The hotel offers a great location to explore Tokyo, it is less than 5 minutes from the Akasaka station, and walking distance from the Roppongi Hills (long walk). The area is nice with lot of bars and restaurants, and feels very safe. The rooms are tiny-it must be the tiniest room that I have ever stayed in, but very well...

Apart from the size, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Good shower! My kids found the room a bit hot but were unable to control the air-con. Breakfast was...

Looking for a nice room with a view? Centrally located with friendly staff? You found it here in Akasaka-Tokyo, Japan. Room was bigger than the normal Japanese rooms I've been in before. Good tasting free coffee in the lobby and an Italian restaurant right outside the front door. Short walk to the Tokyo Metro station and shops.

Good hotel is you want to avoid the hordes of tourists and reasonable rates. Rooms are rather compact, but clean and well-maintained. Nearest subway station - Mitsutake - is not too far, but downhill...so better take a taxi.
