The Peninsula Tokyo is an amazing hotel, ideally located in Ginza area.
Perfect for business trips and holidays.
They even have their own metro exit!
This hotel is up to the Peninsula standards, with the signature control panel to control everything in your huge room. They have all the amenities you would expect from a Peninsula Hotel: Coffee machine, minibar, flat screen TV, internet connection, A/C, in room safe, etc. Bathroom are huge and beautiful. The only "disturbing" point is the toilet control panel, but it's standard in japanese luxury hotels! I will let you experience it!
Regarding the lobby, I just have a comment: when you pass the rotating doors, you will have to walk a "central alley" with on your left people having their breakfast, and on your right a "waiting area" with tables and sofas. This is a little bit strange feeling. The sculpture located at the end of the alley is beautiful!
Do not miss the old Rolls-Royce usually parked on the right side of the hotel. It's painted in the Peninsula signature green, a really beautiful car, in perfectly working condition!
We stayed on the 20th floor, so the view was amazing! Try to get a room as high as possible.
The Peninsula Tokyo is really a top hotel. They even anticipate the future, as a rooftop helipad is already built, but the access door is hidden behind the wallpaper, as it is not yet authorised to fly an helicopter in Tokyo City. All they will have to do is a small cut in the wallpaper, and they are almost ready to transfer guests directly from airport to the hotel! Wow!
The concierge is really efficient and knowledgeable, providing you with any information you will need regarding the surroundings, the restaurants and bars, what to do, and so on.
During our stay we experienced a major earthquake, above 5 on Richter scale. Everything was shaking, cracking... frightening experience, but the building is still in place, with no cracks anywhere. It has been designed on purpose, with a big empty area in the middle. Have look at it, though the windows on every floor, facing the elevators, you will discover a beautiful sculpture!
The bar view is stunning, so feel free to get up-there in order to have a drink or two! (かんぱい, Kanpaï which means Cheers!)
Enjoy your stay in this Peninsula, among the best Peninsula hotel in the world! Your standards will definitely shift to a higher level. It will be hard for other hotels to reach this level of quality, worldwide.
さようなら (Sayonara, which means Good-bye!)
Get as high as you can in order to get a very nice view over Ginza.
