“Typcial Japanese hotel but air conditioning is terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This hotel (part of a chain) tries to portray itself as a type of British colonial styled hotel. However, when you get to the rooms they are the small and typical Japan style.

The worst part was that the air conditioning in my room would cut out spontaneously in the middle of the night and the room would become unbearably warm.

The rooms were clean and the amenities in the bathroom adequate.

Both the wired internet and WiFi worked well.

The breakfast was standard without much variation and buffet style though the chocolate croissants were quite nice.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for a business trip and the hotel was selected by the Japanese business partners. The staff was very helpful and friendly as it is normal un Japan. They served european and Japanese breakfast, both quite good. The room was clean and fully equipped with water cooker and free Internet. I could get an iron calling the front desk. This they understood, otherwise the English was limited. The rooms were very small, opening mz suitcase I couldn't walk in the room anymore. There is an airport limo 10min walking distance away.
The rooms where not expensive at all, so I can recommend it.

Stayed at this hotel in February 2012 due to its close proximity to the Canadian embassy. The area around the hotel is very nice and the subway is just a short walk down the street. Room was clean and comfortable, with TV and internet connection. Taxi from airport to hotel was pricey.

I stayed here for week on a business trip. The rooms are compact but clean and tidy. Pyjamas and slippers are provided - I didn't try the former, and the latter were far too small for my huge European feet. I've never seen a toilet with a control panel before.

The metro is only 5 minutes walk away, but if you need to be in Akasaka, this would be a good choice of hotel.

Rooms are tiny but exceptionally clean and quiet. Close to subway and airport limo service. Staff have limited English but very accommodating and gracious. Lovely little hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Easy to find, for located right in front of the huge Toyokawa Inari Shrine and next to Akasaka Police Station, on a main street. Though you need to walk nearly for 5 minutes from Akasaka Metro Station (Chiyoda Line and Marunouchi Line).
Rooms are rather small, so if you prefer to have more space, you should choose a superior room, and not a standard one, which will make a large difference (as I saw both).
Breakfast is provided both in Japanese and Western style, in a cozy, not so big banquet room.
I love the neighborhood of Akasaka, for being much quieter and settled than Shinjuku or Shibuya.
Amenities are good enough, but I prefer bath towels to be thicker and softer.
