You Only Live Twice
The New Otani hotel is the headquarters of Osato Chemicals, the Japanese front for Ernst Stavro Blofeld’s SPECTRE operation. The hotel was built in 1964 by former sumo wrestler Yonetaro Otani, and is famous for its revolving restaurant and enormous Japanese gardens.

In “Casino Royale,” Bond girl Solange is seen arriving at the resort before checking into Villa 1085. The property appears throughout the film: Bond is seen walking through the reception area, playing poker in the library and exploring the Versailles-themed gardens.
Hotel Cipriani – Venice -Italy
Daniel Craig’s James Bond moors his yacht at this hotel’s private marina in “Casino Royale.” The crew took over the Cipriani’s restaurant to film this scene, and parts of the terrace appear throughout. Cast and crew stayed at the hotel during filming and the hotel’s head barman recalls Craig enjoying a nightcap or two with co-star Eva Green.
The Langham – London
In “GoldenEye” — the first James Bond film not based on Ian Fleming’s novels — this London hotel doubles as St. Petersburg’s Grand Hotel Europe.
The Langham was built in 1865 and is one of London’s first purpose-built hotels. “Goldeneye” isn’t the hotel’s only starring role — it also appears in Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s film “Winning London.” No, we haven’t seen it either.
Hotel Atlantic Kempinski, Hamburg, Germany
Tomorrow Never Dies
Bond scrambles over the iconic, globe-adorned rooftop of the Atlantic Kempinski in “Tomorrow Never Dies,” and the hotel’s exterior also appears throughout the film. Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, stays in the hotel’s Atlantic Suite and several scenes were filmed there. Brosnan, the director Roger Spottiswoode and Desmond Llewelyn (who played Q) all stayed at the hotel during filming.
Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, India
This Indian hotel doubles as Octopussy’s lair in the film of the same name, with the dining room, terrace and hotel barge appearing in various scenes.

Four Seasons Hotel London at Canary Wharf, London
In the opening scene of “Skyfall,” Bond (played by Daniel Craig) takes a swim in this London hotel’s rooftop swimming pool.
The pool’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer unbeatable views over London, but because the property doubles for a hotel in Shanghai, they were blacked out prior to filming.
Skyfall’s racy shower scene was also filmed in room 712.
