Japanese hotel room porn

I have a fetish for looking voyeuristically at hotel rooms. That’s why it always takes me so long to choose a hotel – because I pour over photos of the rooms and try to weigh up which floor plan would be the best and which room has a toilet with the most features (actually I tend to choose my hotel by its proximity to the 100 yen shop…)

This is where I stayed for work:

I got so used to the toilet flushing as I walked away that I had to train myself to start pushing the button again when I got back to Perth! First world problems!!! (that machine just outside the bathroom door is an air cleaner and ionizer.)

Now, is this a rainfall shower, or is this a rainfall shower?

Remember how I mentioned that amenities are fantastic? Hairbrush, toothbrush & toothpaste, razor, shaving foam, hairbands, body loofah, make-up remover gel, face wash, toner, face cream, green tea hand and body cream, cotton buds (and the little sign in there says that if I need girlie sanitary things, I can ring reception for free ones as well.)

Nespresso machine with four flavours of capsules replenished daily

I could set my bed to light, sound and vibrate me up (get your mind out of the gutter people!)

This is not a super fancy five-star hotel. It was $150/night right across from Tokyo station. (In Perth, $150 a night will get you a 1970’s busted decor room with a bed and possibly a functioning bathroom…maybe.) This hotel also has smaller, cheaper rooms for around $80/night but if you wanted to go even cheaper there are plenty of options.

This is where I stayed for my couple of free days (yes, that is a cushion shaped liked a koala no march cookie.)17th floor, 2 stops from Tokyo station. $75/night.

Hand-made choccies in fridge, iron, jasmine, green & roasted tea, room humidifier, iPod dock (behind the kettle) and a foot massager is just out of shot.

Neither hotel offers room service (which I never use anyway) but if you want a fast brekkie, the staff will run next door to the Lotteria hamburger joint and grab you a brekkie combo (sausage or shrimp burger, fries or veggie juice & coffee or tea/orange juice) for $5 and deliver it to your room.

I also stayed at two other hotels but didn’t take photos (because I am a slack bitch). The only thing I don’t like about Japanese hotels is that 99% of them have really hard beds. And I mean hard beds. But I guess if your toilet opens its own lid, you can put up with a hard bed for a few nights.
