“Great location, but very small and dated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Our stay at the B Roppongi was nice. It is located right on the main strip of Roppongi and just steps from the subway. It was very easy to get to from the Tokyo subway station with our luggage in tow. We had a fantastic view of the Tokyo tower from our room. The room was very tiny and dated, though. There is very little room for luggage or bags, so we had to open our luggage on the bed, close it when done, and keep them standing behind the door when not in use. The bathroom was a decent size but also quite old and worn in.

Dear yelobug

Thank you for your comments and for choosing the b roppongi. We are pleased that you had a great view of Tokyo Tower from your room - it really makes you feel like you are in the centre of the city.

We do have a range of room sizes in the hotel, and all sizes are clearly listed on our website. If you would like more space for future visits, you can always select the option for a larger room.

We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to the hotel again soon.

Kind regards

We stayed at B Roppongi for 7 nights. The location was good.
it's easy to find , just a block away from Roppongi crossing or from subway exit 5, you can see the sign of the hotel.

The staff was very helpful with English speaking. They do help you with directions.
The room was small but it's enough for us (typical of Japan rooms hotel), however there were tons of restaurants, bars, and grocery stores nearby, so you don't have to worry.

Great location, just steps away from the nearest subway station. Although the subway is not one of the main interchange, it provided the convenience of travelling.

Our room faced the entrance of a nightclub, so we have morning call at around 430am when the crowd disperse :)

Room is clean and neat. We could even catch a glimpse of the Tokyo Twr from our room!

The B is in a very good location for the bars. A small block from Roppongi Crossing. It's a great place to stay if you intend on staying in Roppongi until the wee hours and want to stagger back.

It is a very basic hotel. It is very much no frills hotel. The room is small and basic and it seems like you are on a cruise ship. The washrooms were completely plastic and was obviously a mobile unit put in each room.

The breakfast was not that great. Food was basic and not very good.

The service was not good. The people could barely speak english and did not acknowledge you existence.

Roppongi is not that convenient when going to other places by subway. Just to go to Omotesando, Shibuya or Harajuko you needed to transfer lines.

Better to stay somewhere else if you plan on visiting other sites other than the Roppongi bars.

Room Tip: Get a renovated room on the 2nd floor as you may be able to catch the lobby wifi. Also, bring a lap...

Hi dlee_15,

Thank you for choosing the b roppongi and for taking the time to share your experience.
As you mentioned, our location is one of our strengths; you can explore and have fun in Roppongi without worrying about catching the last train of the night.

It is such a disappointment to hear you find our service was not good. I will share the comments with the team and try preventing it from happening again.
Some rooms such as single rooms are Tokyo sized. If you prefer a bigger room, I would like to recommend our superior twin rooms. The room size is almost doubled.

Thank you again for your review. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Kind regards,

Ryuji Chiku

The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. There was free wifi in the lobby. The breakfast was good- they had a large selection of fresh foods, both eastern and western. I liked staying in this area, it was good for nightlife.

Do ask for a room located on the back as these are more quiet–especially room 507,505 on the 5th floor and other floors that are situated at the back of the hotel.

After our initial first visit -see my previous review- we decided to give this hotel another try and stayed for a few more days. Contrary to our first visit this time we had booked a deluxe twin –at the back –overlooking a quiet street. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably sized. The bathroom has a good shower and all the amenities of a deluxe hotel although more towels would be a plus. This time our bathroom and linen was impeccable.

The best features of the hotel are the extensive breakfast –really good coffee, royal Japanese and Continental breakfast - and the helpful and friendly staff. Well trained English speaking people working here.

Although we prefer to stay in a quieter neighbourhood next time this hotel in Roppongi is well recommended for a short stay in central Tokyo.

We stayed at the b roppongi for 3 nights. The hotel is relatively easy to find, which is great. The room was spacious enough for the 2 of us to walk around and have our suitcases out and open, which was nice (since most rooms in Tokyo are relatively small). The room and bathroom were clean; however, the bathroom had a bit of a smell to it as the ventilation wasn't that great so the dampness from hot showers had seeped in; it wasn't too big a deal though.

The front desk and reception were courteous and friendly; there are very useful guides available at the front desk for sights to see and also the Tokyo metro network. The front desk also did not have any issues with us leaving our luggage after check out for half a day. Only downside to our stay is that we got a room that faced the road and the noise from passing traffic could be heard at all hours as Roppongi barely sleeps.

Tip for getting there: When coming out of the Roppongi metro station, exit from gate 5, the hotel is just down the street from that exit.

Room Tip: Avoid getting rooms facing the road as the traffic in that area is heavy. If possible, pass on rooms...

Thank you for staying at the b roppongi and for taking the time to write a review of the hotel.
We apologize about the odor you experienced. We will make sure to look into it and take care of it. As for the highway noise, you are right about Roppongi; it barely sleeps. We do try to eliminate the noise as much as we can. Next time, please let the front desk staff know about it. If there is a room open, we will be more than happy to switch the room for you. Please come back and see us!
