I highly recommend this hotel!


If you want to stay in Asakusa, then this is the place. Fantastic location, great friendly staff (although not much English), and overall great facility. It needs to be noted that this is not a hostel and has no backpacker vibe, so meeting other travelers is unlikely, otherwise top marks in every category. Also very easy to get to from the airport via the subway.

Thank you for your comment. We feel happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us.  Our hotel is one of the nearest to Asakusa station and the big Kaminarimon gate. Also, we have many Japanese traditional places to eat at near the hotel. Therefore, there is no problem looking for places to eat out. We look forward to serving you again!!


Fantastic hostel. Great staff, always friendly and location could not be beat. They even gave us a Christmas present!

Excellent location! Not just for Senso-ji temple but also for shops & two metro stations nearby. The place itself is pretty good atmosphere, not as charming as Homeikan, but Homeikan's location is inconvenient. Staff were extremely helpful (though only one of them spoke decent English, so you'd better know at least a little Japanese), and wifi / internet was good.

Thank you for your review. Our hotel is very close to the station and the entrance of Kaminarimon gate. Also, there are many places nearby to go sightseeing or shopping for traditional Japanese souvenirs. Though, we have few fluent English speakers, we will do our best in our English. We hope you will visit Japan soon and will be delighted to serve you.
