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 hotel is very well located The interior of my room was quite old. The desk varnish was gone and the room was pretty smelly.
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.
spacious...... the housekeeping did not clean up the room well..... the many thing just like candy wrapper were still in the carpet.....
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.
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.
Comfortable and convenient. Everything is fine.
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.
free internet, good in-room coffee maker. Close proximity to metro, restaurants, cafes, department stores and shops
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.
Close to Shinjuku station. Fun restaurants nearby. Waited on average 10 minutes for elevators, which were full and stopped almost every floor. No seating in lobby. Restaurants in hotel very overpriced. Would not stay there agin.
The location was amazing but that's about it Rooms very outdated, very pretentious staff, everything that has to do with this hotel is ridiculously overpriced! We to check out one hour later than planned after a 6 night stay and they asked us to pay a fee... very disappointing
Location The room and the hotel are not so modern
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
The attention to detail made the stay so much better.
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.
High quality of service, wonderful bay view, rich variety of dining, excellent room service, staff professionalism
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.
Small but cozy room. Perfect location.
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.
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.
Great location, easily accessible, excellent rooms with a gorgeous viiew
Restroom facility Rome Style
+Best Service (English friendly) +Best Location (5 minute walk to Shibuya Station) +Best Views +Extremely Clean & Comfortable +Luxurious +Worth the Cost of Stay
great location, excellent service/staff, very comfortable room
the location, staff efficiency,room ,view, bathroom everything was perfect,great value for money
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 location was excellent Limited choice of resturants and they close early
The view was breathtaking. Not really.
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!
Excellent, spacious & clean room, friendly and welcoming staff, excellent rates. No, I was completely happy with everything about my stay.
We loved the spacious room and the fantastic view of the city!
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.
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.
Extremely polite and helpful staff. Quiet location, very close to Tokyo Metro station. Wifi was expensive and had to be renewed every 24hrs.
the huge comfortable bedrooms, and the excellent staff.
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.
the location is good,very clean hotel the shuttle bus services is very helpful No comlpains
huge 'n not cosy
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
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
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.
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...).
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.
Comfortable beds Restaurants in the hotel Close to the train station Small room Hotel smells like smoke
Right on the subway line. great restaurants and bar. great spa beds are very firm
very convenient location; easy tour pick-up and airport bus; friendly staff crowded hotel, small room, facility a bit aging
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.
hidden charges,such as table cover charges in bar on top of service charge and taxes!
Excellent executive lounge, great location close to many restaurants and the Tokyo Metro is a 2 min walk away.
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.
near tokyo center. takes 60 min. to Narita. hotel staff is quick in attending to my needs.
The design of the room was elegant and modern, and it was very comfortable to stay in.
Very lttle, plastic hotel without character, expensive way of hiding from japanese culture.. See above!
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
excellent world class hotel, friendly and efficient staff, located next to subway access and within 1km of major entertainment precinct.
proximity to airport no gym
It's in the Airport and the subways. No instructions on how to use the AC and Heater.
Inside the airport made it very convenient. Room was good size and clean
Clean and modern Bed and pillows were quite hard.
Convenient, clean, comfortable and friendly staff.
Location, service, pool staff
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
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!
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.
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.
Great Hotel and great localization. The room was perfect.
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.
First, let me start with the location. I will say it is friendly for all ages 18 and up. I include even seniors because the location really does have it all! However, it is really close and somewhat in the middle of their redlight district and Although I know this can sound problematic or even too crazy, it really isnt because all of it is kept away from the streets. You only know what the places are based on the wording of the advertisement outside such as "thai special massage." All funny though even for us as a married couple. You are only two blocks (5min walk if you are slow and not from the city like we were) from the Shinjuku train station and this was solid gold for us to get around even with our luggage because in case you have not heard, Taxis are pricey!! Another great thing about the location is the food! We are foodies and we love bargains and high end so we can try it all!!! I also do not eat fish and my husband loves his sushi and again, they have it all! From 1,000 yen lunches to nice steak dinners in which we spent up to 9,000 yen but we also ordered a couple rounds of beer and limited this kind of spending to only every other night. Other than that they have reasonable 3,000 yen dinners for two and we even had steak tacos at this rate!! As for the staff, they answered all the million questions we had even when it was reallllly busy during check in hours. They were all very patient! Our package did not include breakfast but the hotel is located in front of a family mart and across the street from a 7-11 (with an ATM) and in case you did not hear in places like reddit, some people come here for food from these places alone! We usually picked up sandwiches or hotcase items with drinks for under 1,000yen in total for two of us! And went about our day. The hotel people clean the room everyday, restock toilettries in the bathrooms daily, and leave you water bottles daily as well as fresh towels. Very very clean people and yes you might be culture shocked to learn the square footage is veryyyy small but two of us fit just fine and comfortably and come on, if you are going to japan do your research! Anywhere you stay will have the same issue with squarefootage because this country has one of the most expensive realstate value, meaning this culture often downsizes in space because larger does not neccesarily mean better. I wish there were more i could say and although I could it really means you should choose APA at Kabukichu! I have nothing I could possibly complain about. I mean wour airplane landed 6 hrs ago and I am already leaving a review.
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.
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.
Is there a star rating higher than five!? From the moment I arrived to check in after getting off of a cruise ship in Yokohama to the moment I checked out and said goodbye to the lovely staff in the lobby, I enjoyed every second of this incredible property. The views were luxurious, the rooms were definitely appointed, the club lounge and everything and anything I can need and more, and I will be racing back to Tokyo to stay here as soon as possible. I sale every luxury cruise line all over the world and this is by far the most hospitable luxurious stay I've ever experienced in my life anywhere in the world. There's absolutely nothing I would change, it was sublime! And that's coming from a New Yorker who stayed in some of the best hotels in some of the best cities across the globe and in some of the most luxury suites on the most luxurious ships on the ocean.
Access to everything No laundry facilities nearby
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)
The Palace Hotel is just that... a contemporary palace complete with impeccable finishes, art, and service. The staff could not do enough for us from carrying bags, to creating itineraries, to attending to our every need with prompt attention and happy disposition. So kind and generous and anxious to please. Food and drinks were first rate and the concierge club level lounge put it over the top with intimate lounge overlooking the city, outside lounge area with couches and city views, and beautiful and kind service managers who served food and drinks and made arrangements for us all with a warm smile. The rooms are clean contemporary yet warm and impeccable with every convenience at the touch of a button. There is art throughout the rooms and hotel that make you stop and take notice at every turn. If you are lucky enough to get a corner room as we were we enjoyed city views and over looked the Emperial Palace Gardens. The view from the bathroom and tub were breathtaking. The hotel is connected by a beautifully finished underground tunnel with shoppes and restaurants to the nearest train station. This is clearly one of the finest hotels in the world. even if you are not staying here it's worth the time to see. I travelled with my 25 year old son and although he enjoyed experiencing the best of the best, the location is a bit removed from the more active and younger areas to the west such as Shibuya, Roppongie, Harijuko and Shinjuku! if you're hanging in the high rent district you can't beat it, although I must say Harijuko has great shopping along pedestrian friendly streets! Am must see.
The Palace Hotel was top rate. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was spectacular! Good location away from the city noise and beautiful details at every turn. Very expensive dining but superb food. Definitely a 5-6 star hotel.
Rooms. Service. Price is relatively high
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,
Great location very close to main shopping area in Ginza. Room on the small side.
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.
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.
Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. None.
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.
