Pros: It's old style that works very well
Cons: nothing
Location: close to metro and JR stations. Wasn't bombed in the war so genuinely old buildings and atmosphere. Famous for books, ancient prints, guitars.
I always say there and am always remembered by the staff and looked after

Eccentric and Charming

Posted Nov 19, 2017
Pros: We loved the furnishings and the overall style. Staff is fabulous. Be sure to try the cozy bar - the bartender is a true professional.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Near Meiji University and many, many, many musical instrument stores. Good inexpensive food in the area. Close to Metro.
This hotel is 1950s throw back in style. Rooms are small but comfortable. We loved the eccentricities but it may not be for everyone. If you appreciate mid century furnishings and are not in need of business conveniences, this is a lovely place with fabulous staff. It's a good break from generic corporate style hotels. Location is away from main hotel areas.

A classic

The Hilltop is the antidote to hotel life in the modern metropolis. Set back from the street, it is quiet and charming in the old style. Art deco/art nouveau furnishing touches, gorgeous little restaurants (imagine breakfast surrounded by stained glass and classical music). Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is a gem!

Art Deco Hotel - Great if you want what you get

Posted Jul 28, 2011
I would recommend staying here if you are interested in Art Deco, Tokyo's 20th century past, or just an interesting experience. I stayed here because it has a beautiful Art Deco exterior, and was (is?) a hangout for the literati of Tokyo. The hotel interior gives the impression of being a bit tired. But that is because it is all from the 1950s (?). My room was comfortable; but a bit dowdy. The area around the hotel has many trees. It was a novel experience to wake up in Tokyo to the sound of birdsong! At night I was lulled to sleep by someone playing jazz in the Meiji University dorms adjacent to the hotel. Don't stay in the annex; nothing to recommend it. I'm not sure that I would stay here if you are just coming for tourism and want a modern affordable hotel. If you are coming to Tokyo on the Narita Express, get off at Tokyo station, and change to the Chuo JR line. Go to Ochanomizu (Water for Tea...nice name!). Go out of the station at the Meiji University side. The hotel is 10 minutes walk. It's a hilly area (hence name of hotel). It's an easier walk if you go past the Kandasurugadai post office, and take a left. Have a look at the map inside the station before you exit. This is a great area. There are many used book stores, some of which specialize in European languages. Also many musical instrument stores. Since it is a university area, there are many cheap restaurants; Japanese,Indian, Thai, Chinese, and hamburgers. There are also many bars and coffee houses.

Pros: チェックイン時にトラディショナルな焙じ茶のサービスが嬉しい。 朝食のアメリカンブレックファーストも、パン、ジャム、卵料理、サラダ、 コヒー、全てが高品質で、サービスも心地良い。
Cons: バスタブが滑り易いので、滑り止めマットがあれば安心。
Location: 低層のホテルなので窓からの眺望は望めないが、ロケーションは抜群。
歴史的なホテルが未だ現役で休息の宿を提供してくれている。 現代的な欧米式のホテルが好みならお勧めはしない。 都心でタイムスリップするかのようなとても懐かしい感覚に囚われる。 静けさは何物にも代え難い。建物、ドアー、鍵、調度品、レストラン、主張し過ぎない重厚感が心地良い。「古い」が清潔感に問題は無い。

Pros: 建物の雰囲気と従業員のサービス
御茶ノ水駅から少し歩いた丘の上にあるホテル。 建物の外観、内観ともに小さくてレトロで素敵な空間。ホテルの従業員は丁寧で気持ちいい。 ホテル内にある天ぷら屋、バー、喫茶店もとてもいい雰囲気でホテル内で色々楽しめる。
