“Home in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

Staying at the hotel, feeling greeted and treated as old friends. The Yanagibashi did well from the door man to the front desk, all the other staff members were friendly and helpful. Room rates are comparable with the better hotels in Tokyo. I would reccomend a junior suite as being very well furnished, comfortable in size and worth the price.

Yanagibashi is not exactly the most elegant hotel out there, and the rooms are (as is the case with many small hotels in Japan) only marginally bigger than it is necessary to accommodate two beds and a small desk, but is certainly worth its relatively low price. The service is polite and attentive, and the staff's command of English is surprisingly good. The location is also convenient, as it is only a short walk away from Asakusabashi station, which, in turn, is only one stop away from Akihabara. Overall, if you are low on cash or simply happen to be in the area and need a decent hotel straightaway, Yanagibashi should be on your check list.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

My stay here was okay but I would try another place next time.This is a "business" hotel and it is not that good if you want to meet other people.The first night I stayed I saw a HUGE roach in my room and they switched rooms for me with no problem. But after that I was apprehensive about staying there and checked my bags and bed constantly to make sure nothing came home with me. A security issue I had was when they let a tour guide I hired up to my room without my permission or notification.Not good for a single female traveling alone.Close to both the JR train, subway and convenience stores which is a plus. The room was clean, but very small, and about the size of a room on a cruise ship but who goes to Tokyo to stay in a room anyway. The free internet in the rooms was a plus also.

We shopped around a lot for accommodation in Tokyo and chose this place due to the low price and generally central location. During our stay we found the place was very clean and the staff had sufficient English skills and were very friendly. The rooms are obviously very small but you expect that in majority of places in Tokyo. There is a train station, cheap restaurants and shops all within very close walking distance which was great. Would stay here again.
