The eyes of Tokyoites light up when you mention the Hilltop Hotel. "Oh that's a good choice! Many famous Japanese writers stayed there in the past." And indeed, the hotel is like something from the past with old pieces of furniture and a charm which is hard to find in the hotels of Tokyo. In addition, the service is very... More

This hotel is located in the student town in Tokyo, and is loved by many famous writers. Since this hotel is famous for tempura, it is highly, but I recommend staying at this hotel. If you visit to this hotel, you will think that lodging expense is high, although it is old. However, if you eat tempura, you will be... More

The main building was originally a girls finishing school but then was taken over by the US occupation forces and later became a hotel. It retains many of the prewar architectural features of the prewar building and is a place with character and charm. There are some trees around and, being set on a hill back from surrounding roads, is... More

This hotel is charming, it an old (by Tokyo standards) structure, with "old-fashioned" service and amenities. It is quite different from the mainstream luxury chain hotels, providing a relaxing diversion from the frenetic rhythm of Tokyo life. It is located very conveniently, close to major subway and train stations, and surrounded by shops and restaurants, many of which are conveniently... More

It was so nice to find a hotel which has kept its original historical charm and which hadn't been overly modernised. As someone who is always disappointed by unnecessary and usually soulless updating of older hotels this hotel is a gem. We had a Japanese style room which was great and our welcome to the city was wonderful. The staff... More

I really liked this hotel. It was ideally located and the staff were super. I would have liked to rate it higher, but it needs some face lifting. The restaurants are very nice. A great steak place on the premises. I cannot say enough about the staff, everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a good... More

Located right next to Meiji University, the hotel lies in the heart of Tokyo. Nonetheless, it is very quiet and there is no traffic noise which is of great value in a city as busy as Tokyo. As all Japanese staff I have encountered, service at Hilltop was great and everybody tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible.... More

Our stay at the Hilltop was a lovely experience. The staff was warm and helpful (in spite of the fact that we spoke no Japanese and the staff had only a litte English). Our room was most comfortable. We had a marvelous dinner at one of the hotel's restaurants--great martinis, French wine, delicious steak. We hated to leave.
