Stayed there two nights in July 2013. As others have said the rooms are smaller than is currently fashionable, but there's a big bed, large TV, good wifi, enough space to move around - if you don't plan to practice waltzing in the room, I'm not sure you need more. The bath/shower is indubitably a bit small. Staff are friendly and speak some English. The location is close to Shinbashi station, an easy hop on the suburban line from Tokyo. If you take the Narita express to Tokyo youre ticket will work for there too. There's an inexpensive cafe serving Japanese food with an English menu if you ask. If you crave Western food there';s a McDonalds just up the road.
But if you are new to Japan this might not be the hotel for you. As implied above, quite a few of the instructions are only in Japanese, and the breakfast is miso soup, salt fish, etc. - if you like to follow Rice Krispies around the world, this isn't the place to look. But if you do go there, note how to use the air conditioning (vital at this time in Tokyo) - it's fine when you figure it out. Insert the key in the room holder to get the electrics going, use the middle buttons to set the room temperature and the top button to switch it on, then wait a minute and it'll work.
