Housed in an 18-storey building, and encased in a black metal grid, Hoshinoya Tokyo is the city’s first super luxury five-star ryokan with a modern spin.
Hoshinoya Tokyo is surrounded by office towers in the Otemachi business district and is located between Tokyo Station and the Imperial Palace. Tokyo Tower and Sensoji Temple are close by, so this Tokyo luxury hotel is in quite a central location.
Hoshinoya Tokyo occupies the entire building and the 84 guestrooms are split into groups of six over 14 floors. Each floor resembles a self-contained ryokan inn and features an Ochanoma lounge, exclusive to guests staying on that floor. Seasonal tea and snacks are served during the day, with alcohol (sake!) on offer long into the night.
The lounge also features a library and is furnished with desks and sofas. The Yuri and Sakura bedrooms have low chairs with curved arcs of wood, custom-made by Japanese craftsmen. The bathrooms contains a bathtub and shower stall and are encased in glass which frosts at the flick of a switch. The south-facing Kiku rooms at Hoshinoya Tokyo are twice the size of the regular rooms with a spacious living area and enjoy plenty of sunshine.
The hotel restaurant sees executive chef Noriyuki Hamada working his magic crafting exquisite French cuisine with Japanese ingredients. Booking is essential as there are only 10 tables. Guests, segregated by gender, can enjoy the onsen baths on the 17th-floor. The hot spring waters flow from 1,500m beneath the hotel. One of the black-walled communal baths is located directly underneath a double height skylight, enabling dreamy cloud-gazing while soaking.
Hoshinoya Tokyo also features a ryokan-style spa with Japanese-inspired treatments.Review updated February 11, 2017.
