Smile Hotel Sugamo is located 2 min walk away from Sugamo Station. My reason for choosing this bugdet hotel was that I wanted to visit nearby Sakura Spa, which is my favorite onsen in Tokyo. The onsen is 5 min walk from the hotel. The onsen also offers a free shuttle bus from/to Sugamo Station. Is is a pink mini-bus....

Cleanest hotel I've ever seen! It is incredible, most of the cleaning staff are old sweet ladies. You receive every day clean towels, razor, toothbrush, toothpaste, tea, water. My room had a "small" fridge included (it was way bigger that the usual hotel fridges). The room was compact, but this is the style of most asian hotels.It had a bathtub...

Sugamo is quite small but has a lot packed in with many places to eat right outside the hotel, including fast food and family diner style restaurants. It is at the top of the JR Yamanote circle line with trains to Ikebukuro and Shinjuku, and Ueno and Tokyo...

If you are not fussy about accommodation, then you'll be happy with Smile Hotel Sugamo. Have all basic necessities, clean, great location - near train station and various local places to eat are around, also good price deal! It is an old hotel and bed is a bit too hard for me, but who cares after a long fun yet...

Pros: - All amenities as listed including a dusty dehumidifier and a humidifier. - A/C and lights controlled from bed headboard. - Windows work (they open unlike at other hotels I've seen). - Complimentary mineral water daily. Cons: - Shower does not have an adjustable design and powerful as hell - Hairdryer is the exact opposite - so weak it's...

The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme.
