We arrived at the hotel with a warm greeting. Although it was very hard to communicate in English, everything was understood at the end. We had a room on the 10th floor and it was huge. You could fit at least two separate standard hotel rooms. The bed and linen was very clean and cleaned every day. The bed however was a bit too hard. The hotel is located about a 3 minute walk from Akasaka station on the Chiyoda lane. You pretty much have to transfer to any station you want to go to but I guarantee you the Chiyoda line is the least busy lane you will encounter. There's also free coffee for hotel users at the cafe! All in all a great hotel 10/10 The price has gotten more expensive after renovation. This name Hotel Avanshell Akasaka changed to a new name Innsomnia.

The hotel is quite quaint. Hidden between large buildings, there isn't much of a view. But the location is fabulous. Right behind the hotel is a subway station. A 10 minute walk to the metro. Over a hundred places to eat, all walking distance. And a grocery store across the street. The rooms are very large, comfortable and affordable for a two week stay. And the staff, very pleasant and helpful. I would stay here on all my future visits.

We stayed at this hotel on the last week of June. Our room is very spacious, clean light and airy. Bed is firm but very comfortable, The usual toiletries along with razors and combs provided for. Also free wi-fi and even an ironing board and iron. Free bottled water everyday and Japanese tea and coffee bags replenished. Would definitely stay at this hotel again if we came back.

On arrival the staff were very friendly and had no issue with us checking in slightly earlier. Our room was a good size with everything you needed although we had to ask for cutlery which proved no problem whatsoever. I loved the Japanese toilet with heated seat and cleaning facilities!! Hotel is in a great location with loads of bars, restaurants, coffee shops,supesupermarkets and shops. The Akasaka tube station is 2 mins walk from the hotel which is a goid line to get you around Tokyo. Would definitely stay here again.

Little gem of a hotel with huge rooms

5 out of 5
by from London
Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: The rooms are huge and have a little kitchenette including a microwave. The service is excellent, and the receptionists all speak pretty good English.
Location: There are two metro stations close by (one directly behind the hotel), and lots of restaurants and small supermarkets on and around the same road.
This hotel is a real find! The rooms are huge (especially by Japanese standards) with a balcony and a little kitchenette area including microwave. The staff are incredibly thoughtful and helpful (we stayed in the hotel at the beginning and end of our trip and they automatically took our stored luggage up to our room before we checked in the second time and remembered to change the pillows from feather to hypoallergenic). The receptionists all speak pretty good English and seem happy to help you plan your day out. The only potential downside is that the hotel doesn't have many amenities eg no restaurant or swimming pool. But there are lots of restaurants close by (including an Italian place next door) and they have an arrangement with a local gym if you really want to use one. The hotel is near two metro stations (one is directly behind the hotel) and there are a couple of small supermarkets nearby. The nearest tourist attractions are the imperial palace and the Roppongi area which has lots of good bars and restaurants.

Large room and very close to metro

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: - Location closed to the metros - Large room with small kitchen
Cons: - Smell of the smoking room
Location: - Shop at supermarket in the opposite side of street
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights on March 2014. The location is very close to Chiyoda metro line (about 2 minutes walk), however we find that the Ginza line is just a 10 minutes walk and you'll get to major location (ex. Shibuya, Ginza, and Ueno) without having to change trains. The room size is large and comfortable. However if you choose the smoking room it smells a little bit. There is a small kitchen in the room with microwave and an electric burner. The bathroom is nice and clean with many amendments. There is a supermarket just opposite the front of the hotel in which you can buy for a low price. Also, there is a good sushi restaurant, Sushi Midori, in the Akasaka Sacas building nearby.
