If you’re looking for a solid hotel recommendation in Asakusa, Tokyo you’ve come to the right spot! A hidden gem we’ve discovered is Asakusa Tobu Hotel. We were pleased with its convenient location, size (relative to other hotels in Tokyo it was pretty decent!), and price.

Asakusa is a good option to find a hotel if you’re looking for an area that has a little more character and history. Read on below for a full, in-depth review of Asakusa Tobu Hotel below!


The hotel is located just across the street from Asakusa Station, which is served by three lines: the Tobu Skytree Line, Ginza Line, and Asakusa Line. From here, you can easily access places such as Tokyo Sky Tree Station (~5 min away), Ueno Station (~5 min away), Ginza Station (~17 min away). The downside is that you’re further away from Shinjuku, Harajuku, and Shibuya. Also worth noting that Asakusa is also not part of the Yamanote Line, although that’s not a deal breaker for me.

Asakusa Tobu Hotel’s location is ideal as it’s close to all the historical sights of Asakusa like Senso-ji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street. It also offers easy access to other areas like Akihabara, Ueno, Ginza, and Tokyo Sky Tree. There are plenty of dining options and restaurants nearby, making this an ideal “hub” to come back to everyday. Not surprisingly, there were also many “combini” (convenience stores) nearby – most notably a 7-Eleven right downstairs (next to a KFC!).

Room Size

We booked the Comfort Twin Room (~269 square feet). It was comfortable for two adults each with his/her own bed. The room included nice features such as USB charging ports on the nightstands and space to store luggage under the beds. There wasn’t a desk though, just a side table and small couch – not ideal for people looking to work while traveling. We were also lucky enough to get a room on the 10th floor with amazing views.

This hotel is relatively new compared to some other options in this area – I think it opened in 2021 or 2022. Newer hotels in Japan have better separation of shower vs. toilet vs. vanity – so that someone can still be brushing their teeth while the other is in the shower. Thoughtful details like this matter!

Hotel Amenities

Aside from standard features like free Wi-Fi and basic daytime luggage storage before/after check-out, there were other “extra” features of the hotel I appreciated.

Laundry Facilities

When we travel in Japan, we try to pack as lightly as possible. That means we may need to do some laundry from time to time. Laundry service in hotels are usually expensive, so it’s great when there are self-serve laundry machines. There are coin-operated laundry machines on several floors of the Asakusa Tobu Hotel. You can check on the TV in your room which ones are being used. It was a great feature!

Breakfast Buffet

While the breakfast buffet wasn’t as impressive as some of the other hotel chains we’ve stayed at (Candeo Hotels have had best breakfast buffets!) it was still a “nice to have” feature. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet once and it had a nice spread.

Where to book

I’ve consistently booked my hotels in Japan through Expedia, Booking.com, and Agoda. You can Google the hotel with dates and see other booking options as well. It’s very easy to book and there are oftentimes “free cancelation” periods. If you change your mind you can cancel the room without penalty.

Asakusa Tobu Hotel: How to get there

Another reason to consider staying in Asakusa for your next Tokyo trip is easy access to both major airports in Tokyo. (Side note: I personally like hotels serviced by the Airport Limousine Bus. Tobu Levant Hotel is also a good option avoid traveling on the subway/metros with luggage.

From Haneda Airport (Just under 1 hour)

To reach Asakusa Tobu Hotel from Haneda Airport, take the Keikyu Airport Line directly from Haneda Airport International Terminal Station to Asakusa Station. This journey typically takes around 45-50 minutes. From Asakusa Station, it’s about a 3-5 minute walk to Asakusa Tobu Hotel.

From Narita International Airport (Just over 1 hour)

The easiest way to get to the hotel from Narita International Airport is to take the Keisei Narita Skyaccess Access-Tokkyu train towards Nishi-Magome. Get off at Asakusa Station, then walk 3-5 minutes to the hotel.
