My room was on the 10 floor, but the view was only of the building next door. The rooms on the upper floors may have a better view of the city and some may even have a view of the Tokyo Sky Tree.

Hotel Surroundings

The hotel was near the station, but the it was located off the busy street, so I was able to spend a relaxing time in a quiet area. There was a convenience store nearby, and there were restaurants in front of the station which was convenient. There were also two drugstores in front of the station. The streets were crowded with people, so it is a safe neighborhood. This area is an office district, so many of the stores were closed during the daytime on holidays.

Staff and Guests

I did not meet any of the staff during my stay. Check-in and check-out is done on a machine, so the staff only come out for those having trouble with the machine.

IMG_0717.JPG (7)

There were normally many foreign tourists staying, but it was off season, so I did not see many. I saw an office worker who is in his 40s and a two-person group in his 20s who were probably on a business trip.

Access

It is about a 2 minute walk from Asakusabashi Station, so access is very good. I was also able to get to the center of Asakusa in about 20 minutes on foot. There were many restaurants at the station square. There were also about 3 convenience stores within a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

Summary

Overall, my stay was not good. The hotel is reasonable and has easy access to the airport, but the only interesting part of the hotel was the lobby and the room was an ordinary room like a business hotel. Also, the advertisements on the smart phone and the TV suddenly turning on was very distracting. The bed was uncomfortable to sleep on and the bathroom smelled bad as well. It may be alright for those looking to stay at a reasonable hotel, but there are better hotels at a similar price.
