Bébé's Top Tokyo Hotels For Traveling Families
Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi
Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi manages to be central yet still serene. The hotel is just steps away from Ginza; Tokyo Station is very near and there are many entrances that reach the station. The Four Seasons delivers both luxury and intimacy, with its friendly staff and sleek Asian decor. Provide them with the names and ages of your children after you book your stay and they will greet you with welcome amenities, child-size bathrobes, baby and children’s toiletries, bedtime snacks with milk, and in-room children’s dining menus. You may also request they babyproof the room, bring a crib, offer storybooks and coloring books, and maybe even borrow a stroller. Rooms are heavenly, the breakfast buffet is delicious, they offer babysitting services and you can’t ask for more helpful staff that will offer family-friendly activity suggestions.
Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel
Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel is centrally located right by Shibuya station and has amazing views of Tokyo from the top. The “busiest intersection in the world” is close by too.

Why Bébé Voyage Loves Tokyo
Tokyo is populated by old people – a quarter of the population is over 75. But at the same time, Tokyo is built to be extremely child-friendly. There are children’s toilets in most shopping centers, changing rooms in department stores, playgrounds in pocket-sized parks spread all over residential areas.
When you visit Tokyo, explore everything from tourist traps like robot restaurants and samurai museums to historic monuments like the ruins of Edo Castle, and stores that have been open since the city was founded 500 years ago. It has parks and gardens that are reconstructions of the samurai gardens, and museums for the whole family. It has high-tech buildings and traditional houses which have not been renovated since the 19th century. For anyone bent on discovery, a Tokyo trip is a treasure-trove with hundreds of things to see off the beaten path.
Japan also has a well-deserved reputation as a foodie heaven, and it is the local restaurants, run by a chef-entrepreneur, who are the cornerstone of that reputation. Interestingly, it has more Michelin-starred restaurants that Paris!
okyo is not an easy city to love right away. It can feel chaotic, overwhelming, and confusing, but give it a few days. When you have settled in a little, when your children have discovered their favorite neighborhood playground, when Hello Kitty and the other ubiquitous anime characters have crept under your skin, then suddenly you look out through the window and can’t wait to see yet another new thing in this amazing city.
The biggest Tokyo hotels are clustered in the Shinjuku area and in the Nihonbashi neighborhood northwest of Ginza. There are hotels everywhere in the city, although many of them are business hotels. Business hotels in Japan have very small rooms, intended for a single person visiting for work. You may be able to squeeze in your family, but you will not be able to fit the luggage, so make sure you are looking at Tokyo family hotels.
Every neighborhood in Tokyo has a park, usually several. This means there are plenty of small playgrounds scattered across the Tokyo living areas. Often the equipment is fairly basic with a couple of rocking horses, a slide, a pair of swings, and a sandbox.
