Hermosa Beach, California491 contributions292 helpful votes
This hotel is a perfect choice for your first night in Tokyo, especially if you’re flying into HND. It’s right next to the big/busy Shinagawa station, which is very convenient. You can get local trains here and also the bullet train to Kyoto/Osaka. We caught an express train from HND T3 to Shinagawa and were probably in our hotel room within an hour after landing. Also, it’s a very nice and luxurious hotel. The front desk staff is extremely friendly/helpful and the bartender was great. The room was very well-appointed, the beds were very comfortable and the room was quite large. We missed this hotel after moving to a top-level Marriott the next day. Heads-up that you can still sometimes hear the trains from the station below, even up on the top floor (32). There’s a 7-11 right outside the lobby and some local restaurants surrounding the hotel. The only possible negative I could see about this hotel is that it’s not in Shinjuku or Shibuya, but in the quieter area of Minato.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed at this hotel at the end of March 2023 and had an excellent stay. The location of the hotel is very convenient for us because it is connect to the Shinagawa train station via a short covered skyway. Shinagawa can be easily reached via train from NRT or HND airports. I have stayed at this hotel many times. Every time I have been treated very well. All the staff I have encountered were very courteous and professional. Room was very clean and comfortable with a very nice view of the surround area. There is a 7-11 store near the entry to the hotel thus very convenient if I want to buy drinking water or Japanese snacks. The breakfast buffet is very high quality and very delicious. I had such a nice stay and can not wait to go back again

This is always a favorite hotel for me in Japan. Besides being right next to the new Shinkansen station. The hotel sets a standard for excellence. In the executive lounge they had two excellent English speaking hosts (Aye & Srijana) who were great and very professional. A manger that was very kind to me was Toshiki Nishimura. He went out of his way to make me feel at home. It had been several years since I had been at the Strings InterContinental but they have keep up their high standard of service. Every staff member was helpful and did a great job. I can’t wait to come back.

Great hotel located next to Shinagawa station and only 15-20 minutes from Ginza by public transport. I booked a room with a city view and it was mesmerizing to see Tokyo at night. Overall the bedroom was spacious with all the required amenities. The king bed was huge and the bathroom quite large as well which is a luxury in Japan! The staff at the reception was very helpful and I highly recommend visiting the bar for its fantastic cocktails (some of the best I had during my trip in Japan).

We had another great stay at this hotel. Direct train via NEX took one hour and 10 minutes from NRT to Shinagawa station then less than 5 minutes walking via a covered walkway to the hotel reception area on the 26th floor. The lady checked us in was very polite and informative. We had a very nice good size room on the 32nd floor. We had great view of the surrounding area. Breakfast on the 26th floor restaurant had good variety of food choices and are high quality. Club lounge is very nice too with the afternoon tea and night time canapé. We will continue to return to this wonderful Intercontinental hotel whenever we come to Tokyo. This is our number one choice.

The Strings is in a very convenient location, so close to the train station and was easy to find. The check in experience was very good, the staff are so polite and helpful. Our room was well appointed and we had an evening view of Mt. Fuji- bonus! The room was very clean, the bed & pillows- excellent! This was a great place to spend our last night in Japan.

The hotel is in an ideal location, right next to the Shinagawa station ( <5 min walk). It was not the easiest building to find though as signage was limited. There are tons of food options and a 7/11 just outside the building. The hotel itself occupies the 26 - 31st floors of the hotel which means there really isn't a bad view to be had. Despite all the restaurants and lobby being within the hotel's atrium area, the rooms and the overall hotel was exceptionally quiet. The normal rooms were decent size, though the Club rooms in the corner a much bigger and boast an even better view of the city. The amenities in the room are all top notch, and I especially loved the shower. We had the pleasure of dining at Melodia for dinner one night. The food was excellent from the traditional Cacio e Pepe, various antipasti, primi, & secondi courses, with a perfect dessert sampler to finish things off. Our server (Mr. Lemon) was excellent in taking care of us. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel experience in Minato, look no further than the Strings.
