With good location and the nearby metro, the Centurion Classic Akasaka is ideal to explore Tokyo, writes Hanna Hussein
COMFORT and convenience - two things I have to consider when planning a family holiday. I have to make sure that my parents truly enjoy the stay.
I go for a fuss-free hotel booking options, no other than Hotels.com. All I have to do is log on to my Hotels.com app on my iPhone, search for the best pick and immediately make my bookings! With the mobile app, I can get even more savings with the app discount code.
Hotels.com also offers more rewards. Collect 10 nights of stay, and you’ll get one night’s stay for free with the value of the average price of the 10 nights you have collected.
So, since I am planning a Tokyo trip with my family, I may as well start collecting my rewards point at Hotels.com. After browsing the mobile app, I finally make my pick – Centurion Hotel Classic Akasaka.
It’s a pretty boutique hotel, with a good location in Akasaka.
Since my family and I are travelling on public transport in Tokyo, it’s really helpful that the hotel is located five minutes away from Akasaka-Mitsuke metro Station.
With the help of Google Maps, the hotel is quite easy to find. It is in bustling Akasaka, famous as an entertainment hub. The streets along the hotel are vibrant with Pachinko and Slot Machines outlets, restaurants and small boutiques.
But, most importantly, there are a few halal restaurants near the hotel.
Akasaka is also not too far from many popular attractions in Tokyo. Shibuya, Harajuku and the Tsukiji fish market are all within half anhour’s reach by metro. Really a convenient location.
For as low as RM1, 292 for two nights, we get a spacious Superior Room. It has a king bed and a nicely set up extra bed for myself at the corner.
The room is nicely decorated with cream, silver and gold walls and furniture — modern but with a classic touch.
It is complete with a refrigerator, microwave andanelectric kettle for light meals. There are also a washing machine and dryer. Very homely, especially if you decide to stay longer. An iron and ironing board are available upon request.
The room has air-conditioning, heater and comes with daily housekeeping.
The bathroom has an ample space too. The toilet is complete with high tech Japanese bidet, while the bathroom has a shower and small Japanese tub. Don’t worry if you forget to bring toiletries because the hotel provides all the necessary toiletries and make-up remover and facial cleanser!
The products are all made of organic ingredients.
