Location, price and cleanliness.

The cleaning staff were very good and the hotel itself is located in an excellent area of Tokyo. As a solo traveller I really enjoyed the convenience of Hotel Newstar Ikebukuro, being a short walk from Ikebukuro station. The area also has many establishments which operate till very late, making it an especially good choice for those who like to stay out late.

Good hotel for the budget traveler”

This hotel provided all the basic amenities for a budget traveler that wants a single room with its own bathroom for the night at a good price. I paid less than $50 a night for my 6 night stay. Conveniently located near Ikebukuro Station, about 5 blocks away. They have a back door that takes you easily to Ikebukuro metro station. They offer a breakfast for a price but it was easier for me to just pick something up from the local stores nearby. There is a Lawsons Market next door, a Family Mart across the street and numerous eateries in the area and near Ikebukuro station. No real amenities and you just get a 8' x 12' room with it's own bathroom, which was all I needed for my stay in Tokyo. My non smoking room didn't have any smoke smell problems but I did notice some smoke smell when I opened up the window. The room had air conditioning (building a/c) but I never used it as the weather wasn't very warm. The staff were helpful and understood English fairly well.

Nice Location, Friendly Staff, Standard environment”

It takes around 5-8 mins walk to the nearest exit of the JR station, which is very favorable. And it is very near to the crowded area of Ikebukuro, which means there are a lots of restaurant that is nice for handing out and also open till midnight. The staffs are nice and really helpful, they've been really nice to us that they even helped to heat the food with microwave which I got from Familymart nearby (yes, there is two convenient store nearby the hotel and another one on the other side of the road) which he didn't have to so. The position is easy to find also. Overall I will be staying in this hotel in the future. Strongly recommended.

It was the most comfortable stay I had in Tokyo. The room was big enough for a solo traveler, room was kept so clean and neat everyday. Flat screen tv was adjustable for watching in bed. The staff at the reception are all really helpful and caring. Once, the lady staff even advised me to drink more water as it was going to be a hot day! Superb service and much more personal than many big hotels. I love it and will stay here the next time i come to Tokyo.

I can open a 28" luggage & a hand carry luggage at the same time. Toilet is the only area that makes me feel a little bit small good location - 7~10 mins from JR ikebukuro West exit, many restaurant nearby and 7-11 & Family Mart & Family Mart 100yen Store are just next to hotel average clearance - I forgot if I booked a non-smoking room or smoking room, but the cigarette smell is very strong. The wallpaper looks quite dirty & old, especially when the light is too dark & yellow. But the bed & toilet look new & clean, and the staff had kept the floor & shower area clean & comfortable. Therefore, overall the clearance of room is average.
