    the Female staffs were very helpful. The Room was clean, neat and very relaxing. The Shower was very comfortable to use. Too bad we should have booked Smile hotel in Tokyo. But when in Japan we already know our Hotel of Choice

    I was a little disappointed that the hotel was so worn and in need of improvements. What I liked: -The location: close to restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacies, station and public transportation to various tourist attractions.
