[Travel to Tokyo]: Centurion Hotel Grand Akasaka Stay Review

Saturday, January 19, 2019

Hello loves, I'm back with a new post and this time I'll be sharing another part of my travel to Tokyo. After transportation in Tokyo which I've already shared on my previous post now is time for another big question where to stay? Especially for those who haven't visited Tokyo or Japan before you might be wondering where is the best place to stay. I've actually questioned myself which location I should choose to stay during my last visit, having very little information regarding the place since its my first time I did my research and read various reviews before finally deciding to stay at Centurion Hotel Grand Akasaka which is located at Akasaka Mitsuke. 
At first I was hesitant because I'm not sure whether I should stay at a hotel or Airbnb but considering the price, convenient and location I decided to go for hotel instead of Airbnb. Here's my trick to pick a hotel is their location which should be close by to train stations because then you don't have to worry about traveling back and forth to be a hassle. Especially when its your first time having a place to stay close by the station is the best decision because then you won't get lost cause all you need to do is find the station and you can easily get home. 
Where to stay in Tokyo, well I'm no expert cause my last visit was my first time to Tokyo, Japan but I can already tell I'm in love with the city! I don't regret my decision staying at Centurion Hotel Grand Akasaka because the location is super close to Akasaka Mitsuke station, it only takes 2 min walk and there's a lot of convenient stores around the neighborhood. The neighborhood is also very lively and you can easily find souvenir and restaurants everywhere. 

I booked my hotel through Agoda and since I was with my parents I gotta pick a room that accommodate to three people thus at that time I booked the  Double Room - Annex. The room is quite spacious actually although not much room for luggage but its okay for us. Overall my stay was pleasant but they only allow check in after 3 pm so it was quite inconvenient especially if your landing time is early in the morning. You'll need to get ready to stroll around the city before you can check into the hotel. There's a few options in Tokyo for you who land on early morning flights you can actually drop off your luggage at the airport and use the delivery service where they will deliver you luggage directly to your respective hotels or you can go drop off your own luggage at your hotel then head out. I would suggest going with the second option because the first one will charge you a lot more but if you don't mind then it would be much easier since you can go straight the your destination without a detour to your hotel first. 

Okay now let's talk about the room, since there's going to be three of us the room has one double bed and one sofa bed. The room has all the basic amities like soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer etc. They even provide a handy phone in each room which allows you to go on google maps when you travel. this handy mobile phone is complimentary to use when you stay at their hotel. Although I already have a portable wifi but this handy really does come in handy because they also provide information like places to visit, where to eat etc... 

Below is a glimpse of our room.    
What I love most in Japan's toilet!! Their warm toilet and bidet, We got one at our hotel. Basically you'll always find clean toilet with a similar feature everywhere across Tokyo even in Subway stations.  



There's a bath tub too

Actually around the area you can find a lot of other hotels too but my stay at hotel is pleasant and will definitely recommend it. The staffs are also very kind and are willing to assist. There's one time when I asked to borrow a laptop and they allow me to use the one which is at the lobby which I believe is a laptop prepared for the guest. Thank you for reading I hope you find this post useful.
