The hotel is very well located The interior of my room was quite old. The desk varnish was gone and the room was pretty smelly.
Very good location in the center of Shinjuku, about 10 minutes away from the train station and taxi service outside. Had an ATM and 7-11 attached to it. All the amenities a person could need, toothbrush, hair brush l, razor shaving cream, free bath salts for everyday I stayed. Shampoo conditioner and body wash smelled great. Shower and bath were awesome! 1rst floor breakfast was the way to go, 8th floor cafe was nice but had less variety than the other. Staff knew English, and the concierge service was great for booking and easy airport limousine back to HND airport. Very close to robot resturant and bars that are open 24 hours. Nothing!!
The view from the bar/restaurant on the top floor was outstanding! I thought the hotel was closer to Haneda Airport than it turned out to be.
Shuttle service to Disney land. Room spacious and very good cleanliness. We booked four rooms (2 families) 4-5 months prior our arrival. The room arrangement given to us 2 rooms next to each other and the other 2 in different floor level. They aware each family going to occupy 2 rooms during our booking and yet they can't arrange the other 2 rooms next to each other or at least the same floor. Eventually the other family has to take the smoking rooms in order to stay next to each other. No smiling face from the male front desk staff.
spacious...... the housekeeping did not clean up the room well..... the many thing just like candy wrapper were still in the carpet.....
Great rooms, with nice views. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Train station at the front door to the hotel. Big shopping centres next door. Far from the main areas of Tokyo (Shinjuku, Shibuya etc) roughley a 30 min train ride. There is a train station at the front door to the hotel which is very conveniant but this is not a JR station so if you have the JR pass you can not use it here.
Breakfast options are good. The South wing room bathroom had a slight sewer odor at times.
The only good thing about Keio Plaza Hotel that they have a shuttle bus line direct to Disney Resort, but need reservation 1 month earlier before the date. The front desk for check-in and check-out really really really not friendly (especially to foreigner), no smile at all and very bad in english. Very old hotel, we've paid for the premier room (recently furbished they said) but still looks old, they're only put more lighting inside the room and LED TV. Better stay at International Brand Hotel.
Location The room and the hotel are not so modern
Great location near the Shinjuku train station. Service was excellent (although perhaps average for Japan). Pillows not so comfortable - would have liked a selection of hard/soft (therefore the OK rating on comfort). Room A/C worked very well (I like to sleep in a cold room). Great view of Mt. Fuji and Tokyo government buildings. I prefer the Hyatt Regency Shinjuku when the cost is reasonable but this time it was considerably higher. Have stayed at Keio plaza about 5 times and at Hyatt about 20 times.
Comfortable and convenient. Everything is fine.
the proximity to shopping, restaurants and transport. Also liked the view from room - comfort of room - range of restaurants in hotel was great - service was friendly and prompt - felt very welcomed - especially as our knowledge of the language was limited - liked the ambience - international Cannot think of a thing we didn't like
free internet, good in-room coffee maker. Close proximity to metro, restaurants, cafes, department stores and shops
The attention to detail made the stay so much better.
High quality of service, wonderful bay view, rich variety of dining, excellent room service, staff professionalism
The bayside view was the hoghlight of the room I cannot list a thing that I didn't like
Swimming pool was great. Nothing very much.
Small but cozy room. Perfect location.
Good location in Shinjuku within walking distance of major shops, restaurants and public transportation. Hotel looks new and has nice lobby, breakfast area, and rooftop lounge. Bed was very comfy. Room is tiny but not a complete surprise in Tokyo. However, there were several small things that could have been done to make the space more useful such as more clothes hangers, a shelf over clothing rod, and towel hooks in the bath to name a few.
Price was slightly below the competition, but in retrospect, I would've gladly paid more for a much better stay. Close to 7-11 and some fun areas in Shinjuky. I've traveled to Tokyo for 3 straight years. This hotel is the worst by far. Even though it's advertised as a 4-star hotel, it is NOT a 4-star hotel. Here's what I think: Very small room, even for Tokyo standard. There were a few groups of rowdy tourists, and I can tell that the concierge was exhausted by them, and was not very friendly when she was helping me out. Even though it's in Shinjuku, location is not that good. It's right next to a bunch of love hotels and far from the main Shinjuku station. Overall, a big disappointment for me.
Extremely polite and helpful staff. Quiet location, very close to Tokyo Metro station. Wifi was expensive and had to be renewed every 24hrs.
the location is good,very clean hotel the shuttle bus services is very helpful No comlpains
it is strategically located, and its value for money is an added value. i enjoy the luxuriness of the hotel and its facilities.the staff is very helpful and courteous
The moment we arrived, we were greeted by a posh and luxurious hotel lobby. There's no doubt about it, the hotel is beautiful. The room is even more so. It is spacious, has very modern furnishing and a very unique window that is able to transform itself to look like a Japanese sliding door. The hotel shuttle to Shinjuku Station is most useful. It would be great if the hotel shuttle operates abit longer. It stops at about 9.50pm. Guests that spend late nights out would benefit if the shuttle could extend its operation hours till midnight. It would also be great if the hotel has transportation arrangemen for Tokyo Disney Resort like some Shinjuku hotels that I know.
Second time to stay there. First time was given a free upgrade (to an Executive Room) as there were no single rooms available. This time no upgrade but the room was almost as good. The most spacious rooms I've had in my trips in Japan. Good views, good for business district and short walk to main station/shops. The area is a bit of a quieter and a bit of a breather from the crowds/bright lights of the area around the main station. The bathroom could do with being refitted to be more modern and contemporary.
huge 'n not cosy
the huge comfortable bedrooms, and the excellent staff.
i like the friendly and helpful staff staff. however on the nite of 30th we came back very late and accidentally left our two strollers outside the room. when we checked the next morning the staff at the concierge was not so pleased with our explanation and sort of sternly reminding us not to repeat the same event again. but overall it was a pleasurable experience there.
Excellent, spacious & clean room, friendly and welcoming staff, excellent rates. No, I was completely happy with everything about my stay.
Restroom facility Rome Style
the location, staff efficiency,room ,view, bathroom everything was perfect,great value for money
Great location, easily accessible, excellent rooms with a gorgeous viiew
great location, excellent service/staff, very comfortable room
We loved the spacious room and the fantastic view of the city!
The view was breathtaking. Not really.
The deluxe city view room was phenomenal for a country boy like me. Room cleaning and bed making was excellent, left my extra spending money in the room and never missed a penny. Everyone was so very polite in the hotel, the view from the bar on the top floor is also not to be missed. Prices for drinks, etc. are as to be expected for this hotel, but don't miss breakfast! As American as you could want, and make sure you ask the guy with the chef hat on to make your eggs. Omelet, over easy, whatever, they will be done to perfection and delivered to your table. I loved my stay at this hotel, it was hard to come back to reality in the US. No free wifi
The welcoming and check-in at the hotel was perfect and very professional. It was also very convenient to get there from Narita airport with the bus limousine. Best location ever in Tokyo!
+Best Service (English friendly) +Best Location (5 minute walk to Shibuya Station) +Best Views +Extremely Clean & Comfortable +Luxurious +Worth the Cost of Stay
staff was very nice and helpful. the room was clean. not the best or most modern but it's the basics. nice renovated bathrooms. high floors. AIRPORT SHUTTLE IS AMAZING! the bedside tables are a bit ghetto. otherwise everything was good.
The location was excellent Limited choice of resturants and they close early
The JR Suite was amazing. Love the high floors and view of Tokyo Tower. Customer Service at the front desk was excellent. After we paid for the upgraded suite we were a lot happier. Initial room was very small and they put us on the floor with the business and fitness area so people were in and out on that floor. Room was very very small where our 2 luggage would not fit. My GF kept on bumping her elbows into the shower door and the sink as there was no space in between for her to do her hair and make up. We had to upgrade to the JR. Suite at a very high price. The JR. Suite was an excellent room. We didn't need the living room area but it was a nice adder. What we were expecting was a bedroom similar to the JR suite bedroom but never got it on the regular booking. Concierge needs to look into what he's doing more. We asked about the Robot Restaurant and see about making reservations for that Saturday Night. He booked the reservations but didn't realize that payment up front is required. When we go to the place we were turned away as it was full and everyone had paid in full prior to arrival. When I tried to explain to him I don't think he spoke English well enough to understand. I was not mad at him as we understand we are in another country with a language barrier.
Housekeeping was good Kept clean Staff were mostly helpful Quiet Near Shimbashi and Shiodome Stations Amenities were good Airport Limousine to Narita At check-in we were told we needed to pay for a separate room as my mother and my sister together with me are considered too old to fit in one room with two double beds. They said a larger room would be available that could accommodate the three of us together the next day but we would have to pay an additional 330 USD per night of stay! Our flight landed 11 pm at Haneda by the time we got to the hotel it was already almost 12:30 am, we were exhausted! Renting an additional room also costed the same amount $330. That's the option we went with for at least a day. We then booked a second room online for the subsequent 5 days for only half the price they asked us for upfront. It made little sense from a business perspective if they had let us upgrade to a one bedroom that would release them of two smaller rooms that they can charge more for. Internet is slow especially at night, can barely read the news. Air conditioning was weak in one of our rooms, I was sweating a lot.
We found the staff extemely helpful especially the guest relations desk went out of their way to be of assistance. The rooms where very comfortable. I was going to move to a cheaper hotel, but the manager organised me a fabulous rate for the extra days, so I didn't move. No
Staff was very helpful. Easy access to a lot of places walking, taxi, or train (close to shinbashi and Shiodome station). Breakfast was 25 dollars per person and did not include much. No good breakfast around. Very surprised that English proficiency of staff was not that good.
Convenient location, quiet and modern room. Free in-room lan connection. Very friendly, helpful staff. Iron only available in laundry room (so you have to bring your clothes there - no place to hang them while you iron several shirts...). I find that the room is expensive compared to the Park Hotel next door (which is more modern and larger rooms...).
Clean and modern Bed and pillows were quite hard.
Inside the airport made it very convenient. Room was good size and clean
Convenient, clean, comfortable and friendly staff.
proximity to airport no gym
It's in the Airport and the subways. No instructions on how to use the AC and Heater.
Very lttle, plastic hotel without character, expensive way of hiding from japanese culture.. See above!
hidden charges,such as table cover charges in bar on top of service charge and taxes!
Right on the subway line. great restaurants and bar. great spa beds are very firm
The Intercontinental is a major chain and had a nice entrance and the rooms were clean. The rooms were decent size -- in fact, as I understand "spacious" -- for Tokyo. 1. The Internet was intermittent and not very good. 2. The cost for the Internet was one of the priciest anywhere -- they charge 1620 yen (about US$16) per device. So, a phone and a laptop, my wife's phone and an iPad is 4 devices or $64/night. Needless to say, we did not activate internet for each device. Compare this to the Hyatt Regency Tokyo at $3/night per room (multiple devices), or free at the Kobe Sheraton, and free at the Kyoto Westin. 3. The plumbing was old, did not drain properly, had to run the cold water for a long time to get cold (rather than hot) water, and the non-Toto toilet seat was far inferior to the Toto Washlet seats in other hotels. 4. I have Acid Reflux and need to sleep with a raised head. I requested foam pillows at reservation time and again by email about 2 days before arrival. I was told they were booked and no foam pillows were available. So, don't count on any "accommodations". 5. The concierge was very helpful, BUT the lines to see the concierge were unreasonable (1/2 hour or more). Ultimately, we could only see the concierge about one-half of the times we tried.
Comfortable beds Restaurants in the hotel Close to the train station Small room Hotel smells like smoke
Excellent executive lounge, great location close to many restaurants and the Tokyo Metro is a 2 min walk away.
The design of the room was elegant and modern, and it was very comfortable to stay in.
excellent world class hotel, friendly and efficient staff, located next to subway access and within 1km of major entertainment precinct.
very convenient location; easy tour pick-up and airport bus; friendly staff crowded hotel, small room, facility a bit aging
Breakfast buffet, a seating area in our room, and a bed off the ground. We had been on great tour staying Japanese ryokans which were a treat but good to getting back to western comforts. Don't have any complaints
The ANA Intercontinental is situation on Roppongi Dori, very close to the Roppongi district's busy night life. It has a metro line within a 10 minute walking distance as well connect to both Narita and Haneda airports. The concierge service was great, helped us out with tours to Mt. Fuji as well as to a small town in Tama City where we wanted to visit our old neighbors from Thailand. She went out of her way to call the friend and coordinate pick-up from the train station.
near tokyo center. takes 60 min. to Narita. hotel staff is quick in attending to my needs.
Great Hotel and great localization. The room was perfect.
I have stayed at hotels all over the world butt he Imperial was fantastic. I have never seen such a polite and professional staff. Everything from the moment I got out of the taxi to the moment I boarded the Narita bus was handled with the utmost proficiency and friendliness. Although there are hotels that are more modern and flashier, nothing beats the Imperial. Great location as well.
This hotel was AWESOME! The service we received can't be spoken about enough. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay in Tokyo was problem free. The location is in a prime spot and our room had a great view. Highly recommended!
not only was the imperial hotel a quietly luxurious place to stay with wonderful service, staying there felt like being part of history. i believe that the original hotel was designed by frank lloyd wright and though the original is no longer standing, pieces from the destroyed hotel have been incorporated into the current lobby. it seems that an effort has been made to retain the frank lloyd wright feeling in the remake of the building. overall, a very nice experience.
Positioned near the business district, but the general area - including the Imperial Palace - are very nice. Well equipped and very modern rooms. The bathroom was enormous with entertaining shower equipment! Public areas are huge and drab in places. But we would certainly return to the Imperial.
I was only in Tokyo for two days. I have always wanted to see the City so I stayed as a long lay-over. I have traveled quite a bit and mostly stay at high end hotels. The room was amazing. It was large, clean and the bed was perfect. I think the one thing that stood out was the service. I mostly felt with the front desk manager Tetsuro Nakamura. Everyone at the hotel seemed to really appreciate their job and enjoy helping their guests. Nothing comes to mind
Location, service, pool staff
For value and room size, this hotel is the best in Tokyo of the five hotels that I've stayed in during any of my trips to Japan (2). It is right off of two subway (Suidobashi, Korakuen stns) and JR east stations and relatively close access to a third (Kasuga Stn). Note that at least Suidobashi and Korakuen Stn have elevators for those traveling with luggage. Tokyo Dome City / Meet Port provide many dining and shopping options. There is also a so-so amusement park suitable for children. I will continue to book stays at this hotel whenever I am in Tokyo. Central location in Bunkyo is away from the JR circle loop and requires some travel upon arrival at Tokyo Stn via Narita Expresses. I wasn't aware of the ease of connection from Tokyo station nor of the presence of elevators at Suidobashi stn when I first arrived, so arriving with luggage was a bit of a chore. When the Tokyo Giants are playing at home, this hotel fills up fast. Extra charge for early check-in (before 1600/400pm)
Access to everything No laundry facilities nearby
It's a uniquely beautiful hotel. There is no other with such beautiful, serene and peaceful grounds. The staff are exceptionally gracious and hospitable. It is wonderful to come back here after a busy day in very busy Tokyo. It is a short walk to a very good, family owned sushi restaurant near Edogawabashi station. The restaurants, while good, are very expensive. And there are not many options that are close. On the other hand, taxi service is convenient.
The hotel property itself is nothing short of beautiful. The rooms have great views of the city and the expansive garden which is a oasis in the middle of the sprawling Tokyo metropolis. The staff is always prompt and friendly and ready to accommodate anything you may need.
The hotel is beautifully appointed, with large rooms featuring marble bathrooms, mechanic curtains, exceptional service, and a stunning view of the gardens and pagoda. It seems that it is a wedding destination, with a storybook setting. For Tokyo, the price was a good value for the size of room and luxurious setting, the reason is the location isn't as central and train access isn't as readily available as many other luxury hotels. I was there for business travel, but this would be a suitable location for a romantic trip. It didn't bother me to walk up the hill from the subway station. But, the ten minute walk from the subway is the only negative I can identify with this hotel.
The room was large and had a good view of the bay. The hotel was not close to restaurants or shopping. Which was a problem because the hotel restaurants were quite expensive. The 'double' beds were too narrow for two people to share.
Staff is really accommodating. Shuttle bus could be more often.
This hotel is about 20-30 minutes by walking/subway from major areas like Shinjuku, Asakusa, and Ueno Park - just need to be aware when planning your stay as it can make for long days.
It was located right on the bay and we had a room with a view of the bay. It is on the outskirts of town, so not a lot going on near by.
The staff - extremely polite and helpful. Calls made to the front desk were answered promptly and items delivered within minutes. It entire experience was a total delight.
Service - before, during, and after stay. Amenities. Location. View. Breakfast buffet was a bit over priced, but, food was good. Miso was overcooked. Could have used more 'free' fridge space. Should consider being a Disney 'Good Neighbor' hotel. Many hotel patrons had to use the train system and were caught in crowds.
The club level was an additional $100 USD approximately. I thought $75 would be more appropriate for what you got. Very nice experience.
The location and room size - very nice experiece and outstanding value for the rate provided by Priceline! The view bar was non-smoking, which is not common in Japan. Many patrons greatly prefer this, but I prefer at least one bar where I can enjoy a cigar.
view, attention to detail, and service.
shuttle to closest train station. Great views of river. no
The view from the room was beautiful, I loved the bathroom window which could be made seeing through, so you could enjoy the view from the shower. No complaint, very satisfied.
The location not far from Ginza and the metro station Shimbashi/Ginza is useful. There isn't a gym. And the Internet isn't a wifi but cable. I carry an iPhone which is useless without a wifi. Breakfast selection should be changed daily.
Great location very close to main shopping area in Ginza. Room on the small side.
The design is lovely and the location can't be beat. The hotel is high up and it is great to look down on Tokyo. The pillows were uncomfortable which took away a little bit of ease of sleep.
The views from our room were good, it was nice and clean. I thought for a hotel of this standard the staff would be able to understand English a bit more, not very well situated for shopping more of a business hotel. No english Tea,
Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. None.
Friendly staff speaks English and location is very close to Train station. Love staying here when I travel to Tokyo. The pillows were very uncomfortable.
Location is very good and room is very clean as well.
My boyfriend and I stayed there for nine nights and were able to explore easily. Locations such as Akihabara, Harajuku, Meiji Shrine, Shibuya, and a lot more are a short train ride away and with the train station so close it was easy to get around. Lots of shops, restaurants, and arcades within walking distance of the hotel.
Location, Limousine Bus access, Close to train station, affordable Wi-Fi is good, not great, but free
The location of the hotel is excellence. The room is clean and relatively larger than other hotel in similar price range. No fittness center
Very convenient location. Good Cleanliness and provode good quality shower gel and shampoo. Unfriendly male front desk staff (no smiling face). We came with 2 families and 5 small kids, they were making some noise and chasing around at the lobby while we were checking in, one male staff warned us this was not appropriate. Yes, I respect the reminder but expect a more friendly approach. And I believe if the hotel allows to have children to stay in, they should anticipate how children behave. It was our first day arrival, with such unfriendly approached, it really spoilt our mood.
The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient to many sites and transportation stations. I would recommend this hotel to a friend. Rooms are a bit small but average by Japanese standards.
Location, for a couple reasons. It was close to a shopping / dining area and 5 mins away from the nearest subway station. Airport Limousine drops guests off right at the hotel's doorstep, which is a huge plus. None
The location was exceptional. Incredibly centered and in a quiet section of Ikebukuro where you could truly get anywhere in a short time. Anyone with a JR Rail Pass will really benefit if you can get a spot here. The hotel otherwise is a little smaller than what the pictures on the website allude, but its not a big deal if you are out and about travelling. The concierge and the front desk left a lot to be desired. Don't bother asking them for much help unless its something fairly simple.
Close to train station Good staff service
I like that they have bus service to and from both Tokyo airports (Haneda and Narita). This is very convenient. I also like that it's very close to the train station. Very convenient location overall and rooms are very nice and clean.
I thought the location is perfect because it was only 5 mn walk from IKuburu train station and from there you can explore the rest of the city. The view from the window was awful. My room was overlooking a lower roof that looked ughly to me. Breakfast was not provided and there was not even a coffee maker to make coffee in the morning. I thought the price was a bit expensive for that standard of a hotel. The carpet was not clean also.
Location highly convenient with train station located only minutes away. Lots of shopping in Ikebukuro. Hotel employees very accommodating and highly professional.
Excellent hotel with excellent service. Only after I had checked-out and arrived at the airport over an hour away did I realize I inadvertently left some very important items in my room. The staff at the hotel was extremely patient, kind, and went out of their way to send the items to us via their airport bus service at no cost to us. If not for housekeeping, the front desk, and guest relations coordinating the delivery and finding people that spoke our language to communicate with us, as well as the airport's helpful staff watching out for the right bus for us, we would have been lost. Special thanks to Mayumi Okuma-san. That's what I call superior service. I will always be grateful and will definitely stay at this hotel whenever I am in Tokyo. Free in-room wi-fi would have been a nice touch for the hotel because every other hotel we have stayed at in Tokyo and other major cities offer it for free, but the 500 yen per stay is still tolerable.
Very convenient location.Staff is friendly. Unfortunately no wifi (but most places in Tokyo doesnt have WIFI anyway). But it is an excellent place to stay as it is close to everything!
I t was a pleasant experience, wi th god food (too high forus when we were not on Grand Circle Tour), good bedroom and toilet, great service, and wonde rful location near Ikebukuro.
The rooms are clean, the place is fine, the service is great. They don't skip a beat. The room safe is really convenient. Here's the thing, I stay in Tokyo a few times a year. The prices here are expensive for rooms this small. As for the breakfast, it's catered to Japanese travelers with food that I really can't put down in the morning. No whole wheat bread, no espresso coffee, not enough fresh fruit.
Location...location...location...AND The staff can understand English and are always very helpful in answering queries The bedcover in the room had a some bloodstains - seems laundry is not good
Amazing customer service.
