    The hotel is quite old and the AC was not working well. We did eventually get the AC to work but the heat was overwhelming. We only stayed one night, and for the price, we could not complain too much.

    Great location in a relatively quiet section in one of the busiest parts of Tokyo. Very close to public transit facilities. The room was not fancy but was clean and comfortable.

    GREAT location, practically right next to the Shin-Okubo line and a 7 Eleven. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is located a 2 minute walk from a laundermat. Very satisfied with my stay and will definitely be coming back.

  • 6.0.Good

    Pros: very close to 24 hr convenient store, restaurants and train station-all within 1-2 blocks. Bedroom was actually one of the biggest rooms I’ve had in all my visits to Tokyo (we were a family of three). Staff were friendly. Cons: hotel pretty old/run down- hote entance door doesn’t work and had to slide to open/close it, room walls had tape, shower curtain held by paper clips, bathroom/shower is smallest I’ve had (hard to maneuver without hitting something, even toilet you had to sit on tilt or sink would be in the way). Lastly, the staff- willing to help with most issues but night before leaving asked for a cab to be called to take us and luggage to Shinjuku train station. The employee took the time requested but when the time came the employee was sleeping in an office room and took us a few attempts to get him to the counter until he heard us banging on the counter and ran out. He called the cab company and stated it would be another 15 mins before arriving. He seemed pretty unsure when speak with the cab company mumbling and checking sheets of paper. We couldn’t trust relying on it due to time. We had to walk to the train with our luggage which isn’t convenient due to lack of elevator at that station.
