I think you can get an equally good hotel at a cheaper rate elsewhere in Tokyo. But if you choose shimbashi, you are likely here on business or official duty.
It is central and well-connected to the business and municipal district. There is plenty of food and entertainment all around.
I stayed at a superior double as the singles were fully booked. Room was small but impeccably clean. There is good reliable wifi and you are allowed to access on multiple devices at the same time. This is a major plus. Toilets are very tiny so if you are not an asian (or one 1.8 and above) you will find yourself hard pressed for space. You are highly advised to pick up the bath power from the reception and soak yourself in hot bath if you can afford the time.
The minus point, which is also plus, is the close proximity to the rail. You can hear the train running through but it is bearable since the room is sufficiently insulated although not totally. Breakfast is cheap - Y500- and simple but you may want to go out and grab macdonald. If you do not have time and prefer not to rush, it should suffice. If you need a bigger bed, go for the superior double instead of the comfort double. The minor difference being the bed-size, which is significant as a super double has more room space (with a smaller bed) in an already tiny room.
Overall an ok hotel but I wouldn't choose this hotel if i was on holiday. The hotel is good but you got to choose this for work purposes or location. Otherwise there are better hotels that you can find elsewhere for the same price.
