“Value for money”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

It was very clean and neat, very close to the Takadanobaba station and there were some eateries and a supermarket nearby which is what we were looking for when we went to Tokyo for 7 days. The room wasn't particularly big but you would expect that in Tokyo. We stayed there for all 7 nights and we had no problem with it.

Stayed here for the first three nights of our trip. Small but clean and convenietly located. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Just across the street from the JR Takadanobaba station. Considered a "college town" because of it's proximity to Waseda University, this area is decidedly less hectic than cities like Shinjuku and Shibuya. Still plenty to do and see. Great for people (like me) who like to explore the lesser known areas by foot. I will always consider the Sunroute chain of hotels first, when traveling in the east. They have won my business.

Nothing really special about this hotel - its one of the cheaper ones we were able to find around this area. The rooms and beds are small, the bathroom is small, there's basic facilities like a kettle. It's very much for businessmen and not so much for tourists! The staff are friendly and there's wifi only in the lobby. On the plus side it's right next to the train station do very convenient for travel.

This hotel was literally a 2 minute walk from Takadanobaba station. It was very clean and neat, and as the rooms were small (you are in Tokyo, so clearly you aren't getting a Western size hotel room) they were managable for my husband and I without much tripping or struggle. The hotel staff was very friendly, the area was safe. Had a BK, KFC, Mister Donut, 100 yen store, grocery store, and many Japanese restaurants on the block. We stayed here for 8 nights and traveled by Metro all around Tokyo, I would easily stay here again. Great and affordable hotel.

The hotel was very pleasant. Don't expect five star luxury - but this is a perfect option for a very clean, quiet and well priced hotel in Tokyo. Apart from the price, the location was the main attraction for me. You can literally see the train station from the hotel entrance and rail is the best way to travel around Tokyo.

The staff were all very polite and helpful. My Japanese is extremely limited, but all employees I spoke to had a reasonable level of English - some basic, some fluent, but I could always get my message across.

One thing to note, in typical Tokyo style, the rooms are very small. I stayed with a partner and was comfortable, but only for a short stay. For single or short term travel, the rooms are fine.

I would consider staying here again next time I am in Tokyo.

Hotel is small and nice, but nothing special.
The hotel is in a very convenient location just 2 minutes walk away from the big metro station.
The service was not great but the staff were friendly.
It is very good value for money.

Like other reviewers, the location of this hotel was faultless. Right opposite the train station and two stops from the madness of Shinjuku station. It was a safe neighbourhood and all the amenities right on your doorstop. I too loved the complimentary nightshirt each night!!

Yes, the rooms were small but not as small (or expensive) as Paris. We were there 6 nights and lived perfectly well out of our two suitcases for that time. The fridge was also a plus so we could buy supplies and keep cool.

The were staff lovely and helpful, room immaculately cleaned each day and free internet access in the foyer. If you're not an accommodation snob and want to be in a central Tokyo location with great access to surrounding Tokyo via the metro - this is for you.
