Hoshinoya Tokyo, Tokyo
Our rating: Luxury | Property style: Hotel
Brilliantly located in Otemachi, close to Tokyo Station and the Imperial Palace, Hoshinoya Tokyo is one of Tokyo's most unique hotels. Drawing inspiration from a traditional Japanese ryokan, this 17-storey city hotel offers peaceful respite from the bustling city. The hotel’s nod to authenticity is apparent as soon as you enter with beautiful wooden screens and polite Japanese staff that come to greet you personally. Each floor is covered in authentic tatami mats that lead you to the beautiful rooms. The rooms, much like the rest of the hotel, are very sleek and of high quality with thick comfortable mattresses (the beds are quite low to replicate a futon), contemporary bathrooms with huge bathtubs and the all-important space where breakfast is served. Just like a typical ryokan, traditional but elaborate Japanese food is served in the room and not in a restaurant however, Western options are also available. Hoshinoya Tokyo is perfect for those wanting a luxurious and peaceful retreat in the city.
