There was a bathroom on the right and a dressing room on the left. The room is 51 square meters wide, but this bathroom and dressing room felt especially spacious.

There was a light switch with a button to call for the staff.

The room was luxurious. There was a sofa, dining table and a work desk in addition to the bed.

IMG_0731(32) copy

The bed was semi-double size and was just the right size for me. It was a bed that made me feel as if I was floating on the clouds and I was able to sleep very well. The pillows were soft and big.

There was a table between the beds with a telephone, memo set and a remote control prepared on top.

There was an office building right in front of my room, so the view was not the best. However, since the hotel is close to the Imperial Palace, depending on the room you may be able to see Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace.

There is an indoor swimming pool on the 5th floor which guests can use free of charge. Normally, the hotel will lend out swim-suites and newspapers, but due to Covid 19 they were not lending them out.

Hotel Surroundings

Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace are within walking distance, so you can wake up early in the morning and go for a run. I got the impression that there are many cafes nearby. Also, since Yurakucho and Ginza are within walking distance, you can enjoy shopping and eating until late at night. There are many delicious Italian restaurants and izakaya restaurants that are open until late at night. Since the station is also nearby, there were many convenience stores around the hotel. You will have no inconveniences in terms of transportation.

IMG_0731.jpg (26)

“TOKYU PLAZA” within walking distance from the hotel.

Summary

I had a very nice stay at this hotel. The security and the measures against corona were firmly established giving me a very good impression. From the moment when I entered the hotel to the very last moment when I left the hotel, each response from the staff were polite and comfortable. In addition, the guest rooms are spacious and relaxing to spend time in. There were delicious drinks and sweets prepared in the room which I was very satisfied with. I felt as if I was at a resort when I was swimming in the pool. The staff were very attentive at the pool and gym. There were not many guests at the restaurant where I had breakfast, so I was able to relax and enjoy my meal. I would love to stay here again.
