Tokyo Is About To Get A Godzilla Hotel

The wait for a giant lizard-themed hotel is almost over. 

The Hotel Gracery Shinjuku, Tokyo, is set to open its doors on 24th April. If you click that link, you'll find lots of lovely information about how the Gracery will offer you a comfortable night's sleep, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a multi-lingual desk in case you don't speak Japanese.

What the website doesn't say, however, is that one of the rooms contains a giant lizard hand hovering over your bed. Or that there is a viewing platform where you can look at a 3D rendering of Godzilla as it bursts out of the cinema next door. Or that, just generally, you shouldn't stay there if you have a chronic fear of big newts.

Assuming none of that puts you off, then you have two options. 

1) Book a night in the Godzilla Room, which contains mountains of memorabilia relating to the films, including an absolutely insane toilet (see below). This will cost you Y39,800 (£216) per night on weeknights, or Y49,800 (£270) at weekends.

2) Book into one of two Godzilla View Rooms, which cost a mere Y15,000 (£80) a night.

Stay there while you can, before the hotel loses its kitsch appeal, gets bought by the Americans and moved to New York.
