Location, service, pool staff
I was only in Tokyo for two days. I have always wanted to see the City so I stayed as a long lay-over. I have traveled quite a bit and mostly stay at high end hotels. The room was amazing. It was large, clean and the bed was perfect. I think the one thing that stood out was the service. I mostly felt with the front desk manager Tetsuro Nakamura. Everyone at the hotel seemed to really appreciate their job and enjoy helping their guests. Nothing comes to mind
The views from our room were good, it was nice and clean. I thought for a hotel of this standard the staff would be able to understand English a bit more, not very well situated for shopping more of a business hotel. No english Tea,
The location not far from Ginza and the metro station Shimbashi/Ginza is useful. There isn't a gym. And the Internet isn't a wifi but cable. I carry an iPhone which is useless without a wifi. Breakfast selection should be changed daily.
The view from the room was beautiful, I loved the bathroom window which could be made seeing through, so you could enjoy the view from the shower. No complaint, very satisfied.
The design is lovely and the location can't be beat. The hotel is high up and it is great to look down on Tokyo. The pillows were uncomfortable which took away a little bit of ease of sleep.
Great location very close to main shopping area in Ginza. Room on the small side.
Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. None.
This was a top notch hotel. The rooms were large and very comfortable by Tokyo standards. The staff was very good at what they do and speak great English. The location of this hotel was wonderful from my point of view. While it was for sure in a business area it was a 5 min walk #40or less#41 to Tokyo station which makes it great. The Shinkansen and the Narita stop in Tokyo station which makes for a quick trip to the hotel. If you want they will great you at your train and walk you back. The restaurant was typical of most high end hotels with good food well done but not a value in any way. In the end there are tons of nice inexpensive places within 10 min walk that cater to the worker in the area if you are looking for a little less costly fair. While they can set up tours and the like for you my single experience with that a tour of the fish market left a lot to desired. It way have just been a bad day or a bad guide so I have no idea it others will have better luck. My ro...
I like the fact that there is enough room to open a suit case and still have room to walk around it!!! Most small to medium size hotels in Tokyo are so small that you can only go to bath and sleep. Ginza Monterey offered a little more room so you can work on your computer and feel comfortable.
If you want to see all over the city by metro otel is the best one
Perfect location in Ginza. Our non-smoking room was once a smoking room. We could still smell it in the carpet.
Clean hotel with decent size rooms and bar - quiet location but very close to Ginza shopping & restaurant district - good access to multiple metrolines
good location, easy to get the train station and many food store surrounding hotel. lobby hotel very small
Helpful staff Small room, Restaurant permanently closed to public..
Breakfast, location. To small room like for 4 star hotel. Very high price but probably this is a standard for Ginza. Only one TV chanell in English.
In the heart of 'fifth avenue' (Ginza) of Tokyo. Quiet rooms and free internet; daily deliverance of an english paper. Skilled personal and by elvevator entrance to the subway - it all made it a pleasure to stay in this hotel.
quietness and location
Location, good bed, cleanliness Small room for the price
Staff were very helpful, excellent location in Ginza. Good value for money.
Close proximity to subway station and multitude of restaurants and shopping in Ginza. Secure WiFi in every room, free for rewards members. The breakfast buffet was great, with many choices of local and western cuisine. My omelette was cooked to perfection! The beds were a bit firm. The toilets weren't as fancy as other Japanese hotels (not heated).
The room was small even by Japanese standards. Staff was nice. TV only had Japanese channels. Breakfast provided was good. Value for money was not there. My friend stayed at Gracery nearly next door for $100 cheaper and a much bigger room.
The location was excellent and the airport bus delivers you directly to the hotel door. Some of the staff were uncaring and had no knowledge of the area.
Friendly staff despite the language barrier Now that Tokyo is becoming a touristic area, the staff shoulkd learn the manners of good service.
Location in Ginza The room and bathroom were the smallest room I have been for a very long time. Everything is also industralised and calibrated (to reduce cost), which makes it more like a chicken battry than a hotel room.
location was easy to walk from for transportation around the city attractions no pool
Only the fact that we had Japan Hato tours that did a pickup from this hotel location and there were a few folks at the information center that were nice and very helpful The room was awful - 1. Shower curtain was dirty and had hair on it from god know how many previous travelers!! I asked the manager to change it and they did not execute it well, they forgot! When I asked again they replaced it but only this time they put the shower curtain inside out...Japanese attitude is supposed to be all clean and perfect and this was definitely not it! 2. We were offered free breakfast due to the shower curtain situation which was a nice gesture, but honestly the breakfast was not so great 3. The room was really really small and the 3rd bed that we got was broken.. We paid like $250 a night or so and this was so not worth anything penny, will not recommend it anyone.
Great location, wonderful staff, great breakfast. Spacious room for Tokyo
Wifi password always wrong, I could not use wifi.
Just short and sweet.... Excellent all around... very helpful, polite, and Friendly staff. comfortable room... a bit small, but very very nice... very comfortable bed!! Great view of the Ginza... very convienent to subway, and just walk close by. I will stay here again when I go back to Tokyo!!
I stay here quite often on trips to Tokyo, and although it's not as fancy as its non-Annex neighbour, the staff is always courteous and welcoming, the rooms spotless, and the location absolutely cannot be beat, especially for the price. The rooms are small by U.S. standards but larger than many other Tokyo-area hotels. In-room (wired) internet is fast and the hot water kettle is a great touch.
Hard to say hideaway situated right on the edges of business and shopping, but we found the Dai-Ichi Hotel Annex quiet, understated and very civilized. First thing, after a tiring plane trip and train ride, there was HOT water waiting for us to make tea and our instant soups (bought at a local shop right near the hotel). We're both tall people, and found the robes and beds comfortable and more than adequate. This was my first time in Tokyo, so I'm probably overawed by the culture, but it was small touches in the way the bed was made, linens folded (and the ever present hot tea water filled each day) that really helped to make our rest time from sightseeing pleasurable and an experience. The hotel is situated a convenient short walk from Shimbashi station (also accessible from the hotel via underground passage), or a bit longer walk from Tokyo Station. Lots of small seafood and other restaurants close by under the train tracks (we had a rollicking great last dinner at a yakatori joint f...
Great location and great value for the money. The rooms were on the small side but still very nice. All amenities were provided in our room. We had a fabulous time. Small and quaint boutique feeling hotel. Across the street from the grander Dai Ichi hotel. A convenient bus service direct from narita stops at the Dai Ichi (across the street). Definitely no complaints here! My husband and I would come back to this same property next time were in Tokyo.
I stayed here for 2.5 weeks, and will be back the next time I visit Tokyo. The staff is excellent and do speak English. The Annex is across the street from the flag ship hotel. It is very close to the Shimbashi station, and walking distance to the Shidome station. I stayed on the no-smoking, 7th floor and was pleasantly surprised to find a massage chair propped up in front of the flat screen television. This was great to relieve the soreness in my back and calf muscles after walking all over Tokyo. The rooms are small relative to those found in the states, but that was expected as the Annex caters more to business folks in town to make deals. The free internet access was a plus and a key decision to staying here as well. The lights and curtains are controlled from a panel conveniently located at bedside. Every morning, there was a copy of the English newspaper, Daily Yomimuri, attached to my door. My only complaint is that the temperature of the room could not be lowered below 18 degre...
The hotel is very well located - in Ginza district. Get off the Shimbasha subway station \nand the hotel is within 5 minutes walking distance. (By the way, you can take the subway from Narita airport to Shimbasha station. Airport Limousine will also drop you off near the hotel for 3000 yen.) \nThe room is of decent size - with room to plonk down your luggage (say, 2\nlarge suitcases) on the floor. \nThe staff is super-courteous, very very helpful and nice. \nThe carpet in the room, and the wall paper are another matter - the carpet is quite old, and stained. I would not call it very clean. The wallpaper was ripped in the room I stayed in. These are not deal breakers for business travel or vacation travel, but may be so for honeymooners. \nThe TV carried CNN and BBC, so I was happy.
Excellent Location!Rooms are small (common in japan) but pretty much comfortables-!!!The Best Feature of this hotel... definitely the STAFF (especially the concergie)
Despite the weak dollar, the price per night was reasonable for a hotel in Tokyo. The central location made it easy to get to the train station, walk to the Ginza. I was pleased to be greeted by an English speaking staff member. The room was well appointed and clean. The restaurant was okay, but their were good ones nearby. The fitness center required going outside to an adjoining building.
The room was small but clean and well-appointed. I don't know about the necessity of including a pants press and a dehumidifier in a room barely big enough for two people and a bed but I'm sure they know their own audience. Breakfast was simple Japanese standard. Staff was very good and attentive.
This was my first time in Japan, but I heard about the hotels beforehand. The rooms are small because you are in an overpopulated city, so if you manage your expectations it is really very pleasant. The hotel was clean and each floor and your room are secured by access card. Staff was very friendly and accomodating as well. You are a short walk from 2 subway lines, the imperial palace, hibiya park, and Tokyo's version of Times Square. Overall, I enjoyed it and if I go back I will strongly consider staying there again.
