Most hotel rooms in Tokyo can be very small. We were pleasantly surprised to walk into the room at Shiba Park Hotel, as it was very spacious.  Our room even had a door to separate the bedroom and the bathroom. We had a nice big, and comfortable, king bed, and a enough room for a little table for the two of us.

There are two buildings at the hotel, with a total of 269 rooms. The 151 buliding opeend in August 2016, with 70 new rooms. The guest rooms in this building are relaxing and add a bit of Japanese culture in the decoration.
