Efficient friendly English speaking check in staff.
Room as described - everthing worked.
Single room had a big bed although it took up most of the space.
2 minutes from Underground train.
Internet worked perfectly.
I would stay here again.
An older looking hotel with a small simple reception, original tiles and features and has good bedrooms. It is very close to the Ginza and Higashi Ginza subway stations. Asakusa for Senso-ji is only a few stops on the Higashi Ginza line. The staff were very helpful and there always seemed to be an English speaker available. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space for suitcases. There was even a small wardrobe. We asked for extra pillows and they arrived very quickly. There were loads of places very close for coffee and breakfast first thing. On our last evening we found a restaurant opposite the hotel called Tofuro advertising 'Edo' food. The menu looked good, but when we took the lift down to B2, the place was just amazing! It was like walking out into an old Edo street, with reconstructed buildings housing the tables on different levels (a bit like the Shambles in York museum). We were really pleased with our food, and loved the fact that the Japanese kids there were just as amazed as us! The hotel is a 10 min taxi ride to the T-Cat for the Limousine bus to Narita.
stayed on 19th May 2014 with a friend for 70usd/night, 1min walk to exit 2 tawaramachi station on ginza line (G17), reasonable space of room for japan standard, clean room, excellent power shower, very comfy pillow and mattress. they kept our luggage after check out. 10-15min walk to sensoji temple Receptionist very helpful & try their best to make us understand their english. will come back to this hotel for next japan trip. Highly recommended
The hotel staff was very helpful upon check in was given maps of the area and told of very good resturants close to hotel to go to and where the subway stops are. Needed to mail a package to someone and was provided with box and label written in japanese by a very helpful front desk. very nice resturants in hotel also. would recommend this hotel for location and very good staff.
