Guides / Hotel


Perhaps the best-known boutique hotel in Tokyo, Claska is also the very first boutique hotel in the city. As such, its floor-by-floor organization of multiple boutique environments under the same roof has quickly become the model other boutique hotels strive to achieve. Amenities range from a first floor restaurant, Kuika, a bookstore, a DJ space, a second floor event and gallery space, rooftop views and photography, and more. Since its renovation and reopenings in 2003, 2004, and 2008, each of Claska’s 30 guest rooms has taken on its own design aesthetic, providing a unique experience with each visit and featuring designers such as Iku Hirose and TCKW.
