Just arrived in London St. Pancras station and 4 tube stops later, I’m on Piccadilly Circus, 2 minutes walk from the Sofitel Saint James located away from the crowd, in a little place that I didn’t know. The hotel is housed in an heritage building: a former imposing bank with incredibly high ceilings! After a warm welcome at reception desk by a French-English bilingual staff, I discover my room: simple, elegant and spacious, in a range of black, white and brown. Lovely bathroom with the old faucet and tiled black and white checkered. What a pity amenities are limited to one soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner … all Hermès okay! But for short stays, to lighten my bag I bring the bare minimum like a mini make-up and cleanser, because I usually find everything else in the room. Damned, this time I didn’t take my toothbrush, toothpaste nor body cream (LOL!): thankfully Boots is in Piccadilly Circus! Otherwise leaving my room with its so cozy vibe and “you’re in London Baby!” exotic view (picture 3) and comfortable king size bed, is a huge challenge my dear (lol)! Photo 4: a regressive wallpaper in the entrance to the room (picture 4). And for lasting this cozy atmosphere, a breakfast full of vitamins at the beautiful Balcon, the relaxed chic brasserie of the hotel (pictures 6 & 7). Too hard to leave it to go to my meetings! Picture 5: amazing chandelier ceiling of a hotel suite.

In the refine and intimate Hyatt Regency Kyoto, you feel like in a boutique hotel, with high end service. I have a big crush on this elegant small nest in Kyoto : Kimonos fabrics above the bed, natural white oak on walls and for furniture, windows with a view to the bamboo garden. The room is not big, but you feel like in a zen cocoon you leave not easily and get back with happiness. The granite bathroom (behind the glass door, photo 4), including a shower with a wood stool and a large bath, is a great pleasure. Comfortable, different!!! Suki desu.
