I stayed for three nights and it was much better than I expected. It's just right next to Musashisakai station. Surrounding area has everything you need. A huge supermarket, bookstore, restaurants.
Quiet and safe! The elevator is secured with room key card. You have two restaurants choice for your breakfast. Not too far from Kichijoji and you also can go to Tokyo, Shinjuku and Nakano stations straight by Chuo Line.
During the cherry blossom season, you can take a bus to International Christian University and Nogawa park area for picnic. It will be lesser stress than going Ueno park. For the hotel, I have no complaints at all. You might think it's far from the central Tokyo area, but much less expensive staying in Shinjuku and totally worth it. Of course the area is not touristy at all, but great place you can feel a bit taste of living in normal Japanese life. Thumb up recommend-hotel in Tokyo!
