A Meow-velous Stay in a Hello Kitty Hotel Room (Tokyo, Japan)

by Accommodations, Japan29 comments

For all the Hello Kitty fanatics out there, I bet that there has been a time where you wished to stay (or even live) in a themed Hello Kitty room. (Hello Kitty Hotel Room)

Well, guess what…? You now have the chance to make that dream come true and check it off your bucket list because Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo in Japan has original Hello Kitty rooms available in two stunning themes — so go and get ready to treat your friends, your family, your kids, your girlfriend, or just yourself to this one-of-a-kind indulgence!

NOTE: If in case you haven’t heard of Hello Kitty before (which I find hard to believe), she’s basically a fictional character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio in 1974 and who has since been a global phenomenon and superstar for people of all ages. To illustrate, the character has turned 40 years old in 2014 and she was estimated to be worth about $7 billion a year — all without advertising! Clearly, her whole popularity is ‘effortless’ in a sense.

UPDATE: Keio Plaza Hotel now also offers other Sanrio-themed rooms for characters like “My Melody” and “Little Twin Stars”. For more information, see here.

I may not exactly be a crazy enthusiast of the franchise today, but Hello Kitty has surely been a part of my childhood. In fact, there has actually been a time back in elementary school where I begged my mom to have all of my stuff in pink Hello Kitty fashion.

That’s why when Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo invited me to see their themed Hello Kitty room, a wave of nostalgia overwhelmed me and I gladly said YES in a heartbeat!

Hello Kitty Hotel Room

You can watch the short video below that summarizes my tour:

Like what you have seen, Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo has two versions of their Hello Kitty Room, the first of which is…

» Kitty Town Theme

Hello Kitty
Rainbow Room
Hello Kitty Ideas

Area: 40.8 sqm
Bed: Available in 2 or 3
Price: From 24,800 yen or $245

Splashed in fun pastel and neon colors, this Hello Kitty room is a feast for the eyes with its pop art ‘feel’! To add, every single thing in the room is branded — from the towels, to your slippers, the hairdryer, the humidifier, the keys, the water bottles, the toiletries, the kettle, and more.

» Princess Kitty Theme

Pink Room
Pink Hello Kitty
Hello Kitty Bathroom

Area: 40.8 sqm
Bed: Available in 2 or 3
Price: From 24,800 yen or $245 per person

In contrast to that of Kitty Town, the Princess Kitty is masked under a more serious and elegant tone as it lets you spend a staycation like a fairytale princess! What I especially loved with this room is the unique heel-shaped couch for the living room area.

Hello Kitty Hotel Room

Overall

This is a unique experience that you should NOT miss out on, especially if Hello Kitty has been a part of your life at some point (no matter how brief that may have been). Or better yet, go and gift this experience to a Hello Kitty lover who you know and love. I guarantee you that it will be a pleasant surprise that they will forever remember!

Of course, this is all thanks to Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo for whipping up these amazing and fun-themed Hello Kitty rooms. The price may be hefty, but it will be an enjoyable affair that’s worth every cent!

    Funny enough I never knew Hello Kitty as a kid, but because it really is a world phenomenon I now know it. This is great for any fan I would assume. They put a lot of effort and attention to the details. I love the pink bathtub and would love to try the desserts :)

    Omg, this really took me back! I was never a super fan, but I did have Hello Kitty things when I grew up and I think it would be really cool to stay at the hotel. I love that heel-shaped couch too!
