Palace Hotel

A firm Ampersand Favourite, the Palace Hotel sits in a prime position in Tokyo overlooking the Imperial Palace Gardens to the capital's atmospheric skyline and Mount Fuji beyond. The spectacular property has a distinguished postwar history of hosting VIPs in the financial district of Marunouchi, and since its full renovation and reopening in 2012, continues to be a resounding success and one of the best hotels in this exhilarating city.

The chic and contemporary interior design has a distinctly fresh feel about it, and as soon as you walk into the light-filled, jade-green lobby you immediately feel welcome here. The soothing pastel tones compliment the subtle Japanese elements and modern artworks that are both weaved in throughout the hotel to great effect. This tasteful aesthetic has won The Palace Hotel recurring recognition from Condé Nast, Forbes Travel Guide and more.

The rooms and suites are also award-winning in themselves thanks to their generous size, remarkable comfort and airy marble bathrooms; not to mention their private balconies (a rarity in Tokyo!). We highly recommend staying in the higher category rooms or suites that come with these outdoor terraces in order to drink in those iconic views in exclusivity. Complimentary Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the hotel, and there are half a dozen great dining options - including al-fresco right beside the outer moat of the Imperial Palace - meaning you will feel well looked after here. The attentive service is spoiling, and the staff go above and beyond to make your stay here memorable - they are even happy to arrange special excursions for you, from lunch with sumo wrestlers to a bespoke architecture tour with local experts! Other amenities include a swimming pool and fitness centre, which are both complimentary (while there is a separate charge for the sauna, and spa services).

The Palace is just minutes away from the bullet train nexus of Tokyo but also the major subway hub of Otemachi, the ideal location for exploring the big city and beyond.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

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
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!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South 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!
- 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
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
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.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
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 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!
