There are any number of great hotels in Tokyo, especially if you want to spend a lot. This hotel is not in the luxury category, but it is a good value for the money and we spent about $130 per night for a room with a decent sized two person bed.
These are small rooms, without a lot of storage, but they are functional and clean. The rooms are getting a little beat up from the years of use, but are not bad at all.
The staff is very helpful and efficient.
As I travel in some locations of the world where in-room wifi is still not standard, I always bring a small wireless router with me. Hook this up to the Ethernet cable in your room and you have in-room wifi.
If you do not bring a wireless router, then the only available wifi is in the lobby.
The breakfast is very good if you like any form of semi-Japanese food. It is buffet style with rice, rotating fish, rotating meatballs/hot dogs of the mini japanese sort, miso soup, hard boiled eggs, lettuce/cucumber salad, coffee and tea. Rolls and croissant are also available. Yes, this not a continental breakfast that you would find in a U.S. based hotel and nothing like the great breakfast in a European hotel, but for a quick start to your day, it is fine.
The location is very good. A few minutes walk to Roppongi for connections and the Roppongi itchome subway on the Namboku line is directly in front of the hotel. The hotel entrance is set off te street, so you have to look closely for the sign.
The Ark Hills and Izumi Gardens complex is connected to the subway station and the hotel. You can find many decent restaurants here and a nice rooftop beer garden on top of the South Ark Hills tower. When we were tired we found good Tonkatsu, sushi and shabu shabu restaurants off the escalators that go to the subway station. In the rainy days of July and August, you might find that a good option after a day of wet or humid sightseeing!
Because of the proximity to the Namboku line and the five minute walk to Roppongi, you can get to any of the areas most visitors would want to go to in the urban centers of Tokyo. The front desk staff is happy to give you a subway map and show you the station interchanges you need to use.
Overall, a very good value and the rooms are very quiet.
