Hotel Yanagibasi

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel Yanagibasi was a great value for the price. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, and the location was excellent. There is a Tokyo metro station as well as a JR station about five minutes from the hotel on foot. There are also a number of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The hotel does not offer much in the way of amenities, but there is free wifi available in the rooms. Overall, staying here was a great experience, and it is a fantastic option if you want an affordable hotel in Tokyo.

Second time staying here. Room is small, but clean. Great location and short walk to subway and jr rail. English speaking staff very courteous and helpful.

The hotel is very closely located to a train / Toei metro station, so getting to for example Asakusa or other parts of Tokyo is easy. Located in a very safe looking neighbourhood, with 2 24 hour supermarket within 1 minute walk. Hotel itself is quite small, but what to expect in Tokyo? The price tag was great, considering average price within Tokyo, but the size of the room was just barely OK. Huge refigerator in room is nice! All in all - this hotel is recommended, if you do what we did - getting up very early, and spending the whole day sightseeing, so just using the room for a bath and good nights sleep.

Near subway, convenient stores, restaurants. I will stay here again when I come back to Tokyo. Good price, room is a bit small but sufficient space for one person.

This place has everything I need! As i was traveling by myself , all I need was a clean bed , my own bathroom and in decent location . The room is not big( I don't expect a big room in Japan ). Nice and comfortable bed , hot water & the most I like was the location. Only 2 mins walk from the subway station , 5 mins from the JR . Restaurants all around the place , 7-11 right around the corner . Will definitely stay here again when I visit Tokyo .

Staff is very friendly. Close to subway and JR but make sure you study the subway system first or you will get confused. You can take subway directly from/to the airport (both Narita and Haneda) but again you need to understand the system first.

For the first time to Tokyo, Japan, we did know where to book. This is a budget hotel, with everything that comes along with it. There are train stations near, and stores and shopping. I must say the hotel was a Mom & Pop/ family type, as is the area. The area had local stores, street mall, and mom and pop restaurants that were pretty good and budget--in fact when I go to Tokyo again, I plan on visiting the area for food. My husband and I are larger than average. If you are large, this is not for you. You have to say excuse me, close doors, climb over stuff to get to everything. It is extra small. Even the doors are small. The bathroom is extra small. Everything about it was cumbersome. The bed sat low-low. Our room was by an alley way . . . where you can hear people walking . . . The staff however, were extra nice, gave one on one attention, and went out of their way to accommodate, and very helpful. Finding a hotel in Tokyo depends on your likes and what you are willing to give up (size is definitely a factor in most hotels from what I understand). Mom & pop didn't speak English, but their son did. Overall I would give it one raised eyebrow lol!

Make no mistake--this is a budget hotel. The room was very small--3m by 4m including tiny bath. However, the room was clean, A/C worked, location is convenient to a metro station, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Hardest part was finding the place: If you are on foot, use Exit A from Asakusabashi Station. You will be within 2 blocks if you show one of the locals the hotel name in Japanese, they can point you there.

The location is great and the room is reasonable (small but clean) within that price range. The hotel staffs all are good service and polite. Thank you!

The hotel is close to then city tram service, the staff are very helpful if your new to the area.

Hotel was good. Location is great,very closed to train station.Room was clean,but very small. We enjoy our stay in Tokyo and will recommend this hotel to everyone.

I like this hotel very much. Not only does the hotel offer a bargain lodging price, but it gets a great transportation position.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff is very nice and helped us plan our trips around Tokyo. The room was sparkling clean every day without fail. The location is great. We would like to stay here again. This is a business type hotel, I don't think there would be room for children.

I know it is in Tokyo, and I get what I paid for. But personally, I feel it is more depressing than staying in an average motel 6. For examples, There is only one small window, facing the exterior wall of neighbor's building only two feet away. The bedroom is not much bigger than the mattress itself. Location is convenient though.

this hotel was as expected. great value, it was clean and no frills. we didn't spend much time there. it was two beds and a shower.

Hotel was far beyond my expectations, the staff were super friendly, the room was clean and comfortable (felt like a 4-star room), breakfast in the mornings were fun and tasty and it's a convenient 20m walk from the Tokyo station.

I like yanagibasi hotel, the staff is friendly and kind for help. there is a 24hr supermarket and lawson that you can buy some food and midnight snack. it's so convenient that I will go back at April.

The Staff's amenity is great and friendly. Although the room is not so wide we feel cozy indeed. There is some restaurants and 24hr supermarket beside. It's so convenient that we will go back next Tokyo travel.

This place is perfect for the budget traveler. It was comfortable, clean and the staff was very helpful. The price was great for Tokyo and for being only 10 minutes by train away from some other major stations. I would definitely stay here again.

For the price, it doesn't get much better. Sure the rooms are small, but it's just somewhere to sleep. Direct access to both airports via subway and easy access to anywhere else with 2 nearby stations. Very friendly staff add to a pleasant stay. Would definitely stay here again.
