Hotel review: The B Roppongi

In 2019, I stayed at multiple hotels on my trip to Japan with my friends. This is a quick review of the first hotel we stayed in when we first arrived in Roppongi, the B Roppongi.

Note: Per their website, the B Roppongi is no longer a hotel in Roppongi. Instead, it is now named Comfort Inn. It has a new name but is still the same hotel (same location, etc.) so the review should be able to give you some kind of insight about this hotel.

We didn’t think to take a lot of pictures of this hotel, but did get this one of the fancy shower that allows you to test the water with your foot before turning on one of the never ending selections. US doesn’t have that!

Let’s start with the building itself. The hotel is right on Roppongi-dori, which puts it right in a great place for transportation (shuttles can find it easily) and near Roppongi-dori (right next to Roppongi Station) The hotel is clean, modern, and very nice. The staff was very kind, spoke incredible English, and were able to help us with a late check out for the trip. They were just incredible and made the start to the 2019 trip amazing. They even offered to help us flag down a cab before heading to Tokyo Station one morning. They just went above and beyond to help a few foreign travelers.

The room we had included two standard twin beds, so we had more room than your standard hotel room (had two people staying in the room so we needed the space, but you will pay more for this kind of room). The room was clean, very modern, and the bathroom was very nice (we had a Western rainfall shower, it was amazing). The beds were solid and pillows felt great (at least to me). The hotel overall was well kept and again, the staff was super friendly and just nice to greet each time we came and went from the hotel.

The area itself is Roppongi, not in the middle of the clubs, yet close enough to the Oedo and Hibiya Lines which are super convenient to use on a daily basis. There are a ton of restaurants around the area along with a Family Mart right down the road, so plenty of options for food and drink, no matter your budget. We would often stop at the Family Mart each evening like I did back in 2017, stock up for the night and next morning, making it super easy. It is also in walking distance to the Mori Hills area, so there is always a place to eat or drink right outside the door.

Overall it is a great hotel, a good location, and is easy on the wallet for the traveler who is looking for a good spot and wants to enjoy what Tokyo has to offer. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a nice, budget friendly hotel but doesn’t want to stay in a hostel or capsule. This place is simply perfect.
