Rooms are small (maybe 90 sq ft) but that's expected in greater Tokyo. Good value for what you get. Well managed hotel and I was actually surprised how well run hotel is. Only minor negatives are rooms lack safety box and hard to figure out how to call front desk from phone in the room. Didn't notice any english instructions on how to use phone. Hotel can even be more efficient if they allow guests in some way to indicate whether new towels, supplies are needed. Didn't need my room cleaned or made up but housekeeper still left a bag of towels, supplies outside the door every day. Room provided a lot of stuff (like pyjamas) you don't normally see at hotels, esp budget hotels. Great location as mita line station is like 100 m from the hotel and the JR line station is only like 200 m from the hotel. Very impressed with this APA hotel, which is first one I stayed at. I assume it's standard policy to charge extra for early check in, like 1,000 Y for checking in 1.5 hrs before normal 3 pm check in time even though I would be check out at 6:45 am rather than the usual ~11 am check out time. Well organized area in front of reception area to store your luggage. Clean room. Bathroom is small. Maybe 25% larger than bathroom on cruise ship. I visited onsen on 14 th floor but never tried out. Stayed here 4 nights in Dec.

Thank you for staying with us here APA HOTEL 〈Sugamo Ekimae〉and your kind review. We are honored to read your warm comment regarding our facility and service. In our room, there is not a safety box, but we can keep your article of value in the front desk. Our hotel's information is on the TV about facility, how to use the phone, how to order massage, delivery pizza, etc. Please check on the TV. We suggest to use Onsen on 14th floor because Onsen is so nice to refresh yourself. We certainly hope you will choose to stay with us again on your next visit to Japan. Receptionist Noguchi

Location is good since the subway is just a few steps from the hotel entrance. Like all Tokyo hotels, price is pretty steep but what you are paying for is the convenience. This was literally one of the smallest hotels I have stayed in (comparable to room size and price of Singapore hotels). Once you open the door to your room, there is a bathroom to your right and the bed which pretty much occupies the entire room. The walking space inside the room is negligible so avoid bringing large luggage as this will be difficult to open and will just eat up room space. The room has a large flat screen TV (this is Japan so I would expect nothing less than modern conveniences :) which is probably the best part, but I dont think I noticed any English channels. The worst part about the room was the smell of the bathroom. It smelled like urine even if we had just arrived and havent even used it. Even after the help cleaned the room, the smell of urine stayed. I am not sure if it has something to do with the material of the toilet. They have a deodorizing spray but it does nothing to help. There are toiletries available in the bathroom (shampoo, conditioner, liquid body soap) and they also have other items like shavers, hair ties, hair caps, toothbrushes. Another good thing was the hot tub at the top of the hotel. I used the women's hot tub and (of course) you have to cleanse yourself prior and need to be completely naked. It wasnt awkward for me even if it was my first time. The water was very relaxing.

Thank you very much for staying at APA Hotel <Sugamo Ekimae>. I am very honored to receive many valuable opinions. During the stay, it seems to have been able to relax and is above all. The room is made compact so that you can easily reach the things around you. I am sorry for the unpleasant feeling about the smell of the bathroom. We will share information with the cleaning staff and make improvements. Thank you very much for your feedback. If you come to Sugamo, please use this hotel. APA Hotel <Sugamo Station> Front Sanada

Basically it is a decent location, next to the subway station, very near Sugamo Jizodori Shopping Street. The main reason and what I do like about the hotel is the onsen. It is not very easy to get an onsen hotel in Tokyo. Unfortunately, the room given to me, when I turned on the aircon had the smell of cigarettes. Though it was a non-smoking room and floor. Fortunately, the staff arranged for me to change rooms within the same floor. But because of the "unfortunate event" the staff asked me to check the aircon vent. That is when I saw how filthy it was. Granted that I do not normally check the aircon vents in the hotels, I stay in. This was was really bad, I asked the hotel to clean it the next day when I was out; I am sure they did. But hope they will not wait till we complain to clean the aircon filters and vents. I tried to take a photo, but it was too dark; so even after they did clean it, it obviously needs much more cleaning.

I have stayed in APA every time when I visit Japan. This APA hotel is just 2 minutes away from JR Sugamo Station and just a few stations from the Skyliner Nippori station to Narita station and a few stops from Ikebukuro station, where basically you can get everything there. There is a seven eleven, Matsuya beef bowl shop and Family Marts and lots of restaurants in the area. The room is a typical Japanese standard of cleanliness and tidiness. The onsen on 14th floor is a bonus to relax at night. Staff are nice. You get everything needed like bathrobe, sleepers, toothbrush, shaver, etc. Toilet seat is high tech. The only downside is the insufficient amount of laundry machine.

I have stayed at other APA hotels in Tokyo, but this one is the BEST! I will probably stay here again on my next trip. Sugamo is a quiet neighborhood, with plenty of restaurants. The hotel is a 2-minute walk from JR station on the Yamanote line, which can get you anywhere you need to be. The hotel is beautiful, and the elevators are fast. The rooms are typically small, but the two of us had plenty of room in a twin room. The best thing about this hotel is the onsen on the 14th floor. Don't be shy, give it a try! There is only one English-speaking TV station, but that's ok because I use the local shows to improve my Japanese skills! We did not get to try the restaurant on this trip, but I'm sure the food is great!
