Do a little research and you will see there are not many options in this price range in Tokyo. I used this as a one nighter in and one nighter out of Tokyo because it is not a central location to do the city. HY is neither charming nor memorable. It is a little worn around the edges; the rooms are small and a bland combination of beige on beige; the neighborhood uninteresting except for the canal nearby. But then, if you are looking in this price range, none of that matters too much to you, right? So on to the positives: The staff is friendly and competent and speak reasonable English. The rooms are clean. The mattress is comfortable. The shower is hot and strong. The wifi downstairs is decently fast (none in the rooms but there is a LAN connection). The street is nice and quiet at night. There are convenience stores 2 minutes away on foot open late at night and early in the morning. Best of all there is a train station 5 minutes away on foot that is convenient to both airports and to the main Tokyo station. Stylistically and spaciously HY is nothing to crow about- until you have seen the alternatives- then as a value it moves instantly into the Very Good category. I will be staying here again when hopping off to other Japanese cities.
