Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed here for 4 days for business trip on November 2017, nearby train station akasaka mitsuke maybe walking around 100 meters. From Haneda / Narita Airport, you can drop in front of this hotel and returned. For all moslems. there are little options for breakfast but it's okay, because there is seven eleven on ground floor. In this hotel, you can easily leaving your luggage here, even you already left by this hotel. But 1 minus thing from this hotel is there is no air conditioner, so the solution from room service is I had to open the window like every single night
Travelling on holiday as a family of 3, we thought it was a good price considering this is a 4 stars hotel, and it certainly looked that way seeing the exterior and foyer of the hotel; however we shouldn’t have judged a book by its cover… Location – Brilliant location for shuttle bus drop off/pick up as it’s right in front of the hotel. The metro station and the heart of Asakasa is just a stone throw away, divided by a main road/foot bridge. Having said that, this is also a negative as you do receive a considerable amount of traffic noise during peak hours. Luckily the traffic does die down at night (unless police/ ambulance decides to whiz pass the hotel) Corridor – The corridor (approx. 100m in length) runs the full length of the hotel with a main lifts foyer in the middle. If your room is close to the lifts foyer, it can get noisy; but if your room is at the end of the corridor, it’s a long walk to the lift… choose your room location wisely. Room – Reasonably sized by the Japanese standard, not big and just enough room to place your luggage. Considering the size of the room, it’s probably adequate for business traveller but I can’t say the same for our 4yo. There’s not much character to the room and it feels a bit dated considering how grand the foyer is. Don’t expect too much as it’s just a standard room – 4 walls, small TV (no English channel) and a large window facing the main road. For the very least, the room is clean. Check in/Check out – Super fast and effortless. Having said that, do expect a long queue at the time of check out. Service – In typical Japanese fashion, everyone (but one) was super nice and really helpful, most speak English which is handy. We did endure an incident with the man-in-charge (the manager, maybe?) at the porter area whereby we wanted to use the scale to weight our luggage at the waiting area (no traffic and less than 5 metres from the porter area). Not only was the man super rude and inflexible, he would not let us use the scale unless it is 1 metre within the porter area – this proved to be extremely inconvenient given that the porter area was within a high traffic area. In the end, we had to move our luggage one piece by one piece (between the waiting area and the porter area) and battle the traffic to weight our luggage. Despite the bitter experience, some of the (female) staff did offer to help (move our luggage) which was nice of them. 7-Eleven – Located on the ground floor, this proved very handy for snack.
Stayed here just recently for 3 nights for business and I must say, its a great hotel. the location is bang opposite Akasaka Mitsuke metro station, which has connectivity to everywhere in Tokyo. The Akasaka area is amazing for food and hence, one will find no problem at all finding good food, not just Japanese, but even other cuisines. the downsides are that the rooms might be considered small, but I guess that's what Japan offers in such types of hotels. There is no fitness center, which might be a bummer for people who like to workout. The staff can tend to be not aware of the surrounding areas, but they do try to help. Overall, very good hotel with good connectivity to Shinjuku, Tokyo station and other main attractions in Tokyo.
Stayed at this hotel for three nights in early September. Comfortable hotel with a good mix of breakfast options. As with most Japanese hotels rooms are on the small size but comfortable. Hotel is in a good location for getting around Tokyo with many restaurants in the area. Japanese and western buffet for breakfast. Free internet. Good location from metro to get around Tokyo.
We stayed here for four nights on a recent trip to Japan. The hotel was comfortable. Over the road were dozens of restaurants to choose from as well as two train lines, so it was easy to get around from. The airport limousine bus service drops you right at the hotel which was an added bonus after 24 hours of travel to get there.
Love the location of this hotel. Staff is friendly and very helpful. this is the third time I have stayed here and service is consistent. Location is great for evening dining. Not only is this hotel located close by to train and amazing dining but it also offers bus service (for a fee) to Narita or Haneda Airport.
Personally I like Akasaka a lot because this area is close to everywhere in Tokyo. It is easy to head west to Shinjuku or head east to Tokyo Station area. And, Hotel Excel is just right next to the Metro Station so that it is super convenient. Despite the fact that the hotel is not new, the room is still very clean with comfortable air-con. And, the room is large enough for a couple to put 2 luggages in! :)
Again a fantastic experience! We first stayed here in 11/2015 and now again in 5/2017; and both experiences were 1st rate! When we travel to Tokyo, we love to stay in Akasaka, and this is the best spot. Predominately, a business hotel, the area is quiet and feels a bit like San Francisco. With green areas nearby, street upon street of restaurants, and high rise office buildings we felt right at home. It’s a great home base for seeing this side of Tokyo, and it eases you into Tokyo life at a slower pace than Shinjuku. The metro and buses are just steps away. The room sizes are large by Japanese standards, and very comfortable. We especially like the superior double, it has a bit more space and well worth the little extra cost. There are restaurants in the lobby, but you’d be better off going out to the terrace restaurants or across the street, where there are tons of places to eat. The bed is very comfortable and the style of the rooms is light and airy with modern zen overtones. And if you choose a room with a tub, you will definitely feel as if you have had a true Japanese experience. We will always stay here when in Tokyo!
The hotel seemed to be located in a very safety and convenient area. You would see a lot of government office buildings, foreign ambassy buildings near the hotel. You can also see many people running in the morning alongside the buildings. Across the hotel, there are lots of restaurant, pubs and convenient stores that you can enjoy a variety of food late night. The hotel can be easily access using subway lines and it provides a great breakfast buffet.
It is in the centre of Tokyo, Akasaka, so it is easy access to all the sightseeing place. But there is not so much shopping area near the hotel. Only one Bic Camera and one drug store. The room is clean and comfortable. The front desk can help to reserve the limousine bus for airport transfer.
