“Nice, Convenient and Affordable”
Just about everything was awesome with this hotel. The staff was nice and accommodating, the rooms were clean. It had the fastest wired internet I've ever seen. The hotel was close to a useful train station, and near cool places like Akihabara. The Ghibli museum was a decently long ways away but a simple train ride took us there with only a single transfer (from the local to the rapid versions of the same line). The only negative I could come up with is that the room was fairly small. And considering the reasonable price and the fact that this is Tokyo, it's not bad. The room was plenty big enough for my friend and I.
“Great Hotel, going back this year.”
Great Hotel, going back this year.
“Don't mind to go back to this Hotel next time”
This hotel is nice to stay at. As a first time traveler to a new place alone, I like the hotel location away from the bustling city as a start for me to explore the city step by step. The staff can speak slight english but not a big problem as most of the time I can understand them. The size of the room is small but sufficient for a few nights stay as most of the day I will be out. It may not be suitable for some people who are big in size as you will keep on bumping to the side of the table, toilet doors and so on. I think this was what happened as I kept on hearing people next door making these kind of bumping sounds. Location wise, is ok. Nearby cafes and convenient stores are available, it is also near to train station. Overall, the hotel is sufficient for me to stay.
“Great Place for Akiba Trip”
The hotel was conveniently located, only one stop away from Akihabara Electric Town. The staff was very friendly and most had a bit of English. It was foreigner friendly and very clean. The beds were a great size and comfortable, especially for Asian standards. The restaurant in the hotel was very good; however, the menus was all in Japanese. Luckily, they have some waiters there that could help you and give recommendations. The food was really tasty and they had a good selection of sake. I recommend this hotel for couple travelers and singles. Not really good for families with young children, there isn't anything for kids there. I would definitely go back to this hotel when I go back to Tokyo!!
“Fantastic affordable hotel one top away from akihabara”
I would stay at hotel nihonbashi villa again. It's location was very convenient to the the rest of tokyo, it didn't take long at all to get to haneda airport and harajuku and akihabara (one stop) were easy to find too. There are quite a few food options around the station, with a convenience store located at the end of the block and a coin laundry behind the hotel. The rooms are small however, our triple room was quite spacious but when we returned a week later, there was only twin share roooms available and it was quite difficult to pack as we had left our luggage behind at the hotel. I would return here though as the staff are helpful though there is a bit of a language barrier as my grandma was in the room when housekeeping arrived and they had a misunderstanding and ran away but the front desk rang and with my high school japanese I was able to convey that they could clean our room straight away and when we said do not disturb fresh towels and robes were waiting for us outside the door along with new toiletries.
“Excellent hotel within sight of the Sky Tree.”
Hotel Nihonbashi Villa is an older hotel in the Asakusa area of Tokyo, but don't let that put you off: the rooms are comfortable, comparable to other hotels, and the hotel has been remodeled enough that despite its small size, it looks well maintained. The lobby is elegant, and they'd just put up their Christmas decorations when I got in. They do have free Internet, but it's not wi-fi (most hotels in Japan do not have wi-fi, so this is not unusual), and they don't provide a network cable in the room, so make sure you bring your own! In spite of its name, the hotel is actually located closest to Bakurocho Station, which is along the JR Yokosuka Line. You can literally ride the Narita Express from Narita to Tokyo Station, then disembark, change train platforms, and go back two stations to be at the hotel. Incredibly convenient. The Bakurocho Station exit has an exit that is literally right outside of the hotel. Highly recommended for anyone who is on a budget and wants to explore Tokyo.
The hotel was well worth what you pay. Friendly staff, amazingly cleaned & maintained rooms, safe feeling neighborhood, close to trains, restraunts, shops. Just overall a really good vibe & feel to the hotel.
I HAVE STAYED AT NIHONBASHI VILLA TOKYO TWICE .......AND WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN [AND PROBABLY WILL]. THE STAFF KNOW ENOUGH ENGLISH TO HELP YOU .THE LOCATION IS PERFECT FOR ALL THE MAIN TOKYO TOURIST SPOTS.......SOME EVEN BY FOOT.EASY TO GET TO AND FROM AIRPORT PLENTY OF PLACES TO EAT...[24 HOUR MACDONALDS ,FOR THE HOMESICK]....THE ROOM WILL SUIT THE PURPOSES OF ANY TOURIST........AFTER ALL YOU DONT GO ON HOLIDAY TO SIT IN YOUR ROOM ALL DAY.....THE MAIN TOKYO TRAIN STATION IS CLOSE BYE.....FROM HERE YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE IN JAPAN.......MY MAIN POINT IS ITS LOCATION...AND FRIENDLINESS OF THE STAFF..
“perfect little hotel”
The hotel was great, small, but hotels in tokyo are small. The staff was really nice and helpful they gave maps and information about where to go. Their English was not really good, but i just needed to speak slower and clearer. No breakfast was included, but there are 7-11 and other convenient stores near by. The Asakusabashi metro station is really close and it is so easy to get to the hotel. besides it is not really far from some Tokyo attractions like the tokyo tower.
“Good hotel in quiet part of Tokyo”
The location of the hotel is great. The neighborhood is quiet, but there are restaurants close by. There is a train/subway station *very* close; if you know what you are doing you can take the JR "Rapid" train (not the Narita Express) straight to Bakurocho station, without going to Tokyo station. The hotel staff are great. They don't speak much English, but are very polite and helpful. The breakfast (450yen I think) is good value - if you like Japanese breakfast (I do). The rooms are small, of course. This is Tokyo. For two westerners (not giants), it was cosy, but we coped. Our biggest complaint was the bed - it was *very* hard. Our backs did not like it. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you like a quiet but convenient location, do not need lots of luxury and do not want/need to catered to by fluent English speaking staff. I would stay here again.
