Stayed at The Strings due to its proximity to Shinagawa JR Station, as we were arriving into Tokyo via Shinkansen. The hotel is accessible via covered walkway from the train station, via the Konan exit (a few minutes' walk). The hotel lobby is situated on Level 26 of the building, with guest rooms situated above. There is a huge atrium,... More

My wife, son and I recently stayed for 3 nights in Tokyo at the Strings. The service was impeccable from arrival to departure. Everyone was friendly and smiled and greeted you whenever they saw you. I am recovering from back surgery and walk with a cane. The minute anyone saw me they tried to help and checked us in right... More

We stayed here for business 1 night recently and had no complaints. its a standard top notch business or non-business hotel but key positive for me is the convenient location. Flying into Tokyo Narita airport, you take the Narita express to Shinagawa station (which is huge) and then a 2 minute walk thru the station to the hotel. I will... More

After camping 1 night at dull room Marriott hotel Shinagawa, we switched to The Strings. Immediately our mood was lifted by the bright colors and lightings. Especially the room. Though the room is the same size as that of Marriott, the rooms are bright and cheerful. Layout of the room is modern and efficient. You don't feel so caged up... More

I have stayed here twice and will return again this October. Perfect location right at the Shinagawa station and the shinkonsen train. Quiet, large elegant rooms. And excellent staff. Very helpful with any information you may need. And great breakfasts with stunning little baked pastries.

We stayed for 6 nights at this hotel in August 2014. What a great hotel for the price. The room was a reasonable size although the bathroom a little small but totally functional. It's located in a very convenient location right above Shinagawa Station. Was very easy to find coming off the train by following the instructions given by other... More

This hotel is frankly a bargain. The staff are fantastic. Its actually quite small occupying only a few floors of a very tall building. This makes it a bit more intimate. Lovely bar in the atrium. The rooms are lovely too. Standard Interconti style with a few Japanese touches. The hotel is linked to Shinangawa station so you can take... More
