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. But it's decent otherwise. The coffee is terrible, but other than that, the breakfast is good: buns, eggs, sausage, toast, salad, and yogurt on the western side of things, and also Japanese options.
