Sunshine city shopping centre 5 min walk, lots of restaurants etc. Supermarkets and mini marts close by. Rooms were good, slightly bigger than what we had in other places, clean, small kitchenette with microwave was great. Great...

Stayed here for 17 nights January to Feb 2017. The hotel is very close to Otsuka station. Although, the walk back is up hill. To get there, just follow the tram line down. Sunshine city is also round the corner, meaning there are lots of restaurants of different price points to try :-) Good points - 1)The Staff speak good...

Very good location with many eateries (quite a few that are open 24 hours that serve delicious food) and small supermarkets/convenient stores around, but no good coffee nearby. 5min walk to JR Otsuka station (Yamanote line), and 10 min walk to Ikebukuro station where you can take metro and other trains besides JR.

Very short 5-8minute walk to Ikebukuro where there are decent cafes, restaurants, shopping centres and tourist attractions (Pokemon centre). The nearest JR station is Otsuka, a 6minute walk down one street. It lies on the Yamanote line so very convenient to travel around exploring other suburbs like Harajuku, Shinjuku and Shibuya. One of the cheaper neighborhoods to stay in in...

Ikebukuro isn't exactly in the center of things- and this hotel is on a sort of dark, deserted-looking street- but it's clean and not too expensive. The bathroom is like it's on a ship- so so tiny. The front desk folks are really nice- The room is REALLY small, so for two people it might be tight. I was alone...

Quite affordable and excellent customer service. Their English was very good and the staff were all more than helpful. The room was a good size and the shower had fantastic pressure. I would definitely stay here again. The free wifi was great too, as well as the free toothbrush, shampoo, moisturisers etc.

“Alight at Ootsuka station, and follow the "railway" up the gentle slope on right. This way is easier too for luggage as there is no steps. It's just 5-10 mins walk. It's hectic from Ikebukuro station.”
