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.

LOCATION:
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.

PRICE:
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.

FOOD:
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 = )

HOTEL EXTRAS:
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

Easily accessible from Tokyo Station via the Tokyo metro on the Hibiya line. Near to Shibuya and Roppongi. Rooms are also relatively bigger than the average Tokyo hotel. Only drawback is the 10 min walk uphill to reach the hotel.

Room is small but you really can't expect more in Tokyo. Many restaruants and pubs around the area. Staff is nice but can speak limited English.
Suggest you book the room in the Hotel website because they have unexpected discount all the time.
Internet is free. Manage to find the BBC news in the afternoon but somehow they translate it into Japanese at night ???
Anyway, you would find this hotel very much Japanese style ( I mean the service and the way of doing business). It takes some time getting used to it, but I bat you will love it just like I do.

I was in Tokyo for leisure by myself and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is a relatively new and nice hotel, but I wasn't expecting such a small room. It was a "double" room for single use. I think it had a full size bed and there was not enough room left. I am 5'5 but still it felt way too small for me. The room was overlooking the imperial garden, but the window had frosted glass and did not open. If you decide to stay here, make sure to get a large enough room.

The location is very convenient for all sightseeings.

Stayed here for 3 nights while sightseeing in Tokyo, found this hotel online after our first choice in Shinjuku was sold out. The price was good for Tokyo (averaged about $130 a night with tax) and it was in a good location. While there is a temple across the street this is mainly a business district so not much to see in this area of Akasaka. The good thing is you're a 10min walk to 2 subway lines that can take you to all the major sights in Tokyo.
Was the room small? Yes, but this is Tokyo and space is at a premium so don't be shocked. We didn't spend too much time in our room anyway as we were out all day sightseeing so the size didn't matter. The room was comfortable and clean and that was all we needed. Actually I was surprised that it had a bath tub which my wife used one night. The only problem I had was the limited amount of channels on TV, and all were Japanese. It was actually kinda fun trying to figure out the weather from the news reports. But then I thought what would the average japanese tourist find in most US hotels?
As for eating, we did not use the hotel restaurant. My wife and I usually avoid hotel food, we find it expensive with a limited menu. If you walk down towards the subway station you will find plenty of places to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, some open all night long. We had takoyaki, udon noodles or beef bowl for dinner, usually bringing it back to the room.
This hotel mainly caters to Japanese nationals and businessmen, so it'll take some homework and initiative on your part to make sure you know how to get around and communicate. The staffs English is limited but we found no problem checking in or checking out, which was the only time we interacted with them. For those who are independent enough you shouldn't have a problem, I definitely recommend staying here.

we stayed here for 6 days...like has been said before the rooms are small in comparison to western standards....but was clean and well kept. This hotel was within walking distance to actually 3 stations ...almost any line can be accessed from this hotel. We arrived by limo bus from the airport which I found better for us after a long flight from Canada... we got off at the Excel Hotel and walked to the Hotel Monterey which is only about 4-5 blocks away (right across from the Akaska Mitsuke subway station....so basically the same distance to walk if you take Narita express to Tokyo station and then take the M line to Akasaka Mitsuke subway station) This hotel does not offer any ammenities .....they do speak a little English .......I was not impressed by the breakfast smorg ...very pricy for what you get . If you just want a place to sleep ...this hotel would do just fine. It is a good central location for sightseeing...with access to most subway lines

We stayed here for two nights, and got a great price in an online sale. The room was small but very nicely decorated. The staff spoke some English and were extremely helpful. The hotel is five minutes walk from two subway stations on two different lines, so it's easy to get wherever you want to go in the city. We didn't spend much time looking around the Akasaka area, but I preferred other parts of the city like Shinjuku, where we also stayed at a different hotel.
