[Hotel concept is “Urban Lohas”]
In Akihabara's electric town, there are many domestic and foreign tourists selling home appliance mass retailers, maid cafes, anime and figures, and other stores that handle Japanese subcultures. We thought that the hotel that people who visit this city with a wide variety of stores and contents demands is a relaxing hotel where you can take a rest, and we have planned the concept of the hotel as “Urban (urban) Lohas” . In order to reset the fatigue accumulated from sightseeing and work, the guest rooms are based on earth colors while incorporating elements of nature, and finished in a room that incorporates an urban and cool essence.
In addition to the normal double type, a large number of large rooms are available to accommodate families. It features an interior design that makes effective use of the limited space under the overpass. There is also a casual and reasonable cafe and bar. We offer the perfect snacks to satisfy the hungry businessmen and tourists. General guests as well as hotel guests are available.
