First opened to the public on 1 April 2017, the design-centric hotel ONE@Tokyo has recently celebrated its official grand opening on 28 July 2017.
The hotel’s facade and interior design are the work of world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma. Fusing industrial materials with natural wood, this new hotel exemplifies the contrast found in Oshiage, which retains the feeling of a bygone Edo era, while being set in modern metropolis Tokyo.
This 142-guestroom hotel soars up to ten storeys, putting the landmark Tokyo Skytree™ right outside the guests’ window. It also has one restaurant and one rooftop bar.
ONE@Tokyo includes a variety of guest rooms, including an Atelier Suite (56 square metres) created to resemble an artiste’s atelier; and a Library Suite (56 square metres), a private haven for book lovers. There are also spacious Lofts (28 square metres) with the view of Tokyo Skytree™; minimalist yet functional Studios (14 square metres) and fully wheelchair-accessible Universal room (28 square metres).
ONE@Tokyo’s service concept is ‘Installation for Time Travel towards Historic Tokyo’, the hotel conscientiously pays homage to the enduring qualities that make Tokyo great, besides turning the hotel into a unique art exhibit. Being only three minutes’ walk to the Oshiage Station and only 30 minutes from Tokyo Station using the efficient Tokyo Metro, ONE@Tokyo aspires to become the information centre and central base for discerning travellers. Its location, Oshiage, is in itself unique and offer one-of-a-kind discoveries and encounters.
Other than free Wi-Fi, ONE@Tokyo has cutting-edge digital offerings that are sure to impress. All guestrooms are equipped with a handy smartphone that can be carried around during guests’ stay. Chromecast (a streaming media adapter that allows guests to play online mobile device contents on television) is available in every guestroom as well.
