The hotel is nicely situated. Close to subway station only 10 minutes away. We have a room facing the temple and Skytree but still very quiet. Room is small but functional. Very clean. Staffs are friendly. Lots of restaurants close by, all walking distance.

First visit to Japan travelling solo. Warm welcome. Clean room and helpful professional staff. Asakusa is a lovely area with interesting eateries and walkable sites. Still feels authentic and often was the only none Japanese eating. Next to Senso Ji shrine. Lovely older man on reception spoke good English .

This is a very clean and nice smallish hotel in Asakusa right next to the temples. What really sets the place apart is the attitude of all the staff - they are extremely helpful and accommodating. Hotel is also very easy to reach by train from Narita and it is surrounded by very good sushi and tempura restaurants. Rooms are... More

Coin laundry is a value added service which is convenient. I love their breakfast spread that has nice local selection including my favourite ochazukue, which it is one of... More

Very clean and spacious to fit 2 large open suitcases. If you're travelling from Tokyo Station, I would recommend catching the trains to the tsukuba station. Anther tip, look at the... More

We only stayed in asakusa 1 night but would definitely recommend this hotel if you are wanting to stay in asakusa. We spend the last 3 days in shibuya but if you are looking for a nice... More

Booked online the day prior and it was great. Small rooms in the Japanese tradition but a window we could open and clean and modern interior. Well located a short stroll from the shrine and other shops. Cafe on the ground floor. We loved it. Free wifi in room.

I stayed here for one night en route from Hiroshima to London. The hotel was chosen by a Japanese colleague who had stayed at the Richmond before. It was an excellent choice - 10 minutes on foot from a station on the Haneda airport line; modern, quiet, comfortable and with an excellent breakfast choice. The room wasn't large and I... 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.
