Bad location with bad internet
The bed was good. I slept very well. The location is near a huge railway station and underground market. Also they will give you a bottle of water every day after bed making.
The "Ikebukuro North Area" is a dangerous area with lots of adult services and yakuza. You will never want to stay here anymore unless the dark side of the city is what you want to experience. Also, it is far from all major sightseeing spots. To save your time (and money) it is better to stay at the east side of Yamanote Line. Their internet is also bad. It has rate limit to all Google websites including YouTube, it is even not possible to use Google Maps normally. I finally set up a VPN to a Japan server and everything was fine.
A stay at APA Hotel Ikebukuro-Eki-Kitaguchi places you in the heart of Tokyo, a 2-minute drive from Nekobukuro and 7 minutes from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
