Not just for business, this hotel is perfect for a single traveller or a couple looking for a really convenient location on the JR Yamanote line (Central Tokyo). It’s clean, it has everything you really need, from TV, hairdryer, pant press all the way down to mini laptop speakers, free LAN internet, TEMPUR like foam pillow and washlet toilets. There is also free Lavazza coffee in the lobby that you can get anytime.
The pricing for this hotel is a real bargain- Single rooms go from about 7000yen (about 87$USD) depending on the size of the room and the day you stay, which are impossible prices to beat in central Tokyo.
This hotel seems to have been renovated, so no scary carpets or bedding~ The carpets are clean, bedding is white and crisp and the walls are newly wallpapered. Rooms are still business-hotel sized, that’s unavoidable in Tokyo, but it’s adequate. All appliances are new and updated, flat screen HD television, and even an air filter for ionization. I slept very well, the beds are nice and firm and I love the foam pillows (regular pillows are also provided).
It is a 2-3 minute walk from both Hamamatuscho JR Yamonote station (North Exit) and Daimon Metro (Toei Asakusa Line and Toei Oedo Line Toei Asakusa Line and Toei Oedo Line Exit A2). You are on the East side of Tokyo, close to Ginza and Tokyo Station. You are walking distance from Zozoji Temple and Tokyo Tower, and a short train ride from Tsukiji Fish Market, Shinjuku, Roppongi on the Oedo line (no transferring needed). Getting to Haneda airport is very convenient, there’s the monorail station upstairs of the Hamamatsucho JR, taking about 20min (please check the monorail schedule, as it is unfortunately not running 24 hours yet).
Being located in a business area, there are many restaurants and bars around that are reasonably priced. The streets are empty on the weekends, which is a nice thing if you like quiet –in contrast to noisy areas like Shinjuku or Ikebukero.
I had reserved a single room for 3 nights online. I needed to add a 4th night to the beginning of my stay but all singles were occupied so instead booked a superior room at a higher price. Upon arrival I asked the reception if I was able to stay in one room without having to switch rooms mid-stay-he arranged for me to stay in the superior room for all 4 nights, with 3 of those nights at the single room rate. He seems to understand guests’ needs and convenience and spoke English well.
I just checked the website and noticed that the listed rates are not the same as the actual rates, so you may be pleasantly surprised to see the actual rates after entering your preferred dates. I guess it all depends on the season and availability. They also have promotions. http://www.wmt.co.jp/en/location/ms_hamamatsucho/index.html
I had a very comfortable stay here and would definitely stay here my next trip (and I do go to Tokyo quite often).
