Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu Review

Just off Nakamise-dori and inside the Senso-ji grounds, this small inn, with both Japanese- and Western-style rooms, could not be better located for a visit to the temple. The best options are the rooms with futon bedding and tatami floors, though they can be cramped for more than two people. Western rooms are plain and a bit dated. Both options have private baths; or you can head to the sixth floor to soak in a Japanese-style wooden communal bath with a view of the Senso-ji pagoda.

    Nice hotel, great location

    Our standard Japanese style room was small but comfortable. The hotel's soaking baths (men's & women's communal) were also small but very nice. Staff was very friendly and the location is excellent! We will definitely stay here the next time we're in Tokyo.
