What is Love Hotel?


Love Hotel is a hotel where couples make love.


Sounds funny?


But that’s what it is and some Japanese go there quite often.

Love Hotels were exclusively used for sexual activities and all they needed was a bed. However, they have been changing to attract female guests.

Some have traditional Japanese tatami (rice straw mat), computer games, rotating beds, ceiling mirrors and even Karaoke. Some have bigger rooms for party.


Anyone can use Love Hotels. Some Love Hotels might reject the same-sex couples, while others accept them.



Where is Love Hotel?

You can find Love hotels in the most major cities. Some huge Love Hotels are built by highway or major road so that it’s easy to access.

In cities, Love Hotels are located near stations and couples don’t have to drive.




Who can Use Love Hotel?

Basically anyone can use Love Hotel. Young couples in their 20s, mature couples in their 40s, 50s etc.

The only thing you should note is that some Love Hotels don’t accept the same-sex couples.

Some people use Love Hotels during the day because they have a secret affair or something that they must hide (i.e. prostitution, etc).



How does Love Hotel Work?



Wherever you go, you need to consider two things: duration of stay and a room.

There are usually two kinds of stay. One is for rest and the other one is for an overnight stay. 

Rest is usually for 1-3 hours and over night stay is available after 10p.m.


Some people go to the same Love Hotel, while others try new Love Hotels. If you walk inside the hotel, there is a counter.

The staff helps you to choose a room for you.


In some Love Hotels, you can choose a room by picture on the screen monitor or panel without talking to any staff.



How Much does it Cost to Use Love Hotel?


The price varies depending on location, duration of stay and time you check in.

Cities are of course pricey, whereas suburb area is more reasonable.


For instance, in Shibuya, Tokyo, price for 3 hour-rest is 4,000-7,000 yen. Overnight stay could range 8,000-15,000 yen. Some exceed 20,000 yen.

Near Chiba station, on the other hand, 2 hour-rest is as low as 3,000 yen, while overnight stay is 6,000-9,000 yen.


Holidays, weekend are usually more expensive and busy.



When is a Good Time to Go Love Hotel?

You can basically go anytime you want. They open 24 hours and they accept you as long as there are available rooms.

Because most Love Hotels increase the price during night, it’s cheaper to go during the day.

Interestingly, some people always use Love Hotels during the day, so some places might be busy.


Some Love Hotels have late-check-in discount. In order to get such discount, you need to go there after 2a.m. (time and rules vary).



How to Choose Love Hotel



If you are men, you might not care where to go and just want to jump on bed.


But wait!


If you want to have a great time with your partner, let your girl choose where to go. Let her choose the room.

Girls love something cute, clean and nice. It’s just a Love Hotel, but they want to choose somewhere nice.

They want to enjoy its atmosphere and enjoy sex with you.




You don’t have to go to Love Hotels if you have your own place or if your partner has his or her place.

It’s fun to visit Love Hotels sometimes if you like something special.


There are different kinds of Love Hotels so you better check online before heading.

Girls might have specific preference but there is one thing you should always watch out: don’t take your girlfriend to a dirty, old Love Hotel.


Just like regular hotels, old Love Hotels are cheaper and attractive if you don’t want to spend money on them. But if you go such a place, she might not go with you again. Ever.
