We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. Choosing a hotel in central Tokyo can be a daunting task but we felt that we made a good choice with this hotel. It is located just a short, slightly uphill walk from Akasaka metro station. We had booked a standard double room but on arrival were offered the oportunity to upgrade to a queen size bed for a small extra cost. That was one of the best decisions we made. The room was still small but we had enough room for two medium sized suitcases and ourselves. I wouldn't have wanted to be in a smaller room. We were at the back of the hotel overlooking some appartments and a car park. It was very quiet at night as, unlike most large cities, people actually seem to sleep in Tokyo! The surrounding area is lively and there are several convenience stores and coffee shops nearby. Early Friday evening and the streets are full of people and there is some kind of parade taking place in one of the side streets which are lined with bars and restaurants. Absolutely brilliant. Breakfast at the hotel is the usual buffet style set up. We were there for two breakfasts. The first morning it was fine, plenty of everything. On the second morning, there were a lot of people wanting breakfast and the service was stretched to the limit. The staff were having difficulty keeping the rapidly emptying dishes replenished and several times we went to find an item and the dish or plate was empty. The scallop curry dish was not refilled in time for my husband to try it so we gave up waiting and he went away feeling a bit cheated! However, service was generally excellent with the high standards we came to expect in Japan. The staff,even with limited English spoken, were very helpful and polite and we would have no reservations about using this hotel again. I just hope I get the chance to stay in Hotel Monterey again.

In addition, the stylish grey and white facade, mixed with soft tones of limestone, provide a splendid contrast to the greenery around Akasaka. Meanwhile, the central location means that for business and leisure travellers alike, it is extremely convenient for access to the major hubs of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Tokyo Station.
