Lotte City Hotel is the first hotel in Japan to be owned and operated by food and shopping conglomerate Lotte. The hotel opened in April 2010, offering something a bit beyond the run-of-the-mill room. In addition to offering guest rooms that feature Koala’s March (the character from Lotte’s perennially popular chocolate-filled biscuits) themed cushions, they also offer a special ‘Koala’s March Room’ that makes use of Koala’s March designs throughout its décor, right down to its curtains and bed covers. Conveniently located close by to Kinshicho Station, which provides easy access to popular areas such as Akihabara and Shitamachi, the hotel is also only a short walk away from the Tokyo Sky Tree, making their rooms which overlook the giant structure particularly popular. Single rooms here are relatively small, however rooms such as the hotel’s ‘Elite Single’ rooms feature items such as a trouser press and a relatively large desk that business travellers may find especially useful. Additionally, the hotel also offers an entire floor reserved especially for female guests – a measure of comfort for those with trepidations about staying in a hotel alone. Reservations made via a special campaign currently taking place, entitled ‘Shucho Oen Single 7500’, which start at ¥7,500 per night.
