SUITE ROOMS -MERCURE TOKYU STAY OSAKA NAMBA-
The Nishi-Shinsaibashi area (formerly Sumiyacho) was called “Sumiyacho” in the old days, as charcoal was collected from Osaka Bay through the Dotonbori River.
As the years progressed to the 1970s, the quiet warehouse district was transformed into cafes, boutiques, live houses, and studios by local creators, and today it has evolved into a district of street culture that leads the most vibrant youth culture in the Kansai region. Namely “Shinbura”, this region is well known both in Japan and abroad.
MERCURE TOKYU STAY OSAKA NAMBA, a new double-branded hotel of “Mercure” and “Tokyu Stay,” will become an “Atelier Hub” through the interactions rooted in the local community. The interior is designed based on the region’s unique culture of the creative mindset of fashion, music, and art, whilst aiming to become a new “Launching Pad for youth culture” where highly conscious guests and local creators can meet and exchange various information.
The 288 guest rooms consists of Standard Rooms with iconic design furniture in a minimal space, Pre-village Rooms dedicated for long-term guests equipped with a mini-kitchen and laundry facilities, and finally an Open-Plan Suites with large windows overlooking the Minami district of Osaka, offering a panoramic view of the cityscape. The rooms are designed to meet the needs and purposes of guests of all ages and nationalities.
With the theme of “Creator’s Atelier”, the design extracts the color scheme and patterns used in the fashion culture unique to Shinsaibashi and then converted to new and playful products to provide an exciting time for guests who are accustomed to traveling.
