                  We had a very relaxing stay at this hotel. We found it very convenient and staff were most helpful.

                • Family with children

                  Service from the hotel staff was excellent!! Everyone was curteous and helpful. The hotel is close to the train station which made it a convenient location.

                  The only downside to the hotel is that if you don't upgrade your room to superior, the beds are hard and uncomfortable, also the pillows in both the superior and standard rooms are hard and unyielding. Disappointingly, the teppanyaki restuarant in the basement did not have staff that spoke english, a customer had to interpret for us.

                • Family with children

                  We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The room is very clean, daily room svc, Internet access via cable, daily newspaper, request for transformer for h/p or camera charger. Just walk 2 Mins to Ikebukuro train station and the station is really big. Pls ask the hotel staffs at Concierge for more directions if you are not sure. Don't forget to buy Airport Limousine bus + One day pass Metro tickets with Yen 1600 per adult at Haneda airport next to Information counter. Pls use airport Limousine bus to & from Airport/hotel. Value for money, convenient & save time. You also can buy Suica card to use for daily transportation and costs you at Yen 2000 (500 deposit(refundable)+1500 usage). You can topup the value later at any stations. Pls ask JR/Metro office staffs or station staffs if you are not sure. Otherwise you will end up paying more fares and waste time. Pls utilize Metrol ticket to visit Tokyo Tower, Asakusa temple, Aqua city, Yokohama area, Taking picture with Shinkasen & some more. You also can visit Kamakura from Ikebukuro station and costs Yen 890 for one way. Pls ask jr office staff for platform number to Kamakura or anywhere in the city. Tokyo Disnyeland needs to spend almost one day until 10pm. Travelling with Young children, pls advise to use stroller and the transport is free of charge below 6 years old in Japan. You can browse Electronic products at Bic Mac and shoppings at Sunshine city around Ikebukuro area. You will love it, save money, time and trust me. You can go to 7th or 8th Floor at Lumine store for Lunch or Dinner. Prices are ok. Pls try Mos Burger near the hotel. Very nice. We really enjoy the trip to Tokyo and hope you can enjoy too as per information provided above.

                  We reached to the hotel around 9am and this hotel did not accept early check-in and end up we have to pay for early check-in charges. Kindly send the feedback to this hotel to be more flexible like in Singapore.

                  Proximity to public transport and restaurants. The hotel buffet breakfast.

                  The condition of the hotel room was very poor and sub-standard for a four star hotel. This was the third and the last hotel we stayed in before departing from Japan. Compared to our previous two hotels , this hotel room was a big disappointment. If not for the payment penalty, we would have moved to another hotel after the first night. We are frequent travelers and have never seen such a shabby and dated room in a four star hotel. We were told that we had been upgraded to a bigger room, but we would have preferred a smaller more inviting and clean-looking room. However, the hotel exterior, lobby, restaurants and shops are maintained to a high standard and deserve the stars.

                  Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. It is very close to the train station which gets you to alot of places.

                  I liked the delightful and helpful attitude of the staff. I liked its very convenient location. I liked its proximity as a departure point for the airport bus. The ability of the staff to speak English was a definite bonus for an English traveller.

                  Location excellent. Just a stones throw away from Ikebukoro Station and dining and shopping areas. Airport Limousine stops at hotel for transfer to and from Narita/Haneda. Car rental agencies are nearby for those who drive.

                  For the money, this is one of the best deals you will find in Tokyo. The Airport bus from Narita stops right at the hotel, and it is within two minutes from all the rail links you will ever need. I have been to Tokyo many times and I give this hotel super high marks in every category.

                  It is located near the Ikeburuko station with many small/convenient eateries around. However, there are not many shopping joints around, would need to travel to the other stations. The Ikeburuko station is very well linked by many subway lines, and getting around Tokyo is made easier via the jr line (Yamanote line). Hotel staff are very warm and helpful which made the stay even more enjoyable.

                  Convenient location; next to Ikebukuro station. The Metropolitan delivers well on a city centre hotel in its class. Services provided were efficient and friendly. The views out of the higher floor rooms were really spectacular.

                  For people with children it would have been nice for the Fitness Centre swimming pool to be available for family use (franchised concern and therefore separate from the Metropolitan) and to have had an hour or two each day for them alone maybe?
