We love discovering reasonably priced properties with character, and the Gracery really shines. Filling the larger part of a skyscraper, this sleek, surprisingly stylish property has been satisfying guests for a number of years now. The well-designed rooms are a decent size for a central Japanese city hotel, and it’s in one of the best parts of town for things to see and do, surrounded by the buzz of busy restaurants and shops.
You may have heard the Gracery described as ‘the Godzilla hotel’ after one of its more unusual features: an enormous film prop style Godzilla’s head peering down towards the street from a mid-level roof! It claims to be the only Godzilla-themed hotel in the world, and we’re yet to find evidence to the contrary. True fans can even stay in a similarly themed room looking directly out at the iconic movie monster.

This prehistoric sea monster has attacked Tokyo on film many times over the years, and one iteration has ended up hugging the 8th floor of this hotel! Every hour up to 8pm, he roars and breathes smoke, so it’s the full sensory Godzilla experience. This lightness continues throughout the hotel, reminding you of the fun side of Japanese culture.
