"hotel in wonderful position"
The hotel is a bit old and has been partially refurnished without great taste. Rooms are simple, a bit small but this is common in Japan specially in the heart of a big city like Tokyo. The position is fantastic, walking distance from major train station of Shinjuku, cant ask for anything better. Like everywhere is Japan all is working well, staff were very polite but nobody smiled. Unusual.
"Cheapest Hyatt in Tokyo"
I have stayed at many Hyatt's around the world and I have to say this is my least favourite just because it doesn't stand out as a Hyatt. The rooms are very dark and depressing and this will led you to explore the hotel which is nicer than the rooms. The location of this hotel is great and much cheaper than the Park Hyatt across the way (which if you have the chance the suites are breath taking there, I was there in 2009).
"Excellent stay at Shinjuku"
It is always a pleasure to stay st Hyatt. The staff is welcoming and take extremely good care of their guests. The amenities and restaurants are second to none. I always enjoy my stay at the Hyatt. Thanks for the experience.
As a loyal Marriott/SPG platinum member, I was very pleased with the service provided by everyone at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo. The hotel is conveniently located right next to the subway and a short distance away from a JR line.
"Expensive but worth it"
At just under $550 AUD per night including breakfast for the king room with view, we were expecting quite a bit from the Hyatt Regency, and it has well and truly delivered. The lobby itself has massively high ceilings and the centrepiece is 3 beautiful chandeliers that are simply breathtaking. The staff were lovely and very helpful, arranging the airport limousine for us at check in. They also do not take tips like most places in Japan. Our room comes in at 33m squared (according to booking.com) and is lovely and spacious with a fantastic view over Shinjuku Chuo Park and that stretches into the distance. Although the bathroom is small it has everything needed, with a fantastic shower (excellent spray and water pressure) and a heated mirror that leaves a square in the centre unfogged (ingenious!!). Huge widescreen tv with maybe 4-6 English channels, (some have both english and Japanese at different times) and a great movie channel. Breakfast is either a western style buffet served on the lobby level or a Japanese set breakfast on the 3rd floor (we skipped this). The buffet had a good range, egg station with fantastic omelettes, usual bacon/sausages/hash/tomatoes etc, a Japanese section (no sushi), croissants, Danish and a range of breads. Fruit, yoghurt, cold cuts, cereals & 5 different juices. The only thing I thought was lacking was in the salad and fruit section being very small (compared to other hotels I've been to). I also chose not to order espresso coffee and just had the filtered (I think) which unfortunately was quite bitter and served with cream rather than milk. All in all a good breakfast buffet but not quite the standard we've experienced in places like the Continental in Ho Chi Minh or the Centara in Phuket. Although we didn't swim we did go up to look at the pool facilities. From the outside it didn't look very big, but we decided not to go in as you had to wade through a pool containing antibacterial chemicals before entering the pool room (another ingenious idea). Unfortunately after looking at length through trip advisor, most of the restaurants nearby are fine dining or highly priced, and walking around there are no authentic 'mom and pop' restaurants close by. We did however find some great places inside or attached to office buildings nearby. All in all a great stay and a treat after staying in Airbnb's the rest of our trip :)
