This establishment is located next to the Imperial Palace, offers great studios and apartments. Pricewise very interesting, as the rooms are much bigger than what you would get for the same price in a "regular" hotel in Tokyo. Our studio, 712, was around 35 square meters, has a living room and bedroom, separated by a glass wall, bed was very... More

My family stayed at Kitano Arms at the recommendation of Tokyo friends last week. The location is very central (less than Y1,600 from Tokyo Station) and has spacious rooms for a reasonable price. It is convenient to four subway lines at Nagatacho/Akasakamitsuke. The front desk staff were very kind and accommodating too. Free and secure wifi a bonus and the... More

This hotel is located in a quiet part of Asakasa. It is quiet because it is located near the Supreme Court, The Emperor's Palace and Parliament House, yet it is just 10 minutes walk to Tokyu Plaza and restaurants. The subway is two minutes walk, and connects you to all of Tokyo's attractions. It's great for a short or longer... More

We stayed in a king bed apartment which was very spacious and comfortable. Excellent location close to resturants shops trains and imperial palace. Very clean rooms and staff were superb, all spoke very good english. 7eleven just a few meters away and traffic not too noisy on 8th floor. Definately stay here again. Mostly business guests not too many tourists.... More

i went to Japan last year and stayed in a tiny, expensive box room in Shinjuku (like so many others). Kitano Arms was brilliant - huge room, finished nicely, great staff, location was great (i was there for work in Akasaka). it's much quieter than Shinjuku of course. not many eating options at your doorstep. but you've got 4 subway...

Good location as in Tokyo's best area. little far from metro station. used mostly taxis. Large spacious apt. This is a residence u would like to stay if you're long term in tokyo and want to avoid renting a place.

Chose Kitano Arms for the final week of a 4 1/2 week holiday in Japan. After moving from one city to another every 3 to 5 days the apartment was a relaxing "home" to finish off. It is centrally located to be able to do day trips and has all the restaurants nearby. We like to walk through the streets... More

We loved this hotel and would recommend to first time travellers to Japan. The Nagatacho station is right outside which connects easily to the JR lines. 7/11 and café right outside which will cater for your coffee/breakfast/drink and snack requirements. The 7/11 has fresh takeaway meals (japan style) delivered each day along with a great selection of cakes. Our room... More

The Kitano Arms is very well located, right by Nagatacho Metro station and close to convenience stores and a cafe. There are plenty of restaurants in Akasaka, a short walk away. The Edo palace and Ginza are a pleasant walk away, probably about half an hour non-stop but we spent a very enjoyable morning walking first to the palace and... More

The hotel has very spacious apartment rooms. The addition of a fridge and stove gives you the flexibility of making your own breakfast, since it is not included in the booking. There are two nearby metro stops that put you within 20 minutes of major parts of Tokyo (Shinjuku, Tokyo station, Ginza, etc.). Overall, a very good hotel.

Staying in Akasaka / Roppongi

Neighborhood Profile
Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
