The Knot Tokyo Shinjuku – A Hotel that is the Destination

Aug 19, 2019

Recently, lifestyle hotels are a hot trend. These hotels have superior design and offer more than just a room to stay in. Hotels in Japan are aiming to be the “third place”, outside of home and work. This means that hotels want to be a place where staying at the hotel is part of the guest’s travel plans. One such hotel is The Knot Tokyo Shinjuku, a charming lifestyle hotel that we would like to introduce to you in this article.

Chic Design

When you enter the lobby, you will feel as if you have entered the hall of a large corporation. The spacious atrium design will help you feel relaxed, with a restaurant, bar, lounge, and lobby space all connected. The first and second floor space is not only for those staying at the hotel but is available for anyone to use. Thanks to the free high-speed Wi-Fi, there is a positive office-like environment where you can often see teams sitting at tables here doing computer work together quietly discussing their work.

Relax – this hotel isn’t an uptight office. There are vintage and custom-made chairs and sofas lining the lounge with art at every turn. You can eat, move around, relax, lounge or hang out in this welcoming space. Shinjuku Chuo Park is across from the hotel, so you have your own quiet space in the middle of the big city where you can take a walk in the park.

Gorgeous Dishes

One of the highlights of The Knot is its gorgeous dishes. There are six areas where you can get food and drinks that change throughout the day in order to offer all-day dining. Truly fresh ingredients are grilled in the grill area, high-quality black tea is offered at the tea stand, bread experts can teach you the best way to eat the bread you select at the bakery and more. Head to the MORETHAN dining space and find food and drinks that match whatever you’re in the mood for.

Art Space

The overall art curation theme is “1968”, featuring colorful art inspired by anti-war protests that happened around the world in 1968. The curated art features young artists from both inside and outside of Japan. Those who visit The Knot are sure to remember the art that adds to the stylish environment.

After you’re done you’re high-paced sightseeing, refresh at this wonderful hotel where you can enjoy the rest of your day to the fullest.
