“Good family hotel !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

With a very lovely Japanese Garden. The rooms were very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, even helped us arrange for a tour. Breakfast buffet was great. Good location, restaurants and convenient stores nearby. Money exchange machine inside the hotel makes it so convenient !

I could not believe that this hotel with its beautiful gardens was in Tokyo! What a beautiful refuge. This is one of three hotels on the same property and not the newest. Service was exceptional at the desk. The breakfast was wonderful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Take the shuttle bus from Shinagawa Station - especially if you have bags to carry!! We enjoyed walking on the grounds and in the neighborhood. The price for our stay was very reasonable. Everything you need! We will stay here in the future.

Room Tip: A view of the gardens is a plus.

Everything was just right and very Japanese in the best of service. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff especially are superb. Most spoke excellent English. Very comfortable rooms and the location was very good. Frequent shuttle busses to Shinagawa Rail Station- a main hub and a stop for the Bullet train, made it easy to get to anywhere in Tokyo. My choice for my next stay in Tokyo.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel when we recently visited Tokyo and we were not disappointed. They accommodated our request for early check-in and extra towels and pillows. The check in was quick and very courteous. The room was big (for Japanese hotels) and more than adequate for triple occupancy. And the price was quite reasonable for Tokyo. Our room was facing the gardens in between 2 other hotels. In the mornings and late evenings, it is nice to stroll around the gardens, s it had a very relaxing atmosphere. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle service to/from Shinagawa station but one must know the schedules beforehand otherwise it is long walk uphill to the hotel from Shinagawa station.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the gardens in a top floor

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We stayed 6 nights - early April for Cherry Blossom. There is a shuttle to the MTR Station - Shinagawa but it is only a 5 minute walk out the back gate (we never used the shuttle). As of the 1st April 2014 - they now provide free Wifi in the room - signal strength and speed were very good. The breakfast in the Patio Restaurant is very good & reasonable value. We had a room with City View - looking at Tokyo Tower - very good. We only had 1 complaint which we did mention to Guest Relations - that was that there was a grate over a drain on the side of the carpark that was bent - everytime a car, bus, taxi, truck etc... ran over it, you go Bang, Bang - this was so load it kept us awake - If they could replace the grate on the drain - they would have earned an Excellent. For this location we can visit everywhere - Shinagawa is a main station for the Shinkansen, it is also on the Yamanote Line - the main loop line in Tokyo
1 ticket to get on and off at any of the 29 stations is Y140 or a day pass to get on and off as often as you like is Y750.
The Tokyo Morning Television Show was doing the weather in the garden behind the hotel because of the Cherry Blossom trees - they are spectacular.
The Limousine Bus from Narita was at least 1.5hrs - so be prepared for that.
But it was a great location and if we go back to Tokyo we will stay here again.

From the airport you can purchase a "limo bus" ticket that will take you straight to the hotel (around 1.0 - 1.5hrs) and you get a very gracious welcome and efficient check-in. The rooms are smaller as expected for Japan but really comfortable and with all the amenities except a minibar (fridge is there but empty). However a quick walk through the garden to the sister hotel (New Grand Prince) and you will find a 24/7 shop where you can stock on snacks and drinks for your stay. I was lucky enough to be at the hotel during the bloom of the Cherry Blossom Trees and the Japanese garden is stunningly beautiful, especially at night when it is all lit up.
As I was there on business and in Tokyo everyone takes the train it was nice and convenient as there is a station at the bottom of the hill which made it convenient to go to work (mind you the hill looks very steep when you come back in the evening :-). Breakfast is great with a huge variety to choose from and very friendly staff who all speak English so communication is easy in the hotel. If you cannot decide what you want for dinner and where to go I highly recommend you discuss any ideas with the head concierge who will not only recommend but will even book a table for you (if you want to eat outside of the hotel)

Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: It is far enough away from the main road that any room is okay.
