This is a very Japanese business hotel. The rooms have Japanese style bedding (Futon) which you must put together yourself every night (not difficult). The Futons could be too uncomfortable for unaccustomed western travelers but you can ask for more padding from the staff. The rooms were very clean, they had a main room and a spare room in addition to the bathroom/shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful although not all spoke English. Would recommend for those on a budget.


Great place, helpful staff! Location is decent!


Would like to have cboices for beverages example coffee instead of only green tea available. The rest is good and really appreciate the staff allow us to use the lounge to before check in time.


Very nice hotel. Japanese style room, to make you really feel you are in Japan. Location was good enough, although Shin-Okubo isn't a touristy spot. The staff was really polite, helping us with some enquiries in english.

Fantastic stay! Staff were wonderful, room was traditional and comfortable, great wifi connection for further planning and awesome location for getting around town. Highly recommend.


Awesome and helpful staffs! Loved the fact that they cleaned up our room every day as well. Its nice to head back knowing that there are clean towels to use for shower every night. The one thing that needs improvement is the bathroom though. Ventilation can be improved.
