With a superb location alongside the green expanse of the Imperial Palace, the aptly named Palace Hotel Tokyo is a classic, elegant and incredibly comfortable place to stay.
If you’re looking for elegant luxury in a stunning and convenient location, then the Palace Hotel Tokyo is a brilliant choice. It’s less than 10 minutes’ walk from Tokyo Station and directly next to the Imperial Palace. Joggers can join the hundreds of locals who run around the palace every morning.
Having been in business for over 50 years (but recently fully renovated), the Palace Hotel has an air of classic, understated elegance that is lacking from some of the newer entries in the Tokyo luxury hotel market. The staff is polished and attentive and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Try to get one overlooking the Imperial Palace (one of the best views in Tokyo). Some rooms even have small private balconies, an almost unheard of luxury in Tokyo!
With several excellent on-site restaurants and bars, a great spa and a good gym, the Palace covers all the bases well. Best of all, the rates here are significantly cheaper than at other hotels in this class. Therefore, it’s a great choice for fail-safe luxury in Tokyo!
