Hotel Kuramae, Tokyo
Quick stay, great value
It was a good time there. I enjoyed the air conditioning and vibe of a nostalgic business hotel. The subway is close by with tons of shops and cafes close by. The shower stall was amazing and spacious for a nice sized room. The wifi was acceptable and quick in non peak times. Guest services were more than adequate. I will book again for future trips and my clients on a budget.

Can't beat this price tbh.
Very easy check in. The area was super convinent as it was a block away from a train station. I didn't explore the area but the bed was comfy and the wifi worked.

Not the worst, perhaps.
You get what you pay for - This hotel looks like it's from an old 1980's detective film. The check-in staff are kind, mattresses are ok, and the bathrooms aren't terrible, but the shower curtain was moldy. The cleaners do their best but the smell of mold lingers in the hall. The rooms are tiny, even for business hotel standards. The bathrooms are minuscule. The area around the hotel is nondescript, but you can easily walk to some tourist attractions. Just to sleep, perhaps for some adventurers, it's okay. But if not incredibly cash strapped, spend a bit more and go somewhere a bit more comfortable.
