Whilst the hotel prides itself on its superb location with direct access from the Kokkai Gijido-mae and Tameike-Sanno subway stations, its calm ambience lets one forget the hustle and bustle of the city as it is surrounded by the lush greenery of Hie Shrine. The hotel contains 13 guest suites, 251 guest rooms, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a pastry boutique. It is the only hotel in the world which delivers "ease" from daily life to guests from across the globe, with a refined Japanese-style discipline.
