THE GATE HOTEL Asakusa Kaminarimon by HULIC
Ranked #2 of 155 Hotels / Ryokan in Taito
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Stayed one night in June with my nephew. We needed an early check-in after a red-eye flight and the hotel could offer a room from 12 o'clock. There's also a direct train connection (Keisei Access) from Narita.
I love Asakusa as a neighbourhood - laid back, easy to find awesome food, the temple, sky tree, so different from Shibuya. The hotel couldn't really be any better located, it's smack in the middle of Asakusa right across the street from the Temple gate and close to train and metro stations. There's also a good super market right next door, should you need one.

Since breakfast is not included, you just might.
Rooms are not big, but I guess normal in Tokyo standards.
Everything was very clean and the service impeccable.
Wifi worked just fine for web browsing.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views, surprise surprise.

night view is very beautiful, the front lobby in the top of hotel is another experience, room security system is kindly friendly for hospice but the wifi stability is not good enough to transfer datas.

I stayed at this hotel as the final one of my trip to Japan, which ended in Tokyo. We stayed here for three nights. The selling point was its great location, near a lively Asakusa area, which is the more cultural (and touristy) neighborhood of Tokyo. Also nice is that it is located near the Ginza and Asakusa subway lines, which will take you all the way to Shibuya, Shinjuku and also Narita airport if needed. We opted for the faster Narita express from Ueno, which is just a few stops from this location.

The view of the hotel at the reception and also the roof terrace is amazing.The room was nice and clean, the beds are firm but comfortable. For Japanese standards the room is quite big. I did not hear any noise from other visitors of the hotel. After rearranging some of the furniture I had more than enough space to open up the suitcase. Especially the bathroom was really nice, with a separate walk/in shower. Furthermore, the staff at the hotel was very friendly, helpful and in good command of the English language. The internet at this hotel works just fine. Any reviewers which had not been able to get it to work, probably did not try their browser which takes you to the website with use policy that you have to accept. After this it worked perfectly, although at very busy hours it may reach the maximum number of devices allowed. This was no bother to me, as I usually used it late at night to upload my (gigabytes of) pictures.

Overall I would highly recommend it and stay again whenever I return to Tokyo, even if it is not a low-priced hotel.

Rooms are nice and clean. Bed comfortable and free WiFi is offered. The restaurant is open 24-hours and there is also a roof top bar where you can enjoy views of the Skytree or any other attractions in Asakusa. The subway station is about a 5 minute walk away. Service is excellent. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as a stopover on the way to Australia and we were very pleased with our choice. As a brief introduction to Tokyo, the area around the hotel is fantastic with a huge selection of bars, restaurants, fast food joints, shopping opportunities, pachinko parlours and general Japanese city life on your doorstep. The hotel is spotlessly clean and very modern in design and the room we had was perfectly adequate for a short stay. The view from reception is hard to beat, especially at night and the 14th floor residents bar was anther highlight. All in all we had a fantastic stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: I think a corner room would be good to maximise the view. Obviously a high floor for the same reason...

In addition to the very lovely room and friendly staff at réception, the location is great and the service in the restaurant is excellent. I was telling the restaurant manager how this expérience was nice. Not only for the good food but also because the différent members who served me were very friendly and welcoming. This kind and professionnel service can make your day. A great and positive stay!

We booked a last minute trip to Tokyo during cherry blossom season and were really worried by the limited availability of hotels. Thankfully The Gate Hotel was available and we were thrilled by it. From the moment you check in, the process is smooth and pleasing. The views from the reception are stunning. The rooms are surprisingly large for Tokyo and comfortably equipped. The breakfast was fresh and tasty and the views from the bar were breathtaking. We found the location good, although it is a short walk to the metro. In all, we were very happy with our stay here and will definitely try to stay here again.
