The Intercontinental Strings is located at Shinagawa just close to the station with all metro lines and the Shinkansen. You enter the hotel on street level but the reception is on the 26th floor. This because the hotel itself is on floor 26-31. The service and welcome was very good, friendly and correct. The lobby and lower level of the... More

This is one the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We considered our room on the 42nd floor to be spacious and luxurious. The atrium lobby takes your breath away, it is stunning. Sadly we were only here for 24 hours but enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel is easily access via the Skyway at the East Exit... More

This is an excellent hotel as the attention to detail is superb and its position next to the station (via a skywalk) is fantastic. From the unobtrusive housekeepers who use tiny trolleys that they pull into the room so no one is inconvenienced passing trolleys in the corridor to the excellent English spoken by reception and the concierge you are...

We finished a family holiday in Tokyo and after 10 days of travel really enjoyed the luxury and relaxing feel of this hotel.

We enjoyed the buffet breakfast that had... More

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. I have stayed at top business hotels in Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and Germany...and Strings is the best. The only thing better is if you can stay on the "Club Level" of this hotel. The staff are some of the best in the hotel industry.They will take good care of you.... More

Very good hotel near Shinagawa station in Tokyo, well suited for business with comfortable room and good amenities, but very expensive for the quality. Room size if average and the gym is very small. The breakfast is good quality and the finishes and the detais are very nice but probably not worth the price.

We stayed here recently at the start and the end of a 7 night holiday in Japan. The hotel is well, designed, modern and very well kept. The staff are very pleasant.

As others have mentioned, the service in Tokyo is in general, extremely kind and accommodating. No exception at this hotel. Every staff member I encountered was fantastic.

I was initially assigned a classic room. That room is not worth the five star I gave. However, due to some noise issues from the shinagawa station, I was upgraded to a king deluxe room. This room is way better than the classic one. So if you book a room at this hotel, I would recommend you to avoid classic... More
