After a 14-hour plane ride from New York, we arrived at Narita airport in Tokyo, and took a pleasant train ride into the city, arriving at this lovely hotel. We found the staff very accommodating, however their command of English was not great - but we managed to have them do everything we needed during our stay. Our room was small with very little space to place our clothes or luggage. Having said that, we did enjoy our stay there. The room was extremely quiet because the hotel was not on a main street. This was important to use in order to get a good night sleep after a very long trip and an even longer day. The bathroom was very nice, with a shower and tub and a fully automatic Japanese toilet seat that was heated and had buttons to automatically use the bidet that was part of of the seat. The room was immaculately clean.
The location was excellent. We stayed in the Ginza section of town with large department stores everywhere. The subway was only several blocks away. This convenience allowed us to travel all over Tokyo with ease. Using the subway system was a snap after learning how their ticketing system works.
We had them hold and transfer our bags to our next hotel in Kyoto because we were going to an out of the way Ryoken in Hakone for 2 days, and did not want to be burdened with all of our heavy luggage on the train to Hakone. We just packed enough clothes for two nights and carried that with us. When we arrived in Kyoto days later, our luggage was waiting for us at the hotel. The Japanese are extremely efficient.
I rated this hotel a 9 out of 10. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
