Arrived at the blue wave inn with my family. We had booked 2 semi-double rooms for 5 nights. After only one night stay we had to book another hotel (even though we had paid upfront for the five nights). The rooms are very small to the point I was getting claustrophobic. There was one hanger on a wall to hang... More

Didn't hear more than a couple of footsteps over two nights which is pretty impressive, otherwise it was pretty average. Bed fine, space efficient (small but not tiny), compact functional bathroom. Very close to beautiful temple complex with bustling market. Easy walk to subway station on the Ginza line.

The Hotel is located in the middle of Asakusa very well connected to stations (Tokyo Metro). The area is one of the oldest in town and from the window fo our room we could see Senso Ji temple. There are a lot of shops nearby and Tokyo Sky Tree Tower is just around the corner. The rooms are a bit... More

Perfect location, wonderful room, lovely staff - bike hire too! Close to Sensoji temple, the outdoor markets and Tokyo Skytree. Also, if you walk to the top of the street, past the hotel, and across the road there is a lovely cat cafe! Close to Ueno as well, which is fantastic for a night out. A great hotel, at a... More

This was the 2nd time staying here. Right behind the hotel is the temple, looks amazing all the time. The hotel is like 5 minutes from the Sky tree line station and the Ginza line station. Another 2 minutes up the road and its the Asakusa subway station. So its not too far. The rooms were clean every morning! But... More

Stayed here for three nights in total, staff were friendly and helpful, great location with plenty to see and do in Asakusa, we could see the Tokyo skytree from our window, the breakfast buffet was ok, the room was clean and modern. Don't expect the Ritz experience and you'll be pretty satisfied.

One person only feel it being small also! Very bad air conditioning! We stayed there in Nov. but the heat in room cannot be controlled that the room... More

We stayed here in November and we're pleasantly surprised by the great location (Senso-Ji Temple is about a two minute walk away!). We were greeted by the very polite hotel staff and shown to our room. Yes the rooms here are small but we expected that for Japan. That said the rooms are incredibly clean and have everything you need... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights after booking through hotwire. Out was about 70usd for both of us but we got one of those semi double beds which was a little small. The room is small also. Nice and quiet and in cool party of town.

Convenient and value for money place to stay. Booked 5 nights in a non-smoking room via laterooms.com.au and got a great rate (about AUD$60/night). On arrival was given a smoking room as there were no more non-smoking rooms but it wasn't that bad as the ventilation seemed adequate. Size was pretty good considering this is Japan! Not too far from... More
