Hotel Metropolitan Kawasaki is a hotel located in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture. This hotel is right next to the West Exit of JR Kawasaki Station. Kawasaki Station can reach Shinagawa Station in about 8 minutes and is close to Tokyo.
The reason I wrote about this hotel is that it has excellent cost performance. This hotel is not a luxury hotel, but it is a beautiful hotel near Tokyo. In addition, the room rate is as low as 12,000 yen per night. No other hotel is as cost-effective as this.
Good points and Bad points
・Affordable room rates
・Check out is possible at 12:00
・Separate toilet and bath, with large bathroom
・With 4K TV
・With Simmons bed
・There is no desk and chair for business
・The view from the room is bad
・The position of the door that separates the bath from the living room is incorrect (explained later)
State of the room
The size of the room is about 30㎡. The size of the room is almost the same as the corner room introduced on this site last August. Room with 2 beds and 4K TV. The bed is a Simmons bed. The Simmons Bed is the finest bed used in luxury hotels like Mandarin Oriental Tokyo. Despite being a hotel for 12,000 yen, it’s great to have Simmons!
↓I took a picture of the area around the desk. There are one alarm clock and two nightwear. Charge your smartphone using the USB connector. There is no smartphone charger, so you need to call the front desk to request.
About 4K TV
This hotel is equipped with 4K TV. You can also use on-demand services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. In addition, external connection using HDMI is also possible. With so many functions, there is no dissatisfaction.
↓News of the situation in Ukraine was being broadcast on TV. In Japan, news of the situation in Ukraine has been broadcast every day since the start of the invasion on February 24th.
The view from the room
You can see the city of Kawasaki. On the right is the Kawasaki Nikko Hotel, a hotel run by Japan Airlines.
↓You can see Kawasaki Station below. Because it is close to the station, you can hear the running noise of the train, but it’s not enough to bother.
This hotel has a spacious bathroom. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the real is a large bath, so you need to be careful not to drown if you have children. There is a rain shower. If you like taking a bath, you can enjoy it.
↓Personally, I think it’s good to use black as the base color. Because black is less likely to change over time.
↓It is a beautiful bathroom. I think it’s a satisfying bath.
↓Room have everything you need, such as toothbrushes, combs, and makeup supplies.
I took a picture of the inside of the closet. Since there are few hangers, it may not be enough in the cold season. And there is no umbrella, so you will need to bring one if necessary.
Points of concern
↓The door that separates the bath from the living room is in the wrong position. The door of the bath and the closet are the same, so when you take a bath, the closet will open. There is no problem if you are staying alone, but you need to be careful if you are staying with two people.
Next, I would like to introduce the hotel lounge. The lounge is simple, not luxury as Ritz. However, it have all the necessary equipment.
The lounge is on the 3rd floor. You can use laptops, printers, washing machines and microwaves here. There are no business desks and chairs in the room, so work can be done in this lounge.
↓Board game is also set up. It’s like American bar.
↓The sign of the professional basketball team of Kawasaki City was displayed.
↓In this lounge you can call the reception to order drinks.
↓It is a note of the lounge.
↓The washing machine can be used for 400 yen. You can only use it in cash. If you don’t have any change, you will need to exchange it at the front desk.
The best hotel for sightseeing in Tokyo and Yokohama. Because Kawasaki City is halfway between Tokyo and Yokohama. It is connected to Kawasaki Station by a covered passage, so it is easy to move even in the rain.
Also noteworthy is the room rate. Urban twin (room introduced in this article) costs 12,000 yen per night (depending on the time of year). 4k TV, Simmons bed, large bath, etc. are available at this price. I can’t believe it!
It is not suitable for those who want to receive generous service such as Ritz-Carlton and Park Hyatt, but if you use it for sightseeing purposes, this hotel is recommended. It is also highly functional and is recommended for long-term stays at hotels.
The dissatisfaction is that there is no business desk or chair in the room. This hotel is not recommended for those who want to make video calls in the room.
However, is there any other hotel in Japan that is close to Tokyo, so functional and beautiful? I don’t know. If you regret staying at a luxury hotel that costs more than $ 1000 a night, I think it’s better to stay at this hotel. Please try staying once when you come to Japan.
