Dormy Inn Akihabara Hot Spring3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Traveled recently with my 18 year old son. We stayed here a total of five nights. My first thought was "oh, no, this won't work" but we just had to get a little organized. Took us a while to figure out how to turn the lights on! I actually had to go back down and ask - it's explained on a paper they gave me but, of course, I wanted to get to the room and might've read it there - if I had found the lights, lol. Everyone working the desk was very nice and very helpful. They didn't seem to speak a lot of English but we managed. We, thankfully, were trying to travel light but we still had to get a little organized for the tiny room to work. But, for the price and the location, it was really great. It's central to whatever you might need or want in Akihabara and very close to three different train stations. I did laundry upstairs twice. I didn't plan to but my sore legs from sightseeing gave me the courage to try the onsen. There was no one there most of the time. I was relaxing but HOT! There is a second one outside that always had a loud tv going, I'm not sure why - that wasn't relaxing. Our Sushi wifi was waiting for us in our room when we arrived. They also held several small bags for us after our first three nights until we came back three days later. Bags were waiting for us in our room (same room) when we checked back in. If you need a big hotel room, this won't work for you. But, if you can't manage in this hotel, don't get on a train whatever you do!
If you go to the onsen in the morning, they will put fruit inside of it which gives it a great scent. The rooms are decent. The breakfast is a set meal which is good as well. Great location and for the price I paying definitely worth it.
The hotel is located in between Kanda metro station on the Ginza line and a 7 Eleven convenience store. It's less than a 5 min walk to the Akihabara (electronic) district. It's about a 30 in train ride to Shibuya or Shinjuku but only 10 mins to Asakusa The service of the staff is exceptional - always willing to help and accommodate your needs. The best attitude and service I've had in hotel that I've stayed at. The rooms are a decent size for Tokyo. Clean, with a excellent power shower with two different modes. Electric toilet with heated seat. Toothbrush, tooth paste, cotton buds, hair clips and responsible razors proved. You also get lounge wear (top and bottoms & slippers) that you can wear to breakfast, the osen (public hot bath) or around the hotel. Note that the costume in Japan is to osen totally in the nude, so prepare yourself for that if you decide to go! There They serve ramen (soy-sauce based) every night for free and you get a draft beer for free every-night! Breakfast is a buffet - mainly Japanese options like grilled salmon, mackerel, miso soup, pickles, curry, rice, tempura and noodles. There is also salad, Yakult, yogurt, fresh fruit and a toastie (only bread based option), tea and coffee as the western options. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. There is also an indoor and outdoor osen on the top floor, with a cold bath and a sauna that is open fro 3pm to 10am (closed 1am to 5am). The hotel will keep your luggage until you check in and can transport it to another hotel in Japan for a fee to save you humping it on the subway/train. Would definitely stay here again!
My husband and I spent a week here and loved it! Due to our tattoos we were unable to use the onsen, but we were aware that is typical in Japan before coming. We got breakfast included in our booking and enjoyed the Japanese style breakfast daily. The free ramen from 9-11p daily was also a good late night meal! Room was small but that's the norm here, also had fridge, hair dryer, sink, drinking glasses, tea kettle and mugs. Staff understood basic English and were incredibly friendly and helpful. They provide umbrellas for daily use if you need one. Close to akihabara station and the subway station. Never heard our neighbors, would highly recommend!
Really really small room but probably a regular size for Tokyo. The sink and toilet area are separate. Has a safe and laundry facilities and the onsen is fabulous with an indoor and outdoor baths (best onsen we’ve had all vacation, especially the outdoor one). Not enough electrical plugs but that seems to be the case everywhere. Beds are hard and the pillows harder, but that’s typical Japanese hotel. The bed was fairly small. A little ways from Akihabara station but still very nice. Clean. I’d stay here again just for the onsen. It was a short walk to Ueno park from there.
My husband and I enjoyed staying at this hotel a lot, we booked it with breakfast included. The location is perfect as it's approx. 10 minutes walking from Akihabara station, however there is even a closer station in which you can take the Ginza Line called Suehirocho and from there you can quickly arrive to Ueno and Asakusa, in any case you are really well connected. The hotel room was comfortable having also all items needed (toothbrush and toothpaste, razor, brush, etc.). From 15 until 22 you can enjoy their beautiful onsen, furnished with even more items, we actually went always there if we had the chance for a 20 minutes relaxing bath. Please read the rules carefully. Inside the women and men bath you can even find a laundry machine you can use for free and a drier that is just 100 yen. The traditional japanese breakfast was good and you can alternate it with a western breakfast. If you have the chance please try the Tokyo Smoothie!
Its the typical small room but compact. I really like the experience of the Onsen but whether its authentic or not, I do value the experience. Customer service is also good. The guy helped us to get a ticket for the football match by accompanying the hubby to 711 beside it. Oh, the 711 beside it also is a plus!
this was my first time in Tokyo and I really love this quiet hotel with a Japanese spa on the rooftop, adjacent to a train platform and very convenient location to travel true this marvellous, civilized & safe City
They advertise a "Hot Springs" onsen at the hotel. This is simply not true. On their roof is a Japanese style communal bath, but it's just hot tap water. It is NOT a hot springs, and not technically an "onsen". I felt deceived. They even put "hot springs" in their name. There are many hotels in Japan that do have natural hot springs water, this is not one of them. Outside of this false advertising, the location is great for tourists, lots of public transportation nearby. Lots of convenience stores and restaurants nearby. The staff do not speak much English, but they were very friendly. The room is on the small size, but manageable. Everything worked, but awkward lighting that is very difficult to understand and work with remote controls. Small kitchen area. I liked the free laundry machines (you pay for the dryer). Good value hotel. If they had the onsen, as advertised, I would have given 5 green dots. I really felt cheated, and wouldn't have stayed there otherwise.
The room I had was small, no doubt. It felt smaller because it was divided into an entry hall, bedroom, and bathroom. The bathroom is shower only and toilet (with washlet). The entry area had a sink with hot water maker, small refrigerator, and some cups and mugs. The bedroom is cozy but the bed was a double and I had a great night's sleep. Now the reason I booked this hotel was that it has a large ofuro on the ninth floor. It is Japanese style so you are bathing with lots of other men. Just deal with it. The bath is spacious and the water was great. There is a small outdoor bath too, but the water temperature was cooler and seating not as comfortable. Anyway, be sure to follow the rules and shower before entering the baths. Bathing tip: after the bath, use the smaller washcloth to wipe yourself off. Don't head out into the change area sopping wet. The change area had lockers with keys, hair dryers, and lots of amenities (razors, combs, cotton swabs, etc.). It also is the laundry room. There is also a vending machine for your after bath refreshments. My stay was a little pricey, more than I would usually pay for, but the bath was well worth the extra money. Location was great, within ten minutes to Akihabara station, although the closest station is Suehirochō. Anyway, if can stay at a discounted price at Dormy Inn, give it a try.
