I stayed at the Okura for 2 nights while attending a conference at RAI.
The hotel is in a very quiet area on a canal with Japanese Gardens around it.
I had the same problem with this hotel as I have with virtually every '5 star' hotel - it was impersonal, and made even more expensive by being charged exorbitantly for every little extra.
Hotels should take a leaf out of the airline, and indeed Stena Line ferry book - once you pay your room fee everything else should be included. I would always choose such a hotel (do any exist???) even if the initial cost was more.
Otherwise the room had a great view, the room service was fine and the food was fine. The only down side was discovering black mould on the shower curtain just as I wad about to check out.
