Mercure Tokyo Ginza
Ranked #12 of 97 Hotels / Ryokan in Chuo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2012

I recommend staying at this hotel. It is excellently located in Ginza, which is a very upmarket area of Tokyo. It is centrally located and therefore it is easy to get to any of the sights in Tokyo from here.

There is a subway station in the basement, however this is not on a very convenient line. There are two other subway stations very close by, Ginza is the most convenient. It is so close that we actually walked there with our luggage when it came time to go home, and the information boards in Ginza Station tell you in English which exit you need to use to get to the hotel. All of this means that what ever sights you have decided you want to see in Tokyo, they are easy to get to from here. Just so you know here is some of what we visited and roughly how long it took from the hotel door,

Disneyland - about 30 minutes
Senso-Ji Temple - about 20 minutes
Shibyua - About 20 minutes

so as you can see nowhere is really going to be more than about a 45 minute subway ride away.

There are a couple of local 7/11 type shops near by which sell water and coke, sweets etc, which are cheaper than the mini bar, there is a Mcdonalds next door, and a few very good coffee shops/cafes in the street the hotel is in. In the next few streets are plenty of eating and drinking spots. The staff at the hotel recommended a sushi bar to us which was fantastic, it was called Bikkuri Sushi Ginza and I definitely recommend eating thee at least once.

The room itself was very nice, it was clean and well appointed, not that big, but then you are in the centre of Tokyo so what do you expect. The bathroom was very clean and well appointed, the most advanced toilet I have ever seen!! It had a dial to change the temperature of the seat!

There was free internet via a provided ethernet cable in the room and free wifi in the lobby. We didnt eat at the restaurant, breakfast or dinner, because there are so many other good spots to eat around, so I can't comment on the food.

Just so you know who is submiting this reveiw, we are not backpackers, we do not stay at hostels, we like to stay at very nice private hotels. Yes this hotel isnt the ritz but it is affordable in the centre of Tokyo.

Overall I would say: stay here, it is centrally located, easily walkable from Ginza subway station, and there are loads of facilities within walking distance.

The hotel is situated in ginza, the most exclusive part of tokyo, with convenience stores, fast food restaurants, inexpensive local food places and department stores just a few moments walk from the hotel. it is a very short taxi ride to tokyo main train station, it has an underground train station beneath it. the room was smallish but extremely confortable wth wonderful beds and every amenity, probably better than most mercure hotels i have stayed at in other locations. the internet lan in the room was free and fast. after a hard days touring and shopping it was a great place to come back to relax.

Sightseeing Tip: Tokyo is full of amazing places to visit so be sure to buy your Japan Rail Pass before you leave your home country as it cannot be purchased in Japan, it is definitely worth it. When taking buses or the subway rail, you will need to pay separately but these prices are quite cheap. We found that most sightseeing places could be reached on the JR train lines. One of the best locations in Tokyo is Asakusa because it has a wonderful temple, great shopping and old houses.

The Mercure Tokyo Ginza hotel is a business, western style hotel in the upmarket Ginza neighbourhood in Tokyo.

The Hotel is located in the main luxury shopping and dining district of the Japanese capital and is regarded as a high-end establishment, part of Accor, a French accomodation chain.

If you have stayed at any Mercure hotel anywhere, you probably know that they are the standard for business 4* hotels.

The Mercure Ginza is some 5 minutes away from Ginza Metro Station and around 25min walk to Tokyo Railway Station, making it quite handy.

The rooms are big (huge for Japanese standards) and come equipped with most of the amenities you'd find in a Western 4-star hotel.

The toilets are also huge and have a Japanese-style high tech toilet bowl with toilet seat heating and bidet.

Keep in mind that standard rooms do not have wireless internet and only the superior ones do.

I was lucky enough to get a free upgrade so I could use the internet.

This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Ginza in a quiet street. Checkin was very nice, we asked for a room far from elevators and we got it without any problem. It was a simple room with queen sized bed, small room but normal for Japan standards and enough when you spend most of your day visiting Tokyo. We stayed 4 nights. (we even had the room before the official chekin time). We had breakfast at the hotel (21,000 yens) first day but decided the buffet was really not exceptional and too much food. nearby coffee shops around with nice pastries and much cheaper. you can book without breakfast and decide when you are on site, the cost is not different. We tested the bar: not very fun, but they offer happy hours...Free Wifi only in the lobby area. Some rooms (deluxe or whatever) have internet I think.
all in one: nice and pleasant stay, very clean room, quiet. ideal for what we expected.

Room Tip: Take your breakfast outside if you are not hungry. It is just 2 minutes outside the hotel. Don'...

This hotel is located near the main shopping area in Ginza. It has a good selection of restaurants nearby and stores. The rooms are well equiped with good internet access, they are also quiet and the beds are comfortable.

The staff on the front desk are very polite and are always there to help as best they can.

The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a good selection from eggs, mushrooms to cereals.

The restaurant in the evening was quite limited, so would recommend going out for a meal.

For Business or Pleasure, this is a good hotel in the right area of Tokyo.

I booked at Mercure Tokyo Ginza Hotel based on other travellers' reviews and I wasn't dissapointed! Decent sized rooms and adequate amenities. Several restaurants and convenience stores located just outside the hotel premises. Very near the subway, bus and taxi stops. There's complimentary internet access, too. Definitely recommended!

We stayed at Mercure Ginza in March 2012 with my partner and 1.5 year old son.

Mercure's stand out features are the size of the rooms and its location. It was easily the largest room of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Japan. It's location was a very short stroll from the main streets of Ginza and had many close by 7-11's, coffee shops and restaurants. A walk to the fish market or Tokyo Station / Imperial Palace is not a hard walk at all.

I had ordered a sim card to be delivered to the hotel and this was handed over to me at check-in without asking.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room in the middle of the floor. These are close to the elevator and ice machine.

The walk to JR Yurakucho Station is also fascinating because of all the beautiful shops and building you passing till you reach the Station where the JR Yamanote Loop takes you to all the must see parts of Tokyo in the shortest time.
