This trip was a business trip for an event at Tokyo Big Sight. We chose the hotel near byI arrived at Narita airport. Not having done my transport research, I decided to take a taxi. I was expecting an expensive fare and it was. It cost me almost $300 worth of taxi fare to get to the hotel.
Check in was easy. Staff spoke good English and friendly. When I got to the room, I was a bit surprised about its size. It was compact. I had a large suit case and I had to keep it closed if I wanted to walk around the room. It had a small cook top on the desk so you can boil a jug of water. It had the usual fancy toilet with many buttons. The bed was comfortable and the view was interesting - I was facing a train station.
After few days in Tokyo, I got familiar with travelling with the local railway. I was able to travel from the hotel to touristy places like Akihabara and Asakusa by train/subway. The JR Rinkai line goes through Odaiba, crosses the rainbow bridge and you change the subway at the Shinbashi station.
Food was great. One of my highlight was the Bistro La Rochelle, which is on the 2F of the same building as the hotel (Ariake Park Building). It's one of Iron Chef Sakai's restaurant. The food was exotic. There are Chinese and Italian restaurants there too.
Overall it was a clean hotel but very compact for the price I paid compared to other hotels I stayed around the world, but then I was expecting it. It is a bit out of way if you want to tour Tokyo.
