As with the other reviews the service is impeccable. I have stayed in many a 5 star around the world but never had such attentive service.The reception might not seem as grand as the name or history of this hotel implies but it is huge, shiny and very smart. I only say this because of other reviews. It wasn't an issue for me.
The hotel rooms are not styled in a modern way but more from colonial days but nothing faded everything was super smart. The hotel bathrooms are great, modern, the shower and bath superb. The room sizes are comfortable and spotlessly clean. I loved the white pyjamas provided.The hotel is conveniently positioned for strolling, for trains, a walk in the park across the road and those delightful restaurants under the arches along the trainline to Tokyo station. Try the Japanese interpretation of italian. Food is to die for.
Great hotel. Close to shopping and restraunts. Room was large for Tokyo standard and bed was comfortable. I loved the message chair in the room. Only problem was after my long flight I tried to check in 1 hour early at 1pm. They charged me 1000 yen for early check in even though my room was ready. Otherwise, great hotel.
I have stayed at Monterey 3 different times. It is clean, nice, affordable and close to Metro and Tokyo Station (equivalent of about 7-8 city blocks and we walk this with our luggage). Also a Starbucks and McDs nearby. Good restaurant "The Kitchen" across the street.
Excellent check in service, Ginger was so helpful with maps and information. The rooms contain more than mentioned on the website. They do have toiletries and hair dryer and in room safe. NonEngkish TV (that we could find). Plenty of buses near by and underground railway. Easy walking access to lots of temples including Kiyomizu Temple.
The stairs with luggage were a bit of a challenge.
Room was very comfortable and the best shower. They looked after our washing (and drying) for 500 yen. It was great to come home after a long day out to find the washing in our room. My only comment here is that, it would be nice if it was folded.
the room is rather tiny, especially if you shop a lot and has large suitcases, there's virtually nowhere to move about in the room. Great location though, walk distance to the metro, major stations, shopping streets and department stores. Staff are fine. Lobby on the third floor, a bit awkward. English doesn't seem to get you around in Japan.
Newly opened in October of 2006. We are located right in the center of the world famous shopping area of Ginza. It is very …More
Think Travelodge/Premier Inn, and you have it about right.
Despite the glitzy front hall, this is a budget "dormitory" hotel in central Tokyo. That in itself is an achievement, as accommodation costs in Tokyo are mostly exorbitant. The rooms are clean and well laid out, but they are compact and many have views onto the central stairwell - in mine there was only half a window, the rest having been blocked out by a wall. Beyond that, facilities are limited - a few films at 1000 yen each, and CNN as the only English TV channel. If you just want a decent bed in central Tokyo at a good price, this is the place for you. If you are looking for facilities beyond that, then stump up the cash and stay somewhere more upmarket.
"Great location in Ginza very well designed rooms."
A great new hotel convenient to everything in Ginza. Rooms comparatively spacious by Tokyo standards. Hotel staff pleasant,helpful and spoke very good English.only been opened a few months. Can't comment on restaraunt as we didn't eat there with so much else on offer in downtown Ginza. Highly recommended hotel.
High on opulence and popularity, Ginza was one of the city's first districts to implement Western-style brick buildings and gas lamps. Set in the heart of the city, it is the place for those who don't mind crowds, and serious spenders. But it takes very little to see Asia's largest fish market, a traditional kabuki play, or the latest gadgets at the Sony building.
