2. Mitsui Garden Hotel Ginza Premier 4* – Hotels Near Tokyo Christmas Market
Offering high-floor views of the city and Tokyo Bay, Mitsui Garden Hotel Ginza Premier provides chic and stylish rooms that went through a renovation in March 2013. It is a 4-minute walk from Shinbashi Station and a 10-minute walk from the Ginza area. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the property.
Located above the 16th floor, all rooms are fitted with a flat-screen TV on the wall, a fridge and an air purifier/humidifier. Guests can make coffee and tea, enjoy a soak in the private bath, or watch one of the video-on-demand movies available for purchase.

This polished downtown high-rise hotel is 1 km from the Hama-rikyu Gardens, 3 km from the Tokyo Imperial Palace, and 4 km from the observatory and light shows at the Tokyo Tower.
Warm rooms with city views feature Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs, seating areas and minifridges, as well as tea and coffeemakers. Upgraded rooms have tubs with skyline views; some include espresso machines, DVD players and Bose stereos.
Breakfast is available (fee). There’s also a modern Italian restaurant overlooking Tokyo, plus a lounge featuring live music and a bar made from a 600-year-old tree.
The Mitsui Garden is a rather curious mix of modest accommodation and a fairly upscale bar and restaurant. By “modest”, I mean that our room was inexpensive and very small (as we expected). The room had all the features of a typical hotel room, such as a desk and a wardrobe, but all arranged in a way that makes maximum use of available space. As a guest, you’ll need to be as ingenious as the interior designer if you want to find space to open your luggage.
When staying at the Mitsui Garden, we tended to use Shimbashi Station as our transport hub. It’s a short walk away and has good links to the main rail and subway lines of Tokyo.
Taxis were plentiful even at 5.00am and the market is a very short ride from the hotel. To top it off, the Mitsui Garden has great views of the Tokyo Tower. The lobby is a favourite spot for selfies with the tower in the background.
We decided not to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant. We never felt sufficiently hungry to justify the very considerable cost. There are numerous other nearby breakfast options, including of course Tsukiji Market.
How much does a room costs at Mitsui Garden Hotel Ginza Premier?
Prices start 100$/night for Moderate Room. The Superior Queen Room with Tokyo Tower View from Bath is 200$/room per night with breakfast included – if coming on a honeymoon this is the perfect choice for couples.

There are 3 elegant restaurants, 1 offering sushi-making classes and another serving Cantonese fare. There’s also a chic bar and a cafe, a posh spa, an indoor pool and a fitness center.
The Peninsula Tokyo has been my haven in Tokyo for many years.
Most aspects both in terms of hardware and service are in the superlative range.
The location is also hard to beat with easy access to train and metro stations, Ginza shopping and dining areas, and enjoy a splendid view of Hibiya Park and Imperial ground from the hotel rooms, pool terrace and restaurants.
Location location location! The closest station is Hibiya, but Yurakucho (more convenient in how many places you can get to from there) is just 5 mins easy walk.
Under the train tracks there are many many small restaurants, so cool! Also it’s just a 5-10 min walk to Ginza, or Tokyo Station. Super convenient!
Also the big park across the road and Imperial Palace nearby. Unfortunately we didn’t get to those this visit because it was way too hot.
The room is large and comfortable, and has a separate lounge area, so it feels a bit like an apartment. Double sinks (our room at Park Hyatt only had one so we appreciated it!) in the bathroom, and the typical Peninsula lovely large dressing room with butler box. Also USB ports and wireless charger in bedside drawers was handy – this is one modernisation we really noticed and enjoyed.
To start with location, The Peninsula is in Hibiya which is on the other side of the tracks from the famed Ginza shopping district but just opposite Hibiya Park and the Imperial Gardens. That is all properly swank. The interesting bit is Yarukucho (which you could argue is the true location of the hotel). This is the bit between the hotel and the Japan Rail and Shinkansen train tracks. This area is more down market but in the best possible way. The arches under the tracks are packed with local restaurants including a German beer garden and a couple of surprisingly good Italian joints.
What this also means is the entire Tokyo subway and rail systems are right there. For transportation within Tokyo and beyond, the Peninsula is unbeatable.
The Peninsula Tokyo is built on a surprisingly small parcel of land but they get a lot of goodness into it. Our room was a standard king but it included a large closet and dressing room to the right as you’d walk in and large bathroom with individual his and hers vanities, a soaker tub and a shower opposite that. The room is big enough to have a sitting area in addition to the bed. And – as a personal first – the room included a combo printer, scanner, fax machine which we did actually use.
The hotel has a spa and indoor salt-water infinity pool. The pool is configured for doing laps and has a beautiful view of Hibiya Park and the Imperial Gardens. Like everywhere else is the hotel, the service is extremely attentive. And, similarly, the standards of upkeep are extremely high.
The Peninsula has afternoon tea in the lobby. It may not have the line of people waiting for a seat that you’d see in Hong Kong but it is still a nice selection of savoury and sweet. The only complaint is that it took about 45 from ordering to receiving our food.
The basement has one of the two restaurants that serves breakfast.
What’s really interesting downstairs is that you get to watch the bakers and the chocolatiers. The baked goods are very good and the chocolates – made from Valrhona and Callebaut chocolate – are exceptionally good.
Combine all of the above with Japanese hospitality and an unbeatable location, there is little to negative say about The Peninsula Tokyo.
How much does a room costs at Hotel The Peninsula Tokyo?
Prices start 642$/night for Deluxe King Room. The Suite is 1591$/room per night with breakfast included – if coming on a honeymoon this is the perfect choice for couples.
This corner deluxe suite room overlooks views of Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace with its large windows in the living room. Guests will also find a bedroom, a spacious dressing room, a marble bathroom and a powder room.
