For a more traditional Japanese experience check into the Imperial Hotel; it oozes royal extravagance and it’s only fitting that it has welcomed some of the most important names in royalty and politics since 1890 (take a look at the fascinating exhibition in the lobby to find out more). The rooms are peaceful and have a very cozy, traditional feel to them which sets itself apart from newer skyscraper giants, and views include the Imperial Palace grounds and Hibiya Park. What is especially remarkable is the hotel service –  attentive and efficient guest attendants are able to fulfill any requests big or small. The wellness center is quintessentially Japanese, featuring a full onsen for some steam rejuvenation.

We absolutely love this hotel, which sits on top of the Marunouchi Trust Tower Main and is conveniently close to Tokyo Station. The rooms are elegant with modern majestic décor, and their bathrooms are particularly divine – they have tubs perched beside large windows with soaring views across the city. The Spa transports guests to a little Bali-esque world invigorating all the senses. The pool stretches along the side of the building with big white loungers and a fully equipped gym (you can also rent out gear so there is no need to pack a sports kit). There is also a private hot tub area behind the changing rooms for the ultimate post work-out soak.
