The Ritz – Tokyo

The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo is completely as you would expect, it isn’t cheap but you don’t stay in the Ritz if you’re watching your pennies. The staff are super polite and make you feel nothing but welcome and it has all the amenities one would expect – bar, restaurant, pool, gym, there is even a Rolls Royce to pick you up from the airport if you’re feeling like treating yourself.

The hotel is situated in the Roppongi district, Tokyo midtown. The area is generally geared towards westerners or “ gaijin “ and well known for its nightlife. The streets are heaving most nights and especially so on weekends so it shouldn’t be too difficult to engineer an interesting night out. The hotel is located next to Roppongi train station and not hard to get to by train. In close proximity are the Mori Art Museum, National Art Center Tokyo and the Roppongi Hills shopping and entertainment complex, so there is plenty to keep you occupied. That being said, you would probably be happy enough spending your time in your room; it’s impeccably clean and has everything you would need to hide out – flat screen TV with programing in several languages, free Wi-Fi, a massive bathtub that faces another TV, hors d’oeuvres and beverages served several times a day up until around eleven in the evening and the remote controlled curtains are certainly a nice touch.

I can’t really recommend the The Ritz-Carlton enough, it should definitely be experienced if you have the chance.
