I ended up in this hotel which was booked for me by my Japanese colleagues.
The hotel is conveniently located in Ebisu, very close to subway and the area around is not bad with small streets and plenty of good looking Japanese restaurants. You need not be shy as most restaurants don't have English signboards on the front so it is difficult to know what food they serve unless pushing their door. If you are shy, you can walk to Ebisu garden where the beer museum stands and there you'll find western style restaurants, but it's not fun to eat western in Japan, right?
The + : the hotel is a 20mn walk from the "Kill bill"restaurant which served as the decor for this famous Taratino film. The place is worth seeing for the movie afficinado, but is a tourist trap.
The good about the hotel: the room is not that small (we're in Tokyo, small is "really" small!), the rate per night is fair including a "lean" continental breakfast, the lift is very quick, the rooms are clean.
The not so good: rooms on the street can be noisy depending on the day, it's a smoking hotel so you kind of feel like someone is smoking beside you as you go to your room, tobacco smell is impregnated (at least on the 6/F where I slept, I don't know for the other floors).
Conclusion: I would stay there again for business trip, but I won't keep special memory of this hotel.
