I found Hotel Nihobashi while browsing for accommodations in Tokyo on www.booking.com. Then I looked at the reviews and found that they were favorable mainly because of the location and the price.
We arrived very early at around 8 or 9am. Checkin is at 3pm. So we just changed our clothes and left our luggage. Paid for our room for the next 3 nights and left for lunch and to roam around as not to waste time.
When we came back, our luggage was already in our room and we just went strait to our room which was really small but it was nice.
The bathroom was okay. It seems older but it was still nice. We had problems with the drain on our 2nd and 3rd night. It was flooding after we showered. The water would subside after a while but it was still wet all over the bathroom floor. We told the front desk twice about it. They said they were sending someone the following day to look into it but it was still flooding. So, we felt ignored. Whatever. It wasn’t that big of a deal to us.
The location was really nice since you can take either the JR train or the subway line. Both are accessible from this hotel. The price we paid for a double room 6000 yen for each night or approximately 2500 pesos. Breakfast not included. It is such a good deal for Tokyo.
I also saw some capsule beds on the ground floor of the hotel when i used the bathroom but I think they only allow men to rent them out. There are restaurants close by and a Lawson combini which we love. We would always drop by the Lawson combini to buy snacks before heading to our hotel.
For the price and the location, I would stay in this hotel again. I just hope that they improve the service. I raved about Japanese Customer Service but this hotel was an exception. It seems like they didn’t care much.
