New hotel with nice amenities
Reviewed 29 January, 2020
Stayed for twelve nights in November 2019. Typical smaller hotel room common in most of Tokyo (i.e. expect to watch TV while sitting on the bed). Very nice amenities and very comfortable beds. Room was quiet. No food options but there are many restaurants/stores close to the hotel. Very close to Jimbocho station.
Nice amenities in a small hotel

This hotel was a nice mid range property in Tokyo. The location was in Jimbocho which was convenient to most places by a subway stop or two or even walking distance to the imperial palace. There were numerous reasonable restaurants in the area. As I believe most hotels in this price range are, the rooms were small and we had minimal view. However every amenity you would likely want or need was in the room.The staff were helpful as well. I would definitely consider staying here again if in Tokyo.
Great hospitality and access!

Close from Tokyo station. Subway station is 2min away.
The best thing was there are so many local foods restaurants, Ramen, Curry Rice, Tempura, izakaya... variety of local inexpensive cuisines are available.
Not only shampoo, conditioner, but also face soap, skin lotion, bath salt.
Kids amenity was available, too!!
Free wifi, free movie was also entertaining!
The facial steamer at the room was hilarious!
Always kind and friendly at the reception.
Decent English support!

The Saku Ren Jimbocho is a great little hotel to stay in Tokyo and is located very close to the Jimbocho station. There were only a few rooms to each floor and we are saw a couple of the layouts and they were both well done. There are so many gadgets in the room it makes for an interesting place to stay. The room was very clean and the internet worked well. The staff were helpful and smiling and we would definitely stay here again.
Amazing value and great service

Saku Ren delivers a great hotel experience at an amazing price for Tokyo. This is a Japanese business hotel - so the rooms are very small and there is no lobby-lounge seating area and no restaurant. Ample for single travellers, or two people who like to keep their luggage neat. The decorating motif of old Japanese books is lovely and the extra touch of being able to select a massage chair for the 'relax' room or a tatami corner for the 'Zen' room marks this out as a business hotel with some character. What you get are spotlessly clean rooms with good quality amenities, a kettle, fridge and tea and coffee -- and really obliging service. When I arrived in a typhoon of rain the front desk staff whipped out a towel to wipe down my suitcases; when I asked the cleaning staff to give me 10 minutes more before I left the room, it was no problem at all. The location is terrific - right at Jimbocho subway station just 1-2 stops from most of central Tokyo, on a main street with plenty of taxis. The street is lined with book stores, cafes and convenience stores - so you are never more than steps away from breakfast or lunch. My pro tip is Kohikan, a coffee shop chain with an excellent range of freshly brewed coffees and a breakfast set for JPY 500-650. (Same side of the street as the hotel, turn left as you exit the lobby, walk across the cross-street and you are there 3-4 mins). This is not an entertainment area, so it is quiet at night and a lot of the shops close on Sunday, so for shopping and dining you need to go further afield, but its a short taxi ride home.
