“Good mid-range choice near transport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The hotel is directly opposite the number 7 exit of Akasaka Chiyoda-line metro station, or only 20m or so from the number 6 exit on the same side of the street, so it's convenient for transport. The area isn't a great tourist trap like Roppongi or Shinjuku, which is quite nice in my view, so it's a bit quieter than some places.

What you basically get for a moderate price is quite a small but very clean, modern double room with own bathroom. There is a restaurant downstairs. Given the area, most hotel staff will speak at least reasonable English. There is an OK breakfast which may be free depending on your room/rate plan. The beds are very comfortable, which is my No. 1 consideration!

A few doors away is a convenience store (called 'am/pm') which is OK for getting snacks, beer etc. Also, there are lots of restaurants nearby, and a Tully's coffee shop 5 minutes walk away.

All in all, a good place to stay in Tokyo at a reasonable price.

I recently enjoyed an eight night stay at the Hotel Grand Fresa. The room was spotless and the bedding was very comfortable. The hotel is right next to a Metro stop - the railway is an ideal way ti get around Tokyo with all signs and announcements in English. The staff on front reception were very helpful ( they booked an Airport Bus for me for a pick up at another hotel) and they spoke very good English. This hotel is great value for money and I would definitely stay there again.

Recent business hotel in a very hip neighborhood. Modern decor, clean but the double room we had was small, loyal to Japanese standards.
Right next to akasaka metro, so convenient for check in and dumping your luggage. Lots of nice restaurants nearby, all price ranges and cuisines.

The plus:
- good location and value for money
- nice decor and clean
- English speaking staff and friendly

The minus:
- no wifi in room, available only in lobby. But LAN was available. There were also two slow computers in the lobby for. You to use.
- small for double room, not enough to open two suitcases at the same time.

Overall a very recommendable hotel!

The rooms are small, the hotel doesn't have many amenities, but if you are traveling on your own, this is a great hotel. Right across from one of the subway exits, it is clean, very friendly, and very comfortable. Given that it cost 50% more than a hostel when I stayed, it is a nice alternative if you want a private room.
The bed is a bit softer than the Japanese standard, and there are very good curtains, making for a very restful night's sleep. And the alarm clock system is one of the most intuitive I have ever seen! The view, however, isn't particularly good. But it was all the more incentive to go out and explore Tokyo.
The location is good. Granted, you may need to take the subway a lot, but it is a pleasant 30 minute walk to Tokyo rail station, 25 minute walk to the palace, and a 15 minute walk to Roppongi. There aren't a ton of cheap places to eat, but between convenience stores and a bit of walking, you can find something.
A couple on good terms could manage the room well, but if you need space, then this isn't the place for you.

Nice hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Not necessarily in the centre of action, but close to many great areas.

The hotel is a short walk from the metro station. However, that metro line is not very convenient. Going to most places requires 2 or more transfers. The room is itself is quite small. The bed very comfy. The window only has a opaque shade, no privacy curtains (lace type curtain which would allow light to enter). It's either full on sunlight or none at all. I was on a high floor (7th), but it was facing another towering office building, not much privacy.
