Walking distance to train station and to entertainment area Ginza. A lot of restaurant of all kinds around the hotel. Good bus service to Narita and Haneda. About 3000 Yen to Narita. Takes 1.5 hour. However watch the the time schedule carefully, it doesn't go every hour. Didn't try breakfast this time.

the hotel is good, the rooms are big and the bathroom is well equipped and large, everyone does their best to make you comfortable... so everything a 5 star hotel should have. the location is great, just few meters away from JR lines and Ginza station. But the hotel is outdated, and you can start seeing the age coming together.... More

The Dai-Ichi remains our favorite Tokyo hotel and one of our two or three favorites anywhere. This was the fourth or fifth time we have stayed there. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful and speak good English. The location is excellent - two short blocks from the JR Shimbashi station and the Ginza subway line and a little further from... More

Great location in a sprawling city, within a short metro / JR Line hop to all major attractions, and well within walking distance of good restaurants and under-arch pubs. Yes, it's in more of a business district, but that means it's less chaotic at weekends. The hotel is immaculate, Premier floor has the lounge advantages, and concierge are exceptionally helpful!...

I checked into this hotel today. The room I was given was dirty - stains everywhere. There is one large chair in the centre of the room and nothing else. It's like a basic hostel. I would not recommend staying here. It is very dated. On the plus side the staff seem helpful.

Great location for Ginza and Shimbashi. The staff were all phenomenally helpful. Super fast complimentary wifi in the rooms. The only thing keeping this hotel from getting 5 stars was the fact that the rooms are all a bit dated, but for the money it's the best deal in the area. Also, can't recommend the concierge enough -- they were... More

Stayed 2 nights here at 15th floor. Everything is perfect with Japanese Omotenashi. One of the end of famous Ginza street is here in Shimbashi. This hotel is located at the center of Tokyo. JR, Japanese Railroad and Tokyo Metro Subway available here. Also Shimbashi is the terminal station for Yurikamome line for beautiful Tokyo Ocean front, notably it is... More

The hotel's main strength is excellent location for a reasonable price. It's easy to get to via Narita Express and then 2 stops on JR from tokyo station (doable with suitcases) - we worked out that our NEX ticket (~3000yen) included the JR fare; otherwise there's a hotel shuttle (timetable on hotel website). Taxi to Tokyo station is just over... More

The room is spacious and clean, with big bathroom and well stocked ablution staffs. We pay a little extra to stay on club floor which provides free very good continental breakfast. Otherwise , we have to pay quite a bit for the breakfast. The view of Tokyo Tower and night view is amazing. We like the bar on the top... More

We had a great stay at the Dai-ichi Hotel. I would highly recommend it for its location close to the many attractions of Ginza. There is even direct access to Shimbashi underground station. The beds were good (I am quite sensitive to hard beds). It was also good value. So perfect for our holiday except one thing, which is why... More
