Imperial Hotel Tokyo
Ranked #4 of 82 Hotels / Ryokan in Chiyoda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2012

The Imperial Hotel Tokyo is an icon of hotels in Tokyo. There may be numerous international hotels, but this hotel has "tradition" (over 120 years old) and yet, has done regular renovation and refurbishing, keeping it up to date with today's comforts.

Located in the heart of downtown Tokyo and in front of the Hibiya Park. Walking distance to Ginza, Imperial Palace and Tsukiji Fish Market.

The staff are courteous and speaks several languages, which is a relief for international travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Hibiya Park has wonderful view of the Imperial Palace as an added bonus.

The Imperial Palace hotel is a great place to stay in Tokyo. It is definitely one of the more pricier options, but very well located. There are two main buildings and I generally stay in the "older" one, but you could never tell from the inside. Everything is top notch.

The staff is excellent and their English is generally exceptional. My favorite aspect of this hotel is the expansive lobby. Its a great place to meet with your group and chat while everyone gathers. It is also a great people watching area!

Like most hotels in Japan, the rooms are tastefully done, very clean, and comfortable. The breakfast buffet restaurant on the 17th floor is great and the food very well prepared.

My only complaint is that the gym does not open until 6 AM. For many jet-lagged travelers, a 4 AM (or even 5 AM) opening would be preferred. But unlike US hotels, the Imperial likes to have staff on hand to make sure everything is clean and tidy. As a result, 6 it is...

Room Tip: Ask for high floors and a view of the Imperial Palace area (but it usually costs more)

This hotel has its long history and parts of the main building survived WW II. Imperial Palace can be seen not too far and shopping in Ginza is within easy walking distance.

The service is exceptional. Their Guest Relations can do everything for you and would go out of their way to service you. The hotel has 2 buildings... the Main building and Tower Building which is newer.

The hotel has so many good restaurants, Japanese, Tempura, Sushi, Chinese, French, etc.

Room Tip: Room with Imperial Palace view.

I was there in a business trip in November 2011. Our business partner expressly asked to book for this hotel although we thought it is very expensive. The depreciated yen, at that time, made the hotel more expensive than predicted. Nevertheless, the quality of the services did a value to the price paid. The attention for every detail in the room, at the reception, in all areas of the hotel was at top. I liked the most the electronic part of every device in the room (curtains, lights, WC - scheduled to be warmed at a certain hour if desired).

Was here on a business trip last May-June 2010. The hotel is strategically located in the center of the business district, but still a short walk away from the shopping district and restaurants. The rooms were very spacious, clean and well maintained. In true Japanese fashion, the bathroom is an attraction on its own with temperature controls for toilet bedet, water level and temp control on the tub, fully automated toilet seat controls, etc. The visit was an absolute delight.

This hotel was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and many celebrities and politicians have stayed there. You can understand why. In addition to the usual excellent service provided in most establishments in Japan, it offers plush comfort, rooms that are large by Tokyo standards, and even a decent size swimming pool. It's worth the expensive rate at least for the first night of a business trip, to sleep off your jet lag and prepare for meetings.

I was particularly amazed by the service (hospitality), professionality and friendliness of their staff. From reception, bell boy, waitress, security, etc -everyone was very helpful and friendly. I was told it is the oldest hotel in Tokyo and still one of the best, and among the most expensive. I had bento for lunch, it was special! I had dinner at the Nadaman Japanese Cuisine (one floor below the lobby, at the arcade), and the dinner there was also special! Must try. I attended event at the ballroom in the hotel, they served one of the best roast beef. Very special.
