A decent well-located hotel

by 904Julia on 09 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Room was immaculate, staff were helpful, breakfast was adequate. Only things wanting were frosted windows preventing direct light from entering room, and lack of English programming (e.g., CNN) on tv. Otherwise a pleasant 3-night stay, a couple of minutes from Tokyo U. campus. Two metro stops within 10-minutes walk from hotel. Plenty of eating choices on the main street.

Very nice hotel near university

by Layla M on 28 Sep 2016 (Business Traveller)

Very nice hotel in reasonable price. Great European style breakfast. Clean, large and comfortable rooms with only Japanese channels ... with high speed internet you can be quite comfortable. 3min walking distance to the university. 5min Starbucks and 24h marker right around the corner. Highly recommended! Lots of restaurants. High quality cosmetics in the room.

Spent nine days here during a conference visit to Todai recently. Situated between Hongosanchome and Todai-mae, and a two minute walk from the university gates, it is in an ideal position for the university and a convenient position for most of the city (though 3 trains are required to get to/from Haneda). Friendly, English-speaking staff, and a nice room, though as is quite common, no view from the windows as the glass is frosted and are only opened in emergencies. Breakfast was a nice mixture ...

Quiet, modest, affordable

Echoing what other reviewers have stated, this hotel is located in a very quiet, peaceful residential neighborhood. There is no street noise at all, which is a blessing in Tokyo. Yet it is a short walk to two subway lines and a do-able (~25 min.) walk to the JR and Keisei stations at Ueno. Directions in a prior review are spot-on for walking from the Todaimai subway station, but make it appear more complicated than it is. Just walk south with Tokyo University on your left, hang a right on the sm...

An option even if you are not visiting Todai

by Bally1966 on 04 Feb 2016 (Business Traveller)

I believe most people stay here because they are visitors to Tokyo University. If you are, its location is perfect -- just 3 minutes' walk to the Red Gate. If you are not, still this may well be a good option. I must say that the booking was arranged by Todai and I am not sure if they have a corporate rate. Some 11,000 Yens per night and breakfast is included. That's reasonable. As a hotel, it's quiet, clean (as expected in most, if not all, Japanese hotels), and well serviced. It's off the mai...
