This is a well-respected older hotel, tucked away in a quiet residential area near Shiba Park, Zozoji Temple and Tokyo Tower (and a sobering walk from Roppongi nightlife). Friendly staff and the hotel's low-key atmosphere make it more intimate than the beehive activity of Tokyo's larger hotels (all bets are off in winter, however, when it serves as a popular way station for Australians headed for the slopes). Although the hotel consists of two buildings, a main building and an annex across the street in back, rooms in the main building have been closed since 2011, awaiting renovation (no word yet on when that might take place). In any case, various rooms are available, from fairly standard twins and doubles to Stylish Twins that exude a bit more class. There are also rooms that sleep four people, as well as Business Class Single rooms that make work easier with larger desks and ergonomic chairs.
