“Great treatment... Don't judge the book by its cover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

This hotel isn't right in the center of everything you would want to see in tokyo, but it is a very simple ride to Narita and once you get a hang of public transport, it's really easy to get to everything you need.

It says "business hotel," and the room that we had (four single beds) looked like a converted office space, but was big by tokyo standards, clean, and had a little fridge, hot shower with great water pressure.

Bt what stands out about the hotel, the reason I know I will stay here again, is the warm and loving reception we received by the ladies who run the place. So sweet, so nice, so kind. There is a basket of umbrella for guest use... One day it was raining and the lady literally ran after us to bring us umbrellas. She brought us some beverages one day for no reason. What a delightful woman, and it was like a mom was taking care of us.

The only down side is that the very strong, reliable Internet does not go post the lobby. But for me, not a problem.

The hotel is located one street from asakusabashi station which makes it easily accessible to get around Tokyo.

Like any city, all you want from your hotel is a comfortable bed, decent shower, great location and friendly staff and this hotel has all of the above- the price is excellent and me and my husband would definitely stay here again.

It isn't luxurious, so if that's what your after you will need to choose somewhere else but otherwise, I could not fault a thing about this hotel.

Wifi is available 24/7 in the lobby area where there is seating, printer, copier and drink machines.
Rooms have a fridge, shisheido toiletries and hair dryer.

Do a little research and you will see there are not many options in this price range in Tokyo. I used this as a one nighter in and one nighter out of Tokyo because it is not a central location to do the city. HY is neither charming nor memorable. It is a little worn around the edges; the rooms are small and a bland combination of beige on beige; the neighborhood uninteresting except for the canal nearby. But then, if you are looking in this price range, none of that matters too much to you, right? So on to the positives: The staff is friendly and competent and speak reasonable English. The rooms are clean. The mattress is comfortable. The shower is hot and strong. The wifi downstairs is decently fast (none in the rooms but there is a LAN connection). The street is nice and quiet at night. There are convenience stores 2 minutes away on foot open late at night and early in the morning. Best of all there is a train station 5 minutes away on foot that is convenient to both airports and to the main Tokyo station. Stylistically and spaciously HY is nothing to crow about- until you have seen the alternatives- then as a value it moves instantly into the Very Good category. I will be staying here again when hopping off to other Japanese cities.

This hotel provides a bargain option for staying in Tokyo. The location is excellent, just a few steps from a subway station on the line assessible to both airport. The hotel is reasonably clean, but really basic. Staff is friendly and helpful. The owner lady was also nice. It's perfect for young people on budget travel, but with family, you may want to pay more to find a more comfortable place.

Although it took us a while to find this hotel, it was all we could ask for!

It was clean, staff were polite and helpful, there is access to wifi and was not too far from Central Tokyo.

We only stayed in the hotel for one night (and not for very long as we were out exploring Tokyo), but we had a great nights sleep and the shower/toilet facilities in the room were fine.

I would stay there again, its no frills - but if you only what somewhere to stay a night or two its perfect.

Stayed for 9 nights from June 6th to June 14th(except the 8th). The staff is very friendly and accomadating. They'll help you with anything you ask. The owners daughter Tomoko-san speaks excellent english and most of the current staff(i have met) speak it also. It helps knowing some japanese though. The room was simple and affordable, its kept clean. You have a fridge and small bathroom, tv and a little desk. If you are traveling by yourself or in a small group this place is a good stay. The JR subway and Sobu line are very close so its easy to get anywhere from the location. There are many restaurants available and supermarkets to buy food so its covenient especially when your tired after a day out. I would stay here again and recommend it also.

At the beginning, we only planned to stay for 2 nights in this little pretty hotel, but the good price of the room, the practical location of the hotel (1min on foot to the Asakusabashi station) and the friendliness of the staff made us stay twice as long as planned !
I recommend it !!!
