9 of the best hotel room views: Igloos that look onto snow-capped mountains and cityscapes reminiscent of Gotham City

Whether it's skyscrapers or winter wonderlands, hotel rooms with a view make any stay all the more magical.  

Ever since I first watched the film Lost in Translation, I've been mesmorised by Tokyo. That endless view, those high-rises stretching as far as the eye can see, and a hotel room that makes it all possible.

And a few years ago I was lucky enough to go to Hong Kong. I stayed in the heart of Kowloon where the city bustles, and almost never sleeps. Malls open at mid-day and stay open till after midnight, and the city is defined by its high-rises. 

My Hong Kong hotel room view gave me a taste of Tokyo, the Tokyo Scarlet Johansson saw from her hotel bedroom... 

Epic, I know.
