Check it Out! “Oakwood Premier Tokyo” Explicit Review

I chose "Oakwood Premier Tokyo" because I was looking for a place with a kitchen in order to cook for my partner because we were not able to spend Valentine's day together yet. All rooms have a kitchen and it is close to Tokyo Station, so it was convenient to buy a large amount of food. The good thing was that the kitchen was large, it was easy to cook, and the cookwares were all prepared. Being able to eat while looking at the view of the city was also one of the reasons why I chose this hotel.

What is the appearance of the hotel? Check the entrance and reception

The hotel is located in a corner of an office building and surrounded by tall buildings, so it is difficult to find it. It was more like an office building than a luxurious hotel.

The entrance.

There is an intercom at the entrance, and it’s more like an apartment with a concierge rather than a hotel, as you enter the name of the reservation here.

The entrance seen from inside the hotel.

The 6th floor is the lobby, which was a compact area. There were sofas and a table in the lobby.

The window at the back of the front desk went up tho the ceiling making the room feel bigger.

There was a dining table.

An air purifier was also prepared in the living room and dining room.

There is a sofa and a table by the window.

A TV was installed opposite the sofa.

The bed was king size, and it was big enough two people to sleep on. The mattress was slightly hard and the pillows were thin and soft, so unfortunately it was not very comfortable.

There was also a TV in the bedroom.

There was a desk and a chair next to the bed.

Because it was a corner room, there were two windows. As soon as you open the curtains, you can see buildings standing nearby. The windows are large, so during the daytime sunlight shines in.

We could see Tokyo Station right in front of us. At night, the lights of the car reflect off the window and you can enjoy the city view. Unfortunately, the because the buildings around the hotel were tall, so we could not see the far away night view.

Bathroom

There is no bathtub in the bathroom, but there is a large shower room. The floor is made of rough tile, so that people will not slip when it’s wet.

There were two types of shower; a rain shower and a height removable hand shower. The water pressure was strong enough.

Shampoo, conditioner and body soap were prepared in the shower room. Shampoos were for unisex.

The toilet had a washlet function.

The wash basin was narrow, but there is a shelf behind the mirror which may be useful for guests staying for a long time.

A magnifying mirror was installed beside the wash basin.

Amenities were also prepared by the sink. This is a toothbrush set and a comb.

Lounge

There was a lounge at the back of the lobby where you can enjoy a breakfast buffet. It is reasonable compared to other hotels and it is only 2,000 yen for adults and 1,000 yen for children.

It is open from 6:30 which is very early. This time I did eat here use it because I cooked my own breakfast. Also, because it is located near Tokyo Station, there are countless restaurants within walking distance, so you will not have any trouble finding a place to eat outside the hotel.

Environment around the hotel

As soon as you leave the hotel, you will see Tokyo Station Ebisu Exit. There are no tourist attractions, so it is more of a business area. There is a bulet train that passes through, so it is convinient to get to both Haneda and Narita airports. Also, there are tourist buses, you can enjoy various tours. You can buy souvenirs at the Ebisu Underground Street in Tokyo Station.

State around the hotel.

Staff and customer base

The staff in the parking lot was courteous and gave me good direction to get to the hotel. Check-in and check-out was done smoothly.

Most of the guests staying were casually dressed and were foreign families. The lobby was never crowded and it was very quiet.

Access

It is about 3 minutes on foot from Tokyo Station, so access is excellent. There is also a coin parking area in the basement. There are many shops in the Tokyo Station building, including Daimaru Department Store nearby, so you will not have trouble finding a place to shop.

Summary

It was nice to be able to cook in a different environment. I had no problems with the cooking utensils and dishes, but there were no consumables such as cloths, wraps, paper towels, and etc, so you need to prepare them along with ingredients. Originally it is hotel for business use for a long-term stay by Tokyo Station, but it is also a nice place to enjoy cooking and having a nice time.
