Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills
Japan, 〒105-0001 Tōkyō-to, Minato-ku, Toranomon, 1−23−4
6th October 2015

A stellar newcomer in hotel-saturated Tokyo, this is the third Hyatt-operated property in the city – the most famous one, of course, being the Park Hyatt.

Location
Slightly odd location in a ”non-neighbourhood”. However, it’s very central and it’s super easy to get around town using subway or taxi.
Who stays?
The slick and sophisticated crowd. It’s next generation old money. Not flash. The modern business traveller and the subdued luxury seekers.
Style and Character
It’s very beautiful. Everywhere; the level of detailing is exquisite.
Serenity is my key word. It’s so tight and understated. Very much modern luxury; I felt completely at home; it exuded an, at once, Nordic and Japanese aesthetic; as close to perfect as can be.
Service
Flawless service; personal, intimate, friendly. Never too much; always just right. Just perfect.
Rooms and Suites
Perfect views of Tokyo tower (if you happen to be in a room on the right side of the hotel). Big rooms and extremely comfortable; very unlike Tokyo in general, I might add.
Food and Drink
Best breakfast I’ve ever had in Tokyo; ample selection, fabulous locale. Really great food in other outlets; the perfect mix of local fare and international cuisine.
And: I loved the guest only lobby happy hour
Roof top great for blue hour and cocktail hour; great.
Features, Wellness, and Amenities
Spa flawless, pool amazing. Fabulous treatment menu, too!
As a gym freak, I really appreciated the very well-equipped gym.
It became something I didn’t want to miss and did it everyday.
Perceived Value
Everything is Tokyo is expensive - this is worth it
Verdict
My new place to stay in Tokyo
