First of all, I should say that the staff were fantastic - very friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful salon on the main floor, a bathhouse on premise, a cute historical vibe, and a great location in Asakusa. This property has a lot going for it! It has some serious flaws, though: 1. It has a midnight strict curfew. We did not realize this when booking, and it was a big turn-off, especially since the property is a in a city that never sleeps and is known for night life. This put a big damper on our experience. 2. There is only one option for a bed: a thin futon mattress on the floor. We managed to make it work, but it was not comfortable. I realize that this goes along with the historical theme, but management might consider putting something softer underneath the futon space for modern visitors. 3. My wife and I both developed rashes and got bug bites while we were there. I'm not sure what the culprit was, but I suspect it was those futon mattresses and something living in there. Not good. 4. The walls are thin, and there was major construction going on outside with a ton of loud noise, preventing decent sleep. Not entirely the hotel's fault, but it impacts the stay of visitors so I'm sharing it for visibility. 5. There is no shower, just a drain in the bathroom floor and a handheld device. Water gets everywhere. 6. The nearest public transit is an express line, not a subway line, which is inconvenient In sum, while the place was cute, I would not book again.
