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.
