A delightful stay!

Mar 27th, 2020

Wonderful hotel in a delightful setting. Surrounded by a lovely garden with a stunning old three-tier pagoda, this hotel is a dream: great service, comfortable rooms, tasteful furnishings and, probably, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Has a spa, and a pool, a few restaurants and could be a destination in itself. Much recommended. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great Japanese garden with lots of historic and cultural elements...

Feb 12th, 2020

Driving from Narita Airport, it took about one hour to arrive at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo. There are ample parking spaces (up to 400) available and for guests staying a daily parking fee of 1,000 yen is charged. After a simple registration we were shown to Room 929, a Prime Deluxe King with Garden View. The room is very spacious, about 60 sq.m, with a sitting room having a large writing desk, a sofa and marble side table, along with a comfortable king-sized bed. There is a separate powder space with vanity, before entering into the bathroom with bathtub and a shower stall. The toileteries are also premium, from L'Occitane. As the hotel is famous for its garden, before getting too dark we went for a walk. The garden entrance is located on 1/F, and after coming out from the hotel, we walked down a U-shaped slope through the woods, and soon saw the Monument of Chinzanso, with the engraved words of Duke Yamagata Aritomo when he named Chinzanso in 1878. Crossing the beautiful red Benkei Bridge, there are 20 or so Rakan stone statues, representing some of the 500 rakan drawings by Ito Jakuchu, a famous painter in the middle of the Edo Period. Each of the statue is about 50 cm tall. Continuing there is the Koshin Stone Monument. Carved in 1669, it depicts the beliefs of the Koshin school of Taoism. In front there is the Yusuichi Pond. It was created when the garden was first constructed, with a gourd-shaped having a lot of big and beautiful Koi swimming inside. Further along there is a famous well called Kokosei, with the quality of the spring water being recognized as the best in Tokyo. Beside the well there is the 13-tier granite monument honoring warrior tea master Oda Yuraku, the younger brother of Oda Nobunaga, the famous military commander. Along the path we saw the statues of the seven gods of fortune. Ebisu is the god bringing business prosperity and fishing success, also serving as the protector of those who loves the sea, fishing and sailing, as evidenced by the fishing rod and sea bream he is holding. It is also interesting to see the staff preparing the raincoat for the gods on the day. Soon we reached the two buildings in the garden, one being the restaurant we were going for dinner on the night, Mokushundo. The restaurant offers unique iron-kettle and stone-grilled kaiseki cuisine, while the other is the historic Zangetsu Teahouse. Baron Fujita relocated the teahouse from a villa in Hakone and now is recognized as a Tangible Cultural Property. Continuing we passed the sacred tree, the oldest tree in the garden at about 500 years old with a trunk of 4.5 metres in circumference and 20 metres high, before seeing two more of the seven gods of fortune: Jurojin, the god of longevity, and Hotei, the god of luck. Then we came to probably the most famous monument in the garden, the historic Entsukaku Three-Storey Pagoda. Relocated in 1924 from a temple in Hiroshima Prefecture, this legendary pagoda is said to have existed since around the 12th century. Tests show that many of its materials date from circa 1420. During a major renovation, it was consecrated in honor of Kanzeon Bosatsu, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. Beside the pagoda there is also a stone lantern, dated to the late Kamakura period (14th century), and praised by many experts as a masterpiece of the Hannyaji style. Coming downhill we saw two other seven gods of fortune: Bisyamonten, the god of wisdom and bravery, and Fukurokuju, the god of fortune, wealth and longevity. Then right in front we saw the crystal chapel, in which the hotel is famous for, and no wonder it is a premium and popular place for weddings. The Gojo waterfall beside has a 'hidden passage' where one can see through the waterfall to the garden. Returning to the hotel building, we came across the last two of the seven gods of fortune: Benzaiten, the goddess of music, eloquence and fortune, and Daikokuten, the god of the five cereals. After wiping ourselves dry with the towels provided, we went to the lobby lounge Le Jardin for afternoon tea. Looking at the greenery while comfortably sitting in the elegant sofa and table, I had the Dessert Set (1,900 yen), enjoying a rich and tasty New York Cheesecake with Strawberry Ice-cream, and a cup of coffee. After a good sleep, on the next morning we went to the Japanese restaurant Miyuki for breakfast. With an elegant and traditional atmosphere, the hearty breakfast includes Salmon and Grilled Vegetable in Sweet Vinegar, Pickled Plum, and Small Dishes of the Day; Japanese Grated Yam; Boiled Vegetable Oshitashi; Simmered Eggplant; Grilled Fish of the Day; Rolled Egg Omelet, Grated Daikon Radish, Salted Cod Roe; Steamed Rice, Pickles and Miso Soup; and Fresh Juice. Another compliment I have is that the hotel concierge was very helpful in purchasing tickets for the recently opened Snoopy Museum, saving us the time later to queue up. Overall we were very satisfied of our stay in Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, with spacious and comfortable room, delicious food, impeccable service and the really nice garden. It is worth every penny I pay for. Prime Deluxe Room with Garden View (including breakfast for two) - 68,460 yen TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

This is my second stay, and my first at The Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo...

Jan 13th, 2020

Some years back, I stayed at the Four Seasons Chinzanso, and though is was drenched in signature Four Seasons style and decor, something still felt off... but seconds after my arrival to The Hotel Chinzanso, that feeling of something was off... Vanished, and Hello Gorgeous. I stayed two nites to pick up some Sake, no that's not the reason, did you think I was crazy? After a long 18Hr flight from Australia [4 hour connection in Singapore] I decided to break up my air travel with two nites in Fabulous Tokyo. I began reading reviews right here on Trip Adviser and Thank You [Yorkieboy61] and his review along others, I decided to check it out, I already love the area. I arrived early morning, looking like I flew in Cargo [deep discount economy] all the way, and yet I was greeted warmly with big smiles... and it continued this way for 29Hrs. They must have taken pity on my because I was checked in, upgraded to a suite and shown to my room within minutes. My room was located on a high floor, and a great view of the city. The suite was large, and the bathroom even larger... well it seemed that way to my jet-lagged eye's. Plush towels, L'Occitane amenities and a great big ole king size bed, allowing me two perfect nites slumber... Zzzzzz I was in Tokyo this past November and holiday spirt was in the air, and my Centurion needed some action, so after a long hot shower and room service, I ventured out sightseeing and shopping, after all I needed Sake... The Hotel Chinzanso, [like the former FS] is an enormous hotel and I swear there were 1,000 weddings taking place or maybe a couple, so I stayed away from that part of the hotel, and though I heard the hotel had a wonderful Gym, [so so so sad I had no gym clothes packed ;-p] also an amazing Spa [I did my spa-ing in Australia] I can't wright anything about them or where they are in the hotel. I had four meals within the hotel, once at ll Teatro, once at Miyuki Shut-The-Front-Door amazing yum yum yummy... too bad it was on my last nite... and twice room service. I have not an ill word to write about this Five Star property, but should you stay elsewhere [shame on you] you have to dine here! Travel can be harsh, be kind to your fellow traveler and enjoy the world and its diversity. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great staff, but location a struggle for tourists

Jan 13th, 2020

So I was here on a short business trip . Hotel was nice , rooms reasonable size and well appointed in slightly old fashioned style. Staff is amazing and only too happy to help with anything you need in all areas of the hotel. Main downside for a tourist is this hotels location which is not close to any major centre. It’s a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest subway station that is not on a convenient line so going to any major location requires transfer(s). As such you might find taxis as easier but more expensive transport alternative. Otherwise a very pleasant stay !! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

great hotel with beautiful Japanese garden

Dec 22nd, 2019

I stayed Chizabso 12/8/19 for one night with friends. The rooms are good size with nice view. Have very comfortable beds and good amenities. We had a dispute regarding restaurant's bill but the manager of restaurants was very corteous and solved problem quickly. I strongly recommend Chizanso. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
