Fresh and pretty in its ki­mono-in­spired shades of char­treuse, vi­o­let and gold, the Palace Ho­tel Tokyo was re­con­structed on the site of the 1961 ho­tel built in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the Tokyo Olympics. The in­te­ri­ors have an airy, con­tem­po­rary Japanese style with a hint of retro charm. Book a room with a bal­cony – a rare fea­ture in Tokyo – to have break­fast over­look­ing the Im­pe­rial Palace gar­dens. ↓ Busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties The 24-hour busi­ness cen­tre has com­fort­able work­sta­tions with PCs and VoIP tele­phones. The sleek ’60s-style meet­ing rooms have the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and glossy au­to­matic doors that slide open to re­veal a ded­i­cated lounge. Wi-fi Fast and com­pli­men­tary through­out. Gue­strooms have uni­ver­sal adap­tors and con­nec­tion kits for your de­vices. Food and wine There are sev­eral el­e­gant in­ter­na­tional din­ing op­tions but Grand Kitchen has some­thing no other restau­rant in Tokyo can boast: a wide ter­race right on the moat of the Im­pe­rial Palace. Royal Bar, re-cre­ated to echo the 1961 orig­i­nal with its au­then­tic fit­tings, is where im­pec­ca­bly suited bar­tenders still make the best Mar­ti­nis in town – stirred, not shaken, of course. Fit­ness and well­be­ing The fullser­vice Evian Spa aims to erase jet lag or you can do a few laps of the 20-me­tre in­door pool. The 24-hour gym has the lat­est car­dio and weights sta­tions. Un­der Ar­mour fit­ness gear can be hired if needed. Run route The fivek­ilo­me­tre Im­pe­rial Palace jog­ging route is prac­ti­cally at the front door.
