“Cold”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

The hotel was really cold but it was not an issue inside the rooms as the a/c also had a heating mode. Another thing that was cold was the atmosphere - there were almost no people in the common areas and the ones that were there were japanese. Beds were really hard but the staff was friendly and spoke english. You can pay with credit cards.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Although room is small but it is cosy and most importantly affordable. Place is very clean. Friendly staff, one lady even accompanied us all the way to 7Eleven to help us purchase Disneyland tickets because we are not able to key in our names in the machine in Japanese. Would definitely stay there again.

I spent here my first night in Japan, and it was a great choice. The hotel is very well located, not far from 2 subway stations and within walking distance of the Asakusa area.
The friendliness of the staff was incredible, and the whole hotel was extremely clean. The only minus is that our room had a bunk bed, which is not ideal for a couple.

This hotel was ok if not very small (you get what you pay for). I wouldn't recommend this location as a base for your stay in Tokyo. Spend a bit more to be central as you are looking at about an hour train trip to visit the Tokyo sights. We had to leave the window open so it was fairly noisy as the air-conditioner gave out a horrible smell (Reception was closed so unable to bring up the problem). The staff were friendly and you got what you paid for, if only this was in a better location!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Tokyo leg of our Japan tour. The place is easily accessible by foot from the Minami Senju subway station. Asakusa shrine and Tokyo tower is nearby.
Small (hard to find big rooms in Tokyo unless you spend a bomb) but very clean and well maintained rooms. There is a common kitchen available for use by fellow travellers. A 7-eleven and a supermarket right opposite to the hotel. At about 6000 yen per day, it was cheap by Tokyo standards.

Palace Japan is located near Minami-senju station (about 10 minutes walk)
Minami-senju is on Hibiya line so it's easy to access many tourist atreas.

There's a supermarket and 7-eleven near the hotel

The rooms were clean and I had to share bathroom with other ppl but the bathroom was also very clean.

The staffs are nice.

I stayed at the Palace japan hotel for a week and was impressed with the value for money that this cost me.
The hotel was quite new and was clean and comfortable.The room was not too small with a TV and fridge. Gentleman resided on different floors to the ladies and there were communal bathrooms, which were clean and the shower was really good. It is situated in an inner suburb of Tokyo and is accessable easily by metro.

The receptionist, a lady named Keiko was really helpful, spoke good english and gave me some good tips.

There is a large supermarket behind McDonalds near the metro station where you can buy all your essentuals and really good Japanaese sushi/food that can be heated in the microwave. If you go on your way back to the hotel in the evening, they reduce the food, which is a bonus!

There are quite a few cheaper places to eat in central Tokyo so shop around.

Go to a fleamarket or Antiques market (usually held at the weekend as they are fun and you can pick up a bargain!) Ask at the Tourist office at Asakusa.
