Feb-13 we paid the same price to stay at the Conrad Hotel in Tokyo. We picked this hotel for a change, and because the Conrad is a little bit out the way. We stayed 4 nights as part of our holiday and at the weekend the area, which is mostly surrounded by embassy's and buisnesses, was quiet but always felt safe. The Okura was more central and accessible than the Conrad, really close to 3 subway stations each on a different line so it was easy to get everywhere in Tokyo: Roppongi-itchone, Kamiyacho & Toranomon. The Conrad is made up of 2 buidings linked together by an underground passage, so for us staying in the newer building, we were 3 minutes walk to the first 2 stations, but close 10 minutes from the third. Once you work out all the different exits from the hotel, as it is a bit of a maze going up and down in different lifts, then it also makes getting to each station easier. The staff at check-in were very friendly and helpful, they gave us an early check-in by 1 hour, and I thought the hotel felt more relaxed than the Conrad. Apart from these 2 points I thought the Conrad was better value for money, as for the price of the room I would expect a luxury hotel and the Okura feels very tired and in need of renovations. The room was really large and clean but felt old fashioned and tired. The bathroom had a few things that would have been easily changed to give it a more modern feel, like the removal of a rusty stool(?) and yellow looking rubber bath mat. The shower was also very average and just fixed at one point on the wall. On the plus side you do get Sheseido toiletries and free wifi in the room. The negatives are really quite minor points and overall the location was great for us and I enjoyed my stay. If it had been first hotel I had stayed in Tokyo in this price range my review would probably be different, but I think for the price you can probably get better value somewhere else.
