It will be part of an integrated development that also comprises offices, restaurants, cafés and bars with both indoor and alfresco dining options. ­

It is also close to popular leisure spots such as the Imperial Palace East Gardens and the famous Ginza district. The property can be reached by foot from the Tokyo train station in ten minutes.

“With Japan’s growing economy, Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo’s strategic location, and its timely opening ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we are confident that the serviced residence will be a draw for discerning business and leisure travellers seeking a world-class experience and the comforts of home.”
