We were here for three days while exploring the city. The rooms are very typical of business type hotels, VERY small. The bathroom size is large however. In comparison. I was not happy about the service. There were a couple of different instances. It is a good location. Just a min to the subway. There are restaurants within walking distance but it is not a very happening, it is casual which is nice.
My biggest complaint is not the area but the help!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

In mid Jan 2013 we stayed at Grand Fresa Hotel in Akasaka Tokyo.

We were there for 6 days and had a standard double room plus a triple room for our three children. As you would expect of Japanese hotels, the rooms are small by western standards but as long as you keep your stuff tidy they are plenty big enough. The rooms we had were western style and the beds were very comfortable. My 18 year old son found the bed a bit short for him but he is 6 feet tall. Bathrooms were small but practical and everything is very clean.

The rooms appeared to be very quite but too our surprise the whole city was incredibly quite anyway so the rooms don't need any special sound proofing. There are only 3 rooms on each floor of the second building where we were (and we had 2 of them)) so noise from other guests was also not a problem.

The location is great for restaurants. There are more than you could possible need and all in walking distance. If this is your first time in Japan there is an all chicken restaurant across the road called "Yaki Tori" that is a great introduction to the Japanese restaurant routine with one staff member who speaks excellent English and is happy to explain how everything is done.
The hotel's breakfast options looked to be over priced compared to local offerings outside so we didn't use the hotel option for breakfast.

The hotel is almost on top of the C06 subway station so transport is easy. Although you do need to change lines a few times to get to some of the popular tourist sites.
We used Bookings.com to book our rooms and it seemed good value to us although this was our first time in Tokyo so we don't have much to compare it to.

Overall we were very happy with our experience at Grand Fresa Hotel Akasaka.

Room Tip: Street front rooms have a more interesting view

The Grand Fresa is very well located on a main street in Akasaka, walking distance to Midtown, Roppongi Hills and just two minutes from Akasaka underground station.

The rooms are quite small, very small actually with very little space for moving around freely but the bathroom is excellent and the hotel is very generous with all amenities, bathrobes, slippers, tea, coffee,.... which makes the stay more comfortable.

The hotel staff were very friendly and overall stay of five days was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend it.

We stayed at Hotel Grand Fresa December 2012/January 2013. Although the room was small it was clean and staff helpful. Akasaka area is great area to stay. We walked to Imperial Palace, Tokyo Station and Tokyo Tower and underground access across the road from hotel which is very convenient.

Stayed at the Hotel Grand Fresa Akasaka last April and had a great stay here. The staff was super friendly and spoke good English. The rooms are fairly smaller compared to Western standards but this is Tokyo so space is a commodity regardless of where you go. I was traveling solo with a backpack so space was not an issue however if a couple were to be traveling with large suitcases it would be challenging to open both suitcases at the same time. The hotel itself is in a great location as other reviewers have posted. It is in the Akasaka neighborhood which is a very quiet area of Tokyo with lots of restaurants, local cafes, and a 7-11 across the street in the area. Their is only wired internet connection in the room and if you did not bring a laptop you can rent one from the front desk for a small fee. The hotel is right beside the Akasaka station which is really convenient as its a few stops from Harajuku om the JR Yamonte line. Overall I had a great experience at this hotel and will stay here again when I visit Tokyo.
