I can honestly say this property gathers pretty much everything that I look for in a hotel. It was my best overall hotel experience so far!
It's very centrally located in Chibuya (which is a neighborhood with many of Tokyo's main attractions) but still very secluded in a small street, beside a small temple/park. On the basement level you have access to 3 major subway lines, which is VERY convenient.
Staff will do anything you ask them and they're unbelievably polite. I bought my bullet train tickets through the Concierge and also booked a tour guide and both went very well.
What amazed me the most was the combination of traditional Japanese aspects with a very tasteful and minimal decor, still managing to keep everything very comfortable and beautiful. I was upgraded to a Premium Room on the 22nd floor, huge, overlooking Tokyo through the big floor to ceiling window - it was just mind blowing! I also loved the bathroom, all in black, also huge, with great shower and tub. I didn't care much for breakfast, which is also more expensive than in other 5* hotels.
I could not recommend it enough. I'm sure it will contribute to your Tokyo experience in a much more authentic (and cheaper) way than the big chain hotels.
