Japan: Hotel & Residence Roppongi, a serviced apartment development in Tokyo, has added a 75 square metre one-bedroom unit to its range of rooms and studios.
Hotel & Residence Roppongi operates some 30-plus serviced
apartments inside its hotel and serviced office building, seven
minutes walk from Roppongi station on Tokyo's Hibiya and Oedo
Adding to its studio-type offerings, H&R Roppongi opened a 75 square metre one-bedroom furnished suite on its penthouse floor. The company says: "Beautifully boutique and seeped in history, this 35 year old designer condominium was intricately revamped in traditional Japanese design and re-opened by Shimada House in 2012. Combining natural building materials, lovely art and design with work-friendly "Library" office space and a casual café/restaurant, H&R Roppongi is the epitomy of boutique residential hotel in Roppongi. With the 47 individually designed hotel rooms at full occupancy most of the year, general manager Kaoru Kikuchi wanted to provide an option for long-term guests."
Kikuchi said: "The building was originally a multi-purpose facility with hotel, residential apartments, shops and restaurants, so we preserved the multi-side of the building to provide a furnished, serviced apartment option along with office space, hotel space, restaurant, café and lounge space. Our serviced apartments are for guests here for one month or longer. Adding washer/dryer, refrigerators, cutlery, tableware and appliances, our serviced apartment guests can also avail themselves of 24-hour hotel guest services, free work and meeting space in our library, access to private "Salon" meeting space and excellent cuisine from our master Chef. In our newest Serviced Apartment suite, we kept the design in a darker hue and made the bedroom area perfect for a good night's rest. We know our guests are here to accomplish their goals and we hope the peaceful, modern and relaxing space we provide will support their success in Japan."
