The 29 Best Tokyo Hotels 

Across all price points and styles. 

When it comes to important travel decisions, deciding where to stay is a close second behind the fundamental question of where to go. When Journy trip designers are providing hotel recommendations for travelers, they think holistically, with considerations for for neighborhood, type of accommodation, budget, services/features, and design/aesthetic.

  • Neighborhood
    Are you okay hopping on the metro to go from one end of the city to the other for sightseeing? Do you want to be within walking distance of restaurants? And what about shopping? If this is just a stopover from one city to the next, do you want to be near a transit hub? Geographical proximity is an important factor to consider when thinking about what neighborhood best aligns with your tastes, preferences, and priorities.
  • Type of accommodation
    Are you traveling with kids and looking for an adjoining room? Do you want two rooms on the same floor? Would you mind dozing off in a Queen bed or are you a stickler about a King? When it comes to hotels in Asia—especially small boutique or historic properties—you can't expect the same type of accommodations as traditional American hotels, so it's important to do your research.
  • Budget
    How much you want to spend per night (or per person, per night) is arguably the most important considering when deciding where to stay.
  • Services/features
    What are your non-negotiables when it comes to hospitality services and features? Non-smoking? Free breakfast? Parking? A view of the city?
  • Design/aesthetic
    In your mind, is a hotel just a spot to catch some Zzzs, shower, scarf down breakfast, and head back out again? If so, the design and overall aesthetic of the property may not be as important of a consideration. But if you have plans to spend time around the hotel, maybe perch yourself in a corner to read or answer some emails, or head up to the rooftop restaurant for a pre-dinner drink, you may want to consider the vibe of the space.
With these five considerations in mind, we've narrowed down a list of the best Tokyo hotels across various styles and price points. But remember, travel is personal. That's why Journy builds every itinerary (complete with hotels, restaurants, activities, and transportation) from scratch, every time.

1Aman Tokyo

Address

Japan, 〒100-0004 Tokyo, Chiyoda, 大手町1-5-6
The Aman Tokyo was the Aman brand's first foray into urban accommodations. Like their hideaways in Sri Lanka and the mountains of France, though, the Aman Tokyo is a true sanctuary. Sitting 38 stories high, nearly every part of the hotel - from the individual rooms to the restaurant/lounge to the fitness center - surveys the city, with Mt. Fuji visible in the distance on clear days. 

The rooms (which are massive by all standards) each have a stone soaking tub and hinoki bath salts - an ideal indulgence after a long day of sightseeing. Aman's instinct for the luxurious combined with the distinctly Japanese aesthetic makes this hotel one of Tokyo's most beautiful. 

2Hoshinoya Tokyo

Address

1 Chome-9-1 Ōtemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tōkyō-to 100-0004, Japan
Ryokans — traditional inns characterized by tatami mat rooms, hot spring baths, and kaiseki dining — are typically considered rural retreats. Hoshino Resorts sought to change that with Hoshinoya Tokyo, the city's first "urban ryokan." 

Here, amid the high rises of Tokyo's Otemachi business district, guests can relax in the indoor-outdoor hot springs and sample traditional sweets in the tearoom-inspired lounges on each floor. Traditional ryokan cuisine is offered for both dinner and breakfast. Best of all, guests can enjoy all these amenities in a setting that clearly draws on classic Japanese aesthetics — a rare find among Tokyo's modern, Western-style hotels. 
Sounds like something you’d like to experience? Trust the experts at Journy to build an itinerary from scratch just for you with all the must-see sights and hidden gems.

3Park Hyatt Tokyo

Address

2, 3丁目-7-1 西新宿 新宿区 東京都 163-1055, Japan
Looking for a moment of luxury and opulence? Then the Park Hyatt Tokyo has exactly what you’re looking for, with incredible restaurants, bars, a spa, and unbeatable views of Mount Fuji. Choose from New York Grill & Bar on the 52nd floor, Kozue (authentic Japanese), or Girandole (French brasserie). The Peak Lounge & Bar on the 41st floor atrium is a great spot for a glass of Champagne, a cocktail, or afternoon tea. 

Originally designed as a private urban residence by Dr. Kenzo Tange, a Pritzker Prize-winning architect, the modern property boasts a private art collection (with original works in each guest room).

Not only that, the Park Hyatt is a true Tokyo icon thanks to its starring role in "Lost in Translation." A stay here gives you access to live jazz at the famous bar — and bragging rights to all your friends who've only seen it on screen. 

4Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo

Address

Japan, 〒100-6277 Tōkyō-to, Chiyoda-ku, 千代田区Marunouchi, 1 Chome−11−1, パシフィックセンチュリープレイス丸の内
The Four Seasons in Tokyo is understated and intimate compared to the brand's other locations around the world. With just 57 guest rooms and no grand lobby, it's a relaxed retreat from the ever-present crowds found elsewhere in the city.

In typical Four Seasons fashion, the hotel offers thoughtful services like free train greeters who will meet you at the adjacent Tokyo Station and escort you to the hotel. For weary travelers coming off a long-haul flight — or even just the two-hour trip from Kyoto — it's a welcome relief to have someone else whisk you through the massive station. 

This hotel is notably kid-friendly, offering myriad toys and treats to keep little ones entertained. 

5Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo

Address

Japan, 〒100-8283 Tōkyō-to, Chiyoda City, Marunouchi, 1-chōme−8−3 丸の内トラストタワ 本館
The Shangri-La Hotel in Tokyo boasts some of the city's most spacious guest rooms, each with expansive city views. While those features alone might convince you to stick to your room as much as possible, the rest of the hotel is just as lavish: dine on Italian fare with seasonal ingredients overlooking the Imperial Gardens at Piacere, indulge at the CHI spa, or stay active at the fully-equipped gym and indoor pool (with a view, naturally). Keep an eye out for the 50+ chandeliers adorning the property — some are hard to miss. 

The Shangri-La's meet and greet service ensures guests won't need to navigate the hectic Tokyo Station upon arrival — just provide your arrival information ahead of time to the concierge. 

6Grand Hyatt Tokyo

Address

6 Chome-10 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 106-0032, Japan
The elegant Grand Hyatt Tokyo hotel in the heart of Roppongi offers chic, club-level rooms and suites with access to a lounge, free breakfast, and evening appetizers.

There are seven sophisticated restaurants on-site (including Japanese, French, and Italian options) and three bars. Other amenities include a spa and a fitness center, as well as a red granite indoor pool, a whirlpool, and a sauna. 

If you want to wander off the property, there’s upwards of 200 shops and restaurants nearby, as well as an art museum and observatory.

7Ritz Carlton Tokyo

Address

9 Chome-7 Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 107-0052, Japan
Set in one of Tokyo's tallest buildings, the Ritz Carlton Tokyo is a case study in elevated urban luxury. Incredible views abound — in one direction you'll see Tokyo Tower, in another Mt. Fuji, and look the other way for the Olympic Stadium. And that's just from within the hotel. Venture just beyond the lobby doors for some of the city's finest dining, plentiful shopping, and the best contemporary art and design museums in Tokyo. 

Azure 45, the Michelin-starred restaurant within the 45th-floor lobby, offers some of the best dining at any five-star property in the city. The omakase course here is French-Japanese fusion at its finest.  

8Palace Hotel Tokyo

Address

1 Chome-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tōkyō-to 100-0005, Japan
The Palace Hotel has been a fixture among Tokyo's five-star properties since opening in 1961. That's not to say it's tired or dated. In fact, the entire hotel was rebuilt from the ground up in 2012, an upgrade that's obvious in the contemporary design and modern facilities. 

The Palace Hotel has a well-equipped fitness center and indoor pool, as well a full-service Evian spa. 

It also has the distinction of housing an outpost of Sushi Kanesaka — the main location in nearby Ginza is considered one of the top sushi omakase restaurants in the city, and this location holds itself to the same quality and service standards. Remarkably, Sushi Kanesaka is just one of seven fabulous restaurants at the Palace Hotel. Other offerings include French, Chinese, and teppanyaki. 

9Mandarin Oriental Tokyo

Address

2 Chome-1 Nihonbashimuromachi, Chuo City, Tokyo 103-0022, Japan
The Mandarin Oriental Tokyo epitomizes modern Japanese luxury. The rooms are adorned with kimono fabrics, washi paper, and bonsai trees, while the views remind guests of the megacity they're visiting. 

The hotel has all the features one would expect from this price point (full-service fitness and spa facilities, an attentive concierge), but the dining options really set the Mandarin Oriental apart from the city's other high-end hotels. This property has 12 restaurants alone, with a cumulative three Michelin stars. The theatrical Tapas Molecular Bar is the most well-known, but all are worthwhile. 

This hotel is just a couple minute's walk from the historic Mitsukoshi department store, and just another hop, skip, and jump from the shopping and dining in Ginza. 

10The Peninsula Tokyo

Address

Japan, 〒100-0006 Tokyo, Chiyoda, 有楽町1−8−1
The massive Peninsula hotel is a stylish, contemporary property alongside the Imperial Palace grounds. The interior decor heavily features the work of Japanese artists — keep an eye out for the 1,000+ pieces throughout the hotel. 

Rooms are spacious and include separate dressing rooms, plus high-tech amenities like nail dryers and control panels detailing the day's weather patterns.

The restaurant offerings include a rooftop grill serving Kobe beef, Cantonese cuisine, traditional kaiseki dining, as well as the requisite afternoon tea in the lobby. 

11Imperial Hotel 

Address

1 Chome-1-1 Uchisaiwaichō, Chiyoda-ku, Tōkyō-to 100-8558, Japan
While a few luxury properties ring the Imperial Palace grounds, only one truly has ties to the royal family: the Imperial Hotel. This has contributed to its destination status for guests and other tourists. 

The gargantuan 931-room hotel also hosts 14 restaurants, three bars, and numerous banquet rooms, bridal salons, and shopping malls. This lends the hotel a sense of grandeur, as well as a certain hustle and bustle, but the staff keep up with a smile. 

12Conrad Tokyo

Address

1 Chome-9-1 Higashishinbashi, Minato, Tokyo 105-7337, Japan
The Conrad is a sleek five-star property in Shiodome, the business district just on the edge of upscale shopping and dining mecca Ginza. The minimalist design is accented by the work of Japanese artists. If those aren't enough to look at, the city views beyond the 37th-floor hotel will keep your eyes occupied. 

The restaurants offer everything from upscale Cantonese to a light lunch. Their bar, the Twenty Eight, is a popular choice for a night cap. 

13The Capitol Hotel Tokyu

Address

2 Chome-10-3 Nagatacho, Chiyoda, Tokyo 100-0014
While the Capitol Hotel has been around since the 60s, returning guests would barely recognize it based on its current reincarnation. Since being completely revamped in 2010 by renowned architect Kengo Kuma, the hotel has become a paragon of contemporary Japanese design. The lobby bar not only allows visitors to enjoy the hotel's design, but also the expansive whisky collection. 

The hotel features six restaurants and a two-story fitness and spa center, including an indoor pool. 

14The Tokyo Station Hotel

Address

1 Chome-9-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tōkyō-to 100-0005, Japan
Set in a Renaissance-style building dating back to 1915, this upscale hotel is directly connected to Tokyo Station and two kilometers from the Imperial Palace. 

Airy rooms with classic furnishings offer free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks, plus tea and coffeemakers. Chic, upgraded rooms feature chandeliers and plush fabrics; some have palace or station views. Suites, some of which are split-level, have separate lounges.

A free breakfast buffet is served in an atrium lobby lounge. Other dining options include high-end French and Cantonese restaurants, an Italian eatery and a cozy cocktail bar. There's also a gym and an expansive spa.

15Hyatt Regency Tokyo

Address

2 Chome-7 Nishishinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tōkyō-to 160-0023, Japan
If you’re looking for a hotel that is centrally-located, you can’t do much better than the Hyatt Regency Tokyo. Set in Shinjuku’s commercial area, you’ll be just a few minutes away from Shinjuku Central Park and not too far from Tokyo Tower.

There are five sophisticated restaurants (including Chinese, French, and Italian options) and three bars. Other amenities include a spa and a fitness center, as well as an indoor pool, a whirlpool, and a sauna.

16Keio Plaza Tokyo

Address

2 Chome-2 Nishishinjuku, Shinjuku City, Tokyo 160-0023, Japan
If you’re looking for a hotel with a view, then look no further than Keio Plaza Hotel in Tokyo. This luxurious hotel comes with some of the best staff in the business: an army of bell-hops and kimono-clad musicians playing koto in the lobby.

Located in Shinjuku, it is far enough removed from the hustle and bustle that you won’t be kept up all night, but close enough for you to walk right back into the action every morning.

17The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho

Address

Japan, 〒102-8585 JP-13Chiyoda-ku, Kioichō, 1, Chiyoda-ku 1-2 Kioi-cho Chiyoda-ku Tokyo
The Prince Gallery Kioicho is a contemporary, high-rise hotel in the business district of Akasaka. The property has two restaurants — an upscale Japanese spot as well as a more casual Western-style one. The two bars each have exceptional views.

The rooms' tech features, like bed-side control panels for lighting, air conditioning, and the "Do Not Disturb" sign, as well as a tablet, contribute to the property's overall sense of modern luxury. 

For Marriott Bonvoy point holders, the Prince Gallery Kioicho is a no brainer in terms of location and amenities for the price. 

18Andaz Tokyo 

Address

Japan, 〒105-0001 Tōkyō-to, Minato City, Toranomon, 1-chōme−23−4 虎ノ門ヒルズ
The Andaz Tokyo is a boutique-like property from the Hyatt brand in the business district of Toranomon. Despite its big-name associations, the hotel incorporates local design elements like washi paper artwork and the massive bonsai tree in the lobby. 

The property features three restaurants: a grill specialize in Japanese aged beef, a burger restaurant, and a small sushi bar. 

The highlight here? The rooftop bar, which has more to it than just the views. The skilled bartenders preside over a menu of signature cocktails, and can whip up an excellent iteration of whatever you're craving. 

19Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel

Address

26-1 Sakuragaokacho, Shibuya, Tokyo 150-8512, Japan
The Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel is an upscale high-rise hotel located in the heart of hip, bustling Shibuya. With Shibuya Station mere steps away, it's hard to find a hotel more central than this.

Several cuisines are available at the hotel's numerous restaurants, while the top-floor bar features panoramic views. 

The executive-level floors come with amenities and views more comparable to Tokyo's five-star accommodations, plus free access to the fitness and pool facilities (other guests need to pay a supplement to use these areas). 

20Trunk Hotel

Address

5 Chome-31 Jingumae, Shibuya, Tokyo 150-0001, Japan
Nestled on a quiet street, Trunk Hotel is a mere 10-minute walk away from the colorful frenzy of Harajuku and Omotesando (like a youth-driven Fifth Avenue of Tokyo) and a wander away from Fuglen and Streamer coffee shops, the Shibuya Cheese Stand and other walk-worthy stops.

From the outside, it looks like a geometric layer cake, gray angles stacked on top of gray angles, with verdant greenery, like frosting, bursting from each layer. By Mount Fuji Architects, the hotel is built from stone, metal and upcycled wood from old Japanese houses; Jamo Associates and Line-Inc designed the interiors.

The lobby bar is abuzz at all hours, with a restaurant featuring an airy chef’s counter facing an open kitchen. Choose terrace seating or gather your own group in the private dining room as you lunch on cheery bento boxes accompanied by fresh juices and a wide selection of low-intervention wines. You’ll also find sake, shochu and hyper-locally brewed beers, plus honey from the Shibuya Honeybee Project.

21Hotel Koe

Address

3-7 Udagawachō, Shibuya-ku, Tōkyō-to 150-0042, Japan
Hotel Koe is an ultra-modern hotel from Japanese fashion retailer Stripe International. It's appropriately stylish, with ample concrete and wood plus a muted grey and blue color scheme. 

With only 10 rooms, the guest quarters are quiet. But on the ground floor, visitors will find a bustling restaurant and bakery, plus a clothing and lifestyle goods store. Step just outside the hotel to begin exploring Shibuya, the city's hippest shopping and dining district. 

22The Royal Park Hotel Shiodome

Address

1 Chome-6 Higashishinbashi, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 105-0021, Japan
The Royal Park Hotel Shiodome is a mid-range hotel located amid the high-rises of business-centric Shiodome. With incredible views and a location within walking distance of Tsukiji Market and the dining and shopping of Ginza, this hotel punches above its weight. 

The property has a fitness center as well as four restaurants and a bar. Breakfast is available for an additional fee. 

23Park Hotel 

Address

Japan, 〒105-0021 Tokyo, Minato, Higashishinbashi, 1 Chome−7−1, Shiodome Media Tower
The Park Hotel would be a straightforward option for travelers seeking mid-range convenience in Tokyo, but the focus on local artists really sets it apart. Travelers can choose to stay in a room decked out by a contemporary Japanese artist, while other works are scattered throughout the hotel. 

Several restaurants on the premises offer local and Western options. There is also a fitness center, spa, and laundry service. 

24Hotel Gracery Shinjuku 

Address

Japan, 〒160-8466 Tokyo, Shinjuku, 歌舞伎町1丁目19−1
Hotel Gracery Shinjuku is an affordable, no-frills property right in the heart of Shinjuku — mere steps from the Robot Show, Samurai Museum, Yakitori Lane, and Golden Gai. And attached directly to the hotel? The 12-meter, smoke-blowing Godzilla replica.

The hotel maintains a minimal, classically Japanese design throughout. The rooms' windows, while smaller than those at higher priced properties, offer high-rise city views. 

Hotel Gracery Shinjuku has two restaurants — one serving Italian cuisine plus a cafe with breakfast buffet and light meals. 

25Shinjuku Granbell Hotel

Address

2 Chome-14-5 Kabukicho, Shinjuku, Tokyo 160-0021, Japan
The Shinjuku Granbell Hotel is a centrally located, design-minded hotel in the bustling heart of Shinjuku. What it lacks in space and amenities it makes up for with affordability and incredible proximity to the best of Tokyo. Nearby, find the Samurai Museum, Robot Show, Yakitori Lane, and Golden Gai. And from Shinjuku Station, access the rest of the city and beyond. 

26The Okura Tokyo 

Address

2-chōme-10-4 Toranomon, Minato City, Tōkyō-to 105-0001, Japan
The Okura Tokyo was originally built in 1962 ahead of the 1964 Olympics, and from its unveiling was considered a modernist design destination. Then, in 2015, the property was demolished (amid protests from historians) to make way for shiny new skyscrapers. 

The reincarnated hotel was newly opened in 2019, and this construction is equally as iconic. The beloved lobby was recreated in detail, pendant lamps and all. 

The Okura Tokyo has seven restaurants and bars, a full-service spa, fitness center, and pool, as well as a Shinto shrine and tea ceremony room. Across from the main entrance is the Okura Museum of Art. 

27Hotel Sunroute Plaza-Shinjuku

Address

2 Chome-2-3-1 Yoyogi 渋谷区 Shibuya-ku, Tōkyō-to 151-0053 Japan
The Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku is a simple, no-nonsense option for accommodations in the heart of Shinjuku. The Italian restaurant on-site offers a breakfast buffet, while the bar offers shochu, whisky, and cocktails. 

28Hotel New Otani

Address

4-1 Kioicho, Chiyoda 102-8578, Tokyo Prefecture
The Hotel New Otani covers more bases than most hotels — inside, you'll find the usual restaurants, bars, fitness center and spa in addition to hairdressers, florists, dentists, doctors, and a post office. There's even a 400-year-old garden on site. All of this comes in a luxurious, traditionally Japanese package.  

29Shinjuku Prince Hotel

Address

1-chōme-30-1 Kabukichō, Shinjuku City, Tōkyō-to 160-8487, Japan
The Shinjuku Prince Hotel is a long-standing property directly in Shinjuku. It's a popular choice for budget-conscious travelers who value location over space or an abundance of amenities.
