Arrived in Tokyo with no Hotel Reservations, stayed at the Holiday inn @ The airport for first night (Great Idea, see review) Sheraton Miyako for two nights (had to move because they were sold out) , Booked this online night before stay on Hotels.com, was not first choice. Everything else seemed to be sold out or not available for our full stay there......COULD NOT ASK FOR MUCH MORE........
Over all this is a BUSINESS hotel, but much nicer. The inside looks like a trendy NYC or Chicago Trendy Hotel. There is not much to it, lobby and sitting area, beautiful dining room. Rooms were a bit small (but that is expected in Japan, compared to american hotel rooms). Does not Look like hotel from outside. Most of staff does not speak English, I think that we were the Only Americans in the hotel - Kind of Nice.
This hotel has the perfect location. 3 min walk to some great late night local places. One which was on the travel channel not too long ago. 3 Blocks to Tokyo metro (subway), Across the street from Temple that some of the rooms have a beautiful view of. Could Not ask for a better pick of location for hotel.
Great for Price, Because of location it save so much money on Taxi....Much better Location Then Sheraton Miyako. We paid $119 american including breakfast - I think that was really under priced for the value for the Hotel (based on location, money save by being so close to Train and dining, service.
Only ate breakfast in the hotel. It is a mixture of traditional American & Traditional Japanese breakfast food (Mainly Japanese). For the people not willing to eat Japanese food (dont know why you came to Japan then??????) you are very lucky MCD's one block away...Starbucks 1 block away - but Please try to eat locally when you travel = )
Not much in this area. Not sure if they had pool or gym. You can buy 2 day Tokyo Metro from Front Desk CHEAPER THEN BUYING AT TRAIN. Bathroom is small. Beds are nice. View is great. Free English or Japanese Newspaper every day hanging on door. Very Clean. Perfect Location.
If you are LOOKING FOR FULL SERVICE HOTEL - This is NOT THE PLACE. Akasaka IS a business hotel.....not good for Kids or Families, but perfect if you are traveling with adults and you are planing on doing walking tours of Tokyo. From hotel you can get to almost every downtown site with a 5 to ten min train. The Front Desk will help you getting to the train the first time and give you what routes to take
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel recreates the style of a London townhouse, combining classical elegance with modern practicality, ensuring the building blends in well with the plush surroundings of Aoyama-dori. In addition, the stylish grey and white facade, mixed with soft tones of limestone, provide a splendid contrast to the greenery around Akasaka. Meanwhile, the central location means that for business and leisure travellers alike, it is extremely convenient for access to the major hubs of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Tokyo Station. Please come and enjoy a relaxing and leisurely stay in the midst of the city. ... more less
