On our recent trip to Tokyo, we were enthralled by the charm of the city. It is ultra-modern, advanced, vibrant, and full of life. Most important of all, unusual and quirky activities abound. While searching for the coolest places to stay in Tokyo, Park Hotel Tokyo, in particular, caught our attention. With art as the primary focus, Park Hotel Tokyo turns guest rooms into artwork where you can fully immerse yourself in art. Now, let us show you around the coolest hotel in Tokyo!
Park Hotel Tokyo: Best Luxury Hotel for Design Lovers
If you are into art and design, then you will not want to miss Park Hotel Tokyo. Stepping into the 25th-floor atrium, you know you’re in for a sensory experience.
Natural light shining through the glass ceiling of the ten-storey atrium, creating an inviting and relaxing atmosphere. Not just the atrium, Japanese aesthetics can be found in all corners of Park Hotel Tokyo, including the lobby and individual guest rooms.
What truly distinguishes Park Hotel Tokyo from all the others is its Artist Rooms on the 31st floor.
Each of the 31 rooms is individually designed by a different Japanese artist. Through hand-painted murals, the artists transformed the standard rooms into an imaginative space for guests. Some incorporate a black and white color scheme while others use vibrant colors. Each room is an extraordinary artwork itself and guarantees a memorable stay.

During our stay, we stayed at En Room, designed by artist Mariko Kobayashi. She used threads as the main material to sew together a forest, one with all kinds of plants and animals. From the walls and ceiling to bed scarf and pillows, you can find her creativity all over the room. Even though we were inside the hotel, we felt we were surrounded by nature!
Using colorful threads, Kobayashi attempted to convey the Japanese concept of En (connection). It is believed that all living things are interconnected. We are connected with everything in nature, and that interconnected and interdependent nature of life should not be forgotten.
Other Artist Rooms
On our visit, we had the chance to visit other artists rooms. The monochrome Washi room features Japanese traditional paper. Carp room brings the fascinating Chinese legend of the Dragon Carp to life. The tranquility of Japanese countryside is captured in Santoyama Landscapes room. In Wabi-Sabi Room, we try to accept and appreciate imperfection.
All the rooms are beautifully designed, making it difficult to even leave the room! Can you see why Park Hotel Tokyo is the coolest luxury hotel in Tokyo?
Centrally-Located with Stunning Tokyo City View
Aside from its artistic design, what we also loved about Park Hotel Tokyo is its convenient location. Set in the buzzing Shiodome area, Park Hotel Tokyo is directly connected to train stations. Only 20 minutes from Haneda Airport and 60 minutes from Narita Airport, you can conveniently access both through Sky Access Line, without transfer.
Ginza and Tsujiki Fish Market are within easy walking distance. Whether you want to go on a shopping spree or have a sushi breakfast at 5 am, it is the best hotel to stay in Tokyo without all the hassle.
Thanks to its location, the hotel also offers stunning views of the city skyline. From the guest rooms, Tokyo city view (including Tokyo Tower!) can be admired through the large windows.
