The Mercure Ginza has a fantastic location, and that its key asset. It is also right on top of a metro station (which is handy but there are metro stations everywhere in Tokyo, its train system must be at the top of any scale). The hotel staff were helpful and spoke good English (which in Japan is not a given). You can walk to any of the many Ginza amenities and shops in no time at all. As Ginza is centrally located in Tokyo, this is a great place to use as your base.
The rooms were not big. But this is Tokyo where space is at a significant premium. Despite their small size I found the rooms reasonably comfortable. The toilet seat is typical Japanese which is great. Everyone should have one at home. Bed quality and cleanliness were also good.
Internet (ethernet, not wifi) is available at NO cost in the room. It is also of excellent quality. That is definitely a big plus. Wi-fi is available (also for no charge) at reception.
I booked the Mercure online and got a very reasonable rate through one of the most popular booking websites.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Tokyo on holiday or business. It is not a corporate hotel but it is perfectly adequate on the things that matter: location, cleanliness, and fast and free internet access.
