RECOMMENDED: The Hotel Okura like a Grand Dame Ocean Liner plies through the water calmly and sedately ignoring whatever the latest trends are outside, comfortable with well worn tradition. You won't find rock stars staying here nor will you find families on vacation with noisy kids. This is a serious hotel for serious business people. Suit n' tie are the norm.
Staff are everywhere in the hotel and you will be greeted like royalty and attended to equally as well. Every request was quickly dispensed with and the staff gets credit for advance thinking of your needs.
Check-in is professional and efficient. The hotel property is showing a bit of age, but it's all well maintained, clean and polished daily. Rooms are nicely sized and well appointed. Comfortable would be the word. Quality and comfortable bedding. Total black out curtains. A small well stocked frig and coffee/tea service.
The bathroom is smallish and showing a bit of age, but it was built with good ingredients and is well illuminated. A non-fog mirror is a little touch that many guests might overlook.
On the downside, some minor minus points (wallpaper coming off the wall in some areas), the hotel restaurant is frightfully expensive and the morning breakfast buffet while perfectly acceptable isn't over the top - keep this property from earning a full 5* from me.
It is difficult to escape the hotel by foot. Though the nearest subway is a short 10 min walk. There is not a huge variety of evening entertainment/restaurants in this business center area.
All is in all, if the location suits your needs as well as whatever room rate you acquire, this hotel would certainly deserve your attention for an authentic Japanese experience.
