A discreet hotel in the city of excess, difficult to imagine but not something to scoff at. Here, at the heart of the local bedlam, reigns an oasis of calm and Zen. Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert de Niro, his perpetual accomplice, have joined forces for an attempt at their very first hotel. A master stroke? Not far off.
You just need to follow the beautiful backlit onyx sign at Caesars Palace to leave the clicking of its slot machines and the shouts of the craps players behind and enter into the peaceful world of the Nobu. At a small reception, a personable young man or a woman will greet you, check you in on his or her iPad and then off you go to the upper floors in an upholstered lift, with Japanese fabrics of course. A quick history lesson for those that haven't heard of Nobu. He is one of the most famous restaurant owners in the world. Curiously not in France though, where the cash flow for the Nobu restaurant in Paris was exhausted by its partners, including a famous television presenter, forcing it to close very quickly. Elsewhere (London, Dubai, Hong Kong, New York etc.), Nobu has been a roaring success with his recipes inspired from a blend of Japanese cuisine and American fusion food. Delicious, healthy and original. Nobu's partner is Robert de Niro himself. He is also the co-founder of their first hotel, which is designed to offer all the refinement and originality of Nobu's lifestyle. To do so, they have 'Japanified' one of the towers of Caesars Palace.

    Location 9.69 /10

    Does it get any better than this? The Nobu Hotel is at the heart of Caesars Palace, itself at the heart of the Strip. Caesars Palace, with its forum, trendy shops, and multiple restaurants, is the perfect location. Better than that in fact, it is exceptional.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The spacious guests rooms, spread over 6 floors, boast light wood furniture, stylised calligraphy on the walls, embossed carpeted floors, and a woven bulrush bed head. The floor lamp is reminiscent of a Chinese lantern from Ginza, as are the bedside lamps, and the various prints on the walls add to the Japanese ambiance. Other furnishings include a large leather sofa and a wooden coffee table that also serves as a desk. The equally large bathrooms are equipped with a shower with a wooden stool, like in Japan, a large and deep wash basin, and a wooden ladder to hang towels on. The toilet is Japanese, from the Toto brand, but the water jet system hasn't been added. Apparently, it scares Americans. A pity also that it isn't separate, which is another flaw. The dressing table and large mirror are not very useful seeing as the hair-dryer socket is 5 metres away. The Internet connection is quick but must be paid for ($15 for 24h - abut £10), and the air-conditioning is perhaps too effective, but can at least be regulated in each room. The full length curtains, high-quality bedding and cosy sheets ensure a good night's sleep. The guest rooms are quiet and don't overlook the street. However, they afford little or no view. A bonus: international channels are available on the large-screen television. Unfortunately: they comes at an extra charge... with the adult entertainment package. Journalism takes you everywhere...

    Overview 8.20 /10

    It's difficult to rate the hotel's infrastructure as there is no lobby, no lounge, no breakfast room, not a single communal area. You've barely stepped out of the lift before you arrive in the casino. Yet, guests at the Nobu can use the nearby swimming pools at the Caesar, the gym, and the huge spa with an area reserved for 'Nobu' treatments (traditional massages with azuki, a Japanese red bean). They can also take advantage of the 18 restaurants in the Caesar and the forum. That's not including the bars, the very popular Pure night club and the Colosseum theatre, specially built back in the day for Céline Dion's show. There are countless shops of all price ranges, from Dior to the T-shirt seller. Not to mention the casinos and games room. The advantage of the Nobu is that there are 180 guest rooms, which makes it the smallest hotel on the Strip. Therefore it's more discreet. It all starts with the valet (free, although tips are appreciated). When you tell him: Nobu, you can feel the respect. This attitude continues with the hotel employees, who won't take 2 days to greet you by name. Unimaginable in Las Vegas! You won't be just Mr. Nobody here when you sign your bills, or at least you won't feel like it. That's part of the miracle that is Nobu, in this city with its anonymous and oversized crowd.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    Of course, the restaurant is where it all happens. The Nobu restaurant, next to the hotel, is open for dinner and is the best of the best when it comes to gastronomy. The sushi, made at the counter in front of your very eyes, is to die for (the generous sushi dinner costs $54/£35), the black cod miso is the house must, and the desserts are exceptional, and for once in America, not too sweet. Everything is remarkable and magnificently presented. It's expensive, but you won't regret it. As for breakfast, served in the guest rooms, it is excellent and sophisticated, and served in 20 minutes which is a record for Vegas. Fans of the full-board formula should try the bento box for breakfast.

      Who hasn't heard of the Bellagio, the hotel made famous worldwide thanks to the film Ocean's Eleven? This imposing building is really something special and is even more impressive by night, when it is illuminated by its dancing fountains. Decorated in a typical Italian Renaissance style, taste and class are what this hotel-casino is all about, and, come nightfall, the dancing fountains are not to be missed!

      As one of the very first casino-hotels of the avenue, the Flamingo hotel is a true institution on the Strip. Its crowning glory is its cool and tranquil tropical gardens, where pink flamingos nonchalantly strut about and the new 'sexy' Flamingo Go guest rooms are also well worth a mention as they are amazing and ideal for a stay in Vegas.

      A mirage at the heart of the Nevada dessert??? Don't worry, your eyes are not playing tricks on you - the huge glass building standing proudly against the backdrop of the Nevada mountains is just The Mirage hotel, with its imposing architecture and erupting volcano that attracts many a curious eye. Once inside, the hotel provides an oasis of freshness, complete with palm trees, fish, waterfalls, and animals. You'll soon notice the theme of the hotel is Hawaii; all that's missing are the waves, the surfers, and the leis.

      The New York New York hotel is considered to be a 'little' hotel. Of course, in Vegas, everything is relative, but compared to the colossal masses on the Strip, the New York New York is of a moderate size. Once you come face to face with it, you will feel as if you're in Brooklyn or Manhattan. The atmosphere of 'New York' will make you forget for a moment that you are in Vegas, in the middle of the desert.

      This is probably not the castle of your dreams, but your children will love the place. The first word that comes to mind is 'kitsch'. So if ' kitsch' is your thing, when you step inside you won't be disappointed. At night time, when it is all lit up though, the castle does seem a little less kitsch and really looks quite nice. Hey, you're in Vegas after all!

      There's no need to get out your Indiana Jones costume at the Luxor: the treasure was discovered long ago! On arrival, you will be transported into the mythical world of Cleopatra and the pharaohs. Fans of this period of history (young and old alike) are sure to be swept away by the Luxor's decor, although some might find the kitsch aspect of it a bit too much.

      With a touch of nostalgia for days gone by, when Indochina and hedonism ruled, this is the ideal place for a few days away in the city of excess (and sin!). The chic, classy Mandalay Bay hotel embodies the charm of southern Asia, its imposing frame home to a shark reef and various aquariums, among other things. When it comes to relaxation, you'll find the pool here claims to be the most beautiful in all of Vegas, and the hotel even has its very own artificial beach.

      Elegance and design come together in the same place at The Hotel. This boutique hotel is an attractive option for those looking for some peace and quiet in this swarming city (and yes, Las Vegas can seem a real jungle for some visitors!). Luxury in its purest form is basically what you'll find here. The bonus will definitely be the breathtaking view from the 64th floor, where Vegas will be at your feet, making it easy to master the city.
