We don't spend a lot of time in any hotel room we stay in so I'm not particularly picky. What's crucial is a hotel's location, and this one's just right. Just a couple of minutes' walk to a JR station and cheap but good restaurants, Empire Hotel is everything you need for an adventure in Tokyo. It's clean and has...

Beautiful hotel in a great setting. Only stopped in for afternoon tea and would highly recommend staying there. Excellent level of service and very handy location for getting around the city. Close to open spaces.

I've read so much comments before I get here. They're mostly said that this hotel is quite dirty, and too small toilet. But here I come with clean room, and they made up room as I requested. Everything goes well, but just the tiny toilet. Anyway, I think this hotel is acceptable. Good price, good service.

Whilst I agree with other reviewers that this hotel is a little run down I felt that it was extremely good value for the price that we payed. The hotel's location is great, it's a 2 minute walk from a JR station and about 15 minutes from Shinjuku station which is really handy if you want to visit not only...

Pros: Very convenient location; very affordable rates; adequate customer service; the room was acceptably clean; mini fridge in room; air conditioner worked. Free Wifi. Cons: The hotel is run down. The room was small and cramped (triple room 3 adults). Noise from other rooms is bothersome. Wifi may not be secure as each floor's router is physically accessible to anyone...

My wife n I was here just for 1 night, before we head to Tendo next morning. This hotel near to Shin-Okubo station, walking distance. Facilities here quite okay. Enough to charge your devices, freshen up your body for your next journey. Shin-Okuno station is where you can get Muslim Halal food nearby.

We stayed on the fifth floor in the corner room and had a cool corner balcony. The room was very basic, only had 2 power outlets, so we had to unplug the tv to charge our electronic devices. Room was very small, it had AC, small fridge, TV and a desk. Not much desk space. Found it pretty weird that...
