“small but nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Typically small Japanese room but perfectly adequate and clean. Nice bathroom and very good staff. My only complaint would be the room although a no-smoking room still had a smell of smoke throughout the room which is probably through the air-conditioning system. We found this was not unusual throughout our Japan holiday as smoking is far more prevalent in Japan than in Australia these days.
This hotel is not well signposted at street level and you could easily walk straight past it. Look up for Hotel Monterey Advertising sign at about 3rd floor level and keep looking in the alcoves if walking in from the subway.

This was my favorite hotel we stayed in while traveling across Japan and South Korea. There are two train station entrances nearby, each within a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. The Marunouchi Line will take you right into Tokyo Station and other popular stops. Right behind the hotel are alleyways of impressive restaurants, shops and bars. Lots of professionals, tourists and younger folk seem to hang out in this area of Akasaka.

We had a room on the ninth floor and a window facing the Sky Tree (Tokyo Tower) and the city. The view was amazing! My friend and I chose a double and it still felt spacious. The mattresses are firm but not too hard (just the way I like them), and the bathroom was clean and stocked with plenty of amenities. The decor in the room, as well as the main lobby, is something out of a European magazine - very elegant, classy and modern. The front desk had employees that spoke English and would introduce any incoming calls to your room. They even helped us with directions and pulled out a English version map of the metro lines and districts.

We were only here for two nights, but we should have stayed here our entire stay in Tokyo. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Japan. It's great for couples, family and travel mates.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in March 2013. The room was quite small - apparently the Japanese standard, but we didn't have much room and barely enough to open up two suitcases. The bed was comfortable, though an extra (softer) pillow would have been appreciated.

Bathroom reasonably sized, clean and all worked. Pyjamas provided in the room!

Free wifi in the hotel.

Location good in that there are lots of restaurants and plenty of bars nearby, and there's a metro station (Akasaka Mitsuke) very close to the hotel. However, there are not many tourist/cultural sites nearby. All are accessible through the metro network, though.

Not cheap for what you get but a nice hotel. Friendly staff, too.

I had an excellent stay at hotel Monterey. The hotel was very conveniently situated for my needs during my stay.
The front desk was very professional and completely managed to make my stay a pleasant one.
The breakfast served at level 2 was to my liking, especially since it covered both Japanese and western style breakfasts.
The hotel was very nicely insulated against traffic sounds etcetera, which made it easy to rest both regarding night sleep and mid-day naps.
The rooms are smallish, but in every way managed to fulfill my needs regarding wardrobe size, bed size etcetera. Also the complete set of utilities, like hairdryer, slippers, TV, alarm clock etcetera was also to my liking. The bathroom was very good and was even beyond my needs in comfort.
So, in short, I will gladly stay at Hotel Monterey next time I visit Tokyo.

I stayed in two hotels in the Akasaka area, and this was by far and away the better both in terms of location (near to Akasaka mitsuke underground station, rather than Akasaka, which has better connections). The hotel is also near to the roads of restaurants and bars in Akasaka, but in a quiet location. It is a few minutes walk from both the station and restaurants.

The decore of the room is good, and although the room is small it wasn't the smallest I've stayed in whilst in Japan! It was reasonable, and the bathroom had a bath in (although it's fairly short, it was better than no bath).

Small well managed hotel with a good location in Akasaka. Rooms are small but tastefully furnished and efficient with good amenities. Bathroom is standard prefab unit-bath style.

Hundreds of restaurants and izakayas within a five minute walk.

Some rooms have a very nice view over the park - something that is rare in Tokyo at this price.

Courteous staff - who unfortunately always try to sell you upgraded room upon checkin.

The staff was great. The toilet was a Japanese smart toilet. The shower had great pressure. It's about a 5-7 minute from the closest subway station. It's located in a businessey area, looked like a financial district. Be aware, if you are taking the Narita Express from the airport and decide to get off at Tokyo station to transfer to the Marunouchi (Red) line to get to the hotel via the Akasaka-Mitsuki stop, the transfer took us 25 minutes (and we walk fast/being New Yorkers ). There are other options that might be easier, check with the hotel. The room was small but a good size and clean
