[Love Hotel] Hotel Iroha Roppongi - Room 102
A Ryokan theme love hotel, in Roppongi, with Rotenburo (not this room but, stil!) !?
This is one of the Ryokan styles from the three stars group, the same group that operates Hotel The Sense. The design of the two hotels is very similar. I wanted to use room 201 which has a nice-looking Rotenburo but it wasn’t available at the time.
Room 102 was available at the time. It looks better than the rest of other rooms available.
The room is big for a love hotel in Roppongi. I was surprised by how spacious the room is. The bed is large and comfortable. The sofa at the corner of the raised platform. is also very nice. The varying level between the bed and the sofa makes the room feels bigger, a clever design.
We found the space at the head of the bed to be quite fun to use.
There is an HDMI input port at the low table next to the bed. It was nice to be able to plug your entertainment, be it a laptop or a game console to the TV.
The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the famous Roppongi junction. It is on a quiet street. You wouldn’t think there will be a love hotel here if you just walk passed in front of it.
There is another love hotel right opposite Iroha, with an obvious name Hotel Roppongi I might give it a try next time.
Similar to Hotel the Sense, this love hotel does not feel like a love hotel. It is more like a good design of modern Ryokan. The lobby is on the ground floor and yet they marked it as a second floor. Rooms on the first floor are technically in the basement. With some clever design, they managed to get the sunlight from the outside into the room.
I like the design and the calmness of the room, and the fact that it is in Roppongi makes it even more impressive.
I do not have much experience with love hotels in the Roppongi area. This is the only love hotel I have been to in that area. Based on the price list of the closest love hotel, they seem to be in the same range. We went there during the service time so the price is reasonable. The price is much more expensive during the peak time, usually after 4 PM until 2 AM the next day.
Comparing it with The Sense in Shinjuku, then the price is a bit higher at Iroha.
