“quite a okej!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Celestine, Minato, is perhaps not the first hotel you think of for a stay in Tokyo, if you are not here for business. BUT, if you, like myself and my hubby appreciate easy access from the "provinces"(train stations), hotel pickup by tour-buses and airport limousine drop-off, then this place might be the one for you. No glizz and glam in the neighborhood around here, but we did find some nice, local food joints.
The hotel is quite " A Okej", as far as I am concerned.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms have a view, we chose a super large room, with a building in front of us... The h...

We stayed twice in this hotel in our trip to Japan. The big bonus for us, was that the shuttle bus to and from the airport delivers you right in the hotel! We are a big luggages travelers, so the bus was very handy for us, since our 4 luggages would not fit in a taxi!

The location was ok, not in the middle of the city buzz, but with 2 stations within walking distance(2 to 5 min walking). Also, they have a good 24hs restaurant, 7eleven, Family Mart nearby! Quiet neighborhood!

Rooms are not big, but clean, comfort bed, pillows and the air condition / heater worked perfectly! Free wi-fi.
Bathroom was also clean, with shower curtain ( I prefer glass door shower), and all amenities you need!
Breakfast was around $15, and you can have Japanese or western options. Well served!
Lounge on 14th floor was very cosy with a welcome coffee, water and biscuits!

Staff speaks English and always ready to help!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms close to the elevator, they have long corridors!

Hotel's location was very good, with excellent transport links (up to three stations within walking distance). I was given a room on a high floor with quite good views. Admittedly, the room was on the small size but then again most Japanese hotel rooms are! However it was very clean - always a good thing!
Another positive the buffet breakfast which was quite adequate and the very professional front desk staff. All in all I would recommend Celestine Hotel as a wise choice for a mid-priced hotel in Tokyo - it certainly 'does what it says on the tin'!

Stayed 2 nights on business and found the Celestine to be a great choice in the area. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The location at Mito station provides easy access and multiple options for shopping and dining. Rooms are rather small, but OK with local standards and very clean. Breakfast is fine providing a variety of japanese and western options. Good value.

My fiance and I loved the location. We prefer a quiet home base to return to, an easy way to get there (2 subway stations nearby), and a smattering of liveliness within walking distance (Tokyo tower and a "restaurant row" within a couple of street blocks).

Once inside the hotel, you will immediately see the hotel is modern, updated and impeccably clean. Perhaps it wasn't the right time of the year (Octobor), but we didn't come across any kids in the hotel -- the clientele seemed primarily to consist of businessmen and some tourists. This is a big plus for those who appreciate tranquility, as we do.

The hotel rooms, while small (but not by Tokyo standards), are clean and updated. We didn't see faded carpets or dinged up furniture that you sometimes get in older, bigger hotels that rely on their brand recognition. The AC/thermostat was modern (giving you the ability to set the temperature once and forget about it), and the hotel includes fast wifi on the premises.

The front desk reception / concierge staff was very helpful with excellent English skills and they helped us with all sorts of requests, from locating a laundromat to finding a good shabu shabu restaurant. The one service oddity we experienced was when we asked for help finding something to eat late our first night in, the front desk staff didn't tell us there was a street consisting of probably 30-50 restaurants just a couple of blocks away and instead directed us to a place about 20 minutes away with only 3-5 choices (mostly izakaya with terrible food).. we had to discover the restaurant area on our own a couple of days later.

The gem of our stay which we really enjoyed was the hotel lounge, which I believe is on the 14th floor. It consists of a beautiful and large "living room" like the kind you might expect in a boutique ski resort -- this was the perfect place to bring a newspaper or laptop and catch up on email or read the daily news. They have a nice coffee machine there that makes good cappuccino/expresso (free). Immediately outside this lounge was a large outdoor patio area that I found to be ideal for smoking my cigars and getting in the vacation mood.

In all, we enjoyed the hotel's cleanliness, excellent service, convenient and safe location, and the surprisingly enjoyable lounge. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed in this hotel from 28-31 December for 3 nights, We booked a superior double non smoking and we were assigned room 1734 where we could get a partial view of the rainbow bridge and Fuji TV station. The hotel is shared with an office building and rooms are from level 14 onwards.

What I liked about this hotel?
1.The superior double is spacious enough for 2 ladies with 2 huge luggages and a lot of shopping bags. Do not book the smaller rooms. It comes with complementary toiletries of great quality. (Kose after shave for men, Mikimoto cosmetics, etc...)

2. It is located 30 minutes by car from Haneda airport, 10 minutes away from Tsukiji and Ginza. The nearest metro station are Mita station which is a 5 mins walk and Tamachi Station which is 10 mins away. Tamachi links directly to Shibuya and Shinjuku.

3. Level 14 provides complementary drinks (Tea, Coffee machine with Cappuccino and Water Dispenser) for 24 hours. There is an ice dispenser located on your room level and a vending machine as well.

4. Wi-fi is available for free through out the hotel, which is not common for Japanese hotels

5. Service staff spoke great english. They were very helpful when we did a late check in, early check out at 4am and in providing directions and assistance in making reservations to places that we needed help on

What I did not like about this hotel
1. Breakfast did not come cheap. However, after reading reviews on the breakfast, we did not pay for breakfast.

2, The corridors is very long. We need to walk around 2-3 lanes in order to reach the elevator

3. There is no food around the hotel as this is located in the business district. There is a convenient store located about 2 mins away and food is nearer to the train stations.

Apart from that, I do love this hotel for the accessibility and great service staff. If you are looking to stay somewhere near Ginza, Odaiba and Tsukiji, this would be a great place.

Room Tip: Lower floors may have a better view.

If you need to be in this part of Tokyo, this hotel is a very good base. For a start the room was a decent size, bed very comfortable, bathroom very reasonable for Tokyo standards, internet excellent and free. Lounge on 14th floor is an added bonus. breakfast buffet was very pretty decent for 1,500 yen. Service generally seemed fine. There is a nice Italian restaurant on the ground floor at the back of the hotel which I only found on the last of my 5 nights!! 3 minute walk to subway. Other restaurants, shops etc about 10 minutes walk away.
