How to Get There
The stay in the hotel is great, as you would expect. However, when I came back I noticed I was charged the full stay twice: one check-in and on check-out. They take an estimate on check-in and are supposed to adjust it on check-out, but instead, charge the full amount again. Many of my colleagues have had the same problem. I am still trying to solve it
I had an excellent stay at the intercontinental strings. The room was nice, breakfast was great, nice and clean and not dated (which some intercontinentals are). What sets this place apart though is the fantastic hospitality and service - in particular, one person (Mr. Russell) ensured my stay was enjoyable. Thanks again!
The hotel itself is nice, although taking two lifts to the room isn't a pleasant thing to do.
The checking out process is slow because only two or three of the people there could do the checking out while there were actually 5 people behind the desk (maybe because the others could not use the cashiers or sth?) the other staff only stood behind the counter and helped you look at the computer for nothing. When you are in a hurry, the scene could be more than annoying.
Another thing that did not impress me was a used bathroom kit in the bathroom.
There was a big box of stuff, like comb, sewing kit, etc (all in one box). When I opened it, the shower cap bag is already opened, and the hair rubber band was long gone. It didn't feel good to see that, a more careful check would be appreciated.
I can’t quite my finger on why but the IC Strings is my favorite hotel. It is so peaceful despite being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Shinagawa Station. The staf is always friendly, the restaurant is perfect when you don’t want to leave. It’s a formal hotel without being stuffy. Small things I like: the view from rooms and workout area, wireless Bose speaker, excellent linens, the restaurant area is open yet quiet. I could not recommend a hotel more highly and I stay 100-150 nights out per year worldwide in all major brand hotels.
This is an amazing hotel for westerners coming to Tokyo. Top notch hotel and service and the location next to the shinagawa train station is excellent. Easy to get to and from Narita on the Narita Express. The room was very nice and be very comfy. On the TV just remember to hit the blingual button if you want to watch CNN in English.
