“Budget Stay”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

I've stayed in Toyoko Inn 2. This hotel is about few minutes walk to the subway. However, the location is rather difficult to find. There are Toyoko Inn 1 and Toyoko Inn 2. Both on diffennt locations nearby. Toyoko Inn 1 have better service receptions. The room is very cramp with only a small walking space. Haha, you have to store your luggage bags under the bed and no wardrobes provided. They provide a very simple acceptable breakfast. (Buns and porridge). Taste very much like home cook. There is a bus to the airport but needs to walk quite a distance. As for the subway, you need 1 transfer..

Toyoko Inn business hotels are my go-to choice whenever I travel around Japan. I almost always had satisfactory experience even in Tokyo, where hotel staff would have a higher tendency to be jaded from meeting more foreigners than staff in other prefectures.

That was why we were so taken aback by the rude service we received during our stay at this particular Ikebukuro branch. One reception staff, a chubby lady with short dyed brownish hair, was impatient and brusque on all the days we were staying there. Worst thing is she was often the only one there so we had no choice but to interact with her - most unpleasant.

Should had booked Ikebukuro No.2. The staff there were great when we stayed here previously.

This is always my choice of hotel whenever I went to Tokyo. It is a few minutes walk from the station and there are plenty of convenience stores, shopping malls and restaurants all within a few minutes walk.

Room rate also comes with free breakfast and WiFi. Breakfast is simple but very delicious.

Room is small but there are spaces under the bed for luggage. There is a mini fridge, in room safe, kettle and TV in the room. Bathroom is also small but equipped with bath tub. You can opt for a Eco plan which is 300 yen cheaper, this means that the room will not be cleaned. This is good especially if you planned to start your day late as the housekeeping will start to clean the room at 10am.

We stayed twice at Toyoko Inn Ikebukuro No. 1 - May 2010 & May 2013. It's about 10 mins walk from the Ikebukuro Station. It's very convenient to many stores/shops/restaurants, especially for those who are traveling from/to Narita Airport via NEX. Like most rooms in Tokyo, the room is small but the bed is comfortable - we had the Queen size bed. Bathroom is tight but manageable. Afterall, we just need a place to sleep after walking around during the day. This Toyoko Inn location offers both the Japanese rice buns and western style sandwiches in the morning along with miso soup/tea. We love being fed warm food in the morning. It's also nearby at least 3 convenient stores.

Small rooms. Busy hotel. Fee wifi. Discount available for club members. Flexible rates during the week. Restaurant will be open after 7 am. So getting breakfast if you have morning flight will be difficult.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the street.

Good value for money - excellent location, walking distance to JR station and subway. Japanese breakfast gives you a touch of the Japanese culture. Staff with very limited English but very friendly. Extremely clean, spotless I would say.

Room Tip: Key point: communication, verbal and transport

As with most business hotels in Tokyo, you're not expecting large rooms. Very near to the train station. Queen size bed at a very reasonable price around these parts and sufficient space for modestly sized luggage. Comfortable, well-lit and quiet. Bathroom was incredible - it was tiny but still had a sink, toilet and shower-bath - how did they fit all those in? For a old man like myself I had to squeeze in but it's not a big deal. Desk with mirror for writing. Everything in superb working condition. Lots of vending machines at the lobby and competent staff. Even free Japanese style breakfast is thrown in.

Truly a good deal.
