Tokyo to get new Hotel Gracery in Shinjuku

By Chris Chamberlin, September 10 2014

Tokyo travellers can soon enjoy new quarters in the Japanese capital with the opening of Hotel Gracery Shinjuku in April 2015.

Located in the heart of Shinjuku, the 30-floor, 970-room property will be just a five-minute walk from the Narita Express and other train services at Shinjuku Station.

Forming part of a new building complex that's set to offer bars, restaurants and a 12-screen cinema, business travellers can relax and unwind after a long day without straying too far from their hotel, which will also open its own Italian restaurant.

Western travellers may find the rooms a little on the ‘cosy’ side, with single rooms clocking in at just 18 square metres (190 square feet)…

… but inside, you’ll find a working desk, wireless Internet connectivity and a television.

Non-Japanese speaking guests can visit a designated ‘international counter’ at the hotel, manned by multilingual staff to ease the check-in/check-out process.

The April 2015 opening of the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku will precede further openings from the chain in Okinawa in 2015 and Kyoto in 2016.
