Stayed here for one night as it was the last hotel in Tokyo with any rooms during golden week. £200 a night exc breakfast.
Very smart shiny newly done up old station hotel next to the main station. The décor is first class – deep carpets, new paint, shiny brass, great marble. The hotel has small public areas (one lounge, which was so full there was a queue to enter), small reception. Right next to the station so great for train travellers.
The rooms are in two lines – one line looks out over the plaza in front of the hotel (and has large rooms), the other looks out onto the wall of the station six feet away, and so is dark and pokey. We were in the dark rooms. The room was barely 100 feet (cats quite safe). Apart from size and the lack of light and outlook, the room was smart. The window was sealed, making the room feel very stuffy.
Good sized bath with a power shower over. Not huge but large enough, good smellies.
Very comfortable queen sized bed, nice cottons, good bedside lighting.
Ambient noise and light
Good curtains closed out the light, but some piece of electrical gear whined outside all night in a maddening falling and rising tone.
Tokyo is expensive, so maybe my frame of reference is not great, but while I would not have minded paying £200 to look out upon a view with 200 feet, I objected to paying £200 to look out on a whiny wall, so this was not a great experience.
