If you get the right room you have a great view to the city and tower. The larger rooms are spacious, well lit and can notice the ‘premier’ side of the Richmond brand but other smaller rooms are fairly standard. Staff works efficiently and hotel is in great location but room to room quality varies a lot
RICHMOND HOTEL PREMIER ASAKUSA Richmond Hotel Premier Asakusa is a business hotel with easy access, located in the center of Asakusa, a popular tourist destination in Tokyo. As the guest rooms go up from the 5th floors to the upper floors, the view from the window is a great location with a panoramic view of Tokyo Skytree and Sensoji Temple.

Being a Richmond Hotel Member, I am used to their certain level of no frills (but in a good way): centrally located, good value and very simple and clean rooms with everything you *need* - including facial amenities at request. The Richmond Hotel Premier Asakusa International was that and more. The view from our room was a picturesque, facing Sensoji and the Skytree. It was surprisingly spacious, especially for Tokyo. The only issue I had was with a part of the service, which was probably an individual issue - one that I've already contacted them on and shouldn't really apply to other travelers. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.
The hotel is in a prime location off pedestrianised areas with many cafes and shops. The lift from the street entrance takes you to level 5 at the reception. The foyer and everywhere is very clean and modern. We had a good view of the Skytree from our window. The room was clean with vanity unit, walk in shower and very comfortable beds and pillows. It was a good place to stay as central to many places of interest and a 15/20 minute walk to Skytree. We did not eat at the Inn however and sampled authentic Japanese food at a nearby restaurant. It is a good place to stay.
We stayed here for our last night in Japan. Very comfortable and easy to walk around at night and find dinner. The temple is very interesting. In terms of our flight home the next morning the hotel does not offer a airport shuttle however the trip to the airport is a easy one hour journey (Subway 3 stops to Ueno, Airport Skyliner). Note JR Passes do not work on the Skyliner and you buy a separate relatively cheap one way ticket.
We enjoyed two stays at this Hotel in December 2019 and again in January 2020. We have been travelling regularly to Tokyo for many years and this Hotel I must say was a pleasant experience all round and will become our regular stopover in Tokyo. Relatively new Hotel in a fantastic location right in the heart of Asakusa - rooms - you get what you pay for in terms of space. The corner room is highly recommended. The breakfast room here is well worth the investment or better still book your room with breakfast because it is absolutely excellent. Fantastic place highly recommended and we will be back again later this year.
We usually stay here when we go to Japan lately, Asakusa is a great area close to Ueno where there is a shinkansen station. The hotel has lots of restaurants near by, located in the same building as great shops/food. The front staff are all very nice, professional and helpful. The rooms are good, comfortable big beds etc. Great breakfast too.
I like the Richmond Premier International Hotel in Asakusa mostly because of its clean rooms and location. The rooms are Japanese style but not as small as some of the other hotels in the area. They also have many of the little conveniences like a room safe, iron and ironing board, bathtub, and a mobile smartphone you can use locally. Staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. They have a very good breakfast buffet and several restaurants located on the 4th floor of the hotel.
Travelling with my elderly parents and 2 kids (9 and 5). Booked 2 rooms - one for the kids and I and the other for my parents. The room allocated to the kids and I was very small and had just one small double bed. No roll away - not that there was room for one. How are 2 kids and a parent meant to sleep in one double bed? How did the system permit such a booking? I had little choice but to upgrade at a significant further cost. It was also disappointing that the 4 staff at reception watched as we struggled with our luggage. No offer to help; they just stood there and watched. The hotel is in a great location. Shame about the service and lack of transparency.
Great hotel in Asakusa close to street markets, restaurants and subway. Amazing views of the Sky Tree and Senso-ji Temple from our room. The room was a reasonable size for Tokyo but we did elect to have a twin room as it’s bigger than a double room. Breakfast was a good mix of Japanese and Western fare. Staff were polite and helpful at all times. Will definitely stay here again.
