Staff and guests
The staff responded very politely. Since it was my friend’s birthday, I asked if there was a special plan. He told me that they can store wine in the fridge downstairs for free, and that they can do something special for room service.
There were not many young people staying in this hotel. I saw both foreigners and Japanese people staying. There seemed to be more people staying for business than for sightseeing. Some people were staying to participate in a wedding.
Takeshiba Station was close with less than a 5 minute walk. However, it was a bit troublesome because I had to change trains to get to the main station. It takes 4 minutes to Shimbashi Station. Changing trains was a little troublesome, but other than that it was a convenient location.

I had a very nice stay at this hotel. I was able to spend as relaxing time with my friend. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although there was no special birthday service, they were able to make my room the corner room and the night view was amazing. I like a hotel with a large and clean bathroom, so I was very satisfied with the room I stayed in. It was nice to have a good coffee machine and to enjoy delicious coffee in the room. There were a lot of choices on the room service menu. This time I did not order room service, but I would like to order something the next time I stay.
