Tokyo Hotels

As you might expect from a city this size, Tokyo offers an enormous array of places to lay your head. From traditional Japanese futons and western king-size luxury, to wacky pay-by-the-hour ‘love hotels' and tiny capsule pods, Tokyo has it all. As with everything else in Tokyo, the neighbourhood you choose determines the flair and flavour of your visit. However, one thing does remain a constant - hotel rooms are small, so if space is important to you, prepare to pay for it.

The Tokyo hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over ¥40,000)
Moderate (¥18,000 to ¥40,000)
Cheap (up to ¥18,000)

These prices are for a standard double room and include taxes and breakfast unless otherwise specified.

1-1-1 Uchisaiwai-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan

The Park Hyatt Tokyo's role as muse and backdrop to Coppola's Lost in Translation pushed it onto the world stage in 2003. Towering over fashionable Shinjuku, guests enter on the 41st floor and gaze across the neon-lit Tokyo sky. Art blends with sleek architecture and spacious rooms, and even the spa combines tradition and modernisation with impressive success. Plus, there’s something to be said for working out in the gym that tormented Bill Murray.

Hoshinoya Tokyo

+81 50 3786 1144

Hoshinoya is a unique urban offering for Tokyo, a hotel with a contemporary take on Japan's legendary omotenashi hospitality, set right at the heart of the city's Otemachi district.

The 19-floor hotel with stylish lattice exterior forms a bijou enclave in this bustling business district, just a 10-minute walk from Tokyo Station.

But if you do the rooftop onsen spa is a truly unique Tokyo experience. The hot spring waters are the perfect cure for urban fatigue and will help you revitalise your body and mind, all the while staring up at the open Tokyo skies above.
