LOCATION This hotel is tucked in an alleyway behind the main road. It feels extremely safe and quiet. Once you pop out at exit A5 at Awajicho, turn left down the street, turn right into the first alley, head to the end and turn left. It's less than a minute walk but it can be challenging if you have luggage,...

Only a couple of stops away from Tokyo station, in a peaceful area but a 2 minute walk (or less) to the Awajicho station. There is a Starbucks, Subway, 7-Eleven, 2 Family Marts and some local restaurants in the span of a 2 minute walk. So the location is good. The hotel itself is a no-frills hotel, at a reasonable...

Officially this is just a reasonably priced business hotel but it does it so well. Location: near a JR and three subway stations in a business district that is very quiet later in the evening. It is also marked on all the local maps at the subway stations or on the street making it easy to find. Near a lot...

Stayed here for close to two weeks in November 2012. Great location, with good airport access (one "change" from Tokyo Station). Close to the Tokyo Subway lines, about a 2 minute walk on the street. Clean, small and functional rooms. I would skip the breakfast though, repetitive "packaged" stuff every day. Very friendly and pleasant staff spoke English. Same day...

I stayed in the b'ochanomizu for 4 nights during July for work. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful - for example they allowed me to check-in early.

The staff were super friendly during my stay, but everything else was a bit of a letdown. The room looked worn and dated (beige and grey everywhere), and even bed spread felt thin. The bed itself is one of the more firm ones I have encountered. The bathroom is like many compact hotel bathrooms. Nothing glitzy, but does the job....

Neighbourhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
