Mandarin Oriental – Tokyo – 5 stars – What a view…


..from the top of a skyscraper in downtown Nihonbashi Tokyo.

FINAL OCMMENTS

Plus

– Service is at the top here. Nothing out of control.

-Location and views from rooms and common areas and SPA

Minus

– A little more snobby and not the same quality on theΒ guests as their competitor Shangri-La in Tokyo.

-Smoke is everywhere in the lobby bar and check in aerea which is above the bar.
