Not what I expected

Posted Oct 15, 2014
The Monterey Akasaka is close to a lot of restaurants but it's a hike from the subway which is a drag when you've been out all day and carrying a load. The hotel was clean and the front desk staff was helpful but not particularly friendly. The room was very small for two people. I liked the fact that we could walk to nearby restaurants and coffee shops. Not a bad place to stay if you don't mind the uphill walk after a long day of being out and about.

Great location with subway station 5 minutes walk in distance and a convenient part of the city. Room was a bit small but typical in Tokyo and great value for the price range. Hotel staffs are friendly and tried their best to help with anything although some limitations with English. Lots of restaurants are located couple blocks away.

Nice, tidy hotel with helpful staff.

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: The hotel had a nice atmosphere, and was a cut above the norm. I didn't try any of the food here due to time constraints, but I wish I had,
Cons: Very impressed, and will try to visit again,
Location: Imperial gardens opposite, shopping and subway stations to the left (10 mins) and right (5 mins). Nice location.
I was looking for a hotel close to Akasaka. The hotel is easily identified by its name on the side of the building. The lobby is spacious and nicely presented. The staff were very courteous and helpful, all with some English skills. The room was tidy and compact, as is the norm in Tokyo. Wired internet was available. The bathroom had all the things you'd need, and the shower was a straightforward set the temperature and go model, no mixing to try to get the right temperature. The staff also assisted with sending my suitcase from one hotel to another, which I'm happy to say worked without any problems. There is a general store about a minute's walk to the right, if you need supplies. Nice also to see an Aston Martin dealership on one side, and McLaren on the other, if you like pretty cars.

Good, but could do with some improvements

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Location is great
Cons: Sort out the room comfort. Provide better pillows. Rooms are a little small.
We have stayed here many times now and always had a relaxing stay. The hotel rooms are always clean, but the pillows are terribly uncomfortable japanese style 'beanbag' type pillows. Not nice. We stayed in a double room (not the smaller semi-double) and this is pretty small, but well laid out. Hotel staff are typically helpful. Hotel is very well located to the metro lines, also plenty within walking distance.

Excellent hotel

Posted Jun 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel fits a medium-low budget, and provide all necessary comfort and clean services. Wi-Fi free is a big plus. Its location is good, but there is no airport transportation going directly to the hotel door steps. if you come from Narita or Haneda Airport with more than one piece of luggage, try to use public trasportation at the first segment, from airport to Hamamatsucho or Shinbashi, then call taxi to hotel from there (Less than 2000 yen, about $20 USD). Utilizing subway and metro train systems (2-3 times train transfers) all the way plus 500 yards walking, will get you there, but takes lots of luggages lifting over stairsteps at many subway and train stations, because not every station has escalators available to help you move luggages up and down.

Very nice hotel for the money. Friendly and helpful staff. The room was a bit cramped but expected in Tokyo. Would stay again. Convenient to the subway and local Akasaka.

Excellent hotel

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: Good location. Pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable room.
Cons: More than one pack of coffee per person per day! Better instructions as to how to reduce the room temperature
Location: Excellent central location and near to the underground, wonderful selection of eating places in the streets behind the hotel.
A reasonable and attractive hotel in a central and pleasant area with good eating places within a stone's throw. Our room was comfortable and well equipped, the only criticism was that it was rather warm and we did not seem able to reduce the temperature. But all in all a really good find, reasonably priced.

Business hotel in business district.

Posted May 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for 5 days, great location close to subway for getting around the city no problem at all. Evenings on a weekend are quiet. Good restaurants and a few English bars which were usually reasonably full for a few beers. 1000yen ish to ropponghi if you're after a lively weekend ( although it is quite dodgy!). In summary Akasaka is a nice safe area with great transport links and a few restaurants / bars for the evenings.

Nice & clean, & quiet

Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: RooM is small but good floor plan. Relatively easy to move around.
Location: Near convenience stores, near train station, a number of cafes nearby
Vicinity is quiet, near Akasaka-Mitsuke train station, 15 minutes by taxi to Tokyo JR line. Also close to Lawson's (convenience store) & across is Family Mart.
