Century Southern Tower
Tokyo

Conveniently located five minutes from Shinjuku station, the Century Southern Tower stands proud at the top half of a skyscraper, overlooking the city’s largest park and the immense skyline beyond. All rooms have great panoramic views of the architectural landscape, including the Docomo building (modelled on New York’s Chrysler) and the iconic SkyTree. Under the cover of darkness, these views of the metropolis take on a magical quality – especially as Mount Fuji frames the horizon.

Our favourite rooms are the executive rooms as their corner windows are fantastic and they offer the most comforts. The minimal interior design of the rooms creates a calm atmosphere, thanks to the strong focus on neutral colours and clean lines.

The comfort and quality of rooms and breakfast offered at this hotel is possibly the best value in the downtown area, if one does not mind the lack of room service here and the ‘gym’, which is limited to a couple of window-side treadmills. Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, air conditioning, television and laundry service. On top of this, their restaurants serve some great cuisine, especially the authentic Japanese restaurant, ‘Horikawa’, on the 19th floor. If one wants to dine outside the hotel, there are plenty of options in Shinjuku as well as on the doorstop in Takashimaya Department Store, which is home to an outstanding food court.

This hotel’s location is incredibly useful – sat right on Shinjuku station’s south exit – guests have access to the city’s largest transport hub with connections to practically anywhere in Tokyo and beyond. As well as the 'shinkansen' bullet trains that Japan is famous for, one can also take multiple local trains and buses from here. Dining and shopping options are also in vast supply underneath the tracks here as it is said to be Tokyo’s busiest station – with no less than a million passengers going through it every single day! Several of Tokyo’s major sights are a mere walk away from this hotel, from Shinjuku park, Meiji shrine and Harajuku. Families are bound to feel welcome at this hotel as it is more child-friendly than most of the luxury hotels in the capital, plus it provides quick access to suitable entertainment, such as the iconic robot restaurant.

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
