I booked this hotel through Expedia and got a great price otherwise I couldn't have afforded a place so nice. This hotel is beautiful with a large lobby atrium surrounded by 6 floors of rooms. Rooms are large by Japanese standards and have daily newspapers and small refriderators. It seems there are lots of wedding parties held in the ball rooms on the ground floor as there was always a bride in her wedding dress posing for photos somewhere in the lobby.
Big room, big bathroom, the bed was rather hard but I slept very well. Nice bed linens and pillows.
The hotel is located in a strange place however in the middle of a residential neighborhood and not really close to any restaurants. It is a 10 min walk to two subway stations but there is a free shuttle bus every 20 minutes to and from the Karasuma-Oike subway station (go up the stairs at subway station exit #1 and wait by the curb - not the nearby public bus stop).
All in all everything was perfect and the hotrel staff was first class.
