I stayed at Comfort Shirakawa between 12-14th of April 2008 and paid their standard rate which is 8.200 Yen (80 USD) per night including taxes and breakfast which is great value for money.
The location is in a residential area just outside the very centre but you are no more than a few stops on the subway from the very heart of Ginza. And access to the subway (nearest station is Kiyosumi-Shirakawa) is very easy, the entrance is just 10 meters from the door of the hotel. The hotels sells discounted 1- and 2-day passes for the subway, just beware to get a pass that works on both subway companies (Toei and Tokyo Metro). Access from Tokyo Narita Airport was also very easy, take the Limousine bus to the T-CAT station (3000 Yen) and walk for 5-10 minutes and you are there.
The staff if very friendly (like anyone else in Tokyo), their English is so-so but they are more than happy to fulfil any request. The room is quite small but that is common for most Tokyo hotels. The bed is rock-hard but that seems to be the case for most hotels as well. I must admit, it was rock hard but by no means uncomfortable. The bathroom is small with a small bathtub and a toilet equipped with a number of Japanese gadgets that you’ll just have to try out. There is free WiFi in the room and a fridge for putting beverages and other stuff in. The room was very quiet so I slept very well.
If you want some great take away food, exit the hotel and turn left. On the next corner across the intersection there is a small place that sells just great food for no money at all. Just around the corner of the hotel there is a supermarket (the one with two floors) that is just great, pick up all the stuff you need. Breakfast was nothing exciting but gives you a basic filling with coffee, bread, some cereals and not to forget the rice balls.
Conclusion: good hotel that gives you some great value and the location is perfect with the subway metres away. A very strong 4 is my overall verdict.
