This is a good location hotel. Small but clean and good service. The staff can speak good English which are very helpful in providing directions how to go about places in Tokyo that saved us time explored by ourselves. The hotel is near metro station, short distance to JR station. Few eateries around & cafe for coffee break. Will recommend...

Great location, very friendly and english speaking staff. Breakfast was good but not many options (no fruits for example). Rather small room but good enough for few days if someone are going to spend time mostly in the city.

The hotel is about 45min walk from Tokyo main station and very very close to the undergound station. Breakfast wasn't great at all, but the small room very clean and the bed comfortable. A good choice for a one night stay, since it was quite cheap.

I stayed in a Twin room , the room was surprisingly big and the bathroom is a proper (non-Japanese plastic) bathroom. The breakfast is good enough to set off the day. Only down side is that there is no lift access to the underground platform towards the airport direction.

This is a nice business hotel in Tokyo. Rooms are small (as it's the case with hotels like this one), there's a complimentary breakfast, rooms have wifi, and the hotel is accessible through the Marunouchi, Chiyoda, and Shinjuku subway lines. Most importantly, rooms are very affordable, so the hotel is a great value if you don't want to pamper yourself.
