Recent guest reviews
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.
Friendly staff and the room was kept pretty clean. The amenities were always replenished each day when asked. Fridge was a bonus. It was quiet and there were lots of restaurants and shopping all around. There were a couple of supermarkets down the street and there were 3 train stations within 15 min walk. Sensoji Temple was right behind the hotel. The only thing is that he rooms were really really small; we were able to put 1 standard carry on size in the closet and was able to hang 4 pieces of clothing. Kept our one large luggage on the floor next to the bed and left the rest for walking space. We were fine staying as a couple for 10 days; but we're not picky ppl. We only needed a clean bathroom and bed. Maybe better for solo traveler if space is an issue.
I love the breakfast! Lots of variety and really like the monthly menu. As I stayed over the new year, I get to enjoy the special items for both months. The room itself is rather small, just like all hotel rooms in Tokyo in general. Nevertheless it is really enough space. It is clean, which is a critical point for me. And the amenities are superb. Water boiler, ice bucket, mini fridge, cups and glasses, hair clips, shower cap, hair dryer, toothbrush, comb, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and even facial foam. Service was really good. It is a pity that I missed the name but one of the receptionist guy was really sweet and helpful. The others were nice too but some have better command of English than others. Location is perfect too. Walking distance to several metro stations - tsukuba express asakusa station and ginza line tawaramachi. Lots of super market nearby. Senso-ji temple literally next door. Plenty of shops to please the eyes. There is even don quijote which means 24hrs shopping :p To make it even better, there is airport shuttle bus from Asakusa View hotel which is directly across the road. This is not a 5-stars hotel but after staying 9 nights, I can definitely recommend it.
Pros: Friendly staff Great location - its near to tx express asakusa and 7-11 Very very comfortable pillows Wifi not too bad Breakfast is pretty decent Clean rooms Cons Small toilets Small rooms, not enought space for luggages Expensive during peak seasons (xmas and new year) Will be back again!
Stayed for 3 nights. We found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. The room was small but clean and comfortable, we had large luggage which we could just put underneath the bed. Location was very good as it is a bit quieter and relaxed in Asakusa. Overall good
Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. Location fit my purpose very well. Business and sightseeing. it's very close to the train stations -take your pick which line. room is small but clean. laundromat was tricky because instructions are in Japanese. Staff is very courteous- the traditional Japanese way. Asakusa temple is very near.
The best thing about this hotel is the location on the edge of the Asakusa cultural area. The hotel itself has a friendly and helpful front desk. However it's downhill from there. Our twin room is very very small and rather weary. Worst of all its not particularly clean. The bathroom is tiny and is little more than a plastic capsule built in. I have never stayed in a hotel that needs a dehumidifier in the room, but this one buzzed away all night long. All a bit of a shame as there are obviously other much better alternatives.
The hotel location is very good. Near to supermarket and restaurant. Opposite the hotel there is a big hotel where you could get transport to airport Clean and the room is spacious. The only problem with the place is Wifi, very slow connection.
