“Excellent location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The best thing about this hotel is that it's very near 2 metro stations (2-5 min walk) which gives you plenty of option to go to lots of places in Tokyo. It's really an excellent location! 7-11 was literally just downstairs and it's very convenient to grab an early breakfast or late supper. A fleet of taxi are almost always ready downstairs or across the road, so if you prefer taxi, you shouldn't have problems at all.

We stayed as a family of 5 and booked 2 moderate double rooms. Will not recommend this to people coz it's pretty cramped to squeeze 3 people in a queen bed, unless you're going to bring your own sleeping bag (pls check with the hotel beforehand, sometimes they have extra bed).

On our first night, the air-cond was not cold and we slept without blanket, but the subsequent 3 nights were fine. No cigarette smell and everything is quite clean. The bathroom is rather small but well equipped with large bottles of soap, shampoo and conditioner, which are diligently replenished. Can't compare this to other hotels in Tokyo but I will definitely consider staying here again the next time I come.

Room Tip: Moderate double room (or was it deluxe double room) are located higher up in the building, but the m...

We stayed there for 2 night and the hotel is located conveniently at akasaka metro station. We got dropped off from the airport directly to the hotel and it cost is 3000 yen per person but still considered reasonable as we had so many luggages.
Hotel room is spacious compared to other hotels in tokyo, queen size bed and the shower was amazing.
The highlight was the nespresso machine in the room and complementary pods in the room.

The location is very convenient as it is the interchange to different lines such as tokyo station, shinjuku, shibuya and the metro station is right opposite to the hotel.
Will definitely stay there again if I ever visit tokyo in the near future.

The best part about the Akasaka Excel Hotel is for sure that it is literally across the street from the Akasaka-mitsuke station, which directly connects to all the major stops in Tokyo that you may want to visit: Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ginza, Tokyo Station, Ueno, Asakusa, etc.

The hotel itself is clean and the staff are friendly. Of course, the rooms are small but it is to be expected if you go to Tokyo. We stayed in the standard room, though I saw some of the higher grade rooms and they a lot more spacious. The amenities are great - big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash as well as hairbrush, toothbrush, razor, etc.

There is a huge 711 on the ground floor!

The only downside I would say was that they couldn't give us a non-smoking room, though honestly it wasn't a huge problem even though I hate second hand smoke. We heard some 'noises' from neighboring guests in the evening one night - good for them I guess. We just drowned them out with the TV.

The location of the hotel is a definite plus on any scale, you have 2 Metro Stations and a lot of bar/restaurants nearby like Hooters :D, which is conveniently located right next to the hotel.

We booked a semi-double room, the rooms were clean and small but good enough as we spent most of our time roaming around Tokyo. The decorations in the room were simple but we had a good view watching the sun rise.

The hotel staffs were very helpful and friendly.

This place definitely caters more to business travelers but for anyone else, this place is good since the hotel's location is very convenient.

Worth the cost!!!! Really great location Cross the street and your in the heart of Akasaka,Tokyo.. Superb location for business and leisure travellers, easy access to market and great shopping places like shinjuku,Ginza n much more thru metro,bus and taxi...located just nearby the Business district and nice pubs n restaurants.... hotel's Restaurants are also superb...Good healthy multi cuisine breakfast but having least options for vegetarians. If you are a non vegetarian, have lots of great options....Breakfast - they have everything - power up! Staff,They are very, very polite and and warm. English - some of the staff speak English or at least a little, even if they do not speak it, they will steer you towards someone that does... Rooms are well equiped with all amenities and nobody is required to carry anything from the toiletries from home. Simply the good and economical property to stay in the heart of Japan.

I stayed here for four nights in total. A double room comes in a range of formats, the best are very good indeed, the cheapest are cramped, the furniture worn and the worse for a great deal of wear. The real drawback though to this hotel is breakfast. Every single guest has to form an orderly queue and this at times can be as long as the width of the hotel. On arriving at the front of the queue, which can take up to twenty minutes, one is escorted to a table then abandoned to work out how to join the rugby scrum for breakfast. On a busy day it is chaotic and very un Japanese as it is badly organised. There are better hotels in Tokyo.

Room Tip: Tokyo is expensive but I would not recommend staying in this hotel for more than one night.
