When booking we considered this hotel and the Century Southern Tower as they were both well rated and similarly priced. To hedge our trip we stayed at both, this puts us in a very good position to make the comparison. We are now glad we had booked the majority of our time at the Capitol. The Century is OK and I will write on this soon, however it doesn't compare to the Capitol other than it's proximity to Shinjuku by any measure.
All the former reviews of the Capitol are accurate in terms of room size, view, subway access, cleanliness and wonderful bathrooms. So I will just concentrate on what else appealed.
We checked out for a couple of days to tour and as soon as we returned to the lobby we were remembered. They securely stored our luggage while we were away. The Concierge arranged a fantastic Kobe beef restaurant (see Kobe 511). Every member of staff genuinely treats you as a valued guest. Something about this place makes you feel as if you were staying in an exclusive penthouse appartment with private subway access in central Tokyo.
