"Garden oasis, charming views and heavenly bed!"
Enjoyed my stay at this quaint and charming hotel. The welcome was warm and friendly. Customer service was top-notch. I did not have any issues or concerns as a solo female traveler. I even had mail upon arrival waiting for me which I was quickly made aware of. The room itself is spacious and the bed will make you reconsider getting up. I was so cozy in the room I had to balance spending time inside enjoying the amenities or doing what I traveled all the way from New York to Tokyo to do...cherry blossoms! I wasn't sure how difficult it would be navigating from the hotel but was pleasantly surprised. There's a train station at Edogawabashi that is quick into Tokyo station and all other points. The walk down the hill isn't bad at all but I did struggle a bit walking back up the hill. It's doable. Keep this in mind if you have disabilities or health issues. It's a steep hill. The room service and numerous restaurants were good as well. I enjoyed the hazelnut french toast. The garden, well words just can't describe all the things going on in this garden. Do yourself a favor and stay here. I have no complaints or criticisms. When I visit Tokyo again, I'd stay again.
"It Just Like an Old Time Aristocrat"
Chinzanso once was the resident of Yamagata Aritomo who is a military strongman of Meiji age, If you are interested in the history of Meiji Restoration, you shall not miss the spot. The recent visit to Chinzanso is my second time. The first time was in 2013 when the hotel was just out of Four Seasons System. There was a rumor that the Four Seasons gave up this hotel since the hotel was aged. When I visited Chinzanso at that time, it did seem a little bit old, but it was by no meant decayed. Instead, it was so elegant and majestic and just like an old time aristocrat When I visited Chinzanso this July, I found it was still so classic and charming. The managing staffs took a good care of this old pear, and even punishing it brighter. The spacious room with a view of the garden which was already worth the rent I paid. One could hardly find a prime hotel with such a huge and beautiful garden in any metro cities like Tokyo. My package came with free SPA and free breakfast. I always enjoy their swimming pool and spa. The spa has the real Onsen water from Shizuoka, which is rare in Tokyo. Their breakfast was also enjoyable. One did not need to have a meal in a noisy buffet room but tasted fine Japanese or western style gourmet in a quiet dining room. We had a simple soba lunch at the Mucha-an. The meal is delicious, and the price is fair. Last time we had dinner at the yakiniku restaurant Mokushundo. Since I missed that dinner, this time I reserved a table before departing for Tokyo. Regrettably, I had to cancel the reservation since Japanese friends’ inviting for dinner at another place that evening. If you want to experience authenticly traditional Japanese style of elegy, Chinzanso will be your best and maybe the only choice in Tokyo. Next time I visit Tokyo, I will stay here again definitely. 椿山莊曾經是明治時代軍事強人山県有朋的宅邸。如果你對明治維新史有興趣就不能錯過這個地方。 這是我第二次到椿山莊。第一次是在2013年這家飯店剛退出了四季酒店集團。當時傳聞是因為飯店太老舊了而被四季放棄。不過當時我親身感覺是飯店有點老但絕非是在頹壞中。相反的，它是優雅而堂皇，就像個老貴族。 今年七月我再度造訪時，我發現它依然是經典且迷人。管理人員悉心維護它，甚至讓這顆明珠更閃亮。 寬敞的房間窗景是庭園景色，這個庭園就已值回房費。很難在東京這種大都會中找到一個有如此漂亮廣闊庭園。 我買的組合包括免費的SPA 和早餐。我一直很喜歡他們的游泳池和SPA，後者是用來自靜岡的溫泉，這在東京是少有的。 早餐非常好。你不需要在吵雜的自餐廳用餐，而是在安靜的餐廳裡享用日式或西式美食。 我們在無茶庵吃了簡單的蕎麥麵午餐，味美而價格平實。上次來訪時我們在木春堂吃烤肉，令人懷念，所以這次出發前已訂了位。遺憾的是當天有東京的朋友在別處邀宴，只得取消訂位。 如果你想體真正傳統日式的精緻，椿山莊會是你在東京最佳甚至唯一的選擇。下次再來東京，我一定還住在這裡。
"Big room but Old facilities"
In general, the service provided is ok. The room space is big compare with other hotels in Tokyo. However, the facilities are very old and the maintenance of the room is poor. One of my familiy member had a room with really bad smell though they were moved to another less-smelled room. I thought such rooms shouldn't even been saled to any guest at all. The toilet in my room had problem so I had to call somebody to fix it in the late evening. My parents' room closed to the lift could hear the machine noises when turned off the TV in the late evening. I dont think it should be rated as 5 star hotel according to the rooms provided.
"Never seen service like this any where else in the world"
Great hotel. A fifteen minute trek from Edogobawashi tube station. In the middle of a five hundred year old Japanese garden, with pools full of fish and waterfall. Great swimming pool and jacuzzi. L'occitane Provence toiletries.
The hotel was very calm and comfortable. The garden was great to walk around. They had historical statue of Buddha and sculpture. The restaurants inside hotel were Japanese style and Western style. Japanese food in the restaurant was rather salty. The hotel was located inside the Tokyo, but not in the center of the city. There were two hotels in Tokyo under the same name of Chinzanso. Therefore I have to find out the exact address of the hotel for taxi driver.
