When it comes to traveling, luxury serviced apartments like the new Oakwood Tokyo Premier are in a unique category. These were previously the accommodations of choice of expatriates who lease by the month. However, recently, some of these apartments have been allowed to open up to shorter periods of stay. Consequently these have become great options for families, couples who like to cook, and solo travelers looking for more space and home comforts, among others.
WHY CHOOSE A SERVICED APARTMENT IN TOKYO?
The case for choosing good serviced apartments over other options is very persuasive. For one thing, the units are generally larger and therefore more comfortable. Sop guests have spacious rooms, plus all the amenities of a hotel. They also have a kitchen and essentials like a washing machine and dryer. There is also full-time reception staff and daily housekeeping services, just like in a top four-star hotel.
IMPORTANCE OF LOCATION
The Oakwood Tokyo Premier is one of the best serviced apartments in the city. Located just steps away from Tokyo Station and the shopping districts of Ginza and Nihonbashi, it’s an ideal base for guests looking to stay in the center of everything.
Moreover, getting around Tokyo and the rest of Japan is easy with such a location. There are buses and trains straight to Tokyo Station from Tokyo’s airports, and all the bullet trains to the North and the South of Japan depart from here as well.
ALL THE SERVICES OF A HOTEL
The serviced apartment itself is furnished with a refined feel similar to other modern luxury hotels in Tokyo. It has all the services provided by a top four-star hotel. It also has a much better location, too. Moreover, Oakwood Premier Tokyo offers more quiet and privacy since only guests access the lobby.
On the lobby floor is a cafe, two floors high, that serves breakfast, coffee and tea, and cocktails. It’s a lounge for relaxing and meeting other guests. We always thought we would try this lounge. However, our apartment was so comfortable that we never felt the need to leave it.
A HOTEL THAT FEELS LIKE HOME
By Tokyo standards, this apartment is perfect for holidays and spacious enough for long-term residency. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms are all spacious, as are the kitchen and the combined living room and dining room.
Usually, kitchens in serviced apartments in Tokyo are afterthoughts rather than well-designed spaces because most guests prior to the pandemic never really planned to do anything more difficult than heat up a packaged meal in the microwave. Our kitchen at Oakwood Premier Tokyo was furnished completely so that we could roast lamb chops and cook lobster spaghetti with great ease at the same time.
A visit to Tokyo is notoriously expensive, especially for those wishing to travel with the family in a style of luxury. Quality accommodations in Central Tokyo are prohibitively priced, as are restaurant meals. However, with options like the top-of-class Oakwood Premier Tokyo serviced apartment, Tokyo can feel more like home and happy trips need not break the bank after all.
