We stayed here for 3 nights on the last leg of our holiday in Japan. Our rooms were very clean and the bathrooms are very modern with a fabulous shower! My room was very comfortable with a bed, couch and a small desk in the corner as well as the larger bench for the TV and coffee/tea making facilities. My...

This was my fourth time staying at The B Ikebukuro. The location is just perfect! Only 5 minutes walk from the Ikebukuro JR Station. And within 15 minutes walk you could have access to a lot of large shopping malls and department stores. The only weak point was that sometimes it could be quite noisy at night.

The hotel exceeded our expectations in terms of location & amenities offered. There are restaurants, duty free drug /beauty stores, gadgets shops everywhere as hotel is located right smack in the shopping area. There's coffee machine at the lobby where guests can help themselves to and the beds are very comfortable. We had triple sharing room with small toilet with...

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and had a great time. The price of accomodation is excellent even if the rooms are a bit small(this seems to be normal in Japan though). The location to JR station cannot be beat and the roads are nice and flat not hilly like areas of Tokyo. Room was quiet and we...

Though close to station, it takes 15 mins to walk there with luggage. Room clean. No bath tub, but nice shower. No coffee in room but available downstairs. Breakfast not worth with poor selection of food.

There were no non-smoking rooms available and I actually regret taking the room as it was so small and no way to ventilate the rooms that it was so painful to have to sleep in there. Didn't stay more than I needed to so I can't speak of the good things as I didn't get to enjoy any...

Enjoyed my stay very much. It is walking distance to shopping and train station. I traveled alone and felt safe walking around in the neighborhood at night. The room is small but comfortable. The breakfast was fine. A little bit of everything for everyone.
