Hotel Gajoen Tokyo

A fairy tale retreat that mixes 1930s glamour with contemporary cool in Meguro, Tokyo

In 1928, a new Tokyo treasure opened its gates. Hotel Gajoen Tokyo promised cuisine, hospitality and surroundings so otherworldly that it became known as the ‘Palace of the Dragon God’. It fast became a hotspot for luxury society weddings and social events. Today, the original retreat has been carefully transformed. A boutique hotel immersed in omotenashi hospitality that continues to welcome wedding parties and global travellers to Tokyo.

Inside, past and present, classic and contemporary meet in perfect balance. The polished entrance hall contains the original Invitation Gate of Meguro Gajoen, enticing you in to explore. Look out for antique features such as ornately carved wooden panels and Japanese lacquerwork. Or settle into your suite, pour yourself a drink and take in views across the city. Wherever you go in Hotel Gajoen, a sense of calm wraps around you and helps you to unwind.

By day, explore Meguro. This hip neighbourhood is filled with local shops and cafes, with a canal lined with cherry trees. Or stay close to Hotel Gajoen – follow the pathways in the water garden, or view the artwork in the Hyakudan Kaidan galleries. As evening falls, take your pick from Japanese, Chinese and Italian restaurants, or enjoy a relaxed meal in the lounge.


Enjoy your stay!

A calm home away from home.

staying there is like staying in your own, little Japanese house. At least it feels like, secluded from the always busy Tokyo.

Perfection

We had high expectations for this property which were far exceeded. From the moment we arrived we were so warmly welcomed and settled in by Wataru, who also kindly assisted us throughout our stay. The check-in process was calm, attentive & caring. Our room was stunning with Meguro River & Mt Fuji view. Read more[SPLIT]Read lessWell appointed, immaculately clean, carefully planned with every amenity we could have wished for. Ample space for our family of three. The hotel is breathtaking. A true destination in its own right. The Kanade American Grill produces wonderful food, both for extensive breakfast & also in room dining which we had fully set up in our room, it was a fine dining experience in the privacy of our own space. Having said how incredible the property is, the staff here really elevate it to the next level. They are all incredible, this level of genuine service, care & attention is very hard to find. We simply cannot fault a thing & eagerly await our return. With heartfelt thanks to all.

This luxurious hotel has large bedrooms, beautiful and large bathrooms will all facilities expected However what makes it stand out is its associated history.

Exclusive service and superb amenities

The building itself feels colossal, but the hotel is small and personable, and the service is extremely courteous even on Japanese standards. Daily tea ceremony, spacious suite with a cypress jacuzzi and steam sauna, and the attentive staff make this hotel an absolute must-stay.

Taste of Japanese Luxury

We requested the "Art Tour" which also includes the Hyakudan Stairs (100). Knowing the history and meaning behind the artwork, the craftsmanship, was really interesting. Not the oldest place (1928) or even a samurai house, Gojoen contains stunning treasures and wonderful discoveries revealing the Japanese Read more[SPLIT]Read lessability to recover after a tragedy.

Great hotel with perfect hospitality

Using SLH free voucher to stay 3 nights in the executive suite of Hotel Gajoen Tokyo. The hotel locates at Meguro where is not a super attractive location to foreign tourists, but the room with massive space and perfect view to the nearby city makes it so special. Will definitely come back again next Read more[SPLIT]Read lesstime visiting Tokyo.
