    Superb

    It has very good location - next to the temple and metro station. The rooms are quite big and there's a lot of restaurants around to go out. It is good value for money for Tokyo stay.

    There's no wifi in the room, it's available only in the lobby, which is small and poor and offers no privacy. In the evenings was full with people sitting on the floor and chatting on skype.

    We booked a non-smoking room and we got a smoking one. When we complained they did blame it on Booking !

    Efficient staff, clean rooms.

    Booked a small double room but this is the narrowest bed for two that I've ever slept on. No english channels on tv but it applies to all the other hotels I've stayed in Japan.

    Good

    I like it that the hotel is near the food areas and the surrounding area is pretty safe. We saw a few girls walking on the streets alone at night.

    We stayed in the small double room and the room is extremely small. I had learned from the description prior to booking that the room is small, however this is not what we had expected. The furnitures are huge (tables) and took up so much space that we couldn't open up 2 medium sized luggages fully. We stayed for 4 nights and moved to another hotel at Ueno which we were glad that we did. The hotel is not very close to the train station. It's a rather long walk to the hotel from the Asakusa train station and if you are lugging many luggages or are travelling with kids, that could be a chore. We had booked for non-smoking room but was given a smoking room. Thank goodness, there was no cigarettes smell. Our room was rather dusty and I found myself coughing after mins of staying in the room. I left my mobile phone on the bed's headboard and within 5 minutes, specks of dust were making themselves comfortable on my handphone screen. The air-conditioner also take a long time to start up. The toiletries they provided fall short of our expectations. There was no shower caps, and combs and cotton buds have to be obtained at the hotel lobby (and the cotton buds were always out first and we didn't find them being replenished). This is unlike the hotel that we stayed at Ueno which made us feel welcomed and at ease and which I shall provide my review for that hotel elsewhere. The toilet is really small but the taps (faucets) are very advanced. The temperature of the water comes out just nice and you can adjust the heat with ease. That was the only thing I was impressed with. There was no coin laundry service (it would be good if there is one) and the dryer they provided have no temperature control. The staff spoke basic English but appeared to be aloof.

    The hotel is close to Asakusa shrine and Nakamise dori, 5 minutes walk.The room was clean and quite, the windows overlook Sky tree (we were on the 10th floor). Very good breakfast - a lot of different dishes.

    Exceptional

    location is good. Very close to Asakusa temple. The room is very clean and comfortable.

    The room is a little small. But I think every hotel in Tokyo has the same problem.

    Good clean comfortable rooms.

    My only gripe would have to be there was not enough seating in the lobby for the WiFi use.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    The location is excellent, near Asakusa St., a shopping street, restaurants and convinence stores. The room was comfotable and clean. The staff was attentive.

    The lobby has not a sitting place and it was uncomfortable to use it as a meeting place or the use of the wireless internet.

    Superb

    The room was small for two, but we managed with it just fine. The room was really clean and otherwice nice. Only odd thing was that the window as blurred and you couldn't even open it to see the view outside. The area is little bit more expencive Tokyo, you cannot find so easily cheap places to eat. The public transportation is also little bit trickier coz you have to change between subway and train connections and that makes the trip a bit more expencive as travelling only by subway or by train. Hotel staff was nice, but didn't really speak any english.
