This is absolutely not a hotel ! First of all, the name says this "hotel" is in Asakusa. That's totally wrong ! It's located in Senzoku and very far away from any subway station, 20 minutes from Iriya (Hibiya line). To go there with all our luggages was awful. Hopefuly we had wifi with us because I really thought my...

Small cheap hotel for business trip. Clear, but there was a bit smell of tobaco. 15 minutes to Asakusa Sensoji Temple and Asakusa station of Ginza line. In this hotel there is a coin loundry and everyone can use it. Front desk is at the second floor and it is not very convinient.

The Soho Asakusa was funky and fantastic! It's not actually in a redlight district, as other reviewers have stated--it's about a block away from a very quiet street with neon signs advertising massages and the like. The establishments are patrolled by well-mannered Yakuza. The hotel--really a short-term apartment, as others have said--is 10 minutes/1 km--from Minawa station (two stops from...

The staff was very friendly and the room was very comfortable. King sized bed, microwave, refrigerator and bathroom amenities included for a very good price. A Lawson store located around the corner and a...

The hotel is a good option for those seeking a quiet and tranquil place in Tokyo. The location is great for those travelling with kids, though its 15-20 min from trains. The neighborhood is really cosy and friendly, with restaurants and such nearby. Asakusa is quite near, Staff is friendly, but not always good english speakers. The apartment, which was...

The closest train station is Iriya station, one stop away from Ueno. However, the map provided on the website deceptively shows the hotel is near. It isn't. The map was only half the actual route. We got suspicious when the locals there did not know of the hotel. It took us more than 20 minutes' brisk walk, lugging our bags...

Located in quiet, safe area but far from any metro station (Iriya, Asakusa or Minowa). Many small shops around, especially Family Market (24h, western sandwiches, drinks, payment with credit cards). Soho Asakusa looks like a hostel. No wardrobe, but with small tv set, microwave, kitchen, refrigerator and hair dryer. Main bed quite comfortable but sofa for 3rd person was terrible!!...

This is not a bad place but it's not your typical hotel. Everything about it makes you feel like you are in a residential apartment building, not that there is anything bad about this. The guy who runs the place is very friendly and he helped us with everything we asked him. The rooms are small (which is typical of...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
