“A spacious room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Can you find that large room in Tokyo?

I have stayed in a double room for a night.
This room is quite spacious by Japanese standards.
The room is very clean, and modern.
There is a coffee maker, a big TV, a pair of slippers, a bathtub, and a massage chair.
About Wi-Fi access, you have to borrow it at the reception. (It's free).

The location is at the centre of the Tokyo, also it is very quiet and safety at night.
It takes only 2 minutes from the Akasaka Station of the Tokyo Metro Line.
I recommend you this hotel, because mostly Japanese hotel rooms are very small.

At the end of a backpacking trip spent mostly in hostels, I decided to treat myself to a stay in a real hotel, knowing space comes at a premium in Japan. But for an incredibly good price, this hotel spares no convenience. I wasn't disappointed by the size or amenities of the room, and the location is wonderful. Close to Shibuya, Harajuku, the Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower and Roppongi, and nestled in its own entertainment district, Akasaka is a wonderful jumping off point for exploring the east side of Tokyo (or the whole city, if you don't mind trains). The hotel staff were kind and patient with my broken and basic Japanese, the checkout time is noon, and the room was totally fantastic. I'd stay here again in a moment!

My husband, two college-age children, and I had a very enjoyable stay in two adjacent rooms here. The rooms are huge and light (we were on an upper floor), including room for a desk, table, and balcony. Wifi is free--but ask for a router for each computer as the connection does not reach very far. The twin beds are larger than in the U.S. (almost full-size), and nice and firm--slept great. We did not initially pay for the included breakfast, but it's a really nice western style breakfast with fruit, french toast, croissants, juices, green salad, rice, cappucino, etc., and we ate there every morning. The entire staff speaks English; all were very pleasant and willing to help. They even lent us an adapter when we forgot ours (Japan uses the same two-prong outlets as in the U.S., but if your computer or appliance has a third prong, it will not fit into the outlet). Location is right outside Exit 2 of the Akasaka stop, and a short (5-minute) walk from the Tameike-Sanno stop. Also, there is a Citibank branch and ATM a 7-minute walk from the hotel, as well as quite a few restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity, although it is not walking distance to most of what you'll want to see. Would definitely stay here again.and recommend highly.

Spotless, VERY spacious room with plenty of space with shelf, cupboards and wardrobes.
The bed was super comfortable – hard type that you don’t sink in to! The wireless as well as cabled internet was free – however it appeared only one device could be connected. The location was great as well – only a couple of minutes walk from Akasaka subway station. A small sink with a little fridge and a microwave was a little bonus. Coffee bags were nice touch.
All in all, it was nice hotel – would recommend especially to people who need to stay long term in the middle of Tokyo!

We were two couples, one in a double and one in a twin. Both rooms were spacious (Huge in Japan terms) and lovely. The twin also had a small kitchen. Location is good, close to two train stations (not JR) and to restaurants and supermarket.

I chose this hotel for its location and its room size. It is only a minute from Akasaka station on Chiyoda Line and six or so minutes from
Tameike Sanno station and a few more minutes from Akasakamitsuke on Ginza line which is the oldest line and runs through many major areas in the central part of the city, Shibuya, Omotesando (Harajuku), Hibiya (Imperial Palace near by), Tokyo, Ginza (Tsukiji near by) Nihonbashi, Kanda (Akihabara), Ueno and Asakusa. There are two supermarkets (one of them stays open twenty four hours), many reasonably priced restaurants, Burger King, McDonald's and a small park within a few minutes of walk. The hotel has seventy two rooms, I believe. The lobby is not large but all the front desk staff spoke good English and they were courteous, helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome. The room we had is the smallest they offer but is very spacious with a queen size bed, a sofa and a coffee table, a large TV, a desk and a chair with a serving set for instant coffee and tea. As you go in there is a space to take off shoes and change to slippers as customary done in Japan. This space has a built in cabinet to keep shoes and umbrellas from which I guessed the hotel must've been built as apartments originally. The bathroom is large with a spacious counter, a nice size tub and a modern washlet toilet. There is also a small veranda although the view from our room was not great. The air/heat control worked very well.
There is an Italian restaurant Osteria Peppo's in the same building. Their menu is limited but what we had was excellent, from what I understand, very authentic to the owner's native land. Although we did not try they also serve breakfast for which coupon you can get at the hotel.
The only negative thing we thought was that the room needed more lighting for its size. The room seemed a bit dark..
We thank all the people who work there including room cleaning members for making our three-day stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I am planning to make reservations here for my next trip to Tokyo with my son and his family in the fall.

Room Tip: It may have better room light and a better view on higher floor.

Rooms are very spacious for two of us plus our daughter. Our 6-year-old daughter could stay for free which is rare in hotels in Japan in this price range where most of them charge on a per-person basis for anyone aged 6 and above. Her breakfast was not free though. My husband appreciated the massage chair. TV channels were mostly Japanese but we did not go there to watch TV, so we did not mind. Ventilation in the bathroom could be improved. It often smelled damp and humid. We were on the 8th floor but there was absolutely no view. Other buildings were in front of our window and balcony and as a result not much natural sunlight came through to the room. So request a room on the high floor would be my suggestion. We regularly used Akasaka metro station (1-minute walk) and Tameikesanno station (5-minute walk). Wifi is free and a router would be provided upon request. There are a few mini-marts and supermarkets nearby. Lots of restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. Overall we were happy with our choice of the hotel.

Room Tip: Request for a room on the high floor, facing outside (I think that's the east side).
