Good value and a great location for exploring Shimokitazawa's amazing vibes and vintage stores. After staying in Akasaka for the first leg of our trip and then coming here after Kyoto for our final few days before heading home, it was nice to be in a calmer Tokyo neighborhood that still had access to the east side of Tokyo (Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, etc.).||The rooms are super sparse and we read reviews so were aware of that going in. Rooms are nothing special and do feel a little claustrophobic tbh--but since it was only a few nights we were ok with it. The free breakfast and amazing coffee area in the lobby was the highlight and it was really nice to enjoy breakfast on the sunny patio that was vibrant and had great people watching. ||Also loved that the hotel offered discounts at some great small businesses nearby so we did a ton of fun shopping for unique gifts.||Staff was friendly and helpful.

The perks are that it is a very clean room with all the basics. Staff are nice, coffee is good and the nearby complex on the same block has lots of interesting places to eat and drink and experience. The cons are that there is no character in any of the rooms and the location of the hotel feels really out of the way. I’d prefer to book somewhere closer to the main subway lines where you didn’t have to spend so much time travelling which I’ll do so next time. But the value of cost each night is amazing. If you’re spending a while in Tokyo like we did (10 days) you won’t find better priced accomodation for what it is.
