I stayed here for 2.5 weeks, and will be back the next time I visit Tokyo. The staff is excellent and do speak English. The Annex is across the street from the flag ship hotel. It is very close to the Shimbashi station, and walking distance to the Shidome station. I stayed on the no-smoking, 7th floor and was pleasantly surprised to find a massage chair propped up in front of the flat screen television. This was great to relieve the soreness in my back and calf muscles after walking all over Tokyo. The rooms are small relative to those found in the states, but that was expected as the Annex caters more to business folks in town to make deals. The free internet access was a plus and a key decision to staying here as well. The lights and curtains are controlled from a panel conveniently located at bedside. Every morning, there was a copy of the English newspaper, Daily Yomimuri, attached to my door. My only complaint is that the temperature of the room could not be lowered below 18 degre...
Despite the weak dollar, the price per night was reasonable for a hotel in Tokyo. The central location made it easy to get to the train station, walk to the Ginza. I was pleased to be greeted by an English speaking staff member. The room was well appointed and clean. The restaurant was okay, but their were good ones nearby. The fitness center required going outside to an adjoining building.
Excellent Location!Rooms are small (common in japan) but pretty much comfortables-!!!The Best Feature of this hotel... definitely the STAFF (especially the concergie)
Just short and sweet.... Excellent all around... very helpful, polite, and Friendly staff. comfortable room... a bit small, but very very nice... very comfortable bed!! Great view of the Ginza... very convienent to subway, and just walk close by. I will stay here again when I go back to Tokyo!!
I stay here quite often on trips to Tokyo, and although it's not as fancy as its non-Annex neighbour, the staff is always courteous and welcoming, the rooms spotless, and the location absolutely cannot be beat, especially for the price. The rooms are small by U.S. standards but larger than many other Tokyo-area hotels. In-room (wired) internet is fast and the hot water kettle is a great touch.
Hard to say hideaway situated right on the edges of business and shopping, but we found the Dai-Ichi Hotel Annex quiet, understated and very civilized. First thing, after a tiring plane trip and train ride, there was HOT water waiting for us to make tea and our instant soups (bought at a local shop right near the hotel). We're both tall people, and found the robes and beds comfortable and more than adequate. This was my first time in Tokyo, so I'm probably overawed by the culture, but it was small touches in the way the bed was made, linens folded (and the ever present hot tea water filled each day) that really helped to make our rest time from sightseeing pleasurable and an experience. The hotel is situated a convenient short walk from Shimbashi station (also accessible from the hotel via underground passage), or a bit longer walk from Tokyo Station. Lots of small seafood and other restaurants close by under the train tracks (we had a rollicking great last dinner at a yakatori joint f...
Great location and great value for the money. The rooms were on the small side but still very nice. All amenities were provided in our room. We had a fabulous time. Small and quaint boutique feeling hotel. Across the street from the grander Dai Ichi hotel. A convenient bus service direct from narita stops at the Dai Ichi (across the street). Definitely no complaints here! My husband and I would come back to this same property next time were in Tokyo.
The hotel is very well located - in Ginza district. Get off the Shimbasha subway station \nand the hotel is within 5 minutes walking distance. (By the way, you can take the subway from Narita airport to Shimbasha station. Airport Limousine will also drop you off near the hotel for 3000 yen.) \nThe room is of decent size - with room to plonk down your luggage (say, 2\nlarge suitcases) on the floor. \nThe staff is super-courteous, very very helpful and nice. \nThe carpet in the room, and the wall paper are another matter - the carpet is quite old, and stained. I would not call it very clean. The wallpaper was ripped in the room I stayed in. These are not deal breakers for business travel or vacation travel, but may be so for honeymooners. \nThe TV carried CNN and BBC, so I was happy.
Hotel was extremely close to the Hanzomon subway station. To avoid getting lost, be sure to take the Bancho Exit from the tokyo metro Hanzomon station otherwise you will be trekking several blocks to find the hotel. The room was clean and the staff spoke very good English. Front desk staff was very polite.
Excelente hotel, muy bien situado y con muy buena relación calidad/precio. No dispone más que de cadenas japonesas en la TV de la habitación. ¿Pueden poner también gel de baño de cortesía, por favor?
lo costoso y su ubicacion
La ubicación era buena, pero en las zonas cercanas no había sitios para comer. El hotel estaba limpio y era cómodo. El personal era agradable. Es fácil llegar al hotel con un taxi, ya que todos saben el nombre del hotel. El hotel no ofrece servicio de limpieza las 24 horas. Nos dormimos hasta después de las 2 y no limpiaron nuestra habitación porque era demasiado tarde.
Excelente ubicación a precio razonable, con acceso al subway a 100 m, habitaciones muy amplias y camas anchas No tengo queja todo muy bien.
This hotel was AWESOME! The service we received can't be spoken about enough. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay in Tokyo was problem free. The location is in a prime spot and our room had a great view. Highly recommended!
Positioned near the business district, but the general area - including the Imperial Palace - are very nice. Well equipped and very modern rooms. The bathroom was enormous with entertaining shower equipment! Public areas are huge and drab in places. But we would certainly return to the Imperial.
Great Hotel and great localization. The room was perfect.
I have stayed at hotels all over the world butt he Imperial was fantastic. I have never seen such a polite and professional staff. Everything from the moment I got out of the taxi to the moment I boarded the Narita bus was handled with the utmost proficiency and friendliness. Although there are hotels that are more modern and flashier, nothing beats the Imperial. Great location as well.
not only was the imperial hotel a quietly luxurious place to stay with wonderful service, staying there felt like being part of history. i believe that the original hotel was designed by frank lloyd wright and though the original is no longer standing, pieces from the destroyed hotel have been incorporated into the current lobby. it seems that an effort has been made to retain the frank lloyd wright feeling in the remake of the building. overall, a very nice experience.
Well situated 5 minutes from Kanda station. At walking distance of Tokyo station and Akihabara. The room was clean and well equipped with kitchen (microwave, fridge, hob). The staff was very helpful, though they don't speak much English. Really good value.
Good hotel with affordable price. Location is handy for moving around in Tokyo and the surroundings of the Hotel are casual, with many restaurants and non-turistic shops with true Japanese things. Rooms are tidy and in good condition, small but that's ok if you're in Tokyo for sightseeing or similar (there is no special view from the rooms, just the house next to hotel). Hotel stuff is helpful and do understand english although all of them may not speak it well. I left my luggage in the hotel for a while travelling in other parts of Japan for free. Good hotel if you want to spend most of your days watching the city and need your room mostly for relaxing a bit in the morning & evening and sleeping. No problems, everything was fine.
In spite of the rooms being small, they had a fully equipped kitchenette and plenty of storage space unlike many business hotels in Japan. And it was close to Kanda Station. There was a small supermarket next door and lots of places to eat in the area. It was a little noisy and also quite hard to find initially. It would have been nice to have a computer terminal for use for those of us who don't travel with laptops to check our emails.
Wish there was a bus service straight to the hotel, but other then that it was good since you can take a train with 1 transfer.
i just got back from a 3 night stay at this hotel and came away impressed. i must say i was a little worried about not seeing any reviews when i booked the room a few months ago, but everything was great. the room was clean and the staff was friendly. the room was very small, but i believe most hotel rooms in tokyo are. i was solo and spent much of my time exploring, not sitting in the room anyway. the subway is very close, and is 1 stop from a major station where you can transfer to many different lines and get all over tokyo easily. for directions on how to get to the hotel by subway, make sure that you take the 5th exit out of kojimachi station and go about 1 or 2 blocks down the one way street that looks like an alleyway on the other side of the road. the hotel will be on your left. there is also great little italian resturant on the corner by the subway exit. not much else around there, but again, your only a few stops from ginza, roppongi, or tokyo stations. i would def...
Staff was nice-ish, but a little bit stand-off-ish... maybe tired and overworked the day I was there. Neighborhood was boring, room was extremely small, but had everything you'd need... I was solo, but even if two were there, for anymore than one night, it would be a littl bit cramped. Not much in the way of services. Not a horrible place by any means, but just not what I wanted... small, hard bed, with only one pillow (I like 3 or 4) . Subway is very close, and you'll need it, because the only thing around is a 7-11. I would stay here again, only because the price was very reasonable, and I don't mind using the subway. If you like small and quiet, this is the place... if you want excitement and city life... keep looking
I loved this hotel. The subway station is right down the street; about a 1 minute walk. I basically didn't have to get on the above ground trains a single time when I was there. It was almost too convenient! The room was small, but for the price, you can't beat it. It had everything I needed plus free, super fast internet. I will definitely stay there again.
This hotel is clean, comfortable, and quiet. While the rooms are small compared to a hotel you would find in America, they are still very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel is convenient. Though it is not near any major tourist attractions, it is only a 5 - 10 minute walk to the train station. There are also several restaurants and convenience stores located near the hotel. It is located in a relatively quiet part of Tokyo, and might not be a first choice for someone who wants to experience nightlife in Tokyo. I had a great experience at this hotel, and I would highly recommend it.
Tranquilidad, buena zona y buen trato del personal. El personal debería hablar inglés.
El personal era excelente, sin duda volvería.
Abundante y buen desayuno, incluido en el precio El personal habla muy poco inglés, no hay wifi
buena atencion, buenos servicios y por las tarifas creo que es una muybuena opcion en tokio
La habitación triple teníaun salón tipo suite y era muy cómoda. Las vistas eran impresionantes. Cuando llegamos nos impactó. Por decir algo, el acceso es un tanto complicado. El lobby está en el sexto piso de un complejo de hoteles y oficinas.
Buena ubicacion, confort y un jardin espectacular ninguna
El servicio es de lo mejor Que no esté incluido el desayuno, ya que la habitación tiene un precio elevado
La situacion del hotel es ideal para conocer Tokio Las Habitaciones no corresponden a un 5 estrellas, muy amplias pero yo le pondria 4
habitaciones grandes, bien ubicado, bonitas vistas.detalles en la habitación. Big room, good placed, view beautiful, room details. big hotel one part of the hotel have offices.
Está muy bien comunicado por metro con los distintos puntos turísticos de Tokyo. Que te cobren por el café de la habitación (el té es grátis) y tambien que el uso de internet en el business center sea de pago.
Su ubicación y las vistas desde las habitaciones. No recuerdo nada, lo de visitar Tokiofue una experiencia inolvidable
el trato es escelente, nos hicieron un upgrading sin pagar nada extra lo cual fue excelente. es demasiado grande
El servicio y su amabilidad. No.
El personal es muy atento, hablan bastante buen inglés y tanto el hall como las habitaciones son muy acogedoras, limpias y confortables. Mil detalles como las zapatillas, el pijama o el té en la habitación que hacen que la estancia sea muy agradable. Un remanso de paz enmedio del caos de la ciudad. Una relación calidad/precio fantástica. 100% recomendable! Me hubiera gustado que el desayuno estuviera incluído, o que no fuera tan caro en comparación con el precio de las habitaciones.
Instalaciones modernas y nuevas, con buen gusto y muy práctico. Personal del hotel muy amable y eficiente. No
Disfrutamos del barrio en el que estaba situado el Hotel Niwa. Un montón de sitios para comer y tiendas prácticas. Lavandería y sillones de masaje. Personal amable. Buscaría un hotel que esté aún más cerca de la tienda Bes Line.
Mejor habitación de hotel en la que me he alojado. Las habitaciones fueron diseñadas a conciencia y todo encajaba. Muy limpio y en una excelente ubicación. No mucho; solo que quizás nos gustaría que las habitaciones fueran un poco más grandes.
Hotel muy bien situado, en el centro de Tokyo, bien comunicado con el JR y el metro de Suidobashi a 2 minutos andando. De estilo japonés moderno y decorado con muy buen gusto. Altamente recomendable. Nada
Muy buena ubicación, el personal es excelente, gran relación calidad-precio y cerca de la estación de tren. El desayuno es excelente
Muy buen hotel en Tokio. A tan sólo unos minutos la estación de metro de Suidobashi y Estación JR Suidobashi. Muy buena ubicación. El personal del hotel es muy amable y servicial. Las habitaciones son nuevas y están limpias. Tuve una estancia muy agradable en el hotel Niwa. Recomiendo mucho este hotel.
Agradable y bien gestionado. Las habitaciones están limpias y son modernas. Ubicación, entre las paradas de metro Suidobashi y Jimbocho; no es la mejor área. Era difícil controlar la temperatura de la habitación, a veces hacía muchísimo incluso después de apagar la calefacción.
El personal del hotel es muy amable, la limpieza del hotel es impecable. Las instalaciones son modernas.
Las vistas de la habitación sobre Tokyo son espectaculares (especialmente por la noche). Buena ubicación junto a la estación de metro. Muy limpio.
reservamos habitación tipo japonesa, fue un acierto, una nueva experiencia dormir en futones y con suelo de tatami, Además el hotel está muy nuevo tanto en las zonas comunes como las habitaciones y las vistas desde la misma eran de postal.
Muy bueno en todo, ubicación, comunicación, habitaciones con vistas espectaculares. fantástico.
las vistas y el confort del hotel habitacion de estilo japones encantadora
La ubicación es excelente en el centro de Tokio, a corta distancia de todo por medio de la estación de metro Hanzomon. El personal es muy educado y siempre dispuesto a ayudar. Las habitaciones con vistas al horizonte de Ginza es increíble. Las alfombras necesitan un cambio.
Lo que más me ha gustado ha sido el confort de su habitación así como la localización. La televisión no tenía canales internacionales.
This was a top notch hotel. The rooms were large and very comfortable by Tokyo standards. The staff was very good at what they do and speak great English. The location of this hotel was wonderful from my point of view. While it was for sure in a business area it was a 5 min walk #40or less#41 to Tokyo station which makes it great. The Shinkansen and the Narita stop in Tokyo station which makes for a quick trip to the hotel. If you want they will great you at your train and walk you back. The restaurant was typical of most high end hotels with good food well done but not a value in any way. In the end there are tons of nice inexpensive places within 10 min walk that cater to the worker in the area if you are looking for a little less costly fair. While they can set up tours and the like for you my single experience with that a tour of the fish market left a lot to desired. It way have just been a bad day or a bad guide so I have no idea it others will have better luck. My ro...
Staff was friendly, helpful. Cafe was convenient. Decent location. Good price. Was in the lower dorm, and the downstairs washroom, shower was being renovated. Had to walk up a flight of stairs, pass view of the main lobby to use the washroom. A real pain. Towels should be free of charge. Generally not very clean.
The Palace Hotel was top rate. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was spectacular! Good location away from the city noise and beautiful details at every turn. Very expensive dining but superb food. Definitely a 5-6 star hotel.
Rooms. Service. Price is relatively high
