The hotel looks like it was recently built or updated as it is very clean and modern. It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Ikebukuro Station. The small room had a small refrigerator, air purifier, good AC, microwave, hot water pot, safe, flat screen TV, desk, chair, dishes and flatware, robes and slippers, free wifi, and even a combination clothes washer/dryer, but no closets. We didn't try the washer/dryer, as we were leaving the next day and did not want to take a chance on misinterpreting the translated English instructions. There were several hooks and hangers on the wall for hanging stuff. As is typical with a Japanese hotel bathroom, it was very compact, but had a small but deep tub with shower, sink and a bidet toilet, a hair dryer, large bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, as well as an array of disposable toothbrushes, hair brushes, razors, and shower caps. Breakfast was included in the room rate (which was about $120 per night), and was a bit different each morning, but usually included coffee, tea, fruit juice, breads, an egg dish of some sort, a hot meat dish of some sort, a rice dish, yogurt, and soup. The hotel had a computer in the lobby for use by guests. It also had very good security, as a valid room card was needed to enter the elevator lobby from the front desk area, and then again to operate the elevator. There were lots of restaurants, cafes, shops, convenience stores and department stores in the immediate vicinity, but no tourist sights to speak of. Of course, proximity to the excellent subway system provided easy access to all of Tokyo. The staff spoke adequate English as far as we could tell, but then again we did not engage them in any lengthy conversations. We found the room small but very nice, but we were two average-sized adults each traveling with a day pack and carry-on suitcase. Larger folks with bigger or more luggage may find the room too small.
