Convenient hotel to train stations & bus terminal
Posted Jul 19, 2016
Stayed 6 nights in mid summer when it is hot & humid in Tokyo. Hotel corridors are not air conditioned at all, so coming out of your room is like stepping in to a sauna. The room itself has individually controlled air conditioning, however it resets itself to 28 degrees celcius once you leave the room, so returning to your room after a hot sticky day is not a pleasant experience - it takes a good 10 minutes before the room cools down once you run in and reset the temperature to a more suitable level. Probably wouldn't be an issue if we stayed at other times of the year that are not as hot. We stayed as a triple, which left very little room for our baggage once the third bed was made up, however we are pretty used to small rooms in Japan and Hong Kong, and for the price - you can't really complain about size. Rooms are a bit tired. The bathroom (not airconditioned) unfortunately had a bit of a mouldy smell, but as I said before - for the price I could cope with that, and at least it was clean. We paid for breakfast, which had good choice, and filled us all up for the day. Staff were pleasant and polite - like most Japanese people. Location was fantastic - short walk to both Hamamatsucho and Daimon stations, and also the Hamamatsucho bus terminal (if you want to do a tour). Seven 11 nearby to access ATM, and lots of little eateries around.
Comment from Hotel Management

Thank you so much for staying with us. We are appreciate your compliment.
We are very sorry for inconvenience of air conditioning. We recommend to leave a card (something like a name card) instead of room key at key holder when you leave the room. So air conditioner keep working.
Our hotel is nearby JR and metro station by 5-6 minute by walk. It has easy access to Haneda Airport, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku where you can have fun. Many bus tour with English guide start from Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal in World Trade Center. There are many reasonable restaurants near here. You can also walk to Tsukiji Fish Market and Tokyo Tower. We believe you enjoy staying in Tokyo.
We are going to do renovation this year, so we believe you will be satisfied more next time.
We are looking forward to seeing you again.
