We stayed at the Palace Hotel twice (before and after a trip from Tokyo to Kyoto) and were simply amazed at this wonderful hotel. The room and cleanliness were impeccable (even by Japanese standards) and the staff was so accommodating and helpful. It was a bit of a "splurge," but the location and help we got with our trip definitely made this a good investment for our short trip to Tokyo. Would absolutely recommend to friends and family and will return on our next trip to Tokyo.

'Artist' Room needs updates & tweaks. Lighting controls, at the far side of the bed headboard are impractical. Bulbs in bathroom lighting fixtures produced a horrid color and were so dim as to make shaving impossible. There was only a single electrical outlet in the bathroom, and two on one side of the headboard. Carpet in the hallway in the area around my room was very old, stained and worn.
Bed and bedding materials were very comfortable, and different pillow types added to sleeping comfort. Though there was no direct view of Tokyo Tower from this room on the 31st floor; however, the view was still fascinating. At night, one can see the lighted tower as a reflection in the windows of an adjacent high-rise building.
The breakfast menu was varied and the offerings were delicious.

Good location to the airport. Would advise more options for times to the airports. Excellent check in experience and staff. Some English focused literature on immediate airport activities would be great.

Location was very convenient, took about 50 minutes to reach from Narita airport. Staff were very friendly and spoke good english. Easy access to the shrine, and to two different train lines. Area was a bit quiet after 8pm, but would suit as an alternative to Shinjuku or Shibuya for a more relaxed spot.

Reasonably short (~1km) walk from Tokyo station, quite close to Ginza shopping area. Staff very cordial, and excellent English if needed. My only gripe is that there were no non-smoking rooms available this particular night. The smoking room smelled a bit smoky, obviously, but was otherwise fine. Overall, the hotel is starting to show its age, but they do a good job maintaining and cleaning compared to similar hotels I've stayed at in Japan. Beware that there is another APA Hotel a block away (Ginza-Takaracho), so if you are navigating via building signs (or asking directions), there may be some confusion. I did not try the restaurant here, but there are not a lot of dining options in the immediate neighborhood, so it is probably good that they offer it.

This area offers a glimpse of what life was like before the economic boom of the 1970s and 1980s. Neighboring Asakusa, it is best known for the Ameya-yokocho Arcade, a busy market with interesting stalls. Ueno-koen, a sprawling park with monuments, zoo, pagodas, and a pond, is a must-do. Museums and galleries abound in the area.
