Conrad
Tokyo

The stylish and luxurious Conrad is a thoroughly modern hotel set amongst the high-rise architecture of the Shiodome district. Near to the renowned Tsukiji fish market and beautifully-designed Hamarikyu strolling gardens, the Conrad sits in a convenient and attractive location. An easy walk along an elevated walkway takes you to Shinbashi station on the Yamanote (circle) line for the main sightseeing loop, and the flagship stores of Ginza are on the doorstep.

Step into this hotel to be welcomed by an oasis of low-lit luxury, with the sleek cocktail bar offering views over Tokyo Bay to the colourful Rainbow Bridge. This contemporary scene catches one’s eye from the start and sets the tone for this hotel, for many modern touches are apparent in the interior design throughout the property. The effect is a fresh and stylish air, which can also be felt within the rooms.

Raised high above the ground, all of the rooms here offer panoramic city or bay views and have been tastefully designed to combine Japanese minimalist motifs with modern luxuries, such as cherry blossom print carpets and spacious bathtubs with floor-to-ceiling windows. One even has a magnificent view from the ample 25m swimming pool, in a light and airy atmosphere, thanks to the ingenious glass ceiling. The sauna and stream room provide perfect spots to relax, as does their Mizuki spa, which occupies an entire floor. Indulge in aromatherapy massages and treatments or soak in a Japanese cypress wood bathtub.

By all accounts the service levels here are impeccable, and the Conrad encapsulates all that is world class about Japan's hotels. Their Gordon Ramsay restaurant has now sadly closed, but their new French restaurant Collage features modern French dishes. Fine dining is also served in their Chinese restaurant, China Blue or enjoy the local cuisine at their Japanese restaurant, Kazahana.

Shiodome is a newly developed district, abuzz with gleaming skyscrapers – for a grittier experience, head to Shimbashi nearby. This district is relatively quiet during the day but gets far livelier as the sun goes down. Once the working day is over, locals fill the bars on every street corner to enjoy an evening drink - we highly recommend joining them!

Conrad is a great choice of hotel in Tokyo; not only is it close to the sights, it is also close to peaceful pockets of the city, our favourite being the Hamarikyu Gardens.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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!

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

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

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

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!

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!
