The Short - Tokyo is MASSIVE...if you are looking to stay near Sensoji Temple...stay here.
The Medium - I was in Japan on business and took some time to see the country. I walk a LOT and put on a good 15 miles in Tokyo. This rooms are very small but well appointed and comfortable. If you are going to Tokyo to stay in a hotel...this is not the place for you. If you are going to Tokyo to walk a lot and see even more...this hotel is a fantastic base.
No complaints about the hotel except that when I had my "I don't need my room cleaned" sign up (which is supposed to be like a do not disturb) they still knocked on my door and ask me to clean it, waking me up. Other than that I would recommend it for someone who mainly wanted to do things on that side of Tokyo - like visit the sky tree, Asakusa, Akihabara, the fish market. Was a bit time consuming trying to get to Shinjuku and other areas.
This is not a luxury hotel. The rooms are small and so are the baths. However, everything is in good repair and very clean. The layout of the room makes it very functional. The hotel staff is very friendly. You interact with them regularly because you leave your room key at the desk when you leave the hotel. At first I thought this was kind of strange, but got use to it. It also gave me the opportunity to interact with the desk clerks. They seem to know all their guests. There was a choice of Japanese or western breakfast. In addition, there was a large selection of fruits, salads, rice and waffles for breakfast. In the evening they had ramen soup.
Boasting a top location in this popular neighborhood, the Dormy Inn Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan delivers quality hospitality to …More
Like the title says, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel considering I just had to book it and hope that it was alright. It's in a nice part of Tokyo and it's really close to two Tokyo Metro stops and easy to find. It's also fairly close to Ueno Station which makes it easy to get to from outside of Tokyo.
Great location a couple of minutes walk from the subway and temple. Loads of cheap but excellent local restaurants on your doorstep. Friendly, helpful staff. There's a Japanese-style bath free of use on the premises, a good breakfast if you want it, English or Japanese. The futon beds were comfy. Would recommend, especially to those looking for Japanese-style amenities. Asakusa is an easy place to stay, well-placed for subway access to most of Tokyo's best sights. The skytree tower is good and has a fun aquarium for the kids.
Today visited for its Sensoji Temple, Five Storied Pagoda, and the Nakamise traditional shopping arcade, this festive neighborhood once was the city’s hot spot for drinking and dancing. Though it never experienced the development that Ginza and others have, it holds its own with an artistic community and some of the city’s top attractions.
