Fantastic new hotel in a great location. Only stayed 1 night, but it was perfect - great check in, kind staff, functional room, good breakfast. Only downside is it's a bit of a walk to the nearest train station, but not bad at all. Would definitely recommend.

So many positives about this hotel, including the beautiful Japanese-style modern decor, good breakfast, thoughtful staff, free tea tasting and a convenient location. Overall the hotel is great value. Unfortunately I have to deduct one star because of the overly hard mattress! I'm really surprised no one else seems to have mentioned this in the previous comments as this was by far the hardest hotel mattress I have ever slept on. I had previously being staying in tradition Japanese inn accomodation with thin futons on the floor for over a week while walking the Nakasendo trail and they were all fine for me. Such a shame as the 1899 hotel is fab but this issue will stop me from returning in the future unfortunately. I was also disappointed by the use of disposable cups and utensils in the restaurant during breakfast. I ended up bringing along my own glass cup from the room to try and minimise the amount of one-use rubbish.

Dear guest, Thank you for staying at HOTEL 1899 TOKYO. We deeply apologize for uncomfortable mattress. Actually, we provide softer pad under the bed sheets to our guests when our mattress doesn't suit them. We regret that we could not suggest and provide it to you during your stay. Also we are really sorry that we made you disappointed due to our plastic cups at the breakfast restaurant. We agree with you and our team are sure that we need to consider about environmental issues. We will continue to make improvements with this problem. Your review is surely valuable and we are extremely grateful to you for pointing out this problem. We are so glad you still liked our decor, staff, tea service and location. Thank you so much. Kind regards, HOTEL 1899 TOKYO

Excellent location within minutes from several Subway stations to get you all over Tokyo and to the airports, also few blocks away from Ginza, Tokyo Tower, famous temple and seafood market. This hotel is well equipped with a bath tub so you can enjoy a hot bath with the Sakura scented powder. Ladies get a pouch of top quality Japanese face care products. A variety of teas and their respective water are for you to enjoy the authentic Japanese Teas. Very confortable bed and pillows.

It was a real pleasure staying at the Hotel 1899. The room was extremely large by Tokyo standards, with a lovely sitting area and very nice quality toiletries. The hotel is themed around tea and the tea set in the room with daily replenishment of black and green tea and matcha waffles was a nice touch. They even provide bottled water especially for the tea in addition to the bottled drinking water! Some might say that the beds were particularly hard but personally I prefer that to soft mattresses which don’t support your back. I slept very well with no disturbances from the street. Very quiet at night. The breakfast is served in the cafe downstairs (open only to hotel guests at that time). There was a great selection of continental items such as cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt and smoked salmon alongside cooked items like rice and minestrone soup which was delicious. As expected, there is a great selection of cold teas to enjoy and even green tea bread! Tea is served in the upstairs reception area for guests from 3pm-10pm every day. We came back one evening and enjoyed a delicious cup of matcha, made properly with attention to detail. The staff are friendly and kind. The first day we couldn’t check in until 3pm so went out for a walk in our jet lagged state. We ended up stood outside the hotel at 2pm trying to find a restaurant which might be open at that time. One of the staff actually spotted us form the floor above outside hanging around and came down to the street to tell us our room was ready early which we really appreciated. The hotel is close to Shimbashi which is very lively at night and packed full of restaurants. Also walkable distance to Ginza for great shopping and restaurants. There are several subway lines reachable with a short walk on foot, as well as the Tokyo Tower. For taking the shinkansen it’s a ten minute taxi ride from Tokyo station which was handy with luggage. I would return here in a heartbeat, it was absolutely faultless and unbelievable value for money.

Went there 2 weeks ago on a business trip, hotel was strategically located in Minato city and price is good. The rooms and bathroom was super clean although a bit small. Amenities was good quality and had enjoyed their tea serving. Reception was very friendly. Will definitely recommend to others.
