I had a wonderful stay at the Akama. From check-in to check-out the service was fantastic, in fact, beyond the extra mile. They even cared enough to watch out that cabs charged me reasonable rates. The common areas--lobby, coffee shop, restaurants--were closer to 5-star quality. It was wonderful to have views of the city and mountains from various points in the hotel. The traditional furnishings made the place more special than a typical business hotel. In fact, the hotel seemed well set up for events like weddings. My room was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a bit tight, but I had an extremely good deal, and being little it was not too much of a problem. I would recommend asking for larger rooms for larger individuals or parties of 2. The one drawback is that the hotel is not as central as others, but its location just off the ring road makes it easy for even first time visitors to find when taking cabs. Highly recommend this hotel.
