A short train ride from anywhere yet wrapped up in a bustle-free bayside bubble, this hotel is best of all worlds.

An exploding pinata, all colour and energy and promise, Tokyo is a love them or hate them type of city. Tackle the city's wildest nightlife in Shinjuku; drop by teenybopper haven in Harajuku; explore old town Tokyo in Asakusa; and hit the shops in Shibuya. Slide into the city's quiet cracks for a green tea late and some downtime; but remember there's no escaping this city's bright lights.
