We stayed in a twin room on the 13th floor with the Tokyo Skytree tower view. You can see the hotel from Kinshicho JR platform. Kinshicho JR station has a lift from the platform to the exit. We arrived from Narita Airport in the morning and left the luggage at the reception. When we returned to the hotel to check-in later, the suitcases were already delivered to the room. The room was quiet and clean. There were 2 pieces of chocolate, Japanese teabags and 2 tea cups, slippers, 2 toothbrushes and small tube of toothpaste, a hairbrush, wash cloth, razor, cottonbud, and a shower cap. There was an air purifier and a small fridge. The bathroom was Japanese style, which had a short and deep bath tub and tiled showering area with drainage. A basket to leave clothes outside the bathroom was provided. The toilet was separate with a warm seat and an electric device to wash bottom with warm jet of water if you want to use. Hence the washbasin is not in the bathroom. TV has an English language channel called CNN.. For guests in a hurry, there is an express check-out machine, where you put your room key and find out how much to pay if any. You can get Japanese yen from ATM in the convenience store in the basement. The beds are big, which makes less room to walk. Enough room for suitcases in the hall area of the room. Good layout/design.
"Great option for families or business travelers!"
The hotel offers a true Japanese experience with many western features including a large room and western bath. Bath toiletries are provided including shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap dispensers, toothpaste, toothbrush, hair brush, make up set with cotton pad and Q tip. Bath sponges are provided each day in lieu of washcloths. Four of us stayed very comfortably in a triple room which had two double beds and a twin. There are no English TV stations however there are Video On Demand movies available for $10/day.
The hotel location is close to the Ryogoku station which requires traveling one station to transfer to direct lines for the Tokyo and Shinjuku stations. The Edo Museum is very close by as well as the Sumo wrestling stadium. The hotel is also very close to Asakusa which has a fabulous temple and authentic shopping area.
Hotel offers Internet with a LAN cable so bring a wireless router if WiFi is needed for computers, tablets, cell phones, etc. If a three prong grounded plug is needed please bring an adapter.
Hotel staff do not speak a lot of English but are very anxious to help in any way possible.
Would highly recommend staying here!
The room was clean and with all the elements you need if you are traveling light (shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, razor, etc.). Also, it was very quiet. The staff speaks english, Great location, nearby subway lines and the beautiful area of Asakusa and Sky Tree.
Located adjacent to Kokugikan, this hotel is two blocks from the Edo-Tokyo Museum and 20 km (12 miles) from Disney Land.Each …More
Great hotel and very nice staff. They can speak some english but communication is not really required because everything was in good condition. Short distance to the subway station just exit A2 with a convenience store on the way back to the hotel.
This is a great hotel. It is only a block from the subway station and easy to get to.The rooms are average-sized by Japanese standards but have everything you need.
The best think about the hotel though is the staff who are incredibly friendly and helpful. It is owned and run by a really nice Japanese family. On a number of occasions they went out of their way to help me with planning various activities etc. Great Japanese hospitality.
