Great hotelPosted Apr 23, 2014
I go to Japan (Tokyo in particular) at least once every year. I'm not a big fan of staying in the busy areas of the city due to noise etc. Hotel Bellclassic happens to be in one of my most favorite areas to stay. It's quiet but not too out-of-the-way. It's a 1-2 minute walk from the JR Otsuka train station and about 5-10 minutes from Shin-Otsuka station, which gives you a couple of commute options. It's about an average of 30 minutes' train ride to most of the major tourist areas (if that's your thing). There is a convenience store right across the street, which is convenient (no pun intended). The JR station is also a kind of mini-mall. The hotel itself is bright and clean and pleasant. I stayed in a single room with a double bed, mini fridge, writing table, side table, desk chair and little sofa chair. It's a little small, like most hotel rooms in Japan, but enough room for a couple of small suitcases. I like that the bottled water in the fridge is free (replaced every day) and the amenities that are are full-sized so you actually have enough soap/shampoo to shower with. No wifi, but they provide an ethernet cable, which I used with my Airport Express with no problems. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I speak Japanese, so I can't tell you how well they communicate in English. All in all, a good experience. I have no complaints. One thing that may be of concern for some is that you can hear people in the hallway quite clearly. But it was mainly a very quiet hotel.

great staff, understand englishPosted Apr 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is within 5 minutes walk from the JR station Otuska, It is a non-interchange station unlike those in Shinjuku or Ikebukoro which made this station easy to navigate. Surrounding the station are many small eatries, and fast food chains and also a supermarket. The staff understand and can speak English. The single room is not too small compared to many of those in japan. Though very near the rail line, not much noise in the room. Comfortable bed. Clean room. I will stay again in this hotel especially if there is a good deal. There is also a TRAM station near the Otuska station.

Good hotel and service. Avoid the restaurant for breakfast unless you love Japanese cuisine.

close to JR linePosted Jun 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very good hotel for the price, nicely decorated and friendly staffs. Very convenient if travel by train (JR loop line).No wireless service in public area and the room is a bit small (but acceptable in Tokyo)

I would stay here againPosted Jun 14, 2013
Pros: The hotel itself is very nice, modern, & clean. It was actually fancier than expected - the hotel has a chapel and banquet facilities for weddings
Cons: I booked this hotel for the free wifi. Someone brought a wireless device to my room and hooked it up for me. Unfortunately, I could never connect
Location: Outside the station there are lots of places to eat & alley streets lined with small shops and stores. Directly across the hotel is a Lawson
This hotel is a new favorite! Bellclassic is just outside Otsuka station (walk about 2 min). From Narita, took the Keisei Skyliner to Nippori (36 min) then transfered to Yamanote line to Otsuka (10 min). So fast! I like that Otsuka station itself is small and easy to navigate. Just one train line runs through it. It would be great for a person new to Tokyo. Because it's not too busy or congested, you never have to fight crowds. It is also on the Yamanote line which circles the city & stops at the major parts of town. The next station is Ikebukuro & it only takes 11 minutes to Shinjuku. Since I often travel with a senior, I look for escalators and elevators. I don't recall either at this station. This is also an issue for me as I travel with a suitcase. Fortunately, the flight of stairs down to street level was short. Went out the south exit, turned right and walked 1-2 min to the hotel. The hotel itself is nice and seems new. There's even sightseeing info on the TV's home screen. Next time, I'd like to try riding the Toden Arakawa streetcar. It looks cute and nostalgic.

Nice, with a catch.Posted Apr 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Bellclassic was a very nice hotel, with wonderful staff, in a nice neighborhood, conveniently located. My only issue lies in that our room back onto an extremely noisy subway platform which drove us a little insane after a while.

Short stay in TokyoPosted Apr 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have stayed in a few Tokyo hotels in the past, but this was my first time at The Bell Classic. lt is situated just a few minutes walk away from Otsuka station (JR Yamonote line). Customer service was excellent- very helpful. Unfortunately, there was no airport transfer service directly from the hotel. The room was small and the bathroom a little dated but overall clean and very satisfactory.
