Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel Gajoen is not only a great place to stay but also offers areas to relax and dine or to have afternoon tea.

Also make sure to pay the historical part of the hotel a visit. Paying the small entrance fee of the Hyakudan Kaidan will open the doors to what is also known as the Palace of the Dragon King of Showa Era, a 99-step staircase that is home to Japanese-styled rooms and wall-decorations.

We visited Hotel Gajoen to explore their Hinamatsuri exhibit and it did not disappoint. It is a great time to learn about the Girls' Day festival in Japan and see displays of years' worth of Hinamatsuri dolls from all over the country. The exhibit is set up in rooms that jut off from the historic 100-step staircase in the hotel. Definitely a must see if you are visiting Japan in March. Plus you can try on kimono at the last stop and they will very gladly take pictures for you.

Great hotel. Our suite was huge! We had use of the executive lounge and it was such a great place to unwind and relax after sightseeing. There are a number of great restaurants on site but you do need reservations. The art tour was also worth it - the tour is in Japanese but they give you an English written guide and it was fascinating!

We had high expectations for this property which were far exceeded. From the moment we arrived we were so warmly welcomed and settled in by Wataru, who also kindly assisted us throughout our stay. The check-in process was calm, attentive & caring. Our room was stunning with Meguro River & Mt Fuji view. Well appointed, immaculately clean, carefully planned with every amenity we could have wished for. Ample space for our family of three. The hotel is breathtaking. A true destination in its own right. The Kanade American Grill produces wonderful food, both for extensive breakfast & also in room dining which we had fully set up in our room, it was a fine dining experience in the privacy of our own space. Having said how gorgeous the property is, the staff here really elevate it to the next level. They are all incredible, this level of genuine service, care & attention is very hard to find. We simply cannot fault a thing & eagerly await our return. With heartfelt thanks to all.

I had high expectation when I booked the hotel, but the experience here was even better than I expected. The room, restaurants, breakfast, everything is great. There is a supermarket nearby. Guests can take free shuttle bus to Meguro station every 20 mins. The hotel is now my first choice when I visit Tokyo.

This is the most luxurious hotel I’ve ever stayed!

Big room!
Clean!
With all the details you want. All the shower stuff; skin care, they even offer you steam eye mask at night.

Service is 120% wonderful. Traditional Japanese high level stander service! Nothing I can complain about.

Food is woowww~~~
We only tried the buffet restaurant and 8th floor exclusive lounge.
Buffet restaurant serve buffet food for breakfast and lunch. Both meals are very delicate and delicious.
8th floor guests only lounge offer almost whole afternoon and evening drinks and snacks. Also…with an unbeatable view.

Anyway, as a category 8 Hyatt, this one is the best for me!

We were in Tokyo for 5 nights with another couple and booked The Hotel Gajoen several months in advance. While the hotel isn't centrally located, it was beautiful and well appointed. There is a subway station close by, but it requires a walk up a steep hill, but that really wasn't a big deal. Our room was large (about 800 sq ft) with 1.5 bathrooms, which is really nice for a couple. The bed was also a bit bigger than a king size bed. Perhaps it was also the level of room that we had, but there was a daily happy hour with tons of food and drink. I suppose it was all of the food that we ate all day, but we really didn't take advantage of the happy hour food as much as we could have. The breakfast that was included was amazing with a large selection of both Japanese and Western items. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend to others.

Staying at this hotel was such a treat! Very well appointed. Excellent service. There’s a museum, a garden and it’s also in a very central location for just strolling, shopping or dining in restaurants. Food was great too. Would highly recommend!

Superb room, spacious, very well equipped (ultra comfortable bedding) and enjoying a very pleasant view. Very caring staff. Convenient location, 5/10 minutes walk from Meguro metro station (caveat: road a bit steep). The hotel provides a free shuttle/bus service (which we did not try).
The ground floor is spectacular.
Very good breakfast mixing continental and Japanese flavors.
Very good value for money, notably considering the size of the rooms. Highly recommended.

This hotel is beautiful (more like a museum) but VERY LARGE. It is not a boutique hotel and I’m not sure why it’s listed as such in many publications. Room and bathroom are large and well appointed in traditional Japanese decor. The bed was extremely comfy. The service is good but again, it’s a massive hotel so trying to track someone down is sometimes difficult. There are many wedding and lots of people there just to take photos. Feels very impersonal. Overall the experience was fine but I would not return.

We took the monorail to Hamamatsucho and then the JR Yamonote Circle Line to Meguro. Take the West Exit. You can get to the hotel by heading to the Amazon Japan building which is connected to the hotel via an escalator. The cost was 500 yen but it was a weekend special. it is all on public transport so it is cheap even without the weekend special. A taxi is easier but catching the monorail and train is also easy. You will love the hotel.

It depend on the time of the day and date of the week. The rush hour traffic is very heavy in Tokyo, so the safest way is taking van/taxi to Shinagawa Sta. and take reserved seat on JRLine to Narita. Or you can ride a cab to Westin Tokyo (near Ebisu sta., next to Meguro) and catch the bus to NRT. It's easiest way. I prefer the bus over the train because of luggage, but again, depends on time. Ask the hotel staff. They may have better idea about the traffic situation. Also they may arrange the tickets/reservation for you. Good luck.
