Lonely Planet review
Spotless tatami rooms are the rule at House Ikebukuro, a rather institutional, but very clean, place run by Taiwanese and catering mainly to Asian backpackers. It’s a busy, well-run establishment that’s often fully booked. All singles share bathrooms, but some doubles have private ones.
Our independent authors have visited House Ikebukuro and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Shinjuku & West Tokyo.
