With only nine rooms, this exquisite hotel sits in the quiet part of Chiyoda nestled amongst professional grad schools (Nihon U's Dental School), hospitals, and private medical clinics. It's a 5 minute walk to the Ochanomizu JR station and Shin Ochanomizu metro stop. It's a 10 minute walk to the wildly popular (to teenagers) Kando Shrine. And pleasant 15 minute... More

Love the Sakura room where I stayed for 2 evening. The room is gigantic by Tokyo standard. Very serene and peaceful. The modern twist accentuates the experience. The bathroom is very relaxing with a earthen ofuro to soak the stress and muscle ache. Breakfast was served in the room and very filling. YOLO experience!

On every way Only 9 rooms , so you have all attention from the superb staff. The rooms are spacious and a perfect architecture mix between the modern and traditional Japanese style. Special small attention, such as a daily new origami, flower on the table and new kimono. Enjoy the restaurant downstairs with all green tea-meals. Wonderful.
