be sure to reserve a room facing the river. we were surprised to see the great view of skytree and the river promenade. it's a short walk to the ginza line but the asakusa line is a bit further. they didn't have an english speaking staff but they were still helpful in getting us a taxi to take us to...

We've been staying at Dormy Inn's for the last few trips to Japan and enjoy the food and amenities. This Dormy inn is an Express - which I didn't understand at first, but I think to mean that their breakfast is odd in that you have to preselect the day before whether you'd like Western or Japanese breakfast. Western breakfast... More

Location is good, near the Asakusa metro station. There are departmental stores, shops, restaurants around the areas. And is walking distance to Asakusa Temple, shopping areas, etc. The room was small but consider comfortable. The breakfast was fine, you can choose the main course i.e. Japanese or Western, other side dishes are at buffer counter. The good thing is the... More

Agree with many of the other reviews here and the location is excellent being a few meters from the metro entrance. Good breakfast and the very small room was clean and well equipped with all you will need. The baths and footspar are outside on the top floor. I didn't find the service was good with indifference from some reception... More

Quiet, comfortable hotel. The room was small but quite comfortable. The hotel is 1/2 block from the Asakusa metro station. The breakfast was fine, and there is an onsen on the top floor with a view of the river. The staff were all very helpful.

I liked the convenience of this location, the staff were friendly and efficient, the breakfast was great. Downside was the smell of stale cigarettes and the lack of soundproofing. I was next door to a snorer so the noise, and the smell of old cigarettes, really spoiled my sleep. Could also have done without the thick duvet. A blanket and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Dormy Inn for four nights this past August. We stayed in a non-smoking double room with a view of the Sky Tower and overlooking the river! The room was tight but who is there to stay in a room when you are in Tokyo? We managed. The room was clean and efficient as... More

I have to confess that I have a soft spot for the Dormy Inn hotel chain (beginning with its name!). I have now stayed in three different Dormy Inn hotels, and although there are small variations, the basic facilities are the same: small but extra-clean and well-equipped room, and an onsen on the top floor! The Asakusa Dormy inn is... More

We spent two nights at the Dormy Inn Express at the end of our trip to get a taste of the Asakusa neighborhood. The hotel exterior and hallways look a little rundown, and the rooms are pretty basic (although certainly not the smallest we stayed in on our visit). But, there were lots of nice surprises, like the small balcony... More

This was easy to access from Haneda airport. It's close to the subway stations and there are some sights within walking distance. I chose a balcony room, but that was strictly standing room for one! The river view was pleasant, nevertheless. The baths were quite lovely, especially the outdoor foot spa. Breakfast is a choice of Japanese, Western or vege.... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
