Hotel Mets Koenji
Reviewed July 31, 2013

...including a Marriott in Stamford, CT that i am still willing to trash nearly 30 years down the road because it was so noisy. Not even sure it's still there, but since you can book a weekend night (in fact, THIS weekend) for $109, i suspect it is the same one.

But I digress yet again. Just outside the north exit of Koenji station, a few stops from Shinjuku and not all that far from Tokyo station on the busy Chuo line, I was a bit apprehensive of noise problems. Fear not. Even though my room was directly overlooking the train station (did I mention it was the busy Chuo line?), I had to actually press my ear against the inner window (of course it's double-paned, thick glass with 6-inch separation, and tightly sealed.

Maybe I'm going on a little much about the soundproofing, but all I really care about in a hotel room when I am traveling on business is quiet, hot water, clean sheets (at least to start- I'd rather save water than change them every day during an extended stay, and Mets has a green magnetic card you can put on the door if your sheets are clean enough), and internet, wired or wireless. Don't care about hotel restaurants; a little breakfast is nice, and Mets has a hot one, and cappuccino/espresso to boot. A waffle-maker is a little much to ask for in Japan.

Rooms not as tiny as some I have been in, but typical for Tokyo; about half the size of the one I just came from in Beijing (FX; a little more than half the price).

Otherwise, not much to say about this place. Reception handed me a key when i went to check in at 2:45; I've had to wait 5 minutes when I've tried to check in 4 minutes early in Japanese hotels, so this extraordinary flexibility was welcome.

I'm told it's a slightly bohemian neighborhood, and there were more street musicians than usual, but didn't really get a chance to experience the neighborhood as business was elsewhere (as always).

Koenji is a great place to stay. On the JR line and close to Shinjuki but quainter and less pricey. So much fun exploring the streets and stores and restaurants and tiny bars.
The hotel is basic and without much character but clean, quiet and comfortable with large windows.
Don't eat there, the restaurant is average but loads of good and cheap food around.
The sushi in the supermarket is sooo good!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the square

I've been to Tokyo about 10 times in the past 5 years. We normally stay in Ginza or Shibuya / Shinjuku. We wanted to stay in a bit more of a " real" neighborhood and see the daily life yet be close to everything. I could not have aksed for more then the Hotel Mets. Being a yankee fan I was happy not to see any " NY Mets" decorations! ;)

The hotel is a cut above the average business hotel. great location above the Chou line JR station.. soo many shops, and even a public bath house a few blocks away. A great neighborhood and a clean, modern and well designed hotel. our room was $150 including tax and breakfast and at peak times and with a bad exchange rate! .. so not too bad . If you are looking for a fun place to stay that is not the typical tokyo thing and want a clean, modern, good size room ( for Tokyo) and great tokyo neighborhood experience I highly suggest the Mets Koenji. Please note I am VERY picky jaded New Yorker .
