggs (as well as water, coffee, juice and tea), everything was very tasty and simple but a word of advice is get downstairs early as the small seating area fills up very quickly. Rooms also have a big book of everything that feature room service menu’s as well as local restaurants and places that deliver (e.g. pizza hut which was very expensive!!) The front desk speak minimal English but my partner speaks Japanese so we were fine most of the time, the front desk is supposedly manned 24 hours, but on checking out at 5am in the morning we couldn’t find anyone around and had to bother a poor cleaner to try and get someone on the desk only to find out she was resting in a little room just located next to the front desk, I guess if we’d called out some more she would have come out but we didn’t know what to do. Overall it was a very good stay and we had zero complaints. We are returning to Tokyo in January 2014 and have booked for Villa Fontaine Ueno which I look forward too and hope it lives up to the standards held at Nihonbashi Mitsukoshimae

Room Tip: - get downstairs early to ensure a seat for the breakfast as it packs out quite quickly. - taxis on...

My second stay here. Same feeling. Ok, but not what I prefer.
I was disappointed that the floors are really messy during the day when housekeeping throws all the linens on the hallway floors.

Bed was adequate. Bathroom was clean, but too small.

This was my fourth stay at this hotel which is only 3 blocks away from my corporate headquarters and I stayed for 6 nights. The hotel is modern, comfortable and affordable and my rooms have always been immaculately clean. This is absolutely not a spacious, luxury hotel, so look elsewhere if that is what you desire or expect.

If you have never stayed in a Japanese business hotel before, you might be shocked at how small the rooms are. Then again, you might eventually begin to see and appreciate the attributes of thoughtfulness, efficiency and simplicity. The room is equipped with all the modern conveniences and the bath has wonderful water pressure and the hotel supplies virtually all bathing and shaving necessities (a big pump bottle of shower gel, shampoo, toothbrush, comb, disposable razor, comb and hair brush, qtips, toothbrush and toothpaste, so you really don't have to pack much in that category. Also, the Toto toilet includes a bidet and has a heated seat.
There is a hot water pot for making tea (no coffee), a small refrigerator, a flat screen TV , a very firm bed and an Ethernet cable (no wifi in the room so pick up a simple access point device such as an Asus which converts the wired Internet to wifi), pajamas and slippers which are small. There are also pant presses in the hallway which you can bring into your room for a quick pressing and the hotel also offers excellent dry cleaning and pressing services.
Free breakfast buffet in the morning typically consists of loosely scrambled eggs, protein such as chicken meatballs or pork sausage, varieties of breads for toasting, salad with a ginger or sesame dressing, juices, miso soup or clear broth and of course tea and (finally!) coffee.
This hotel is centrally located in the Nihonbashi area so there are plenty of restaurants and there is a 7-11 conveniently located at the end of the street.
Typical patrons of this hotel are Japanese business men, young Japanese couples and the occasional American business man like myself. Overall, the hotel offers the basics, it is minimalist but efficient, secure and comfortable.
The front desk staff are very polite and helpful and the cleaning staff are meticulous.
My advice is to use this hotel when you are here grinding out a week of work where the hotel room is not a large focal point.

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel during our trip to Tokyo. Our room was in the Annex building. The room was bigger than our expectation with updated amenities and it was very quiet during our stay and rather comfortable too.
We did enjoy the complimentary breakfast every morning very much which was really an amazing way to start our day with many basic selections. Although sometimes breakfast area can be crowded but most of the time we got comfortable seats easily.
All staffs we met during our stay were friendly, polite, efficient, and eager to help with sufficient English.
Complimentary In room high speed internet was wired with good speed, Wi-Fi only available at lobby area. We brought our Ethernet extension cable to extend the range so that we could use internet at bathroom area as well.
This hotel is in a very convenient location only 2 minute walk from Z-10 Suitengūmae Tokyo metro station (exit #2) and also not too far away from 2 H-line stations (Hibiya line H-12 Kayabachō and H-13 Ningyōchō). During our stay, we used Z-10 only since their metro system was very well designed and very easy to transfer so that there’s no need to walk to Hibiya Line in our opinion.
If you run out of Japanese Yen and in need for local currency, starting April 19, 2013, almost ALL banks’ ATMs cannot process Foreign issued card. However, at this time you can only use those cards at Japan Post office’s ATMs to withdraw money FYI. There is a post office right next to the 7-11 (Z-10 Metro exit #2 or 3) there you can get Japanese Yen easily using your ATM cards. If you preferred currency exchange, there is one on the 3rd floor of airport bus terminal (TCAT) –also right next to the metro station with reasonable rate.
Last time we visited Japan was in Jan. 2011 before the earthquake. This time, we liked it even more!! We visited Tokyo Sky Tree town, interesting Asakusa, Imperial Palace East Garden and Meiji Jingu in Tokyo and had a great day trip to Hakone and Odawara by train. We enjoyed travelling so much in this beautiful country and for sure will be back again soon.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at this wonderful hotel and would like to recommend it as an exceptional base touring beautiful Tokyo City.

While many reviewered were quite pleased with this location, I was not one of them.
The hotel is perfectly located near the TCAT station- No question this is ideal. Price per night of 8000 yen seemed high for the room and lack of services. I liked the staff. I did not like the crowded lobby nor the small elevators.
The rooms were smaller than I could have guessed, but were well maintained. New flat screen TV with adequate English TV options. I hated the tiny bathroom. Simply too tight to feel comfortable.
If I am desperate for quick room or tight on funds I would consider another stay, but I prefer a bit of breathing room in a hotel. Even by Japan standards this did not work for me.
