Hotel Yanagibashi

Reviewed 10 March 2013

As mentioned before, this hotel has a perfect location (JR/Underground station just around the corner) very friendly staff and excellent service. Tomoko even managed to get us Ghibli museum tickets on very short notice and came to bring them to us on her day off! Our room was (in true Tokyo style) tiny, but kept very clean and airconditioned. There is internet in the little lounge on the ground floor near the reception area. All in all we would definitely recommend staying there!

Stayed here last month for 4 nights. I had a great time. Staff are very friendly and kind, offering us coffee or sweets while we hanged in the common room using the wifi.

Staff knew English and were very helpful in addressing our questions.

Location is great. It's 2 mins away from the JR line and it's only one stop away from Akihabara.

Rooms are tiny, but it hopefully that shouldn't matter as you're in Japan! :)

There is free wifi, but only in the lobby / common room.

I loves this place, and I'll definitely stay here again.

Last December I have made a trip down to the hotel for a 2 week trip with my friend on a sightseeing and culture trip to tokyo. I would like to say that the service I received there is very good and staff gave me alot of useful advice on where and where to go. The hotel room was also very nicely done and regularly maintained. The location of the hotel is easily accessible and also near Akihabara so it would be ideal for anime/idol lovers. GREAT STAY ^^

Room Tip: You could try asking about getting a top floor room. If there is a room available there you could pe...

If you want a lovely no frills comfortable stay and want to take advantage of your JR pass than look no further. Asusakabashi is a quaint town with everything you need and one stop shy of Akihabara. The staff of the hotel are sweet and very helpful all you need to so is ask! However everything is self explanatory and they clean your bed everyday with fresh towels provided. We loved it very much!!! Don't expect a super ritzy stay and be prepared to be self sufficient.
Perfect for young adventurous couples!

We stayed at the Hotel Yanagibasi for 1 week. It was comfortable and pleasure to stay for us. The staff are all friendly and very kind. They speak in English and they have some usefull English information at the reception. I'm a Japanese but not from Tokyo so they help me a lot how to move around. The room is small as people indicate but very clean and in the room there are everything you need. With this bugget there are no complain. The location it's enough close and easy to reach everywhere. 2 minutes to closest JR line and metro station. Also from the Narita Airport there is a direct train to the Asakusabashi station. We didn't go around much the area near the hotel, but it seems very interesting to see as well. Avairable WiFi and internet in the computer room. We enjoyed a lot staying in Tokyo, I would stay again at this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights upon arrival at Tokyo and before setting off to Kyoto. The hotel is conveniently located near the JR Asakusabashi Station. For those of you who are interested, this area is apparently famous for its large doll stores. We brought a couple of dolls from a store named Kyugetsu which was just a 5 mins walk from the hotel and the workmanship was impeccable.

The hotel room is very small and compact but it was clean and tidy and it will serve your needs well if you just need a place to sleep for the night. The wifi in the room is weak but they have a computer room at the lobby which you can use for free. Bicycle rental is also available and this area is generally safe for cycling since it is more like a quiet town area.

Stayed here from 28th December 2012 to January 7th and we couldn't couldn't of picked a better hotel. The location is perfect for a stay in Tokyo, literally 2 minutes away from the Asakusabashi Station. Small restaurants within a minute walk, a Lawson (mini supermarket) around the corner. The staff were always helpful if we had any questions and gave us advice when planning trips out of the Tokyo.

Sachiko and Tomoko are lovely owners, I strongly recommend this hotel whether your a Tokyo regular or newbie.
