Italian jeweler and luxury brand Bulgari will open a Bulgari-branded hotel in front of Tokyo Station in 2022. The hotel will feature interiors designed by Antonio Citterio, 98 spaciously sized guest rooms, a bar, restaurant, spa, pool, ballroom, chapel and Bulgari’s signature chocolate shop. Bulgari Hotels & Resorts will manage the hotel, with nightly room rates expected to exceed 80,000 ~ 90,000 Yen (approx. 740 ~ 835 USD).
The hotel will be located in the Yaesu 2 Chome North District Redevelopment on the eastern side of Tokyo Station. In contrast to the large city blocks and wide avenues of Marunouchi and Otemachi on the opposite side of the station, the Yaesu side is a densely packed district of narrow, older buildings and small streets, and is a prime target for large-scale redevelopment.
Construction of the project is scheduled to start in November 2018 with completion by August 2022. The 45-storey building will be approximately 240 meters tall, with the Bulgari Hotel to be located on floors 39 ~ 45.
