About
With a history of more than 400 years, the garden had in the past been the property of various known samurai lords. The 10-acre-ground features several ancient stone lanterns, scarlet bridges over koi ponds, a stone garden, waterfall, as well as a myriad of flowers and rich foliage that bloom or change colors from season to season. While nestled in the heart of this busy city, the quiet and peaceful ambience that enfolds the expanse provides a moment of repose to hotel guests and visitors alike. We hope you will come and enjoy the Japanese aesthetics and seasonal features when you come to stay with us or dine at our restaurants.

We really chose this hotel for the beautifull japanese garden of the picture; and it really is a beutiful one including the cascade, the ponds with kois, the little bridges and pathways to stroll.
The hotel is a deluxe one with what we suppose was the original tower and a second tower, the Garden Tower (or viceversa) where we stayed. It is also a Convention Center and as expected, has several top restaurants in the premises.
Price was the same as other Tokyo hotels (where we have stayed) which fell far-far behind in room quality and size and facilities in general.
Of course, in room tea-coffe making, nice toiletries and complimentary newspaper. Additional note: check in was in the 6th floor of the Garden Tower as the lower floors have different uses as convention center, conferences, etc.
Hotel is a short (5 minutes) walk from Akasaka-Mitsuke Subway Station (not access free with JR pass), fare of 170 yen from Tokyo Station, half a dozen or so, stops.
The hotel lies besides the Akasaka nebourghood, which comprises several streets full of restuarants, cafes, bars, etc, reasonably priced.
It has an office complex just accross the street with more nice restaurants and finally, it is tucked within the Chiyoda City high rise buildings. All in all, a very nice environment.

It’s quite a maze to actually get access into the garden - access is via either the 5th or 6th floor. It is stunning how they are able in incorporate such a beautiful garden amongst the “concrete jungle” especially with the large waterfall in the middle. Definitely worthwhile spending some time here, although beware, there are insects here during summer and a few of us were bitten including myself. Might be a good idea to spray some insect repellant on your body if you visit during warmer months and are prone to being bitten. There are restaurants in the area of the garden, although these were not open yet when we visited in the late afternoon. Will visit this garden again if we are in the area.

We ended staying one nite only, which was our first nite in Japan. The hotel itself is a bit of a walk form nearest train station (about a 10 minute walk - with luggage. The hotel itself is huge property. Our room was in the back area and it was quite a walk from reservation desk to the room, but the bellhops took care of the luggage. Service is top notch as you'd expect in most mid to high range hotels. The Omani didn't disappoint in that respect. Our room was nothing special, but it was clean, quite and comfortable. We'd likely stay somewhere else as this location was not the best for u, but we didn't know having never been to Japan before. Again, nice place, okay location.

Came here expecting to explore a garden and for my disappointment I found out the walking trail is closed and you can no longer enter the park. Sorry guys.

This garden, despite being sandwiched between the hotel and a busy road, is an oasis of calm.Beautifully kept, with a variety of paths through the gardens and around the water. There's even a couple of well hidden paths that add to the serene atmosphere. The waterfall and large number of very large koi carp add to the atmosphere. There is also a statue of the founder, Otani san, in the garden. If you are staying in the hotel then it would be a great shame not to visit the garden.

Access via the hotel or from the main road the gardens are really surprising, with a beautiful waterfall and lovely Japanese style layout a really peaceful place to relax. A couple of restaurants owned by the hotel are located int eh gardens. Worth visiting at night when all lit up

Have been going to this hotel for 20 years and one thing that has not changed is the garden and for some reason it is the one thing I want to see that is the same in the constantly changing City of Tokyo with its traffic and its packed trains and its crowds. It is heaven on earth -- beautiful, tranquil and peaceful. Hats off to the arborists and the gardeners.

The New Otani is as big as a small town. 20+ restaurants (try Ransen if you have big budget), small supermarket, post office, , pharmacy, book store, clinic, gardens, fashion boutiques, art galleries; you could check in an never leave the grounds. Room rates are usually 20% less than comparable hotels. If you can find the right deal worth trying.

Great position the entrance is 100 meters froma connecting subway. Everything in the hotel is incedibly pricey, they charge £26 to walk through the gym door , each time you use it, comprable to the £4 if you use the public gym across town. £90 each for a set, fairly uninspiring, meal. There are however several izayakas just 5 mins walk which provide outstanding food and a real taste of japanese culture, indeed we never bothered eating in! The hotel is clean and friendly but the decor a little tired, its also far too big. Wouldstay again for the convienience of the location but would probably choose somewhere else. 3 stars
