Stayed for our first 3 nights in Japan. 10:30am after an all night flight from Australia arrived in the pouring rain and eventually found our way to this hotel which is a long walk from Asakusa Subway Station.Requested an early check in to allow us to change into dry clothes and were informed that it would cost us AU$225 for...

We stayed here for two nights as three friends on vacation. To start with it was a bit tricky to find for us since we looked in the window and it looked like a bar with all the lights turned off, we eventually tried the other door and figured out there was a small desk in the back that was... More

Rooms were clean, there is wifi, staff were friendly and can speak English well. However, this hotel is too far from the Asakusa station. Check in time was 4pm and check out was 10am. There is a Lawson convenience store across the road, and the neighbourhood looks quite safe.

This is my second visit to Tokyo and if only the previous hotel my friend and I stayed at weren't fully booked, we would've stayed there again (Rembrandt Inn Nishikasai). Don't get me wrong, our room was clean, the staff knows English but the girl who checked us in wasn't smiling and not very helpful. There weren't tourist info brochures... More

I noticed that it is rated as a 2 star hotel- it is the best 2 star hotel I'll probably ever go to. The staff can speak English and are polite and helpful. We arrived early before check in and the receptionist allowed us to leave our suitcases safely in the lobby until check in time. The hotel was a... More

...in the traditional area of Asakusa. Rooms are not so huge, but those ones located at the top floor have a nice view. Service is very essential, breakfast is not included. Some vending machines for drinks are located at floors.

The hotel is fine, you find everything you need, kind and honest staff, in a good area near Asakusa Station coming from and going back without transfer to both airports Narita and Haneda (look out the timetable, because not all the trains go to the airport, only appr. every 30 minutes!). Free wi-fi in the lobby. Easy to arrive, but... More

The hotel is located about 20 minutes from the train station, that's rather far if you are travelling with a suitcase (of course you are) and plan to walk. Advantages - it is a great hotel for visiting Tokyo Sky Tree and Sensó-ji. Those places are virtually at your doorstep. Rooms are small, simple but clean and the staff is... More

We aren't small and the room was cramped. The bed is not a double bed, but it has a very good mattress. There's nowhere for the person sleeping next to the wall to put anything, like water, and you have to crawl over your partner to go to the toilet.I hated the frosted window that you can't see out!
