Sequence Miyashita Park - Queen (Park view)
Nice view of the park, clean and modern but expensive
One day I went to take pictures of Christmas decoration at Miyashita park. At that time I did not realized there is a hotel at the end of the park, overlooking the whole building. I thought to myself that it would be cool to stay there to get the night view. The hotel is clearly target those instra generations, with lots of corner to take selfie at the receptions.
The view from the room is great, especially at night. You can see the whole park lights up. It would have been better during special events where they have more art pieces on display in the park.
The room is smaller than I expected. We got the room with queen bed. The bed itself is placed in the middle of the room with one side of the bed against the wall. That is something I don’t like especially with a larger than a single bed. I prefer to be able to get into the bed from both sides. The bed itself is soft and large enough for two adults. It felt more like a semi queen size.
There are not much space to move around in the room. The cabinet next to the window is nice to sit down and enjoy the view. The problem is there is no place for two people to rest their back. Only one person can sit at the one of the corner. Another corner is occupied by a flat screen TV.
The view from the room is nice, if you can leave the window open. Take note that the people can see you from outside if you stay close to the window.
There is no bathtub in this room, only shower. The sink is in the bedroom behind the head of the bed.
The hotel is close to Shibuya station. Great location if you are planning to spend your time in the area. There are a lot of lively eatery at Miyashita park and also in the mall. The hotel itself is at the end of the park, which is a good 5 - 10 minutes walk from the entrance to the park, depending on how heavy your luggage is. Shibuya station isn’t the easiest to navigate either. I got lost despite the fact this is my third time to go to the park.
The design of the hotel is rather usual. It looks cool and modern with a nice view. This is becoming a standard design for many of the hotel recently, which I find it is nice but a bit too boring. It has got a view so that is the main thing I like about the room.
The park closed at 11 PM, so you can get unique view of the park at night without people. It was also not very crowded in the morning. That gives you opportunities to see Shibuya in a different perspective.
The price is high, because of the location and the view. I understand they can demand for this price since it is close to Shibuya, and the vibe is hip. But that’s all it has to offer. There are suite rooms which suppose to have art piece installed. They are even more expensive than the King terrace in Hilton Odaiba, which I would rather prefer to stay at that price point.
