Great hotel in central location

Overall I had a great stay at Hotel Yanagibasi. The room was very simple although it had all the necessities. The staff were fantastic and very friendly. They made our stay in Tokyo very pleasant. The hotel was also situated in a very good location just one stop away from Akihabara Station from Asakusabashi station. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be back on my next trip to Japan!

Excellent Budget Hotel

The hotel was very easy to find, and only a 3 minute walk from Asakusabashi station. Loved the neighborhood! Great for walking around. Staff is very helpful & friendly. There is a nice selection of neighborhood maps & sightseeing pamphlets in a rack in the lobby. Well, it isn't really a lobby, so much as a front desk at the end of an entry corridor -- not really any place to wait around if you arrive before check-in. But, in our case, they let us into the room an hour and a half early. If you have huge pieces of luggage, the tiny room may be a problem -- or if you're really big, fitting into the small bathroom might be a problem -- but the size wasn't a problem for us. The room was clean. The water in the shower was hot. The queen-size double bed was comfortable & we slept well.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

In Japan (and Korea), you can check the local map at each subway station entrance to orient yourself. Maps are not North/South oriented, but oriented in the direction you're facing as you look at the map. There's a "you are here" arrow also pointing the direction.

Convenient location

The hotel is rather old and the room is not too clean (given the price is low so I guess it is acceptable if your requirement is low). The room is larger than expected and has free wi-fi. It is close to JR station (5-minute walk) but the JR station does not have escalator so it is tough if you carry large luggage. There is a bus to Tokyo station (takes about 15 minutes) so it is better to take the bus rather than JR.

Best to get to the HOT places in Tokyo!

This hotel's very affordable, but what gives it that special kick is that it's very accessible to many places! Take the train from the Asakusabashi Station (a 3 minute walk from the hotel) and you can be in the best places to visit like Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, Ginza, Ueno, the Tokyo City Center etc within 20 minutes! The hotel was pretty much what u'd need for someone who just needs a place to rest his/her head for the night. and also, the Wi-Fi is very fast, and power access point are a-plenty in the room (5 of them!) so if you're a gadget freak you have plenty of places to charge your stuff. however one thing that got to me was the cramped room and the super flat pillows. but hey, for that price and accessibility, what more could you ask for?

Was good when I wasn't planning in staying long.

I was only there for the night as I was traveling from Kyoto to Tokyo and then to the airport the next day. Staff was good and rooms were decent. Rooms were a little dirtier than I had hoped for and only the lobby had wifi. Private bathrooms and the bed were the highlights. If I was planning on staying longer, I would have looked for a nicer place. I enjoyed my one night stay there.

Vacation

The hotel staff very accomodating and has offered me and my son superb customer service experience. Hotel very near train station too so easy to move about. There are restaurants just a few meters away too. Only thing missing is a starbucks outlet for a nice sip of coffee to start our day.

Seasoned Japanese Traveller

A typical Japanese business hotel at the lower end. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms very small but to be expected for Tokyo at this price. Breakfast served at a small charge but served late. Has laundry which was useful Would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in Tokyo

Small but cosy

Although it takes a bit of an effort to get your suitcase to fit next to the bed, the room is and has everything one needs. Anyway, if you are in Tokyo, you don't need to spend time in your room during the day. The location of the hotel is very good, two minutes from the subway and JR station, and you can get there directly from Narita or Haneda.
