4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

If you’re a shopaholic (like us), Akasaka Yoko Hotel is the right pick. It is within walking distance to Tokyo Midtown Plaza - an ultra modern mall that houses trendsetting boutiques & upscale outlets (such as Dean & DeLuca & Maison Kayser).
The hotel is also near a train station wherein for a merely 20-minute ride you’ll find yourself in the midst of Shibuya – taking souvenir photo/selfie with Hachikō, walking across its famous crossing & conquering all of its shopping malls, cafes, restaurants & entertainment.
Like most hotel rooms in Japan, ours is undersized. Given that we will only utilize it for sleeping & other personal matters, it was A-OK. Its saving grace was the bathroom where the toilet seat is packed with buttons. Nonetheless, it’s not rocket science to figure out which is for what.
The selection on the breakfast buffet was similar each morning but it was substantial. We found the buttered pastries irresistible and that’s what we had every day together with a hot cuppa plus other choices, of course.
Since Wi-Fi is only available at the lobby, this gives us the opportunity to do other tasks like visiting the nearby convenient store for last-minute buys.
The staffs are friendly and although they have limited knowledge of the English language we were able to exchange a few words. One time, sensing that it was drizzling, without asking they offered brollies on our way out. Quite impressive!

Location is good, near the Akasaka station (walk about 5-6min). The room is small but clean. Hotel is quiet in night so we have nice sleep. Hotel staffs are friendly and nice, they also have fluent English. Breakfast is buffet, it's tasty.

It's a basic hotel but it's quiet, clean, good for a week stay with convenience stores and shops nearby. Location of this business hotel is good. Bathroom is very small. No wifi in the room except lobby area.

I stayed for just one night since it was my last night in Japan and I wanted to enjoy night life at Roppongi.The bathroom, as already said by others reviewers is small even for short person like me,but the location is very good and their price
reasonable.

This is a very typical Japanese business hotel - small, clean room with basic needs. There was just enough space for both our big suitcases but the bed and bathroom were both clean.
Downstairs they have a counter with free toiletries and there is also a fridge where you can get a free bottle of water each day. The staff spoke minimal English but it was enough for us. The only downside was that they only had LAN cables for laptops - we didn't have a laptop and the only place with free wifi for our phones was in the lobby.
The hotel itself is a few minutes walk down the road to the Akasaka train station, and there are several convenience stores nearby, or if you're hungry there's also Matsuya (beef bowl) which is open 24hrs. The Akasaka area, while considered at the high-end of town, is convenient to travel to other locations. The hotel is also about 15 minutes walk to Roppongi (or a 2 minute cab ride) so you don't need to worry about catching the last train home if you stay out late.
Since we were out the whole day and out late at night, we only needed a place to have a comfortable sleep and shower and this was hotel was fine.

Location is not bad with tons of convenience stores nearby. Room is cleaned up before I return every night. Although the closest station closes at 10p.m., the next one is not too far away. Overall it's a pretty good stay.

Stayed 3 nights. Never saw smaller room or even smaller bathroom. Cant even turn around between sink & toilet. In room no room for laguage.
Wi-fi only in reception in smoking area, very disappointing.
Hotel staff cant speak much of an english & not willing to help woth directions as they cant understand or explain.
The only good thing is location, just minutes asay from busy with restaurants & bars Roppongi area.
