Very good value for money hotel in Tokyo, and is according to Toyoko Inn standard.

Location : very good, just 5 min walk to Kuramae station and less than 10 minute walk to Senjoji temple & restaurants area in Asakusa. There is a few mini mart nearby too.

Room : I booked for 'king size double' for me and my husband, and booked 'twin rooms' for my friends. Everyone is happy, the room is big compared to other hotels with this price range and considered being in such a location in Tokyo. Bathroom is a bit small though.

Staffs : day-time staff is great, she can communicate in English extremely well! is very helpful and super multi tasking (can manage several check in by herself!). However, the night & early morning shift staffs are not that effecient. They barely speak English and don't understand my questions & requests much.

Other : free breakfast is served and is nice.

We booked via the phone and from the onset, there were clear language barriers. However, this did not make them any less helpful and they were never frustrated at us nor did they make us feel frustrated. Instead, when we arrived, to explain what our choice of costs looked like (We had a choice to make it cheaper with alternate days of cleaning), the girl kindly wrote down the days that they would be cleaning and the prices it would be at with and without cleaning.

The hotel probably looks a little worn out, both inside and outside. And, like most budget Japanese hotels, they were on the small side. However, I hear that it is typical of a business hotel and, really, we were there for the comfort at the end of the day - to this end, we were very comfortable. Beds and pillows were great - not fluffy, but good enough to keep us rested.

Pros:
Located near a number of attractions
Located near a lot of 24 hours convenience stores (really handy) and good, cheap restaurants
very nice staffs, right down to the kitchen
awesome free breakfast - partner still raves about it to this day. it was the one thing we missed and regretted not choosing this chain of hotel again in Kyoto.
Easy to use laundry - but be warned, the dryer takes about 2 cycles to dry.
Value for money
Honest staffs - but don't test it.
Got freebies! - had a choice of a few, chose the facial pack for women.

Con:
This is more of a personal preference than a real con. Toyoko-inn's 2 hotels in this area sits on the private train line rather than the JR line. To get there was a bit of a walk. At the end of a couple of nights, when we were completely exhausted, this walk was dreadful to contemplate.

That said, I move on to Nagoya later on and stayed in their branch there, which was right across the road from the JR station. It was absolutely fantastic as well!

The room was big, clean, modern and the bathroom had more toiletries than other hotels and it was very clean. Good sleep in big and comfy bed. Good japanese breakfast. Good location. Staff was friendly and kind, giving me a present on my arrival.

This hotel is what you can expect from a good Japanese business hotel. The rooms are small but clean and well taken care of. My hubby and I stayed here for our last night in Japan and I have no complaints. It's near Ginza, Asakusa, train stations and Narita. We couldn't have asked for more convenience.

Was there on March 2012. The location is good - near to subways. Walking distance ard 15-20mins. We usually use the Asakusa station. Sensoji temple - also very near to the hotel. Walking distance (20mins).
Room is clean but then it's not that spacious. However it's just enough to rest and put yr luggages around. Besides, our window can see the street view - beautiful lights at night but no worries - it's not noisy to disturb yr sleep.
Service also friendly but then the receptionist does not speak well in English - so use body language will work fine. You also can join as member - there are a lot of other Toyoko chains ard Japan. If you plan to stay other Toyoko hotels, then better sign up as member. Can save up some of the $$$ for food/shopping :P Provided pyjamas as well. Bfast was served in their front lobby - the cafeteria space is small) - so better go early for bfast, else no seating.
Overall the hotel is worth the value and comfortable place to stay.
