Location is excellent, literally across the road from Akihabara train station. Rooms are on par with general hotel rooms in Japan (as a westerner this felt small, compared to western hotels, but that was consistent across Japan). Rooms and bathroom were very clean and in great condition. Bathroom was clean and water was nice an hot, bathtub actually fitted me in it too.
Only problems were: The bed was harder than average, Japanese hotel beds always seem to be a little hard, but this was a little harder than average. The English channels on the TV were not working most of the time, not a large issue but slightly annoying.
Compared to the Gracery in Ginza (same hotel group), the Gracery feels a little nicer, but also a little pricer, and the gap was consistent with the price. The Gracey is also not nearly as well located.
Would definitely choose to stay again.

First hotel we stayed in for our trip to japan and a great start. The rooms are fairly small compared to western hotels however this does not overshadow the comfort and cleanliness of the room and the great staff. The location is also perfect in akihabara, not too far from the train station (about 3 mins walk) and near the electric town of akihabara. The only shock we got was that the bathroom has a giant glass window looking into the rest of the room but dont worry there is a giant blind to cover it.
The staff were really friendly and even supply free bottles of water in your room, a nice little touch.

This hotel is great as far as location. A minute walk to the station, and just two minutes to Akibahara. Staff is great, hotel is in great condition, but of all the hotels I stayed at in Japan for a two week stay, this was the smallest. While not inconveniently small, small enough that we were glad we stayed only one night.
All in all I would recommend this hotel, because it was a very nice hotel, with great staff, and location.
Good free coffee, iced tea, good value for breakfast and nice touch for the free ramen at night.
Great hot tub on the top floor, room is small but all amenities are provided.
Will definitely stay here again.

Located in a truly fascinating part of this bright and bustling city, the Dormy Inn Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan offers guests …More
Location: 15 minutes walk from the Keisei Ueno station (fastest transportation to/from Narita Airport). Primarily a residential area, extremely convenient location, 3 minutes walk to subway station which takes you to just about every where in Tokyo. 15 minutes walk to Akihabara. Inexpensive dining places, a 7-11 a convenient store/market and a great sushi take-out place within 2 blocks.
Room: extremely small, but very clean. The bed and pillows are VERY HARD and could be quite uncomfortable for a skinny person like me if sleep on the side (too much pressure on the bony parts of my body).
Bathroom: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand cream, hair brush, razor, q-tips and hair-dryer are provided.
Internet access: As of Mar 20 2015, WIFI is available in all rooms and the lobby.
Breakfast/Food: meat, salad, egg and various kinds of bread, plus coffee, milk and orange juice. Served in the front lobby (no restaurant). Vending machines (pop, canned coffee, beer etc) and a microwave available at the ground level.
Overall: love everything about the hotel, except the bed and the pillow, but all the other good things outweigh it so I am determine to stay here again the next time I'm in Tokyo.
For the reasonable price I paid I have no complaints. For what it is, Hotel Yanagibasi delivers on expectations. Super close the Asakusabashi station. Go out exit A-1 and turn left and walk straights. It is down a side street off the main road so when you get to the Sunkust convenience store turn left and walk down the street. The hotel will be on your right.
"Convenient location at a reasonable price for Toky"
This is a basic Japanese business hotel. After staying there we now realise what this means. The rooms are tiny and the bathrooms tinier, but they have everything you need - face towel, bath towel, toothbrush and toothpaste, razor, toiletries, bath mat, decent bedding, a yukata and slippers for each person, fridge, hotplate for boiling water, cups and teabags. Some even have a balcony (tiny). So long as you make up your mind that you will manouvre yourself into the gaps, it's ok.
The biggest discomfort is the stink of cigarette smoke that lingers everywhere.
Shoppers looking for the newest technical gadgets, DVDs, and videogames flock to Akihabara, Tokyo’s glittering “Electric Town.” The bustling streets around Akihabara Station house thousands of computer and electronics shops, several multi-floor classic arcades, and a giant seven-floor anime store. The area is popular with anime fans that crowd the streets on weekends wearing colorful costumes.
