Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Arrived in Japan from Manchester Via Qatar on the 8th of October and stayed at the Akasaka from the 8th until the 11th October, although the room was clean and tidy with a comfortable enough bed this was by far the smallest room I have ever stayed in, I don't think I even had a window. The location was good and I believe there is/was a mini market on the ground floor of the hotel where you can get noodles and Sake, on the first night being jet lagged and excited to of arrived I drank most of if not all of that bottle of Sake and mixed it with Ciroc which I had carried from England, I haven't drank Sake since.
In hindsight reviewing the five hotels we experienced in Japan, Excel's rating gets a boost. And it's all because of the location. The hotel is located in Akasaka which is really the ideal place to stay when in Tokyo if you want to be close enough to take a very short train ride (on a direct line) to the key areas, and walking distance to an array of great restaurants. The hotel is literally across the road from Akasaka Mitsuke station and it's incredibly convenient. The hotel itself is quite lovely (on the inside, maybe a little 'practically designed' on the outside), you don't really see the staff as the foyer is not on the ground floor. The room we had on the 10th floor was relatively small (especially compared to Hotel New Otani which is arguably much fancier and cost the same), and as a result there was limited storage space and the bathroom was truly TINY. The bathroom door got in your way when you're at the sink to give you an idea. You did get a Nespresso machine though and a Handy free-wifi phone which is great. And the bed was excellent, just the right firmness. I got a great nights sleep here, it was actually hard getting up. I'm increasing the rating for the hotel purely for the location, otherwise the small room and tiny bathroom would have brought it down (for the price).
My husband and I have stayed in this hotel several times in the last 10 years. While the room bathroom sizes are comparatively small, they are comfortable and clean. The bed is very comfortable. It is in a great location with all local transport alternatives within a 5 minute walk. Plenty of eating places in all price ranges near by. The hotel itself has a great restaurant where the food is excellent. The airport bus services this hotel from Narita. I recommend this hotel and the pricing for a city like Tokyo very reasonable in a safe neighborhood.
Location is walking distance to so many shops and is just right across one of the biggest Bic Camera stores in tokyo wc has everything from bikes, cameras, laptops to cosmetics. There are numerous restos also in the area from fastfoods to ramen shops. In the hotel building arcade itself, you can go to hooters or starbucks. The rooms are small wc is typical of tokyo hotels however it is very complete. This hotel offers you many amenities in the room. The beds are so nice to sleep in. The sleeping robe is very soft and i used it every night. There is even a 7-11 convenience store in the ground floor and a train subway just across. Definitely one of my favorite hotels in tokyo.
I chose this hotel because it is near to city center. The room is pretty tidy when we arrived, though it looks pretty old, but good enough for our stay. It provides a handy phone with free data and calls, though it is pretty slow and sometime the camera won’t work. The staff are very friendly, the concierge has even spend sometime with me to troubleshoot my transport back to airport by looking at the various options. The hotel has nearby train station and also lots of good foods, restaurant and bars. It is just 4 stops away to ginza, about 10 stops away to asakusa, and so on. I will definitely consider it again when i am in tokyo city.
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.
