Hyatt Regency Tokyo is a 28-story hotel located in a group of high-risen buildings in Nishi-Shinjuku. Adjacent to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Shinjuku Central Park, it is located in an area surrounded by nature even it is in the heart of the city.

It is a little less than a 10-minute walk from Shinjuku Station, and it is convenient because there is a free shuttle bus that runs every 20 minutes from the 35th stop in front of Shinjuku West Exit Hulk at the West Exit of Shinjuku Station.

The hotel sign lights up at night, so it is easy to find the hotel.

The hotel also has a limousine bus running between both Narita and Haneda airport, so it is very convenient for those who need to get to the airport. It is connected to Nishi Shinjuku Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line and Tocho-mae Station on the Toei Oedo Line via an underground passage.

Summary

I stayed at “Hyatt Regency Tokyo” this time, but the room that was first introduced was a smoking room, unlike my reservation. I immediately contacted the front desk and waited in the room for a while, then changed to a non-smoking room. However, at this time, because it was an old facility, it was said that there was a room where the smell remained because the room that had been used as a smoking room was cleaned and made into a non-smoking room. I used the gym and pool, but unlike city sports gyms, facilities were beautiful and there were not many people and I was able to spend a relaxing time. This is a hotel I recommend to people who would like to get away from their daily life and have a different experience.
