HOTEL THE CELESTINE TOKYO SHIBA
Ranked #13 of 117 Hotels / Ryokan in Minato
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2014

I was previously impressed by my stay at the Celestine. I was of course curious as to whether they have maintained their standards. I can say that they have and clearly more foreigners have become aware of the value offered by the hotel. If you do book at the Celestine, make sure you fly into Haneda Airport which is closer to the city and not as large as Narita. If you do, getting to the hotel is cheap and quick. Take the monorail, which is a one minute walk once you leave customs, to the end of the line (Hamamatsucho). Trains leave frequently but all trains travel to the same end point. Once at Hamamatsucho, take the JR line one stop to Tamachi station. Total cost was 630 Yen. From the station it is approximately a seven minute walk to the hotel. It took me all of 35 minutes from start to finish. If you simply are loaded down with luggage you can take an airport bus (infrequent) or grab a cab from Hamamatsucho station.

The lobby is on the ground floor of an office building with the rooms on the 14th-17th. Be advised that they won't let you check in early. The staff is helpful and all speak serviceable English. The double rooms are comfortable by Tokyo standards. This means small but not tiny as they are in Tokyo hotels of a similar class. The cable TV has some 4 or 5 English language stations for those not fluent in Japanese. Wifi is free and available in the room. The room also comes equipped with an all purpose plug adapter which saved me when I forgot to bring my own. However the best place to work is on the large 14th floor lounge (free wifi) that offers free coffee, tea, mineral water and cookies. There is a garden surrounding the lounge with table where you can enjoy a meal purchased outside the restaurant. The area itself is far from exciting but the subway line is a mere 2 minute walk away as well as the JR line just a 7 minute walk. So it is easy to travel to anywhere in Tokyo. The area also has a web of small, inexpensive restaurants located between the station and Keio University, a short 5 minute walk. The hotel is often discounted and I have managed to snare some very good bargains here.

Room Tip: See if you can get the top floor (17th) with a view of Tokyo Bay.

The hotel is conveniently located in what we can consider 'Greater Tokyo', close to subway and JR stations. As soon as you get into the lobby, you have the chance to experience the order and attention to details so much loved by the Japanese, together with the professionalism and extreme courtesy of staff, who always have a solution for all your needs.
The room, and bathroom, quite spacious, are very clean and equipped with everything you could think of. In addition, the room is perfectly insulated and you wouldn't hear any noise, neither from outside nor from other rooms. Great bed, too, both for size and comfort. Pleasant lounge, on the 14th floor, where you can help yourselves with various kinds of teas and coffees.
Just to summarize: I would highly recommend it!

Spent 3 nights here, and i have to say it was a lot better than expected. I booked a single room which was quite spacious, and the ammenities provided were more than adequate.
The breakfast buffet was rather nice, and the hotel staff were very helpful.
All in all it was a perfect stay in a nice hotel, I'll definitely be back to stay there!

my company booked this hotel for me, I didn't have any idea about position and facilities. at the beginning I was a bit disappointed because the hotel doesn't have any swimming pool or gym, and around it looks nothing interesting. but after the first impression I was so happy of Celestine: 5 minutes walking from Mita station, where you can go all around Tokyo in 15 minutes, just 20 minutes walking from Tokyo tower. there is also JR very close and also Tamachi station or Damien just walking distance. during the way to Tamachi or Damien you can find many local restaurants (cheap and simply delicious, with tatami tables as well!) but also shopping malls with western food. the rooms in the hotel are big enough and with a wonderful view of Tokyo; food quality (especially for breakfast) is very high: I was impressed about the freshness and good flavor for any kind of goods. what I like most in the hotel was the lounge at 14th floor (for everybody!!) you can seat drinking free coffee, tea, cappuccino, water...cookies! and a big garden just in front for smoking (smoking restrictions in japan are very strong), very peaceful place! next time to Tokyo, I will go to Celestine!

We have spent three nights in this hotel and our room was quite large, compared to Tokyo standards (though we were three and the added bed took much of the available space).
The hotel is located in a business area that is very peaceful even during the week. Few subway stations are at walking distance (5-10 min.). If you plan to visit the city returning to the hotel multiple times I would suggest a more central location (or you will have to walk a lot, the alternative option being to take the Tokyo taxis that are not cheap at all).

Good business hotel.
Small room, but large enough, clean, very helpful staff.

Excellent soaps and body lotions. You can find in the room anything you want.

Great facilities. Good breakfast.

Do not seat in caffeteria is extremely expensive, just go around the corner there is a starbucks like coffee shop!

I stayed here recently while on business in Tokyo.
The room I got here was a good size and provided all the amenities needed - expect an iron and ironing board but with a quick call to housekeeping this was resolved.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable.
While I stayed here, something went missing from my room (a complete accident as it was white and blended in with the sheets) - it was accidently sent out with the laundry. The staff where very helpful and managed to have it returned from the company who look after the laundry services.
There is a decent choice for breakfast - probably not the best spread that I have ever had considering the price.

Overall, the location, cleaniness and staff made the visit a good experience. The hotel is located quite close to a section of laneways that are just full of good restaurants and food - so there is not excuse to get out and enjoy some local cusines!
