hotel was fine. nothing that special. the most disappointing aspect of this hotel was the service. there wasn't the attention to detail. English was poor, which is fine, but the staff also seemed to feel that anything you asked was an imposition. They were unable to find things and overall it just felt like a poorer experience.

We stayed at this hotel for seven nights. The room has a desk and chair, which was helpful for us. It is a bit cramped once you have two large suitcases, but sufficient for our needs, and probably actually bigger than a lot of other hotels in Japan. A wired internet connection was available as well as a TV with basic channels. Plenty of power points/outlets as well, which was great. The room was clean and tidy, and even when we did not wish to have the room cleaned, the maids still kindly left a package of new towels outside our door. The buffet breakfast is almost entirely suited to Japanese tastes, which was fine for us, but if you're not a big fan of Japanese breakfasts, it would be better to avoid it.

Be aware that while the hotel is upscale and professional, it is situated in an area with some "love hotels", which makes the area a little seedier than others. However, the train station is only about a 5 minute walk away, and is on two of the major Tokyo train lines. Only one stop from Ueno station, and a few more from Akihabara. VERY convenient!

While the hotel and staff do make some effort for non-Japanese speakers, the hotel is not really all that foreigner-friendly. The hotel room book (the one with services, information, etc.) was entirely in Japanese. In the laundry room, the washer and dryer instructions were also entirely in Japanese. (I would not recommend the dryer anyway, as it is VERY weakly powered and you cannot change the settings. It took several HOURS for one load of laundry to dry). At one point when I went to the front desk and asked (in Japanese) if the staff member spoke English, the person simply said "no", and that was that. However, at other times there were staff that did have some English - it was kind of hit and miss. If you have no Japanese skills whatsoever, you may find it a bit difficult.

Overall, we would probably stay here again, because of the value, cleanliness and proximity to the train station.

To be honest this hotel exceeded my expectations, the hotel looks like new, rooms are quite big for the japanese standards, the shower is very good, and the bathroom very clean.
The Hotel is 5 minutes away from uguisudani station, that is very useful, specially if you have a JR pass, that allows you to travel for free to and from central tokyo.
The staff barely speaks english, but they are very kind and attentious, and managed to explain me how to get to department store by drawing a map.
The breakfast is a bit pricy, but you should try at least once, the japanese breakfast is completely different than any other.
I definetly recommend this hotel and I will stay there again in my next trip to Japan.

Similar to a european Hotel ibis, this Japanese functional hotel has everything you need.
The rooms are small but spacious enough for Japanese standards, they're clean, the bathroom kit is functional, breakfast is correct, though it only really has the very basics of western food.
The staff speaks a basic english.
Internet (cable) in all rooms and wireless at reception.
The location is not ideal but very close to subway line H in Iryia and the train station - quick trip to Narita.

The hotel was quite out the way for our first time in Tokyo though has good transport links on theJR Yamanote line. Would have preferred a hotel nearer the Shinjuku/Shibuya/Rappongi area as these took around 45mins to get to but certainly wouldn't have got the space for the cost so its all about compromise.

Room was excellent size, extremely clean, well equipped, with excellent bathroom and powerful shower. The double bed was large and extremely comfortable. The biggest problem is that it isn't Western friendly. None of the room literature material is in English, nor is the AC remote. I asked for English but they didnt have any which is a shame as it would be so simple to create an English guide. We were unable to use the advertised 300 films on demand as simply couldn't figure it out even though we are well travelled. We also found a lack of anything to do/eat/drink nearby for the non-English, especially breakfast. Shame the hotel breakfast was ridiculously expensive, it would be easy for them to provide a basic continental breakfast with fruit, yoghurts, toast, croissants etc for a cheap price. WiFi in the lobby is good,shame not extended throughout the hotel but still proved really useful.

Overall a very good hotel but too far away from the action for Western first timers and clearly is only targeting Japanese visitors. Therefore it is unlikely we will be back.
