Below, we introduce two karaksa hotels you’ll want to stay at during your Tokyo travels.

1. karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza – Enjoy a Luxurious Stay

karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza is located near Ginza’s main roads and easily accessible from the airport.

This hotel’s charms are found in its luxurious, high-quality space that offers service a step above other karaksa hotels. You can, of course, spend time sightseeing in Tokyo while also having a fulfilling time together with your family in the hotel.

Spacious and Comfortable Connecting Rooms

The rooms at karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza, 57 rooms in total, are characterized by luxurious and spacious designs. Room types (*1) include Double, Twin, and Connecting Rooms that can accommodate up to four guests.

Connecting Rooms have their own respective bathrooms (*2) and toilets, which make it a super convenient feature!

Staying in a hotel room with only one modular bathtub, bathroom, and toilet with several people is bound to lengthen waiting times whenever someone uses the bathroom. It especially gets busy during the mornings and evenings when everyone is focused on their daily routines and may even end up cutting into your precious travel time.

If you stay in a Connecting Room, with each room equipped with a separate bathroom and toilet, then you can reduce the amount of waiting time. This makes for a pleasant stay even with children or on a three-generation family vacation.

*1: The number of guests mentioned here refers to the maximum capacity of adults. On a standard plan, children aged six and under may stay at the hotel free of charge if they share a bed with their parents. (Please note there is a maximum of one child per adult for each bed installed in your room.)
*2: Connecting rooms in karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza will include a bathtub in one room and a shower in the other room.
