Have used this hotel for many years. Small hotel, with very professional and helpful staff. Rooms are always clean and in good condition. The buffet style breakfast is basic but very good. Never had an issue with The B. It's very convenient to the tube, so you can be in Tokyo Station in a few minutes.

The staffs were very friendly and helpful, and can speak decent English. My room was very clean. The wifi however was super slow, definitely even slower than airport wifi. Its so slow you can't even watch youtube or load emails quickly. Not what I expected when I visit Japan.
