You could walk by this business hotel and not even notice it, yet it has a great location across the street from the Imperial Hotel and within easy walking distance of the Ginza and Imperial Palace. Its reception is on the second floor, where there's also a Muji Café & Meal, known for its inexpensive and healthy meals. Rooms are tiny, but all have the surprising addition of massage chairs and some single and double rooms even have views of Hibiya Park or palace grounds between buildings. Glass walls separating bathrooms from living space make them seem larger. Note that twin rooms don't have windows, while single and double rooms have only showers. Although a business hotel, this place also caters to women with a devoted Ladies Floor and the Takarazuka Sky Stage cable channel free of charge, but the extremely popular Takarazuka Kagekidan theater just down the street, with its all-female cast performing musical revues, is what draws in devoted fans, who are overwhelmingly women. There's another branch in Akihabara.
