Ryokan Asakusa Mikawaya Honten is a traditional style guest house (ryokan) between and in walking distance to Asakusa subway station and Senso-ji Temple. Like the other reviewers have mentioned there's a curfew, and you leave your room key with staff, upon leaving for the day. When I was there, it was hard to find, no external English sign. But the...

The location was great however it was hard to find this place at first. Luckily, I recognized the front looking of this hotel from website. The lady at the checkin desk was very kind. Even though, she told us the front door will be closed by 10 pm, she still waits for us (other guests) to come back at night...

We spent 2 nights here in a tatami room. It's close to the very busy Nakamise-dori but it gets very quiet at night, which usually is when we get back anyway so I don't know if noise level is manageable during daytime. Our room was pretty spacious, compared to typical hotel rooms in Tokyo, maybe because it can take up...

This is a ryokan, Japanese style inn, where you sleep on the floor. It is a small room, but if you are only here to sleep, it is adequate. What bothered me the most was that we were on the 4th floor (Room 403) next to a "smoking room". We were given a "non-smoking room" but you could still smell...

The property is located just steps from the hustle and bustle of the Sensoji temple area in Asakusa. Despite that, it was relatively quiet in my room on the 4th floor. The rooms and bathroom are a tad small, but that is not unexpected in Japan. There is a vending machine, along with free coffee and tea in the lobby....

We booked Mikawaya Hotel for a tradition Ryokan experience. While you get to sleep on the ground, and that was part of experience, the room was quite small. There is a little table where I imagine you would eat, or have tea or something, but it was so small you could not use it. Nor do you get the hospitality...

The location near Asakusa is great but the rooms are pretty cramped, and for the money, I felt the value was just OK. One word of advice: there is a smoking room on the 4th floor (maybe on other floors too, not sure). We had the room right next to it and even though we had a Non-smoking room, we...

Recently stayed for 3 nights. I was expecting a much more smaller room given the room size shown on Agoda but maybe because the room has minimal and compact furniture it seemed much more spacious. It is very clean and has big bottles of toiletries rather than those tiny packages. Staff is very friendly, speak English. I had a problem...

Ryokan Asakusa Mikayawa is a good place to be your first traditional Japanese accommodation, the location is strategically located near the perennially tourists-packed Nakamise-dori & Senso-Ji! It's very easy to reach here from subway station, which is just 5 minute walk away, countless restaurants and souvenir shops in proximity, don't forget to try the famous tempura restaurant nearby. Also...with subway...

The guest house is located right in the atmospheric temple and shopping district of Asakusa. It's easy to find and about 200m from the train station. Shopping and cultural attractions start right away when you leave the comfortable inn. There tourist centre (with computers and Internet for free) is very close, too. Rooms are Japanese or Western style, have baths...
