NEW! Tokyo gets another interesting hotel in the form of Wired Hotel, which sits in the buzzing and historic Asakusa district on the city's Northeastern fringe.
The hotel taps into the trend for multi-use spaces that merge cafe culture, entertainment, arts and local knowledge to give travelers a bit more than just a bed and breakfast.
Accomodation ranges from hostel style dorms suitable for groups through to a luxurious penthouse suite. Wired Hotel represents a good example of the trend for smart or afforable luxury that defies traditional hotel star rating systems.
If the hotel feels a bit like an Ace Hotel, that's because the design and branding was done by OMFGCO, the Portland-based design stuido that's done a lot of work with Ace over the years. Wired Hotel is a great new option for Tokyo and worth checking out. Full review coming soon.
