Shiba Park was booked for us through a tour company. It's a fine place to stay but nothing special. Rooms are quite small, but it's a big city so I wasn't surprised. A/C worked sporadically but not too well. Clear that previous guests had smoked in the room and the bathroom pipes smelled. Also woke up early one morning to a fire alarm going off which wasn't their fault, but didn't help the experience. I did like the beer vending machine on each floor, but sadly that might have been my favorite part. Nice staff though

This was my first visit to Japan and the first Japanese hotel that I stayed in.
It was a most pleasant experience.

Having found my way easily from Daimon subway station (5min walk) I got to the reception and found check-in to be ultra quick.

The room (double) was clean and nice with all the four star facilities.
There was nothing to complain about!

Breakfast was good and the restaurant staff charming.
The bar was rather pricy but then everything in Japan is rather pricy.
There is a Japanese style restaurant as well as a western style one.

The front desk will change currency with the minimum of paper work.

There are plenty of small supermarkets (7/11 type), ATMs and fast food outlets nearby.

This is an ideal place to make your base in Tokyo.
Finally, the staff were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and charming but then most Japanese are!

Stayed at the Shiba Park Hotel for one evening. The hotel is a bit on the older side but nicely maintained, clean, with helpful and friendly staff. Typical for Japan hotels the rooms are small and offer barley enough space to turn around. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful with directions and assistance.
The hotel has a number of restaurants and eateries. The Chinese restaurant located in the basement served excellent food with good service although it was extremely expensive. The main floor coffee shop serves more reasonably priced food and an excellent breakfast. The coffee shop staff were great!
The hotel is located close (a 5 minute walk) to the Tokyo Tower and the Zojoji Temple. The Temple is located in a beautiful park setting. You should allow a full afternoon for a relaxing visit. The hotel is about a 5-minute walk to the nearest Tokyo subway station and a 15 minute walk to the JR Hamamatsucho Station, which is on the main Yamanote Loop, allowing for connections to any of the major JR stations and Narita Airport.
All in all the Shiba Park Hotel was a very nice place to stay at a reasonable price.

Would highly recommend this hotel. Excellent location close the subway, JR, monorail and we found some great local restaurants close by. We stayed 4 nights, the staff were friendly and efficient, helping us with directions and tourist information, nothing was to much trouble. Rooms were a little dated but were in good condition, very cosy and plenty of room. WiFi was available in the lobby free. Breakfast Buffet was a great.

This hotel is very well located, being an easy walk to the subway and a JR station. One of the big strengths of this hotel is the staff - they were all really helpful. I was travelling with my husband and our two adult daughters and we spent 2 nights at this hotel at the beginning of our Japan trip and 5 nights at the end of the trip and all staff we met were very helpful.

Unfortunately, the rooms are in need of refurbishment. We had booked one double non-smoking room and one twin non-smoking room. For our first stay, we were informed that we had been given an upgrade and were given two triple rooms on the 4th or 5th floor (sorry I can't remember exactly which one). These rooms were very cramped and all of the furnishings and carpets were quite stained. Although, the cleaners tried to keep the rooms clean, they were so stained that it was impossible to make the rooms look clean.

On our second stay we were given one double and one twin room on the 11th floor and these rooms were much better. Whilst still in need of refurbishment, the rooms were a much better size and nowhere near as stained.

Whilst our rooms had no smoke smell, there is a strong smoke smell in the lobby.

There is free cable internet in the rooms and free wifi in the lobby.

The hotel is also very close to a number of restaurants. Although as we soon learnt anywhere in Japan is located quite close to restaurants.

The staff at this hotel and its location make this hotel a reasonable budget option.

This hotel is excellently located - close to the metro, JR lines and the monorail to Haneda airport. When we arrived we received a warm and friendly welcome and the staff couldn't have done more to be helpful and friendly throughout our stay.

The room was spacious (for Tokyo!) and comfortable. We found the place spotlessly clean and the cleaning ladies took a shine to our young son which he found very pleasing!

If I had one negative it was that if you are traveling for business (as I often do) then the wifi in the rooms isn't really quick enough to work easily. If you are on holiday though, and just want to check your e-mails then it's fine. There is also free, quicker Internet in the lobby.

Overall I would return here the next time I travel to Tokyo with family.

Room Tip: Try and get a room in the new anex building off the main street. These rooms have been refurbished...

Stayed at the hotel for two nights, as part of a tour of Japan. Hotel very comfortable and clean, and has a good choice of Japanese breakfast, or Western. The hotel has free wi fi , in the lobby. The hotel is also in walking distance of the Tokyo underground (Daimon station) which links to the rest of the underground network.
