Imperial Hotel Tokyo Sep 02, 2013
First impression of the hotel is that it's very 'old fashioned', but huge like a palace. As we arrived almost midnight, the lobby was quite dark and we were the only guests among a few staffs. It was quite a long walk to the old tower to get to our rooms, cos our rooms were at a different tower.
Perception changed the moment I get into the room.
- The room is spacious with excellent view.
- Internet is EXTREMELY fast and comes for free with the room.
- Bed is very comfortable and made me sleep throughout the night without moving a bit.
- Quite a number of TV stations available.
- Working desk is spacious too
- Toilet is huge.
- They are very generous with their toiletries, and are of good quality too
The next morning, I felt like I was in a totally different place. The lobby was busy and crowded, nothing like the night I arrived. Many senior citizens were seated at the lobby. I'm surprised so many non-guests are allowed to linger around the lobby. Every 10m there will be a staff standing there waiting to be at your service. Bowing is their culture, so sometimes I felt bad that an old man bowed to me. Overall service is also excellent!
This hotel is very generous in terms of meal vouchers. Our rooms came with complimentary breakfast, and you're given a choice of 4-5 different restaurants! You can also exchange the voucher for room service without additional charges. If you're not an early person to get up for breakfast, no worries, you're also allowed to use the voucher for lunch up to tea-time!
- Although I was staying on the 26th floor, I could hear the train passing every 30 seconds. Mind you, the hotel is near 3 normal train tracks and 2 tracks for Shinkansen. Anyhow, I didn't mind the noise cos the bed was so comfortable that I didn't have any problem sleeping.
- Apparently they charge USD 10 to use the gym??
While the facade of the hotel looks old fashioned, it was a very good stay. I fully recommend this hotel.

Decent "local" hotel in Tokyo - largely resting on its laurels Feb 01, 2009
The rooms at this hotel are small and dark and the lobby is a popular meeting place for coffee which means smoke smoke smoke.
The hotel is priced at about half one would pay at the Ritz and the service may actually be a bit better. It has a warmer feeling than the Ritz but make no mistake - this is a local hotel and not an international one. Westerners may not feel entirely comfortable although every effort is made by the staff to be hospitable and accommodating. The hotel - rebuilt and rebuilt - has a certain history in Tokyo and this newest structure is hardly inspiring. That said, it seems to attract a degree of local older-money and is viewed as classy and reserved whilst in reality it is largely resting on its laurels.
The hotel also regards things as "close" which are actually several kilometres away! Overall a nie downtown location, though.
