[Hotel Review] Remm Roppongi - A night in the Town that never sleeps

Tokyo is a gigantic city and when you visit for the first time it can be hard to decide which area of the metropolis you want to use as your base for exploration. One of the areas often preferred by tourists is Roppongi, highly renowned for its bustling nightlife and fancy nightspots. Last week I had the chance to stay a night at Remm Roppongi, a brand new hotel centrally located in Roppongi scheduled to open March 30th 2017.

Remm Roppongi is located only one minute away from Exit 4a and Exit 7 of Roppongi station. It can be reached by metro (Hibiya Line), and is within 12 minutes reach from Tokyo Station, 10 minutes from Shibuya and 26 minutes from Asakusa. It was very easy to locate the hotel, as the building was visible from the exit of the metro station.

Arriving at the hotel we took the elevator to the fourth floor where we got a quick briefing at the counter before we could head up to our room. The hotel also had self-checkin machines by the counter to speed up the process, all provided in English.

The receptionist told us that there was no tea provided in the rooms; instead we could pick our preferred type of tea by the counter.
Our room was situated on the 19th floor, which also happened to be the uppermost floor.


Guest room

We stayed at one of their Twin Rooms, and as soon as we stepped into the room we were surprised by the bathroom right in front of us that >offers a fabulous view of Tokyo Tower. What a great first impression! I have added photos of the bathroom too below, but first some photos of the bedroom.


Room Amenities

The room came fully equipped with all the regular amenities one can expect such as a flat-screen TV, an alarm clock and a refrigerator, but there was also a couple of pleasant surprises such as (my personal favorite) a massage chair. This was especially welcoming since both of us came right from work. I did notice that the chair was slightly low though; the part that massages your leg might be too short especially for tall guys.

The room was even equipped with a tablet that guests were free to use during the stay..!

By the side of the bed there was a control panel covering all the rooms in the guest room. It was nice to be able to control all the light settings without having to get out of bed!



View

The view from the room on the 19th floor was fabulous. With few taller buildings in sight we could see far away in all directions, and we also had a great view of Tokyo Tower which is a very distinct landmark in Tokyo.

Bathroom

The bathroom came with separate rooms for the toilet and shower, something that is rather unusual in Japan due to lack of space. Not bad at all!

The bathroom was equipped with both a shower and a bathtub, and with a window facing outward towards the street so that Tokyo Tower was visible from the bathroomFor those who might be uncomfortable with showering in front of an open window the shower room comes equipped with a curtain one could choose to close.
It's not that easy to tell from the picture but you have a beautiful view of Tokyo Tower from the bathtub (at the time of the photo the Tokyo Tower was lit up with purple light).
There was also a window facing the bed room which one also could choose to cover with a pull-down curtain.
The toilet was equipped with the latest of the latest of fancy Japanese toilet technology. For those who haven't tried out this before it is simply a must to have your tooshe washed clean by a Japanese toilet when visiting Japan..

Breakfast

The stay at Remm Roppongi included a buffet style breakfast at Cedar the Chop House & Bar, a restaurant situated on the 2nd floor of the hotel. The buffet had a rich selection of food ranging from Western to Japanese and Chinese dishes. In Japan fruit is quite expensive, so I was personally particularly happy for their nice selection of fruit and vegetables, not to mention their delicious fruit smoothie. 
If you get tired of breakfast you can always jump right to the dessert..
