“convenient, clean, quiet, and comfy”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

It's literally a minute walk from JR Itabashi station which connects to the Yamanote line a stop away (can also take the airport express to Narita airport from Ikebukuro which is one stop away). Despite being right by the train tracks, it's amazingly quiet! Even the fridge in the room made no noise at all! There are many convenient stores and restaurants within walking distance. Wifi only available in the lobby. Wired internet in the room works well. The room's small but comfortable.

Room Tip: 4th floor has coin laundry

My wife and I stayed here a few days while we visited her family in Itabashi. Actually we surprised them, showing up unannounced, so we needed a place for a couple nights until they were ready for us. Itabashi is a cool town that's close to Tokyo hot spots like Shinjuku and Ikebukuro. The hotel is in front of Itabashi station and from there you can go anywhere in Tokyo. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and dining bars. Inside is an interesting restaurant specializing in all you can eat tofu related dishes as well as other types of food.

Our room was small, but really you only sleep there. Though, with two people there is not much room. It is a western style room with a bed, TV, and western style bathroom. We couldn't hear the train station from inside the hotel.

In the lobby there was a computer terminal (with a fee). My wife handled speaking so I'm not sure on the staff's English profiency.

The hotel overlooks the Itabashi station. Access to the train is simply a matter of walking out the door of the hotel. It's about 10 minutes by train to Shinjuku. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Very 'locals-only' feeling...In a good way. My room (a 'single') was eensy-weensy, teeny-tiny. Just wide enough to accomodate the bed, desk, and a tiny space to walk in, and just long enough to accomodate them plus a bathroom. Bathroom is perfect and spotless, and kept that way. Furnishings look just a little bit tired, but clean. Bathrobe, slippers, and a little origami swan on your bed. For around $80 US, I (a single guy, first time to Tokyo) couldn't complain.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Enough English is spoken to not be a problem for non-Japanese speakers. The lobby is tasteful, quiet, and clean, and the restaurant is the same, with a good buffet breakfast that accomodates Japanese and Western tastes. Two coin-op computer terminals in the lobby to check your email (10 minutes for 100 yen).

Train noise is (miraculously, considering the proximity) virtually inaudible with your windows shut. They've done well there...Then again, I was on the 6th floor.

For a city as expensive as Tokyo (and I'm from LA!), this hotel is a real value.
