Five star Hotel - one of the best I've stayed in

I saved this review for last from our 2 week trip in Japan. This hotel was top in all categories. Staff was amazing - bell hops were there the instant you got to the front desk and were courtious and professional beyound expectations. For 2 nights we had a tatami room which had a large room and table which was later moved and replaced with 3 futon cushions. Very nice experience. The third night later in our trip we had a western style room which was excellent. Finding the hotel can be a little tricky (seems to be consistent with most Japanese hotels). Easiest way from train station is to go toward the Metropolitan plaza and once outside take the escalator up to street level, turn left and go 1 block - hotel on corner (Across the street from a Mos burger).. This would be my first choice for future visits.

Great Location, Great Staff, Good Value

Great location, less than 5 minute walk from Ikebukuro Station AND Airport Bus runs directly to hotel from Narita (2 stops) so no searching for hotel in unknown city. Great staff, friendly with good English. Tons of medium and small restaurants in area, BIC Camera, Metropolitan Mall and Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre. Quiet area and safe, Big Police Station across the street. A little thing, but great soap and shampoo in the shower.

Fantastic!!

Best hotel service we've ever experienced. Hotel employees were friendly, welcoming, and many spoke English, which was a big help. Hotel is literally a 2 minute walk to Ikebukuro station. Dining at the hotel was great but there are also many other places to eat around it.

Excellent Location!!

I can't emphasize strongly enough how great the location of this hotel is!! It is just a couple of minutes to Ikebukuro station - a major hub for trains and subways. Right outside the hotel are numerous restaurants and two convenience stores. At Ikebukuro station there 2 huge Department stores, and within walking distance is the Sunshine City shopping area. This was my second trip to Japan. The first time I stayed in Tokyo just 2 days - this time was for 2 weeks so we could spend more time exploring the different areas of Tokyo: Akihabara, Asakusa, Harajuku, Ueno - etc. My first trip I stayed at the Tokyo Hilton in Shinjuku - and I thought that location was great - but this one was far superior, especially if you are planning on using the hotel as a base for doing some exploring of the city. Rooms with one double bed are compact, but comfortable. My daughter and I stayed in a room with two double beds, and it was what I consider to be a good size. We were on the 23rd floor, and on two clear days had the most amazing view of Mount Fuji!! Staff at the hotel were great - and helped us book day trips, and gave us directions etc. Reviews of the hotel that I read prior to going weren't glowing enough, as far as I'm concerned. I would love to return to the Metropolitan, and highly recommend it.

Check out the basement floors of the Department Stores for every kind of food imaginable. You can get baked goods, prepared foods, fruits and vegetables - if you can eat it, it can be found there. We usually ate out for one meal, and for other meals picked stuff either at the Department Stores or convenience stores. The selection and quality is unbelievable.

Great Convenient Hotel

This hotel was conveniently located across the street from the Ikebukuro train station. It was very comfortable, and reasonably priced. There are shops and restaurants downstairs, and many options for food within a few minutes' walk. I would definitely stay there again.

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!!!

Great Hotel!

I love this hotel! It's about 1 1/2 blocks away from Ikebukuro Station (where you can catch the JR train, the Tokyo Metro, etc.) It's walking distance from Sunshine City. This hotel is close by shopping areas as well. The staff @ Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo are very friendly & helpful. The Airport Limousine Bus also drops you directly to this Hotel from the airport & picks you up from there as well.
