Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro offers rooms with double beds (on the small side) and a kitchenette. The hotel is aimed at young couples (on the small side). As well as the rather cramped quarters, the hotel bathrooms are slightly raised from the floor of the rooms making entry and exit from the tiny unit bathroom rather tricky.
Sheets and towels are not changed nor the room cleaned during your stay but there are coin-operated washing machines available in the hotel and vacuum cleaners on hand if you fancy a spot of hoovering.
Next door to the hotel is an excellent 24-hour shokudo - a canteen-style eatery and there is a convenience store across the street. The location is good if you are visiting nearby Ikebukuro but there are better value hotels with higher standards in other parts of Tokyo.
Situated close to Otsuka Station on the JR Yamanote Line and closer still to Mukohara on the Arakawa tram line, Hotel Mystays Higashi-Ikebukuro is also a 10 minute walk from Sunshine City in Ikebukuro and a further 10 minutes from there to Ikebukuro Station.
The Mystays chain offers a variety of different hotel types across Japan including capsule hotels (MyCube) and so-called Flexistay Inns.
