    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Convenient location, near to both metro and JR line. The room is small, but clean. Can get a little cold due to no heater. I'm out most of the time for sightseeing, only need the room for shower and sleep, so... overall, no complaint with the price I'm paying. The receptions are nice and polite.

    The hotel is situated in a great location near to Asakusabashi and Akihabara stations and easy to travel around Tokyo by subway. The hotel staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would stay there again and also recommend to others.
