Jimbocho’s one of those odd areas with a ton of old used book stores where a lot of poor students go to buy used books. In other words it’s kind of not the most exciting area with a lot to do although it is quite close to a couple of more exciting spots.
This Sakura Hotel in particular seemed to be trying a little bit harder than the others in the chain. It had ample amount of tourist information and cheap tours of Akihabara and a few other areas visitors might find interesting.
Unfortunately, as with all the other Sakura accommodations, the staffs don’t seem to know what they’re doing. They seemed extremely unclear what dates the accommodation would be available and when it would be full.
Sakura Hotels really need to spend more money on better staff and less on advertising.Recommended for:

This is a fine place to stay. It's clean, the staff is nice and they speak English, there's a cheap toast and coffee breakfast, and it's really close to Jimbocho Station. It's a good location if you want to walk to Akihabara electric town/"otaku" town or the Imperial Palace, and it's a direct subway train to Shibuya. However, at 6,000 yen for a single, you are dangerously close to being able to afford a business hotel somewhere in Tokyo with your own shower and toilet. If that's your dream. I've stayed in the dorm downstairs, and I can't say I want to sleep in a windowless room by a boiler on the top bunk in a room with jet-lagged girls who packed in plastic baggies and need the light on to go through those baggies any time soon. That bunk costs 3,000 yen. Still, there's book exchange, free Internet, a safe, close convenience stores and coffee shops. Plus the hotel/hostel sells beer and has a lot of flyers about what's going on in the city. This company also runs longer term individual and shared accommodation for foreigners in Tokyo, so some people end up spending a night at Sakura Hotel before starting a housing contract with Sakura House.Recommended for:

This is a nice hostel budget hotel. Jimbocho is near lots of places, especially, Akihabara, and it's a direct subway ride to Shibuya. The hotel is cheap and you can have a little breakfast and beers from many countries.
There's one shower per floor, but that is natural at the price they are asking.
If you don't want to spend so much money to stay in Tokyo, this hostel in the Jimbocho area is good. It was close to the station and easy to find.
The staff seem to know what's going on in the city, and there are lots of flyers for events like art exhibits and festivals.
