I did not know what to expect with this hotel as I did not do a lot of research and started to wonder if I had made a mistake booking a hotel called 'the b'. Did B mean second class? Should I have perhaps booked 'the a'? It turned out with this chain 'the b' stands for bed, breakfast, balance... More

I stayed at the B for a full week during the end of May. I don't go on vacation to lounge around hotel rooms -- the only thing I do in the hotel is sleep.

We stayed at the B Hotel for the first 2 nights in Tokyo. Had a very comfortable stay and the adjoining restaurant provided the Japanese/western breakfast (a buffet with a good variety of dishes) as well as other meals if desired (indoor and outdoor seating).

I confirm the other reviews. The location is excellent. Be sure to read the directions from the Chiyoda subway line, Akasaka exit 3b and locate the elevator on the outside of the curving sidewalk after you pass the large TBS building. It is behind a partial concrete wall and will save you dragging your luggage up the steep stairs at... More

Hotel was very clean and comfortable, although lack of storage for clothes. Good location, close to subway, restaurants and cafes. Shops and Culture all around. Nothing negative worth mentioning. Highly recomended.
