“Great location, friendly and cheap”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We stayed at the Shiba Park for a couple of nights in Tokyo before visiting friends in Mito, and were pleasantly surprised by the great location - literally a street away from the Tokyo Tower and Zojoji Temple - and the friendly pleasant staff. A quick warning though! We stayed in a standard twin room with our seven year old and (despite saying it could accommodate 4!) the beds were very narrow and we pretty much crushed together in one small single while she had the other. If I was going to stay there again I think I would go for the Hollywood Twin as they look a fair bit wider!

Good ice machine and value vending on the floor for late night beers (11th) and a real wealth of local marts to buy late night snacks from, as well as tons of good small local eateries. Good metro access too...an all round winner despite the teeny beds!

Room Tip: If you're going for a standard twin beware the beds are only 98cm wide!

A very comfortable hotel, we were able to get a triple and quad rooms for us all. Beds very comfortable, rooms very clean, staff very accommodating, kids activity in the front lobby with snacks for them was a winner.
The only downside was one night the air con in the room was switched to the central heating and it was too hot and stuffy but we opened the window. Great little restaurants around which the hotel gives you a map of to find, so no pressure to have to eat at their restaurants. We had daily breakfast at le pain quotodien around the corner which we loved. Great location near metro and JR line and temples etc
It all worked - even had washing and drying machines so we were able to get clean clothes easily which was great with young kids. The staff were very good and helpful and gave us a thank you gift which was very sweet of them Yes we would stay here again (which i wasn't expecting to think before we stayed there).

Perfect location, very clean rooms, perfect work of cleaning ladies (housekeepers). And very good staff. Polite and good-looking.
2 possibilities of breakfast - european and japanese one. We didn't try the japanese one - the western was quite well!
Location near Shiba park, Tokyo Tower and Daimon metro station. 7 minutes walk distance from Hamamatsucho JR station.

We stayed here for 4 nights in the double room (two double beds). Overall it was pretty good, the rooms were of average size and very clean, the staff were friendly and service was excellent, and the location was ideal to get around. Only a short stroll to the nearby subway line (Daimon Station) and JR Yamanote line (Hamamatsucho Station). Other plus points were the free WiFi in the room, and a 24-hour convenient store just next to the hotel. When we arrived at Tokyo Station by Shinkansen, we took a taxi from Tokyo Station to the hotel and it was only about 1200Yen which wasn't too bad considering we had a baby stroller and a few pieces of luggage.

However, there were some minor negative points during our stay. We were given a non-smoking floor (as requested) but there were two other rooms in corridor where the occupants were obviously smoking inside. One of it was directly across our room and each time we opened our room door the smell would waft into our room. Luckily we could open our window to get some fresh air.

Even though the lobby area was non-smoking, the designated smoking area right outside the lobby doors meant that much of the smell came inside the lobby too, especially when there's a group of 5 or more smokers out there.

They offered coin-operated laundry, but the clothes dryer was pretty useless as even after an hour of drying (medium load) the clothes were still pretty damp. And there were only 2 washer/dryer machines which means you'd be waiting ages for your turn.

All in all, we had an enjoyable stay. Our 4-year old daughter loved the little kids area in the lobby where they had some colour pencils and free kiddy snacks. Each time when we returned to the hotel after a long day out, she would head straight for that area to do some colouring.

We stay in this hotel on our srping trip to tokyo. The staff are very friendly & helpfull. I like the location of this hotel coz near to 3 train station & monorail from haneda airport (around 10 min walk to hotel). This hotel is very near to Tokyo tower so if you lost in tokyo just tell taxi driver to take you to tokyo tower & you can walk back to hotel.
This hotel has coin washing machine so you can do laundry before you go back to your country.

I have stayed at the Shiba Park Hotel at least once a year for the last 13 years. I highly recommend it to both first time and seasoned travelers to Japan. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the hotel is well located near transportation (trains and subways). The rooms are comfortable, clean, and cheerful. They have very good room rates with good discounts if you stay for several days. All in all, this is a hotel that I highly recommend.
