Tokyo Station Hotel
Tokyo

Built in 1915, bombed in 1945, rebuilt after the war then completely renovated this century, this distinctive red brick hotel has an eventful history. Modern Tokyo has grown up around it which means that views from the standard rooms are blocked by the raised tracks of the Chuo Line. However, rooms in the north and south atriums offer fascinating glimpses down on the hustle and bustle at the gates of Tokyo station, and the other side faces the sleek twin Marunouchi shopping and restaurant complexes. The Imperial Palace is just a short walk in that direction and Tokyo station can be directly accessed from the hotel for a dozen subway, overground and bullet train lines. With interior design by Richmond International, the lobby restaurant has the character of an English living room and there are great period piece mirrors and other touches in the rooms. The corridors must be the longest in the city though so we recommend splashing out on one of their mid-building maisonettes, near the ingeniously converted glass-roof attic breakfast room.

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

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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 would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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
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
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
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
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
