The b Tokyo Akasaka is a small but efficient business hotel with clean rooms in Akasaka. It’s not the most convenient location but the rates are rock bottom!
If you want to stay in a decent room but are on a tight budget, you might give The B Akasaka a try. Akasaka is a little bit out of the way, but it’s a clean, safe and elegant neighborhood (this is where many embassies are located). Akasaka subway station is about 10 minutes’ walk away, so you’re not really far from anything here. The hotel is located at the top of a hill, so you will get sweaty coming here in the summer (unless you take a cab).
The rooms are small but neat and tidy. Note that there are no bathtubs, only showers (which is rare at Japanese business hotels). There’s a small restaurant on the ground floor where you can get simple meals.
The rates here are among the cheapest of any real hotel in the city (I mean, as opposed to capsule hotels and guesthouses). So, if you just need a clean place to sleep and price is your main criterion, you should consider The b Akasaka.
