I read up on this hotel so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect in advance. For the price I paid, it exceeded my expectations. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. It seems to be family run and so they all truly care about the business and their guests. They offer many maps and information and of course advise upon request. The private bathroom in my room was very well designed and functional. It is a simple inn, but it is well organized, clean and cheerful. There is one metro station and a few restaurants about a 5 minutes’ walk from the inn or you can also walk to the much larger Ikebukuro station in around 20 minutes. It is located in an authentic middle class neighborhood, real if not glamorous. Maybe not the kind of place you would want to stay on a honeymoon, but, for my first 3 nights in Tokyo as a solo traveler, I found it an extremely pleasant and affordable choice I’m glad I made.
