How to Get There
Stayed here the 1st week of June. We're a family of 4 - 2 young kids under the age of 10. We travel quite often and have been to Japan many times before. We've stayed at the Grand Hyatt and Hyatt regency in the past and loved their amenities. we decided to stay at the Shiodome this time due to it's location. Wow, we were not disappointed. The hotel itself is very well kept, clean and modern. I would say on a daily basis there's about 3-4 staff to 1 guest ratio. Very attentive and we were always greeted with a smile! The hotel is very convenient to several metro lines and a mere 10 minute walk to Ginza. the rooms are not very big so we had to stack our luggage but the bathroom has a large shower and tub combo that works well for families with young children. Very comfy beds. Great city view and insulated walls. There is a family mart on the metro level of this hotel and several restaurants nearby. overall, we are very happy with this hotel and will recommend it to friends and family!
Stayed for 4 nights at the Royal Park Hotel Shiodome in a Premium Floor Standard King room.
Check in was easy; we arrived early and they stowed our bags without issue. There is a ¥1,000 (~$10USD) charge upon check-in.
The Shimbashi train situation is about a 5 min walk away.
The room is a good size but taken up by a massive king-size bed; probably what a California king is like (what we realized is they put 2 of their twins together to make this bed). So bags get tight because of this. The room is a bit dated (wall and carpet colors are from an era gone by; furniture is dark and heavy feeling) but the amenities are quite nice. I stayed on the top floor so the ceilings were very high. This gave the room a slightly bigger feel.
The bed, like I said, is ginormous. You won’t even know there’s someone else in it with you. It’s firm, which I love. There is, what I think is a water pillow (again, an era long since gone) but with the option of a normal pillow.
There is a small closet to hang clothes on and apparently a laundromat downstairs - though we didn’t check it out. An iron is also in the room.
Outlets throughout the room but without direct USB ports on the headboard.
The safe is a standard size that fits up to a paper-sized folder.
There are no true blackout shades. The room was pretty bright in the 5am hour.
The bathroom is also a bit tight for 2 people. But you have everything you need in it, including shower caps...the first I’ve seen on this trip to Japan. Again a bit dated compared to some of the other hotels I’ve stayed in.
Breakfast was a fair mix of east meets west but with some challenge if you have to leave to go to the bathroom or get something out of your room. Lesson of the day: try not to leave until you’re actually finished. It’s certainly not the nicest breakfast I’ve had in a hotel; it’s not the worst.
Live jazz in the lobby bar Thursday through Saturday, if you’re into that kind of thing. They also play jazz throughout the hotel on a regular basis. Also an amazing jazz club called the Cotton Club about a 30 min walk from here (or less by train).
There is a money exchange in the lobby, which is very convenient (rate was so-so), but convenience won out.
The room is pretty quiet overall; never had any trouble with noise. Never had any problems with a smoke smell anywhere in the hotel.
If you stay here, know that you are about 20-30 min, by train, away from most things. As long as that doesn’t bother you, this area will be just fine. If you want to be in the thick of it...you will not find it in this part of Tokyo.
I know I have a lot of ‘meh’ comments, but I would recommend this hotel. It was an overall enjoyable stay.
We chose this hotel because of its central Tokyo location and is situated above a large subway station that had direct connections to Haneda Airport. The Tokyo underground system is very complicated as there are several companies offering train service and passes are not interchangeable between systems. For example, the Japan Rail pass does not allow use of the main Tokyo subway system but has limited rail line coverage on a separate system. Some trains and buses to both airports are covered by JR pass so it is a bit bewildering and requires careful study before travel.
The signage in the subway for the hotel is dismal, the hotel name was covered at the outdoor sunken courtyard connecting the subway line transfer – Hotel is across the open courtyard and has escalators going up to the entrance. Have the hotel name in English and Japanese and ask directions at one of the convenience stores if lost.
The hotel lobby is on the 15th floor after taking the elevator up from the small reception area. There are restaurants and bars on this level and the breakfast room offers lovely views of Mount Fuji in the distance. The Japanese food items are much nicer than the western breakfast items, so it is wise to venture outside your usual comfort zone! The bar items are expensive compared to nearby pubs.
The rooms were modern, clean, well equipped and large by Japanese standards. North Americans may find them a bit cramped, but they are more than adequate for a good night’s sleep after a busy day of exploration.
We did not have dinner at the hotel as there are several nearby restaurants as well as good food options on the subway connectors. It is only a two stops on the subway to the Ginza and the red line offers direct connection to the Shinjuku area with the national gardens, shopping, and “piss ally”
This is my second stay at this hotel. I came back here because of the great location. It is a short walking distance from Shimbashi station ( one stop from Tokyo) and the great thing is the limousine buss from Narita Airport stops right at the hotel. So no need to schlep your heavy luggage through the train stations (especially the Tokyo station is huge and very crowded). When you get off at Simbashi station after your sightseeing, venture out to the other side (not the side the hotel is), there are many cheap Japanese eats favoured by office workers
there. I opted for a standard room so it was on a smaller side but I've stayed in smaller rooms elsewhere. Lastly, but not least, the staff were professional and courteous.
I stay in this hotel regularly. Last stayed in late May 2019. Love the location. It is conveniently located close to Shimbashi and Shiodome train stations. Getting to Haneda airport, Tokyo station, Ginza, Shinjuku, Shinagawa is easy. Walking distance to Ginza. Good room size for a hotel in Tokyo (Economy double room 18-20sqm). Room is adequately designed. Wifi in room is good. Access to room is secure and safe (your card leads you to your floor only). Staff are helpful but perhaps can have more personal touch : I checked in on my birthday. It's ok when the staff couldn't upgrade me successfully but staff could have added some personal warmth with a birthday greeting (Haneda immigration officer being so serious also offered her birthday greeting).
