I stayed in a Twin room , the room was surprisingly big and the bathroom is a proper (non-Japanese plastic) bathroom.

The breakfast is good enough to set off the day. Only down side is that there is no lift access to the underground platform towards the airport direction.

Dear chankaryau,
Thank you for staying with us at the b ochanomizu and sharing your feedback of your stay.
We are pleased to know we were able to exceed your expectations on room size, and to provide comfortable stay.
However we are sorry for the inconvenience that you had to use stairs to metro platform with travel luggage.
Acutally there is another lift to metro platform towards the airport direction.
As with exit A5 of the station which is nearest exit to our hotel, another lift is also equipped at A6 on the other side of the main street.
We very regret we failed to let you know this information before leaving.

We believe our location is beneficial for both business and leisure travelers as we are conveniently located and easily accessible to many attractions of Tokyo, and only one minute walking distance to nearest station. Akihabara, famous for electronics, is within walking distance as well.
So it would be very appreciated if you consider and stay with us again.
Thus we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back again on your next visit to Tokyo.
Sincerely,

T.Harada / Hotel Manager

This is a nice business hotel in Tokyo. Rooms are small (as it's the case with hotels like this one), there's a complimentary breakfast, rooms have wifi, and the hotel is accessible through the Marunouchi, Chiyoda, and Shinjuku subway lines. Most importantly, rooms are very affordable, so the hotel is a great value if you don't want to pamper yourself.

I stayed here with my teenage son and I must say even though the b is a basic hotel, the hotel and its room is clean and people there are helpful, esp the housekeeping guy (sorry I did not get his name). We needed to borrow an extension cable and a pair of scissors on both occasion and soon after the call, he came knocking our door with the aid. Humidifier was available upon our request, and it was extremely useful during the cold and dry month.

There are 6 stations within walking distance, and Awajicho and Ochanomizu stations are just a minute walk and coming/going to Haneda airport is cheap (JPY570) and convenient (only 1 transfer). Elevators are available and we didn't really have to struggle with our luggage except one flight of staircase.

And just across the street, we had the best, very affordable, miso ramen in Japan.

Lastly, the price we paid is even more value for money as breakfast is included.

We just visited in November 2015 and the days were still in the 60-70's, yet they had turned off the airconditioning. We prefer to have the air on at night to sleep. The room was so hot. We complained to the front desk and they speak very little english and they said we sorry nothing we can do, they offered to open the window in our room. Second night another front desk girl came on, she understood what we were asking for and her manager approved for her to go by us a fan or we would have checked out. Thank God. We stayed 2 additional days. The rooms are very tiny. We first had a double with one bed, not big enough for our suitcases and us, we had 4 bags. So the next day we moved to a twin room, it had a double bed and a twin for like 3 people. We used the double for us and the twin for sitting on and our bags. The toiletries are wonderful. But if you are traveling from the USA, pack wash cloths, they do not have them. The have this towel called a body towel and it will not work to wash your face, ladies. They will not let you check in prior to 3pm/1500 hrs. They will however store your luggage for you till check in. If you want a late checkout it is an additional 1500 YEN. If you book your room with breakfast, it was sufficient. I loved the ginger salad dressing. So I ate salad and bread for breakfast everyday. We took the Narita Express from the Narita Airport then a taxi from the train station to the hotel. With the luggage, it was easier that way. There is a Family Mart across the street for bottled water, food open 24hrs. There is a 7-11 on the next street, this has the ATM for American Debit/Credit Cards. Their ATMs will not accept our cards. There is a Tullys Coffee and a Starbucks 1 block away. Bed was like a board, pillows were great. Not a fancy hotel, but very clean, friendly, and a expresso machine in the lobby.

Room Tip: 7th fl corner #701

Dear Julie,
Thank you for choosing the b ochanomizu and taking your time to write this review. First of all, we are really sorry about our air-conditioning system and our lack of language skills. I am glad to see the fan we bought worked for you. Also it is very nice to read your positive comment about our toiletries.
And the room's size might be "Tokyo size"... sorry for inconvenience.
Free freshly brewed coffee and computer use in the lobby are some of the most popular amenities at the hotel. I will share your comment about our breakfast with our catering staff.

Thanks again for sharing your experience with us. Please come back and see us again!

Best regards,

If you have a JR pass, this is a good 10 minutes walk from the JR OCHANOMIZU station.

The nearest exit to here would be the Tokyo Metro Marinouchi line, exiting at Awajicho Station. Look for exit A5 and as soon as you exit the escalator, the hotel is located on your left BEHIND the building of the Music School. If you walk across the street towards Family Mart store then you are on the wrong side.

About the hotel. This is a small hotel. For the price I am paying at 20,000 Yen per night. This is small and I am hoping for a better one instead of this.

JR pass holders - this is far. 10 minutes may not sound far but when it rains ...it is far

Washing machine and dryer provided on 9th floor but don't waste your time. It is a small 7 kg machine. When it spins, it feels like a bomb turning. The dryer is pathetic. I used for 3 hours and the clothes not dry.

The position of the power point on the table is not good at all. See picture. If you have a travel plug. Too bad. You have to charge on the floor. There are no plugs near the bed. A pressing machine for cloth ironing provided beside the bed in the already small room.

Due to the limitations in number of power outlets, I had to find one beside the refrigerator and boy was it soooo dirty behind. See picture.

Kettle provided. Green tea provided. Adequate shower amenities.

There is no safe boxes and no cupboard to store your clothes at all. Only a metal hanger near the door.

Breakfast provided. Room small for a family of 2 adult and 2 children. Opening a luggage is a struggle. Other than that it should be fine for sleep.

I got a non smoking room with 1 single bed and 1 super single inside. Room 701.

Dear Santawang,

Thank you for your stay with us.
We are really sorry for the value of your stay.
These days many hotels in Tokyo tend to have this kind of price range.

Sorry for bothering you about the power points. We have some socket adaptors and extension cords at the front desk.
Also we have safety box at the front desk. We should have told you.

We also apologize about laundry machines. We are going to fix them.

Again, we are sorry for inconvenience in many points during your stay.
Thank you for taking your time to write this review. King regards
