I used a Commonwealth Travel Money card here which cost me a 5% surcharge. For six nights this added up. This is the reason I have given it 4 out of 5, not 5 out of 5.
The rooms are pretty cute (and snug) but having said that I've been in smaller rooms. The neighbourhood is wonderful, it's very well lit and there are heaps of shops and laneways to explore. We felt very safe. McDonalds, Subway and KFC are near Ikebukuro station and a 7/11 is very close. Note that if you come back out of the street as if going to the station and make a right there is a bar with real penguins in it! It has 'The Bar in Which Penguins are Present' written on the side.
Getting from Ikebukuro Station is challenging the first time, google map it first and make sure you go out the west exit or Exit C6, preferably C6.
