Clean andn comfy hotel at very good location”
Pros: Very clean and comfortable room. Nice and English speaking staff. With 24 hours restaurant and supermarket very near the hotel. Near Ikebukuro Shopping Center and Sunshine City. Lots of things to buy on discounted price. Near Otsuka Station JR Line and Higashi-Ikebukuro Subway. Near Iglesia ni Cristo Locale of Tokyo. Cons: They only clean the room upon check out. Hotels in Japan are really expensive.

All of our staff are pleased to hear that you were satisfied with our services and location. It will be our pleasure to welcome you again in the future.

Good location and nice staff at reception”
This hotel locates near JR Otsuka station which is only 5 minutes walk from the station. Reasonable price with such good location and nice and tidy room, it is certainly a hotel value-for-money. If you go from JR Otsuka stattion, there is a steep slope on the way heading for the hotel. For girls with builky and heavy luggages may found it devastating to walk up that "hill". You may of course wait in from of the station and wait for the tram. It takes only 3 minutes for the tram to get from JR Otsuka Station to the next stop which is nearest to the hotel. Then it takes only less than 1 minute walk from the stop to the hotel. Keep in mind that the waiting time for the tram could be long and the last tram would be around 8pm. Not a good choice if in a rush. Another choice to get to the hotel would be from JR Ikebukuro Station, Higashi-exit. Though it would take around 15 minutes walk, you will pass through the renowned Sunshine-Dori and loads of other shops along by. The reception of the hotel is located on the 1/F and you will need to waslk up a stairs from the ground floor. A lift could take you up from the ground floor to all other floors of the hotel. However, the operating time of the lift has been 0800 - 2200. For all other time, you will have to walk up and down the stairs. Some of the room amenities are available at the Hotel Lobby. You may take from the Lobby for what you need for free. Some of the amenities are charged. If you are staying here for more than 1 night and you have not bring your own towels, you may take from the Lobby as well. But you will have to take it as soon as possible since its limited in supply and they would not refill the basket if all towels are taken. This hotel will charge for cleaning service if you would like their cleaning staff to tidy up your room. I would recommend this hotel for short stay.
Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro is highly recommended for budget travelers. Very near the train and subway stations, restaurants and convenience stores. The rooms are clean and the staff are very accommodating.

Good value hotel”
i've stayed 2 nights in this hotel, so don't be surprised if you see two reviews from me for this hotel. good hotel value for the period i stay there. very professional staff. the room was small but you probably won't find any bigger in tokyo for this price. although small, the room was very nice and spotless with all the amenities one could need. there's even a coin laundry service at the hotel. the area is quiet but location good because the hotel is at a walking distance from two jr line stations: otsuka and ikebukuro. and both stations are close to the more touristic sites. from otsuka station, take the exit on the right and go straight ahead (follow the tramway path) until you see a motorbike shop on your right hand side. in front of you is a shell gaz station and the hotel is on the right. it's a 5 mn walk maximum from otsuka station.
Comfortable and clean hotel at good location”
the stay at flexstay higashi-ikebukuro inn was great. i selected the hotel based on pictures of the room which had simple and neutral decor and the room didn't disappoint. i liked the simple and elegant colour choices. bed was a super single and was roomy enough for one. room was big enough for me. there was a kitchenette which i didn't use at all. the only minor con was that i visited tokyo in the heat of summer and the air-conditioning took a long time to cool down the room. also, although i got a non-smoking room, i thought i smelt a faint smell of smoke in the room, though it wasn't strong enough to bother me. the hotel was located about 15-20 mins from ikebukuro station and about 7-10 min from otsuka station. the former route was a bit of a drag to walk in the scorching summer heat but on a fine day, there are lots of sights to see as you walk past the sunshine city mall. compared to a previous hotel where i stayed which was located in a slightly sleazy area of ikebukuro, this hotel is located in a quiet residential area and is probably great for families as well. staff were friendly and and spoke good english. amenities such as toothbrushes, hairbrushes were free for taking at the tiny but sufficient lobby. free wifi was also available at the lobby though i wished it could also be extended to the rooms so i wouldn't have to go to the lobby to check my iphone. lan was available in rooms. sound insulation in the rooms seemed pretty good as i wasn't able to hear any noise outside my room. i was also playing music in mine and nobody came knocking at my door. all in all, the room was great value for money at a good location and i would definitely stay here again!
Fit for both short & long stay”
Peaceful stay at Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro. Dipping in the hot tub after the long day was terrific. There was not much noise at the night. I can prepare a simple meal by a microwave in my room.
10 Min walk on Kasuga Dori to Ikebukuro area”
Upon exiting the Shin-Otsuka station off the Marunouchi line my wife and I walked 20min in rainy weather carrying luggage. I suggest taking a cab to the hotel or taking the JR line and exiting Otsuka station. The hotel is clean and the staff is exceptionally friendly and spoke conversational english. One notable trait is the size of this hotel is larger than the other hotels at the same price. We like the fact that Ikebukuro is a close walk down Kasuga Dori and from there Shibuya and Shinjuku are close train rides on the JR line. Not so much dining areas near the hotel itself, but again walking to Ikebukuro you will find lots of Ramen shops and some sushi restaurents there. Sunshine City building is in Ikebukuro where you will finds floor after floor of shopping and if interested, Namja park. Its an amusement park on the 3rd floor primarily for young children. Overall the Hotel stands near a great Area of Tokyo and puts you near other great areas, however, the walk to the closeby station is a negative.
Two nights stay at the Weekly Mansion Hotel Higash”
I am thankful that I was allowed to enter my room two hours before the check in time. The room was clean and bright. The internet connection was fast. The hotel's location was very strategic and close to shopping malls and stores along Ikebukuro. I will choose to stay in the same hotel if ever I get the chance to come back in Tokyo.
great place, great location AFFORDABLE”
Stayed at the Weekly Mansion Higashi Ikebukuro for 2 weeks, the room was a decent size for a solo traveler or even a couple. There is a sink and electric stove if you need to cook. The bathroom was clean, but a bit cramped - not such a big deal. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from otsuka station and only 10 minutes from major station Ikebukuro. There are a few japanese restaurants in the area, serving traditional Japanese foods. The area is quiet, once the window is closed it is sealed well, to cut outside sound. overall my stay was pleasant, the hotel is very affordable, great location and comfortable. I recommend this hotel to any solo traveller or couple. Great place!
A good spot for the solo traveler”
Near the action, yet away from the noise, Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro has always been my preferred choice for my solo trips

OK Budget Hotel”
Having stayed at a lot of similar hotels, including other MyStays, this really wasn't the best. It was a bit worn out and musty. However, the staff were very kind and the value for money and location were quite good. It's actually a really easy walk to Ikebukuro Station proper, even though it isn't the closest. (It's also worth noting that the do not make up your room, and it's a bit like an extended stay mixed with a budget hotel.)
Dear Anna, Thank you for your stay with us. It is great honor to have your satisfaction about our staff and location. And also, we apologize for the inconvenience you had experienced this time. This review has already been shared to all our staff and it would definitely make our service improve. We look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely, HOTEL MYSTAYS HIGASHI-IKEBUKURO
Fantastic Budget Option”
Pros -Super affordable (booked one night online, then extended reservation another two nights once arrived. Extension nights came down to approx ¥5000-5400) -Inexpensive laundry facilities and fairly standard functional rooms and other facilities. All kinds of toiletries and other essentials provided. Rooms have fridge, kettle, microwave, sink, AND basic stovetop if looking to save with 7/11 fine dining (didn't inquire about cooking utensils though) -Helpful and professional front desk staff (examples being stored and moved our luggage when we changed rooms, helped with directions...) -Nearby to Ikebukuro, 7-11 across street, a few 24 hour chain restaurants close by -Yamamoto line fairly close Cons -Just location really. Not in Shibuya/Shinjuku which means have to take train lines to other areas, and trains are still a bit of a walk and shut down usually before midnight -Try to get a nonsmoking room if you don't smoke (had non-smoking nights 1&2, but smoking room night 3 wasn't as nice)
Great value for location and hotel”
If you get a discount through Agoda, this is a good value place to stay. The staff are very friendly and service from them are great. They allow you to store their luggages there before check in time. You can store luggage there after check out too if you return to get them later in the day. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk away from the Ikebukuro station where all the stores and malls are. Many low priced restaurants are just steps away from the hotel. We enjoyed our stay here and can recommend to anyone.
Dear Guest Thank you for staying with us Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro. We appreciate your review for us. For further improvement of our quality of service, we promise we will do our best. We are looking forward to seeing you again. Best Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro
My preferred business hotel close in the Ikebukuro area, I can walk to Otsuka or Ikebukuro station without problem. Have been there ~20 times in 2 years: quality is fairly consistent, rooms are always clean and you get some equipment if you need to cook by yourself. Some convenient stores are also close so all in all a good business hotel in Tokyo.
nice hotel and friendly staff”
this hotel is clean and quiet, it's also good location, from osaki station is take 5min walking, or ikebukuro station 5min too. from the room we could have nice view of tokyo and sky tree tower! l could appreciate the bath and there is some stuff for cooking if you'd like to. also is pretty cheap!
Value for money and it's comfortable stay”
This place is near to JR Otsuka station, about 10 mins walk from the station and 18mins from Ikebukuro station. Fyi, the biggest Pokemon center is at ikebukuro. There is a shopping center at JR Otsuak (e.g. Uniqlo and Loft) but we didn't visit. There are plenty of restaurants along the route back to this hotel from Otsuka Station. There is a 7-11 directly opposite the hotel and it is very convenient. Though it's like an apartment style hotel (with no rooms service), they allow us to change our towels everyday and it was sufficient. The place is standard size Japanese hotel room (relatively small but it's alright for us). The staff speaks standard English not excellent but good enough. Won't mind staying here again given that we were looking for cheaper alternative, compared to hotels around shinjuku and Shibuya. Wifi is relatively unstable but it's better than nothing. Just reconnect every now and then at night. Morning wifi connection is fine. Probably due to lesser usage by other ppl.
Loved our stay!!!”
The room is small but one of the bigger options when we compared it to other hotels within our price range. It was cozy and comfortable. A few minutes walk to the subway and Ikebukuro station with plenty of shops and places to eat at along the way.
The night shift manager was so helpful and kind!”
The location is little far from the stations, JR Otuka is close(10min). You will find good stores near JR Ikebukuro station(18min). But the Hotel is a really good place to stay. Very clean, you will have a private bathroom(It's not a capsule). The room has little kitchen, I was busy I did not have time to cook. It was great!
Dear Junghyun, Thank you for your stay with us. It is great honor to have your satisfaction in this time. And also, we apologize for the inconvenience you had experienced.
