[Hotel Review] Tokyo: A night at the upscale Centurion Classic Akasaka - Premier Family Suite

More and more of the hotels opening up in the Japanese capital Tokyo are catering towards foreign guests. With an increasing number of visitors preferring apartment-style accommodation that can accommodate larger family groups as well there are also hotels that try to adapt to this trend by offering wider rooms and the sort of equipment you'd regularly find in an apartment. This is also the case for The Centurion Classic Akasaka, a newly opened hotel situated in Akasaka, an upscale area north of Roppongi popular among wealthy foreigners.

The Centurion Classic Akasaka is a designer hotel where all of the rooms feature unique design. The goal of the hotel is to ensure that guests can enjoy the time spent in their hotel room, making sure the stay in itself can become a memorable part of the time spent in Tokyo.

The Guest Room

We spent a night at their Premier Family Suite with Tatami Area, which as you might have guessed was a Japanese style suite room. This 60 sq.m. room comes with 2 King Beds and 4 bunk beds and sleeps up to 8 people. The quality of your sleep is also taken into consideration, with mattresses from the popular brand Slumberland.
The 4 single beds in bunk bed style are hidden behind stylish Japanese shōji (障子) walls that can be partly opened and closed depending on your preferences. This ensures that a group of friends or a family can use the room and still have some private space.

The room also comes equipped with various amenities to help create the perfect stay. Here's the list of room amenities:

Bathroom and toiletries
Hair dryer ・Towels

DVD/CD player ・Free Wi-Fi in all rooms ・Telephone ・TV [flat screen]

We spent a comfortable night at the hotel, and woke up completely refreshed the next morning. The hotel room was more than we could ask for as a couple. For families with kids, children under 5 can stay for free on existing bedding, and with the wide space and many beds I'm sure it would be a good fit for families looking for a comfortable place to stay too.
