If you're staying in Tokyo for an extended period (30 day min.) this is a wonderful choice. The rooms are HUGE in comparison to regular hotel rooms. We stayed in a premier studio and it felt like a good sized apartment with kitchen, washer/dryer,etc.
Great central location, close to Oedo train line
Free breakfast (very basic though)
Medium size safe in room (big deal for those with laptops, iPads, etc)
Tokyo Tower is next door
Right next door to a park
Walk to Zojoji Temple in 5 min
Could have been a little cleaner, chairs/couch had some stains, rice cooker had some old rice still stuck in it.
No fancy Toto in bathroom
Most staff members are super nice but some are not great with concierge type requests. The female staff were generally more helpful and efficient when it came to making reservations, getting directions, etc.
Balcony is tiny, more like an escape hatch. But nice if you want to let some fresh air into room.
TIP: Make a right when leaving the hotel, walk a couple blocks and you'll find a great pizza restaurant (blue and white decor) with good lunch specials. Walk a another half block and you'll find a great Cali style Mexican restaurant (O&J, open weekday evenings only). These are both before Kamiyacho station.
