Mercure Tokyo Ginza
Ranked #12 of 92 Hotels / Ryokan in Chuo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Tokyo visitors have a number of locations to choose from. Fortunately, most areas have easy access to the excellent (albeit potentially confusing) subway system. Thus, don't be deterred by a Ginza hotel unless you're looking for local night life - Shibuya or Shinjuku offer much more at night. The Ginza is a high end shopping area that some might find slightly sterile. However, walks along the side streets will lead you to some excellent and affordable restaurants.

I was very pleased with the hotel - it was clean, quiet, and the staff excellent. I was even more impressed by the price given that Tokyo is among the most expensive cities and I paid less than I would for a mid-tier hotel in most major US cities.

The hotel has a small reception area along with a breakfast area (too pricey for me at around $17 US) and a french restaurant that I assume is a homage to the hotel chain's roots.

The rooms are small but not uncomfortably so. The bathroom was more than adequate. I especially enjoyed the shower which had incredible water pressure and a toilet fitted with a "shower," bidet and heated seat. For most of your electronics, you won't need a converter (Western plugs and a 100w current works for most laptops, phone chargers, etc.)

I believe no room has a king size bed but check first - I could be wrong.

The Mercure Ginza is located near the Yurakucho subway line; however, you more likely walk five minutes to access either the Hibaya or Ginza lines which provide easier access to popular districts and attractions. There are several convenience stores (think 7/11), fast food restaurants (including the very close and highly popular McDonald's plus good beef bowel, sushi, and tempura restaurants) and chain coffee shops near the hotel. The reception staff will provide maps and directions.

If you're coming from the Narita airport, I found the easiest way of getting to the hotel is to take the express train (you'll find the counter to buy tickets just outside of customs) to Tokyo station and from there, grab a taxi for the short ride to the hotel. Since many taxi drivers do not read or speak English, you may want to bring the hotel name and address in Japanese.

Dear Valuable Guest,


Thank you for taking some of your time to write on us such a long message on TripAdvisor…. It describes perfectly the area and gives good advises to the clientele on the environment of Mercure Tokyo Ginza.

I read it carefully and appreciated the chronology of the sequences and the veracity of your statements.

The hotel’s location is a good advantage for the visitors as they have all they need close and they can move in the city with ease as we do have two Metro lines in the proximity.

As for the breakfast, it is one of the cheapest compared to the other hotels of the same standards and as you know already…goods are very expensive in Japan. I hope you enjoyed it despite the price.

I will share your comments with my team to make them understand what our guests think of us and of our service… I can understand from your message that the team has been good serving you. They will be proud!

Please let me know when you are back to Tokyo, I will be delighted to share a drink with you and make sure you will be, once again, at your ease with us.

Please accept my best regards

The hotel is good but the room was to small, so if you expect the regular size, review that first and expect to pay much more because japan is very expensive.
The hotel is very near (7 minutes by taxi) from the Tokyo City Air Terminal (known as T-CAT), an excelent way get from the aiport to the city by bus. The hotel is also close (5 minutes by taxi) to Tokyo Station in case you want to take the train from the airport.
The staff is very friendly.

Like many things in Tokyo this hotel is compact. It was however clean, comfortable and close to public transport. Staff were helpful and overall the stay was excellent. The area is clean and safe and thankfully clear of Pachinko parlours. The Ginza shopping strip is only a few blocks away

Overall we had an average stay at Mercure Tokyo Ginza.

Location was great, breakfast was good and service was good except on arrival. We arrived late at night and did not find the gentleman that checked us in to be very friendly or welcoming. He was not rude but just not pleasant.

I am a Platinum member for Accor Le Club's and also an Advantage Plus member, I provided the membership cards on arrival. I did not get any recognition which I found was very disappointing and no benefits for being their highest level membership. All the receptionist did was photocopy the Accor platinum card which I did not understand.

We just left the Ibis at Seoul, South Korea and they were overwhelmed on our arrival, they provided complimentary welcome drink vouchers, advised breakfast discounts at the restaurant for A plus members, and provided a very early check in and waived the fee as we were Platinum members.

Our main issue was the bad smell in the room. When we entered the room it was just not a good smell it smelt like something died in the room, It was late at night and we wanted to sleep so I did not mention to front desk. We turned on the air conditioner to make the smell go away but it did not disappear. Everyday we had this pungent smell in the room we ended up buying some febreeze to deodorize the room.

We very much enjoyed staying at the Mecure Ginza. The staff were fantastic and their English was also great so easy to communicate.
The room was small but expected when staying in Tokyo, great location and very close to a subway, McDonald's and Starbucks!!!
They had a wide selection for breakfast including English favourites of toast, tea and cereal! Along with the Japanese rice dishes, and fruit selection.
Would recommend this hotel for convenient access around Tokyo!

We stayed at the Mercure for a few nights after arriving in Tokyo. Perfect place to recover from jetlag. A block from shopping in Ginza, walk to the famous fish market and to several Metro stations, short taxi ride from Tokyo station, lots of restaurants and convenience stores in the neighborhood. The rooms have everything you need, but as you would expect in Japan they are really small. Javier at the front desk will help you with recommendations for dinner, sightseeing etc in perfect English or in Spanish. We were treated as friends rather than paying hotel guests and felt truly welcomed. Breakfast is expensive, but do splurge at least one day and enjoy both Asian as well as amazing croissants as well as other French treats.
We plan to stay here on our next trip to Japan.

I read carefully your comments and I am glad to understand that you really enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated the teams’ quality of service with a particular appreciation of Javier. He loves his guests and looks always for the best way to make them all happy. I am happy to see that you were satisfied.

As for the breakfast, if you compare it with other countries in the neighborhood, I should say that it is expensive but compared to our competitors (In hotels), it is on the same range of prices of theirs’.

Location within walking distance to the train station and close to the pedestrian shopping street make this a good choice for a Ginza hotel, but the rooms are really tiny. So what, you aren't in your room much, right? Yeah, but it makes getting around another person in the room a really tight squeeze. The bathroom is nice with a Japanese type sliding door, but the step up/down for the bathroom can be awkward, especially in the night when you forget it is there in the dark.

For my money, I would look elsewhere the next time, but if I can't find a better deal, yes I would stay here again. Hey, the place is still standing after we woken up by an early morning earthquake during our stay there.

Dear Valuable Guest,

Thank you for leaving your comments on TripAdvisor.

I read carefully your comments and wonder what made you score a 3 out of 5 on the service. Knowing that most of the hotels in Japan have small single rooms I am quite sure that you will come back again to Mercure Tokyo Ginza.

Wishing you a happy day.

Furthermore, it’s a really short but nice walk to Higashi-Ginza Station and the Ginza Station itself, sometimes you don’t want to go in the underground because of the awesome window decoration of Louis Vuitton or a funny attraction driving on the Ginza Dori. The walk to JR Yurakucho Station is also fascinating because of all the beautiful shops and building you passing till you reach the Station where the JR Yamanote Loop takes you to all the must see parts of Tokyo in the shortest time. From Shibuya Crossing, famous for the huge crowed crossing at the same time over Harajuku, where the colorful Lifestyle meets the peaceful and historical Yoyogi Park and Meiji Shrine to Shinjuku Area, with the skyscrapers district and the government building, from where you could see Mount Fuji on a clear day.
