“Cheap and Good- Value for Money”
Reviewed May 12, 2009

Am staying here for 6 nights and this is my 3rd night here. The room is clean and it comes with a flat screen Sharp TV, air-con and LAN wireless internet. It is a relatively okay size for Tokyo and even comes with a mini fridge! I have chosen to stay at the 'ladies only' level and it does make me feel somewhat more comfortable.

The Hotel looks new and is about 6-8 minutes walk from the Minami Senju Station (off the Hibiya line and 3 stops away from the Ueno station). Quite easy to locate and considering how much I'm paying, really can't ask for more. There is a discounted rate for people staying for 6 nights and more. I was also given a bag filled with 'goodies' (yukata, slippers,toothbrush,toothpaste&towel).

Staff here don't speak much English but it doesn't really make things difficult. They are polite and friendly and you can tell that they try to be as helpful as possible.

Like the review above, I stayed in Hotel New Koyo during my 1st night and Hotel Hikari is definitely a step up for a bit more Yen. It's definitely money well-spent as Hotel New Koyo is sure showing it's age.

On the flip-side, the pillow is a bit too high/hard for my liking and the shower is downstairs(level 1). There is a few basins and toilets at every floors though so it's really not so inconvenient.

I lived on New Koyo in, Hotel Hikari is across the steet across 7 eleven.

I moved there after 3 days with no aircodition i could not sleep.

I Lived there for 10 days, excelent Hotel.
Lan in Room(there was a cable in the room) and wifi too.
Cable tv too, and really good Aircondition, i accidently put it too low and froze so i had to put it up.
Besode that, tha staff are not good at english but the know the basic.
If you need something they can help you out and point out on the maps.
They have pay shower and Japanese Bath, a wonderfull place i might add, used it every day excelent to bi in hte bath after a hard day walking around i might add.
The room are small, abut more then then enough for me i might add.

it cost like 500 yen more a day, but it was worth every extra yen.
It had a Laundry and toilets on every floor.

A great Hotel, i Highly recomend it.
They even took up my packade i had sent over there when i had to many bags to carry on my shoppig spree ofr my loved ones back home, it was waiting on my room on arrival then next day(it had come when it was out in town)

Curfew 1 am too 6 am.

i do recomend that hotel if you are near Taito.
