“Small, no wifi in the bedroom”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stayed in Hotel Route Inn last year. The location is not so good for the traveler with big luggage. Although it's just a few minutes from Metro, it takes about 10-15 minute walk to Asagaya Station. The room was small and there was no wifi in the bedroom and we had to use it in the lobby.

We are a group of 4 adults travelling for leisure and stayed 6 nights at this Hotel. One of my companions chose this Hotel because of the price and its proximity to the Metro and JR stations. Our booking was made online less than 2 weeks before our trip and it cost us 115USD per room per night.

My estimate is that the whole room, including the bathroom about 26 sqm. I stayed at a twin room with 2 double beds. 2 luggages can fit on the floor. Bathroom is pre-fab - the ones that are usually seen on a boat/cruise ship. From the outside, it looked like the bathroom was built as part of the room but when inside, it felt like it wasn't really bolted on the floor but personally I didn't have any problem with this. It has a bathtub with a shower. It had all the basic ammenities that a room can have on an economical level. Shampoo, conditioner, soap are in big pump dispensers that are daily replenished. Hairdryer, toothbrush kits, shaving kits, their version of a hot kettle, tea bags, teacups are there as well. Only local channels are available on TV. Pay TV can be accessed but I think its still in Japanese. Room comes with buffet-style breakfast. The way the food are cooked changes everyday but always has this format - egg, processed meat, fried meat or vegetables, salad, miso soup, rice, dessert, bread, coffee, tea. Free internet with LAN cable available in-room; no wifi.

The Hotel has free wifi within the lobby (24 hours). The restaurant only opens at 7-9am for breakfast service. Several vending machines are available. It stocks items from water to beer to international phone cards that can call most countries - Philippines included, 19min for 1000yen. There is a complimentary ladies relaxation room on the 7th floor with very good high quality massage chairs. My only regret is that I only discovered this on my last night. Computer booths and an ice machine are just off the lobby. Lobby has a door leading to a well-stocked convenience store called Recods.

The Hotel is about 15 meters from the Minami-Asagay station on the Marunouchi Metro Line. It is about 45 meters from the JR Asagaya Station (JR Chuo Line). Asagaya Jazz St. (no cars) is around 25 meters away and has restaurants, bars, shops. At the end of this Street is a mid-class department store Seiyu. This is right beside the JR Asagaya Station. It has a grocery on the first 2 floors.
Minami-Asagaya Station (Marunouchi Metro Line) is 6 stops (20 min) away from Shinjuku and 14 stops (20-40 min) away from Ginza.

Though limited in spoken english, everyone in the Hotel are very much willing to help. They are very patient and will use "sign" or visual drawings just so you can understand each other.

Happy Travels!

Room Tip: Choose the room with double beds, its more spacious.

This hotel is great for the money! My boyfriend and I stayed in the semi double room, the room is small, but that's expected ,but it's very clean and comfortable and that't the most important thing! To get here from Narita does take about 2 hours, but narita is pretty far from tokyo so that's expected. My boyfriend and I don't know any Japanese,but we're able to find our way here pretty easily. From narita take the keisei line to Napporri then transfer to the jr line to shinjuku then from shinjuku get on the marunouchi line and get off on Minami asagaya (I think the total cost was around 1380 yen). The hotel is on the same main road as the metro station ,right across from a fire station, very easy to find! The breakfast here is awesome! It's a Buffett with soo many choices, it's great that it's included ,it's very filling.I guess some would say this location is king of far, but it's only 4 or 5 stops from shinjuku, for the money we spent on this hotel we could not have gotten a better deal in Tokyo!
