“Good value business hotel in central location of the government district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is a very nice hotel located aross from the Chiyoda district, the location of the Imperial Palace. Alas you can't go in to the palace itself and the surrounding neighborhood is not terribly exciting; government buildings and embassies mostly. Still plenty of food options and the hotel restaurant itself is quite good. The Hanzoman line is about 2 blocks away so you can get on there and subway to most areas of Tokyo. In essence it's a nice central location but not the most happening neighborhood; in retrospect I would have liked to stay in Asakusa or Shinjuku.

The hotel itself is well maintained and the staff are helpful. Great value for the money. Tatami mat sleeping takes some getting used to for those of us used to Western style beds so be forewarned.

Good location with the Tokyo Metro station Hanzomon very close. The hotel is more of a business hotel with small rooms, but ideal if you only goong to sleep. Great view towarda the Imperial palace and the skyline in Maronouchi district. Clean rooms and great staff. The resataurant offers breakfast of different kinds.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the upper floors for a great view!

We had a lot of "needs" for our stay in Tokyo and the Grand Arc fulfilled every one. We wanted a room that could sleep 3, we wanted to be close to the Imperial Palace and we wanted a nice hotel.

The Grand Arc was a nice surprise, considering it cost less than many others. Service was excellent. From check-in to check-out we were well taken care of by the staff. The room was large enough that even with the additional twin bed there was room to walk around. The bathroom was two rooms separated by a vanity. Nice touch with so many of us in the room.

The rooms were clean, the lobby was spotless. They even had a designated smoking area outside that had an air purifier so that the smoke wasn't wafted over every guest walking in or out of the lobby. Nice touch!

The view from the room was spectacular! The little gift shop in the lobby was quite nice and had many unique items as well.

I would stay here again if I were ever to come back to Tokyo.

I arrived here after a very long flight for a 3 night stay on business. From the outside it looked impressive enough, and the location close to the Imperial Palace gardens was very attractive. However, I was told that check in was not for another 3 hours and my room was not available. My complaints, saying I was exhausted and needed to rest were met with polite inscrutability, but no real attempt to help. I could not believe there were NO rooms that had been made up and that was confirmed when a colleague who also arrived early was able to go straight to his room. I asked if there was a lounge where I could sit in a comfortable chair with a soft drink, but there was none, only restaurants. The lobby only had a few uncomfortable chairs and a leather bench, which is where I ended up crashing out until my room was ready.

Once I got to my 10th floor room, the only impressive part was the view. The room itself was small and the furnishings were basic; the bathroom was more of a cupboard, measuring approximately 5ft by 6ft. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. There was no mini bar and no soft drinks were available in the room, nor could I find any room service menu. The TV was exclusively Japanese- no CNN or Sky News. WiFi was free, but slow, so I resorted to the high speed ethernet connection which was good, offering a robust connectivity. Food in the restaurants was unremarkable. No gym or pool.

Whilst the overall entrance to the hotel gave an impression of a mid-range standard hotel that would boast most of the expected amenities, but the accommodation and services were more like those of a low budget motel. Judging from the guests when I was there, the hotel is clearly geared to Japanese business travellers and, in my opinion, little concession is made to western travellers, although the service was always exceedingly polite and attentive, as one would expect in Japan. This is very different from my previous experiences with other hotels in Tokyo and I was therefore very surprised and disappointed.

I will not use this hotel again.

We spent three nights in Tokyo and we found a good deal with grand arc hanzomon. The hotel is close to the train station, very quiet and has a great view of Tokyo. Given that we originally wanted to stay at a ryokan, we decided to go with the Japanese room option instead of the normal bedding, which was proven to be a bad choice! Two of us couldn't even get any sleep on night one so we decided to get an extra mattress for one of us, only to be told that they ran out of mattresses for the night ... Hard to believe. They can do with more breakfast options too .. But overall, we were pretty pleased with the hotel ..

Room Tip: Be careful with flicking tv channels especially if you traveling with kids - they offer adult channe...

Close to subway station. Paid $180/night 3 people, last minute booking in June 2013. Free slippers, assortment of cutesie toiletries and amenities, fancy toto Japanese toilet, large bathroom/shower in the Japanese style room. Nice view of the palace and river. Clean rooms, nice staff. Be warned that Japanese room comes with futons on the ground, not conventional beds that you might be used to. When in Rome....
