Awesome hotel. Fantastic style and well maintained for its age. You don't get to see too many hotels like this anymore.

Positives - service and staff are great, room size very big, beds nice and firm, breakfast restaurant on 5th floor (this is the reception level) is nice and quiet. I really liked the fact it isn't crisp and new, it has character.

If you like sharp, brand new hotels, with very modern architecture, you will struggle with this one.

I loved this hotel! When you step through the front door, you may feel like you've gone through a time warp back to the 1960s based on the décor, but the interior of the hotel is beautifully maintained and quite spacious (and when we were there it was decorated for Christmas). I found the room and service impeccable with numerous amenities for guests. Since it is right across the street from the US Embassy, English is commonly used. The exterior of the hotel could use a little paint but you don't even think about it once inside. There is no doubt I would stay here again and I hope to soon.

This hotel was absolutely spectacular, and the breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had (includes a Mimosa bar!). I was here on business for 10 days, and there's really nothing to complain about as far as the hotel itself. The service is impeccable, the room is comfortable and large, and the bath and amenities were superb. My only complaint would be that it is in the embassy area, so basically that means there are not a whole lot of shops or restaurants around, and there's no night life in the immediate area. You have to grab a cab or metro to the more active areas, which, in Tokyo I'd say is a little inconvenient since there are so many other areas that are full of nightlife. But, if you like a nice room with peace and quiet and all the amenities, then Hotel Okura is the place.
*Also, one benefit is that everyone (cab drivers, buses from airport, etc.) knows of this hotel. You just say Hotel Okura (hoteru oh-ku-ra) and they'll know exactly where it is.

The hotel provides excellent service. Understated. Needs upgrades of the lobby and public facilities. Over the past 20 years the lobby remains the same - same furniture and ambiance. Still it feels like home in Tokyo.

This is a lovely hotel, with all the necessary accoutrements for relaxation and tranquility in Tokyo. Located in the embassy area of the city, it's close to a small park, nearby shopping in Roppongi district. Great spa amenities, good restaurants. My executive suite was lovely, Room 1040, with coffee/tea machine, minibar. Love the traditional sliding Japanese window shades. Whenever in Tokyo on business I always stay here. Did have excitement of early morning earthquake (5/Richter scale) on departure day 5/5/14. Beautiful Japanese garden off Terrace Restaurant. Recommend for those appreciating Japanese tradition.

Expected much better rooms and was disappointed for the price paid. Too expensive and the rooms are not well maintained. In addition, our stay was impacted by "VVIP guest" visiting from US and staying at the same hotel. Only good thing about the hotel was the location.
