The hotel was clean and convenient, with less than a 5 minute walk to both the Asakusa-bashi JR and Tokyo Metro station. It is actually also about ~7-10 minute walk to the Akihabara district, and 2 subway stops from Asakusa station, which are two regions of Tokyo that is definitely worth checking out. There is also a Lawson convenience store connected to the hotel lobby.
I was able to hear the JR station's announcements and rail noises faintly from the hallway of the hotel on the 11F, but it was not loud or distracting enough to hamper my stay. As par usual of Japanese business hotel, the room was not big, but it was sufficient. There is no wifi in the rooms, so make sure you have a device that can take an Ethernet cable if you want to use the included Internet services. There are also free laundry machines and dryers (3x) that guests can use, and you can buy a packet of detergent for 100 yen.
The staff was very professional. We arrived in late, at around midnight, when check-in was suppose to end at 11p, but the front was still fully staffed until we were able settle in comfortably. English was a bit limited, but between hand language and a bit of help from Google Translate, we were able to get by.
