About Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel
The Cerulean Tower offers top-end repose among the bustling Shibuya district. From its towering heights (40 floors), you can look down at ant-sized pedestrians scuttling across the largest zebra crossing in the world.
The lobby sets the tone of grandiose modernity with lofty ceilings and giant polished pillars. Like a city within a city, you will find beauty salons, a spa, an art gallery and the hotel’s very own church. Rooms enjoy undisputed city views. Expect sophisticated minimalism with a neutral colour palette and occasional splashes of deep purple furnishings.
After exploring the city, you can swim laps in the 20-metre indoor pool and blast out any muscle ache in the adjacent jet bath. The glass-walled gym presents top-notch equipment for the energetically inclined.
Head to the sky-high bar to admire the city’s twinkling lights. The fine dining restaurant, also on the 40th floor, offers seasonal Provencal cuisine with the obligatory white tablecloths and candlelight. There’s also a bevy of other restaurants ranging from Italian to Japanese and Szechwan.
