Upscale Western-style accommodations are rare in Asakusa, so the Asakusa View pretty much has this end of the market to itself. But the hotel isn't divorced from Japanese culture: communal hinoki (Japanese-cypress) baths on the sixth floor overlook a Japanese garden. Rooms are basic, decorated in neutral tones, but single rooms can be small, starting at about 70 square feet. The suite rooms, on the 25th floor, offer a view of the Senso-ji pagoda, the temple grounds,
and the Tokyo Sky Tree transmission tower. The hotel's a three-minute walk from the retro amusement park Hanayashiki; more than 100 years old, its rides have a Coney Island feel to them. All rooms have free in-room Wi-Fi.
