Business hotel in Asakusa & Sumida River

The rooms at this well-run hotel with English-speaking staff are typically small but come with tatami floors (even though you sleep on beds) and other Japanese touches. Breakfast is served in the top-floor lounge, with spectacular views across the Sumida-gawa towards Tokyo Sky Tree – there's also a rooftop terrace.

Rates go up for Saturdays and the day before public holidays.
