“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

This hotel is small enough to provide personalized service and in a great location, just up the hill from Akasaka Surcus, where there are events and entertainment most weekends. First time there, it can be a little tricky to get to, but once we got our bearings we found it handy to lots of reasonably priced restaurants and not far from Roppongi with its nightlife and upmarket restaurants. The staff were very helpful, and while all spoke English, some were better than others. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. The hotel has an Italian restaurant attached to it where guests can have a buffet breakfast or meals at other times of the day. It didn't look all that exciting so we didn't bother.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2009

We stayed in B Akasaka for four nights after we read nice reviews, and overall we were quite satisfied with the hotel.

The positive sides: 1) Nice and clean room 2) Free coffee at reception (and does not taste bad either) 3) Free internet (we also could have free wifi in room, which is very rare for Japan, but we are not entirely sure if this is a wifi of the hotel). 4) Friendly staff with relatively good English. My friend was a bit ill and they tried to help by providing humidifier and thermometer. 5) We got a good rate through expedia 6) Lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby

Negative sides: 1) The bathroom was seperated from the room with a glass wall, so you have to make sure that you are comfortable with your accompanion. Also if you turn on the light of the bathroom, the bedroom will also be lit (as the glass screen is transparent at top) 2) No wardrobe, so this may not be suitable for people who travel with haute couture. All you have is hanging rails. 3) No English TV, there is CNN but dubbed in Japanese 4) Location is not so great. The Akasaka metro station is close, but we did not find this metro line very useful as it is not very well connected with areas/lines where tourist attractions are situated. Also the path from Akasaka station to hotel is a bid odd, and you need the climb stairs and go around buildings. There is however a lift on the corner of the street, but it does not work all the time.
