In case you have to attend a convention or a seminar in the Makuhari Messe area, this is a good place to stay. Neat and clean rooms, very good view of the Tokyo Bay. It is also pretty close to the Makuhari Railway station and the Mitsui outlets where there are plenty of factory outlets of leading brands. There are plenty of food outlets too in these areas. In all a good option.
The hotel was huge and had 2 convenience stores and several restaurants and a coffee shop. It is so far from Tokyo centre that you would only stay here if you were going to Disney Resort or the baseball. There is a fashion outlet near the station (about a 10 min walk, for which a shuttle also goes from the hotel) The room was a reasonable size for Japan but we had 3 in it so a little cramped. There are also a number of restaurants also close to the station. The airport shuttles for both airports come right to the hotel which is very handy. It was really not very well maintained and we paid about $27 for 3 small cups of not very good coffee at the coffee shop. An absolute rip off. Only stay here if you have to be out that way for a reason, its not for the tourist wanting to see Tokyo
Room is spacious and bed is very comfortable to sleep in. Love the Onsen in the hotel, 3 to choose from. As the hotel is close to the Makuhari Outlet stores, there is a free shuttle service to the train station. Plenty of shopping next to the train station. There is the Nike outlet store. Airport shuttle bus is also in front of the hotel. Very convenient. There are chemist store and 2 convenient stores in the hotel.
I am a very frequent traveller around Asia Pacific. I am an English speaker and was surprised that there was no English on the TV over 20-30 channels. I asked the reception and they informed me I could change wings to get English. This did not suit so I asked could I watch a movie the answer was yes. I then settled in to my bed and started to try and watch a movie. I was shocked and very annoyed as I needed a code to watch a movie that needed to be pre purchased out side the room. This is not OK. I am here for two more days in Rm 4310 but never again. I travel monthly to Japan so a small loss..
LOVED my stay here & was happy to have enough time to properly enjoy the hotel facilities. I had a lovely, cozy room in the newer East Wing with a view of the pool & further out, into the bay. The hotel is like a small city in itself, with a variety of shops and convenience stores on two levels. The room was nicely equipped with everything I needed including hotel robe and slippers. There are variety of restaurants to suit any whim, an outdoor pool and best of all, Japanese public baths (called Sentõ, or Onsen if fed by a natural hot spring), segregated by gender. The baths absolutely elevated my experience & I enjoyed a round of bathing every night before bed, immensely! I will say that a sign outside the baths mentioned "tattoos prohibited", but my 3 very small tattoos are easily hidden by the hair hanging down my back & honestly, there was no one monitoring the ladies' bathhouse, to my observation. I understand this custom has to do with preventing intimidation by tattooed mafia. I look WAY more like a foreigner/tourist than like a Japanese mobster, so I figured better to ask forgiveness, than permission. No one scrutinized me closely as all the guests went on about their business. Do read up on the bathing customs generally, though. You always experience this nude, only & it is customary to shower after every pool you leave, before entering a new one. You can bring your own bathing products or use the ones supplied. So now that you'll be sure not to skip the bathing experience - I fully recommend including breakfast with your room, as well. It was a great buffet style with nice selections & I love being able to have as many cappuccinos as I want. Worthwhile & you can generally get a table looking out over the pool! I was very impressed and happy with this choice. Clearly a lot of Tokyo Disney goers chose this hotel as well. They were adorable in their matching outfits every morning! It's a very short walk to the metro & a comfortable ride into Tokyo. For arrival/departure, there is a bus that serves the airports & it stops right outside the hotel. Great convenience, great amenities great price. Would definitely stay again!
I was given west wing 5th floor room which was quite small. bathroom was much smaller & the commode was not clean. When I sat on the toilet my knees were almost touching the toilet wall. that was quite awful.Bath tub was right next to it & after a shower the whole bathroom fool is wet. Breakfast - continental western type breakfast on the ground floor & rooftop restaurant. If you are looking for a change go ask for bf tokens in the 2nd floor sushi restaurant which is quite different & has a better variety. Lawsons convenience store is on the ground floor & 1st floor so water/food can be bought within 2 mins. stayed for 6 days & was given water only for 3 days. Stunning pool but empty coz they charge for the pool. Close to the Marines stadium, bus stand, train station, Makuhari Messe - so a very convenient location. lots of SHOPPING around.
Best and Cheapest Hotel we stayed in for our week in Japan for 13000 yen two adults INCLUDING breakfast! peak hoilday time in August. Free Shuttle to trains. Free Wifi. Free Onsen. Room size average to larger than others! Amazing traditional onsen west wing, we stayed in central tower. Breakfast was great lots of options. Apparently this used to be a very expensive hotel but they couldn't make ends meet so APA purchased and now its super busy. There was a Baseball game on while we were there in Stadium nearby it was very busy time but we didnt feel it was full and busy. Really Nice stay , we will be back! We saw Families there but did not have our children with us on this trip.
Mostly ppl come to enjoy the spa at 4th floor. There are few restaurants and shops available there. It's near the Disneyland , just few stops from the makuhari JR station which is around 10-15 walk from the hotel. The makuhari JR station is very near to the premium outlet. And many restaurants are available near the outlet. U also can take the shuttle bus to Aeon shopping centre and Costco just 100 yen per person from the JR station which is nearby the bus station too. But if u want go to town, it's quite confusing and quite far too. Need to take JR and then change to subway. The room is quite small and the pillows are too thin. Toiletries are available.
what I love in this hotel is their public bath.aside from west wing, there is also a bigger bath for women only in the east wing.This hotel are choices of almost foreigners or tourists.aside from its low price, a choice for travellers who wants to visit in disneyland.I can see all the Apa Hotels have the same bed designs and small space.What I dont know is the difference from west wing twin bed and east wing deluxe twin bed.I reserved two rooms.Different price but the same size and room space.Where and what the hell is deluxe? lol! Also, about the pool price....I payed 7500¥ for 2 adults(2000¥each),child 6yrs old(2000¥) and 3yrs old for 1500¥???? I payed even it was raining and the pool was so so cold.few customers that day.what made me felt a little disgusted was, when my nephew who is 7 yrs old, came into the pool, sent by my japanese brother in law, just payed ¥1150! Crazy! they knew few customers will enter into the pool because the weather is not good but they shouldnt over value some customers especially the kids and foreigners! That was aug.15,2017.well, they smile...friendly?! Maybe yes or hima dake?
We had intended to use the public baths and massage salon for a relaxation break, but found our (small, western) tattoos excluded us from the onsen (not mentioned in pre-trip facilities information), and massage salon was closed by the time we arrived at 8 pm so we could not book. Disappointing. Dramatic views of night time Chiba from tower (we were on 34th of 50 stories), like being in the movie Blade Runner. Room compact but stylish, clean and comfortable. Convenience stores on site, clothing outlet stores close by. Great location for music festival in neighbouring conference facility, but can't see any other reason to stay here other than for an event. Information leaflets and TV all in Japanese, very little English in room. Automatic check in system very clumsy and had to be assisted by staff. It also signed us up for an APA hotel card we did not select and did not want.
