Summary

I had a very satisfying stay at this hotel. As a concept, traditional Japanese objects were arranged in a new and modern way and it is an urban resort hotel. My original room was upgraded into a suite room. It was a big and beautiful room with modern art decorated here and there. Also, BE@RBRICK was displayed in the corner of the room which created a playful atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the view of the skyscrapers, Sky Tree, Hama Rikyu, the former site of Tsukiji, Hamamatsu Town from the room. The night view was exceptionally gorgeous! There is a tablet in the room where you can order your meal. The only issue was that service is until 10:00, so after that you can only order water. However, overall I had a wonderful stay and I would love to stay here once more.
