Accor has expanded its portfolio of ibis hotels
in Asia with the ibis Tokyo Shinjuku, the
first ibis hotel in Japan.
The rebranded hotel is located right in the
heart of Tokyo’s Shinjuku centre and only three minutes away from
the world’s busiest train station.
“Ibis Tokyo Shinjuku will bring in a fresh
sensation to the economy hotel industry in the country’s capital.
As Accor’s leading economy hotel brand, ibis has earned a
worldwide reputation for excellent services at very competitive
prices,” said Patrick Basset, Accor’s Vice President for Vietnam,
the Philippines, South Korea and Japan. “This hotel is the first
ibis hotel brand to set foot in Japan, but it will be the 10th
hotel in Accor’s Japan network.”
The 206-room ibis Tokyo Shinjuku will begin an extensive refurbishment over the
following months. Once complete, the hotel will become a key
addition to the Ibis network, accumulating the numbers to almost
100 hotels and over 17,340 rooms in Asia Pacific region.
Shinjuku is a major commercial and
administrative centre of Tokyo and one of the 23 special wards in
the Capital. Shinjuku train station is the busiest train station
in the world, with over 3.5 million passengers passing through
each day. The hotel is 1.5 hour away by train from Tokyo Narita
International Airport and 45 minutes away by train from Tokyo
Haneda International Airport.
