While searching for accommodations for our Tokyo trip, I stumbled upon the Keio Plaza Hotel in the heart of Shinjuku. The rooms were much larger than other Japanese hotels, which appealed to us. After looking around on their website, I realized that they have a few themed Hello Kitty rooms and I knew I had to make it happen for Milana! We didn’t tell her and just handed her a key to our room. She loves finding the numbers on the door and using the key, so she was excited to find this one. Little did she know, this was a very special room! The first give away that this was a different room was the pink bow on the door. See her reaction for yourself in this video:
The room is fairly large by Japanese standards and had 2 beds plus a sitting area. The entire wall was covered in Hello Kitty themed wallpaper, art and pictures.
There were Hello Kitty details on everything in the room, from the tea kettle to all the accessories in the bathroom (scale, hair dryer, etc.). There was a list of items you can take home, which included the Hello Kitty dolls that were on the bed, slippers, and a few other random items. The details in this room were amazing and Milana really loved staying here. Our view was of the city, which was great!
The next morning, we ordered the Hello Kitty breakfast to be delivered to our room. Everything was super cute and themed and Milana loved it!
If you are looking for a cute, themed room while in Tokyo, I highly recommend the Hello Kitty room at Keio Plaza. We stayed in Shinjuku but there are other locations as well. One of those being a 5 minute walk to Sanrio Puroland, so research your areas before you book. Since there are only 8 of these rooms, I highly recommend booking early if you know you want to stay there in case they sell out! There are two themes to choose from. We chose Kitty Town but Princess Kitty is also available. This was definitely the hilight of the trip for Milana, she talks about the Hello Kitty room every day and wants to go back to see it.
