The Capitol Hotel Tokyu

The Capitol Hotel Tokyu

What kind of hotel is The Capitol Hotel Tokyu?

This is one of the best luxury 5-star hotels in TOKYO.  Once you enter the hotel, you will feel like another world.  The dynamic main lobby created by Mr. Kengo Kuma of a Japanese famous architect is truly amazing.  The Japanese-style flower arrangement in the center of the lobby changes every month, so you can feel the change of the seasons.

This is surrounded by the lush greenery of Hie Shrine, a rare natural environment in the city center, but the hotel offers excellent access and convenience to the government district, Marunouchi, Ginza, and Roppongi.

The area around the hotel has the Imperial Palace, Shinto shrines, National parliament building, the supreme court, etc. making it a great place for a walk or jog.  Don’t forget to take a walk around there.   A map of the jogging course is available at the reception.

Then, all staff is first-class.  They provide sophisticated Japanese hospitality to all guests from all over the world.  You can feel the elegant “Japanese” hospitality.  We were so impressed with their warm hospitality during our stay.

If you are a solo traveler, business person, couple, family, or group, the hotel would be great for you.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, the entrance on B2 of the hotel is directly connected to Exit 6 of Kokkai-gijidōmae Station and Tameike-sannō Station.  Even on a rainy day, you can get from the station to the hotel without getting wet.

For wheelchair users, take Exit 7 at Tameike-sanno Station on Tokyo Metro Nanboku Line and a 3min walk.  The hotel is directly connected to Exit 6 of the station, but since there is no elevator, it is better to use Exit 7.

Then it takes less than 10min by train from Tokyo Station.   Also, it takes 40min by taxi from Haneda Airport and costs around JPY6,000.

*Please note that there is a possibility of traffic jams during rush hours. You should avoid using a car during weekday rush hours in Tokyo.

Then the parking lot is available at JPY4,000 per day.  The valet service costs JPY2,000 between 7:00 and 21:00.

Rooms I would recommend?

The Capitol Hotel Tokyu

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a room with a National parliament building view.  That’s really nice.  You should request it when you book a room.  That can’t be guaranteed due to availability, but if you are lucky, you may be able to get it.

How about the club lounge?

The club lounge called “The Capitol Lounge SaRyoh” on 27F is awesome.  I’ve been to several other 5-star hotel lounges, and this is definitely one of the best in TOKYO.  If you stay on the club floor or in a suite, you can use the club lounge.  On top of that, the parking lot and valet service are available for free.  A meeting room is available for 60min for free.  Also, you can check in and out here.

Then overall, the food presentation and drinks are amazing.  A wide variety of fine whiskeys, champagne, wines, beer, Japanese sake, and fresh juices, etc. are available.  The sweets are all of the highest quality.  Chestnut cake, mango pudding, banana cake, chocolate cake, apricot tart, sandwiches, danishes, and scones, etc. are available during the afternoon tea time.  The Arita-yaki tableware is also nice.

During cocktail time, hors d’oeuvres, salads, soups, slices of french bread, desserts, and main dishes such as steaks are available.  Of course, the food tastes great.  There is a chef dedicated to the club lounge here.  This is where you can enjoy your dinner.  On top of that, the view is fantastic.  In the evening, the Parliament building is lit up, so you can enjoy a different view from the daytime.

The food presentation is held four times a day.

How about meals?

There are wonderful western, Chinese, and Japanese restaurants, a bar, and a lounge.  We tried breakfast at the western restaurant called ORIGAMI on 3F.  The ambiance is excellent.  We enjoyed the food while viewing a traditional beautiful garden.  You can choose from Continental breakfast JPY2,800, American breakfast JPY4,000, Morning Steak Breakfast JPY5,500, Seasonal Breakfast JPY4,000, or Japanese breakfast JPY4,000.  The morning steak would be the best the portion tends to be big.  The breakfast is between 7:00 and 11:00.

Then the afternoon tea at The Capitol Hotel Tokyu is very popular because of the wonderful Japanese-style decorations.  It is very difficult to make a reservation, but if you are staying at the hotel, you should definitely try it.  The afternoon tea here is probably the best in Japan.

Then there are many nice restaurants around the property.  If you are a gourmet, you must be excited.  If this is your first visiting Tokyo, you should ask the staff about recommended restaurants, cafes, shops, etc.

My impressions

Japan is blessed with many fine hotels but this is indisputably one of the best.  You will experience the traditional beauty of Japan and first-class hospitality during your stay.  It will be your best memory.  Have a nice trip.  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
