I stayed at this wonderful hotel for a week in April, with my family. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this hotel after reading some of the reviews but was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is over 26 story’s high (not sure the exact number) and on one side has fantastic views of the Tokyo Skytree and surrounding areas. Asakusa is a really nice area- it felt very authentic Japanese, with lots of nice places to eat, markets, friendly locals and the stunning Senso-ji Temple. Half of us stayed in a deluxe Skytree room and the others stayed in single rooms. All were very clean, functional, had air con (and what I think was an air humidifier) fridge, desk etc and great views. The rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast was up on one of the top floors and fantastic- buffet style with plenty of Japanese, Chinese and Western options. Food was really good and the views, again, were exceptional. The hotel staff were extremely polite, friendly and helpful and made our stay all the better. I’m already planning to return to this gem of a hotel in a couple of months!
Don't believe the negative reviews about this hotel. Started a tour of Japan with 3 nights here. Yes it is tour and business orientated. Rooms could be larger, but let's face it rooms in Tokyo are never big. Very clean and above all excellent location. 26th floor restraunt breathtaking views. Food excellent and very varied. You could do much worse than starting a stay in Tokyo here. I'd stay here again on a Tokyo visit.
Japanese mafia managed pseudo hotel, the food is horrendous and expensive, and at the Top Floor an “elitists “ for Japanese members of mafia Lol .... disgusting and lack of class. Sadly some of the staffs do their best in vain.
Family of 4 . Stayed there 3 nights. Had 4 singleton's beds. Room was on 8th floor. Great views of Tokyo sky tree. Clean and spacious, nice bathroom. Walking distance from Senso-ji temple. Breakfast was great with a huge variety of Japanese and Western food and loots of fresh produce. Good value hotel.
This is a great hotel with splendid views, we even saw Mont Fuji from here. It's near the temple Senso-ji en the Tokyo sky tree. There is an airport limousine service that stops right in front of the hotel. The subway is just 5 minutes away. There are a lot of good restaurants in the neighborhood. We had a room for 3 people. The room was clean, comfortable and large. It had a nice bathroom. The hotel was sound proof. The breakfast was fantastic, what a great variety to choose from. You can choose to have a Japanese breakfast, but also a western one. All very well prepared. While having breakfast it was nice to sit near the window, to admire the skyline of Tokyo. The only downside was the rooftop bar. It was very small and the prices of the drinks were to high.
I’ve stayed here before and just love this hotel. The sky view rooms on the upper floors are fabulous. You could sit at the window all night and see the view. The Airport Limousine stops there and goes to both Haneda and Narita. Personally I like the subways and trains, so it’s not too far to walk to G18- Tawaramachi. Some might find it a bit if a hike. I take the bac k street behind the hotel to avoid gutters and people when I’m wheeling my suitcase down to the subway stop. Note this subway does have lifts on both directions which is handy. I’ve also done a taxi to Ueno and then Keisei skyline to Narita or JR &monorail to Haneda. The deluxe rooms have an onsen style bathroom which has a small stool and seperate bath tub. The toilet is seperate and there’s a basin area outside the bath room. These are only in the rooms with deluxe I think. The hotel has an awesome restaurant on the ground floor and I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever Japanese wagyu. The course was 6800 ¥ plus additional cost for the wagyu but so worth it. Breakfast is extensive with everything you could want, including fresh shrimp, and ice cream. Staff are very polite. It’s my go to hotel for special stays in Tokyo. I’m a runner and have found plenty of good running spots early in the morning. Out at 5am and you’ll find plenty of others. Try running along the Sumida River as far one way that you want then turn around and enjoy the return in the opposite side.
Ok what do you wish for from a hotel? If you want crisp sheets, beautifully made beds, brand new facilities, minimalism and uniqueness, then look elsewhere. However, if what you want is somewhere convenient, comfy, in the middle of a great tourist area, easy access to transport links, with views to die for, fab breakfasts and what looked like great in house restaurants, then give this place a go. It’s pretty big, check in was fine, we had 4 beds in a room so didn’t expect masses of space but was bigger than I had hoped. Shower was good, views of the Sky Tower were fantastic. We ate breakfast one morning gazing at Mt. Fuji in glorious sunshine, sat in a corner on our own. Breakfast was a great choice. Beds are a bit hard but I don’t mind that. One thing that wasn’t great and hence the 4 stars is there is no lounge just to sit and play cards or chat with the kids. You are expected to buy a beer or drink which for me is a let down. Japanese restaurant in the ground floor lol fab but we didn’t try it. If you are travelling around, this is a fair priced hotel in a major area of a very expensive city. Metro was 2 or 5 mins away depending on which line you want and Senso ji temple one minute away.
I read prior reviews and booked because of location, amenities, room size etc. There were a couple reviews of poor AC and hard beds but I dismissed them. The beds are rock hard slightly softer than sleeping on the floor. Asked at guest services for options and we got a puzzled look. No English speaking channels on the TV. Almost everything in print in the room isn’t in English, even the portable AC unit we needed to run to cool the room Our room was on the eighteenth floor, two double beds, Skytree View. Everything was wonderful, toothbrushes, hair brush, Comp water, check in friendly, grocery store next door, five minute walk to Nakamise-dori Street, restaurants galore, subway access etc etc. They provide a free guide phon in the room you can take and but we didn’t need it. Because of the bed issues(important point) and AC we wouldn’t stay here again, and that’s sad.
Although we only stayed one night, I was so impressed with this hotel. It was immaculately clean, the staff were charming and there was strong WiFi. The view of the Skytree from our room was awesome. Has a drink in Ice Bar on the top floor which was reasonably priced for Tokyo. Great location for the shrine, Ueno Park etc.
Agree with past reviews on the location and general value given Tokyo hotel costs especially for families. The Asakusa train station entrance for the Tsukuba Express line is just two blocks from the hotel. However, the facilities are dated with noticeable wear and tear in the room and throughout the hotel. Lobby area is dark and cold feeling. Noticeable stains in the room carpet and in the buffet area. Breakfast buffet was good with plentiful selections leaning towards Japanese/Asian tastes. The clincher for the lower stars is the strange AC/heating system. We stayed on the 12th floor and the hallways and our room were sweltering. The thermostat on the wall did nothing but run the heater. I called downstairs and they explained that the system is centrally controlled and the heater is the only option given that it was cool outside. They brought up a fan but with a family of five the room stayed toasty to the point we barely stayed in the room.
