I stayed here for 2 weeks and would say it as a decent hotel in Heart of city ... (Though Tokyo's heart is quite BIG) , easy access to every where ... Tonnes of restaurants and shopping around .... But if you like to be lazy on weekends and stay indoors ??? Ooopss u dont have anything to do , TV broadcast only 2 English channels ... CNN and BBC not the best stuff to keep you hooked up for entire day ?
Very convenient for a business traveller to Japan. There is a direct hotel bus from Narita Airport to the hotel - 3000 yen each way,
Hotel rooms are small, but for Japan decent size room, good bathroom, very quiet, very clean (I had specifically requested a non-smoking room ... probably a good idea in Japan as smoking in restaurants and hotels is still widespread. Breakfast was included as booked early on the web, . Buffet breakfast was so-so not the best .... The double bed was a bit small (1.4 m wide) and too hard - There is the Tobu department store right next door which has superb restaurants including a fantastic sushi bar on the 11th floor - much much cheaper. Free fast internet access in the room ....
One more thing experienced a 5.5 scale earth quake .... didnt got any response from Staff ? dont know if 5.5 is quite usual here...
