How to Get There
Good and nice hotel, everything is fine, except there is no indoor pool and gym facilities making me to reconsider whetherto tay in this hotel or not, otherwise, I will rate this hotel for maximum stars.
Everything about Hoshinoya Tokyo is exemplary. From the staff to the rooms and the unique Ryokan experience - it really is a marvellous experience. The best bed I have slept in in Japan and the open air bath was magic.
After all the hype about the place . One would assume this would have one upped amans urban asset in Tokyo . Boy was I wrong. I get the point that it is an “ experience “ but only if you never visited Japan prior you may be jaded by the fact it is amazing . The truth of the matter the rooms are unimpressive in fact my room smelled and there is no view . Save your money for the aman if you are paying as much as the amans as you will leave with an entirely better and highly satisfied feel.
This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! Although it is expensive it is totally worth it. The hotel is very traditional with Japanese walls, floors, removing shoes at the entrance of the hotel and Japanese low to the ground beds. Their was also a very cool Japanese bath at the top of the hotel that was nice and refreshing after being outside in the cold. The hotel is also very modern with lots of buttons on the toilet and the TV is part of the mirror. The food their is also very delicious, their is lots of free Japanese snacks and bento breakfasts.
In mid November 2018 I and my wife stayed at Hoshinoya Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
The Lobby is located at 2nd floor, so as we arrived at the entrance at Basement 2 we were greeted by the hotel staff and were escorted to Ground floor. Upon arriving at the B2 entrance the layout was quite usual, as in other hotels.
Upon arriving at the entrance at Ground floor, I was quite impressed as there were 3 female staffs dressed in Japanese traditional costumes greeting us in Japanese way and they are quite fluent in English too.
The check-in process at Lobby level was easy and fast, thought at that there were many guests being served as well.
The guest room was spacious, though it was the smallest type (Sakura Type) we picked. There was also separate shower room and bath tube (as some hotels in Japan do share shower and bath tube). The toilet cubical, though a bit narrow, but still comfortable enough.
A common living lounge was also quite nice with many complimentary snacks, sweets and unlimited teas.
The hotel was very clean, quite and warm too. It was late Autumn as I visited. At night the temperature outside could drop to 8°C, but inside the room I just put on light clothes and could sleep comfortably.
I also happened to learn Japanese Tea Ceremony which the hotel offered. The lesson was fun and the tutor was also fluent in English so I didin't have problem in communication. She was also keen to share her knowledge about how to make other types of teas (since the course mainly focusing in making and serving Matcha Tea).
The location : It's within walking distance from Otemachi Station (about 2-3 minutes walking). There's 7-11 store just right next to the hotel and there were also some cafe around.
