There are many who choose hotels around Shinjuku, Ueno, or Ikebukuro when traveling to Tokyo. Most aren’t concerned with shopping or restaurants at their hotels because they only use it as a place to sleep.
At Hotel LYURO, you can gaze at the Sky Tree in the afternoon from the terrace while feeling a gentle breeze or enjoy the night view while bathing. You can also indulge in a delicious breakfast and craft beers at the hotel.
Kiyosumi-Shirakawa is one of Tokyo’s newest attractions where many cafés and general stores full of personality are emerging. Why not try and visit the area?
LYURO Tokyo-Kiyosumi: The Share Hotel's Concept
This building was originally a delivery center for fruit dealers. The building was newly renovated and remodeled by a design company and it has now become a hotel that is gaining considerable attention.
Many visitors come to Kiyosumi-Shirakawa with the goal of experience its charming downtown atmosphere. They walk through Kiyosumi Garden and stroll through stores with the immensely popular Blue Bottle Coffee in one hand... but it’s a waste to return home just like that.
The hotel utilizes an open space that is not only for sightseeing, but also to create connections between visitors from all over the world and locals.
Art created by local craftsmen is also sold here. All the people and objects in Kiyosumi-Shirakawa come together here.
Public Slow Space
*1 Kawadoko: A dining area built along the river. You can enjoy your food while gazing at the river.
It is a public space even for those not staying at the hotel, so locals also come here when taking their dogs on walks. The restaurant inside the hotel offers a special takeout menu and coffee which you can then enjoy on the terrace.
There are all sorts of events held irregularly, such as the Sumida River Fireworks Festival, one of Tokyo’s biggest summer events, which can be seen from the terrace. Entrance during events is regulated for safety reasons, so please inquire at the hotel for more details.
There are multiple types of guest rooms prepared to meet guest demands, whether they be single guests, families, or those staying with friends.
This is a double bedroom. It can be used by one or two people. The room faces the Sumida River and you can clearly see both the nearby Kiyosumi Bridge and Sky Tree. There is no doubt you will be able to enjoy the scenery of Tokyo from your room.
The river view is all yours from the bathroom.
Inside the bathroom are rechargeable waterproof speakers. You can connect your smartphone to the speakers with Bluetooth and play your favorite music.
This openable storage door is very fashionable. It has various uses; it becomes a partition for the bathroom when closed and allows for storage such as hanging your coat or putting away your slippers when opened.
Shampoos and other shower products provided by the hotel are Japan-made brands that will leave your hair nicely moisturized. It won't leave your hair with a messy feeling the next day.
The four-person rooms are so spacious that they won’t feel cramped, even when sleeping on the sofa.
The wallpapers are river themed with a Japanese-like feel to them. You will be able to grasp what life was like by the river in ancient Japan.
The two types of guest rooms mentioned above come with bath utilities and a room with a separate washbasin. These rooms are recommended to those who would like to maintain their privacy.
Next is the economy class guest room. These rooms are recommended to those who are traveling with a group of three or more friends or to those who want to save even just a little bit of money.
The view from this room is outstanding as well. You will be able to experience a somewhat different atmosphere come nighttime when the bridge lights up.
It seems lately that there are many young Japanese job hunters and backpackers who reserve these rooms. Though it is a shared sleeping space, guests are guaranteed their own space with a curtain and locker.
Women-only rooms are also available. If you are concerned about staying in a unisex room, please choose the women-only rooms.
