“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have stayed here a few times. It remains one of my favorites when the budget permits. Outstanding views on the Rainbow Bridge side. A little distant from public transport (200 meters) but that is the only drawback

Before you book this hotel make sure to check other people experience and than make your choice, You can do online booking or talk with live agent. Use you AAA card for better rate. For extra person you will pay extra for room and breakast. Also mid week is cheaper. For example Friday night cost us 16,800 YEN and Saturday was 27,200 YEN. Reason-lots of Japenese using hotel during a weekend with their families.Exchage rate between Yen abd Cdn Dolalr is ~80. so 8,000YEn=100CDN$

Hotel has very good location close to Henada airport, Hamamatsucho station (10 min. walk) and Takeshiba (Bullet train) station (2 min walk from recpetion), famous Fish Market, River port for cruise boats. It is very safe in and around hotel.

High price hotel where you will definetly not get value for your money. Staff is very polite but almost nobody speaks English. Rooms are small and very clean but above floor 20 rooms are bigger and better. Very good water pressure in shower.As a club member you may use Sky View Lounge on 23rd floor with nice breakfast, drinks etc. Hotel has few expensive restaurants and it will take you more than hour with bus from Narita airport.

Chef's Live Kitchen restaurant for example cost ~5,500 YEN per person for buffet style dinner. Food is good with lots of choices but moment you sit at a table they will bring you a bill.
Complain will not take you far away since nobody speaks English and you will have promenade of waiters trying to help you understand. Problem is that they did not post any menu with price-therefore it is natural that peopel get caught of guard


Internet service is available in room for 525 YEN for 30 minutes but you must use it all at once, otherwise will expire after you log off. This was not adverized in offer. 24 hours will cost 1575 YEN.

In conclusion, good loaction, clean and small room, high price, almost nobody speaks English and all staff is extremely polite

Room Tip: Ask for Room overlooking river. either North or East side will work

This is a nice hotel, smallish rooms (but that is common in Tokyo). Wifi not available in the room but wired connection worked fine. Bathroom was a bit dated. Bed quality was good. A colleague selected this for me - if you stay here there are not a lot of things to do within close walking distance (restaurants, shops, nightlife etc.) on the plus side, room views are great.

Stayed at this hotel a couple of times as a tourist, the location is really convenient for Henada airport on the Monorail to Hamamatsucho station which is only an easy 8 minute walk from the hotel & gives great connections to the rest of the city. The Fish Market is close by which is a fantastic experience, either stay up very late or get up very early to enjoy it - ask the helpful concierge should you need a guide.
The rooms are a really good size & well appointed, as an IC Ambassador I had a room with a fabulous view of Tokyo Bay, however many rooms enjoy spectacular views - if your on the North side of the hotel the illuminated Tokyo Tower at night (15 min walk) is spectacular.
I'm not bothered by Wifi on holiday, but I am interested in consistent quality service, and the IC Hotel Tokyo Bay offers this in abundance.

Situated in Tokyo Bay offers a fantastic view from your room. Unfotunelly is one of the few positive things I found in this hotel.Price is very high for their quality. Staff almost no one speaks English.
Rooms very small but very clean. Restaurants in the hotel are extremely expensive service in the restaurants is good some girls speak English specially in the Korean BBQ.Club Lounge is just to
have breakfast and snack you can't check in or check out in the 20th floor, everybody has to go to the reception and make the line. Shuttle bus works as a Swiss watch.Well situated easy for transportation either for leisure or if you are for work, very convinient if you use Haneda Airport.
Bell girls you call for your lugage because you are checking out suddenly a fragil smiling Japanese Girl arrives to pick you heavy lugagge, so you feel sorry for her at the end you end up
taking care of your own bags.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are a little bigger and you have very nice view.

2012 and no free wifi??? For business travelers and everyone with a smart phone travelling from outside of Japan, a wifi is a must. Apart from that, the hotel facilities are old and run-down and feels like I am in the 80's. On other aspects the hotel is very average. But due to the wifi issue and old rooms I rate this hotel as poor.

The room is good in Japan Standard. Room size is good, water pressure is strong and clean. This hotel standard is dropping. As a Royal Ambassador, i got an upgraded room on the Club Floor river view. My cowoker being a platinum member got an upgrade to the bay view room?
Be frank, both view are not bad but of course the bay view is more open an pleasant.
My room has problem with the air-condition. Understand the tokyo is under power saving measure, however the room is just too warm! On the day I check in, the temperature is around 24C even after complain the room is still warm. On 2nd day morning i complained to the front desk, the room temperature is just get a bit better when i return end of the day. On the 3rd day, the temperature just good. I think it is around 21-22C in the room. Day 4 the temperature get worse. You can get a bit cooler if you climb up and put your face in front of the aircon vent. They send the maintenance guy with the staff from the front desk, the thermometer show the temperature on the aircon vent is 21C. Obviously the temperature in the room wont be cool. it is between 23-26C if you away from the vent. Should I move my bed under the aircon vent to sleep? They offered a room change, it was like midnight. After packing all my stuffs, we found the other room is carry the same temperature than the original. I been told to hold on and try to locate another room. Half an hour later, we walked back to the same room. Yes. it was cooler than before but it is still not as cool. I gave up and sleep back in the original room. Just cannot be bother! Since day 1, i was asking if they could provide a fan or cooler but negative.
I will not bother to consider this hotel again especially in the summer.
In my last review, i already mentioned they are dropping their standard. No more usual club floor reception, all check in/out are on the main lobby.
Club Floor breakfast is nice but limited. Good that they offer Free Internet Access. I usually bring along my pocket wifi router. It is always helpful! Even for those hotel come with wifi but you may not get good signal in the room. You can always set your pocket router to the location that can catch a good signal in room and improve the coverage in your room.
This time hotel front door is under renovation but no notice mentioned some work is going on. In the room notice about "No Overnight laundry services" due to power saving which i understand. But why No Room Services after 1am? Shouldn't these be the basic things in a 5 Stars hotel? This is just not up to the standard that i usually found in Intercon.
One good thing, staffs are rather friendly and helpful. I have left some loose items behind the room, they have kept them and informed me with pictures email, including some magazine, plastic bag and paper napkin which usually hotel will just dispose them without keeping.
If they are not going to address those problems especially the temperature in room, I dont think i will think of this hotel again.
