Great experience! Loved it! Was able to get around very easily.
Staff were great here along with a suitable room for business travel in Japan. Rooms are small but well equipped. I found the staff to be kinder than most hotels I've stayed at in Japan. A big plus for that. Honestly they were great. Location is about 5-10 minutes walk to the station. During the morning the elevators are at a standstill due to having breakfast facility on 25th floor and also downstairs. It can be literally impossible to get on any of the 8 elevators. Protip there's a freight elevator in the stairwell, use that in a pinch. The exit stairs seem to be emergency only which could have been better used to keep people off the elevators. Awesome view from the morning breakfast spot though and a nice drink there in evening. Overall the elevator issue wasn't that big a deal but could see many people frustrated by it. I would stay here again although it wouldn't be my first choice it is a good choice.
This is a good location for every activity within Tokyo. A tour bus to Mt. Fuji is walking distance. Major airport shuttles drop you off at the hotel.
I chose this hotel just because many Tokyo day tours depart from this hotel, so I don't need to worry about getting to another hotel to meet for early departure. I read from reviews and knew the room would be small, but it's even smaller than imagined (taking into account I did not book the smallest room available). - The bathroom is worse than those on cruise ships in terms of size. The floor of the bathroom is raise quite a bit, probably hiding drainage system underneath as there's a foul smell when stepping inside. The bath tub was too small to soak in, I'd rather they replace that with a walk-in shower instead. Part of the sink is placed on top of the bath tub to save space. There isn't sufficient hanging space inside the bathroom. - There isn't a closet, you have to hang your clothes on 2 big hooks (accommodating 4 hangers only) behind the door area. - We got the non-smoking room we requested but there's a strong smell of smoke inside the room. - No matter we turned on or off the air conditioner the room is still hot and stuffy. They have an air purifier which didn't help much. We woke up in sweat several times a night. - The hotel is quite far away from Shinjuku Station - around 15min walk and longer if you have luggage. - The inside and outside of this hotel look quite worn out and dark, more like a cheap basic youth hostel than a hotel. This hotel is only suitable for group tours in which the travellers have no choice on hotel, or poor business travellers.
Like very much. Great stuff always helpful and friendly
Great location. The Tokyo Metropolitan Gov't Bldg with observatory decks is across the street so I was able to get a great view of Tokyo during the day and at night. Very small room. Tight space, no closet. For this Japanese standard tight and small room, you can only have 1 luggage, the size 24" at the most. I asked for a room with a view which was great but the window was very small. This hotel cannot provide bottled water more than two in a day. This is the only hotel I been in where they cannot replenish complimentary water.
the room is small but has everything. You have to open and store your luggage under the bed if you have a big one. The location is perfect. Recommend to take a walk to the gov. center tower right in front of the hotel, take the free view on top, in the evening or night, you'll be surprise. Nice hotel and will definitely stay here next time.
Staff pleasant, location ok, not super convenient nor close to train stations as it is in middle of business area. Hotel itself was decent, but we were unhappy with the lack of attention to cleanliness in our room. One of 3 beds appeared to not have been changed out with clean sheets. We found hairs between the sheets and in the pillows. Also one of the pillows had a shoe print on it! I will add, however that the front desk rectified the situation promptly by sending someone up to change out the sheets, however by then it was hard to shake that first impression. The bathroom appeared clean but it had a bad stench like that of a smelly public bathroom. I felt like we just tolerated it because we were there for just one night but it wasn't very pleasant.
