Scale of 90-100
Billed as the only true onsen ryokan in central Tokyo, this property occupies a 17-floor high-rise in the financial district. To maintain a feeling of serenity in a larger hotel, the 84 rooms are divided into groups of six, with each floor functioning as a self-contained ryokan with lounges offering tea and confections throughout the day. Rooms are decorated in a Japanese minimalist style with tatami-lined floors, low Western-style beds, hidden televisions and baths with deep soaking tubs and TOTO washlet toilets. Views are modest but accented by shoji paper screens and a decorative steel lattice veiling that covers the outside of the building. The well-regarded restaurant serves French-inspired kaiseki cuisine. After a long day out exploring Tokyo, soaking in the hot-spring waters of the rooftop onsen is ideal. Spa treatments and river cruises can be arranged.
