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
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.
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.
Great Hotel and great localization. The room was perfect.
Staff was very discreet and kind (in a japanese way). The hotel is really well placed near a big station of metro (several lines here) 2 minutes walk away. I found a little bit miser not to give free internet access (I always find this a pity) at this price.
The breakfast buffet was delicious. There was a wide variety of superb food. The view was fantastic. The fitness center was well equipped.
Good central location for exploring the city with 4 different metro stops nearby. Nice view from the room as well as the breakfast room at the 42nd floor.
The great service and facilities. We thought the food in some of the restaurants was average for the price.
Clean room and good housekeeping. Also liked the temperature in the room. The check-in process was not good. I was very delayed for my appointment then was given a smoking room. Also,the room was very dated in its styling.
Breakfast was good
Brillant service, location and setting - surrounded in its own garden! A very short walk to train networks and city resturants down the road. Restaurants were quite expensive and as the hotel had three sections, orientation was a little difficul.t
I liked that the hotel served mainly individuals on business. The staff were extremely helpful and nice. There are some great restaurants in the hotel and a great a garden. A tour of the hotel would be great since it's such a big place. It took me until the end of the trip to figure out how to get around easier.
Staff were excellent, all spoke very good English and couldn't do enough to help. Restaurants and shops in hotel were really expensive, but there's plenty of excellent local alternatives.
the view from the top of the tower and the garden Everything inside the hotel was extremely expensive, the access to the swimming pool was not even free
not free and easy access to internet room
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 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.
This was a top notch hotel. The rooms were large and very comfortable by Tokyo standards. The staff was very good at what they do and speak great English. The location of this hotel was wonderful from my point of view. While it was for sure in a business area it was a 5 min walk #40or less#41 to Tokyo station which makes it great. The Shinkansen and the Narita stop in Tokyo station which makes for a quick trip to the hotel. If you want they will great you at your train and walk you back. The restaurant was typical of most high end hotels with good food well done but not a value in any way. In the end there are tons of nice inexpensive places within 10 min walk that cater to the worker in the area if you are looking for a little less costly fair. While they can set up tours and the like for you my single experience with that a tour of the fish market left a lot to desired. It way have just been a bad day or a bad guide so I have no idea it others will have better luck. My room was nice and quiet. The view was of a open street. Others have views of the rail station. In the end this was not a negative in my mind as I do not spend time just looking out my hotel window. In the end this was a great hotel in a great part of town if you are going to use the train. I woud come back again.
very nice hotel, not far away from the subway, a lot of little shop all around,quite a big room ,breakfast delicious and everybody so kind!!!! everything perfect!!!!
This is my second time staying at Niwa Hotel. It is very near to Suidobashi station & Tokyo dome city. Many choices of food in that area. Strongly recommend to people who is going to see concert at Tokyo Dome .
All the right things in the room. Standard rooms are small but adequate - we stayed in standard and superior (which was international standard size).
Best hotel room I've ever stayed in. Rooms were designed thoughtfully and everything made sense. Extremely clean and in an excellent location. nothing much. maybe wish the rooms were a bit bigger?
Good location. Very polite staff, good service and clean room. nothing.
Location Only had smoking room, which was not mentioned on Kayak.com. Price was higher than advertised on kayak.com
Very good location, excellent staff, great value for money ,near train station. The breakfast was excelleny
Nice, we'll run hotel. Rooms are clean and modern. Location, in between suidobashi and Jimbocho subway stops is ok but not the best area to be overall. it was hard to control the room temperature- sometimes it would be boiling even after turning heat way down.
Very nice hotel in Tokyo. Just a few minutes from Suidobashi Subway Station and JR Suidobashi Station. Really good location. Hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating. Rooms are new and clean. I had a very nice stay in Hotel Niwa. I highly recommend this hotel.
We enjoyed the neighborhood Hotel Niwa is located in. Lots of eateries and convenience stores. We also appreciated the laundry facilities and massage chairs. The staff is very friendly. I would look for a hotel that is even closer to the store best line.
The level of service was exceptional, and the overall quality of the hotel and room was superb. The facility for printing documents/making copies could be improved by having some instructions in English on the machines.
nespresso machine in the room and speeker for lap top no wifi in the room
1. The metro subway is very convenient. 2. The access of food nearby is plentiful. 3.7-11 downstairs is located at its best.
This is a really convenient location for travelers. It's directly across the street from Akasaka-mitsuke Station, lots of Japanese and non-Japanese food options and some historic sites. If you can managed to get a room on the back side of the hotel, I would recommend it. My room was so quiet. It was perfect. The hotel staff were very nice. They were able to direct me to where I needed to go when I had to buy a few things for my trip. Getting there from Narita airport was easy. I just bought a ticket on the appropriate limousine bus for 3100 yen. Yes, that's slightly more expensive than the Keisei Skyliner, but it drops you off at the front door of this hotel. It's worth the extra 600 yen to not have to carry my luggage through the train stations from where the Keisei Line drops you off. And it's way cheaper than a cab. Breakfast downstairs is quite pricey (about 2800 yen or so). Of course, it's not like you have to eat at the hotel. It's literally 4 doors down from a Tully's coffeeshop where you can have a decent breakfast and coffee for less than 700 yen.
Free upgrade to a larger room (we checked in fairly late). Late check out. Unfortunately, they only had smoking rooms.
The location is very good, subway station is just in front of the hotel, krispy Kreme just opposit I booked non smoking room , but they provided me a smoking room, whi
Convenient location, subway connection to city areas, good service and comfortable beds. Language gap with some reception staff.
Convenient location, opposite subway station, 7-11 downstair, many restaurants across the street, well- English spoken staffs, big twin beds, great bathroom facilities, esp. auto warming toilet seat. Bad wi-fi signal in rooms, uncomfortable duvet cover.
Location to shopping, Tokyo Stock Exchange, Imperial Palace, Narita Express, subways and peace and quiet due to the location of the hotel: 27-34th floors. Small rooms. Bedspread adornment had "funky stains". Breakfast was a little pricy for $30 for a buffet....but it was delish so I ate there for convenience.
The location directly across from Tokyo Station is super convenient, the rooms are clean and extremely well-appointed. Very friendly staff. I would definitely stay at the hotel again during my next visit to Tokyo.
Great location at station, very clean and quiet.
Service and good location. Room is too small.
The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The cost of the meals at the hotel was high.
the staff are absolutly helpful, very accomodating. special thanks to Mr. Nagase and Mr. Kaneko at frontdesk, they both provide execllent professional and heartfelt service. perfect location for JR shinkensan if you want to explore the other provinces with JR East Pass. since tokyo station is a huge one, a bit lost to find the nearest exit to the hotel. not enough direction inside the tokyo station.
Great Location No Gym
Convenient and clean
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were clean and operated perfectly. No Issues. The King size bed was very comfortable. Room was somewhat small. Food options in and near the hotel were limited.
I stay here quite often on trips to Tokyo, and although it's not as fancy as its non-Annex neighbour, the staff is always courteous and welcoming, the rooms spotless, and the location absolutely cannot be beat, especially for the price. The rooms are small by U.S. standards but larger than many other Tokyo-area hotels. In-room (wired) internet is fast and the hot water kettle is a great touch.
Despite the weak dollar, the price per night was reasonable for a hotel in Tokyo. The central location made it easy to get to the train station, walk to the Ginza. I was pleased to be greeted by an English speaking staff member. The room was well appointed and clean. The restaurant was okay, but their were good ones nearby. The fitness center required going outside to an adjoining building.
Great location and great value for the money. The rooms were on the small side but still very nice. All amenities were provided in our room. We had a fabulous time. Small and quaint boutique feeling hotel. Across the street from the grander Dai Ichi hotel. A convenient bus service direct from narita stops at the Dai Ichi (across the street). Definitely no complaints here! My husband and I would come back to this same property next time were in Tokyo.
The hotel is very well located - in Ginza district. Get off the Shimbasha subway station \nand the hotel is within 5 minutes walking distance. (By the way, you can take the subway from Narita airport to Shimbasha station. Airport Limousine will also drop you off near the hotel for 3000 yen.) \nThe room is of decent size - with room to plonk down your luggage (say, 2\nlarge suitcases) on the floor. \nThe staff is super-courteous, very very helpful and nice. \nThe carpet in the room, and the wall paper are another matter - the carpet is quite old, and stained. I would not call it very clean. The wallpaper was ripped in the room I stayed in. These are not deal breakers for business travel or vacation travel, but may be so for honeymooners. \nThe TV carried CNN and BBC, so I was happy.
Just short and sweet.... Excellent all around... very helpful, polite, and Friendly staff. comfortable room... a bit small, but very very nice... very comfortable bed!! Great view of the Ginza... very convienent to subway, and just walk close by. I will stay here again when I go back to Tokyo!!
Hard to say hideaway situated right on the edges of business and shopping, but we found the Dai-Ichi Hotel Annex quiet, understated and very civilized. First thing, after a tiring plane trip and train ride, there was HOT water waiting for us to make tea and our instant soups (bought at a local shop right near the hotel). We're both tall people, and found the robes and beds comfortable and more than adequate. This was my first time in Tokyo, so I'm probably overawed by the culture, but it was small touches in the way the bed was made, linens folded (and the ever present hot tea water filled each day) that really helped to make our rest time from sightseeing pleasurable and an experience. The hotel is situated a convenient short walk from Shimbashi station (also accessible from the hotel via underground passage), or a bit longer walk from Tokyo Station. Lots of small seafood and other restaurants close by under the train tracks (we had a rollicking great last dinner at a yakatori joint frequented by businessmen/women and the locals), a grocery store that sells take away food for snacks, dinners, whatever, at Shimbashi. All in all, highly recommended if you want a comfortable place to rest weary feet, clean and quiet. We did have a room on the 11th floor, which we had requested, and that was quite nice.
Excellent Location!Rooms are small (common in japan) but pretty much comfortables-!!!The Best Feature of this hotel... definitely the STAFF (especially the concergie)
I stayed here for 2.5 weeks, and will be back the next time I visit Tokyo. The staff is excellent and do speak English. The Annex is across the street from the flag ship hotel. It is very close to the Shimbashi station, and walking distance to the Shidome station. I stayed on the no-smoking, 7th floor and was pleasantly surprised to find a massage chair propped up in front of the flat screen television. This was great to relieve the soreness in my back and calf muscles after walking all over Tokyo. The rooms are small relative to those found in the states, but that was expected as the Annex caters more to business folks in town to make deals. The free internet access was a plus and a key decision to staying here as well. The lights and curtains are controlled from a panel conveniently located at bedside. Every morning, there was a copy of the English newspaper, Daily Yomimuri, attached to my door. My only complaint is that the temperature of the room could not be lowered below 18 degrees celsius, which on some nights, made it uncomfortable to sleep. Still, I enjoyed my stay here. I have no comment on the other amenities of the hotel since I was busy exploring the city. Lastly, the airport limousine bus makes a stop at the flagship hotel, across the street. Very Convenient!
