We checked in this hotel in October 2013 (superior rooms, higher floors). The check in service was very quick and smooth. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bell captain brought our luggage to our rooms and explained everything about the room and wi-fi. The hotel offers great breakfast buffet so ask for your discount coupon when checking in. We love shopping so this hotel was perfect as it is near the IKEBUKURO stations so there are many, many department stores within walking distance. Ikebukuro is almost like Shinjuku but less busy and less traffic. Major department stores are TOBU, SEIBU, LUMINE, ESOLA, Bigcamera, also some drugstores nearby as well (Matsumoto Kiyoshi). Ikebukuro has soooo many ramen shops and IZAKAYAs so must try! Convenience stores nearby as well (7-11, Family Mart, and Lawson) everything within two-minute walk. You can take trains to anywhere in Tokyo within 30 minutes. Very convenient.
Rooms: we had one double and one single room (all superior). The double room was an okay size for Tokyo. Beautifully decorated with all amenities, wi-fi, kettle, coffee/tea, fridge, TV, etc. Clean and nice bathroom provides bath salt, shampoo, conditioner, soap, women's amenities, etc. The single room was particularly spacious for a one person with a small couch and coffee table. Same amenities.
The hotel provides shuttle service to and from airport. Very convenient and only 3,000 yen with excellent service. We used to take the local trains or Narita Express, but we would now very much prefer to take the bus - no transfers and your luggage delivered for you. Best service and very convenient.
We have visited Tokyo over 10 times and would say that this is the best hotel so far. A little bit more expensive than budget hotels but definitely excellent service and LOCATION! I would prefer this than Hilton or Hyatt any day.
