Akasaka is a great neighborhood- A quiet haven in greater Tokyo. There are some good peaceful walks that don't take you too far from the hotel. The Akasaka Imperial Palace was about a 15-20 minute walk, and the parks around it are nice.
Chiyoda line is actually very convenient, probably moreso than some of the other reviews suggest. Just two stops down is Meiji-Jingumae/Harajuku. Here you can explore the Meiji Shrine. Also, that stop is convenient for a 100 Yen Daiso store in Harajuku- Awesome for souvenirs.
The room itself was actually a little bit larger that we expected- About the size of a Microtel room in the US. We have stayed in smaller rooms. Wired Internet was also good. We were watching an online video stream at 200Kbps without any buffering.
A few gripes: We were only provided two pillows- and one was paper-thin. The plumbing for the shower wasn't the best. The hot water knob seemed to be a little loose, so the dial would actually vibrate and turn during a shower, making the temperature fluctuate some. And of course- the $10 to wash and dry one load of laundry is a bit steep.
Overall, a good clean property- just don't expect fancy. I would stay again if I was on a fairly tight budget.
