“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Finding accommodation in Tokyo in July on very short notice is kind of impossible. Having tried all the places where we actually wanted to stay, The Tokyo Inn was pretty much the only option left. The hotel is a bit worn down, but it is a real hotel and really not a bad choice. It is a little bit out of the way, but let's face it, you WILL be doing a lot of traveling no matter where you stay in Tokyo. The Tokyo Inn is good value. We might return.

The Tokyo Inn is conveniently located right next to the North exit of Magome station on the Toei subway line, so has fairly fast connections to all the main Tokyo attractions. Because it is outside the centre it can often be found at a much better rate (and has on-site car parking for a daily fee if anyone is mad enough to want to drive there!)

Rooms are very small and were OK except for a very noisy motor in the bedside alarm clock that cannot be unplugged (so I ended up sleeping the wrong way round on the bed). There's a small bath/toilet and fridge provided. Reception was friendly although, as is normal, would not allow you to check in before 3pm, although they will look after your luggage - if you have time to kill, I would recommend seeking out the Ikegami Honmonji Temple complex about 25 minutes walk away - there are plenty of free, English language maps in reception which will show you how to find it.

The hotel is above a Coco's family restaurant which serves a decent Western/Japanese style buffet breakfast, ideal before setting out on a long day's sightseeing in Tokyo. Their evening menu is less interesting (mainly faux-Italian food) but it's convenient; the Inn also provides a list of nearby restaurants by genre, with the usual choice of C-stores within 10 minutes' walk.

If using the Toei line, note that not all trains run through to central Tokyo and going South to the hotel it's often best to take a Haneda train to Sengakuji (A07) then pick up a shuttle to Magome.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quieter than those facing the main road.

A little far from the Narita and the main city area but there's a train station just opposite the hotel. Friendly staff. Room was a little small (but then again all hotels in Japan are) but spacious enough for 2 people. Cheap for a hotel in Tokyo but with 5* service * amenities. Only problem is that there is no wifi but you can use the computer for free at the lobby.

Overall an excellent budget business hotel. Wouldn't mind going back there again =)

Perfect hotel with small rooms but very clean.
The nearest metro station is at almost 20mt....VERY VERY NEAR!
The staff was very nice...

Commenting on the previous review - Tokyo is 2 hours via train and metro away from Narita. So hotels in Tokyo will be 2 hours away. Magome station is very close to the hotel. The public transport system is so efficient and convenient you can get to the rest of Tokyo without too much hassle. If you stand looking at the maps for more than 30 seconds often someone will offer to help you.
If you want to stay close to the airport don't go into Tokyo.
The restaurant is open from 7am to 2 am.

Tokyo Inn is a small budget hotel. It is clean. The staff didn't speak very fluent English but they spoke it better than I did Japanese. I've stayed their twice and I'd stay there again.

Tokyo Inn is basically 2 hours via train and metro away from Narita. If you just want a stop over hotel look at a metro map of Japan and pick a hotel that is not the other end of Tokyo. There is a trick with the metro and you should make sure you are on the correct line as the tokyo inn is on a dog's leg line.
As a hotel no complaints. Neat clean. Super small room. Convenience store across road. Resturant closed by time jet lag munchies kicked in.
Breakfast interesting fusion of western items cooked in non western manner. This may be standard in Japan ??
