“Quiet stay in Toyko”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

if you are looking for a quiet, safe and budget place to stay in Tokyo, Flex Stay inn at Sugamo will suit your desire. You can walk 5 min to JR Yamanote line Sugamo station or Mita Metro line. Sugamo is very convenient place to go to Ueno direcion or to Ikebukuro and Shibuya direction. There are plenty of resturants around station and on the main street. The facilty in the hotel is good for long stay. Have small bath tub and shower, separated washing sink, tiny fridge, portable electricity hot plate, kettle, pot, mug, slippers. Washing and drying machine using coins are provided in separate room.

Very comfortable room in a quiet, laid back part of town at a very reasonable price. The main shopping street nearby is also known as the "grannys harujuku". There's a nice, retro feeling to the area that gives it a kind of Shita-machi atmosphere. After a busy day in Tokyo, it feels like coming home to a real neighborhood. I'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed at Weekly mansion sugamo from 26th June - 30th June 2012.

Service
This property have daily maid service, but you need to pay for that. So if you don't want to pay, you need to clean up your room by your own. There is vacuum cleaner, but i don't use that, don't have time and i think the room still clean as i use it just for sleep and take a bath. You can ask for changing bath towel at the front office.
The front office just available from 9AM - 5PM or 6PM i forget. After that, there is telephone that you can use, there is night shift staff that will assist your need. I arrive at 8AM, i can't check in, because check in time is at 3PM, so i decided to put my luggage and start my adventure at Tokyo. The night shift staff hardly speaking English, but he tried so hard to assist you, i respect that. I get back to Weekly Mansion Sugamo around 4.30 PM and check in procedure need a little time, but goes smoothly, the front office woman can speak English, not great but you understand of what you need to do if you get back late and if you need to check out early.
My luggage already in my room along with package for me. Good job!

Value / Rooms
The room is quiet big for the price (7000 YEN), i stayed at standard twin A, i got two semi double bed, quiet big. the room has a space for my luggage.

Sleep Quality
Sugamo area is so quiet, everytime i got back around 10-10.30 PM, it's already very quiet, just one or two peoples still outside.

Cleanliness
Japan is very clean in general, the hotel is also very clean, but the property is not in the finest quality, there is little refurbished need to do, but it's clean.

Location
The positive side it's quiet, but negative side there is nothing much going on the neighbourhood. the website said you can walk around 6 minutes to the property from Sugamo station, but if you bring luggage i think you need more, maybe about 10-15 minutes. if you just got back from outside, maybe 8-10 minutes. Japanese is a very fast walker, so maybe they count it with their own ability to walk, you can reach the propert in 6 minutes, if you run. Take south exit, walk accross, turn right, go straight until you find a shrine, turn left, walk until you see pizza hut, turn right, keep walking and you will find the property.

Overall i enjoyed my stay at Weekly mansion sugamo, maybe i will back again here if i visit Tokyo. Good job all staff!!! Keep up a good work! Ganbatte!
