“Amazingly Japanese, Modern and Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Hotel entirely rebuild from the venerable Palace Hotel. Magnificent combination of style between traditional Japanese and modern styles. Just beautiful everywhere in the lobby, in the rooms, in the restaurants and bars.... very attentive, efficient and polite service. As a typhoon approached I ventured to the concierge to rebook my flight earlier. The concierge rearranged everything on a sunday morning in 5 minutes. The room is spacious well appointed with a delightful balcony and incredible view on the imperial palace ground. At night incredible silence despite beeing at the very heart of Tokyo.
This place is just special. Of course other hotels in Tokyo are also excellent: The Ritz Carlton in Midtown, The Peninsula nearby in Yorakucho, The Mandarin Oriental in Nihonbashi, the Park Hyatt in Shinjuku, Capital Tokyo in Akasaka ( may be the clever quality vs. price choice!) but in my view the Palace Hotel will give you both incredible beauty and luxury and a a genuine Japanese experience. May be the best city hotel in the world.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. I was lucky to be upgraded to 23rd floor.

Well, if you think you have stayed at the Best Hotel ever, and you have yet to bunk at the Palace Hotel in Tokyo, think again.
No detail is overlooked with excellence being an everyday standard.
The rooms are spacious and inviting, with views abounding. The Concierge floors are crazy good and the lounge,service and all the trimmings is excellent.

Room baths are ample and full of ammenities. Let's face it, this is a real, and rare business or family treat.....four thumbs up for sure.

Room Tip: 18th floor and above...try to ask for a balcony....it is worth it!

We stayed for two nights after arriving late from Lax and cannot say better things about this place. Rooms are big for Japan and bathrooms are huge and even the worst rooms have a fantastic view of the park and imperial palace. We loved how roomy and spacious the lobby area is and how tranquil and relaxing the setting is along the moat, yet sitting right above Otemachi station and a short walk to Tokyo station. Next time I visit Tokyo, this will be my one and only option.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice.

If you're looking for an upmarket hotel around the Marunouchi / Chiyoda area then this hotel is perfect - only a short walk (5-6 mins) from Tokyo Station. It's a well maintained and formal hotel - rooms are large for Tokyo standard and the views over the palace grounds are fantastic.

The gym is good and the spa / gym staff are helpful and willing to show you around.

If you want to eat / drink somewhere a bit less formal than the hotels bars and lounges try the restaurants and pub in the basement complex; they're good value for money and a bit more relaxed.

This is *the* hotel to choose in Tokyo! It offers unique views of the Imperial Palace garden, and has sumptuous rooms with modern technology (like mirror built-in TV in the bathroom, 46 inch TV in the room). I had a great time there, either on the large balcony admiring the view, or in the Evian Spa and its 20m long pool. Service was irreproachable, and housekeeping of an elite level. After my stay here, I won't go anywhere else when back in Tokyo!

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel with my spouse during our first trip to Japan. The hotel is located close to the Imperial Palace and we had a beautiful view over a park with the Tokyo skyscrapers which was amazing especially at evening. The room is large, the bathroom is perfect, the beds are very comfortable and we had a large balcony as well. The staff is very polite and professional. Free wireless internet is available all over the hotel. The Ginza district is in a waking distance, other destinations can be reached by the subway which has a station under the hotel. The only negatives are that the breakfast is nothing special, the inroom lightening is tricky and we missed a proper desk (but we had a relatively huge table we could use for working). Altogether one of the best hotels I have ever been to.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking downtown Tokyo

It was recommended by an sub-contractor friend. I believe it is one of the best domestically operated hotel in Tokyo. The hotel has been totally refurbished, since Tokyo is an extremely competitive hospitality market. The hotel facilities are not only first class, but also the service. Not only was the club floor service was superb, but also the bell captain was extremely knowledgeable of the city. Two thumbs up!. If one would have time, I would highly recommend their French restaurant, Crown. I believe they are one there way towards earning michelin star!
Two thumbs up!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the palace is the feel of an oasis in the metropolitan!
