Incredible staff! They were so helpful so friendly. Room was great in any sense, the only thing is lack of wireless lan in, you need to go to lobby or plug your laptop in the room. I think I won t make any research hotel for my next stay in Tokyo, Mystays would be my permanant hotel..

My responsibility was to find a decent, comfortable and very affordable hotel for a group of Americans who had just spent a week doing tsunami relief work. This place fit the bill. Being on a tight budget, we couldn't afford anything frilly, but I also didn't want to stay anywhere resembling a hostel.

The hotel is adjacent to the train station and within easy reach of sights such as Senso-ji Temple. There are plenty of eateries and restaurants in the area, many of them very good. The hotel itself feels quite cramped and small, but this being Tokyo, that's almost just a given. We each had our own single room, extraordinarily small by American standards, but again, pretty typical for Japan. The rooms felt clean and new, very nicely decorated in stylish, warm colors and equipped with AC, TV, and private bathrooms with deluxe multifunctional toilets (something we don't have in the States and that makes using the toilet a whole new experience!). The staff was friendly. There is a convenience store located inside the building.

Wi-Fi is only available in the tiny first-floor lobby, which was a nuisance. There are no other conveniences or extras, making the overall experience comfortable but basic.

But the best part is the price. I came expecting something grungy and hostelly, and this definitely was neither. It's an incredible value in an expensive city, but not a destination hotel.

Spent a week in Tokyo with my wife on holiday. I can't remember where I got the recommendation for MyStays, but I was really surprised and wary of the fact that you can stay in Tokyo for just above $100/night.

MyStays was exactly what it advertised on its webpage: no frills, just clean, efficient, and convenient accommodations. You won't get front desk service that cater to your every need, but they are polite and helpful if you need assistance.

Most people tend to want to stay in the heart of Tokyo where the heart of the action is, but Asakusabashi is actually a perfectly nice area very close from the Asakusa and Ueno area where there's a good deal of more the locals' traditional lifestyle. In fact, we were more content and opted to spend our last 2 days exploring this area than the more touristy areas. For budget travelers, there's also an adjoining quicky mart next door as well as a grocery store half a block away to help shave your dining costs. The restaurants in the neighborhood are also decent enough for the locals and daily swarms of salarymen to visit, and typically about 20% more reasonable than in downtown.

Great value for the location, price, and quality of accommodations. I would definitely return here.

This was an excellent base to explore Tokyo. The rooms were small, but so are most rooms in Japan. Was very clean inside and handy with the 24hr lawsons. To be honest I cant fault anything that was wrong.

Room Tip: Try get a higher floor.. Good views

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, every day clean towels, toothbrush etc. bathroom full of bath supplies and if you needed more, you could get it a reception. Attached to a 24 hour convenience store, very close to the station and a 10 minute walk to Akihabara. Next time in Tokyo, this will be the place i'll be stying again!

Hotels in Japan aren't cheap and at the price of around $100 usd per night, this hotel was one of the least expensive ones (with good reviews) we could find. It was located a block away from the JR Line and 4 blocks from the Tokyo subway station. We frequently used the Tokyo subway, and 4 blocks is not a short distance when you're exhausted after having gone around the city the entire day, but it wasn't that bad.

Though the room was small, it was clean and new. The room consisted of a double sized bed, a working table, a narrow desk and an ensuite bathroom. There was also a fridge, a safety deposit box, free wired internet, drinking cups and glasses and an electric kettle. Though the bathroom was small, it was clean and had the usual Japanese-styled bidets.

Hand soap, body soap, shampoo and conditioner were dispensers. The towels were white and looked clean. Other amenities were available in the lobby. Use of washing machine and dryer were available for free at the ground floor. There was also an ice dispenser. Free wifi was available at the lobby.

The hotel didn't seem to have a restaurant, but there was a convenient store in the ground floor and a supermarket just nearby.

One thing we didn't like was their television showing only 1 Japanese channel. Everything else was pay-per-view. They seemed to have locked the channel scanning function of the remote control. Each pay-per-view video cost Y1000.
