Reviewed September 28, 2013

We staying in one of the new korus rooms (after a terrible night in the semi double room of 17 sq m)
Overall a much larger room which had most of the things we needed. However the room had some significant drawbacks which after significant investment were a disappointment.
Firstly the bed which as a small 4'6" double was woefully small as a king or even a queen would have been appropriate for a room costing over £150 a night.
Secondly the television offered 4 channels of european tv including BBC World. Sadly when we tried it was offering a pre defined audio track of jazz and no explanation of the lack of other language channels which if working would have made the world of difference for non japanese speakers.
The lighting and audio system were billed as a new way of experiencing sleep and relaxation. Connecting my iphone to the system would only produce audible sound at maximum volume and this was poor quality and distorted. The lighting which I'd hoped would be all LED was a mixture of this and CFL low energy bulbs incapable of dimming or providing the relaxing evening atmosphere promised.
The highlight (bemusingly the expensive item) is the toilet which auto flushes and produces every trick from a sliver remote control. Some english language help would avoid embarrasing flushes and water works. Overall the bathroom was good however a cheap shower wall material still makes it feel like a pre built installed system. Some tiles or real stone would make a world of difference here.
So apart from location we wouldn't recommend this hotel. A shame as it gets so much of the little things wrong but tries so hard in other ways.

Staff great! Extremely helpful at all times! Perfect location, 5 minutes from JR station, 5 minutes to subway! Felt very safe at all times. 5 stars !! There are plenty of places to eat around hotel and at the JR station. The department store at the JR station has a wide variety of food. If you dont's like local there is an excellent Mcdonald's in the station.

We stayed here for one night. The lobby is on the 15th floor and has a great view of tokyo station. It is a 5 mins walk from tokyo station so that's very convenient. There is also a family mart at the ground level!
Rooms were clean and hotel was very quiet.
Would stay here again.

This property is just across the road from Tokyo Train Station so the location is very convenient for getting around Japan's capital. From the airport there is a train to Tokyo Station that costs $30.
And takes about an hour. There is also a bus that costs $10 that will take considerably longer at most times of the day due to traffic congestion. It does however stop right outside the hotel.
Rooms are a decent size for Tokyo,very well appointed and very comfortable.There is even a Nespresso coffee machine. The front desk staff are quite helpful. There is an English style pub next door (Rose and Crown) and also a 7 Eleven grocery store and a coffee shop.Tokyo Station also has a large selection of places to eat. The hotel is however a little pricey.

Room Tip: The higher the better .

Great location just 2 minutes walk from Tokyo Station Yaesu North Exit with plenty of eateries around. But most importantly, it's the staff with big heart who makes the differences. It's the sum of more then 100 years Japanese hospitality in the heart of Tokyo.

Very close to the Tokyo station. Four adults and one kid live together in the Japanese room type and not felt crowded. The room got everything you need and all are free including drinks. Great service is what we like the best.
