This hotel is operated under the same chain as Royal Park Hotel The Shiodome. The hotel is conveniently connected to Haneda International Airport (but on the extreme end) hence there is no need to wait for a shuttle bus (unlike that in LAX).
The hotel is situated at the departure level but one must walk about 5 to 10 minutes from the subway station. Given the hotel layout, expect more walking as the hotel has a very long corridor (try getting a room nearer to elevator). The corridor however is wide enough to accommodate the luggage trolley, hence there is no worry about lugging your luggage.
The size of the room will make the room I had in Shiodome looked huge. There is enough space for only a queen sized bed with a small slither of walking space on each side of the bed. Instead of a recess for clothes, all you get is just a metal bar. Opening up one luggage itself will be a challenge in this room! The best feature of this room must be the fridge. I have never seen a fridge so small until today.
Not surprisingly, the toilet is small. You have a small tub for shower, and space big enough for one toilet bowl and one sink. The amenity kit is not as well stocked as that in Shiodome. Thankfully, the curtain in this room was able to shield out the sunlight and there was no sound of planes taking off and landing!
The hotel has a restaurant (which we did not try as our flight was quite early and we had access to ANA Business Lounge) which serves dinner and breakfast. A better option is to explore Haneda Airport’s Edo Food Street! For those who feels hungry during midnight, a snack vending machine is available in the hotel. Takafuku serves pretty good Kobe Sukiyaki (for those who didn’t get to try it in Tokyo). Kobe beef is a must try for those visiting Japan.
The hotel is definitely convenient for those arriving late into Haneda or those catching an early flight the following day. Given the size of the room, I don’t think I would want to stay there any longer than 1 day.
This completes TTOTY 2017 Part 1 – I shall try to do a review on Malindo 737-800 Business Class by next month before TTOTY 2017 Part 2 end of this year.
