We stayed at this hotel the first night we arrived in Tokyo and the last two nights prior to returning home to Seattle. The cost was relatively inexpensive, 9000 yen/night (double), including taxes and a westen & Japanese breakfast buffet. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Toei Asakusa line and about a 15 minute walk from the Tokyo Metro Ginza line. There is a Kinsei limited express train from Narita to the Askusa station. It costs 1240 yen and takes about an hour to reach Asakusa. The trains run about every 40 minutes. The direct train stops running around 5:30 pm so you will have to transfer to the Toei Asakusa line at Aoto. The day after we arrived, we took the Ginza line to the JR Ueno station to connect with a shinkansen train to Hiroshima. On our trip home, we used this same subway line to visit the Imperial gardens (160 yen) and the Ginza area.
The front desk also speaks english which was very helpful. Ask for a map of the Asakusa area when you check in. The rooms are clean and the furnishings are in good condition. Our room had LAN access (cable provided), a flat screen mounted on the wall, and a compact refridgerator. It was very cozy, but if you're just looking for a place to sleep, who cares. There is a microwave, and coin op washer & dryer (1) on the 12th floor and a restaurant on the premises that serves lunch and dinner after the buffet breakfast ends at 10:00am.
The Senso-ji temple is about a 15 minute walk north of the hotel (back towards the Tokyo Metro and Toei subway line). Just prior to the temple is an outdoor arcade selling all kinds of goods and food. About a 10 minute walk south of the hotel, on the main street that runs in front of the hotel, you'll find several inexpensive places to eat, including a McDonalds (no seating), along with a 7-11 and other convenience stores.
