Reviewed February 23, 2012

Stayed for last 3 nights, couldn't get out of there quick enough. The decor is old, threadbare carpets, scratched 1970's cabinetry. Took a full 24 hours to heat the room. Breakfast was expensive, with a poor selection. The hot food was bone cold - wasted most of my plate to avoid food poisoning. Family mart on the corner much cheaper better quality alternative. On the up side, the staff were great - welcoming and accommodating and an unbeatable location.

we stayed in this hotel and were not disappointed. they showed us a very smoky-smelling room at first and when we asked to change they did so very promptly and the new room was very comfortable with no smoky smell. As a bonus it was possible to open the window for some fresh air (which you can't do in many hotels). staff were friendly and helpful, although not terribly fluent in english. we didn't eat in the hotel, but there are quite a few restaurants, and a starbucks nearby.

Room Tip: ask for a non-smoking room with wifi. ( we had one on the sixth floor of the annex and it was great...

We stayed here for 3 nights on 24-26 December 2011 and stayed in the Annex building.

I like how close Hamamatsucho station is to Tokyo station (where we need to get to for the shinkansen) which is only 4 mins away and near the Daimon subway station for the Oedo line.
So it's very convenience on both lines to get to popular places like Roppongi, Odaiba, Shibuya, Akihabara, etc.

And enjoy the nightview of Tokyo Tower when we were there.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable. This is the best and most reasonable price hotel we stayed at during our 2 weeks trip around Tokyo, Nagano, Kyoto and Osaka.

Because it is not in the middle of Tokyo, this area is really quiet so no problem with sleeping at night.
I really like the fact that there are a lot of convenience stores around us.
And it was handy to have the Post Office nearby to ship most of our shopping stuffs back home =D
Easily avoided being over the luggage limit with the airlines and EMS (parcel) service was really quick and efficient.
You can purchase empty boxes from the Reception and they were nice enough to borrow us a masking tape for the night (to pack our boxes for mailing them back home ^^)

I would definitely recommend staying here when you are in Tokyo.

Room Tip: I think someone complained about the smoking. Just remember that in Japan, you need to specify th...

We stayed at the Shiba Park Hotel for 5 nights and found it very comfortable. We couldn't fault the rooms or the staff. We enjoyed the breakfast although it was a little expensive. There are many quaint cafes that serve breakfast in the nearby side streets.
The location is wonderful with lots to do close by and easy access to the very efficient underground rail system.

The Shiba Park Hotel is in an excellent location in Tokyo. It's within walking distance of the Tokyo Tower, and the immediately neighborhood around the hotel offers a fantastic, authentic Japanese experience in terms of food and bars. There's a convenience subway stop nearby, and the hotel itself is very nice. It's not a luxury hotel, but more of a business hotel. The rooms are fairly small, but very comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Even the buffet breakfast spread in the morning offers many familiar items for the American traveler.
We couldn't have been happier with this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Good location, close to shops and rail travel. Staff very friendly and polite. Surrounding streets very clean. Felt very safe walking the streets at night, looking at the sights. Found the Japanese community to be very friendly, courteous and welcoming. Even all the cars were very clean, obviously they take much pride in their appearance. Word of advice, rail system very crowded, be very patient. If train is too crowded to embark, wait for the next one, they seem to come on a regular basis.

Room Tip: Didn't have any problems at all with room allocated.

Excellent location from which to visit Tokyo but that's where the good news ends. Very dated, small, smelly rooms (smoking permitted throughout) and the breakfast offered a poor selection. Service was below average. We asked for help with several issues and received unsatisfactory outcomes to them all.

Take the time to look elsewhere as there must be better for the same price in Tokyo.
