I lived in Takadanobaba with my brother from 2008 to 2009. I made some really good friends and contacts there and fell in love with the neighborhood. I go back once a year to visit and I was so happy to find this place. The staff is very nice, helpful and accommodating. The facilities are very well kept, and the place is very clean. For myself, the location is perfect. Couldn't possibly be better. For the average Tokyo tourist, the location is still great! Takadanobaba Station is 2 minutes away. The Yamanote line is Tokyo's main loop line, then you have the Tozai subway line and the Seibu Shinjuku line which takes you out to Saitama. Takadanobaba is a wonderful neighborhood and is only a 4 or 5 minutes away from major Tokyo stations like Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, ect. I would highly recommend the Astro Station as a place to stay. I'm not even into Anime myself, but for those that are, I'm sure the place will be even better! Thank you to the staff for all their help!
