GENERAL: If you're in Tokyo, all you need is a place to crash. This is strictly a NO-FRILLS business hotel: old building, no lobby, no restaurant, etc yet unlike the Sheraton, this little, unassuming hotel provides free in-room Wifi! We booked a triple room which was a tight squeeze but we didn't mind. Booked directly with hotel for standard triple room. Rates varied per night from 12,000 - 14,500 per night (US$ 149 to 180).
FOOD: There are plenty of places to eat on the road including 24-hour Family Marts that have ready made Japanese snacks, a Starbucks with large upstairs seating, a McDonalds (I know, I know...). One place you MUST eat is the Matsukasa beef restaurant Yoshizawaon the same road...OMG.. best beef EVER. Order the steak and rice lunch set for something like 2900 yen. Its attached to the butcher shop on the corner as you make your way to the subway (past Starbucks). www.ginza-yoshizawa.com/
TRANSPORT / NEIGHBORHOOD: Several Subway stops are within a few blocks. The main Tokyo train station is within reasonable walking distance (20 minutes) if you are so inclined. Taxi from station about 1000 yen. We liked the Ginza area because it's a calm, quiet, and elegant neighborhood. Didn't want to stumble out into the craziness of Shibuya, etc. You can easily walk to the fish market from the hotel.
If you're okay with a basic room and hotel, this is a very good option. If you want something with ambiance, then you should choose somewhere else.
