Hotel is attached to Sunshine City Mall. Rooms small basic but efficient and clean. Seems to host a lot of tour groups. When busy extremely long waits for elevators. Stayed here as part of a group tour. Breakfast is good with variety but offerings never change.

It has a nice location , clean rooms, cute bathrooms. It has a lot of guest quite delaying in using the elevator. Even in breakfast buffet we had to line up because of the volume of guest. We love the family mart just downstairs very convenient.

An OK place to stay. We came here with a tour group. The staff were really helpful. Double room was just big enough and the nice surprise was that the beds were about 4 feet wide. Dinner and breakfast buffets had good choices.

This large hotel (more than a thousand rooms) is attached to a large chopping centre, and so convenient for finding restaurants and shopping (if you need that). While the Ikebukuro Station is not that far away, it is also not necessarily that convenient. There is a lengthy outside walk to get there and if it's raining (as it was for...

Lots of shopping opportunities on-site. One can walk underground to Higashi-Ikebukuro subway station. There didn’t seem to be an underground walkway for the short walk to the JR Ikebukuro station. This hotel has a nice breakfast buffet but it can get crowded with some wait times depending on how many tours are staying there. WI-FI in the room worked great.
