Recent guest reviews
We stayed here for our first four nights in Japan. It was a great choice. The staff are as friendly and helpful as they can be although some do not speak English- but then I don’t speak Japanese! Rooms small, but comfortable and have all the facilities you need. Our room had a lovely view of the sky tree tower and the full moon as a bonus. Breakfast is western and Japanese buffet, all well labelled, so we had the chance to try food we didn’t know. Easy access to the vibrant Asakusa area and transport links to explore further afield.
Hotel was easy to find, not too far from Sensoji Temple and Metro Ginza Line Asakusa station Exit 3. Room is small no space for a big luggage. Bed was comfy, all necessary things are provided. Staffs are okay, we r not impressed but not bad. Bathroom is smelled like musty but they are clean.
We stayed at the Keihan for 6 nights, and loved our stay. Hotels in Tokyo are quite expensive, and very small. Keihan was affordable with a relatively ‘big’ room compared to other hotels we’ve stayed in (unless you’re paying top dollar, don’t expect a lot of space). The bed was really comfy, but do yourself a favour and ask for an extra pillow. All things considered, we were impressed with the staff (super friendly and helpful), the breakfast (good variety), and most of all the location (right around the corner from the main shopping/sights in Asakusa). At this price, I don’t think it’s realistic to expect more. Would definitely stay here again!
Hotel Keihan Asakusa is on the main street, Kokusaidoori,easy to find. Check in and out was very easy, had a nice big bed for "a Japanese semi double" room. Bathtub was nice and water pressure was amazing. Close to all the tourist attractions and restaurants in Asakusa. I will recommend this hotel to anyone!
We were really happy that we decided to stay at hotel keihan in asakusa. The hotel responds quickly to questions by email and we had a nice welcome. The hotel room is small but contains everything needed, even a hairdryer. The breakfast was good value, good bread but also japanese dishes so you could experience that too. The staff is really helpful, friendly and professional. The asakusa neighbourhood was great! We dropped by senso ji every day, as the atmosphere was so great at night. Make sure you check it out at night. Lots of affordable japanese style restaurants nearby (sushi belt ramen etc)
Keihan Asakusa was our first stop i Japan. It was a nice first impression of Japan and their friendly people. All the staff at Keihan Asakusa was polite, helpful and friendly. It was no problem with their English some was actually very good. We got two rooms in 10th floor with nice view. They were very well equipped (even a pyjamas!) but rather small. We learned that it is common in Japan to put the luggage under the bed and that gave us more space. The breakfast was a nice mix of Japanese and westerly food. Keihan Asakusa is close to the Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street. This is an area where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of the past have survived. If you want to go to downtown, Tokyo is there two subway lines nearby. We used the bus from Narita airport, and the stop on the other side of the street at Asakusa View Hotel.
If I could I would actually give this a rating of 3 and a half, so don't take the 3 as a bad rating at all, it's just 4 means very good to me and 5 is out of this world. I have no complaints about Hotel Keihan we had a good stay. If you just need a base of operations to explore Asakusa and you won't be spending much time in the hotel then Keihan's pretty good. We'd always heard how small Japanese hotels were and out of maybe half a dozen we've stayed at this was the first I thought actually was small, but not so small as to be a problem. We were able to fit our baggage in the room and move around just fine, only one of us could walk around the bed at a time but that was not an issue. There was ample desk space for all our random travel gear and gadgets, and a small closet in the corner for stowing bags and hanging clothes. There was no iron or ironing board, but there's a trouser press, which was different but again, not a problem. There's an in-room air conditioning unit, it took a minute or two of fiddling with the different buttons to figure out how it worked as they're labeled in Japanese, but I expect that being in Japan after all. I'm not one of those travelers who expects everyone else in the world to accommodate my particular language, if you want everything to be like home, why travel? Anyway, easy enough to open a window if you can't figure out the air conditioning. Bathroom had good water pressure, very hot water which seems common in Tokyo. Also had a Japanese style toilet meaning it will spray your privates in a variety of ways. The tub was short but deep. Shampoo, body wash and conditioner are available in large pump bottles instead of those tiny little bottles you have to futz with. I thought the room was fairly clean overall although not pristine as some Japanese hotels are, there was nothing that caused much notice or an issue at all. Staff is friendly and helpful which is very typical of Japan, service there is excellent. We had no problems communicating with them. Japanese staff are usually quick to notice if you're confused about something, and equally quick about approaching you to help before being asked, even. We had paused while entering the breakfast room because we didn't know how it all worked and someone was there in seconds to help us out. You pre-pay for breakfast through a machine. Speaking of breakfast that was one of my favorite things about Keihan. There's a breakfast room off of the lobby that is light and airy and has wall seating offering a nice view of the Asakusa street. Breakfast was very good, served buffet style you just grab a plate, make the rounds, and choose what you want. There was both Japanese food and a few western choices (bacon, eggs, breakfast potatoes) for 1300 yen (roughly $11-$12) Overall it was a nice stay, as I said, it was a good base of operations for exploring Asakusa, comfortable, friendly and very close to the sights and temples.
Excellent priced hotel in a ideal location. You are only a few steps from the daytime/nighttime heartbeat of Asakusa. The famous Sensoji Buddhist Temple area, Hanayashiki Amusement Park, Sumida Park on the shores of the Sumida River (which runs through Tokyo) with its tour boats and dinner boats, downtown covered shopping and two train stations - are all nearby. Convenient quick train transport to the major Tokyo museum area (five museums.) From nearby, can see and photograph the Tokyo Skytree. Back to the hotel - the twin room was on the small side - but do-able. Fantastic Japanese style electronic toilet seat. Great, great breakfast with scores of choices of every kind. This is a must. Greeting and desk service people were extraordinarily helpful and were fluent in English. An excellent choice during your stay in Tokyo.
Average 3* business hotel in Asakusa: small rooms, clean but nothing special. Highly suggested for its location in the area: very close to the most important temple in Tokyo (Sensoji) and to the Tokyo Skytree Tower. Ueno area and the market easily accessible from here
Great Place as the location is just across from the Asakusa View Hotel which is well known. I was able to get dropped off at that hotel and walk across to the hotel. Staff only knew very minimal English. At another time the staff was unable to communicate with me. Luckily I could speak small amount of Japanese. The great plus was that there was a free washer and dryer but it took a very long time to dry but otherwise was very happy to have that service available. There is a subway near by but looks hidden if you don't know where to look. We were able to walk to nearby shops. Rooms were super small.. but other wise if price was good might stay again.
