We liked this hotel - we spent 4 nights here, and it was perfect for getting around Tokyo (with subway stations very nearby). The Akihabara area is one of the best in the city, with a wide array of shops, restaurants and sights. The hotel staff are attentive; they don't speak much English, but they understand everything. They offer tourist information, a lobby with wifi and computers, and umbrellas if it rains ... the room is the Japanese type, spacious with a TV, fridge, tea and coffee facilities, sink, shower and basic service. The pillows are a little hard, as they usually are in a Ryokan. The hotel needs a bit of renovation to remove the horrible, dirty carpets on all floors, and the ventilation should be fixed up as it smells of greasy food.
