Big rooms, more like Uni Halls of residence

Big rooms, fridge in room, small kitchenette in room, cheap Laundry
Spent 4 nights here while visiting Tokyo. Close to a subway station so you can get to anywhere you need fairly easily. There is a supermarket nearby and a fridge and small kitchen in the room which was great for us as we are travelling on a budget. Staff very efficient, as always in Japan. Free umbrellas when it rains and cheap laundry, machines are free to use if you have your own powder, 50 Yen for powder from reception. Free fast wifi only in lobby.

Great hotel but a little far from Tokyo

Cheap budget hotel
i booked for 1 person but i received a room that was normally for 2 people. lucky! my room was very spacious, clean and modern. cleaning is only available if you stay more than 7 nights, otherwise they charge for the service. because it is some distance away from metropolitan tokyo, you may need to add an extra 20-30 min for some of your trips. if you do stop at higashiojima station, make sure you take the ojima exit. this is only a 5 min walk to the hotel. the other exit can take 10-15 min. you will be living in suburbia tokyo. you can buy food cheaply from the nearby supermarket daiei.

Excellent Value for Money with nice features

Steam Bath, Friendly Staff
we stayed at refre forum for about a week and found the hotel to be a good value for money deal. the room size was small, but that is almost a norm in tokyo and one really can't complain much about it. they also provide a small mini kitchen which we found extremely useful. the steam bath and sauna in the basement was nicely done and a good place to relax at the end of the day. the hotel is a good 7 mins walk to the higashi ojima train station (from where you can change trains and pretty much go anywhere in tokyo) and about 3 mins walk to a supermarket to get your daily needs.

Nice Experiment

Nice Staff
i looked for the hotel address one day ago before i checked-in. because it is located in an alley, not on main road side. however, just like alice in wonderland, into the lane, you will find the modern and confortable hotel. the hotel is very clean. also, their staff are very nice and friendly especially the reception serviced in the front desk.

very spacious room

onsen and supermarket
Location is great, its more where the locals live however its on a great metro line which results in very few changes to the main attractions.

very helpful staff

very spacious room
Refre forum is located in higashi-ojima. It is quite a distant from any main attractions. However, this area offers a subtle japanese way of lifestyle. Very authentic of japanese way of living. Refre forum is a dormitory inn located in this area. First. we were a bit upset knowing that the hotel isn't exactly a hotel. It is more to a dormitory inn, however, after knowing their services and how spacious their rooms are (believe me hotels in japan are very difficult to find a spacious room), we are very satisfied indeed
