Hilton sale for Japan, South Korea, Guam
Usually great rates for the Japan hotels, cheapest at Hilton Narita but also fantastic rates for the Conrad Tokyo for those who want to splurge
God damn.. I love japan!
is it possible to travel there with no basic Japanese language knowledge, or with just the help of Google translator :)
Of course, mate
I'm in Japan right now and it's pretty easy to get around since there English for the main attractions and trains . Tourist hot spots also usually have English menus and signs. For everything else google translate is OK.
You will have no problems
The locals are very keen to try out their English if you are having any issues.
I got lost at a very rural train station late one night and even with practically no one around i was still able to figure out how to get the right train back to where i needed to be.
Thank you all, always wanted to visit Japan and china.
will try booking for next year either japan or china :).
Go to China first - you would be bitterly disappointed when you’re in China after having been in Japan…
@Gleung: Sure!!!!!South eastern airlines..here i come..
a lot of the cities and main tourist locations are displayed in japanese and english.
Me too, unfortunately I don't love Hilton.
thanks Kim for bring down the traveling cost to JP & SK. ;)
Limited availability at the discounted rates. Offer is subject to availability at participating Hilton properties across Japan, South Korea, and Guam, for stays booked between 21 Nov 2017, 2pm JST, and 24 Nov 2017, 2pm JST, and completed between 21 Nov 2017 and 30 June 2018. Offer subject to availability. Blackout dates may apply and vary by property. Rates are valid for single/double occupancy and are exclusive of all taxes, incidental charges, gratuities, and resort fees where applicable. Discount is 40% off Flexible Rate (“BAR”) and Bed and Breakfast Rate (“B&B”) across all participating properties. Hilton Honors members will receive an additional 10% off BAR and B&B. Hilton Honors Membership is required to book the Hilton Honors Members rate.
So I can halve the 'HONORS DISCOUNT ADVANCE PURCHASE' price and expect to pay that?
It says you have to be a hilton honors member. Clicking the sign up to honors button on the same page takes you to a sign up page in Japanese writing, translating shows japanese address options… Anyone know what to do?
just sign up hilton honors via english site or somewhere. Its one account that works for all
Thanks very much! :)
I have booked last week directly with the hotel, does that mean I'm getting the difference back plus 25% off?
Any deals for North Korea?
Try sneak across and you might just get yourself free accommodation in a small 1 bedroom cell =).
i think it will be much smaller than that, more like a capsule hotel for 1 but buried underground…
plus you get free massage day and night by soldiers with baseball bats :)
Try harder next time mate~ Ozbargainers are not that easy to be amused by the story :)
@denlife: This is what I am talking about!! Well done mate~ :) you made my day happy :)
If you are planning to travel around in tokyo, I wouldnt recommend living at narita. It is REALLY REALLY far. Hilton tokyo is great as its right in shinjuku which is centre and you can get to everywhere quite fast. Otherwise, Odaiba Hilton is also quite nice as it isnt too far off either.
the time/cost of getting back to the eastern side of rainbow bridge (from odaiba) is annoying isn't it?
mmm its not that bad. The yurikamome line that takes u from shimbashi to hilton odaiba isnt bad, its like a 12min ride i think. The odaiba hilton per night cost is also much cheaper than tokyo hilton in shinjuku. If you are willing to dish out more for hotel, less time travel, cheaper train rides then your better off at tokyo hilton if its worth it for you. Otherwise, if you want to save some more money at the hotel, pay a bit more for the yurikamome line and a bit more time on travel then go for odaiba.
Overall Odaiba should be the much cheaper choice. The main reason why I wouldnt recommend Narita is the TRAIN ticket would cost you HEAPS and its like 1 hour travel to get to city centre.
It costs around $3.80AUD to cross that bridge once, so around 7.60 for a round trip. There is an unlimited day ticket for that line which is slightly cheaper but I can't remember how much it was.
haven't tried the unlimited day ticket, will look into that thanks!
Osaka/kyoto? What is avg cost per night?
I just looked up the dates I’m going for 4 nights at the Conrad , it’s about 730 AUD altogether using the member discount m
Edit: my mistake..it's like 760 AUD PER NIGHT lol….
wow 700+ a night….
Dayum just booked Tokyo hotel…still got Kyoto and Osaka to book..
Anyone know if the sale is also for peak season ? Gonna in Kyoto and Osaka from 1/04-09/04.
The Conrad one in Osaka, is it a good location?
Yep, good location. Next to train station and pretty much right in the middle of the city. The Conrad in Osaka i mean.
Only downside is there is no airport limousine bus yet. Have to train then 1 or 2 subways, or train then taxi.
This is perfect as I wanted to stay nearby the airport one night for a super early flight. Thanks OP
Hilton Shinjuku is good, staff are awesome, rooms are recent enough not to have shower curtains. Only downside (for some) is a 10min walk to where all the action is.
The hotel has a shuttle bus to Shinjuku station.
'Book Now' button doesn't work. Has anyone booked with 50% off?
Apologies, will start on 21st of April. My bad. I will wait then.
Oh, I'll arrive in Tokyo on the 21st. Maybe I'll book ounce on the ground there for the night.
Hmm doing at trial booking for Hilton Tokyo has the price at $914-$1400 per night.
So 50% off would still make it $450 a night… is it really worth it?
I am in Japan for 3 weeks - not sure if this is a wise move!
I couldnt justify it for anything other than a special occasion. Last deal i got tokyo bay for 2 nights for around 400ish, and i used that as a birthday present for my partner on top of disneyland/sea.
Every other day we booked some shady ass place on the cheap. Was pretty great. Keep in mind that the hotels are for sleeping. What you want from a hotel is location, and for that you can go cheap.
Edit: if you are a poor bastard and want to do the disneyland resort, leave it for the last few days of your trip so you end everything on a high note.
Highly recommend Hilton tokyo bay for a couple nights if you plan to spend a day each at Disneyland and disneysea.
I plan to buy 2 day pass for Disneyland. Do you buy the pass online in advance or is it also available at hilton tokyo bay?
Theyre avaliable at the hotel, bonus is that you can buy them even if theyve stopped selling tickets for the day (over capacity). Same price as buying from the place. You will need to buy the disney rail pass for 3 days, seeing as the hotel has a stop on it, but its about 400¥ or something each, and you would have had to buy it anyway lol.
Isn't there a shuttle bus, with Mickey mouse windows :) from hilton tokyo bay?
@ausvicee: I believe so, but the train was cheap and within walking distance. The first night we got there we sat on the train for a few rounds kinda sightseeing.
Theres a shuttlebus from the disney train to the hotel if you dont fell like pushing your bag a couple hundred metres as well.
Edit: the tickets are still in my wallet. 1100¥ for an adult 3 day pass for the disney train. If you dont want to do that, then yeah, free shuttlebus. Cant speak for thise though.
[@fratzhaus](/comment/more 5305294/redir): thanks! It says on hilton tokyo bay website the shuttle bus takes you to/from bay city station. Will buy the disney rail pass anyway…great for sightseeing like you said
Also, the hotel has a (24hr?) convenience store in it with an atm. Just an fyi.
Book now not working?
Is anyone trying to book this right now? The book now button doesn't seem to be working? I've tried Safari and Firefox.
Anyone knows how to login? The book button doesn't seems to work without login?
Okay it says that the sale starts at 2pm Japan Standard Time. It's currently 12:20pm in Japan so maybe the sale hasn't started yet, even though the countdown clock says that it has.
I was able to see the 50% off prices for Tokyo, but not for Osaka, anyone else have this problem?
The book down button doesn't work but clicking on 'learn more' brings you to the individual site and from there can book as normal.
Yep, same thing for me, but now that I'm trying to get in after 2pm Japan Standard Time, whole site is crashing.
Yeah I'm getting the same thing now. Should've booked the Tokyo leg when I had the chance!
All the 'book now' buttons now work, but the site doesn't =/
Edit - if you untick the 'time sale' option on the book now page, it brings you to the next page like normal, including sale price. That option ticked seems to take you to an error page.
Well hopefully it's the same issue for everyone, so you can sneak in on those Tokyo rooms when the site gets back up!
Use the normal website for example - http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/japan/hilton-tokyo-TYOHITW/...
The deals still show up there as well. I've had no issue using this link today…. until now.
I checked right at the time the counter finished and the sales were active for Tokyo. Keep in mind it's not all rooms, so if you were hoping to get one of the cheaper rooms at half price you're out of luck. The 50% is also off the full price, not the honors discount price.
This is so annoying - was looking forward to booking a week at Osaka Hilton in July 2018. I've sent a message on Facebook to see if I can access the sale :(
If I'm not mistaken the sale is for stay up to June 2018
Correct, Hilton FB confirmed this.
I just tried to book my Tokyo stay from 2 - 8 Jan and it says all sold out where clearly if you booked through hotels.com or similar sites, it is still available.
I actually quizzed another booking website about this because it happened to me recently. They explained that they pre-book rooms for certain periods, which is why some websites show a hotel as available where as other websites show as fully booked. No idea if it's the truth but it seems to make sense.
I wonder how that works.
I managed to find some availability through the Apps, but it wasnt discounted at all. I guess 2 Jan - 8 Jan must have been a high season.
For those still looking - I'm having much better success through the Hilton Honors app!
Yes. Use the app, get 500 bonus points too. Conrad Tokyo coming down to 20000jpy per night on some dates!
