The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo
Posted on

The Peninsula Tokyo may be heaven on earth, but for this trip with the kids I decided to book at the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo as recommended by my brother Dennis.
We had also considered the Grand Hyatt Tokyo due to its proximity to Roppongi Hills, but upon inspecting the rooms personally, I backed out due to the open bathrooms, even with the sliding doors. I don’t like sleeping near the sink or bathroom odours. 🙁

The Ritz-Carlton is also connected to the beautiful Tokyo Midtown mall, which I had visited previously many years ago.
I had lunch there once with my family at an expensive tempura restaurant. But being with parents, I wasn’t able to see the entire mall at that time. I did have a impressive memory of its interior and an extra large Muji store on the ground level.
Staying next to the mall means we have access to all kinds of food—rain or shine, summer or winter.
Another big plus is the 24-hour supermarket called Precce Premium, apart from the 7-11 at the basement.

Apart from the fluctuating aircon temperature, I have no complaints about this room


Plus the boys really loved the wifi
