“A good one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We stay here for 4 nights. The location is very convenience. Staffs has very good English ability so no worries. They store lagguages for you that is a plus when we need to travel somewhere else. Yes, it does not have bellman and Everthing is selfs services. But the price is so good that I don't mind that, otherwise you can stay at Kieo Plaza. Rooms are small but you pay what you get and most of hotel rooms in Japan are small. We love the view up on 35th floors amazing. We stay at Keio plaza before I think from now I will stay here to save a bit of money and go shopping!

Room Tip: The higher and better .

Our family of four had connecting rooms with two beds each on the 25th floor facing east with amazing views of the Tokyo skyline and Takayshimaya Times Square. The rooms themselves were nothing special, but we chose this hotel for location (close to shopping and dining), not decor. Some of the rooms in the hotel have been remodeled (as in the website photos), but ours had not, but it was nice enough. The price for Tokyo was very good value for two rooms (perhaps the remodeled rooms cost more?) and the space was large enough not feel cramped. The department stores and lots of restaurants were within easy walking distance for our kids- we did not have to use the train system or cabs to do these things as we had earlier in our trip staying in another area of Tokyo. However, the hotel is far away from the traditional tourist sights in the eastern half of the city. It is convenient for taking the shinkansen from Shinagawa station and the airport bus to Narita. Free wifi in rooms was a bonus.

Room Tip: Families should request connecting rooms directly from the hotel.

We arrived before 6.00am on a public holiday after a 12 hour flight and without having a guaranteed early access to a room. The reception staff bent over backwards to accommodate us for a 30% fee of the daily room rate which was extremely welcome. Our room had an expansive view of Tokyo as the hotel only starts at the 20th floor. Bed was very comfortable and all amenities available. Restaurant was good for both a Japanese dinner and hot breakfast.
Very close to at least two stations (Shinjuku and Yoyogi), within easy walking distance of Yoyogi Park and Takashimaya Department store. Airport buses from Haneda and to Narita airports operate from Shinjuku station. All very helpful.

Great location right next to train station for easy access to anywhere (once you get the hang of it). Plenty of eat streets nearby. Rappongi and Shibuya all just one or two stations away. Also headed out to Mount Fuji which is only 30 min on the bullet train from/to Tokyo station, then 20 on the subway to the hotel. Really nice hotel, business style so not too many extra frilly's that you would rarely use anyway. Staff were really nice and helpful. We got a corner room and views were great. I would recommend anyone coming to see the sights of Tokyo for a visit to stay here as it was really a great location.

Stayed here with my wife on a 3 night stay in Tokyo. The service is great, the views are awesome, the rooms have plenty of space for Tokyo standards at a very fair price, and the location is amazing. Nearly directly adjacent to Shinjuku Station, it makes the hotel incredibly easy to get to from Narita Airport and easy to get most anywhere in Tokyo (or elsewhere) by subway and/or JapanRail. The concierge speaks good English and are beyond hospitable. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Tokyo.

As they say in real estate, it's all about location, and this hotel has it in spades! Short walk to Shinjuku station(s)...of which there are many, access to a good number of breakfast and dinner options, and across the bridge to Takahimaya. The staff were pleasant and efficient and responded to requests quickly.

We had a corner room on the 25th floor with a fantastic 180 degree view of the Tokyo skyline. The room size was adequate, but had a column near the bathroom door which obstructed the view and bathroom access. The decor was tired, which was very disappointing, but I believe they are currently renovating. You may want to request a renovated room when booking. The bonus was wi-fi access, but connectivity was unreliable, particularly in the evening. Also, there were 3 English TV channels - not ideal when travelling with young kids! Housekeeping was OK, but additional towels etc we not provided as requested.

I would stay here again, if for no other reason but access to the subway, JR Lines and the Narita Bus, along with plenty of dining and shopping options.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room on a high floor.

Maybe we're getting spoiled, but on this trip to Japan we stayed at 4 hotels in the $300 a night range and the Hotel Century Southern Tower came in at last place. Its not terrible and the staff was nice, but it was a step below the rest and that is not reflected in its very high ranking in Trip Advisor. The reason for the lower score is lack of cleanliness, a bit of mold in the sink edge, some blood on a sheet, some flies. Much smaller size than the Hyatt Regency Tokyo and a somewhat marginal breakfast buffet (maybe good for the waistline) for the $20 per person price.

Also it is a bit of a walk from the Shinjuku Station which looked closer on-line.

The one big positive was free internet on the room TV. That was nice. I could check out places to see in Tokyo.
