As one of the world’s design capitals, Tokyo is a wonderland for aesthetes. Here, a millennia-long history in arts and architecture combines with a contemporary global sensibility to create one of the most vibrant metropolises in the world. Today we present you the most beautiful and luxury hotels to visit in Tokyo!
This 21-room boutique hotel in the residential Meguro neighborhood represents Tokyo’s harmonious combination of high design and traditional aesthetics. Ask for Room 607, which was refreshed in last March with brown teak floors. Its ambience changes throughout the day as sunlight filters through shoji rice-paper panels.
Four Seasons Marunouchi
At 57 rooms, this sanctuary next to the bustling Tokyo Station is the most intimate of the luxury chain’s properties. The hotel’s uncluttered contemporary interior designed by Yabu Pushelberg complements the urban vistas afforded by the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Occupying the top six floors of the 38-story Otemachi Tower in the financial district near the Imperial Palace, Aman’s first urban outpost is also its largest so far, with 84 guest rooms that put a 21st-century spin on traditional Japanese ryokan decor.
Bringing together New York’s Tony Chi and homegrown talent Shinichiro Ogata of Simplicity, Tokyo’s latest design-centric property takes up the 47th through 50th floors of a skyscraper near Ginza. Its design is beautiful and leaves no one indifferent.
Mandarin Oriental Tokyo
Inspired by Japan’s rich forestry, the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo interprets its wood-and-water theme both literally and metaphorically. The soaring public spaces replicate the experience of walking among tall trees and waterfalls, while graphic fabrics reference foliage.
Tokyo Station Hotel
This 150-room lodging is located inside the historic monument of Tokyo Station Marunouchi, designed by Tatsuno Kingo and built in 1915. Its head-to-toe renovation in 2012 brought in classic European decor by Fiona Thompson of Richmond International.
Palace Hotel Tokyo
Opened in 1947, this historic 290-room revealed its 21st-century reincarnation in 2012, after three years of renovations. Today, you’ll experience soaring spaces decorated in colors inspired by a spring kimono.
