Overall Satisfaction Description: Although the hotel is advertised as a 5-minute walk from Minato-Mirai Station on the Mita Line, it actually takes more than 10 minutes to walk. It is also within walking distance from Shimbashi Station. However, I would not recommend walking if the weather conditions are unfavorable, such as during snowy, rainy, or windy days. The hotel is located near Tokyo Tower, art museums, and exhibition halls, which are nice attractions, but it can be inconvenient to walk to these places in bad weather. Apart from that, it is quite nice. Upon arriving at the hotel, Tokyo Tower can be seen from the street while walking from the station. I was assigned to the 7th floor. Since check-in is at 3 pm, I arrived early and paid an additional fee of about 2 hours and 30 minutes for an early check-in.

Breakfast is served buffet-style.

This place is particularly known for its freshly baked pastries. I enjoyed the croissant.

I made an early dinner reservation at 1899 Restaurant Ochanomizu, and the Afternoon Tea set was served.

It takes about 10 minutes on foot from Ochanomizu Station to get there. Although the hotel also operates a tea house on the 1st floor, they do not offer the Afternoon Tea set, so I made a reservation at Ochanomizu. The reservation was made through ‘The Table’.

There are several choices for the welcome tea.

They also served hojicha tea and ice cream, and the portion was generous.

Given its location in Shimbashi, Minatomirai, Hotel 1899 Tokyo offers tourists staying at this accommodation a convenient base to explore the surrounding area. While the hotel may advertise a 5-minute walk from Minato-Mirai Station on the Mita Line, it actually takes more than 10 minutes.
