    Smoking smells.
    It was good stay one night. Only one point I want to say about towls. Bath towls are smelled with cigarette even if this is non smoking hotel. Was someone smoking at bath room?

    Room very small
    Room very small for 2 person. Even though bed is very big, but no space can walk and put luggage
    Zoman, my11 night trip with friends
    Very Good 8.0
    Room was modern and clean although a bit small for two people. The lights/television turns on when inserting the key card into the card holder and turns off when removing. The bathroom has a vent but lacks an exhaust fan to adequately evacuate unpleasant smells. The bed is big and comfortable but the pillows are really hard. Service was very good as they provide new towels, robes for spa, and toiletries every day. Our room didnt have a closet, only a coat rack with a few hangers. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would consider APA again in future trips

    Terrific place
    Spotless, extremely good location with Ikebukuro station a 20 minutes walk away which is a busy hub itself. The staff is extremely polite and informative which is a plus on top of the already excellent room amenities they have

    Enjoyable experience
    The hotel has a convenient location near Ikebukuro, accessible via public transport and parking is easy to find. Room is furbished, clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and some can speak foreign languages. There is an onsen in the top floor, opened till 2AM so there is plenty of time to try out even you come back to hotel late. The only downside is that daytime parking is expensive in the area and the guest rates are no exception.
