Staff save the day

Posted Dec 7, 2017
Pros: Convenient location, Great Staff, Shower, Price
Cons: Bedding, Wifi, individual room temperature control.
Location: Tons of restaurants (especially ramen) and entertainment nearby. Easy access to train station, 15-30 mins from anywhere in Tokyo by train.
Good convenient location, affordable, and very helpful staff. The bed was very hard, but they added some padding for me when I mentioned it. You can't control the room temperature, but they gave me a fan when I said it was a bit warm. No bathtub in my room, but the shower was amazing.

Great Hotel Close to Ikebukuro Station

Posted Nov 28, 2017
Pros: The location is the best part about this hotel. This is probably my 6+ stay in the past few years so I know this hotel well.
Location: Great shopping just steps away from this hotel. Great eats within seconds of leaving the hotel. You really can't go wrong this this location.
I love this hotel. It is a no frills hotel but it does the job. It is minutes away from Ikebukuro Station with good eating places just around the block and amazing shopping just steps away, the location can't be beat.

Close to JR station

Posted Nov 3, 2017
Close to JR station (few mins walk) and various restaurants and shopping. Clean and very friendly staff. Staff can speak fluent English. Narita express goes direct to Ikebukuro station which makes it very convenient. Convenient store is just across the street.

Great Hotel Great Location

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Location and food are at the top of my list for this hotel. Customer service is also excellent!
Cons: Nothing
Location: This hotel is maybe a 5 min walk to Ikebukuro Station and maybe another 5-10min walk to Sunshine City and all the great shops in the area.
I stay at this hotel almost every time I go to Japan. The price is great and I love the location. It is so easy to get around Tokyo from here. I really can't say enough good things!

Right in the middle of Ikebukuro

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Pros: Clean,tidy with helpful staff.
Cons: Actually follow through on being a "Green" hotel. Asking the guests to hang up the towels and bath mat to save on washing them,is crazy!
Location: About 4 minutes walk from Ikebukoro station-East entrance.Only minutes from the shopping hub.Including Sunshine City.With it's Aquarium.
A basic hotel,small on extras,but very welcoming.A very clean hotel too.Friendly staff,also very helpful staff. The hotel is trying hard to be green,but every day that I left my towels hanging up [ which the hotel asks you to do to save on washing,drying them etc.] the maids took them all away anyway-every day! About 3-4 minutes walk from Ikebukuro Station-East exit. Very convienient for Sunshine City,only a few minutes walk away. All in all a good place to stay

The location is perfect, and the room was very clean and comfortable. However, the wifi service wasn't very strong or reliable.
