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.

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.

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.

Okay hotel but...

It was very confusing to find the hotel, met other tourists outside the Metropolitan Plaza reading a city map looking for where the hotel was. Staff excellent, room bigger than the Japanese standard, but will probably stay closer to Tokyo station to be closer to attractions in Tokyo.

Great location!

Hotel was perfectly located: walking distance to train station, great happening neighborhood, lots of restaurants/shops. Was very disappointed at the $21 fee per person for the health club, as well as the health club hours (opens at 9:30 on Sat/Sun). Was also told upon check in that the pool is only a two lane lap pool, and is also $21 person (altho may be included if u pay for the health club). Our kids were disappointed as we'd promised they could swim. Ridiculous price and they never advertised that the pool was so small.Also, wi fi is an extra charge. Again, seems cheap. Other than that, hotel was clean, hot showers, clean rooms.

The best you can get for the price if you want to enjoy Tokyo

I love the location of this hotel, it is a minute walk from the Ikebukuro station which can take you nearly anywhere in tokyo. The staff all spoke very good english and were incredibly helpful. There were only two issues I had at this hotel, it was a bit cramped. We constantly had issues walking around the room, it was just me and my wife and our luggage/shoes were always in the way due to a lack of space in the room. Secondly the shower head, which constantly pointed off to the wall, the only way I could get it to point straight was to wedge a towel in it. But back to the positive, the view from our room was marvelous. The hotel itself is very snazzy and feels a bit more upscale than the room itself did. But at the end of the day for the price this hotel cannot be beat, it is well worth every penny. Highly recommended.

There is a Metropolitan Exit from Ikebukuro Station which is a minute walk from the hotel and is the easiest/least crowded way between the station and hotel.
