Bathroom and bath's a community. The rooms are nonsmoking, but the lobby and wait room is smoking, so in the end it doesn't make much of a difference because 2nd hand smoke seeps into all rooms.

Decent stay, clean enough, adjustable heater in the room. Good wifi. Hard to find however, leave the subway at stop Nishi-nihombashi at exit B4, turn immediately left, bare right after 50 yards, turn left, continue 80 yards and enter the building and on 5th floor.

A Pleasant Surprise

Posted Oct 10, 2016
Pros: The owners clearly are making an effort to create an interesting and welcoming environment.
Cons: When I called and asked for someone speaking English, the owner hung up on me. Rude to American ears :)
Location: It is a quiet shopping area, with easy access to three train lines. It is near Tokyo Station, Asakusa and Akihabara.
We didn't expect much from the other reviews, so we were very surprised when we walked into the lobby and found such an interesting place. There is a large table of puzzles, several aquariums, free tea and coffee, lots of tourist info, and lots of rental items. The owners seem very friendly. The facilities are basic but clean and adequate. Our room was Japanese style. Very very simple, and it had a bit of a smell, but the A/C took care of it.

Tokyo experience at a fair price.

If you find it first time, you're doing well! Apart from that it is a good price. Showers and toilets are communal though. Room was decent enough, although narrow . There was only a 1 ft space between the beds! It's clean though and close to the subway and loads of local shops and places to eat.

Hotel neighborhood, condition, service... correspond well to the price. It seems to be a good place for spending a few nights, but less adapted for long stays. The hotel is located on a crossing of 3 subway lines, which allows to travel in Tokyo very easily. Joining Akihabara (for those who are manga/anime/cosplay/computer game fans) and Ginza (for kabuki and shopping) was particularly quick.

Awesome location, more of a hostel or motel.

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Price, location, friendly staff.
Cons: Rooms stink of cigarette smoke, this should be fixed.
Location: Akihabara is under 15 min walk away and a train station is very close by (10 min to tokyo station). Lots of restaurant choices around.
It was clean and the staff was nice, with a great location (~15 min walk from Akihabara). A train station was just around the corner, it was surrounded by convenience stores. Sadly, it only offers shared bathrooms and it is a smoking hotel. The room that I got stank of cigarette smoke and We needed to seriously air it out and buy an air freshner. The shared bathrooms do not have stall showers, and you will see everyone naked. There is the option of borrowing the family washroom at night for those that do not want to do that, but it is a bit of a hassle. Also, the pillows are bean bag pillows. If you don't mind the smell and sharing bathrooms, it has a great location and it's very cheap.

Convenient location, Extremely dirty place

Posted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Everything
2 subway stations and 1 Japan Rail station within a few blocks from the hotel. Front desk staffs were kind and nice. Many corners of the room is covered with heavy dust and there were some garbage left under the bed from the previous clients. Neither the room was not cleaned nor sheets were not changed everyday. Unless I remind the cleaning persons, they do the short cuts on regular bases, so that things were left quite filthy and I had to clean them up myself at times. Bath tab had some broken peaces of brownish oozy things floating at times. Room walls were very thin and able to hear every single noise and activities from other rooms and the hallways, such as kids screaming, some neighbors snoring, talking, giggling, watching TV, etc. Sometimes heavy smoke infested all over the hallways and some of those smoke even came into the room when someone was smoking in the lobby, due to the very poor ventilation of the place. This is the good place to stay if you are on budget, a smoker, mostly outside and spending minimum time at the hotel, having no allergy, nose is plugged, can't hear well.

Nice, cheap, clean accomodation

Posted Oct 26, 2014
This hotel has everything for a basic, budget accommodation. Ideal for backpackers. It is very close to about 5 or 6 major train lines, so you can go practically everywhere very fast. It takes only about 30 min to get from the front door of the hotel to central Tokyo.
