Very friendly staff. You can walk to reach Akihabara (10 minutes), Imperial Palace area and Ueno (20 minutes), and Ginza (about 25 minutes). Very close to Awajicho Metro Station (exit A5), Ogawamachi and Shin-Ochanomizu (lines Maronouchi, Chiyoda and Shinjuku lines). Pleasant hotel, rooms are small but that's what Tokyo is about. Really enjoyed our stay there and surely come back.

Have used this hotel for many years. Small hotel, with very professional and helpful staff. Rooms are always clean and in good condition. The buffet style breakfast is basic but very good. Never had an issue with The B. It's very convenient to the tube, so you can be in Tokyo Station in a few minutes.

The staffs were very friendly and helpful, and can speak decent English. My room was very clean. The wifi however was super slow, definitely even slower than airport wifi. Its so slow you can't even watch youtube or load emails quickly. Not what I expected when I visit Japan.

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.
