Service is very good! Location is excellent, if you are traveling by JR or taking the Tokai Shinkansen. Rooms are well lit. The East Tower rooms, bathrooms and especially the bathtubs are tiny. Can't leave your suitcase open or there is no place to walk. If you'd like a roomier stay, you might go with the Grand Takanawa Prince, up the hill. Great free Wi-fi. The Greener Clean service is good if you stay more than two nights. You can opt to not have your room cleaned and they give you a ¥500 coupon which can be used at most restaurants, gift shops and the 7-11 in the complex. Did it every other night. Great value for the price.
The hotel staff was very helpful upon check in was given maps of the area and told of very good resturants close to hotel to go to and where the subway stops are. Needed to mail a package to someone and was provided with box and label written in japanese by a very helpful front desk. very nice resturants in hotel also. would recommend this hotel for location and very good staff.
"Smart hotel just 2mins away from a Metro station"
I was initially surprised at just how clean and modern-looking the hotel was at first glance - I was initially expecting to be in some standard fare, but the hotel looked like something out of a James Bond movie, with marble everywhere in the lobby. Everything about it was clean, tidy and modern, and the many restaurants available offered something tasty to eat without having to travel far to get it. It even had its own shopping mall for people to buy things.
The room itself was much bigger than expected too - as I was travelling by myself, I usually expect the room to be pretty small, but this was a double bed room with a sizeable, well-maintained bathroom. Admittedly the view from the fifth floor was obscured by a chapel garden balcony used for special events such as weddings, but that's really the only strike on an otherwise perfect starting location for my adventures.
Around the area is a myriad of restaurants and shops, and more importantly, a couple of 7-Eleven supermarkets open 24hrs a day, which was perfect for the late night snack or super-early breakfast.
everything was excellent except breakfast witch was poor-not for a five star hotel...and no choices for people with some diet-sugar free,gluten free...the management need to pay a little bit more attention and to be more variation of food.

"Very good and quiet hotel between Meguro and Shina"
I had a double room (2 beds) on the 8th floor. Size is sufficient (large by Tokyo standard), modern bathroom with tub and "luxury" toilet, coffee machine, water boiler, good wifi.
Shuttle every 15 minutes to Shinagawa in the AM and Meguro all day (about 1km away) on the Yamanote line. Metro at 200m (Shirokanegai station).
Most restaurants at Meguro, many 7-11s and FamilyMart nearby, if you want to eat in your room.
A couple of excellent bakeries nearby (Boulangerie Kaiser, Atelier de Reve)
