Recent guest reviews
Akasaka Excel is part of a chain found in major cities of Japan and offers very good hotel services and all the comforts a traveller would normally seek at competitive prices . Their breakfast buffet is a delight with a large variety of dishes catering to different cultures besides Japanese . It is ideally located in the Chiyoda district with major business enterprises as well as restaurants etc located nearby .
Stayed here for 3 nights on a tour and it was a really good, modern hotel with all facilities including a heated toilet seat that flushed automatically! Great location - opposite a metro station and on a main road with a 7/11 in the lobby which was very handy. The rooms were larger than expected and had a large double bed which was surprising as I was travelling solo and usually get a tiny single bed. Staff were very polite and helpful and everyone was very friendly. Highly recommended.
The hotel is conveniently placed next to the Nagatacho underground station, which has links to other underground lines. Rooms are small but clean and have everything you need such as fridge, safe and free WiFi. Reception is on the third floor and this floor also has an elevator which goes down to the second floor and onto an overhead walkway - which is the easiest way to get across the busy street.
Walking distance to train station, shopping mall good selection of restaurants around the area and 7eleven is just down in the lobby. Only stayed overnight so cannot give a compressive review. The room size was bigger than Japanese standard but everything else is normal (small), like the bed, toilet and shower area. The place is clean and the staff are very helpful no problems with communicating in English. Will consider again if need hotel close to the area.
A nice, modern hotel, well located (across from subway station). Food was average, room clean but small. Seven Eleven in building. Nearby restaurants and government buildings. Many of the staff speak English.
This is a nice hotel in Tokyo in the Nagatacho area. The rooms are quite good even if mine had not a view on the street and had a window that was not possible to open to change the air. The typical Japanese bathroom and the shower (with Shiseido products) are good enough. The breakfast area is big and with international meals. The reception staff is fast and gentle. You can book (and pay) a shutlle service to the Narita airport (it will cost you less than a taxi if you are less than 4). The Nagatacho metro station is close to the hotel.
Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu is very strategically located 1 minute walk to akasaka train station and many cafes and Japanese authentic restaurants. There is also a good size supermarket across the road behind a huge electronic store called BIC Camera. The rooms are small as in any Japanese hotels but very clean and well maintained.
very impressed! i wanna stay there again when i visit tokyo. the bell captain, front clerk, and restaurant staff were nice and their smile made me relax and happy. i recognize why my boss recommended to stay there. it's not only the good location but also great staff!
Stayed here for a business trip for 3 nights. As others have said, it has nothing but the location going for it. If you are an international traveller, then definitely not the place for you. Cleanliness : Can be much better. There was hair in the toilet bowl and the sheet had some sort of a paint mark on it. The Sofa and footstool are stained and dirty. Coffee maker had dust on it. Room was SMALL. Passable given Tokyo standards. But a small room tucked away at the back with nothing to look out was not pleasant. Breakfast : Same menu two days in a row. Half cooked pasta and french fries for the non meat eaters. Thank god for cereal and bread! Concierge desk speaks no English, so how does one get help about airport transfer? Service is basic so don't expect much.
Long review time! Love this hotel :) Airport limo drops right at the doorstep and lobby is on the 3rd floor. Everything is easily accessible! Subway is just opposite the road and down an escalator. Huge electronics store (Bic Camera) opposite the hotel as well (i'm talking about 7 levels or so). And SO MUCH FOOD & CONVENIENCE STORES at the back. Takoyaki, gyoza, ramen, etc omg i miss this place. There's Don Quixote somewhere down the road too. Just keep walking around and you will find something! There's also alot of karaoke parlours there (karaoke-kan, etc) and pachinko if are into that. Train station there is Akasaka-mitsuke and you can get a pasmo card at the ticket machine (suica has to be bought elsewhere but it doesn't matter much). Easily accessible to all the main spots that tourists usually go. Hotel staff are friendly and they brought up our bags to the room for us as well. Anyway the hotel is part of a mall (Tokyu Plaza) and there's a Saizeriya there at basement 1 (family restaurant) and i ate super cheap escargots everyday hahaha. :') a cafe downstairs as well and a 7-11. TLDR; best hotel i have stayed. Heated toilet seats, convenient, food everywhere, can choose smoking or non-smoking room Pictures: comfy bed, view from room and view of hotel I will definitely book this hotel when i come back to Tokyo again!
