Flying solo for a week.
Room size was standard for Tokyo, that is on the small side. Hard to find, but great location once you knew where it was, easy access to everything. 2 cab drivers had a lot of difficulty, even when I showed them the map location. Very run down property. Was a great price, otherwise dont know if I would stay again.

Great location - good service
I stayed in their second hotel - Blue Empire - 3 minutes from Empire. Clean rooms hot shower microwave washing machine. Staff were friendly and helpful. Try not to get room 206 or 207 - had a connecting door which allows far too much noise in from other room otherwise all is good. Great location - train station three minute walk. Plenty of restaurants in the area as is convenient shopping - milk meals etc you cannot in your room. I would stay again
