Grand old hotel with spacious rooms in the heart of Tokyo. Right next to the Marunouchi (red) line, short walk to the famous Ninja Akasaka theme restaurant and with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, this hotel is a winner. Bathroom and amenities are pretty basic, there's no body lotion and pretty cheap little shampoo and conditioner. The rooms in... More

Complete with a pond and waterfall the gardens make for a pleasant walk in the grounds and a focal point for the 1st floor restaurant overlooking... More

If you're in the vicinity, visit this nice garden for free. Otherwise, just skip it. The hotel itself is getting tired and old. Nearby Prince Gallery is so much better (if you have the budget.)

This is an amazing garden with a waterfall and massive koi and carp fishes. It is the highlight of the hotel. Amazingly tranquil spot in the middle of Tokyo. If you are in the area, please visit.

This gorgeous Japanese Garden brings with it 400 years of history. It is a must-see on a visit to Tokyo even if you are not a hotel guest. The night-lightening is fantastic especially around the pond and Taikobashi Bridge. Check out the stone garden. An urban delight to refresh and marvel at the art of Japanese landscaping
