Score from 184 reviews Excellent
great location right next to Sensoji temple, lots of shops and restaurants and shops nearby, the public bath has gorgeous view of the tokyo skyline
The room was clean, the tatami was very traditional and the kimonos that were provided for sleeping were a fine addition to the overall traditional essence of the guest room.
The space provided for the luggage was very small and it was difficult to open any suitcase.
- Great location - Nice japanese rooms - View to the skytree from the public bath
Ideal location: close to the Asakusa station which provides direct trains to both international airport. Close to the two main touristic magnets of Asakusa, but in a quiet street anyway. Excellent japanese breakfast (go for it). And the Sento (japanish public bath) is simply a must.
Not easy to find if you don't know the region yet: Make sure to have a good plan before you start looking for it with your luggage. The air conditioner is centralized: you can only control the speed (low, medium, high), but not the temperature. Since you sleep just underneath the AC flow, it's not really ideal
Room décor, breakfast, ambient, location close to Asakusa temple
private bath was much hotter than the other onsen visited :)
This was our second stay here & nothing had diminished since the first time. The staff were as friendly & welcoming. The room had a wonderful traditional aesthetic, with the reassuring presence of western bathroom facilities. Seeing the Sensoji Temple & pagoda out of the window echoed the contrast between traditional Japan in the heart of a modern city. The experience of a relaxing soak in the Japanese bath house upstairs is not to be missed. A Japanese breakfast in the ground floor restaurant can round off a magical experience, though there is a western option as well.
Friendly staff, clean, great location, great public bath, everything!
Staff, living quarters, location, value excellent. Food good.
Location difficult to find since it is located within a maze of streets with stalls that all look the same. You can only see the sign for the location when your right next to it not if you're any distance away from it making locating the ryokan problematic. Possibly I'm location-challenged.
Staff, breakfast, room and location all excellent. Value for money very good at discounted price.
Internet was a bit iffy. Public bath was only lukewarm on one occasion
This ryokan is a peaceful spot just off the Nakamise Dori, so very convenient for everything in Asakusa. This time, we had two single rooms - my friend had the slightly larger one (I think the room numbers that end 07 will all the same). The single rooms are on the back of the building, so very quiet.
The single rooms are a little dark at certain times of day, as they are at the back of the ryokan, but since you won't be spending all day in your room, it doesn't matter.
The Ambient of the hotel was very unique and i recommend it to everyone that wants to try the traditional style of sleeping rooms in Japan. The Cleanliness of everything, includint the room and the common areas was perfect. Not a detail was wrongly placed. The Friendliness of the Staff applies to everyone we met on the travel but as our first stop it was a very nice and welcome first sign of the people there that everyone at the ryokan was very nice and eager to help us. The Location was perfect. Nicely located at five minutes from the biggest temple in tokyo and at 5 minutes from a JR station to everywhere else.
The best of this Ryokan is its location, in the center of Asakusa, a very good area for tourism in Tokyo
We were three in a room clearly for two. Very expensive for such a small space. Compare to a real Ryokan we stayed before in Kyoto, this is far from it. No space for bags. The room had a small table in the closet but there was no space in the room to use it. Wifi signal was very poor
+ friendly staff, good basic english + authentic japanese-style rooms + onsen/bathhouse at the top floor with great view to Asakusa Skytree and pagoda of the Senso-ji temple + quiet area + location right next to Senso-ji temple + you can buy a japanese breakfast
- opening hours of the onsen are quite short - no accessible staircase (e.g. going from ground to 1st floor with elevator is pretty wasteful)
the quality of the setting the amazing fresh Japanese breakfast the kindness of the staff
The location is what makes this a beauty as well as the interior and lobby. The staff were overly friendly and super polite. As this was my first night in Asia, it was a really nice relief from other places I've stayed at. There is an elevator which you will bring your stuff up with. I stayed in the regular single room. The public bath at the top was very memorable and cozy!!! Don't miss it and I hope you had the place to myself like I did.
The bed could have been better in my opinion, the radio needed to be replaced since fm wasn't working, and there was no view (although I knew that going in with my particular room) but I did get to stare into the concrete side of the adjacent bulding! There is no check-in if you arrive in the middle of the night, so you'll be out of luck.
The location is superb, a quiet though lively neighbourhood, good restaurants around the corner
No complaints at all
The location is good.
right in the heart of Asakusa... doesn't get much better! amazing breakfast too, friendly staff... !
Location very handy very close to Asakusa station and Sensoji Temple with interesting shops and many local restaurants. We got very good internet room rate which made the ryokan very good value. Listed rates though are significantly higher. Staff speak reasonable English and very keen to help. Japanese breakfast was very good.
Only one criticism - the public bath on the top floor was lukewarm at best. Not the hot soothing of aching muscles I needed after a weekend of hard training. Small niggle - internet was pretty slow, but at least it was available and free.
The air conditioning was great to have, as we had all hot days during our trip. Wifi was also good since we could communicate back home easily. The location was great, and we enjoyed the shops and sights around the hotel. Transportation to and from the Airport with the Asakusa Station being not too far from the hotel (the Kisei Skyline was the best option). The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to get the hotel breakfast when we wanted (the Japanese style breakfast was great, and really interesting to try) and we were able to refuse room cleaning when we needed to be in the hotel room during cleaning time, and still get clean towels.
The rooms were small and sleeping on the futons on the floor does take some getting used to (although they have options for western rooms if you don't think you're up for the Japanese style rooms.) We were only given one key even though we had a 3 person room, it would have been good to have one more so that we could slip up easer (my wife and myself with one key, and my friend with the other) without worrying about getting back into our room.
A very nice room japanese style and good location.
We had a very bad experience with the old man hotel owner or staff (I dont' know) that it seems to be very often as I can read in others travellers opinions. We had no air conditionnig in the room, non sleeping night with more than 35 degrees and with 2 years old kid and a very rude staff attention. We arrived at the hotel at 19:00 and the room service was perfect and a young lady came to show us the room. We found it very hot and before leaving to have dinner outside we mentionned it to the same lady in the hotel reception. She kindly told us she will put on the air conditionning with an air control she had behind her desk. We thought that after dinner the room would be refreshed but when we arrived the room still being impossible to be inside. Imagine a japanesse style room, evereything covered in wood and wicker carpets and at 35º degrees. My husband complained for the 2º time to an old man in the frontdesk by that hour. He unwillingly touched again the temperature control downstaires behind the desk, he told him with unpleasant manners that it was a deshumidifier and not an air conditionned and ask him to wait for some minutes. But the room was a sauna! The air still no working all and for the 3d time we came down to complain and ask to a room change because we have a 2 years kid and it was impossible to sleep in that room. The 3 of us were hardly sweeting in the room. It was fresher in the corridor than inside the room.The old man was really rude, yelling at us that we had to wait to refresh (we had wait for more than 5h !) He came upstairs to the room with a chair and he could check that the room was very hot and the air was not working but he headstrongly told us that the air was working and we had to wait. He was really really rude and start yelling to me because I was holding my baby in my arms and by that time I forgot to take off his kid shoes in the room.
Atmosphere was great. We enjoyed everything and especially the young lady in Reception Office was very helpful, friendly and professional. The breakfast (both Japanese and Western) were excellent and very well presented. The location was fantastic, strolling around this older part of Tokyo really made our Japanese Experience a thrill! I would recommend friends and others to stay there.
Some furniture in room was dated.
We liked everything - staff, room, location, breakfast - about Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu.
The public baths on the 6th floor were tiny and would be problematic if lots of folks used them. I used them first thing in the morning and fortunately for me there were no other folks using them at this time.
Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu is a traditional hotel with a comfortable bed, free wifi, and a clean hot tub for my evening bath. It was the perfect place for me to stay for my four-day visit to Tokyo.
