This was our first hotel when we touched down to Tokyo. After a close call of catching the last train into the city we found ourselves lost trying to navigate through town since the hotel was quite a walk from the Asakusa Metro stop. I was jetlagged and depressed at this point because we did not have GPS working on... More

If you don't like the caos and frenzy os Shinjuku and Shibuya, Taio district should be your choice to sleep here in Tokyo. Smile Hotel Asakusa is a great option. We chose it after an accurate selection. The position is very nice, you can easy get to Nakamise Dori, Senso-Ji, Sumida Park & River and many other attractions. Hotel itself... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice. Both times the stay was exactly what we expected. The rooms are on the small size, but no smaller than the average Japanese hotel room. They offer a breakfast, but if you're not accustomed to traditional Japanese breakfast, I'd skip it and go to the Lawson's across the street. It is a... More

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...

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

...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

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.
