How to Get There
The Shangri-La Hotels Group are without a doubt my favourite hotel group, and this asset my favourite property within their chain.
The first that hits you when you enter ANY Shangri-La hotel is the smell. The ambiance is set by the familiar sweet smell that envelops you and makes you aware that you’re in a Shangri-La hotel.
Check in is smooth and hassle free with a smile.
The rooms are large, modern and clean. I had a great view of Tokyo station and the Marunouchi side of Tokyo.
Coming back from business meetings. You really enjoy the bar on the lobby floor where there is a good choice of cocktails, wines and drinks.
Had dinner at a Nadaman. This is a restaurant that does everything solidly but nothing specialised. It’s a great intro into good Japanese food.
Absolutely recommend the hotel and all it’s establishments within.
We have stayed in a few Shangri La hotels and this one was excellent. From the moment we arrived until we left - nothing, and I mean nothing, was too much trouble for the amazing staff. As most of the reviews here say this hotel is so well situated being right next to Tokyo Station (good luck with finding your way around- do what we did and hire a guide to show you Tokyo’s hot spots and they can also tell you how to get around the station!). We were in a club room and so breakfast was in the Horizon lounge- extra lovely omelettes! The happy 2 hours - 6pm until 8pm meant drinks and small items of high quality food. The only thing is that this hotel is eye wateringly expensive - which we did know before we booked but £15 for a glass of house wine in their bar meant we took full advantage of happy hour in the Horizon lounge! We did love it here though - lovely room - great shower - comfortable beds. If you are in Tokyo and your budget can stretch to it - this is the one for you.
We had a two night stay with my wife at this beautiful hotel. The service and the staff where fantastic so cordial and polite and helpful.
The rooms were very spacious and beautifully decorated. Attention to detail excellent.
The bellman Suraj Sangat escorted us with our luggage all the way from the hotel to the Narita express. He Was so polite and friendly. Thank you
