“Everything that you need, nothing that you don't”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is the sort of the hotel that my husband and I try to find when we go travelling - comfortable but not over-the-top; affordable but not "budget". It was great, the concierge staff (available 24 hours a day) were friendly and spoke limited English (enough for two non-Japanese speakers with a phrasebook to get by!) and the rooms, while small, had everything needed for a one-week stay in Tokyo.

Regarding accessibility, it's an easy walk (say 7 minutes with luggage) from the Hotel Excel Toku (the last stop on the Hotel Limousine Bus from Narita Airport, a 1.5 hour drive away). Super-close to two metro stations (Akasaka metro is a minute's walk away, and Akasaka-Mitsuke just 7 minutes' walk away). The area itself is great for travellers - lots of restaurants (frequented by office-workers) at various price points that are open quite late (ie until even 11pm in some cases). Highly recommend and would return if staying in Tokyo in the future.

That was awesome! Room and bathroom, even corridors are so clean. Staff was very helpful (not only reception, housekeepers too) Very close to metro station (1 min by walking) This hotel is cheaper for this quality in Tokyo. 5/5

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The room is quaint and uses the space well! The bathroom is clean, and your basic toiletries are included. The room also has a clothing press, a safe, and free wifi access. If you are arriving from the airport, transfer on the C-line, and get off at the Akasana station. If you leave out of exit 6 of the subway stop, you will be about a 1-2 minute walk from the hotel. This hotel is great if you are planning on visiting the fish market, as it is very close. Most Tokyo major attractions (Tokyo Sky Tree, Tokyo Dome & Amusement Park, Akihabara, Shibuya crossing, etc) will be about 15-30 mins away from this hotel via public transit. We had no problems navigating the transit, as this hotel is a great price point. There is no breakfast included or room service with this hotel, but there is a coffee shop in the lobby that sells pastries, toast sets, sandwiches, etc. We normally just grabbed a small bite to eat from the seven-eleven nearby or breakfast at the McDonalds on the street. Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: I'm assuming all are pretty nice! Even if you are travelling as a couple, getting a room with tw...

Visited Tokyo a few months ago. By western standards, the rooms is rather small, however, for the price, the location it was a steal. The rooms were small or rather "cozy", yet comfortable and clean and modern. The staff, although they spoke nearly no English, they were very helpful and I even learned a few phrases in Japanese. The hotel I found was centrally located, nestled in a quiet area. Metro station literally steps from hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Whenever I get the chance I try and stay at the Grand Fresa. Akasaka is my all time favourite area in Tokyo, from great selection of small Japanese restaurants in the area, the short walk to Midtown, Roppongi Hills and short train ride to Shibuya. A recommended location for everyone.
The hotel is clean and well maintained with clean rooms and a large bathroom.
Rooms are small as per most Tokyo Hotels, but still you won't regret a stay here.

Room Tip: All Rooms are Great, I prefer the Non Smoking.

Akasaka area is so lovely, with a great selection of nice eating places and other convenient shops. It is also peaceful, clean and picturesque and quite conveniently located without the hustle and bustle of Shibuya and Shinjuku. Grand Fresa has a nice lobby and the front desk staff provided with very good service. I was quite shocked at how teeny the room was as it looked bigger than the picture! However, at least the bathroom was of a decent size and fully stocked with good toiletries and amenities. Our queen size bed had a nice firm pillow, and a pathetic floppy pillow so be sure to request for an additional firm pillow, if not be prepared to wake up to an aching neck the next day.

Akasaka is my favorite area to stay in Tokyo, due to close proximity to both business and fun places, and very convenient access to multiple subway lines and stations (Akasaka, Akasaka-mitsuke, Tameike-sanno). I've stayed in Akasaka close to 10 times, and this hotel is in the running for one of my favorites. Grand Fresa is right next to the #6 exit from Akasaka station (open 6am-10pm), or just an additional 100 ft from exits#5ab. The hotel is right next to a Family Mart, and next to exit 5 is a reasonably large Maruetsu Petit grocery store. Akasaka is a business district, so there are lots of great places for lunch and dinner, and it is quiet in the evenings. My room was on the annex, which had good windows so the room was very quiet at all times. I had a corner room, and it had a small kitchen bar (sink, microwave, hot water pot, coffee), standard desk, full-sized bed large enough for two medium-sized people, and mini-fridge. The hotel gives you two water bottles, a nice clean robe, toiletries, and they have extra nice things like bath salts, tea, and face masks in the lobby. The lobby staff's English can be hit or miss, so if you speak absolutely no Japanese be aware that it may be an occasional inconvenience. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. If the person staffing didn't have good English skills, they would get another staff whose English was better immediately. Free wifi throughout the hotel had good signal strength at all times that I used it. It was not great for Skype, but perfectly adequate for everything else. Very light breakfast in lobby cafe for 600 yen includes tea/juice/coffee and things like toast with egg or croque monsieur. Can't vouch for how universally accessible the hotel is to those who need it. Hot water immediate and very good water pressure. Modern design in the hotel rooms and throughout the hotel. The hotel is fairly new (< ten years old) and everything is very nicely kept up, it could pass for being less than 5 yrs old. I got a good deal online for 8500 yen per night, but a couple months earlier I had been able to book the hotel for 6500 yen a night - which was a total steal. I needed to add on a night, at 10600 yen, which was a great value I felt, considering you can pay 10000 yen/night for a mid-level hotel with mediocre facilities and smaller space in a worse location. Highly recommend for those travelers who like convenient locations, but don't feel like staying in Shibuya or Roppongi. Definitely would stay here again, and feel that even the full price is really good value.

Room Tip: Corner room in annex was both well-sized (for Tokyo) and quiet.
