The main building was originally a girls finishing school but then was taken over by the US occupation forces and later became a hotel. It retains many of the prewar architectural features of the prewar building and is a place with character and charm. There are some trees around and, being set on a hill back from surrounding roads, is...

This hotel is charming, it an old (by Tokyo standards) structure, with "old-fashioned" service and amenities. It is quite different from the mainstream luxury chain hotels, providing a relaxing diversion from the frenetic rhythm of Tokyo life. It is located very conveniently, close to major subway and train stations, and surrounded by shops and restaurants, many of which are conveniently...

It was so nice to find a hotel which has kept its original historical charm and which hadn't been overly modernised.

Located right next to Meiji University, the hotel lies in the heart of Tokyo. Nonetheless, it is very quiet and there is no traffic noise which is of great value in a city as busy as Tokyo.

Our stay at the Hilltop was a lovely experience. The staff was warm and helpful (in spite of the fact that we spoke no Japanese and the staff had only a litte English). Our room was most comfortable. We had a marvelous dinner at one of the hotel's restaurants--great martinis, French wine, delicious steak. We hated to leave.
