Modern hotel, one of the best we stayed in in Tokyo, a handy area with lots of cafe and shops, and convenient for trains, and the hotel is modern and has larger rooms than we found elsewhere. There is a nice buffet breakfast and the place was very clean and the staff extremely helpful. Can't really fault it and would... More

It indeed qualifies as an international chain! The location is near one of the most famous sites in Tokyo, i.e., Senso-ji, and it takes a 7-minute walk from Asakusa station (the Metro system). Its facade and lobby conveys the image of elegance and tidiness. The staff are kind and can speak good English. The room has got nothing to complain... More

I stayed ten nights here for a business trip to Tokyo in December, and really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Upon check-in, the staff gave us the a box of complimentary cosmetic products to choose from, including bath salts and hair products. The rooms are a bit small, and they are clean, new, and comfortable. The location is great;... More

I liked the hotel very much. I stayed here for 5 nights. The Asakusa area with the temple nearby and the subway station a 10 minute walk made it a good location. I stayed in a single room. It was a bit difficult to find a place for my suitcase, but the room was quite big for a single person.... More

Spent 6 nights last November in the end of my 3 seek trip through Japan and really enjoyed it. The Hotel is new and it shows, everything is sparkling. I booked one of the cheapest rooms and was really surprised by it's size. For Japan it is huge, I was not lacking for space and even though I was solo... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of Japan. The room was fine, if not a little small. It is a little further away from central Tokyo but the Asakusa area is wonderful for exploring and offers lots of nice food and entertainment. The room had a fridge which was good for storing water and snacks.... More

We spent the last night of 2014 at this lovely hotel and it paid off. We took limousine bus directly from Haneda airport and got off at Asakusa View Hotel, within 5 mins walk to reach the Richmond. There are many restaurants around with reasonable price and very close to famous Senso-ji. The staff can speak good English, we are... More

You don't get a big room at the Richmond hotels, but this one in Asakusa served my wife and I plus 3 year old son perfectly fine for a night. What you do get is great service, a perfect location next to Sensō-ji (the famous ancient Buddhist temple located 5 minutes walk from the hotel) and you're smack in the... More

We had booked a room for 2 nights and not disappointed. Room size okay compared with Japanese standard! All facilities and amenities provided. More soft touch for lady to select eg face sheet or origami gift which is so cute...staff is very friendly and English efficient! Breakfast is good! Location is just right before the temple.

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.
