Beneath the towering Roppongi Hills skyscraper, this buzzing corner of Tokyo pulses with shopping and art galleries by day and Japan’s best nightlife after dark. If you plan on dancing the night away in Roppongi’s legendary nightclubs, then book your bed in one of the best hotels in the district.

Roppongi is famous for its hospitality scene and this luxury hotel plays a big role in that, boasting seven restaurants and three bars within its four walls. As well as a range of upscale international dining options, the five-star Grand Hyatt includes 387 opulent guest rooms and suites, the Nagomi Spa on the fifth floor, business and meeting facilities, plus a chic fitness centre and gym, all furnished with moody traditional Japanese decor.
Food and drink is the star of this 4.5-star property − choose from 10 on-site dining options like Michelin-star French eatery Pierre Gagnaire restaurant or the picturesque Club InterContinental bar and lounge on the 35th floor. Sitting right next door to the ARK Hills development, Tokyo’s InterContinental is truly mammoth, with 844 guest rooms, a glamorous outdoor pool, a 24-hour health club and a modern business centre.
Less than a minute’s walk from Roppongi station, hotels in this neighbourhood don’t get any more central than Sotetsu Fresa Inn. Guests of the 201 three-star rooms enjoy free WiFi throughout the hotel, tasty breakfast at the in-house Suzucafe on the first floor, a fully-equipped business centre, laundry facilities and, of course, that enviable location.
Beginning on the 45th floor of Tokyo’s tallest building, the Ritz-Carlton features 245 five-star rooms that exude old-school cool through their marble bathrooms and polished wood finishes. Dive into the spa, sauna and gym, eat and drink your way through three restaurants, including the Michelin-star Azure 45, and book a club level room to take advantage of the Club Lounge on the 53rd floor, which supplies panoramic views of Mount Fuji and the chaotic streets below.
The 68 guestrooms at this boutique hotel are a bargain for the comfort on offer. Act Hotel provides a gorgeous rooftop tea garden, spacious suites containing living rooms and kitchenettes, bathrooms with bidets and rain showers, and bespoke furniture by local designer Ostuka throughout the entire property, all at a great-value price.
Forty-seven guest rooms comprise this luxury boutique hotel, each of them uniquely and playfully themed. There’s a garden suite, a patio room with an open bathroom, an ultra-modern ‘four cube’ suite, a Japanese-style ‘Zen’ room − the list goes on. There is also a series of stylish serviced apartments to book for longer stays in Tokyo’s entertainment capital.
The Remm Roppongi was only unveiled in 2017, so this ultra-modern 3.5-star property is still shiny and new. The 400 compact rooms are only 400 metres from Roppongi Hills and each features a minibar, air-conditioning, tea and coffee-making facilities, room service plus an Italian restaurant on the top floor.
Perched just across the road from the Izumi Garden Tower, the Hotel Villa Fontaine is one of the most convenient places to stay in Roppongi. The 3.5-star hotel enjoys direct access to the Roppongi-Itchome subway station, air-conditioned rooms with a fridge and a flat-screen TV, and a tasty Western-style buffet breakfast, surrounded by Roppongi’s exciting galleries and nightspots.
Candeo’s Tokyo location is made up of 149 guest rooms all fitted with a spacious seating area and flat-screen televisions, 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 a cold bath, warm bath, dry sauna, mist sauna and a stunning outdoor sky bath with spectacular views over Tokyo.
This three-star property delivers smart, sensible and stylish rooms at an affordable price. With 76 well-appointed rooms, a simple on-site café as well as a convenient location near Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown mall, Hotel Arca Torre is the ideal choice for budget travellers wanting to stay in the heart of Roppongi.
