Japan is known for its top-notch service, whether in a capsule hotel, a snazzy high-rise, or a stately ryokan—so bear that in mind when planning where to stay in Tokyo. Expect polite, efficient help and beautiful design around every corner.

Of course, some properties are known for taking this service to another level. At the Peninsula, which boasts a prime location across from the Imperial Palace, rooms are equipped with luxe amenities like vanities with nail dryers, and marble bathrooms with built-in TVs. In the Park Hyatt Tokyo, which occupies a tower in the Shinjuku district, rooms have panoramic views and an indulgent spa, giving new meaning to the term urban oasis. Unwind with a cocktail in the hotel’s New York Bar, made famous in Lost in Translation. Among Tokyo’s ryokans, Andon Ryokan is one of the best, with just 24 rooms outfitted in antiques, a jacuzzi, and a rooftop bar. For budget accommodations, the First Cabin Tsukiji is sleek and efficient, with rooms inspired by airplane cabins.
