The Celestine Shiba Tokyo Hotel is an elegant oasis, perfect for a stylish break in the city. The Celestine’s concept revolves around creating a tranquil environment based on the warrior history of the Satsuma Clan. The hotel, built where the Satsuma feudal lord’s mansion once stood, reflects this prestigious history.
The Celestine uses the geometric emblem of the esteemed clan to etch refined details into every corner of the hotel. The spacious lobby is grand, with floor to ceiling windows that allow the hotel to change with the seasons and highlight the origami-influenced wall installation made from traditional products of the Satsuma Clan’s hometown of Kagoshima.
The hotel is ideal for a taste of elegant Japan as it boasts spacious airy rooms decorated with subtle Satsuma features that feel a world away from the busy Tokyo streets. The hotel's most exceptional room is decorated with Oshima Tsumugi fabric, a traditional Kagoshima craft considered to be one of the three greatest textiles in the world.
The fourteenth floor is home to the guest lounge, a unique space modelled on the living room of a mansion. The lounge with its rich woods combines an air of western luxury with refined Japanese minimalist design to create a sophisticated ambience; a contemporary take on the feudal residence. The guest lounge is open round the clock and has a free soft drinks bar making it the perfect spot to sip a coffee and explore their collection of Japanese art books or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Wide wooden decks bordering the lounge are ideal for relaxing in the sunshine away from the bustling city parks. The hotel features a gym which looks out onto the verdant patio, and a stylish spa to pamper yourself or enjoy a treatment with a partner.
The hotel’s restaurant 'Celestine Dining La Pelouse Tokyo' features a unique menu crafted from Kagoshima ingredients. The chefs prepare dishes as you watch, with the Shiba burger, speciality curry and Kagoshima chazuke being show-stoppers. If you wish to explore more history and culture, why not walk through the hotel grounds passing the remains of the Satsuma residence and head for the down-to-earth Shiba yokocho alleyways bursting with unique eateries and intimate izakayas.
If you are looking for a contemporary take on Japanese traditions combining world-renowned hospitality, feudal history and modern aesthetics, the sophisticated Celestine Shiba Tokyo is for you.
