Beneath the towering Roppongi Hills skyscraper, this buzzing corner of the Minato district in Tokyo pulses with shopping and art galleries by day and the best nightlife in Japan after dark. And, if you plan on dancing into the wee hours, then you’ll need somewhere pleasant to rest your head. Here are the best hotels in Roppongi that you can now book with Culture Trip.

1. Hotel New Otani Tokyo

Fronted by an actual waterfall, Hotel New Otani is one of the more spectacular places to stay in Tokyo. Built to host hordes of incomers for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, it has 1,479 rooms in a variety of types and sizes, all with stunning views, an urban palette of greys and charcoals – and much more space than the average Japanese hotel. A smorgasbord of dining outlets makes it a no-brainer for foodies.

2. The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon

Jutting out of the Roppongi landscape is the Tokyo EDITION. The abundant greenery of the lobby and bar provides a stark contrast to the 206 rooms and suites, which are decked in pale woods and creams and offer stunning views of one of the most urban skylines in the world. A fine selection of restaurants and bars (including the Tom Aikens-helmed Jade Room + Garden Terrace) make it a great destination for dining.

3. Mitsui Garden Hotel Roppongi Tokyo Premier

Mitsui Garden offers a contemporary, design-forward stay in the middle of Roppongi. The hotel spans a variety of rooms and suites, but a linking thread is a thoughtful emphasis on bedding, with perks that range from custom-designed pillows to high-quality mattresses. You might need a good snooze, too – there are a stylish, low-lit onsite gym and an elegant bar lounge with picturesque cityscapes.

4. The Capitol Hotel Tokyu

With more traditional Japanese touches than most hostels this size in Tokyo, the Capitol is a good choice for you if you seek a bit of peace. The 251 rooms are minimalist yet spacious, in calming tones of charcoal and wood. And, with many located above the 27th floor, you can expect some excellent views. Need more Zen? Head to the in-house spa for treatments based on traditional wisdom.

5. The Lively Azabujuban Tokyo

As the name suggests, the Lively Azabujuban packs more flair than the average Tokyo hotel. This is evident from the lobby and bar, which seem to have plucked design influences ranging from the Art Deco movement to 1950s Manhattan. The 62 rooms (families should opt for the four-bed Lofts) are furnished in handsome shades of grey and feature high-quality Serta mattresses.

6. The Okura

One of the most iconic hotels in Tokyo is the Okura. Since its renovation, it has something of a dual nature, combining the 2019-era Prestige Tower with the more traditional Japanese aesthetic of the Heritage Wing. A common thread is an emphasis on dining, with lauded outlets that serve French and Chinese cuisines, in addition to Japanese.

7. The Prince Park Tower Tokyo

Seemingly a companion to the iconic Tokyo Tower is the Prince Park. Located in the middle of the eponymous green zone, rooms combine light coloured tones and vast windows, perfect for taking in the views. The in-house bakery has loyal fans, and the hotel also has a bowling alley. In particular, staff get positive feedback for their service, and they are happy to help you navigate the city.

8. Grand Hyatt Tokyo

Roppongi is famous for its hospitality scene, and this luxury hotel plays a big role in that. Alongside the upscale international dining (there are seven restaurants and three bars), the five-star Grand Hyatt has 387 opulent guest rooms and suites, the Nagomi Spa and a chic fitness centre and gym, all furnished with moody traditional Japanese decor.

9. ANA InterContinental Tokyo

Food and drink are the stars of this upscale property − choose from 10 onsite dining options, such as the Michelin-starred French eatery Pierre Gagnaire or the picturesque Club InterContinental bar and lounge on the 35th floor. This InterContinental is truly mammoth, with 844 guest rooms, a glamorous outdoor pool, a 24-hour health club and a modern business centre.

10. Sotetsu Fresa Inn Tokyo-Roppongi

Less than a minute’s walk from Roppongi station, Sotetsu Fresa Inn is about as central as you can get in this neighbourhood. Guests of the 201 rooms enjoy free wifi throughout the hotel, a tasty breakfast at the in-house Suzucafe, laundry facilities and, of course, that enviable location.

11. The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo

Beginning on the 45th floor of the tallest building in Tokyo, the Ritz-Carlton features 245 five-star rooms that exude old-school cool through marble bathrooms and polished-wood finishes. Dive into the spa, sauna and gym; eat and drink your way through three restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Azure 45; and book a club-level room to take advantage of the Club Lounge on the 53rd floor, which supplies views of Mount Fuji and the chaotic streets below.

12. Act Hotel Roppongi

With direct access to the Roppongi-Itchome subway station, and perched just across the road from Izumi Garden Tower, Hotel Villa Fontaine is one of the most convenient places to stay in Roppongi. Add to that clean-lined functional rooms, and you’ve got an ideal base for your adventures. Even better? The day starts with a hearty breakfast buffet with Western and Japanese dishes.

15. Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi

The Tokyo outlet of the Candeo chain comprises 149 guest rooms, all fitted with a spacious seating area and flat-screen televisions. There’s also a 24-hour front desk, a delicious breakfast buffet, laundry service, plus a spa and fitness centre. But, the real highlight is the array of sauna facilities − the hotel is home to both cold and warm baths, dry and mist sauna and an outdoor sky bath with views over Tokyo.
