I LOVED this hotel. It was the perfect Japanese experience. The staff was friendly, the price was reasonable, it was clean, safe, good internet and a great location. I was looking for a "pod" hotel for my one night trip to Tokyo and this one was perfect. Granted it was on a Saturday night, so I'm sure I missed the drunken Japanese business men but it was quiet and very comfortable. Granted the bed was on the very firm side, but I was tired and didn't notice. Finding the hotel was another story. Even with 2 maps and some directions it still took a good half hour to figure out which street it was on. We were looking about 2-3 blocks away and I asked at least 4 people and none of them knew where it was. So, short version is if you get off the Metro line in Akihabara, do a 180 and go down 2 blocks and turn leff, it's down a couple/few block from there on your left. If you're coming from the JR line, cross the street to the south under the train tracks, turn right one block and then go left and then down a couple/few block on your left.
Short version, would I stay here again...yes if I was with my friends or traveling solo. But not possible with my family...still it was a great experience!
