There is nothing better than a hotel with a great view. This time we take a close look at Lotte City Hotel Kinshicho which has a great view of Tokyo Skytree. Not only is it in a great location, it is clean, beautiful, comfortable and reasonable! With a romantic view at night and being a heavy hitter when it comes to value this hotel is excellent.
There is also an adorable Koala’s March Room. It is only 3 minutes away from Tokyo Skytree, 12 minutes to Asakusa, 9 minutes to Tokyo station, and 35 minutes to Tokyo Disney Resort!
The two LUXi rooms are amazing!!
Lotte Hotel Kinshicho is the first hotel that Lotte produced in Japan. The interior chicly designed with a brown main color is very mature and cool. The building feels very clean, neat and is very comfortable. Additionally almost all rooms from single to double have a view of Tokyo Skytree!
We will look closely at the 3 rooms with the best view of Tokyo Skytree.
First off is the LUXi room, of which there are only 2 in this hotel. They are corner rooms on floors 18 and 19, with Tokyo Skytree in the northern window, and the western window showcasing Tokyo Tower, the best part is you can see both towers at the same time!
This room which you can see the 2 giant towers while you lay in the bed is the most coveted in this hotel! This room which is surrounded by windows is a spacious 51.5sqm. There is also a massage chair where you can ease those aching muscles and relax while taking in the spectacular scenery.
Although this hotel has a mature atmosphere to it inside the room there are Charlotte chocolates, Koala’s March cushions that are distinct to Lotte that create an easy going air.
With a view of Tokyo Skytree from the bathroom, how much does the LUXi room cost?
Not only can you get an up close view of Tokyo Skytree from the room but you get one from the bathroom as well! Most likely this is the only hotel in town that has a view of Skytree from the bathroom. It adds to the luxuriousness of the room.
Being spacious, and with so many luxuries you might think it will cost an arm and a leg right? But it is a reasonable 20,000~30,000 JPY per room per night. If you think it will only cost about 10,000 JPY per person it is highly cost effective. *This is the price when you book the room through the official website.
Although the LUXi Room is the only one that you get a view of Tokyo Skytree, all rooms have separate bath and toilets. This is something rare. The wash area is spacious and the bath is comfortably sized for a leisurely soak.
The luxurious rooms in the higher floors! Tower View Twin
All the rooms are fitted with Simmons beds! They are comfortingly wide. You can really stretch out and sleep like royalty. Would you like a side of scenic view with your relaxing sleep?
The next rooms up are the new opulent rooms in the higher floors, the Tower View Twin and City Double. These are rooms higher than the 14th floors and also boast a view of Skytree that you can almost touch. At night you can enjoy the view of the beautifully lit Tokyo Skytree and the twinkle of Tokyo sprawling out below.
Did you know the illumination of Tokyo Skytree changes every day? There is a calming blue, and a beautiful purple that light it up. Which color you will see is something you won’t know until you get here. The illumination also changes depending on event and is a must see as well. Christmas and Valentine’s Day seasons are truly romantic. You can also see the Sumida River Fireworks display!!
These rooms are also reasonable at 10,000~20,000 JPY per room. *This is the price when you book the room through the official website.
The Koala’s March room also has a Skytree view!
The last room on the list of awesome rooms here is the Koala’s March Room which is unique to Lotte Hotel. Of course this room comes with a spectacular view of Skytree as well!
It is an adorable room that will make any girl giggle with joy when stepping foot into it. Everything from the curtains, roll screen, duvet, pajamas, pillowcases, clock, tissue box, hangers and amenities are covered in the Koala’s March characters. Also, sitting on the sofa is a giant Koala sitting there waiting for you to hug it.
On the curtain if you look close are 365 different Koalas! You just might see the rare Eyebrow Koala, or the Appendix Koala. Definitely take a look.
The amenities and breakfast all Koala’s March
The amenities in the Koala’s March room are special. Shampoo, conditioner, body soap all come in original bottles. Also, the towels and bath mat have Koalas adorably embroidered into them.
The Koala’s March Room is popular amongst families and women. Some men surprise their significant others by booking this room making for a memorable evening.
Although we looked at the 3 types of rooms above but there is also the safe and secure Ladies Room which is recommended as well. Some of these have views of Tokyo Skytree as well, and are perfect for women travelers. It is an alluring floor which is scented all around to comfort you into relaxation mode.
Finally if you are staying here definitely check out the breakfast. The breakfast hall is on the first floor at the Charlotte Chocolate Factory. Themed as a chocolate factory befitting Lotte, there are many items on the menu that include chocolate that make for an interesting breakfast.
At any rate it is convenient here!
The last thing we want to leave you with is that this hotel is extremely convenient. It is directly connected to the trains and subway stations. In the basement floor there is a convenience store, and restaurants inside the hotel. There is even a pub that overlooks Tokyo Skytree as well.
As mentioned in the beginning it is close to Tokyo station, Disney resort, and is perfect for traveling around the city. Also the night view and rooms are perfect for a quiet date night! If you want to have a memorable day you have to make a reservation for a room with the view of the Skytree.
*Room prices may change. Also, there are different prices according to the day of the week. For more details please check the official website.
