Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The title of the review says it all; three reasons why this hotel is a good place to stay especially for first-timers. Yes, the rooms are small but not unusually so for a Tokyo hotel. It is slightly more expensive than the other hotels in the area, but not by much. And the hospitality service has the usual high Japanese standards. But the main reason why this hotel is such a good choice is that it is the best hotel near Akasakamitsuke station, a well-known crossing point for the two oldest subway lines, the Marunouchi and the Ginza lines. These two lines allow you to get to all the major Tokyo districts of interest by just using one line (no changes) -- Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ginza, Tokyo, Ueno, Asakusa, and Ikebukuro. Add to that, there are great restaurants covering all tastes and budgets in the main Akasaka district just across the street. Plus the hotel is major enough to be one of the Limousine Bus stops, handy for those with a bit too much luggage to lug around the subway. On another trip to Tokyo, you may want to stay in your favourite district, but for me, the convenience of being next to Akasakamitsuke station beats out all other locations.

We were fulfilling our Lifelong dream to see the cherry blossom in Japan. We joined A group from the UK and were booked to stay in this hotel. Located In the middle of town, perfect for walking to shops and restaurants. A buzzing area. The hotel is very run down, small rooms with no curtains, instead the window is wall papered and sliding , which allows very little light in. The glass window is fixed and can not be moved. It felt very uncomfortable being in the room measuring 4x5 meters. Nights were hot and uncomfortable and the air-condition could not be lowered for some reason. The bed was small and uncomfortable and the pillows were stuffed with what seemed like beads or grains. There was no way of finding out. Towels were small and flimsy. Staff hardly spoke or understood English. Breakfast was mostly Japanese food with few international edible foods. The que for breakfast can be long and on the first morning had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. We ended spending most of our time outside and came back only to sleep .

Excellent location with very short walk to metro with different lines. Spacious for 3 pax in a room which is surprise for Japan hotels. Easy access from airport via bus limousine and they have a counter at hotel for return to airport as well which makes reservation an ease.

With Tokyo being so spread out and relatively costly, choosing a hotel with a convenient location at the right price is essential. This was our first stay at Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu and we were delighted with the location, service, rooms and the excellent buffet breakfast. It was a great choice and worth the price we paid compared to other similar options.

The hotel offered a comfortable room with great amenities (in room coffee and tea, nice shampoos and body wash). The breakfast buffet was delicious and had many choices from local cuisine to Western options. My bed was comfortable but I heard a lot of noise from the street. It was convenient to have the Narayan airport bus available right from the hotel. I would recommend to business travelers.

This is my third stay in this hotel. It’s a good hotel with a great location as it is easy to go everywhere from the local metro. There is only one bad thing, no sound insulation in the door, it’s so poor it’s like there is no door at all. When other guests walk by and talk normally it’s like they stand beside you and you really think if you have closed the door. If you are okay with this then it is a good hotel with a perfect location.

Facing the Tokyo metro station, easy access, not far from Ginza and close to shops, restaurants and pubs (walking distance). Small but comfortable rooms, excellent choice of restaurants nearby, friendly and helpful staff. Loved staying there.

The hotel is very near to restaurants, shopping places, local attractions & etc. All are within walking distance. Love the convenience store located just below the hotel! Not to forget the duty free shopping BIC which just across the road! Don't forget to check this out! Feel free to visit each floor! Lastly, let my breakfau7st photos tell you the story...

I have stayed at this hotel several times now. First with the not so good, the rooms themselves are not the lure to stay here. Rooms are old but clean and have everything you need. Typical small business hotel type rooms with not so good air circulation, you will notice the stale air right away when you enter your room. Having said that, there are many Pros to this place. Location, location, location. It is right across the street from the subway, plenty of restaurants and shopping. The service at this hotel is also fantastic. The breakfast spread is quite impressive and has the western or Japanese option. There will be something for everyone. Lastly, the Airport Limousine stops at the front door which makes things very convenient! I will be back.

Convenient location, I stayed there comfortably for 5 days. The only complaint was that the windows could not open, and there was only warm air circulation in window in the hotel. This made the room a bit too warm and stuffy.
