Agora Place hotel

Posted 27-Jul-2014
Pros: location, staff, clean
Booked the very last minute at a very reasonable price, especially for the area! I only stayed one night, but my experience was very good. Lovely stuff, easy to communicate.

Clean and friendly, but many "gotchas"

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: It's modern looking and clean, staff are friendly enough.
Cons: Lots, see the 'experience' above. Generally it could be much improved with better amenities and less nickel-and-dimeing.
Location: It's relatively close to the Asakusa shrine and skytree. Very close to the subway stop.
The room itself was clean and the staff were friendly, but that is about all the good I can say about the place. First, the room didn't have a bathtub, only a shower, despite what is said on expedia. Second, you get no shampoo/conditioner/soap, you have to pay extra for that (!!). They charge 100¥ per small item, and they aren't even that good. The shampoo doesn't lather well and the entire bottle of conditioner is needed (I have a little longer than shoulder-length hair). Given that I am paying for it, I would expect at least as good quality as I got from all the other hotels we stayed at (half a dozen this trip). There are laundry facilities on-site, which was nice, but they aren't the best. There are two machines which cost 500¥ for a wash/dry that takes 210 minutes. At the end, some of the cloths were still wet, so I took out the drier stuff and put in an extra 100¥ for 30 minutes drying time. When I came back, it said it still had 120 minutes left and there was no way to stop it. I had to get a front-desk staff to come up, and she had to unplug the machine to get it to open the door. The air conditioner in the room is relatively weak and noisy. With all the other hotels, you can set a numeric desired temperature, set a High/Medium/Low setting and it would turn off and on as needed. Here, there is simply a H/M/L knob and no way to set a desired temp. Even at max, the temperature was adequate, if not comfortable. Lastly, the TV lost satellite signal constantly.

Near metro. Take exit 1 if you need elevator. 15 min walk to Asakusa.

Cheap and New Hotel but weird concept

Posted 15-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
The location of the hotel is great, just next to a train station. The hotel is well designed and recently renovated. However, the great first impression was marred by their "concept hotel/shop", in which you get the absolutely just the "basic" room and you have to purchase anything else you need, even amenities. We were surprised that it does not provide even body soap / hand soap upon checking it. How much can that cost? Even some cheap all-in-one soap will be much appreciated.

Best in Asakusa

Posted 10-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is very close to the Tawaramachi subway station on the Ginza line. Asakusa and Ueno is also within 5-10 minute walking. The room is clean and nice. Had a wonderful time in Tokyo in May.

Great location

Posted 29-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Great location within walking distance to Asakusa (Sensoji temple) and Kappabashi street (restaurant supply street). Tokyo metro (subway) Tawaramachi station is right at the next block but no elevator but that is small incovenience.

Very Good Location!

Good location, the hotel is near the stations of Tokyo Metro and Toei Metro. Very clean, but the room is a little small.

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
