“Great hotel in brilliant location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Less of a view at the back of the hotel but rooms here are very quiet.

found a relatively affordable bargain rate on the internet.
the hotel is situated in the middle of akasaka area in tokyo, japan.
the room size was slightly tight however you are paying for the location.
many restaurants and bars surround the hotel.
we found a supermarket but a little hard to find if you are a first time traveller to tokyo.
overall, great little stay but look hard for their bargain rates.

This was a great hotel that I stayed in during my visit to Tokyo. It could be a little hard to find, especially if you are not familiar with the area (Akasaka) so make sure you have a handy map to guide you to the hotel. If you decide to take the Airport Limousine Bus service, it drops you off at Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu, and its about a 5-8 min walk from there. The service at the hotel from all the employees was exemplary and they were always eager to assist us with any questions or to help us book tickets for tours, etc. The rooms were a bit small, but as so many before me have said, space is at a premium in Tokyo. The rooms were very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. The hotel is right by the Akasaka-Mitsuke station and this is convenient for traveling to all parts of Tokyo. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes nearby as well as convenience stores, so there are many options available for food. Overall, it was an excellent hotel and I am glad I stayed here during my trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the Akasaka Palace. It is quite an expansive area and you can see the skys...

An excellent hotel with the standard of service you would expect in Japan.
Ideally located near Akasuka Metro station on the Ginza line.
Only negative being the relative expense, however very little can be expected in Tokyo.

Locqtion is very conveniently close to akasaka mitsuke station.Easy when you take the Narita Express to Shibuya.Rooms are not very big but well this is Tokyo. Service is extremely nice, rooms have all that you need and are very quiet. Plenty of restaurants close by at walking distance.

We arrived very early on a Sunday morning and have booked our rooms from Saturday onward to make sure we can just fall into our beds. However, two of our confirmed 4 roomes where not available and the hotel fully booked. It took the receptionist about an hour to find that out while we were standing in the entrance hall. This is not what I call a warm welcome.

Room Clean and staffs are courteous.
Building is showing its ages. Room carpet shows some wearing out.
Convenient located next to train stations.
Clean and descend food services.

In general, I like the stay at the hotel.
