My buddy Stephen and I shared a room here for 4 nights while doing research in Tokyo. The staff was wonderful and proficient in English (though I speak enough Japanese to get by), the location is terrific; just north of the Imperial Palace.
The room had two beds that were typical of Japan (for foreigners, a little small and little hard, but ok), high-speed internet access included, cable TV including a couple of English channels, and was clean and well-kept.
As for getting around the Grand Palace is a block from the subway leads to JR rail lines (north to Iidabashi Station). 1 subway stop and 1 Chuo-Sobu rail stop (to Suidobashii Station) from Tokyo Dome City. Only a couple or three subway stops from Tokyo Station.
When arriving into Tokyo Station a cab will take you counter-clockwise around Edo-jo to get to the hotel. About a 10-minute trip. There is a Subway and McDonald's restaurants in 5-minute walk, as well as a 7-Eleven store.
For about $130 a night (what Stephen booked over the internet), we couldn't have asked for much better for our stay!More
