Perfect if on a budget, room smell of smoke even in non-smoking room.”
Extremely dated rooms, but acceptable on a budget. Requested non-smoking room but due to no non-smoking room available, a smoking room was provided. A non-smoking room was changed the next day, however it still had strong smoking smell. Smoking smell in room, even they attempt to open corridor windows and fire escape doors, cannot clear it. Pillows and duvet was paper thin, which is their standard. Basic breakfast was provided including toast, salad, yogurt, tea and coffee machine available, making it hassle free. The hotel staff are attentive and able to provide sufficient support where needed.
Good location with lot of restaurants and shopping areas around. 5 mins walk to JR station. Room is relatively big comparing to similar type of hotel. Carpet was just cleaned and not thoroughly dried.
Very helpful staff at Reception”
This hotel locates at Kitagochi exit of JR Ikebukuro Station where most of the pubs and whorehouses are in vicinity. As a female travelling in Tokyo alone, I feel quite uncomfortable walking around the area after 10pm. Its only around 7 minutes walk from JR Ikebukuro Station (Minami-exit / Kita-exit). Nice and tidy room. Helpful staff at reception though most of them could not speak English (Out of the 8 staff members that I came across during my stay in this hotel, only 1 could speak English). During my stay in Tokyo, i got a flu and had not been feeling well. I had been vomitting and diarrhea for 2 days. I went to the reception and ask if there would be any clinics nearby which opened on Staurday. The receptionist (he was the only one who could speak English) had tried to search through the net and found one for me. He then drew a map and showed me the way to that clinic in great details. I also asked if they could help me to wash my clothes since they got my vomit on it. He explained that the hotel could not help to wash clothes with vomit on. But then he again showed me the way to a coin laundry nearby and drew me a map for the way to that coin laundry again. The next day he saw me going out, he asked if I was feeling better already and wish me good day. It has been very touching and I am really thankful for his help. I wrote a thank you card to him and passed to his colleague on the day I checked out. I would also like to take the opportunity in writing this review to express my deepest gratitude to him for all his help and detailed explanations for my speedy recovery so I could enjoy my stay in Tokyo for the remaining days of my journey.
Night shift staff is very helpful and friendly.”
Helpful night shift staff point me to the dining area cause i was late check in and without taking any meal, central located, near to JR train, metro n subway station, easy to acess shopping mall and electrical parts. Alot of local restaurant and shopping mall.
Convenient to Transportation”
i am really satisfied staying in this hotel for several nights. the hotel is located right inside the pub area and several types of convenient stores are located nearby. i would really recommend for those who are looking for affordable accommodation which comes with the strategic location and as well as right inside the town. i would definitely choose this hotel for my next tokyo visit for sure.
Difficult to find the correct location”
It is difficult to find the location of hotel. can hear the sound of people walking around in the corridor and sound of hair dryer in next room. less choice of breakfast, only bread, salad, yogaurt.
Near to night club.. room a bit old.. other then that still ok
Great location, kind staff. ”
The main reason I chose this hotel, was because it was 2 minutes away on foot from the place of my main business this time. Turned out that it was close to everything else as well; a big train station, restaurants and attractions, shopping, etc. The room was small, but had all the proper amenities. I was quite impressed with yhe staff members. Not all of them spoke or undertood English very well (and my Japanese is really just basic), but somehow they have managed to help me with what I need every single time, and were always nice, polite and attentive. My next stay in Tokyo will be at this hotel again, even if the business is not in Ikebukuro.
If you exit via C6, it takes only 2 minutes walk to reach the hotel. There's also Family Mart & 7-11 around the corner. Breakfast at hotel was simple fare of toast, salad, yogurt and drinks. Downside of hotel, was there was no cabinet so luggage will be out in the "open". Also the nearest laundry service is 3 mins walk away. To make up for it, staff are very friendly and helpful though.
Excellent location and friendly staff”
The location is excellent! Big plus that breakfast was served until 9:30 for us who are bad at getting up in the morning. The staff was really friendly! The rooms were very nice considering the price! However, the ashtray located on floor 6 next to the elevator wasn't really pleasant but it didn't bother me too much! Overall, great hotel if you are going on a business trip or just need a place to stay in Tokyo!
Good Hotel for a few night stay, good value.”
This hotel was good for the price, clean and decent size room for Tokyo budget hotel. It was good that it offers free breakfast which was not mentioned in the booking. Breakfast was simple toast, yogurt, salad, and coffee. The hotel was a little far from the JR Ikebukuro west exit, about 7 mins walk, but from the metro Ikebukuro station C6 exit, it is only about four blocks away. We suggest to use goggle map when you are searching for the hotel for the first time cause it is located in the inner streets, it took us a while to find it the first time when we walked from the JR station west exit.
An excellent hotel in Ikebukuro”
Stayed in the 307 and 203 room for several nights while in Tokyo. This hotel's price was unbeatable , in terms of how much we paid and what we got. Efficient, polite and English speaking staffs,centrally located just about 5 minutes to JR Ikebukuro Station. Complete room amenities , they already provide everything to make our stay comfortable. Induction stove , LCD TV with paid TV option , yukata, slippers , hot and cold water , bathtub, nearby vending machine. 711 , eateries ,are scattered near this hotel.Izakayas , karaoke bars , drinking bars are within walking distance. We would stay again !
Value for money hotel in Ikebukuro”
Booked 1 single occupancy room (307) and double occupancy room (203) during our visit to Tokyo. Too bad that they didn't have a family room. My bed in my single room was spacious but for the double room , the bed is quite small. Excellent room condition with complete bathroom amenities , slippers , yukata , all Japanese TV channel with an option of paid TV channel (Y 1000).Vending machine located nearby our rooms, and in the restaurant They provide induction type stove , drinkable tap water , powdered green tea ,bathtub , safe deposit box etc.Everything we need, they already provide us ! Overall , an excellent and value for money hotel , quick check in and out, polite staffs. Their price was unbeatable,and they provide free breakfast , a very nice surprise because we thought that our booking didn't include breakfast. We would stay again !
SUPER VALUE ROOM”
My (solo female traveler) first time in this hotel, expected it to have smaller rooms (because all hotel rooms in Japan are quite small unless you go to a Western chain hotel) but it's quite big! Had a very nice stay and the staff were super helpful (AND patient) even with my broken Japanese! The street has bars so there are some guys around at night but they won't bother you. I actually asked the front desk staff if the place / streets are safe since I read a review somewhere (solo female traveler) who was uncomfortable of the area. Fastest way to get to hotel: head over CENTRAL GATE PASSAGEWAY, exit C6, turn LEFT, passby 711, turn LEFT again when you see Family Mart. It should be to your RIGHT. Even though my reservation stated no breakfast, all hotel guests get free coffee, toast and salad 0730-0900! Ask me if you still have questions~
Uncomfortable. Room design like a cheap love hotel”
First,the room too much look like a love hotel room. Second,the staffs are unfriendly and their english was poor.The size of the room is acceptable, compare than other hotel with a similar price. Bed is too small! Overall, I think Ikebukuro is not a very nice area.
Good economic hotel ”
this hotel is great for those whose not willing to spend much on the nights and utilize your time outside hotel. the room is actually smaller than first expected, but still bareable to certain extent. this location is not exactly suitable for single female travelers because i do found the place a bit more complex in a sense of bars surrounding you, meaning a blend of more complex people walking around during night times. overall, what you spend is what you get, so can't really complaint much given the budget, so i would still recommend this one to those who wishes to spend elsewhere.
Very helpfully reception!”
For my first fews days of my stay, i was struggling with the internet connection, but the stuff there were so helpful. they gave me a portable internet connection device which i never expected. Service was very efficient. I can't ask for more for what Im paying!
The location is very convenient, as it's very near to the station exit. However, you may have to worry the security problem when you walk back to hotel at night time, as there are lots of night clubs around there. The staff are very nice and sincere.
Great location ”
Strategic location which near the main station Ikebukuro. Within 3 mins walking distance of FAMILY MART/7-11. Right & Cozy hotel if you are TRAVEL alone. Free Wifi. Allowed & willing to look after luggage after check-out while I m waiting for my train to my next destination.
Nice hotel but breakfast was disappointing”
This hotel is located near to the c6 metro exit of Ikebukuro. Once you see Familymart on the corner of the street, it's only about a minute's walk down a smaller road. Everything about the hotel was fine except the breakfast. All you get is bread, salad, yoghurt and a choice of tea / coffee. It would have been great to get some Japanese style food instead.
