very nice location!


Unfortunately, we couldn't go to Japan and had to cancel last minute. I had to email and call them several times about some issues. They were really quick to respond and their emails were in well-written English. The staff were really kind and understanding about our situation and helped us cancel our reservation with ease. P.S. they wouldn't let me submit a review without rating everything. Their "staff" rating is the only one I can answer truthfully.

The Kaminarimon hotel was perfect for our first night in Tokyo. The location was very handy and the staff so nice. We could not ask for a cleaner place. Highly recommended !!!!


this hotel is soo good value and friendly, and you are right in the heart of asakusa literally 2 metres from the kaminarimon gates! top marks


The best thing of the hotel was the location, very close to tube station. I was expecting more, considering the price. The hotel has no character and lacks a nice atmosphere. I really like the Japanese style rooms but the room at this hotel lacks character, it wasn't particularly nice.


Curfew at 12


The location of the hotel was excellent, but customers would find it easier if there were better directions to the hotel form the train station. It would also be great for your customers if they had the option to use the shower (not the bath) in the shared bathroom once they arrive. Most customers will have travelled for a long time and would like to freshen up. I think allowing this would make customers grade this hotel better. Other than this, the hotel was very nice and it was nice to stay.


My only complaint was the women's common bath was very small and not very hot. The staff was wonderful and even moved our luggage for us when we had to change rooms (planned move we knew about ahead of time when booking). The private bath Japanese style room i highly recommend. GREAT location right next to the temple.

Thank you for your review. Our hotel is very easy to locate and access for those who have a lot of lugguage. Much appologies for the bath water temperature. We will try our best in satisfying all guests. We hope you will come visit Japan again and to serve you soon.
