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!
