OMO5, You Cool.

Hoshino Resorts OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka is located in a cute part of town called Otsuka, or shall I say, part of Metropolitan Tokyo. Let’s get real, Tokyo is huge! The city alone has a population of 20million people, it makes Australia’s population, tiny in comparison.

I love Otsuka. There were streets filled with little Japanese restaurants and bars. It’s low key and local.

I’m loving the loft style bedroom at OMO5. Small and compact, it’s perfect for my city dream kind of dwelling. The beds appear at the top bunk, with a lounge area at the bottom. It’s a very clever and minimal design. I kept telling the staff, if I have a studio apartment, this would be the inspiration!

The guest rooms are designed in the style of traditional Japanese wooden tower called yagura. The smell of cypress wood and tatami mats, always bring me fond memories of Japan.

OMO5 Cafe was a treat. There were ample of seating area to choose from, we picked one with the Otsuka view. You have got to try their signature morning pastry, vol-au-vents. I’ve got avocado topping for mine.

This is a cool and modern apartment style living, for those who are looking for a different hotel experience. I love OMO5, and I hope to return again.

It was a short stopover in Bangkok for a good 6 hours, and we had planned to have a little siesta at Grand Hyatt Bangkok Erawan.

Grand Hyatt Bangkok is located in the heart of Bangkok, located on Rajdamri Road. It's interconnected to bars, restaurants and Bangkok's top shopping malls.

My little tip to getting into Bangkok city from the Suvarnambhumi International Airport is to always check the traffic on Google Map before hopping on a cab or Uber. We saved up so much time by catching the public transport to Chit Lom Skytrain station. It was a short stroll into Grand Hyatt Bangkok.

Our room was cosy. Loving the Queen size bed with a view of the bustling streets of Bangkok. There was even two elephants (sculpted from hand towels... how very cute!) to welcome us to our Grand Hyatt room. Soft sheets and fluffy pillows, we felt very much at home.

Our favourite has got to be dinner time at Erawan Tea Room for an authentic Thai cuisine. Scroll down to the next blog post to read all about it.
