Compact and convenient

Posted 05-Apr-2014
Pros: Convenient and modern.
Cons: Air condition.
Location: Sensoji Temple, SkyTree and Tokyo Cruise...very nice to walk around.
i would rather call the rooms compact rather than small. i stayed in a twin room with what looks like two super single beds. it has all the basic facilities that suffice for me. i was also pleasantly surprised to see that they have rooms for pet owners where the walkway is cordoned, where pet cages were provided. it is also very near to the Tawaramachi station, and just about 10 mins walk away from the famous Sensoji Temple. many convenient stores around the vicinity too. the staff very very helpful as well to give me guides to the various tourists spots i was interested in. a couple of bummer - shower cubicle is a little not too clean, but bearable...and the A/C is centralized that auto adjust to outside temperature. the room got a little hot for us, so we turned of the A/C and opened the window to let the cool air in...cannot imagine summer though. i would definitely come back here if i get to go back to Tokyo...love love love this place

Not even comparable with a midrange Hostel

Posted 15-Jan-2014
This was a very disappointing experience to stay in a hotel in Tokyo where you don't even have soap or shampoo in your bathroom, let alone other stuff such as toothbrush, extra towles, even hairdryer. All of what you need in a normal stay is extra charge which was surpising. The staff didn't also seem to have a great knowledge of the area. If you stay in a hostel, you'll pay much less plus you get to have more amenities, as well as meeting lots of interesting people. Also beacuse there are lots of different type of people including adventurous backpackers stay in a hostel, the staff know much more about the events and interesting things to experience.

Good hotel close to Asakusa sights

Posted 14-Nov-2013
Pros: Good location, especially the short walk to Kitchentown.
Cons: More comfortable chairs in the rooms would be nice.
Location: Easy walk to Kitchentown and the senso-ji temple were the main features.
The Agora Place Hotel Asakusa was well located for many Asakusa attractions and also easy walking distance from Ueno. My only suggestion would be for them to invest in some more comfortable chairs in the rooms. After a busy day of sightseeing, sitting in a moulded plastic chair just doesn't cut it.

Good option and close walk to Asakusa

Posted 29-Sep-2013
Cons: Air conditioning was pretty weak, but it still didn't get uncomfortably hot.
My wife and I were heading to Tokyo for a weekend and every hotel was booked except this and a couple of very shady looking places. We decided to go for this and found out that it was worth the risk. Small rooms that are very clean and comfortable. The staff was really nice, there's a bar / restaurant in the first floor, and it was about a ten minute walk to Asakusa. It's actually easier to get off at Asakusa Station and walk then to use the trains to transfer to the closest station. It's about on par with the nicer hostels in the area, but you get your own bathroom, which is a perk.

Good but not great

Posted 20-Jun-2013
For the price there are better hotels in the area. Room came with no amenities (not even slippers), bathroom layout was cramped (even by Tokyo standards) and smelled terrible. The bed was very comfortable and quite large.

Everything you need in Asakusa area

Posted 04-Jun-2013
Location: NOTE: The closest subway station is Tawaramachi (Ginza line #18), which is just steps away, but for some reason is not shown on the map.
This hotel was clean, comfortable and close to Asakusa and the SkyTree, at a great price. Soap, shampoo and conditioner were considered extras that you could buy at the front desk, which I think is a practice that more hotels should adopt to reduce waste and keep prices low!

asakusa

Posted 02-Jun-2013
Pros: price, new, comfortable.
Cons: parts of bathroom is small but we could deal with.
Location: easy access from Ginza line.
Newly renovated and excellent location for Asakusa sightseeing. Easy access to Ueno Station for other sightseeing. Price was very reasonable for our time frame. clean, excellent young staff. Note , small charge for soap and shampoo if one does not bring their own. Highly recommend to stay for most travelers. Well heeled visitor should stay at 4-star or higher. I would return

Modern and great ambiance hotel

Posted 28-May-2013
Pros: Clean and friendly staff
Cons: Size of the room. And toiletries need to be purchased
Location: Good location
The hotel is well kept and modern. Rooms are a bit small but still manageable. The hotel does not provide toiletries except for towels. You can buy them at the reception. Location is ok. Walking distance to Asakusa main attractions.

Nice new hotel; good location

Posted 11-May-2013
Pros: Spacious bathroom, comfortable bed, good view
Cons: Amenities must be purchased separately
Location: Minutes by foot from Kaminarimon/Asakusa and seconds from Tawaramachi Station.
Stayed 4 nights over Golden Week and really enjoyed my stay. Semi-double room was very spacious, as was the bathroom which, unlike most similar hotel in Japan, had a separate waterfall shower. Location was also excellent: two minutes from Tawarmachi Sta. exit B2. Only downside is that Expedia's booking is for the basic level of room amenities, ie. soap, shampoo, night-gown, etc. must be purchased/rented separately (Edit: Expedia won't let me mention the prices of those amenities, but they're quite cheap). I noticed the housekeeper left extra shampoo/soap each morning, however.
