This hotel is very conveniently located near the shopping mecca, the Ginza. Directly north a couple blocks is Apple's store. Across the street are Cartier, Bulgari, Tiffany's, Chanel, and many many others. There are also multilevel superstar department stores such as Mitsukoshi and Matsuya, where there are floors specifically dedicated to men and women's clothing and accessories, household gift items,...

The Solaria Nishitestsu really is an ideal base in Tokyo to explore Ginza and the rest of the city. I had requested a Twin Room on booking (even though it was our honeymoon) as I had read previous reviews stating that there was much more room in these. After spying some double rooms in our corridor, I was pleased to... More

Loved the location in the Ginza District. So much was within walking distance. Unfortunately husband Jon felt unwell when we first arrived, so we needed an early check-in quickly....Gastric distress, don't you know. The staff was definitely uncooperative in dealing with this situation, not the least helpful, thus my LOW rating of service. The hotel was immaculately clean, rooms small,... More

Solaria rooms, like most hotel rooms in Tokyo, are not big, but not too cramped either and very functional. The room and the hotel itself were clean and very well maintained. Wifi was fast. Location was the best thing about Solaria. Despite being in the heart of Ginza, there is a peacefulness to the surrounding area so unlike the noisy,... More

The location of this hotel is excellent. 3 mins walk to Ginza apple store, must-try Ippudo resto and Ikinari steak beside the hotel, with lots of cute familiar shops, you will never run out of things to do around the area. The rooms are very clean and bathroom amenities are above average. Rooms are quite small but average compared to... More

This is a great functional hotel in an excellent location. The room are slightly larger than most of Japanese hotel (not that much bigger) but the bathroom is definitely larger than most of the Japanese hotel I have stayed in, given the price. Don't expect too much facilities but the location and the comfort of the room make up for... More

My husband and I liked this hotel. The rooms are not large, but very functional. Great location close to fish market and Tokyo station and Kabuki theater. Imperial palace within walking distance. Wifi a little sketchy. I would definitely return. A bargain.

Stayed twice at the Solaria , first in the standard room on the third floor, small but clean and comfortable. Free WI-FI worked great, amenities kept to minimum. Second time on the penthouse with high ceiling room, cost twice but pretty much worth on extra space, modern decorations and reasonable amenities as well as a bit of panoramic view. On... More

Given how Tokyo hotels are know for their (lack of) space, Solaria was a very pleasant surprise. Not only was my room pleasantly spacious, there was even a bathtub! Ginza isn't everyone's idea of convenience if all you're interested in is walking out of your hotel and be instantly on the busy streets of Shinjuku or Shibuya but within Ginza... More

The Solaria Hotel in Ginza was an absolute gem! Rooms may be small but the space planning was so well thought out that it could accommodate separate shower, toilet and washbasin areas! The shower/bathtub area even had a glass facade (with blinds provided for the shy ones!). The location was practically in the heart of the Ginza shopping area surrounded... More

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
