Monkeys to Stay in a Luxury Hotel Right in the Heart of Tokyo

Roppongi Prince Hotel


Hotel Details:
Roppongi Prince Hotel
Designed by internationally known architect Kurokawa Kisho, the Roppongi Prince Hotel is built around an inner court with an open-air, sky-blue swimming pool in the center. The décor is modernistic with bright colors and contemporary furniture reflecting the latest design trends in Tokyo.

A quiet oasis located just off of busy Roppongi Dori, the hotel is an easy walk downhill to Tokyo's pulsating entertainment district and nightlife.

The Area

Roppongi, just south of Akasaka, has become Tokyo's most cosmopolitan and popular nightlife area. It is especially popular with young people and visitors who are attracted to its art movie theaters, experimental theater and restaurants offering a variety of ethnic cuisines. Roppongi is also the music and club center of Tokyo. You can find just about any music you want here - jazz, hip-hop, country, classical, pop, the works.

Whatever the reason for its popularity, Roppongi is one of the best spots in town to meet other foreigners and pick up on information about what's happening in Tokyo.
