The new HOTEL the M INNSOMNIA akasaka offers something unique for a Tokyo hotel: space. The smallest rooms at this new boutique hotel, built in a converted apartment building, start at 35sqm, enough room to essentially make them suites since they have a separate lounge and working space. The largest rooms run to a whopping 60sqm. Design is dark and moody with the photo prints a nice touch. What we don't like is the low ceilings and frosted windows, which make the rooms darker than they already are. We were also disappointed with the front desk staff, who were just plain rude and shouldn't be working in a service environment.
Work is a theme that runs through the hotel - INNSOMNIA provides a rental meeting space complete with AV set-up, called the space 'Workaholic.' There's also a 24-hour cafe bar in the M INNSOMNIA's lobby serving freshly brewed coffee by Kyoto brand Unir. Guests staying at the hotel can drink as much as they want for free.
There's also a rental kitchen and dining room called the 'Kitchen Drinker,' where you can cook and cater for a private dining group. It's more designed for local Tokyo people who might not have the space to cater for a dinner party in their own (tiny) apartment, but we can see the benefit for overseas guests using the space to host clients.
Akasaka location is handy and central; there's a huge selection of restaurants and bars at the hotel's doorstep, but it's not so great for shopping. There is however a 24-hour deli-style supermarket a few metres away and hotel stands right next to the Akasaka subway station. HOTEL the M INNSOMNIA akasaka offers great value for money compared to most other Tokyo hotels if space is a priority.Review updated April 25, 2017
