My mother and I are travelling through Japan for the first time and our first leg was in Tokyo, naturally. We are thrilled that our first stay in this beautiful country was in the b Akasaka.
First off, we got a twin room that was stylishly decorated and well-priced (for Tokyo, no less. Hello??). The price includes a wonderful breakfast in its live-in Italian restaurant. Though the fare did not change the 6 nights that we were there, it was still a delight of Japanese and Western breakfast staples. The closest metro is Akasaka Station on the Chiyoda Line (Exit 3B), and about 5 min walk to the b. The next closest is Akasaka-Mitsuke Station on the Ginza and Marunouchi Lines (about 15 min walk to the b). The walk from Akasaka-Mitsuke is quite the treat though as you will walk through the main thoroughfare of Akasaka. Be prepared to want to give in to visiting all the Izakayas, Japanese fast food joints, wester-style pubs and restaurants on the walk back.
The reception staff, though not exactly Misters and Miss Sunshines-all-the-time, they remain generally helpful and polite as you would expect of the Japanese. The rooms were always cleaned up meticulously. Banzai!
The only real, slight, downside is that it's not easy to find the first time round, and it requires a bit of a walk and a good pair of lungs.
