How to Get There
This hotel is located right near a metro station, is easily accessible from Tokyo station. The imperial palace is just a short walk away, and lovely over the weekend.
The staff are extremely helpful and the service is excellent. The rooms themselves are beautiful, with a modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese ryokan aesthetic. It is in a business district, so the view does mainly consist of other buildings, but it does still feel incredibly calm. There is a lounge on every floor, where snacks and drinks are provided free of charge, and breakfast was also available.
The only downside was that the hotel was closing for scheduled maintenance, and I could only stay there for a couple of nights. I will definitely be staying again, and would highly recommend this hotel!
If I could live here, I would. The rooms, the level of service, the rice balls, the smell, the sounds, the welcome are all absolutely brilliant. Add to this the most glorious onsen with its oculus open to the sky (go when it's raining) and you have an even more exquisite hotel. The whole place feels very private and discreet, especially when slipping into the hotel from the underground. Tokyo is an incredibly energy filled place - this is your oasis of calm. The area surrounding the hotel is a little quiet at weekends, but it's not like Tokyo is lacking in things to do. P.S. I really loved the lift.
The level of care and service at the Hoshinoya Tokyo was unparalleled when I saw there as a solo traveler for 7 nights in October 2018. There was a wonderful ratio of staff to guests. They really protect guest privacy by limiting visitors to the entrance and lobby only. Guests can only access their floor and the common areas. From the breakfast server in the living room, to the waitress at dinner and the entrance staff - they all knew what my plans were for the day because everything was noted down and carefully relayed to the other team members. They had suggestions for other activities, but also left me alone when I wanted to enjoy some downtime. The bedroom was super comfy and it really felt like I was staying in a much smaller hotel (I think that was the point of the ryokan in the city concept). Enjoying the hot spring was the highlight of every day. It soothed my aching muscles and relaxed my spirit. The ochanoma was great - snacks and drinks available anytime. The location is very accessible for the airport limousine bus and the subway. It was a pleasure staying at the Hoshinoya and will definitely stay there again soon.
Staying at the Hoshinoya Tokyo is like stepping into a cocoon of peace and tranquility. The indoor/outdoor onsen on the rooftop allows for complete privacy while looking up at the stars. The staff is extremely attentive. The hotel is connected to the Otemachi train station so you can stay out of the cold and rain while walking to the train. Breakfast was varied, either a small snack (onigiri and miso soup) or a full Japanese or Western style meal. Dinner at the restaurant is a real experience and probably the most beautiful meal I have ever had. Strongly recommend.
That's all I gotta say! This hotel is perfection (cons don't compare to the pros)!! It's a peaceful sanctuary in the middle of Tokyo financial center buildings!! When you step inside, it feels like you are staying at Japanese ryokan complete with Tatami mat rooms. With the 24 hour private lounge outside our rooms, we always took time to relax before going up to the onsen. We tried both the Japanese breakfast - delivered and set up in one of the room and the onigiri simple breakfast with miso soup. Both are excellent!
Didn't get to try the activities offered, but they all look very interesting.
-Clean, modern, luxury
-Professional services - I need to send luggages to my next destination hotel, the staff even come to my room with measuring tape, prices and take care of form filling, etc.
Check in and check out also done professionally and smooth
-Comfy bed, excellent sleep quality, excellent blackout
-Very personalized experience, each floor only has 6 rooms. It is not huge like Aman (was considering between the two) that you still feel comfortable walking around in Kimono
-Bathroom is dark, hard to do make up (although I understand the relaxing ambient they are trying to create)
-Location is surrounded by business buildings but excellent thing is, the hotel is connected to underground train station plus lots of restaurants options that are suppose to cater for workers in surrounding areas. ~ I guess this could be considered as pros and cons?
I have stayed in Hoshinoya Fuji and Palace Hotel Tokyo but this is my favorite so far. Please keep building wonderful hotels like this! Arigatou Gozaimasu!
