Tokyo Avanshell and Akasaka
I chose this hotel as it was convenient for visiting a friend living in Mid-town Residences nearby.
It was really reasonably priced at Y13700 per night and a very very big room. It was comfortable and relaxing as the area it is in is so quiet.
We had breakfast included but it was a rather lacklustre affair, like you would make at home either Japanese or Western style. It was very cheap. At night the restaurant is an Italian one, but it was empty as we went past with no atmosphere and we quickly found cheaper pizza and better looking place up through the laneway in Akasaka
The staff were very helpful and even though I spoke with them in Japanese, they are very competent speakers of English.
The hotel was incredibly convenient in other ways.
Just beside the hotel along a pleasant walkway of 50m or so takes you out onto a convenient local area. In front of the massive Biz Tower is a piazza of great cafes and drinking spots, very sophisticated. We went to B&R sat out on the terrace. Very relaxing, slow wervisce though.
There are numerous Massage therapy and Back specialists ( all that sitting in seats all day for poor salary man) and some great Izekaya, Chinese and other Japanese restaurants.
Underneath Biz Tower is a plethora of shops and restaurants that we didnt even see.
Hiie Ginja a beautiful shrine, is nearby walk and incredible modern buildings surrounding it make it very interesting. We are not in Kyoto now!
We went to Roppongi Hills to the fabulous 52nd storey Mori Museum 10 in ride by taxi or quicker trainride.
Its a 1 minute walk from The Akasaka station on the Chiyoda line.
