    Do Drink the Water!

    by

    No need to buy bottled water in Japan. The Japanese pride themselves in providing everyone with clean free water. It is one of their priorities of life! I hope you like rice, for it is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While staying at the Akasaka, you will be treated like a rock star, because of all of the attention you will receive from the very professional, and very young staff. Get ready to see all sorts of gadgets. There are pastel colored clothes irons that are wireless, hand dryers that have the force of a small typhoon, toilet seats that are heated and that flush and lower itself automatically. The travel desk personnel are very helpful and are multilingual. They provide you with all sorts of free maps and make all of the arrangements for your travel inside and outside of Tokyo. Do not enter the businesses or hotels with a wet umbrella. There are umbrella stands that provide you with a free lock, so that yours will be waiting for you when you are ready to leave. A fresh unisex Yukata (summer kimono) will be placed on your bed every AM, and new toiletries supplied such as: razors, hair brushes, toothbrushes plus the usuals are provided daily.

    If you decide to purge your luggage of unwanted items, once you are ready to check out of your room, leave what can be used behind on the bed or desk so that the maid may enjoy. If you drop it in the wastepaper basket the maid must throw it out with the garbage. One woman's trash is another woman's treasure!

    Get ready to tip at the Akasaka.

    Excellent value and Great service - Akasaka Prince

    by

    The Akasaka Prince Hotel is about 37 miles (60 km) from Narita Airport. It holds within its forty stories 761 guest rooms and a number of restaurants and bars. Across the street is a shopping mall. A subway station is a short and quick walk away.

    This hotel is one of the stops for the Airport Bus that makes it easy to use for a tourist or business traveler.

    Prices for the rooms vary but I had a fabulous room. It had a separate bedroom and bath. The main room was very spacious and contained a dining room, living room, entertainment center and a second bath and shower. The view was excellent from my room about half way up the tower.

    Service was impeccable and it was a delight staying at this hotel.

    I’ll be back.

    Unique Quality: I loved the main room where I could work and eat in comfort away from my bedroom.

Akasaka Prince, nice and convenient

by TripAdvisor Member oldkeg2

The Akasaka Prince had friendly hotel staff and the rooms were clean, spacious, and modern. This hotel is conveniently located close to the subway and there's plenty of good restaurants within walking distance (even a McDonald's and Starbucks for the homesick American tourist). The breakfast on the 40th floor was decent. From what I could tell, most of the hotel cuisine was Japanese style. The Souvenir shop sold beverages and snacks which was very convenient. Also, if it's raining, the hotel will lend you an umbrella for the duration of your stay. I would stay here again in the future.

Highly Recommended

by TripAdvisor Member CCN

The Akasaka Prince offers good sized rooms at reasonable rates. It is located in a lovely part of Tokyo, just opposite the New Otani. Around it are many restaurants and shops. The Diet and ministerial residences are within walking distance, so the area feels very safe and secure. The surrounding roads are wide and tree-lined. Not at all the usual image one has of Tokyo.

The subway station is a a 5 minute walk away and connects to many of the tourist destinations in Tokyo.

Service is very good and the staff are extremely helpful and polite.

Rooms on the high floors have views of the Imperial Palace and Shinjuku. The bathroom is a bit cramped but the bed room is spacious and comfortable.

We would definitely recommend it as a good value hotel in a nice location.

Perfect!! Upgraded to a suite and best service ever!

by TripAdvisor Member Photoguide

We stayed on the 26th floor. We originally booked a regular, double room but were upgraded when we arrived (got there about 2 hours before check-in). They kept our bags in a secure room as we chose to spend the afternoon in Ginza before returning to check-in. We came back about two hours after check-in began and were given the upgraded room. Very awesome!

The bedroom and living room/dinette area were all wrap-around windows with a ledge you could sit on. I felt like we were taking a page straight out of my favorite movie, Lost in Translation. There were two bathrooms, each outfitted with the typical delux electronic toilets in Japan, shower and bathtub and sink. It was so beautiful to get up every morning and see Mt. Fuji from our windows, not to mention all those blossoming cherry trees. Japan simply couldn't be better than in the Spring.

Also, the hotel offers a bus service that runs to the Narita airport a few times daily. It was about 10 yen more expensive than taking the trains but it's also half an hour faster! Plus, you get to travel comfortably and without worrying about your bags. This is by far the most convenient way to get to and from the airport.

Stay at the hotel and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Nothing but the best service, friendliness and courtesy from here.

Oh! and if you want an excellent "nouveau Japanese" restaurant, try the nearby oyster bar place on the top level of the shops across from the hotel. It's the one nearest the hotel on the corner. :) Excellent Sake!

Good location fine views

by TripAdvisor Member MACWOMBLE

I found the hotel lobby and rooms a bit bland. However I requested a room above the 30th floor (were located on the 33rd) and that what has won me over. The views particularly at night were awesome. The concierge staff were very helpful and had home made maps with detailed instructions on how to get to the major tourist sights. These were real idiot guides eg leave subway at exit 6a turn right walk past etc etc. Really useful. Loved tokyo, a must see is 'Shibuya crossing", it is humanity gone mad. Then jump on the Ginza line and go right to the other end to "Asakusa". Its just as busy but is as old as "Shibuya' is new.

Best Deal in Tokyo - Stay Here!!!

by TripAdvisor Member prere

This is my favorite tokyo hotel. It is worth 2-3x the price paid, which was $130 or so. The rooms are hip and fun. Location is great, right on a subway line. There's a little bit of a scene, but the real high point is the awesome modern austin powers decore, the great views and the very comfortable roomy rooms.

The food in the hotel is pretty average - again the strong points are the rooms and price. There are lots of good places around the subway that is 2-3 minutes away from the hotel. I'd recommend the revolving sushi place a block away from the subway station for a quick delicious cheap meal.

Again, I can't recommend this place enough. There's no other hotel I'd stay at in Tokyo.l

Beautiful Hotel in the Middle of Tokyo

by TripAdvisor Member eternalX

After staying in the Akasaka Excel Hotel, we moved to the Prince because it was cheaper and are we glad we did! The Prince is a beautiful hotel with big, modern rooms (some with a panaoramic view of Tokyo). The service was also excellent and the price was excellent. We never ate there as there are many local dining options just down the street. Highly recommended.

Help with hotel!!!

by veroniqueaimee

Can anyone recommend which hotel would be better to stay in? I have narrowed it down to the Sofitel in Ueno and the Akasaka Prince Hotel.

Which is in a better area to sightsee as I will only be in Tokyo for 4 days.

Thanks! :)
