The staff were very kind and helpful, the location was pretty convenient as well. I woke up early (around 6 am) to take pictures of Sensoji and the Kaminarimon, and the staff member at the desk was very nice about it. The hotel is very close to the subway stations for the Asakusa, Ginza, and Tobu lines, so it was easy to get to other parts of Tokyo to sightsee as well. I would stay here again.

Awesome little budget hotel. The building is kind of cool in a weird 80's kind of way, but the real appeal is the location and the staff. Both are awesome. It's clean, and great in general.

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 !!!!
