The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon

2–16–11 Kaminarimon, Tokyo, 111-0034, Japan

This relative newcomer to the historic Asakusa area presents a certain stylish flair, starting from the entrance, where an elevator whisks you up 13 floors to the beautiful, glass-walled lobby. The attractive guest rooms are outfitted in deep, dark browns accented with jewel tones and the occasional mod touches, but twin beds can seem a bit cramped. When you need more space, head to the open-air Terrace on the 14th floor, with a lovely view of the Tokyo Sky Tree. The bistro-style French restaurant serves pork and beef dishes and has an extensive drink selection. The Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) is a short walk away, as is the Nakamise shopping market. Staff members are friendly and speak English.
