More and more people are looking for a comfortable way to spend their time, in their
own way and with their own values. With this in mind, we envisioned a new kind of "place" where people can
share their diverse lifestyles in a casual manner.
The word “Intimate” expresses this idea. We worked on designing a world where there is no need for formalities, where there is music to lift your spirits, and where you can enjoy friendly conversation and thoughtful service in a casually sophisticated space.
From the first floor, you go directly to the top floor.
A different world opens up, isolated from the bustling city.
A view of the Sky Tree through the full-length plate glass window is breathtaking.
Next, you may see the find yourself beneath the ceiling decorations titled "Cloud," art by Katsuhiko Hibino, and in a space surrounded by graphics created by Taku Satoh, as well as a public area connected to the restaurant through latticed glass.
Another open area that will enhance your stay.
On the rooftop, there is a bar and an open terrace for the exclusive use by guests.
This is a great place to enjoy the panoramic night view and the famous fireworks display spreading in front of you.
The guest rooms are designed with the utmost importance placed on personal time, and the view of Asakusa from the windows, with its deep, calm shades, leads to a sense of relaxation and release.
The entire hotel has been designed with the intention of offering a familiarity, not influenced by trends, a unique view of the Sky Tree and Sensoji Temple, a pleasant feeling of naturally interacting with the open air, and a space that softly connects various scenes.
We hope you will enjoy the individuality and design of the hotel, which can only be truly understood through experience.
