HOTEL WBF TOKYO ASAKUSA3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is reasonably close to Asakusa subway and Tsukuba express lines. It’s also near Senjoji temple and grounds. Asakusa is a convenient area to travel from. The rooms are small but so is anywhere I’ve stayed in Tokyo and in fact the bathroom was bigger than usual. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. It was a little more expensive than I usually pay but that was due to the exchange rate. The hotel had one free ice cream and free juice and ice tea in the lobby area. There’s washing and drying facilities. I would definitely stay there again if in Tokyo.
We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our Japan adventure. Close to Sensoji Temple and a large Don Quijote discount store for your Kit Kats and other treats. Plenty of restaurants to choose from including Steaks and Thai. Ameyoko market is about 30 minutes walk and if you don't mind walking then Akihabara and Ginza are doable at about an hour and an hour and a half. The hotel itself is very clean and also provide you with a complimentary smartphone with Google Maps and internet which we used most days. If you sign up to join the Hotel WBF club which is free, you can use the lounge with free drinks and ice cream available. We will be back when next in this part of Tokyo.
The room is very well equipped, particularly the bathroom. The hotel is located closed to the Senso-ji shrine, and 10 minutes from Asakusa metro station by walk. The neighborhood is very interesting to discover, in the old Tokyo’s fashionned style. The only drawback is that the room is very tiny: only the place for the bed.
This hotel would have gotten 5 stars from me if only the location was slightly more convenient for the subway. Very new and modern. Polite and helpful staff. If you sign up as a member (free) you can check in one hour earlier and check out one hour later. The staff speak multiple languages as they cater alot to foreigners. We booked a twin room which was quite spacious by japanese standards. The bathroom was also of reasonable size. There is a smartphone for use in the room which you can take and use as a mobile hotspot. It also included free international calls to a few asian countries. There is free coffee/tea/juice/ice cream/and a couple snacks in the afternoon/evenings - although we were not told this on check in and had to figure it out ourselves. You can rent bikes (and its free if you sign up as a member) The location is very convenient for the nearby sensoji temple and nakamise street. There is one asakusa station on the tsukuba express line not too far away, but the more convenient asakusa station on the ginza line (for many of the common tourist destinations) is further away (800m) and becomes quite onerous to get to/from when you’re tired from sightseeing all day. Overall very good value for money and was very happy with our stay.
I came here in a tour group for eight days. At first, I was pleased with the hotel; the rooms were extremely small, but they were neat; the staff seemed pleasant and willing to help. However, within a few days, I discovered that the staff did not speak Japanese fluently (they are all Chinese) and did not know how to answer my questions in English, either. Also, when my shower started flooding the bathroom, they refused to send anyone up to help fix the problem or even to help clean up the massive deluge flooding onto my carpet because it was "too late". (It was 7 pm.) I ended up having to pay to dry the sopping-wet towels again and again (it cost me 15 dollars) and when I asked to be reimbursed, they refused because I "washed the towels out of my own will." I would not return to this hotel because of the deplorable service.
The breakfast was good and there was enough variety to cater for everyone’s tastes. The reception staff were very also very pleasant and helpful. However, the so-called “double” room that we were given was much too small. We could barely move in it and I had to climb over my partner to get out of bed. There was not enough space to hang our clothes or to put our suitcases. It would have been suitable for one person and only merited two stars and not three.
Size of room bigger than the hotel we stayed previously, the bathroom/toilet is bigger as well. Complete toiletries, cleaned everyday. Free handy phone, but cannot use as hotspot. Did not use it because I am an iphone user & I find it a little difficult to use. Free coffee & snacks in the afternoon til evening. Though its a bit walk from Asakusa Station,its a quiet neighborhood and you get to pass Sensoji.❤️ Tip: Sign up to their hotel membership to avail early check in and late check out. Thats at least an hour each before/after the regular check in/out.
I booked 2 Standard Twin Rooms. One was much smaller than the other. The smaller room had a few hooks on the wall to hang some clothes so couldn’t unpack our suitcase. My kids hung some shirts and jackets on the hooks which was unsightly. There was a narrow space on the floor between the bed and the table and we had to leave our suitcase there. It meant that a person who needs to get to the other side of the room near the window would have to step over the suitcase. The other bigger room had a small space with a few hangars so we could unpack and store the suitcase in a corner. I paid extra for twin rooms as I read that it was more spacious than the double. So obviously not all of the rooms are the same size although of the same class.
We stayed in a double room. It was a bit smaller than what we expected when comparing another hotel that we stayed in Asakusa. The other drawback is this hotel is not that close to the metro stations but is very close to Sensoji Temple. Other than those drawbacks. I really enjoyed our stay. The price is really great and the room was really clean. We did put up a "do not clean sign" on some days, but the cleaning staff still left a bag of new towels and waters at our front door. I also enjoyed the free tea area on the first floor. I liked that the laundry room had multiple machines with clear instructions. The dryer and washer are separate machines which allowed our clothes to dry quicker. I really enjoyed our stay!
We stayed here for a few days towards the end of our holiday in Japan. At the start of our holiday we initially stayed at Unizo Inn Asakusa, we found Hotel WBF to be very similar, the bedroom and bathroom were a similar size, both were located in Asakusa but I’d say Unizo Inn seemed more central and was better located for public transport. The positives of choosing WBF over Unizo Inn were the rooms were slightly more comfortable, the rooms and facilities were modern and the breakfast was buffet style, so plenty to choose from. I would definitely stay at Hotel WBF in the future and I’d recommend both hotels to anyone visiting Tokyo.
