Nice basic hotel at a very good price. Rooms are clean and nice. Breakfast is excellent. Location is good, not centre of Tokyo for trips in the city, but very nice neighborhood with many very good local eateries nearby. Would recommend this hotel as basic very good stay at affordable price (around 110 euro/night)

This was our first hotel during our holiday in Japan and we realized afterwards how lucky we were to have such an amazing start. The location, with being so near the temple, is unbeatable and the local area has a sort of village feel, despite being in Tokyo. The staff were wonderful and the buffet breakfast always fantastic. Loved it!

The hotel was extremely clean, the staff were very helpful, (good English too), the restaurant served a bountiful buffet every morning with western and local cuisine, and the price was very reasonable. We looked at several other hotels in the Asakusa district after we arrived, and concluded that we chose the BEST. I highly recommend The Gate if you stay... More

Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms have all you need including hairdryer, good toiletries and TV. Quite a variety of Japanese foods for breakfast with some 'western' options. We were there in 'Golden week' and hotel seemed quite busy; breakfast room busy at all times but not a problem to wait a few minutes for a table. Close to... More

This is unequivocally an excellent hotel, and real value for money. In a great location, it has reasonably spacious rooms, comfortable beds, excellent free breakfasts, genuinely helpful reception staff (on all occasions) - and thus overall a splendid experience.

Nice hotel, very nice staff, what is rather common in Japan. Small room and a bit too claustrophobic bathroom, but both equipped well. The thing, which was the best was breakfast. Very good and we realy enjoyed it!

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

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.
