As the other reviews state, small but well equipped and convenient to the Tokyo Metro (few doors to the left for underground entrance), JR lines (across pedestrian overpass - elevators on both sides) and Keisei Skyliner (10min walk - we kept getting lost and ended up following signs from the metro). We stayed here for 4 nights just before leaving Japan. From the JR line, we had to go up and over the overpass - you can see the vertical signboard on your far left from the top of the overpass. Plenty of restaurants, shops and a couple of convenience stores handy.
We didn't eat here, tried out the cafe next door (even ventured to try the "strawberry cream coffee" - interesting...) and Starbucks in the JR station.
The hairdryer is better than the average hotel dryer, and the straightening tongs are a nice touch in the lady's corner of the countertop. I didn't use the facial steamer (which hubby thought was a kettle on the first day LOL). The actual kettle is great, but he discovered that the trouser press is not good for drying socks, drenched after a Tokyo spring shower.
Room was spotless, shower pressure great. No iron/board in room, it wouldn't fit in a room that size! The bed was not supersoft, but after the rock-hard beds we had experienced around Japan, it was sheer bliss for my aching back and shoulders.
Staff were quite friendly and polite. The 'luggage storage' is a thick net draped over your luggage near the lift. We called it the "safety net" LOL
Overally, would def stay here again, even though it was crowded for hubby and I in a double room with queen size bed (we had to take turns packing suitcases so we didn't get in each other's way).
