The hotel actually renovated and changed its name to Hotel Strix.
The rooms were typical of japan's hotels, small but clean. Nicely decorated.
The room is equipped with the seat-warming/bidet type of electronic bowl. Provides a yukata, shower gel, shampoo and hair rinse, of which they are from shiseido.
The hotel staff were really nice and helpful. Spoke a smattering of english (which is always helpful).
The breakfast in the mornings were really good, you can choose between a western or japanese style breakfast.
It is very conveniently located, about 5minutes walk from JR Ikebukuro station. Just head out the west exit and walk along right side of the main road.
I also liked that there were plenty of eateries in the allies behind the hotel, plus tons of fast food and convenience stores (Conbini).
Will definately stay here again.
Unique Quality: Easy to find location.
Directions: Exit from JR Ikebukuro West exit and walk along the main street on the right side.
You will hit it in about 5mins
