The Prince Akatoki London, formerly known as The Arch London hotel, has re-opened after it was closed for renovation.
The hotel lobby and entrance now feature light muted interior décor of timber and a feature vase by ceramicist, Adam Ross. Individual circular pods serve as check-in stations adjacent to sleek dark timber, discreet metallic lighting and Japanese joinery and furniture designed by designers, B&B Italia.
Seibu Holdings' CEO, Goto said: “We are delighted to announce we have opened The Prince Akatoki London. Akatoki is an old expression of Akatsuki meaning sunrise, before dawn, a new beginning and speaks to a new time for Prince Hotels and Resorts, reflecting our international growth of the business.”
The property's 82 renovated rooms and suites feature timber beds and slender lighting, fusuma panel-inspired wall hangings, white walls, Japanese inspired lamp desks and detailed mirrors.
StayWell Holdings' president and director, Simon Wan said: “The hotel, will see travellers experience five-star luxury hospitality, inspired by Japan and amenities that reflect key elements of the unique, refined and generous Japanese hospitality and culture.”
