Good hotel for the budget traveler”
This hotel provided all the basic amenities for a budget traveler that wants a single room with its own bathroom for the night at a good price. I paid less than $50 a night for my 6 night stay. Conveniently located near Ikebukuro Station, about 5 blocks away. They have a back door that takes you easily to Ikebukuro metro station. They offer a breakfast for a price but it was easier for me to just pick something up from the local stores nearby. There is a Lawsons Market next door, a Family Mart across the street and numerous eateries in the area and near Ikebukuro station. No real amenities and you just get a 8' x 12' room with it's own bathroom, which was all I needed for my stay in Tokyo. My non smoking room didn't have any smoke smell problems but I did notice some smoke smell when I opened up the window. The room had air conditioning (building a/c) but I never used it as the weather wasn't very warm. The staff were helpful and understood English fairly well.
VALUE FOR MONEY”
Located within walking distance to JR Ikebukuro Station (15 minutes walk). Nothing special about the room. The room was a little bit old. Wifi connection is a little bit weak. But it is value for money as it is one of the cheapest hotel around.
Good location with close proximity to Ikebukuro station and lot of restaurants and convenient stores”
Good location with close proximity to Ikebukuro station, shopping centres n airport limousine bus stop. It is an old style hotel, don't expect much on facility and service as the cost is so cheap. The English name of the hotel is very small n you will easily miss it.
There's a Lawson 100-yen convenient store next to the hotel. Eating at night is always easy and there're also many eateries near the West Gate of Ikebukuro station. The staff member was also nice. However, the room was a bit too old.
Recommended to limited budget travelers: excellence service, room size & price, good location, average clearance”
excellence service - polite & helpful staff, 24hr frontdesk service, 12:00 check-out time excellence room size - single room reference only - big bed. I can open a 28" luggage & a hand carry luggage at the same time. Toilet is the only area that makes me feel a little bit small good location - 7~10 mins from JR ikebukuro West exit, many restaurant nearby and 7-11 & Family Mart & Family Mart 100yen Store are just next to hotel average clearance - I forgot if I booked a non-smoking room or smoking room, but the cigarette smell is very strong. The wallpaper looks quite dirty & old, especially when the light is too dark & yellow. But the bed & toilet look new & clean, and the staff had kept the floor & shower area clean & comfortable. Therefore, overall the clearance of room is average.
Nice Location, Friendly Staff, Standard environment”
It takes around 5-8 mins walk to the nearest exit of the JR station, which is very favorable. And it is very near to the crowded area of Ikebukuro, which means there are a lots of restaurant that is nice for handing out and also open till midnight. The staffs are nice and really helpful, they've been really nice to us that they even helped to heat the food with microwave which I got from Familymart nearby (yes, there is two convenient store nearby the hotel and another one on the other side of the road) which he didn't have to so. The position is easy to find also. Overall I will be staying in this hotel in the future. Strongly recommended.

VALUE FOR MONEY”
A bit far off from the nearest JR Station, but still within walking distance. One of the cheapest hotel around and if you're single/couple traveler, I think the hotel offer you enough for your needs. The wifi connection is a bit weak, but still reliable.
Very cozy, clean and good service”
Very cozy room have all needed, housekeeper will clean the room everyday giving new towels, pajamas. Front hotel service very well, accept for deposit luggages after checked out. Even we chose not include breakfast they provide free coffee in the morning at the hotel front.
Value for Money”
This hotel is similar to budget hotel; so by that you will get what you pay for. The main reason that I select this hotel is the price offered is great. The hotel is located in Ikebukuro which has one of the main train station in Tokyo, where it is easier for you to go anywhere by train (Shinkansen, JR, Narita Express, etc.). The hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walk from the train station (West Exit). The hotel room is a bit small but good enough for us but I think if you are a little large in size, you might find it a bit uncomfortable. The wifi in the room is a bit slow and during peak hours, almost impossible to connect. To sum it up, I really satisfy with the hotel with what I paid for it.
