I was surprised just how close the hotel was from Asakusa subway (about 1 minute walk!). I arriving from Tokyo station, it's a train ride to Ueno, followedy by 3 stops on the subway. The hotel is nicely decorated and has a nice vibe and helpful staff. We stayed here for our last night in Tokyo and it was really... More

The hotel is located right at the Asakusa Temple door. The Metro is a few steps away and lots of restaurants and groceries nearby. Asakusa is a bit way east in Tokyo but if you want to be near Ginza, Tokyo Station, Ueno and Akihabara, this is a good hotel in that vicinity.

Had a fantastic stay at this place. The staff are lovely - very helpful, courteous and all had enough English that we managed just fine. The whole place is spotlessly clean - we've been traveling round Asia for 8 months and this is the cleanest place we've stayed. The wifi signal is good, there is also a laptop available for... More

We had booked a triple Japanese room but it turned out to be the same size as a double room with an extra mattress. And there was no room for our luggage. However, on complaining they gave us an extra single rom (without bathroom) for a nominal extra charge so in the end it worked out fine. The staff were... More

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Japan. Since Tokyo is a very crowded city, Japanese style hotel rooms in Tokyo are very small compared to many hotels worldwide. But we are glad you have enjoyed your stay after all. We hope to serve you again soon. More

If you want to have a taste of traditional Japanese style inns , this is the place to go. They have rooms with either an attached bathroom or rooms sharing a bathroom. You will sleep in a futon and will be provided with robes and slippers. The rooms are airconditioned though but expect to hear some level of noise from... More

Spent 7 nights in Tokyo and stayed here for 5 nights after a disastrous 2-night stay at a nearby hostel. This is a Ryokan style hotel. The hotel comes with rooms with and without bathrooms attached. Of course there is a difference in rate. However, the hotel does provide public bathroom for guests who opt for rooms without bathrooms. The... More

Comfortable and cozy. The staff are super friendly and polite, and speak at least a bit of English. Very traditional, so Westerners not used to the idea of sleeping on the floor and sharing bathrooms might have a hard time adjusting. Otherwise, great place right in the heart of Asakusa, so you're only a walk away from the train station,... More
