I stayed two nights at the Metropolitan Marunouchi at the tail end of an autumn foliage trip to Kyoto. I had previously stayed in the Shinagawa area for convenient access to the more manageable Shinagawa station, but wanted to try something different. The Metropolitan Marunouchi is first and foremost a business hotel, with plenty of men and women in suits coming and going through the lobby, but is nevertheless quite comfortable. Yes, the room is relatively small. I booked a nonsmoking queen, but was given a nonsmoking king room on the 29th floor with a direct room and bathroom view south over the tracks. Surprisingly, I heard very little train noise. I could hear a very distant, faint low-pitched hum, like you might hear from a refrigerator, AC unit, or heater down the hallway or in another room. The windows are double-paned, and do not open. The bathroom was strangely hot, until you opened the door to allow it to air out.
The room was perfect for one person, for a few days. It might be more challenging with more people or a large amount of luggage. For example, the closet is tiny. Perhaps one could fit a couple of coats and shirts, at best. That being said, the room was comfortable, and perfect for my needs. Access to Ginza, Akihabara, Ueno, and Asakusa was simple. I had breakfast outside the hotel - there are plenty of options in the train station basement and adjacent basements in connected office buildings, particularly the Gran Roof, which connects to the Yaesu side of Tokyo Station.
The hotel is located right outside the Nihonbashi exit of Tokyo Station, in the northeast corner, near the Shinkansen tracks. It occupies the top floors of the Sapia Tower office building. If you find yourself under the pretty dome of the north Marunouchi exit, you are in the wrong place. Go back towards Yaesu.
