“Great location and rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I've stayed here a few times on business and always found the staff very helpful and the rooms very clean. Rooms area good enough size, WiFi has good performance, check in is very smooth but they do not offer an express check out. Breakfast was very busy during my last stay as they were running a free breakfast promotion which led to long queues but I haven't had this problem before. The buffet is very good but the bircher museli isn't the best, I haven't had evening meals here so I can't comment on those. The TV stations are very limited so outside the news channels don't expect much and the ironing board provided on request is one of those small boards which I find painful to use. can walk to Shinjuku station in about 10 minutes but I need to cut through the Keio Plaza to do this though but its slightly closer to the main area than the Hilton and I think its better than the Keio Plaza so it will remain my preferred hotel in this area

The located is in the Shinjuku district, the hotel is ok if you want to be out of the way from the hustle and Bustle, on the hotel web site says only a ten minute walk to the main train station, I walked it twice couldn’t even get close to 10, it’s more like a comfortable 15 minute walk, the Hyatt does run a free regular shuttle bus that takes you to the Shinjuku shopping strip and Train station takes about a 5 minute trip, beats walking
We arrived late evening after taking the limousine bus which runs both ways Narita airport to the Hyatt about an hour drive and $30 each would use it again.
We booked the club room and have done this in other city and found it unusual here that we were not allowed to have breakfast in either areas of the hotel, had to be in the Regency Club Lounge that offered breakfast tea service and evening cocktails, compared to other hotels I’ve stayed in it was average for the price you pay.
All staff that we came into contact with where all very friendly and customer focused, the cleaning staff that did our room each day (4 nights) were excellent and very helpful.
Another down side is that you need to pay for internet access, 300 yen per day but it is per device. So if you have a number of devices the cost could mount up, although if you are in the club lounge you do get free Wi-Fi but you are paying a lot more for your room

I've stayed at many Hyatt's in Asia and loved all of them. This hotel was good but it wasn't as amazing as most of the Hyatts in Asia. The lobby is very large and nice. Check in was very easy and the man checking me in was very nice and upgraded me to a Deluxe Room. I thought the Deluxe Room was very nice. The toilet is in a separate room than the shower. The window to the room was small but had an amazing blackout shade and I slept really well. Since I am a Platinum member I got free wifi which worked very well. The hotel is right across the street from the government building. In terms, of location it is pretty good but Not the best for Shinjuku. It is at least a 7-10 minute walk to the center of Shinjuku. I would not walk late at night by yourself from Shinjuku center to the hotel, since most the walk is in a deserted business district. Also, I would not walk from Shinjuku station to the hotel with heavy baggage. I tried doing it but had to end up taking a taxi because I got very lost. In terms of the hotel services, there were long lines for everything such as the concierge and the restaurant. At times I thought this was like a large convention hotel. For the price it was a very good value and I would stay here again

After a 10-hour flight from San Jose (CA), we arrived at Narita to then take a two-hour train ride to Shinjuku station - the most transited station in the globe. Walking out of there trying to find the correct exit which would lead us to the hotel was close to a nightmare! This was our first time in Japan, so it was a very exciting moment for us.

After an hour wandering around the station, we found the correct exit and finally arrived at the gorgeous Shinjuku skyscrapers area. The Hyatt was one of the nicest buildings around.

Upon entering the humongous lobby (one of the tallest I've seen, along with the biggest chandeliers in the world) two eager Japanese clerks approached us and took our bags to the check-in agent.

In less than 5 minutes, we were issued our key cards and directed to our rooms in the 16th floor.

Rooms were spotless. Clean and with a very nice scent. Beds, albeit a tad hard, were comfortable enough for a great sleep.

The view from our room was breathtaking, with a natural park full of trees on the right-hand side, and the Shinjuku district building on the left. In the background, some of Tokyo's most symbolic places could also be seen.

We requested to have Wi-Fi access, so we had another nice staff member come up to our rooms and install a rather obsolete router which, however, delivered the fastest internet speed I have ever experienced in my life... Asia, I believe!!!

The TV options aren't the best. There are the usual CNN/BBC/FOX channels, so don't expect much.

The bathroom is OK, nothing out of the ordinary. The toilets have the usual Japanese bidet function which I was reluctant to try.

Breakfast, even though it isn't included in the room's rate, was quite good. Several western options, such as omelettes, croissants and yoghurts are available. My only complain is that when crowded, they fail to replenish the buffet quickly.

All in all, it's an amazing hotel located in the best district in Tokyo. It's 5 minutes away from the Station and the staff is professional and corteous. Airline crew often stay at this hotel. We managed to spot Alitalia and Air France's crew.

There is a shuttle that runs from the hotel to Narita and Haneda every hour for about 25 US Dollars.

Completely recommend it!

Hyatt Regency set the standard for hotels for our visit to Tokyo. When we checked in, we were upgraded to a deluxe room. We booked a standard, non-smoking. The deluxe room have a separate toilet to the bathroom and the standard you would expect from a 4 star hotel.

It is not located close to the Shinjuku shopping strip but a regular shuttle bus takes you to the Shinjuku station which allows you to walk to the shopping strip and restaurants. There is also a shuttle bus that takes you to the airport which is very convenient.

The down side is that you need to pay for internet access. Though it is only 300 yen per day but it is per devise. So if you have a number of devises the cost could mount up.

Located in the Shinjuku district, the hotel is well located for travelers who want to explore the Shinjuku area, but there are no really nice restaurants and bars located in walking distance. Interior is not really modern style any more, but in good condition and (of course, the hotel is in Japan...) very clean. Spacious rooms at comparatively reasonable rate. Have staid in more expensive rooms of half (!!) the size. Very well trained, friendly and customer oriented staff, apparently all speak English. Excellent star rated french restaurant Cuisine(s) of Michel Troisgros. Connection to Narita airport by limousine bus which starts at the Hyatt.
