The room is very clean, but a little small The location is very close to the Asakusa temple, and subway. The staff can speak very good English.

This hotel was so cute - and came with the typical small Japanese style bathrooms that look like they forgot to install a real one. The hotel is very clean - looked brand new and the staff were very helpful of our non-Japanese speaking backgrounds. The location was a much further than we'd have liked from the airport - 90 mins on the train - however it was right round the corner from a temple and massive shopping mall/markets. Word of warning, there are very few English speaking locals in this area and even fewer places to eat with English menus - but the local food we did get was sensational. So just be prepared if you don't speak Japanese - our best best is a pen & paper and draw (eg. chickens and noddles with a bowl = chicken noodle soup) because as we soon realised, our hand actions and slow-talking wasn't a great communication tool!

Excellent location with lovely view of Senso-ji through our window. Reception staff had adequate grasp of English. Many dining options nearby even for children who are yearning for Western-style meals again. We had a quad room and had no trouble fitting our 2 adult-3 child family in.

Very friendly and helpful staff located right in the heart of Asakusa. They changed my room with no fuss when I was located next to an inconsiderate (western) so-an-so in the adjacent room who decided to talk (shout?) on his phone for two nights from 11-3 in the morning... The staff don't speak very much English (I do speak Japanese) and the rooms are evidently not that sound-proof. Some of the single rooms are larger than others - for example 709 is much larger than 701. Enjoy your stay.

We stayed in a Quad room which is spacious and fun for the family. Hotel is located on a quiet street but 2 minutes walk from major tourist spot. Have some trouble locating the hotel emerging from station in the dark but not an issue after that.

Fantastic location, very helpful staff, our twin room was very clean and comfortable, spacious by local standards. Although there are many cheaper hotels in the area. Do not book airport transfers. We took direct train from Narita Airport to Ueno Station, and then a taxi to our hotel - same time and 80% discount.

Travellers should note that every room window in the hotel is opaque and will not open more than 10cm. This is not the place to stay if you want a view!! Nor if you are arriving before 3pm - they did not allow me an early check-in. The location is good.

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The staff were very courteous and helpful even though I can not speak one word of Japanese. My room was a twin for sole use, so had plenty of space. The clever use of small space in the bathroom was impressive. There was no wireless internet in the room, however the hotel staff lent me a cable for the internet which was free. The hotel is close to the interesting area of the Sensoji temple. Travel from the airport was really easy with the Skyliner train to Ueno station (1920 yen) and then a relatively short taxi ride (about 1300 yen) to the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

A reasonable hotel, small and in a good location. Very small, cramped single room. Typically alive with a myriad of small lights - smoke detector, air-con, light switches making sleep difficult for those who need total darkness in order to sleep. All in all, the typical business class hotel which offers nothing but a bed for the night at a slightly inflated price.

This was a great hotel. It was exactly what I thought a Japanese hotel would be like. We had two rooms (my wife and me, my two kids). The price was decent, even for Japan, which can be more expensive. The rooms were clean, neat and comfortable. Yes, they were smaller, but not too small. The bathrooms were tiny but well laid out and easy to use. The staff was great. They spoke just enough English to help us with our queries. It's location is perfect. It's right next to the big temple complex in Asakusa and very close to lots of the shopping areas and the subway. My whole family enjoyed our three days here. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Asakusa, Tokyo, Japn.

Good location, clean, room was very nice and not too small by Tokyo's standards. If you pay under 6500 Yen a night I think it's a bargain. I'm not sure if they have internet though. I stayed two nights and later tried to book for more nights and was sad to see they didn't have any more discounted rooms. I later ended up, on more than one occasion during my one week stay, paying more for rooms that weren't nearly as nice. I'd stay at Blue Wave again.

This hotel/ my room was above standard compared to other business hotels I have stayed at in Tokyo. The room was nice, the hotel interior looks remodelled, and the price was almost half of what I've paid elsewhere for similar style rooms. I'd stay there again.

A bit pricey for us, but pretty good for Tokyo. Very clean nice room. Had a great view of the temple. Only issue was when we booked an extra night they couldn't keep us in the same room. Bit annoying, but nothing major. Not too far from subway.
