Just come back from Tokyo and stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is superb, close to JR line and metro station, it is inside a shopping mall so it is a plus for those "shop till you drop" type.
Now, the negatives : the hotel is old, the lobby is crowded and tired, personally that won't affect me much as long as it is clean. The worst part is the bed, it sinks in the middle, like when you lie down, your back are pulled inside the concave area, very uncomfortable and cause back aches the next day.
Next the heater in the room is way too hot, I have to call the front desk every night to request them to lower the temperature and sometimes, I have to call twice before they understand my request, and even after the supposed lower temperature has done, I still feel suffocate and couldn't sleep well.
Lastly, you have to pay 100yen for the use of wifi computer at the lobby for online check in is sooooo "Cheap act"...
