An indispensable guide that will help you find the swankiest accommodations on your next visit to the country.

Claska 03.3719.8121
Hotels: Nov 15, 2004

claska_exterior_nov_15With rooms featured in countless magazines, it doesn't get much more stylish than the Claska, located in Meguro. Featuring a Transit produced lounge on the first floor lobby (appropriately called The Lobby), a small bookstore (stocking books that would certainly interest readers of this site), and a gallery space on the second floor, the hotel acts as a destination for residents as well as guests. Even their bicycles for rent share in the spot's design sensibility. It tops my list of places to stay while visiting the city.
