“Very nice hotel, great location, excellent service!”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

This is an excellent hotel, one of the best in Tokyo. Great location, close to Asakusa Subway, train station from Haneda Airport, and Tobu Train Station. Next to convenient stores, Starbucks, shopping streets, souvenir shops and many famous restaurants. Opposite Asakusa Temple and Sensoji Temple, Room size is very large compared to the average Japanese guest rooms. I stayed in the Scenic Room (no 904), marvellous view, very spacious, very well-equipped, and comfortable indeed! Staff are very friendly, service-minded, and helpful, esp at the front desk. I would like to highly recommend this hotel to all travelers and will definitely stay there again whenever I go back to Tokyo.

Room Tip: If you have enough budget or want to reward yourself once in a blue moon, pay a little more to stay...

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel just across the road from the Thunder Gate. The service is excellent and the breakfast very good. The hotel has an amazing roof terrace with outdoor heaters and a small bar. This is only open to hotel residents so doesn't get too crowded. if it is chilly the staff provide blankets to keep you warm whilst you admire the view of the Skytree.
In a vibrant area of Tokyo with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Also very convenient for the metro and river cruises. The rooms are slightly small with very little space between the end of the bed and the wall. However the bathroom was excellent and had a bath with a view.

This a great hotel. The rooms have a nice decor. My favorite part was the rain shower head. The people at the front desk are really helpful. There's a convenient grocery store on the first floor and a 7/11 just one block away. The subway is also just one block away. Great location and great view from the lobby and rooftop bar!

My family and I just returned from a one week stay at the Gate. This is a terrific new hotel with a helpful english-speaking manager, a beautiful rooftop lobby, terrace and restaurant, and a nice staff. The location is perfect, in historic Asakusa, with excellent restaurants and shopping, and transit close by. Highly recommended...

Room Tip: The rooms facing Tokyo Skytree have great views.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Gate Hotel Kaminarimon for one night, and we were both very impressed with the room, the amenities, the service, the food, and the amazing views.

This hotel seems to have been built and designed by people who care about what they are doing. Everything has thought behind it, from the 13th-floor lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows showing off Asakusa and Skytree, to the magnificent "rain dance" shower.

I recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Tokyo for business or pleasure, and I recommend the bar/restaurant for anyone wanting a great backdrop for a date or special occasion. My girlfriend loved the creme brulee, and she can be a bit of a dessert-snob if things are not done right.

Room Tip: Our 9th-floor room had a good view of Skytree, though I think we would have been just as happy on a...

There's something very wonderful and unique about the Gate Hotel. My experience started with the friendly and professional reception at the front desk upon arrival after a long overseas trip. The Balcony Suite is well-appponted with many amenities and extras. The service is the among the best I have ever experienced. I had several special requests including an extra desk chair, luggage rack and clothes rack, and within minutes this was taken care of.... with a smile. I was asked what time I would like Housekeeping to clean the room, and they come each day precisely at that time. Someone really thought about how to offer a traveler an excellent hotel experience, and the Gate Hotel absolutely does, right down to every little detail. it's convenient to shops, restaurants, rail stations, grocery stores and a Starbucks. I wish every hotel was half this good.
