Hyatt Regency Tokyo
The Hyatt Regency Tokyo is a beautiful hotel about 10 mins walk from the Shinjuku Station. It is located also right next to a nice park, the Shinjuku Chuo Park. And next to it, is the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building which offers a FREE wonderful view of the Tokyo district from the top of the building. Do not miss a visit to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building if you are staying at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo
Location and Transportation
The Hyatt Regency Tokyo is located within reasonable walking distance from the famous Shinjuku Station. What I enjoyed about staying here is the walk from the station actually. You can walk through multiple different routes from Shinjuku Station to the Hyatt Regency Tokyo hotel. Every night as I travel back from my office to the hotel, I walked a different route and experience a little different Tokyo. Along these routes, you can find eating places, drinking places, shopping places (especially the famous Yodobashi Camera Shinjuku West Main Store which I can spend just hours and hours inside). So do not just discount this hotel just because it seemed to be a walking distance from Shinjuku.
To be clear, there is a train station just outside the hotel. That is the “Tocho-Mae” on the Oedo Line. But this is only really relevant if you are already travelling on this line somehow. To me, in Shinjuku Station, for me to get to this line, is pretty tough.
If you find the walking too far, they do operate daily regular buses from the hotel to and from Shinjuku Station. Right outside the hotel, you will see the “bus stop”
And the time table for the bus is clearly shown:
This is also the same place where you can take the Airport Limo Bus from Narita Airport and most importantly TO the Narita Airport. I would recommend doing that as it is easier when you have lots of luggages.
Interestingly enough. This got me more excited. There is a bus from Hyatt Regency to Mitsui Outlet Park at Kisarazu !! I must find time to go the next time !!
The return trip from Shinjuku Station is right outside Odakyu Department Store and very near to Gong Cha (as at 2018) store. So it is pretty easy for you to find your way back to the hotel from Shinjuku Station. Here’s a map of the bus stop at Shinjuku Station.
The Lobby and World of Hyatt Counter
The lobby is pretty elegant and very spacious for a Japanese hotel. There is a “World of Hyatt” counter which I used. The check in was pretty smooth even though I arrived early and they could only give me a room I wanted (facing the park) at 2pm. Never mind, I left my luggage and go for a walk to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building and then to the Shinjuku Chuo Park.
Also I want to mention that at the basement of the hotel, there is a convenience store. Like all Japanese convenience store, you can find everything and anything…… 🙂
The Room at Hyatt Regency Tokyo
I did not stay at the Regency Floor but only a normal room (or they told me an upgraded new room, which I don’t know if that’s the truth). Nevertheless the view is very nice as it faces the park and a view of the Mt Fuji even !
A bath tub….. something hard to find in a Japanese hotel.. but of course, I used it a total of ZERO time 🙂
The toiletries were replaced daily and I always have a fresh supply of water and clean towels….
The WC is in a separate unit and hence very nice…. no smell 🙂
Hyatt Regency Tokyo Beautiful Views from my room
And this is the nice view I wake up to and come back to from office every day
A wonderful stay there and I throughly enjoyed it.
