“Great room for a 1-person stay”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I was in Tokyo for a quick business trip - just a 2-night stay - and was recommended to stay at the Monterey as it was very close to where I needed to be for a meeting. The hotel is, as you'd expect for Japan, spotlessly clean. Everything worked perfectly (although the wi-fi was undergoing an upgrade when I was there and was a little patchy). Nothing is very big (again, typical of a Tokyo hotel) but if it's just you, it's a great place to stay.

In particular, loved the bathroom - overstuffed with amenities for the business traveller (and the heated toilet seat was a real plus!) Good, powerful shower.

Bed was super comfy - and I was provided with a pair of pyjamas, which were neatly folded on my bed every day.

Handy vending machines in the hotel for soft drinks or even beer! Didn't try the breakfast, I'm afraid.

There are numerous good places to eat (Japanese) within close walking distance (like 1 minute) of the hotel, which is another plus.

Overall, great experience. Highly recommended. Just be aware of the room size. Not a place to stay with the family!

We stayed for 7 nights and the location is really good. It's right across the road from the Hanzomon subway station (with lift access for prams/wheelchair = no stairs). Close also to the Imperial Palace.

Upon arrival staff from inside the Hotel came straight out and packed our bags onto a trolley for easy transfer. Much appreciated. We were met inside by a very obliging male receptionist who spoke english quite well. He was very helpful and welcoming.

As we were a family of six we had 2 rooms - each with 3 single beds which was the exact width of the rooms. No room for anything else at all and it was quite cramped which I know would be illegal at home in Australia. The bathroom was small but very clean and modern. I am over 6ft tall and had no problems with the ceiling height as others had written here.

There were no views from either of the rooms which had different aspects.

Also the hallway smelled badly of stale smoke/cigars but strangely the rooms didn't???

The breakfast was ok with children under 7yo eating free with paying adults. The price for the others was overpriced though (JYEN 1900 Adults JYEN 950 Child). It was a Japanese/Western breakfast but nothing at all to rave about.

A much better choice is to go to the Hotel Grand Arc and dine in the Patio Restaurant on the ground floor. It has a terrific western style breakfast and is well priced. It is about 3 blocks from the Hotel Monterey Hanzomon and you can walk there casually in about 10 minutes.Great service too from english speaking staff. (easy to find - turn left after walking out of the hotel and head up the hill to the main crossroad {about 300 metres}. Cross this road and then turn left into the next street and walk about 100metres to the Grand Arc).

The area is very quiet and there seems to be alot of local people living in the vicinity. There are also heaps of dining places in the vicinity but be careful of overpriced establishments such as the bar next door (up the hill) which charged the equivelent of AUD$50 for two beers and three cokes.

Up the road is a Familymart but better still (and slightly closer) is a small supermarket (down the hill and turn left). It has twice the selection of goods.

BTW, if you run out of cash all you can do is go to a Citibank ATM and the nearest is at Akasaka-mitsuke which is the next station on the Hanzomon line. Be aware that as at todays date I could not get any other ATM to even acknowledge my card including the Post Office, Seven Elevens, Family Mart or local Banks. Only Citibank ATM's. You must have cash to buy subway tickets.

We liked our stay here but next time we will try to find something a bit larger due to our family size.

However, if you are single or a couple it is highly recommended.

-I got a smoking hot deal here! ($300 all in for 4 nights/2 adults/twin)
-The hotel is not in an ideal location but thanks to the Hanzomon line it is workable. Just expect to spend more time in transit than you would If you stayed near one of the major stations.
-The hotel is very clean and the staff were polite, helpful, and spoke English well.
- The rooms were average sized for a moderate Tokyo hotel (i.e small) but in true Japanese fashion they were well designed and lacked no comforts.
- There is a vending machine-restaurant and a pharmacy next door and a supermarket 1 block away.
- The Imperial Palace is within walking distance.
- TIP: Catch the Keisei SkyAccess Line (non-Express) to Oshiage and transfer to the Hanzomon line for the Hotel. It takes just about the same amount of time as the express trains but is 1/3 the price.

Nice hotel in a quite area and only a few steps from Hanzomon subway station exit 10. Is just across the street. Value for money hotel. We (one adult and two children) paid only approx. 730 US$ for 7 days. There is a small supermarket only 1 min. away. I would consider this hotel if and when I go next time.

The location is good if you want some city sightseeing. It is quite close to the metro station so you won't worry to find it, although one change is needed from train station by metro.
Very nice breakfast, mixed by Japanese and American food.
There are convenient shops (24 hr) and bars nearby.

My daughter and I were in Tokyo Aug. 2-7 and enjoyed our stay at the Monterey Hanzomon. As many had already mentioned, this hotel is conveniently located right across a Tokyo Metro subway stop - Hanzomon ('Z' line, colour-coded purple), stop no. 'Z05'. Our room was clean, comfortable, and more spacious than I expected - given Tokyo standards. Although front desk staff had limited English, they were very helpful nonetheless. There are no major attractions or shopping in the immediate area, but there are several restaurants, cafes, and convenience stores on the street. Be advised, though, that this hotel does not offer currency exchange services, so make sure to get some yen at the airport if you arrive on the weekend. All in all, a wonderful stay for us.

Room Tip: Given the location in a relatively quiet area, don't expect a view.

I went to this hotel with my wife in December 2011.

The rooms are modern and clean and at a very good price (I paid 80 euros) for Tokyo. Service is excellent and the staff was very professional. The rooms were quiet which is really a luxury in this city.

As for the location it's in front of the Hanzomon subway station so very convenient. The surrounding though are not very interesting.

The only bad side was that the view from the room was poor, there was a building hiding everything but at this price you can't really ask for more.

I would recommend this hotel
