“Small, but Good Value & Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

The Akasaka Yoko Hotel was a last-minute choice prior to my solo trip to Japan in July 2011. Yoko is decently priced, clean, and comfortable as long as you're skinny. My single room was slightly larger than a standard hotel bathroom, and the bathroom was, in true Japanese style, about the size of an airplane lavatory. Again, if you're not good in tight spaces, Yoko isn't the place for you. The hotel's location was its best asset during my stay. It's about 150 meters from the Akasaka stop on the Tokyo Metro (Chiyoda Line), which can get you to the cool shopping districts at Meiji-Jingu Mae and Shibuya within minutes (not to mention the awesome Meiji-Jingu Shrine). The hotel staff is friendly and speaks limited English... good for subway directions and basic hotel questions, but clueless when I asked about booking a train ticket to Kyoto. The neighborhood itself is a quiet, clean district with some nice-looking restaurants, but you'll have to go elsewhere for any real nightlife or sightseeing.

Again, if you're traveling on a budget but want something a few steps above a hostel or guesthouse, I'd recommend Akasaka Yoko. And oh yeah, make sure you're pretty skinny.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2010

The Hotel has a good location - close to the Metro Station and many eating places. The rooms and specially the toilets are rather cramped - in fact an obese person might get stuck inside. Amazing space utilization - provides everything required - starting with a toothbrush, bath robes and even a computer with Internet access. The buffet reakfast is spartan but passable. If you are 6' + or over 100 kgs, dont consider staying here. The staff is rather unhelpful and inflexible about check-in and check-out timings - go strictly by the rules.
