The hotel is in the district of Ikebukuro. It’s not in the heart of Tokyo, but after extensive research my wife and I decided it was more appealing to stay just outside of the busier and noisier districts. It’s always nice to come home to a quiet hotel for some much needed rest after a day of sightseeing. Finding our hotel though, would prove to be an adventure in its own. The street names are all in Japanese, and our map to our hotel was in English. Finding someone who speaks English to help with directions was futile. Thankfully there is a giant map of the district adjacent to the train station. After reviewing the map and coordinating it with our own, we took our best guess and headed off in the direction we believed our hotel is going to be. After going up and down numerous side streets we stumbled upon “Hotel Grand City” and we could not have been more relieved. The staff spoke broken English, but it’s more than enough to get by. The are very warm and friendly. Upon entering the room we were not at all surprised to see how teeny tiny it is. You take 2 small steps and you are right beside the bed with only enough room to turn around and go back towards the door. There is a washroom. Again very small, but it had a deep tub with a nice shower with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The toilet seat comes installed with a bidet which was also an added bonus. The bed was hard as a rock unfortunately. This was the only negative about the room other than the size. But for only 80.00 Canadadian per night (booked off expedia) we weren't complaining.
Even though the staff speak limited English they were reakky wonderful. They assisted us with securing tickets to see a soccer game at The Nissan stadium, and when ever we saw them in the lobby the would always bow and say hello. Incredible people.
All in all we enjoyed our stay here. The price was right, location was decent and 5 star service
