Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi is a hotel located, as you might have guessed it, in the heart of Roppongi, Tokyo’s famous nightlife district. I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for several days during my trip across Japan and I was quite satisfied with it. By the time I reached Roppongi, I had already spent more than 2 weeks exploring Tokyo and the nearby areas such as Yokohama and the Nagano prefecture. I had seen a lot of amazing places and had many unique experiences. However, one thing that I had not done up until that point, what’s to experience the famous Japanese nightlife. That is why I was extremely happy to stay at a hotel that is located in the center of Tokyo’s most famous entertainment district. Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi’s location is so convenient, that I never had to walk more than 10 minutes to reach a bar or nightclub which I wanted to visit. Someone who has not visited Tokyo and has not experienced its crazy nightlife might be surprised at the level of importance I place to the location of my accommodation in Tokyo.
You see, the problem with the nightlife in Tokyo has to do with transportation. Public transport does not operate after midnight, so your only option of coming back to the hotel is either on foot or by a taxi. Both of these are not good options since Tokyo is a really big city and your accommodation can be far away from the nightclub your visiting, while taxi is really expensive there. I’m sure that most of you do not prefer to work for several kilometers, our pay Tokyo’s extraordinary high taxi fees. That is why the location of the Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi is one of its prime features in my opinion. And even though it is located so close to all these popular nightlife areas, the immediate area around the hotel itself is quiet and peaceful. It is also located close to the Roppongi metro station and easily recognizable thanks to the fact that it is a tall and modern looking building with the hotels’ name inscribed on the side with large shiny letters. I arrived a bit earlier to the hotel then the check-in time, but the kind of stuff there offered me the option of checking in earlier since my room was already prepared. They explained to me everything that I needed to know about the hotel and it’s facilities and gave me directions to my room.
The room in which I stayed was an Executive Twin Room room located near the top of the hotel. It included all of the things that I would expect from a room in a hotel such as this one. The quality of the bed and furniture was at a satisfactory level and I have to say I had had no complaints about any other rooms’ features. The amenities that are included in the room where a hairdryer, many toiletries, slippers, a refrigerator, a flat-screen TV, an alarm clock and an electric kettle. The bathroom featured a nice bathtub and a Japanese smart bidet toilet. The thing about this room that I like the most was its beautiful view of Roppongi and the surrounding area, especially since I could see the amazing Tokyo Tower. I just loved chilling on the sofa and observing the city as it transitions from day to night and the lights start appearing one by one all around me. In the end, I can say that I was really satisfied with the room and that my stay was a comfortable one.
One of the main features of this hotel is its incredible Skyspa located at the very top of the hotel. It is made up of two separate bath areas, one for men and one for women. The Skyspa is open during the majority of the day except between 11 and 15 o’clock when it is been cleaned. I found it quite convenience since I could go there after a whole day of sightseeing or after a night out, to refresh and relax from all that. The Skyspa consists of a locker room, a cleaning area with showers, sauna (dry sauna for men and mist sauna for women), an indoor and an outdoor bath, and a cold bath (Male spa only). Keep in mind that, like in most of Japan, guests with tattoos are not allowed to enter the Skyspa. I really loved the Skyspa and I found myself going there as much as possible. It felt so amazing to be on the top of this large building and relaxing in a hot bath with the city all around you.
One more thing that I really enjoyed in the Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi was the breakfast they serve here. As a guest of the hotel I had coupons for a complimentary breakfast. The breakfast is served on the lobby floor every morning from 7 to 10 a.m. It is a buffet-style breakfast with an absolutely huge variety of different dishes. There’s everything there from cereals, several types of cheese and ham, croissants, eggs, different kinds of salads and meat, soups, desserts, and many beverages as well. My favorite meals there were cereals with honey, scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, salmon salad, and of course croissants with Nutella.
All in all, my stay at Candeo Hotels Tokyo Roppongi was a pleasurable experience, and I will definitely keep an eye out for other Candeo Hotels when I go on a trip across Japan again. I wholeheartedly recommend that you visit their website and see everything they have to offer, and if you plan on visiting Roppongi and the surrounding area, book this hotel.
