Hotels in Asakusa – An Old District with a Modern Twist

Asakusa is a popular tourist destination in Tokyo. Stay at a hotel that meets your needs and budget. Centrally located hotels in Asakusa could make a vacation even better.

Asakusa: A beautiful district that keeps to the traditional routes of Japan, but with a flair of modernity thrown in. From the being purified at the Sensoji Temple to getting your Omikuji fortune told (and only for 100 yen!) to watching Ningyoyaki be prepared on the streets (don’t forget to chow down on it too), Asakusa is in all the travel books for Japan. So, of course, you are headed over to enjoy spend some money at the Nakamise Dori, but when your trip extends over a day, the question is where to spend the night. You are in luck! Asakusa has many hotels and hostels to stay at; you are sure to find one to your liking.

Has it been a long day shopping and eating all around Asakusa? Well, Dormy Inn Express one of the best hotels around to unwind in. This inn has an open-air bath available to all guests; the perfect place to wash away all the sweat and crumbs from the day.

If late night food and drinking with a view along with a nice soak in a traditional Japanese style bath does not already have you calling them up, its location is ideal as it is close to the Sensoji Temple and Kaminari Mon, along with the Odaiba district. The most popular room is a double room, which goes for about $67 (7,399 yen) a night, with breakfast and wifi included. For a little more room (or a room more like home) they also offer a Japanese/Western style room for around $177 (12,954 yen).

The best thing about Via Inn: a heated toilet seat with Bidet for all guest rooms. Not your cup of tea? That is okay; they provide tea for every room too. The amenities in Via Inn will have you purchasing another suitcase to pack up everything from the complimentary toothbrush to the pajamas.

Prices range from $98 (11,000 yen) for a single to $196 (22,000 yen) for a universal twin per night.

#4. The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon

“Traditional with modern trimmings” is how The Gate Hotel describes itself, and there really is no better way to put it. The Gate Hotel prides itself on its Japanese hospitality, ‘Omotenashi.’ With a beautiful bar and restaurant available to all guests, with a dazzling chandelier and a stunning view, this hotel will leave you in awe of its classy splendor. With 137 guest room, classified as Modest, Authentic, Essential, Scenic, and Classy, these rooms, themselves, will have you taking your phone out to snap a few pictures, not to mention the view. I

f you are feeling extra spiffy, the Balcony Suite or The Gate Suite are available as well. All rooms, no matter how ‘modest’, has at least at 32″ plasma television, a rain shower, and Wifi. This hotel is a little more price, but it is all worth the price. ‘Modest’ rooms (semi-doubles) start at $148 (16,632 yen), and can reach over $371 (41,634 yen) for a Classy room for one night. So, if you are not willing to spend a little more money for some extra things to ogle at during your stay in Japan, I would not recommend The Gate Hotel.

This next hotel is the grandest of them all: The Asakusa View Hotel. This hotel is equipped with a Japanese restaurant, a French Restaurant, a coffee house, and a bar lounge. If you are afraid of heights, I do not recommend this hotel, as the view from the rooms on the upper floor looks out across the beautiful Asakusa district. Every single room has a spectacular view.

Of course, this hotel comes with a price. And with all of its popularity, you may also be hard pressed to even find a room available (I mean, who would not want to stay at a hotel that will pick you up from the airport in a limo?). Dry cleaning, indoor pool, bicycle rental, and so many more amenities, if you are looking into shelling out some extra cash to make your stay even more enjoyable, this is the hotel for you.

At $70 a night for a casual twin, this hotel is one of the cheapest you will find as close as it is to the hustle of the district. Larger rooms are available, such as a semi-double ($76 per night), al the way up to a Hollywood twin. The Hotel Keihan is a perfect place to stay, with special offers all the time, such as a “monthly breakfast” for November or a spa packet with creams and body lotion hand selected by the female staff of this lovely hotel.

A short seven-minute walk will get you to the Sensoji Temple, or a ten-minute walk to both the Kaminari Mon Gate and Nakamise Shopping Street. This hotel is beautiful, fairly cheap, and senior citizen discounts, this hotel is a good deal and a nice home-away-from-home.

A direct stop on the train from Haneda Airport and within walking distance of the Sensoji Temple, another great location for a simplistic, yet stylish and clean hotel. This hotel is another great spot to spend a night or two, especially since the rooms are as low as $60 (6,800 yen) a night.

The last hotel on our hotel search through the splendid Asakusa is the APA Hotel & Resort. The outside, clad in gold, is something you will not miss walking down the street, but this hotel rightly deserves the shiny exterior, as the interior is just as amazing. Rooms can start at about $62 (7000 yen) per night, and go up to about $500 per night based on the room, time of stay, and if you want breakfast from the hotel or not.

This hotel has feather pillows, LCD TV’s, different colored towels (not just a boring white anymore), Wifi, slippers, a first-come-first-serve parking lot and…AN ORIGAMI CRANE in every room. There are many more things offered to the lucky guests who stay here in the gold clad, 301 room hotel that is a few minutes walk away from any local tourist attraction one would desire to go to.
