Chisun Hotel Hamamatsucho3.0 out of 5.0

This hotel is a dump. Outdated furnishings, peeling paint, uncomfortable bed, and worst of all - the a/c does not work in my room. I’m currently here, wide awake in the middle of the night, because it is too hot to sleep. Thankfully they provide a free fan, which helps slightly. Hotel is NOT close to train, station, as advertised. It’s a 15 minute walk from Hamamatsucho. The only positive thing I can think of is that I’m only here 1 night. Stay away!!
Once you get out of the lobby, the more retro aspects of this hotel start to show, and not in an intentional way. The elevator doors will close with you in them, for example. The windows in the guest rooms all have bulky shutters to screen out the noise from all of the passing trains, but the curtains underneath are dirty and get stuck easily. The air conditioning has english buttons, but doesn't work very well. You can feel every spring in the mattresses. There's also some ancient grime around some of the windows and doors. But as a place to crash, it works, and there are english speaking staff. For two nights, it was fine.
First to preface this review, I am a railfan. I booked this hotel for 2 nights for 2 reasons. 1) I knew it had view of the several train lines. 2) It was cheaper then what my company was paying for a hotel close to work so I knew they wouldn't complain when extended my stay in Japan by one day. The hotel is about a 10~15 minute walk from Hamamatsucho station. That is not bad until you are lugging a suitcase and a backpack up and down several flights of stairs to get here. The room was tiny, but pretty normal for Tokyo. The bathroom was even small by Tokyo standards. OVerall the room looked very tired. I did ask to stay on the "train" side of the hotel. My room had great views of the Shinkansen, the Tokaido, Keihen-Tohuku and Yamanote lines, and the monorail was just above my room. I was able to open the window to get better photos and to hear the trains. Once you close the windows, it does muffle the sounds. Even with the trains I probably will NOT stay here again. But it was convenient on my departure that my flight was out of Haneda which the monorail goes straight there from Hamamatsucho station.
This hotel was a bit outdated and could use a good makeover. Even though I stayed in a non-smoking room, I could tell that the room was used for a smoking room. The room was tiny and the bathroom looked tired. Location wise, walking distance to the Hamatsucho station. Very close to Tokyo Tower. I wouldn't want to stay here again. Breakfast lacked variety.
I've visited Japan 11 times in the past 10 years, and since my first visit, used this hotel as a base from which to radiate around the country. During one 9-week tour, I was a guest here five different times, for 1- to 3-night stays. The breakfast is decent, the hotel is certainly located very conveniently to the Yamanote Line's Hamamatsucho Station, but it goes beyond that - it's a five-minute walk to the harbour and water taxis to Odaiba or up-river to the Skytree, a 10-minute walk to one of my favorite gardens in all of Japan, and the same to Zojoji Shrine where I pay respects to unborn children every day I'm there. And if you've got the guts for it, you can walk about 15 minutes to the Rainbow Bridge and stride across Tokyo Bay - just don't look down! All in all, this hotel is very convenient and reasonably priced, but I agree with one other commentator, the A/C could use a serious overhaul, and the bathrooms need some updating. AND, I always get a view of the Toshiba Building and harbour, facing southeast. In spite of being deaf, and not caring about the train track side of the hotel, I like to watch the sunrise and all those people in black and white hurrying to work as I plan my day with the free coffee from the lobby. I also run every morning, between 4-5AM, and it's a very safe neighbourhood!
this room exceeded our expectations. location was great in that it was right next to the hamamatsucho train station, it was a short walk to get there, a lot of it covered. and the lawson right next door was awesome, no need to use the vending machines in the hotel unless you are REALLY lazy, which i totally understand. room looked way better than the pictures. bathroom was big by japan-standards, at least it seemed to be the biggest of our whole vacation. lobby provided lots of little amenities but don't forget your toothbrush, i did and the provided one was so puny that it was like brushing your teeth with a toothpick. lighting is well controlled by a cool little clock radion thingy above the bed, there was a dimmer light in "the bedroom" which i dug as well as little foot lighting and whatnot ... and the there is a little hall for your suitcases and junk so as not to compromise "the living room" which is super small, usually we just sat on the edge of the bed and used the desk chair as a table when eating or watching tv. only complaint was the room seemed to get pretty hot no matter what ... it was cold outside so it wasn't too bad but i would wake up super parched every morning. maybe it was all the alcohol i drank ... but the room does have a little hot pot for making tea/coffee and it has a built in humidifier setting on it which is also pretty cool, we used it a couple of nights. overall, considering how much lodging can cost in tokyo, this room was awesome, big for its size, and convenient, quiet, and safe. not the hippest area ever, but we were able to walk to bars and restaurants and a covered walkway most of the way to the trainstation makes it a no-brainer. staff was friendly and we had more dang clean towels than we could have ever needed. i would stay here again. free coffee and tea in the lobby but you gots to pay for breakfast. can't remember if they had dinner there or not but we just got food from the lawson mostly when not doing a real deal meal ... all kinds of cheap eats over there. STRONG ZERO 4 EVA
I only stayed one night here, and didn't hang out in the room much, so my impressions are limited. I got a good night's sleep although the bed was hard by Western standards. The staff was polite and helpful. Only downside is that it is quite a long walk with stairs to the station....not recommended for those of you traveling with heavy suitcases on wheels. Otherwise, if you're taking the monorail to Haneda, this is a good choice.
Hotel is located in a business district, quiet on weekends. Safe neighbourhood. 24/7 Convenience store located on the corner, and small food court with supermarket located directly opposite, Starbucks 3-5min walk. Train from Hamamatsucho Station is on the city loop (Yamanote Line) which is connected to all the major sites. Just buy a Seico card at the airport and you're on your way. It was a great stay, clean rooms, basic but perfect for budget travellors. Rooms get very warm when not operating aircon (room key operated), otherwise really positive stay. Oh and a nice touch is the free coffee's in the foyer. Internet connection was straight forward and efficient too. Plus plenty of powerpoints in room.
I stayed in this hotel now for maybe 10 times. What makes me come back every time is the convenient location (for my demands) and the good value for a moderate price. Location: The hotel is located less than 10 min walking distance from JR Hamamatsucho railway station and about 5 min from Yurikamome line, in a business district which is busy on working days and pretty "dead" on weekends. You have convenience store right around the corner and breakfast bar across the road, but for a nice restaurant, other than the hotel's italian restaurant, you better walk to Shiba Daimon area (which is not a big distance, indeed). Hotel: The rooms are very small but clean and offer all you need if you do not expect luxury. Cable bound internet connection is free and performs well. Rooms to the east side are quiet, as traffic on the streets near the hotel is very low. Unfortunately the rooms to the west side suffer from train noise, so sleeping with open windows is probably not a good idea when you have a west side room. Hotel staff is friendly and perfectly helpful. Summary: business hotel which offers good value for the price, well located for the Minato-Ku or Tokyo Bay area.
This is a typical Japanese business hotel, room is small and so is bathroom. Hardly any room to open your suitcase, also room was rather dusty and windows grimy. You can hear every noise coming from the corridor. The location is among office buildings and a less than 10minute walk to a hub railway station (2 stops to Ginza, 3 to Tokyo eki on Yamate line). Some of the staff speak good English and all are very helpful. There's a coin laundry, and internet PC (Y100/10min - very slow!), drinks vending machine and payphone on 2nd floor. Convenience store is almost next door and a McDonalds across the road from lobby. From Hamamatsucho stn take the south (minami) exit and go straight out the JR ticket gates past the JR booking centre, you'll see an area map, you'll need to take the S1 exit. The route is a covered walkway with about 2flights of stairs. I stayed in winter and found rooms warm. To sum up, IMHO if you're not expecting luxury this hotel offers very good value for a central location with excellent links to get around Tokyo and beyond.
