The Shiba Park is something of an institution, welcoming world travellers through its doors for over 70 years. While it won’t win many awards for interior design, the property is surprisingly spacious, well-located for exploring the sights, and has some of the most accommodating staff you are likely to find in any big city.
Close to a number of metro stations, within easy reach of both airports and Tokyo train station, and with a wealth of eating options close by, the Shiba Park is in prime real estate – while still remaining a quiet hotel to spend the night. Breakfast is served in the Old City Grill House – an onsite restaurant that looks like it’s been plucked straight out of 1940’s San Francisco – and it is, in our humble opinion, one of the best morning buffets in Tokyo.
The Shiba Park is one of the better options for families visiting the city – with large quad rooms available, and cots for the very-little ones. The location also makes it easy to get to the Disney resorts or to Akihibara by train, and you are only a short walk from Hamarikyu gardens and the Sumida river cruise to Odaiba.
