Hello Kitty surprise in Tokyo

To say our four-year old daughter loves Hello Kitty is a bit of an understatement. A stay at Preferred Hotels & Resorts Keio Plaza Hotel in Tokyo in one of their outrageously girly Hello Kitty rooms proves to be a highlight in a holiday that has been literally packed with them.
Keio Plaza Hotel’s Hello Kitty themed rooms prove there’s no such thing as too much Hello Kitty. At least to our little one. We’ve kept this treat a surprise and as we open the door, festooned as it is with a signature red bow, for the big reveal, her jaw drops and her squeals of sheer delight can be heard ricocheting on the other side of Tokyo.

This is her kind of hotel room! So much so that any attempts to remove her from it over the next few days results in epic tantrums. The Hello Kitty Town Room is a blast… a pop art explosion of Hello Kitty with everything from the carpet up an ode to the cute Sanrio character. From the giant Hello Kitty that dominates the room, vibrant Kitty strewn wallpaper and the lipstick signed bathroom mirror to the framed pictures, take-home Hello Kitty water bottles, cuddlies and stationary to Kitty themed rubbish bins and hairdryers, our little lovely adores it.


And the experience doesn’t end in-room either with extra special touches including a Hello Kitty mocktail in the Skybar and a Hello Kitty cake that’s almost too cute to eat! Suffice to say our girl is in Hello Kitty heaven!




While not sharing our daughter’s fixation, we too are enamoured with the massive Keio Plaza Hotel complex, located barely five-minutes walk from the neon-lit fun of Shinjuku with its streets of great food and entertainment.


The Keio Plaza Hotel is one of the most family-friendly city hotels we’ve come across in any city. Our VIP- check (that comes standard with Hello Kitty rooms) is seamless and the overall service is so friendly and helpful that the hotel manages to maintain a lovely intimate vibe despite its epic proportions.


On-site facilities are incredible with 20 amazing restaurants and bars plus a convenience store, shops and even art galleries.

Then there’s the raft of family-friendly accommodation (with plenty available for non-Kitty fans), a stunning sky pool, in-house medical clinic and a child-care centre for kids under five. There’s even a nursing room in the lobby! Simply put, the Keio Plaza cares about kids.


Did I mention Disneyland? As if all that wasn’t already enough, the Keio Plaza is a Tokyo Disney Resort Good Neighbor Hotel. That means there’s a complimentary shuttle bus service right outside the door just waiting to ferry us, free of charge, to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney, something we take full advantage of. But that’s another story…

When she’s not treading on Lego and being forced to watch Frozen on loop, Aleney de Winter is a travel, food and parenting writer. She shares tales of travelling and eating along with the hilarious antics of her globetrotting six-year old foodie son and daredevil three-year old daughter on her blog, Boy Eats World
