The Peninsula Tokyo, 10 Years Later

Most hotels require necessary renovations after a decade. Today, The Peninsula Tokyo celebrates 10 years since its opening in September 2007, and the rooms are practically brand new.

The Peninsula Tokyo stands above the rest as a luxury hotel destination in Tokyo for its spaciously comfortable rooms, attention-to-detail service, and its impressive maintenance to uphold the cleanest rooms in the city.

Review of the Deluxe Room

Bedroom & Sitting Area

The Peninsula Tokyo boasts of having one of the more spacious rooms in the city. Their base rooms start at 54 square meters, more than comfortable for 2 or 3 guests in the room. Plus, the layout of the sitting area allows guests to fully enjoy the room during the day and night with the sofa and dining table.

The best part of staying at The Peninsula is the five-star attention to detail, including new freshly ironed bed sheets each day

The sitting area can be converted to a sofa bed for an extra guest in the room. During the day, the bed is kept away to enjoy the sofa in the room. The sitting area comes with a small dining table for 2, a small desk area, and coffee and tea station with hotel-branded teas and a Lavazza coffee machine
