Great for a short stay - maybe just not for a week. There was no laundry facilities. There was apparently a laundromat nearby, but because of the rain, we decided just to wash a few items by hand in our room and use the clothes line above the shower to dry them on.
The restaurant and bar on the top floor was expensive. We wanted to go and just have drinks, but when we got the drink menu we were shocked at the expensive prices and left. Like ¥1000+ just for a glass of coke. Also the beers were around this price. We’d not ever spent more than ¥350 on a beer or soft drink, and wasn’t about to. Not the hotels fault, but for the first couple of nights we did have someone very noisy staying above us.
Definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay, but if you stay for 5 days or more, make sure you find out where the laundromat is first. Just inconvenient to have to leave the hotel and sit around in a laundromat for a couple of hours while you do your laundry, although I’m sure it’s quite safe to leave and come back. For us, besides the rain, it was the inconvenience of it - which is why we didn’t bother.
We really liked the location of this hotel. Only a about a 5 min walk to the train station. Across the road was a Lawson’s, a Family Mart and 7-11. There was also Burger King, some restaurants, fruit and vegetable shop. At the train station were more shops and eateries. We didn’t get to have breakfast at the hotel, but there’s plenty of shops around to choose from. We found a nice French Patisserie near the train station and the 3 of us had a pastry and coffee each, all for under ¥2000. The room was a decent size. We had 2 large suitcases, 3 small suitcases and 3 backpacks and there was plenty of room to store most of them and still had plenty of room to move. Bed was comfortable. Great view of the Skytree from our room. Got lazy and took a taxi to the Skytree instead of trains and cost about ¥1000. Also not far from the hotel is a small shopping centre opposite a large park. It has a variety of shops. We got bottled water every day. The staff were pleasant. The concierge even ran out in the rain to hail us a taxi. I would stay here again, but maybe not for a whole week again. (See negative comments below as to why).
