Bottom Line

What we loved

  • Close location to train station, with plenty of shops nearby. The hotel is near the Ginza district which can be busy.
  • There is a 4th-floor outdoor space off the lobby.
  • Free & fast wifi (~300 mbps)
  • Large room with double sink, shower & tub
  • In-room amenities: Night clothes, robes, slippers, coffee machine, fridge, and Bluetooth speaker
  • The gym was on the small side however had adequate equipment.
  • Western breakfast was a selection of French toast, eggs benedict, or croque monsieur along with a small buffet of pastries, fruit, and freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Our 13th-floor room was near the premium lounge, however, it was not in use.
  • The hotel was very quiet. We never heard the trains at a nearby train station while in our room.
  • The hotel has both smoking & non-smoking rooms, however, I did not smell anything during our stay throughout the hotel.
  • Courteous staff. We did not have any issues during our stay, noting there was always someone available at the front desk if we had any questions.

What we did not like

  • Streaming functionality did not, TV said there was a firmware issue but did not provide a way to resolve it. Unable to stream.
  • Breakfast on both days was the same, could get boring on a longer stay.
  • The outdoor space was constantly busy during our two-night stay.

Verdict

Good Tokyo base hotel as it is close to several train stations, and many restaurants. We booked through a travel agent & enjoyed our two-night stay in our 13th (top) floor room.
