Location of this hotel is excellent, central and extremely well connected.
3 metro lines are a cross the street, and another 2 a little walk away.
Its relative proximity to the Imperial palace makes it a good option to
walk along its moat to the kokusai forum and Ginza area
My room was a moderate single. Upon check-in, I requested a good view room
and was told that my room was a high floor. I knew beforehand that rooms
either face the modern tokyo akasaka modern cityscape or a kind of garden
on the backside.
My room was a moderate single room, wide by Tokyo standards. It was facing this backside, with it's extremely high trees. I was
little disappointed in the beginning as the room looked dull, but this
proved to be a big asset, and it was kind of a nice retreat in the hustle
and bustle of Tokyo, with genuine bird singing every morning!
Looking into the rooms map, I also realized that all the moderate single
rooms seem to be on this garden side.
Fridge and expresso machine come very handy for any stay longer than a
couple of days. Seven-eleven in the ground floor has all what you might
need (now), grocery, stationary, umbrellas, cosmetics, lunch boxes the
genius of Japanese convenience store! And foremost: an ATM accepting
international bank cards, which is otherwise difficult to find in Japan,
even in many big name bank ATMs.

Staff was always courteous, willing, and able to speak good English
(although I wanted to try my Japanese). High sense of safety prevails.
Free wifi is included with daily cards which gives access for up to 3
devices. It is little inconvenient, However to have to input login data
everyday in 3 devices, as the duration of each login is only 24 hours.
Moderate single room seemed a bit tighter than it's advertised 19 sq
meters, but it is surely a wide room by Tokyo standards.

Airport shuttle bus from the door of the hotel is another big asset.
Despite the last bus would put me in Narita almost 5 hours ahead of my
flight, I opted for this option with my heavy suitcase.

Room Tip: a room to the backside will provide a tranquil retreat

We preferred to stay at this hotel because of its location and the hourly coach service facility to the narita airport. The hotel rooms are good, seems old but very well maintained. The staff is freindly and both check in and check out was very smooth and fast. It has good places to eat, supermarkets and the main subway station near by.

I guess given the location in Akasaka, a main business district and close to the subway station and entertainment district in the area (and less than a JPY 1,000 cab ride to Roppongi), this isn't a bad option. However, the room was so hot at night it was uncomfortable to sleep and when I woke up. Even though I had the air conditioning on the lowest temperature, it was too hot, and it was early April when I stayed there, so I do wonder what it would be like in summer. In addition, the bed wasn't that comfortable - in particular, the pillows were hard. The breakfast was very average. Also, I booked a non-smoking room about a month in advance, but there wasn't one available (maybe some of these complaints are a common problem in Japan?). Just ok - perhaps it would be worth forking out the extra money to stay in a western-branded hotel which doesn't have these problems. On the plus side, the room was very clean and tidy, the service was friendly and attentive, and as I mentioned the location is pretty good given the price is quite reasonable.

I stayed in the hotel 4 nights on my vacation in Tokyo. I enjoy travelling to rural areas like Kamakura and Kawagoe so I take the JR and subway a lot. The location of the hotel is located opposite of Akasaka station, which is right in the middle of Tokyo station and Shinjuku. I can easily get to Tokyo station to change to JR trains for rural areas, whilst I can just as easily get to Shinjuku for shopping and food.

There is also a Bic Camera, a pharmacy (a must go in Japan), a street filled with restaurants (my personal favourite is a cafe named Choco Croc) and convenient stores all around. So if you just want a quick bite near the hotel, that is also available.

there is also an airport limousine bus stpp right in front of the hotel.

All in all, perfect location.

Aa for the room, it is perfect for Westerners. It is quite big considering it is in Tokyo. There is also a nespresso machine and a bose sound system which is a nice touch. The air purifier/humidifier is also a god sent. The bed and pillow is very comfortable although the duvet is a bit heavy for spring weather. There is free wifi which is very nice.

The bathroom is well equiped, with the ubiquitous heated toilet seat and a rainbath shower with massaging spray heads in the wall.

All in all, excellent functionality.

There is no free breakfast coupons as in most Japanes hotels but because I usually leave my room late in the morning anyways I prefer it like this so the coupons wont go to waste.

The staff are friendly and spoke decent English.

Excellent hotel. Will definitely recommend to others and will go back next time if I travel to Tokyo again.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in early April, and it was a great way to start a 3 week trip throughout Japan.

The hotel was easy to get to from Narita Airport. Though we had the option to take rail, there is the "Airport Limousine" shuttle bus that stops here among about 6 other hotels. After a long day of flying, an easy and direct option is appreciated.

Staff was very friendly and certainly spoke enough English for us to get all settled with no trouble. Bags were delivered directly to the room.

The rooms are decent sized for Japanese rooms - modern and clean. The bathroom was large and the shower had a fantastic 'rain-shower' style shower head, best of all the hotels we stayed at. Windows did not open, but each room had a cooling air purifier which kept the room cool provided you could figure out the buttons. I hear that windows in rooms on the street side do open.

The hotel is very conveniently located right next door to the Tokyo Metro Akasaka-Mitsuke station, through which runs the Ginza and Marunouchi lines. From this central location, it was easy travel in all directions to other major stops, often with no transfers.

Attached to the hotel is a 7-Eleven, which is a tourist's best friend in Japan. 7-Eleven ATMs are among the few that will accept North American bank cards, and the consistent selection of foods and amenities is very useful after a long day of traveling around. Several other restaurants are also located directly in Tokyu Plaza with a variety of styles.

Across the street, the BIC Camera store offers a wide range of electronics and general goods (even a pharmacy), and the narrow streets around and behind the building offer a great range of smaller eateries, cafes, and sweet shops.

As a first-time visitor to Japan, this hotel is highly recommended. #1 out of the 8 different accommodations we stayed at while in Japan. Location, nearby amenities, transit access - all top-notch.
