A well situated basic, well priced hotel. Positives very close to metro (various lines) good amenities (Starbucks, subway, 7-11, family mart and a range of good local restaurants) reasonable price. Also slightly off the main room which reduced external noises which is good. Negatives, small (approx 2.5m x 3m room INC bathroom), very stuffy (air con not effective) room. Poor...

Stayed here for close to two weeks in November 2012. Great location, with good airport access (one "change" from Tokyo Station). Close to the Tokyo Subway lines, about a 2 minute walk on the street. Clean, small and functional rooms. I would skip the breakfast though, repetitive "packaged" stuff every day. Very friendly and pleasant staff spoke English. Same day...

I stayed in the b'ochanomizu for 4 nights during July for work. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful - for example they allowed me to check-in early. The rooms are small but functional with desk, internet (wired with wire provided), fridge, air-con and television (although no english programs - the CNN is overdubbed with Japanese). The bathroom is...

Reviewed 7 June 2012

The staff were super friendly during my stay, but everything else was a bit of a letdown. The room looked worn and dated (beige and grey everywhere), and even bed spread felt thin. The bed itself is one of the more firm ones I have encountered. The bathroom is like many compact hotel bathrooms. Nothing glitzy, but does the job....

Had 4 night stays in this hotel. We reserve a non-smoking room online but end up still getting a smoking room instead. They compensate by upgrading into bigger room. The size of our room very comfortable. Not sure about other room. So I guess this is a common problem for this hotel for giving a smoking room too. Wi-fi not...

The "b" chain includes a number of hotels in Tokyo, and a few dotted around the country. They're business hotels, but up to date, efficient, and clean. They're well marketed, and you pay a small premium over a non-branded hotel, so they won't be the cheapest, but still good value for money. Finding the hotel the first time was a...

We booked this hotel as it was a reasonable price and was located very close to the Tokyo underground system. When we arrived the four of us were jet lagged and incredibly culture shocked so the warm and friendly greeting when we walked through the door was really appreciated. In fact, the staff at the hotel were incredible throughout the...
