Small but Immaculate Rooms

Very easy to get to from the airport; the "airport limousine" goes right there. Good location for the subway and JR trains, although the neighborhood itself is a bit tacky except for the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Center. Clean, elegant, simple rooms even if a bit small...even for Japan.

Hotel Metro Politan Tokyo

Excellent location, easy to reach the metro/train and all what a visitor needs. Use the back entrance of the hotel to reach to the metropolitan mall. The limousine service from and to Haneda airport was convenient. I greatly recommend for Tokyo visitors.

A nice hotel, good location!

The staffs here can speak English. They are very nice with good service. When you ask the front desk about the surroundings, they will show you a map and teach you how to go. There are several shopping malls nearby, it is very good for shopping. The train station is also very close to the hotel, all of those are walking distance.The room is small, however, it is acceptable, you can see the view of Tokyo clearly from the room's big windows.

Unbeatable location for the price

Although we spent most of our days out and about visiting all that we could in Japan, when we came back to the hotel we found it to be a home away from home. There were complimentary robes and slippers, very comfortable beds, and a sufficient bathroom (there was a bidet for those that were daring enough). Crowne Plaza Hotel METROPOLITAN - TOKYO is located in Tokyo, in the Ikebukuro district. Ikebukuro is by far the best district that you could stay in. It was a little bit of everything to do, there are a lot of restaurants (both cheap and expensive), some of the best arcades we found, a movie theater, places to exchange money, shops, and street performers. Every night we went out in Ikebukuro we found something new to do. And the location of the hotel itself could not be any better. It is one block away from the station (not the main station, but a side entrance that is never crowded) and one block away from another hotel that has a bank that had the best exchange rate we could find. It is also surrounded by a family mart, Lawson, 711 and a sukia. It truly was the best area to stay in and no one could believe the location and quality of the hotel for the price! it truly was the best offer around.

The good, the bad, and the really ugly

We arrived at 11.oo deadly tired after the long-haul flight, but the hotel staff informed us that they couldn't check us into the room until the official earliest checkin in time 14.oo. Rooms comfortable though small, would not suit people with children or those used to lots of space.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

JR station a few step away (2 min), very helpful if you want to get around Tokyo if on JR Pass. Hotel is located in the Ikebukuro area wih lots of restaurants, cafes and other shops, good if you don't want to have your breakfast in the hotel. Tip for breakfast: Cafe Du Monde opposite the Metro/JR entrance (Metropolitan Plaza).

Japan 2010 Trip

First impression...SUGOI! (awesome) The hotel staff was very friendly, spoke English well, and always helpful. The rooms were very nice and clean. We had a beautiful view of Ikebukuro-Tokyo. The location is just a few blocks away from the Main JR train station which was very convenient. It is also in a business district so there are a lot of great restaurants and bars near by. The area is not too crowded so you dont feel "rushed" like some other towns in Tokyo.If you plan on traveling around Japan, this is the hotel to stay at!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Plan your trip in advance, get some maps for the local areas you travel. If its applicable, get the unlimited JR Rail Pass at your local Travel agent. Its about 28000 Yen (about $300 USD) but totally worth it. Especially if you ride the Shinkansen (bullet train) to various locations outside Tokyo. The pass allows unlimited train rides for the duration of the pass. For example one way on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto was approx 13500 yen. So you can do the math. Me and my fiance' got it and it was totally worth every cent!!!

Where's the transportation!

[...] When I made my reservation, I was to told to call the hotel for transportation when I reach the airport. However, I had difficulty calling them. This was a scary situation. Thankfully, they had a good transportation service to the hotels.
