Stay

Rest in style on Tokyo's fringeTokyo, Japan

Open since 2003, Claska has been favoured by design lovers on a budget ever since. There are just 20 rooms in a variety of styles, but each has its own minimalist charm and buckets of natural light. Some are furnished in simple tatami, others have carefully selected art and antiques to add an individual touch, while a few of the rooms have been created by local designers and two feature ample terraces.

Downstairs is Kiokuh, a chic cafe and bar that blends French and Italian influences with local produce, as well as Dogman, a grooming salon for the neighbourhood’s pampered pooches, and a gallery and shop called 'Do'. Admire the Tokyo Tower and Mount Fuji from the rooftop terrace of the capital's original design hotel or zip off on one of Claska's custom-made fleet of Tokyo Bikes and explore little-known Meguro. Or hunker down in your huge bed and Instagram the hell out of this uber hip, multi-purpose complex.
