Toyoko Inn Tokyo Korakuen Bunkyokuyakusho Mae

Reviewed 8 July 2017

Second time to stay here in last 3 years. Its my goto hotel in Tokyo.
Check in was quick enough, staff don't all speak English, so they have an English speaker available on the phone, and this was how anything out of the ordinary was done. Normal stuff - signing in, passports, luggage is done easily with pidgin English and hand signals and a SMILE.
Beside the Reception desk is a seating area which magically transforms into the breakfast room. So while you eat, Reception business is conducted right beside you.

THe room itself is small, but absolutely spotless. Walk in the door, bathroom immediately on the right. Small bathroom, shower is over the bath. The bath is filled from a mixer tap on the washbasin, which sounds weird, but the pressure is so great I'm sure the bath could be filled very quickly.
Beyond the bathroom is the room proper. It contains a wall mounted desk (or very big shelf would better describe it) with a TV and mirror. There's a chair tucked under it for using the mirror when drying hair with the hairdryer attached to the wall. Under the desk is a small fridge and a safe. Tea making facilities are provided, but the tea is some sort of strange brew. But I liked it.

The double bed is very comfortable. on the far side of the bed is a small table and 2 chairs.

There's no wardrobe. On the wall is a rail for hangers. So, we rotated our clothes from the suitcases to the wall hangers. The suitcases easily fit under the bed, so that was our storage area. When necessary there's a coin op laundry behind Reception. An iron is available from Reception.

The breakfast is Rice, Miso soup, Rice cakes (onigiri) Japanese pickled veggies, bread with chocolate through it, and buns with butter in them. Coffee and green tea. Excellent and kept me going till lunch. And the two lovely ladies who run the kitchen always have a big smile and a welcoming "Ohayo gozaimas".

I LOVE this hotel and will always stay there if I go to Tokyo again.

stayed here for three nights while at a seminar at the JKA. Rooms are comfy and big enough not to feel cramped. Price is affordable too. This hotel is close to the Kodokan Judo building as well as he Tokyo Dome so it is very conveniently located.

I spent two nights here, and what can one say, really. It's a Toyoko Inn, which means a clean and cheap (but small) room, and a little bit of very basic breakfast thrown in. The internet was also free and fast enough. For 7,000 yen or so I cannot complain.

Good stuff: Wonderful location - I got there in the middle of a snowstorm, so glad to find out it was right opposite an underground station access passage exit. Lots of nearby food; two 24 hour convenience stores and a cheap Saizeriya (Italian-ish) chain less than a minute away, along with a number of other restaurants.

Bad stuff: My room was non-smoking, but not the floor. The two rooms nearest the lift, it seemed, were smoking, making the corridor a bit smelly. No heating in the bathroom, so showers were a little cold.

Throughly enjoyed my stay here.
The location was excellent. Very close to Toyko Dome and across the road from a metro station.
Hotel was very clean and encountered no problems during our stay.
Highly recommended.

C+ because it's so cramped (at least for the average sized Westerner), but A+ in other areas -- very well designed, immaculate, across the street from one subway station (Namboku and Mita lines) and a block from the major Korakuen station. They even provide you with a nightshirt. Japanese breakfast included, too. There's a hot water machine in the room, but bring your own tea bag. Hair dryers, shampoo, also provided. Because it's so economical and convenient it's always booked pretty far in advance, so give yourself lots of lag time. No restaurant, but there's a takeout place a couple steps away, an inexpensive Italian place a couple steps in the other direction, and an izakaya across the street.
