The Hotel Monterey Akasaka is a small hotel that offers pleasant rooms, a quiet location and rock bottom rates.
You can save a lot of money in Tokyo by staying outside one of the glamorous areas like Shinjuku or Roppongi. The Hotel Monterey Akasaka is a perfect example of this. It’s in Akasaka, which is really not a bad place to stay. It’s a quiet, clean and safe area that is home to many embassies and upscale apartments. The Monterey Akasaka is really only a short walk from Akasaka-Mitsuke subway station, which gives easy access to the rest of the city.
The hotel is a business hotel, but it has a vaguely European design and a bit of a boutique-y feeling. Rooms are standard size for Tokyo and are well equipped. Some rooms have excellent views over the green expanse of the Akasaka-Goyoichi, a park-like area that belongs to the Imperial Family.
Because it’s a bit out of the way, you’ll often find rates here that put the hotel into the budget category. And, considering that, it’s a GREAT deal.
