What we love…
- If you've heard the rumors that Tokyoites live in extremely small quarters, you've heard right. The B Akasaka is a typical Japanese sized space that happens to pack a big punch with clean lines and a modern, well laid out design.
- If you're accustomed to a ton of space this may not be the hotel for you, however if you're a seasoned traveler, who packs light, this modestly priced hotel will suit you perfectly.
- The bathroom is stocked with disposable essentials like razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste, hair brushes and q-tips—plus a heated toilet with a wall mounted control panel that feels a bit like the enterprise. You'll also find a neatly a folded kimono to slip into after your long flight at the end of your bed.
- The lobby has a complementary espresso machine, several vending machines selling drinks and instant noodles (for the hungry late night traveler), and on-site laundry facilities so you really can pack light and always have clean clothes—we love this feature.
- This hotel is located at the top of a large hill with a steep staircase, which looks impossible when you're dragging luggage. Don't worry,there's a parking garage to the right with an elevator that will take you and your luggage to the top stress free.
- For a small extra fee you can get breakfast included each morning which includes a selection of coffee, tea, juice, eggs, toast, croissants, fruit, rice, and fish. Normally we wouldn't suggest this but Tokyo isn't known for western style breakfast so if you need your coffee and eggs to function this might be a good option for you.
