Peninsula Tokyo

| August 15, 2013

I’m a big fan of the Peninsula; been to the one in Bangkok, Hong Kong and recently Tokyo. Each one has a certain resemblance; I couldn’t tell what exactly it is. It’s either the; lighting, staffs, high ceiling, overall ambiance, or all of them.

At the entrance I was welcomed by the bellboys and the door girls. It must be hard work for the cute petit door girls to spin the heavy rotating door for all the guest but it didn’t show in their generous smiles. The Lobby, a hundreds of lights hanging from the high ceiling forming a huge half sphere light fixture was impressive. Beyond that a weird and scary looking sculpture that is also appealing; this might be something to get the kids to behave.

The Deluxe Park View is very spacious for a city hotel in Tokyo. For a deluxe category it is more like a studio suite. Large walk in closet, the space can be enough for another bed room. Entering the bath room the bathtub looks very inviting. There is a TV with controls mounted to the wall. One character of the Japanese toilet is the auto wash seats. The one here is taken to another level; the seats are heated and open automatically when approaching, additional functions are oscillating and massage. There is a separated living and sleeping area in the same space. Buttons are everywhere, to control the curtains, the lighting, TV, radio, etc.
