First off, the location is incredible - literally steps from Senso-ji. This makes it a great place to stay especially if you are a first time visitor to Tokyo and want to see the main attractions - the skytree is also within walking distance. It was my third time in the city, so I knew my way around already, but I did enjoy walking away from the tourist places and finding new sides to Asakusa as a district. The staff members were fantastic. My room was a little dated, but super clean and had everything I needed. Endless eating/drinking options on the same street, and there's even a 7-11 inside the hotel. It's also within walking distance to Ueno Station too. If you enjoy walking and want a break away from the tourist vibe of Asakua, then I recommend walking along the banks of the Sumida river - steps from hotel - from Asakusa, heading south and enjoying the little known solitude that Tokyo can provide.…
I just spent 5 nights in a single room at their main building. I love the location and how it is close to everything in Asakusa. The room was soundproofed so I didn't get the street noise. The housekeeping was done by lovely elderly ladies who leave a bag of neatly folded towels and pyjamas at your door if you have a 'do not disturb' sign out. I didn't sleep very well as the duvet was a little dirty. They use a main duvet and line it with a bedsheet on its underside which means they don't wash the duvet and change only the sheet during room service. I found dust and hairs on the duvet so I requested for extra sheets to put between myself and the duvet. The management should seriously reconsider their bedding, especially for guests who are allergic/sensitive to dust. The front desk staff were helpful enough. Oddly, they refused my request to make a table reservation for a restaurant. I approached 2 staff members and they were adamant about not providing this service to guests. Finally, after much persuasion, I managed to get a lady to very reluctantly make a call to the restaurant. It was a very strange policy. I wish to thank a front desk staff - a young, bespectacled man- who assisted me in booking a taxi on 28 Jan, around 10:45pm and very very kindly took the trouble to take my luggage out in the pouring rain for the taxi. Overall, my one and only complaint is the bedding. Otherwise, I had a good experience and the location can't be beat.…
The only great thing about the Hotel is it's location. The breakfast was disappointing - choices as well as service. The restaurant was under staffed. We requested for a portable phone with wifi service but there was none. Pajamas was provided but it came in one size only -small. The heater in my room was not working and it was difficult to get help as the staff couldn't converse in English. Disappointed.
Affordable for a 4 day 3 night stay. If you'll be out late because of exploring and touring you'll be please to know they have a microwave you can use to heat or re-heat the food you bought before going in your room. Sufficient for your stay. They also understand English which is great if you don't know how to speak Japanese that much.
This somewhat dated but very clean comfortable hotel has a great location in Asakusa, just a few blocks from everything you want to see. Easy to find from Asakusa metro station, the staff is very friendly-they even offered me a choice of rooms. The onsen/spa in the basement is quite nice and the toiletries smell wonderful, like green tea/pine. Even the breakfast (included) was more than adequate. The room had a retro-style headboard with lights, clock, etc built right in. There's a little pot in the room for tea but also more than big enough to boil a couple of eggs. The window even opened (I was on the 5th floor) giving me a breath of fresh air in the morning. Would definately stay here again.
Stayed one night (due to Typhoon as flight got cancelled) and for the price paid, not really worth the money (room 501, main building). The Pros - good location, close to Subway/tourist attractions/river - Family Mart (open 24/7) within the building (very handy for typhoon situations when you need cup noodles as all restaurants close by are shut down...) - has a quasi-Onsen and Sauna (gender separated by timeslots, no tattoos allowed) - free coffee in the lobby in the morning and afternoon - very efficient checkin process and nice staff - free umbrella rental The cons - room itself was a bit outdated and pretty rundown (elements of bedframe tattered) - bathroom had 80s charme and sink was leaking so that every time we washed our hands, our feet got wet - thin walls (you might hear your neighbours)…
For the price you pay, you are treated to a comfortable and clean room. As a bonus they provide a cell phone with a data plan which is invaluable as it is awesome to use to get around Tokyo. They also provide pajama, towel & daily cleaning.
Lovely hotel. We travelled straight to hotel from Narita airport. Hotel is 5mins from Asakusa station so well situated to get around Tokyo. We had two rooms and both at front of hotel on 6th and 7th floors. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Rooms have hairdryer, tv, many plug points and more importantly usb points so no need for travel adapter! Staff were welcoming and we had a great 4 nights here. Definitely would return location is key and it's near the shrine, orange Street lots of eateries and shops within walking distance. Hotel has lots of amenities including vending machine, microwave, washing facilities and ladies only times at the onsen. Great place and will return!!
Great location , friendly welcome, helpful staff. Rooms were more than adequate. Breakfast was beyond expectations for a business type hotel, and good value. Although on a noisy road, soundproofing was very adequate. Hotel is quite Japanese in character, which is good for us but a US group seemed surprised at things like communal bathing etc. We took Keisei mainline from Narita-si and then changed at Alto for Asakusa station. 7 mins walk from there. Journeys from hotel used Tawaramachi station on Ginza metro, which has elevators in both directions.
Excellent and Central Location in Tokyo to Asakusa sites and walkable distance to Sumida River - during the sakura days, it is so so very pleasant and beautiful walk. The hotel is Very clean ( as all accommodations in Tokyo..), quiet and an area where close to these wonderful little food bars where you can have a lovely japanese meal and drink. Having stayed in various areas in Tokyo on previous trips, I feel the pricing is on point. Dont expect frilly as this suits and Highly recommended for those looking for a good pragmatic place to stay, personal and business travellers alike. I will stay again.
