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.
