Was checking into my hotel while on a business trip from Osaka and saw these signs segregating foreigners only elevators and Japanese only elevators. This made my trip very upsetting and when confronting them about it, they were more useless than the stuff that comes out of my dog's rear end!
This hotel sees reason to segregate their “foreign” guests and Japanese guests as a safety measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Last I checked the virus doesn’t discriminate however this hotel asks that foreigners use one elevator and Japanese another. This is not a translation error or a minor hiccup. This is racism plain and simple. They clearly do not want foreigner business and patronage. Let’s do them a favor a not use this hotel chain at all.
This is located 1 minute from Akasaka mitsuke subway station and a few minutes from Nagata cho subway station. There are more than several restaurants in the hotel and hundreds within several minutes walk. There is an air purifier in each room and free bottled water. This is midsized hotel and mid range priced. It is a great location fir a jogger to explore Tokyo.
My son and I stayed here for one night during the Rugby World Cup. The previous night we were at the Hilton Odaiba. We had dinner with friends at the Ninja Restaurant next door to the Akasaka Excel so decided to stay here. It is your typical Japanese hotel. We arrived an hour before check-in but couldn't go to our room (normal in Japan). We came back and had to queue for some time as there was only one staff member on the desk. This was not your usual Japanese service. The room was small but fine. The beds were very comfortable and there were some nice shower amenities. The window was only single glaze but there was very little traffic outside at night so noise wasn't a problem. We got some breakfast at the 7-11 in the basement of the hotel. This hotel was fine for a night.…
This comfortable hotel is conveniently located in downtownTokyo, which makes it easily accessible for tourists who want to be in the center of everything. This hotel looks rather like every other hotel (there's not a lot of "unique traits"), but it's still nicely designed and the staff are pleasant and helpful. The rooms have sufficient space for the standard tourist's needs, and the shower in particular was fantastic (not a universal thing for hotels). We had a Nespresso machine in our room.
Whilst there wasn’t much soul to this hotel & the reception staff seemed a little robotic... the location is good (sits on top of the GINZA line). We could run in the park behind the hotel and to The Imperial Palace. One downside (As with many hotels in winter) was the room heater (fixed thermostat) But... fortunately we could open the window for some cooler “Air-conditioning”.
I’ve travelled to Tokyo many times and lived here. In February 2020 we stayed with kids in 20s and grandma. Couldn’t have picked a better location- the hotel is on top of a station with a bunch of subway lines so few train changes required & a only a couple of stops to everything. No long underground treks to get to the platform so easy for grandma. In-room Nespresso machines & a box of weetbix from home meant we could pace ourselves in the morning. Good sized rooms, great service, great showers. Great restaurants across the road & in hotel.
Location: This is the hotel from where nothing is very far. Train station is less than 5 minutes walk. Roopongi, Shinzuku, Ginza, Shibya all can be reached in 20 Minutes or so. You get a direct bus to hotel to/from Airport and that's the easiest way to reach hotel. Room: I used 19 sq m room and that was enough for a single person. The room like most hotels in Tokyo was small but sufficient. Breakfast: The Breakfast buffet has lots of options even for vegetarians. Service: The staff is very helpful and you don't face nay challenge even if you don't speak Japanese language.
Small but functional rooms but no choice of pillows which were uncomfortable. Decent but expensive Japanese restaurant but poor range of food and limited fresh fruit at breakfast buffet. Helpful and friendly employees
Great location, just across the road from the underground station. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Good nightlife around the hotel just in a walking distance. The rooms aren’t massive but a decent size for Tokyo. The shower room was massive with everything you need. Highly recommended!
