“Modern Hotel in Excellent Location”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

There is direct train service from the Haneda airport and the station is short walk to the hotel and famed Sensoji Temple. The are many restaurants and stores nearby. The hotel is new and rooms are comfortable. The in-room WIFI works really well. It will be really ideal if more variety of food can be offered at breakfast.

I stayed at the hotel an overnight in late July 2013. The hotel is located in front of Kaminari-mon street nearby "Kaminari-mon" which is one of the very famous spot in Japan . My stayed comfortable, clean, quiet and wide guest room was located at the north-east corner on the 6th floor. The room has two exellent beds, small japanese bathroom and partially wide view of Asakusa. Though I could watch Sensouji temple, unfortunately couldn't watch Tokyo Sky Tree in my stayed room. But, I could watch it at 13th floor reception desk and dinning facility or 14th floor public terrace. Western type breakfast was very good. We can select eggs benedict or scrambled egg. Fresh vegetables, fruits, bakeries, frand drink was buffet service. The hotel was very clean, and staff was very kindly with smile. I recommend with confidence the hotel is one of the best accommodations in Tokyo.

Room Tip: I recommend to you reserving scenic room as same as my stayed room on higher floor by web site as ea...

We stayed in the Gate for two nights in July 2013 as part of a longer trip.
We were impressed by the styling and the service, though it doesn't offer a full range of services (no room service, for instance).
Staff were efficient and happy to help us organise restaurant and bar bookings.
We would stay at the Gate again.

My wife and I stayed at The Gate Hotel on our recent trip to Tokyo and were amazed by the excellent service at the hotel. The hotel staff helped us find our way around the city and even upgraded us to a beautiful suite in honor of our recent wedding! The room was stunning! The restaurant and rooftop at The Gate are both amazing and it's very well located. We had a great time here.

This hotel is very fresh and new! the rooms are larger than anticipated and very comfortable. The Staff is excellent! Restaurant is very good quality and open 24 hours albeit with a somewhat limited range. However, you can walk to many food options and Asakusa station just 2 blocks away. Breakfast on the 13th floor outside deck was a treat. The lobby is also on 13 with a nice lounge area and excellent views.

This hotel opened last year and everything is first class. A shower to die for,a very comfortable bed,a large room and a host of electrical outlets for all my chargers. The service staff was very friendly; we had one problem with the TV (CNN with Japanese voice over) and it was fixed quickly. The hotel is located in one of the oldest section of Edo a fair distance from the city center but there is an underground station a few blocks away. There are a number of good restaurants across the street from the hotel and a well stocked grocery store next door. One half mile away is a street with a wide selection of kitchenware stores.

We were pleasantly surprised with the level of service at the Gate Hotel Kaminarimon. The staff is very friendly and the level of service is great. The hotel is located in Asakusa district, close to many sights, like Kaminarimon, SkyTree, etc. The hotel is just 3 minutes walk from the metro station " Asakusa" which is on a Ginza line which makes it very easy and convenient to navigate in the city. There are a lot of restaurants around and by the Gate there is a souvenir market.
Now more about hotel. The rooms are great and they have a modern design. The bathroom is great. The lobby of the hotel is fantastic ,it's located on the top floor and offers a great skyline view on Tokyo. The restaurant is also good, they have a very good breakfast. Myabe it's not the breakfast we are used to, but everything is extremely deliciouse, so tht's great start of the day to have a breakfast on a top of the hotel and enjoy the panoramic view. The restaurnat is perfect for dinner as well, and they have a great life music ( don't worry, just piano and a singer).
We were extremely pleased with the Gate Hotel nd will definetely recommend it to both business travellers and tourists.
