Claska Hotel

The boutique hotel Claska, tucked into the Meguro district of downtown Tokyo, is the brainchild of architects Iku Hirose and Yoshitsugu Takemoto, who transformed the space from a 1960s business hotel into a stunning, minimalistic and modern hotel. Tei Shuwa redesigned the eight-story hotel’s interiors and the once-was defunct building now beautifully houses a restaurant, bar, the Do Gallery & Shop and another gallery with revolving exhibits of cutting-edge Japanese design.

And while the hotel is far from an elitist oasis, only nine guest rooms make last-minute bookings virtually impossible. However, guests looking for an extended stay in Tokyo have their option of 23 guest rooms to choose between. These rooms are available for stays six months or longer.

Everything from the floor to the furnishings in the Claska Hotel is intended to relax and rejuvenate guests. Splashes of color and contemporary design are intentional, but in total, white décor dominates. A peek at the interior of the hotel on Remodelista reveals just how well-done the hotel is in both form and function.
