Kitano Arms
Ranked #63 of 78 Hotels / Ryokan in Chiyoda
Reviewed 26 June 2005

Are you looking for a comfortable, fair price-valued accommodation in Tokyo with good traffic connection? Kitano Arms is a very good alternative.
Even the room in standard category is really large enough and good equiped to have a comfortable stay of more than three days.
Simply ask for a quite (facing to the back) and renovated room in upper levels (higher than 4th floor) including high-speed-internet access.
Everything is clean and well maintained, however, do not expect the newest building standard. The contact and reception is very friendly.
Nagatocho-station is closely located with access to Hanzomon-line and Nanboku-line. The underground pathway leads you also to Akasaka-Mitsuke-Station with additional connection to Ginza-Line and Marunouchi-Line.

The Kitano Arms is an apartment building that rents out furnished rooms for moderate-length stays (5 to 7 days minimum). For about the price of a mid-level Tokyo hotel room (JPY13000 plus 5%tax "special introductory price" booked via Travelocity), my room at the Kitano was about twice as large, and included a kitchenette (burner, microwave, sink, fridge, a simple set of dishes for 2).

The main room had a king-size bed (actually two twins pushed together with king sheets, but comfortable enough), separated by a knee wall from a living area with small couch and table, small dining table and 2 chairs, and a good-sized work desk with a high speed dataport. There are sliding paper screens and solid screens in front of the windows (but no curtains on the curtain rod), and a ton of storage space.

The condition of the room was not so great. Although the room was clean, the carpet was old, worn, patched, and stained. The closets smelled musty. Furniture was a bit worn. There's no washlet, nor are any amenities provided other than soap. Maid service is provided 2 or 3 times a week.

My ninth floor room at the rear faced away from the raised expressway, looking over nearby roofs, and was very quiet. Rooms at the front may not fare so well, as the expressway is extremely close to the front of the building.

There is a pool on the roof which is open for limited hours on Summer weekends only, and a cafe on the first floor which seems to be open only for lunch and maybe breakfast on weekdays.

There is someone on duty at the front desk at all times, but outside of normal business hours it was just a security guard. All the personnel I met were extremely courtous and helpful, and spoke at least rudimentary English.

Location, not far from the Akasaka Prince Hotel, is good if you're on business in that part of Akasaka, but only OK otherwise - there is a subway station at the hotel's front door, but it's still a 10 minute underground walk to the train.

Although the size of the room was a wonderful treat for Japan, the condition of the room and lack of services and amenities left me somewhat disappointed, compared to my experiences at other Tokyo hotels. But, for a large no-frills room at a reasonable price, the Kitano Arms may be a good bet.
