We visited for two nights at the start of our holiday in Japan. The location was ideal for touring the city, being just 10 minutes walk from the major station at Ikebukuro. Our twin room on the 22nd floor had extensive views over the city. Although on the small side the room had all the facilities we needed, including two...

As usual staff are friendly and helpful. 5mins walk to the nearest mrt. Hotel is within a big shopping mall where you can shop n eat. Familymart is inside the hotel so anytime you can get a quick bite. Airport shuttle bus reach directly infront of the hotel and takes around 35-40mins to reach from Haneda Airport.

Hotel is clean and safe,, very friendly staff.. Facility is provided to leave your big baggages at the hotel when you want to travel to other city light. Family mart in the hotel and smoking area at the lobby. Smoking rooms are available.. but as all Japanese rooms they are very small unless you upgrade your room.
