“Idealy located, but...”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Hotel Monterey Ginza is just two blocks from Ginza main avenue where you find all luxury stores and also close to an entry of the Ginza Itchome station (even if you need to walk 300 meters under ground to reach the entrance of the tickets machine and access to the platform!!!).
The hotel is rather comfortable ; the room and bathroom are clean; prices are competitive.
The week point, as in many hotels in Tokyo, is that the space is limited, and worse, almost no space, no drawers to store your personal belongings. When you plan to stay two weeks in Tokyo, you can imagine the problem. The luggages cannot be stored, etc...
When reserving, ask for twin rooms (a little more space), and avoid double room (the bed is pushed against a wall...)
This apart, the hotel can be a good choice if you don't have too many belongings with you.
For the breakfast, shop at the grocery store accross the street to have your coffee and rolls in your room!

Room Tip: ask for twin rooms

The Monterey Ginza is just a 15 minutes walk from Tokya Station and easy to find without help. We jusst looked it up on Google maps and counted the traffic lights :=) Street names in Japan is no idea to try to understand...
The hotel is modern, very clean with quick service. Descent pricing on the minibar, room size ok. The toilet is a hightech marvel with functions such as antismell, bide, shower with adjustable water strength and a heated seat!
Only complaint is that the bed was to hard for my back. Price of the room was very competative.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. We paid about Y15000 per night for a twin during April which was a busy period.

Positives - location (close to ginza and not far off Chuo Dori, big main shopping street; 10 min walk or so to Yuracho (home of muji and loft), 20 min walk to tokyo station), convenience stores across the road, friendly staff, discount metro card (for non-toei lines, - bargain Y1000 for unlimited metro over 2 days - according to the Metro site you can usually only get this at the airport... so I was pleasantly surprised), big room for a twin, large bathroom, neat and tidy and clean, fast lan internet (free), walk distance to Tsukiji, european "french"/"art deco" styling

Negatives - no free breakfast (as we were so accustomed to), no 'eco' plans (common in Japan where the hotel will give you a slight discount to encourage you to reuse sheets etc for short stays)

First when you ask about the location of this hotel, the only answer is prime location, perfect for those who like shopping or window shopping. Need a train ride? just walk you are already at Ginza Itchome. Second value for what you paid, very convenient accommodation, very clean and comfortable. That's what we usually need when staying in a hotel. Hotel staffs are very friendly.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Monterey Ginza. Whilst it was quite a small room hotel it was very clean and handy to everything.
Service was excellent. There is plenty of places to eat nearby and a convenience store across the road.
Love the toilet.

This is modeled after a french hotel, even serving french food in its restaurant.

You get the usually twin bed perks, including the supplied toothbrush, tooth paste, razer, shaving cream, etc. which is standard for all of the hotels I have stayed in Japan. Also, the room is small, as are some of the hotels with 2 twin beds and a small bathoom and a tub being easier to use at times than the shower. This is not a knock at this hotel, - this is consistent with what I experienced, except when I stay in the Prince or Hotel Nikko in Osaka or Tokyo. In fact, I like the location very much and the staff spoke English and consistent with Japanese service, was consistently very inconsistent. I didn't go with the standard breakfast meal plan, but there were Starbucks and other coffee shops very close by. Also, Lawson's and Family Mart and a knock-off 7-11 are across the street. We also ate at restaurants across the street which were very good.
I would stay there again, as the subway entrance is vey close by and the main drag in Ginza about 2 blocks awat,

Room Tip: I had a room close to the elevator, and occassionally heard the elevator bell go off when the elevat...

I stayed here for 5 nights from 22-27 feb. This cozy French-style hotel is close to the Ginza itchome (round the corner) & Ginza metro ( about 8 minutes walk) stations, hence very convenient. To get to further places beyond Tokyo, one can also walk to the JR Yurakucho station abt 10 minutes away (there's MUJI & The Loft stores near it) and take the train for a stop to transit at Tokyo station (major hub) and then the Shinkansen. Family mart, Lawson's and Sunkus are just opposite for quick grabs. From Narita airport, take the airport limousine to Tokyo station (3000yen) and then cab to hotel (710yen) and vice versa to get to airport. My only complaint was the lousy, flat pillow :p
