Five reasons to love Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills

  • Tokyo, Japan

We recently visited Tokyo and fell in love with the city, the people and food. During this trip, we stayed at the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills. Andaz is Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand and prides itself on combining luxury with uniquely local elements.

Andaz Tokyo is located in the business district of Toranomon and the building is called Toranomon Hills. It is the tallest building in Tokyo (excluding Tokyo Skytree and Tower) with 52 floors and 255 meters. The hotel was opened in 2014 and have 164 guest rooms on the top six floors of the building.

Toranomon Hills is in the business district and quite dead on the weekend. This was the only downside of this hotel but with a few minutes walk to Ginza line station and taxis always available it is not a major issue.

So why did we love this hotel?

1) Stunning design

This hotel is truly beautiful everywhere. Regardless if you are in the lobby, enjoying the spa, checking out the spa or in your room. Unique about the design is that there are two distinct universes blending together perfectly. Architecture firm Tony Chi & Associates in New York have designed the room and restaurants, while Tokyo based Simplicity has designed the spa, rooftop and Andaz Studios. Throughout the space is numerous Japanese artworks including the enormous Kumiko (an assemblage of wood pieces with no nails and washi paper art pieces in the elevators.

2) The panoramic view

The building is 255 meters tall and we stayed on the 48th floor. From our room, we had a panoramic view of Tokyo just like a postcard with Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Bay.

3) The Spa

One of a kind spa stretching 1400 square meters on the 37th floor. This space was designed by Simplicity and it is evident with the clean, modern design. One of the best hotel gyms that had top-of-the-line equipment. A 20-meter long pool swimming pool with this amazing view of Tokyo combined with floating jet bath, carbonated bath, and several saunas. Even the changing rooms were perfection with all the self-are products you’ll ever need!

4) The Room

The rooms were stunning. Large windows with one of the most spectacular views of the city. They are very spacious with our room being 50 square meters. Design and details that reflected Japan’s culture with purity, natural materials, and walnut throughout the space. Unique layout with almost a little labyrinth feeling with the bathroom and wardrobe. Sat on the desk editing photos and it was truly the best view I ever had next to my computer.

5) Food & Hospitality

Small things but Andaz goes the extra mile. In true Andaz fashion, all non-alcoholic drinks and locally-inspired snacks in the mini-bar is free of charge. Every day from 6 to 8 pm there is free snacks and drinks in the lobby. Not a full meal in any way but surprisingly good including the sake.

The last thing that we have to mention is the breakfast. Breakfast served in the main dining area and was fantastic. Guests are free to order two items of their à la carte menu as well as enjoy the very extensive breakfast buffet. Tip: Order the French toast!

In summary, is one of the top hotels that we ever have stayed at and can highly recommend. Everything from the design and rooms to service and food was impeccable!
