Great place to crash in Tokyo, really quiet, good scenery next to the Sumida river and within 15 minutes of several train / subway stations. For those using the JR pass, Hatchobori station is 15 minutes away and only a station away from Tokyo station for shinkansen connections, the Chuo line or the Yamanote line.
The rooms are big by Tokyo standards and come packed with a fridge, tv, AC and a microwave oven. As a plus, there are several free to use washing machines. The manager, Sasano-san, is a great host and speaks fluent english.
Great value overall, will definitely come back.

I am a frequent traveler to Japan, for 2 weeks at a time, and do not feel the need to pay the high prices to stay at the fine hotels catering to those on expense accounts. I now enjoy searching out comfortable and inexpensive accommodations, which have the adding benefit of introducing me to unfamiliar sections of Tokyo, and sometimes Osaka. Having stayed at 8-10 "guesthouses", "weekly mansions" and "apato" over the past 2 years, I can say with considerable confidence that Kurumi Mansion is the best-in-class for inexpensive, short- to medium-term stays.
The strong points: 1) spacious rooms, compared to Japanese business hotels. I had one of the smaller rooms on the ground floor, and it had twice the space of the Tokyu Inn I had stayed at in Osaka; 2) mini-fridge, microwave, hot plate and dishes in your room; 3) in-room toilet, bath/shower; 4) free laundry machines; 5) 10-minute walk to Monzennakacho station and a cluster of ramen, Japanese and Indian curry, Mister Donuts, McDonalds, Freshness Berger and the like in that area; 6) Mr. Sasano, who runs the Kurumi Mansion business office and is very personable and helpful.
The less-than-optimal points: Although you can walk 10-12 minutes to three different stations (Kayabacho, Suitengumae and Monzennakacho), you still have to walk 10-12 minutes. If it's raining or you're coming home late in the night cold, you will wish it were closer. And, personal observation, Japanese washers and driers found in homes are not as effective at cleaning and drying as ones in the US. It could be the technology that prioritizes water and energy conversation above all, but the end result is just not effective. Several blocks away there is a coin laundry with commercial-size appliances, where the results will be better.
Finally, the word seems to have gotten out what a fine deal the Kurumi Mansion is, such that I took the last available room with a reservation made 10 days in advance. At less than $40/night it is a great bargain.

A nice and pleasant stay with great river view if you get the room with window. The apartment is a little old but all the necessities are made available. The host is very friendly, well-mannered, helpful and speaks very well English!! that cut down half the effort to learn about the neighbourhood and all the essential where-about Tokyo attractions.
During the first week of Spring the natural breeze coming from the river gave me a good night sleep.
I will definitely consider to stay there again on return trip.

We stayed at Kurumi Mansion for our first week in Tokyo. It was an easy commute from Narita Airport and a 10 minute walk from 3 metro stations, particularly with the great directions provided for us. The owner was kind and helpful in orientating us to Tokyo, seeming to really want us to enjoy his city. Another perk was the lovely tea house down the street (just opposite the convenience store) where the tea-lady enthusiastically encouraged us to practice our bad Japanese. The rooms are basic (beds could be a little comfier) but incredible value in quite an expensive city, particularly with free wifi and clothes washing- would return again :)

Room Tip: River View rooms give a great chance to people watch
