We stayed in 5 different hotels during a recent trip to Japan, and the Gate was hands down our favorite. Great location on main shopping street and near Temple in Asakusa, and easy to get to from at least 2 different subway lines, including one that goes directly to Haneda Airport. Lobby has floor-to-ceiling wrap-around views of the neighborhood, and... More

The employees are very nice. Location is perfect. But cleanness of the room should be improved. The carpet is a litte bit dirty. There are tea filth in the cups. Maybe you can see how the Disney Hotel clean their room. They are perfect in the room clean.

This hotel is perfect in every way. Just across the street from the Sensoji Temple Kaminarimon Gate and 2 minutes from the Ginza subway line. Plenty of places to eat and great pedestrian streets to wander any time of day. Asakusa is a wonderful area of Tokyo. The hotel is spotless and the room was large enough with a very... More

Hotel is located on main road where Kaminarimon gate is, only a few minutes walk from metro station. There is a supermarket just beside the hotel entrance and lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Room is quite spacy and well isolated from the busy street downstairs, bathroom is very clean and well equipped, The downside is no compliment mineral water... More

Location is great next to Asakusa subway and in front of temple entrance. Perfect room, spacious and clean, well equipped nice bathroom. Wifi mediocre, breakfast rather poor: no choice of cereals, no cheese, no salmon. Excellent orange juice, good croissants. Japanese breakfast seemed ok, western style should be adjusted.

Most excellent service, great room, quality linens, bathroom spacious, view spectacular! We ate at restaurant on lobby floor for dinner, friendly and lovely staff. Our luggage was handled effectively. All staff very well trained. Only wish the rooftop was open beyond 11pm!

The location is perfect for exploring Asakusa. Right across the street from the shrine, and tonnes of restaurants and shops in the vicinity. The rooms have a fresh and retro design. The rooms are also relatively roomy for Tokyo hotels. The only negative is that the rooms and decorated with dark carpet, wallpaper, etc, so dust really sticks out. The... More

There's a lot to like about the gate hotel as it's a nice modern hotel with a cracking view and great bar and roof terrace. Only down side is that after staying in a number of hotels during my visit in Japan, this was my least favourite, for the following reasons: 1. Location; I would say that this is situated... 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.
