Almost literally the gateway between the traditional heritage of the Kaminarimon ‘Thunder Gate’ and the neon fanfare of modern city life, The Gate Hotel is located in the northeastern Tokyo neighbourhood of Asakusa.
A minimalist vision by designer Shigeru Uchida, each of the 137 rooms and suites promotes comfort and style, with spacious Slumberland beds, soft furnishings by Marimekko designer Masaru Suzuki, and original works of art by the painter Katsuhiko Hibino. The luxury detailing continues into the bathroom, where you can enjoy a Hansgrohe Raindance shower.
The French bistro-style R: restaurant & bar hosts breakfast and dinner with panoramic sights through expansive windows of the Asakusa district, while the T: terrace and 14th-floor B: bar (both reserved for guests and their companions) are the places to enjoy informal drinks. www.gate-hotel.jp/english/
