We stayed at the Cerulean at the recommendation of a work colleague and if we hadn't stayed at the Hotel ICON in Hong Kong only a few weeks earlier then my review may have been very different. We booked a room on the executive 'Cerulean' floor which included breakfast and access to the lounge. I would recommend this as it is nice to have the extra facilities inclusive. The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive and polite. The room was clean and I believe large by Tokyo standards but for me was a similar size to a standard hotel room in other major cities around the world. The bathroom and shower were excellent and the whole hotel was spotlessly clean. As I mentioned, the let down for me was comparing similar facilities between the ICON and Cerulean but the ICON just managed to go one step beyond in terms of service of what the Cerulean offered. Both had breakfast included but the ICONs spread was a buffet and also full service and was a much larger selection rather than a small buffet. They both offered afternoon tea but again it was full service at the ICON rather than serve yourself at Cerulean etc etc. I don't want to keep comparing in this review as what is on offer at Cerulean is excellent but for me I only recently had better in Hong Kong.
The bed was very comfortable and of course the location of the hotel is superb right in the middle of things. If you wish to travel by public transport the station is only a short walk away but as with all Japanese service, the hotel are most efficient at organising a taxi should you prefer.
All in all I would recommend the Cerulean but just be aware that other than attentive staff you are getting quite a bland corporate 5 star hotel rather than a hotel with huge amounts of character or a hotel that really does go above and beyond.
