Clean, small, but functional. Wifi kept kicking us off randomly for no apparent reason. Beds were somewhat hard but surprisingly comfortable anyway. The A/C settings were all in Japanese but when we figured it out it all worked fine.
Near to both JR and the metro. There are many restaurants and shops near by; if you want Kobe Beef I can recommend Gyu-An.
Most of the shopping around the hotel was high-end and basically all the same stuff we can get at home (cheaper) anyway, so on our next trip we would not pick the Ginza area. We ended up doing most of our purchases in Akihabara, Ueno and Shinjuku, where we found less "fancy" stores that were more to our taste.
Family Mart right across the street, but you might want to walk to the Hanamasa to get your food items and drinks way cheaper.
The Access Narita bus (http://accessnarita.jp/en/home/) was very cheap and easy way to get to the hotel.
Almost the EXACT same breakfast every day. The only difference was the rice dish of the day (hot). Very limited "western" options, and mostly cold food only (various salads). The restaurants is pretty small but we managed to avoid any waiting.
After a few days we regretted paying for the breakfast at all (on top of the already very pricy room rate). I would say the breakfast was the most disappointing part of our stay.
In summary: It was alright, but you can probably get something similar at a lower price if you pick one of the other areas of Tokyo (Shinjuku, Shibuya) instead.
Tip: Get a b-mobile visitor SIM card for your phone. Getting around was so much easier using Google Maps, which can also give you metro routes and prices.
