The ultra-stylish, minimalist Prince Akatoki, just north of Oxford Street, is an idyllic slice of tranquillity away from the chaos that is Marble Arch at any time of the week. Formerly The Arch, the hotel has been completely transformed by Japanese brand Prince Hotels and has become the group’s first five-star hotel worldwide. The airy space has been redecorated with pale wood, soft lighting, cream walls and delicate, decorative touches that form the hotel’s signature serene feel.
The design-led rooms are kept deliberately simple, equipped with just the essentials – a bed, a desk and chairs, a minibar, a TV and a bathroom with a bath – in keeping with the minimalist vibe. But there are plenty of extra elements that make The Prince unique. Expect a yukata robe to lounge in, a yoga mat set, MALIN+GOETZ toiletries, evening chamomile in a traditional tea set, complimentary glasses of sake or Champagne on arrival and free soft drinks in the minibar.
In the evening, treat yourself to dinner at the in-house restaurant TOKii. Inspired by Japanese flavours combined with international ingredients, the dishes at TOKii are cooked with flair to create exciting fusion cuisine. Enjoy the likes of lobster croquettes, teriyaki duck breast, robata grilled halibut t-bone and signature sushi. Finally, finish off your stay with a traditional Japanese breakfast, made up of a tomago omelette, miso soup, rice, steamed vegetables, grilled salmon and egg tofu.
If that sounds like your ideal city escape, you’re in luck. We’ve teamed up with The Prince Akatoki to give our INSIDERS the chance to get a FREE one-night stay at the hotel, plus a dinner for two at TOKii. Find out how you could win below. GOOD LUCK!
