Very good location, nice breakfast. The room was not big but for us was good enough. We could get from the hotel to every place we wanted as the Tube was just around the corner. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

My stay was very nice. This hotel was immaculate! The rooms are small, no closet or chest of drawers. They offer a rack on the wall to hang your clothes and three open shelves. After the initial shock of the size of the room you somehow get used to it after a day or so. They have awesome bathrooms. Really... More

Typical tiny Japanese rooms - but quite expensive for what it is. No real facilities to offer, tiny little bathroom. Good enough if you're just looking for a bed at night. would not recommend the twin rooms, westerners might find it a little too close for comfort. Location is pretty good, not too far to walk to the closest metro.

The rooms are small, but impossibly clean. The walk down to the Akasaka Sacas & TBS is wonderful! Breakfast is unusual, varied, and delicious! Great neighborhood with lots to see & plenty of shopping.

The hotel is located in Tokyo's business district, not far from the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) and the Akasaka subway stop on the Chyioba line (got to love the Tokyo subway system). This is probably the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in. No closets and it was a tight fit for 2 people. However, it is a good bargain,... More

The hotel is in a convenient location, accessible to 3 subway stations (akasaka, akasaka-mitsuke and though further, roppongi) but there are lots of slopes nearby.

The hotel is relatively close to two different subway stations. It is also close to many minimarts. The staff were friendly. The rooms were pretty good.
