We stayed in the junior suite for 8 days & I was pleasantly surprised at the size of suite fitting all 4 of us. The hotel is slightly out of the Shinjuku CBD, but there is a hotel shuttle bus service that takes only 10 mins to Takadanobaba station which is 3 stops of Shinjuku CBD station. The hotel backs...

In the University district of Waseda, just over five min walk from the subway, this hotel offers excellent value for money. It's not in the beating, neon heart of livelier districts of Tokyo but we felt like this gave us a more city-dweller view of Japan's capital while still being a metro ride from anywhere we wanted to be.

I was booked in to this hotel by the local office of the global company I work for. I arrived at 1pm and discovered an additional charge of about $125 USD for an early check-in fee. I made a big issue of it and they agreed to remove that ridiculous charge. I later tried to use the gym and discovered... More

I stayed there for a week while attending classes at Waseda University - therefore the Hotel has a very convenient location. If you plan on doing a lot of sightseeing it might be a little of track, although there is a shuttle between the Hotel and the next major Metro Station (it runs not too late though and Taxis are...

It is fairly traditional, with grand lobby, lots of meeting spaces, and somewhat grand European-leaning elegance. Service is very good, and breakfast is great, with many interesting Japanese options. Seems more oriented to Japanese businessmen and visitors, saw few Westerners. Staff is polite and helpful. I had a nice room (1200) overlooking the beautiful garden and with good views of... More

This hotel is fairly good and, in comparison to others in Tokyo, it is fairly big rooms. The staff is extremely friendly and has good English. The choices for breakfast are quite limited and they never change. The location is all right but not too close to undergrounds and, if you like to use their gym (a decent gym for... More

This hotel is comfortable and has decent amenities. The gym was closed during our stay so that was a big of a let down. Breakfast buffet is the only meal I had at the hotel. The choices leaned more to asian tastes but was fine never the less. Easy access to Narita City to see the sights. Booked here due... More

Once upon a time this must have been one of the great hotels in Tokyo…it is still quite a hotel, although I agree with other reviewers that it could use some new breath blown into it….perhaps a coat of paint or so and some newer furniture would help a bit ..We were located in Room 805 -- a wonderful and...
