You look for a budget hotel and you should expect what you pay for. In all, great value! The rooms are small and I mean small. There is no wardrobe and you have the feeling of entering a prison cell with the heavy metal room doors, however, it's clean, has everything you need and is comfortable. Internet connection was awesome. Never dropped out. This is not the place you stay if you want comfort but perfect if all you need is a place to sleep. This is ideal if you are visiting the nearby JKA Karate HQ. In fact I think it's the closest hotel to it. There is a bakery downstairs and lots of nearby supermarkets for food and drink. Probably the only hotel in Tokyo where the staff do not appear to speak English. Enjoyed my visit though and would stay again.
This hotel is cheap so don't expect much. Opposite to the hotel you can find a Family Mart and a Lawson. The hotel is within 1 kilometer from nearby subway station. It's very close to Bunkyo Civic Center.
Stayed here for 6 nights in April with my boyfriend. The hotel is really close to Tokyo Dome, which is a pretty nice area with a bunch of restaurants and shops, and even a little supermarket. There is a Family Mart combini (convenience store) just across the street of the hotel, which was absolutely wonderful, so you don't need to look long for a quick breakfast. The hotel is close to Korakuen station, around a 8-10 minute walk. The hotel, overall, was nice. The room and bed was a bit too small for my liking, but it had space enough for all our stuff. The only thing I wasn't happy with, was that the window in our room couldn't close properly. The road outside is not super noisy, but it did become a bit of a bother by the end. The toilet is super hi-tech, and there was a tub as well. The hotel staff knows limited English. Check-in and check-out was fast.…
Since the only other Englsih-language mention of this hotel on the Internet is on the Japan Karate Association website, any reader of this review is likely to be a JKA member planning a visit to JKA Headquarters, so here's some information that you may find helpful: * This is the hotel's (Japanese) website: http://web.travel.rakuten.co.jp/portal/my/mapOperation.top?f_hotel_no=5322&f_teikei= * Not only is the website in Japanese, but the desk staff speak no English. * This is definitely the closest hotel to JKA HQ (maybe 5 minutes walk) but there are others not much further away. The much more luxurious Tokyo Dome Hotel, for example, is about a 15 minute walk, and - unlike the J-Links - is convenient to the rail and metro lines. * Even for Japanese business hotels, the rooms here are small. Note, for example, that there are no drawers, so you will be living out of your suitcase. * The metal doors make it seem very institutional. * In late 2008, the room rate was less than 8000 yen per night, so pretty inexpensive. * Make sure you print off the map of the hotel location, since even the taxi drivers at nearby Suidobashi Station are unfamiliar with this hotel. You might also want to use Google Map's "street view" feature to look at the hotel and its surroundings so that you will recognize it even if the taxi driver doesn't. * There's a laundromat in the next block south, an important consideration if you're trying to decide how many bulky karate uniforms to pack. * You enter the hotel through what initially appears to be the door to the neighbouring bakery. * Amazing water pressure in the shower! Be careful. * The staff will expect you to stay out of your room until after 3:00 p.m. when the cleaning finishes. * You will be expected to hand in your key at the desk when you go out.…
