Fairly small hotel in an excellent location, close to train station, to main street, to Starbucks (If must :-) ) . Rooms are small as expected but clean and comfortable. WiFi works perfect. Nice buffet breakfast

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are comfortable if a little on the small side with a reasonable shower room, fridge, TV etc and were cleaned to a high standard. All the staff we encountered were helpful and most had a good grasp of English. They were particularly helpful in filling out forms for luggage forwarding. The breakfast buffet... More

The hotel is in a neighborhood that's fun to explore on foot, and it overlooks one of Tokyo's most beautiful temples. I was fortunate to have views including Sensoji and the Tokyo Skytree from one window, and the abbot's garden from the other. It is near one end of the Ginza subway line, so you can always find a seat... More

We stayed that the Richmond Hotel Asakusa in Tokyo for 4 nights on a recent trip with a 1 year old with us and the service we got from this hotel was the best I have every received in the world. The only weakness for the hotel is that the rooms are quite small but having said that we managed... More

My reason for staying at Asakusa Richmond Hotel was that it appeared to be good value for money. I was not disappointed. The room was really nice and very decently sized. The service flawless and the adjacent (breakfast) restaurant really good. Having seen the rest of Tokyo I am also very pleased with the location. You are close to the... More

The hotel is clean and spacious with complete bathroom amenities. It is also conveniently located near Sensoji (less than 5-min walk) Shrine and Nakamise Street. Breakfast is great for just JPY1,000/person. They give free gifts for female guests which is an added extra point for this hotel. Most importantly they have free wifi inside the room. We rode a sky... More

I never expected this hotel to be so near the Sensoji Temple...maybe 100 mtrs away? I was billeted in this hotel on New Year's eve of 2014. I was able to experience the throve of worshipers going in and out of the temple. Revelers having fun at nearby eateries. There were so many food and souvenir vendors in the vicinity... More

This is a very good hotel in an excellent location. It is clean and comfortable. If you wanting tour tips and someone who speaks excellent English this hotel is NOT for you. It was however, incredibly reasonable.

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

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.
