The best and the worst thing: near the station
Reviewed 11 November, 2019
I picked this hotel purely because of the location and the price. Right next to the Nippori station. You'll have to find the right door and go to 3rd floor by elevator to reach the reception. Staff was nice and tried their best to communicate, even though their English was not good. I got to leave my luggage there supervised for a couple of hours, as I arrived before I could get to my room.
I got a smoking room (I don't smoke inside but didn't have a choice about the room when booking via a third party) and the smell was horrible, but I knew beforehand that would be the case, and fortunately there was fabric freshening spray which really helped. I didn't expect best quality when I didn't pay a whole lot, and I think I got what I paid for. A safe, clean place to rest between exploring the city. The room had basic cleanliness, but clearly everything was somewhat old and a bit worn out.
There were nice restaurants near this hotel, and the Yanaka Ginza street, old cemetary and Fabric town are just a couple of steps away. The best thing about this hotel is the location next to the station. The Yamanote line stops in Nippori and takes you for example to Ueno, Tokyo station, Shibuya and Harajuku quickly.
Unfortunately the best thing about the hotel was also the worst. My room's window was facing the station (no view whatsoever, just a grey wall) and I could clearly hear all the noises. The trains don't bother me one bit, but all the other noise, such as announcements, jingles (yes... the trains have jingles) and warning tones were super loud and disruptive. It went on until 12 at night and started again at 5 am. I had ear plugs with me but didn't sleep too well with them, because I usually don't wear them at night. But to be able to get some sleep they were absolutely necessary. So bring them if you're staying in this hotel and I really mean it.
Overall, not a stylish place, but functional. Wouldn't stay here again though, because of the station being so loud.

Good Location Hotel

The location of this hotel is quite strategic because it is very near with Nippori Station (station for JR train and Narita Skyliner), so it will be easier if you want to explore Tokyo by train. The room is not too big (typical room in Tokyo) but clean and comfort enough. Check in and check out process also simple and fast. And near hotel there are some restaurant and convenience store that provide your basic needs. Overall good stay at Hotel Sunny.
Good budget hotel with excellent location

This hotel is about location. It’s situated steps from Nippori station with direct access to Narita airport. Plus it’s accessible to anywhere in Japan since it’s next to the JR Nippori station. The room is average, wifi excellent with basic things like shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, toothpaste n toothbrush. And there is a good tempura restaurant just next to it. Other shops like a pharmaceutical store, Mac, cafes n small supermarket. What you need, you can get it conveniently. Definitely worth staying. Take North gate, east exit when at Nippori. Then take the escalator down n voila! The hotel is there on your right.
Old hotel but it has everything u need

Surprisingly, the room is quite spacious. We booked twin room n it came with two super single beds. The location is very convenient. Just steps next to Nippori station on JR Yamanote line. There r trains direct to Narita. When u reach Nippori, take North gate n look for East exit. U can take the escalator or lift so luggage no issue. Once out of escalator, turn right n Hotel Sunny is few steps away! There is also a drug store right downstairs, cafe, tempura restaurant, macdonalds n so on. V good location. Enjoyed our stay v much.
