We booked a non-smoking twin room with a view, however the room unfortunately had a very distinct smoke smell which made it hard to sleep. Expensive breakfast - 5.800 yen for 2 persons. Only worth it for the view, but not for the food!

This hotel is located in a very convenient location. Train access near by, Sensoji Temple and the shopping streets are walking distance. Hotel has limousine bus to/from airports, shuttle to Skytree. Life market next door for convenience, many quaint restaurants all around in walking distance. Don Q and Kappabashi shopping (kitchenware) are a couple of blocks away.
Very clean, even if construction for 2020 Olympics are going on. Construction noise not a problem.
Stayed 9 nights. Would stay again.

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and booked a room with 2 beds. The first room we got was smelling not sure if it was a smokers room. We asked for another room and got an upgrade for free to a room with Skytree view. The room space was good for a hotel in Tokyo and it was very clean. Unfortunately the air condition didn´t cool (we were told this is normal) and our room got very hot in the morning, at least 25°C. However a house keeper could open a small window and that was enough to get good room climate. The breakfast was included in our room rate and I enjoyed it a lot as I like the japanese style. There were enough Croissants and pastry to also satisfy my husband. If you don´t like japanese breakfast I would suggest to eat somewhere else as the price is too high for the western food. All in all we enjoyed our stay in this hotel as the issues we had were solved fast. In my opinion Asakusa is the best place to stay in Tokyo and the view in this hotel is absolutely superb. The staff could speak good English we got all the information we asked for.

Room Tip: if you want a non smoker room you have to make it very clear

We spent five nights at the Asakusa View Hotel. We reached the hotel by taking the Keisei Skyliner train from Narita Airport to Ueno Station (note: if you pre-book via the internet, your ticket price is reduced by 200 Yen). Once at Ueno Station, follow the signs for “taxi”. To obtain a taxi, you press a button and are instructed to press again if a taxi doesn’t arrive within 30 seconds. There were two individuals in front of us and it took each of them about 10 minutes to get a cab (after continued pressing of the button). We too had to push the button multiple times and it took us about the same 10 minutes to get a taxi. Once a taxi arrived, we reached the hotel in about 20 minutes (lots of traffic and stop lights). The fare was 1300 Yen.

Once we arrived at the hotel, check-in was quick and professional. Our room was quite small but it did include a desk & chair, a mini-frig, a coffee maker and a water boiler (a built-in hot plate with a metal kettle that sat on top). Also squeezed into the small space was a chair with a footstool along with a small table. Actually, the room was well-designed to utilize all available space. The shower/tub was compact but sufficient and the toilet was a high-tech bidet with a heated seat.

Our only problem with the room was that the safe was not attached to the floor or a wall. It was just a stand-alone unit. We went to the Front Desk to inquire and we were told that none of the property’s safes were built-in. Obviously, we weren’t happy to store cash, a computer, an IPhone and an expensive camera in that type of unit. “Shaisishi” of Housekeeping came to the rescue by coming to our room with screws and a screwdriver and affixing the safe into the already drilled holes. We had no mistrust of the housekeeping staff or any other employees but an affixed safe made us feel more confident.

Our prepaid rate included the buffet breakfast on the 26th floor restaurant. The buffet was extensive including both Asian (primarily Japanese) food and Western food. We were seated immediately except on one weekend morning when there was a five minute wait. The food was very tasty. Coffee was served at the table upon request or there was a coffee machine in the buffet area. There were also a variety of teas in the same location.

The hotel has a good position for touring. It’s a quick walk to the Sensoji Temple complex. To get to other areas of Tokyo, you can use the metro system. Walk a couple of blocks to the right of the hotel to reach the Ginza Line.

Right next door to the hotel is a Life Market. We purchased a variety of items from it – including wine – at reasonable prices. It’s a three-story building and has everything you might need such as food, liquor, clothing, toiletries, etc.

The Narita Airport Limousine bus stops directly at the hotel door. We were able to purchase our tickets using a credit card at the Front Desk. Advance reservations are required. Be aware that the bus to Narita leaves only at 7:30AM or 1:30PM; there is more frequent service to Haneda.

In summary, we enjoyed our stay at Asakusa View Hotel. The hotel is expensive as you would expect it to be in the Tokyo area. It does have a room on Floor 20 which offers views of the Tokyo Tower, Shinsoji Temple, etc. That’s also the place to find the ice machine and vending machines. Most of the staff spoke some English which was helpful.

The Asakusa View Hotel is a great Location from which to explore Tokyo, especially if you make the Asakusa District your home base. In this area you can access Ueno Park with its multitude of Museums, The Senso-Ji Shrine complex, countless Restaurants, The Matsugaya Department Store and Food Court, The picturesque Sumida River Park and Cafes and the Kitchen District with a great collection of Japanese Cookware—all within a 30 minute walking distance. The hotel itself is immaculately Clean, has some really good onsite, albeit expensive, restaurants, a well stocked supermarket with takeaway next door and a rooftop bar with a fabulous view of the Tokyo Skytree Tower lit up at night. Our room was always cleaned with daily replenishing of fresh towels and Bedding. Finally, the staff are extremely helpful; although their ability to speak English is limited you can still communicate if you are patient, understanding and interactive—the more effort you show the more this will be reciprocated and a good rapport will be established.
