Tokyu Stay Tsukiji3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Just in the outskirts of Tsukiji market. Great location for exploring the great food at the market. The food stands starts literally just outside the hotel entrance. Room were very practical and the bed was nice. Very nice with coffee machine in the lobby. I will definitely stay here again
Like in most Tokyo hotels the room was minute, but with lots of amenities packed in, including a full-size washing machine and drier ( a small packet of washing powder is given for free at check-in), a microwave, trouser press, kettle, hair dryer, etc. The desk was designed to accommodate two people although it was, to say the least, compact. The Japanese are adept at getting the most out of tiny spaces. The bed was lovely and comfortable, but the duvet was a bit short. There were two pillow types including one with beads inside that were really rather therapeutic. The one aspect of the room I did not like was the dark coloured, badly stained carpet, which I felt was dirty. Slippers were provided, but they were not single use, so I would not use them. In any case, they fit Japanese, not Western feet. The staff were helpful, but were very limited in their understanding of English. Breakfast was served at a restaurant at the other end of the block, but a map was provided and so it was easy to find. There was no breakfast buffet and the options from the limited set menu for hotel guests was weird. I had pancakes with salad, complete with salad dressing and syrup, which do not mix at all well. Also, the juices were concentrates that were over-sweet and tasted nothing like their descriptions. We had hoped to be near to the world-famous Tsukiji fish market, so were delighted to step out of the hotel and to find that we were right in the centre of it.
Location: about 3 minutes from Tsukiji station and 5 minutes from Tsukijishijo station. Walk outside and you are in the midst of Tsukiji Outer Market--good for sushi restaurants, street food and all sorts of food and cookware related shops. It's also a reasonable walk to Ginza, about 10-15 minutes. Remember this property used to be "Tokyu Stay Ginza" until the group opened another property at Higashi-Ginza. Common area/reception: functional and nothing special, but free coffee is available. Front desk service is good--as expected in Japan. Room: I stayed at the 18m2 Residential Double as I always avoid semi-doubles. The room shows a bit of age with stained carpets, wallpaper and some nicks on the wall. It's not in bad condition though. As in all Tokyu Stay, there is a washer/dryer in the room so it's very convenient for a trip lasting more than a few days. Free detergent is provided by the front desk. The bathroom is decent sized but lacks a bit of counter space. Water pressure is actually too strong! The negative part is the cleanliness of the room. Upon check-in, I find a bathroom floor that has a few hairs so the vacuuming isn't done well. I almost never see this in a Japanese hotel. Also, the hotel does not clean your room daily though fresh towels are provided. The pillows are also too low and soft for my liking. TV does have CNN for English viewers. Overall, the property has a good location. Facilities might need to be refreshed soon. The cost is very reasonable though even on weekends. Finally, for those interested in heading to the new Toyosu Market, cross the street, turn right and walk about 3 minutes to the bus stop Tsukiji 6-Chome. The Toei bus "市01" (literally, "City-01") takes you to the Toyusu Market in 15 minutes or so. Get off at the last stop. Buses run frequently until 10am. The same bus terminates at Shimbashi in the other direction. It's faster and cheaper than taking the subway + Yurikamome.
Haven't been here for 3 years but remembered that it was ideal and at a very fair price. It is exactly the same. It is located IN (not near) the Tsukiji outer market area, the vigorous remnant of the former fish market that has now located to a sterile area about 2 kms away. Yet it is quiet. But the outer market is just lovely and food starts at 6 a.m.. This hotel is classic Japanese. Small room but immaculately clean with microwave, washer/dryer combo unit, everything in the bathroom you could possibly need, cumfy bed, slippers for the room, slippers for the bathroom, desk, really good WIFI. Perfect location and easy access to a number of subway lines. The most reasonably priced and freshest fish in the city is at your feet! The staff are super responsive and allow storage of luggage without complaint. No free breakfast but that's a bonus in a city of 28 million with wonderful food. You wouldn't want to waste a meal on a complementary breakfast! Unreserved recommendation.
My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights. It's literally in the Tsukiji Fish Market area. Check in was fast & easy. Room size is small just like any other average hotel in Tokyo & clean. Easy 10 min walk to Ginza. Would stay here again if we're looking to stay in the Tsukiji area.
Was looking for a hotel near Tsukiji Fish Market to go for one last tuna auction before they finally move to the new location, and landed on this hotel for its location, price, and that I've stayed at other locations from this chain before. The hotel is easy to locate, across from Tsukiji Hongwanji and there's a big red fish mural on the side of the building. Room: Would say slightly bigger by local standards - there is a washer/dryer in the room (which would be handy if you're staying for more than a few days) and there's the standard minimal storage spaces but enough for your travel needs if you're willing to spread it around and get a little creative too. Bathroom is also standard issue with good water pressure. While the room itself has basically no exterior views (opens into interior building space) the good thing is also that there's no noise from the streets. Bed is comfortable and everything is very clean, as one would expect. Location: One of the primary reasons for choosing this hotel is because it is less than 10min walk from the information centre/building to line up for tuna auction. At that hour (4am) there is no public transportation so if you're staying in a hotel that's not closeby your only option would be taxi (expensive) or walk (long). As it is located in the Outer Tsukiji Market area/block, you have no shortage of restaurants within a 5min walk. If you rather take the subway, Tsukiji Station (Hibiya line) is 5min walk, Higashi-ginza station (Asakusa line) is 10min walk, or 20min walk to Shimbashi station for JR. Excellent location! Intangibles: While the inner market (and tuna auction) will move out of this area in Oct 2018, the popular outer market will remain (is my understanding), so the appeal and positives of this hotel should remain as well.
Having visited Tokyo once before, we knew we wanted to stay as close to Tsukiji Market as possible to take advantage of the amazing sushi (Daiwa), food, and shopping nearby. Tokyu Stay did not disappoint! Although our room was tight, it was comfortable. For the price, the impressive range of amenities was on point: we particularly appreciated the in-room fridge, microwave, and washer and dryer, as well as the free tea, coffee, and breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Service was also excellent. The friendly staff graciously helped with several issues, including promptly sending someone to our room when we had a question about our washer. If visiting Tsukiji Market is a priority (and it should be!), we highly recommend this hotel for your next Tokyo stay.

Location to Tsukiji market is perfect. Walk out of the hotel door, turn right, walk several steps, and you'll be in the middle of the vendors selling everything from seafood, sweets, ramen, sushi, pickles, knives, etc. I had a nonsmoking "moderate" size room on the 8th floor. The room contained a 31.5" flat screen tv with mostly Japanese programs. CNN is in English. There is a mini fridge that is 12" wide and 14" high. I could fit several drinks, a sandwich, and a small salad in there. There is a desk which is 29" away from the bed. A rolling chair fits under the desk, but it is better to turn the chair sideways facing the tv so you can stretch your legs. The bed was about 55.5" wide. The room size is typical of other Japanese hotel rooms (ie small). The hall is 36" wide. The room also has a trouser press, a humidifier, a folding luggage stand, a washer/dryer combo unit, microwave, and a/c unit. With the suitcase on the stand, it was difficult to open the bathroom door all the way. The trouser press is folded up against the wall, but the metal legs will hook your pants as you walk by if your suitcase is too close to it. The hall is short so putting the suitcase closer to the door will impede your entry and exit from the room. The a/c did an adequate job of cooling the room all night. The room was quiet and outside noise was barely noticeable. The reception employees answered questions about the metro, the washer, transportation to the airport, they helped us figure out the LINE messaging app, and even mailed a parcel to a different part of Japan and they did all of it in a polite, respectful, and prompt manner. Note: The washer also dries the clothes in the same unit. The washer door will remain locked until the machine cools down after the drying cycle (safety feature). There are mini sized toothpaste and hairbrushes by the elevator as well as free teabags. The lobby was always clean and there is free coffee for the guests. The lobby has a machine for ice and you can buy beverages from another vending machine. Note: the room is not cleaned everyday if you stay longer than 7 days. Hang the bath towels on the shower rod to dry. It wasn't a problem for me. The nearest subway station is the Tsukiji Station by the Tsukiji Hongangji temple (about a 4 min. walk). It made for a good landmark reference when coming or going to the hotel. A Starbucks is across the street from the Honganji subway entrance. Hoshino Coffee is across the street from the Tsukiji market (heading in the direction of the Ginza) and serves good coffee. Walking to the Ginza is a 15-20 min. walk up the street. It is really easy to get to. A Jonathan's restaurant and a Lawson convenience store is around the corner from the hotel (3 min walk). The best part of the hotel is the location. I could try something different every morning from different Tsukiji vendors. I could also buy souvenirs from the vendors and put them back in my room before setting off to explore another part of Tokyo.
Clean and reasonably priced accommodations which is very well situated for you to explore the Tsukiji fish market. The hotel is located just next to the outer market and outside of the inner market where the famous 'Tuna auction' and renown sushi restaurant (sushi dai, sushi daiwa, etc) with the infamous long queues reside. If you want to have a 'leg up' on others to queue up for a meal at the restaurants, staying at this hotel is a good start!
