I stayed at Forest Hongo in May 2014, for a conference I was attending at the University of Tokyo. So convenient--the hotel is literally just 100 m from the university gate, and only a few minutes' walk to the conference facility. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. I found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable, although...

Room size: large for Japanese standards. Location: very convenient if you are going to visit the Tokyo University (walking distance). Personnel: excellent English -- no communication issues. The breakfast is so-so...You have western and traditional Japanese options... Japanese breakfast could be a bit better. One minor problem: not easy to find if you arrive by subway. By taxi: no problems...

Spacious hotel rooms (for Japan) one block back on a side street from the main entrance to the University of Tokyo, Hongo campus. Everything in excellent and sparkling condition, king size (western) bed, free WiFi, and even had a small refrigerator in room. The hotel provided separate printed instructions in English to operate AC, TV, etc. You need a map...

This is a modestly priced hotel located very near to the University of Tokyo and about a 15 min walk to three different Metro stations. The room rate usually includes breakfast, which was OK (both Western and Japanese) but it was always the same (even the same background music). The room itself was large (by Japanese standards) but the bed...

This hotel has a number of advantages. It is not very expensive, and quiet. Its is virtually next door to the main gates of the University of Tokyo. There are a number of small and fantastic little restaurants just at its doorstep. I tried Emma (on the street down to the university) and it was wonderful - arrive early as...

I stayed at Forest Hongo with my wife and in-laws in early September of 2013. Pros - Short walk to Tokyo University - Spacious rooms and bathrooms (by US standards) - Good quality rooms (though a bit dated stylistically) - Very helpful staff - Paid ~ $135 per night - Very quiet Cons - 15 min walk to subway line...

This is a well managed hotel, clean and efficient, and if you don't expect a huge room and/or bathroom (seeing it as it's Japan and space is always limited), you'll probably be happy with your choice. Two things that detract from the overall good experience: the WiFi is only available if you ask for a router at the front desk....

I stayed at the Forest Hongo Hotel when I attended a conference at the Tokyo Universityseveral days back. I was very happy with the quietness and calmness of the neighbourhood. The room was very clean and the amenities were just awesome. There are many restaurants nearby.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.
