Summary

I had a very nice stay. Although it is a building built more than 100 years ago, the hotel facilities were new and beautiful, and the rooms were quiet and very comfortable. In addition, the red bricks at the time of construction can be seen as they are in the hotel, so you can feel the history everywhere. There are a number of luxury hotels in Tokyo, but I was able to experience an accommodation like no other.
