This is my first time checking into Toyoko Hotel. I love the hotel itself, clean and spacious. However, what bothers me is their policy, only members can check-in earlier at 3:00 pm ( which is standard to most hotels throughout the world ). In order for me to check-in earlier I would have to pay extra 1500 yen to become a member. Furthermore, the staff asked me 3 times “are you sure you don’t want to take the benefit and join the membership?” I understand each hotel has their own policy, but this felt more like forced sale to what should be the standard checkin time throughout the world. Other than this, it was a pleasant stay.
