“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

The Daiichi Hotel in Tokyo is an elegant hotel with a European feel. Our room was quite spacious by Japan standards. It easily fit 3 beds, one a roll away. All beds where comfortable , the linens very luxurious. The bathroom was also roomy & had both a bathtub and separate shower. A clean, clean room. The service excellent . Everyone was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed staying here and would not hesitate to return.

Extra bonus --many food places located just across the street. There's a Lawson's (a convenience store) across the street . There you can pretty much get an entire meal that's very tasty. Not just fast food, a real meal.

We stayed at Dai-Ichi Anex hotel for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Its right across the street from Dai-ichi Tokyo, which is a more expensive hotel. Our hotel was very affordable, amazing location, steps away from major train station, surrounded by tons of restaurants and bars. The room was clean and comfortable, and actually kind of big comparing to other hotels we stayed at. Their staff was super helpful and friendly.

Recently stayed at this hotel in order to attend a wedding.

Probably this isn't the best hotel in Tokyo, given that there are Mandarin Oriental, The Peninsula, Four Seasons Marunouchi, Park Hyatt, etc etc. The hotel is a bit dated perhaps but not in a bad way. Nothing here is flashy and overwhelming, which might be better that way.

The room for the twin beds are quite large for Japan. The staffs are well-trained to offer service but without being obtrusive. It's a relaxing and pleasant hotel for middle aged or elderly ladies and gentlemen who know how to spend money comfortably without overspending.

Overall, it's perfect. Nothing extra, nothing less; a decent hotel for a decent price.
Plus it's a three-four minutes walk to Shimbashi station.

This hotel is located in Shimbashi with all the salarymen and office ladies near to Ginza with numerous rail and underground connections. Being in the middle of this working environment, there are lots of less touristy food options with plenty of 500 Yen Japanses fast food establishments as well as beign directly opposite MacDonalds. This is where you buy the ticket from the vending machine outside and hand it to the kitchen staff in the restaurant. As such, english can be a problem however do perservere.

The hotel room was enormous for Japanese hotels with a massive bed and a table and chairs. Due to it's age, there is slight wear and tear however our room was clean and comfortable. The decor is olde world and this extends into the bathroom however there was both a standalone shower and bathtub. Book ahead and request a wireless router for the room or bring your own alon got take advantage of in room wifi. My only issue was that the router provided seem to only access to one computer at a time.

The concierge and hotel staff all spoke excellent english and were really helpful providing maps for all the attractions.

If you want a good sized room in an excellent location then I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: As mentioned, you can hear the trains so ask for a north facing room.

We had 2 extremely comfortable nights here. The room had a king bed with a Tempur (special foam) mattress. My husband and I are very different weights/heights and I have spinal arthritis yet we both slept well. The bathroom was huge with a separate bath and large shower and many amenities - also good lighting.

The hotel is close to Shimbashi Station. (But if you have a lot of luggage you're best to take a taxi to/from the hotel.) There are many cafes and restaurants in and around the station if you want somewhere close by.

Everything about this hotel was a treat -- the attentive staff, the over-the-top decor in the public spaces and the room, the incredible variety of shampoos, lotions, brushes, and sewing kits. Staff responded immediately to any question, came promptly to pick up our bags at 6:00 am, and made it very easy to book the shuttle bus to Narita. Not inexpensive, but nothing in Tokyo really is. I would book here again for my next trip.

The hotel is easy to get to from Narita airport - take the Airport Limousine service, and it stops right at the hotel's front door. Rooms were nice - a little small, but that is common for Tokyo, where space is at a premium. Decor a litte strange - sort of a faux French - but the restaurants were nice, particularly Enchantee for breakfast.
But it is indeed important to note that there are only a few Westerner guests there - it mainly caters to Japanese visitors. Thus the number of non-Japanese television stations is very limited, and some of the staff speak only a little English - but they are very friendly and helpful, and, after all, you are in Japan, so some immersion in the culture and language should be viewed positively. They do have a pool and health club, but it is in an annex building, not within the hotel itself. The lounge on the 21st floor is nice, and they occasionally have well known jazz artists performing there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the railroad station tracks - there can be some noise from the tra...
