The staff are very helpful and it was an enjoyable stay, right around the corner from the subway/JR rail station. The English was excellent and hey were able to offer advice for travel and tourism in the area. You definitely get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Please look at the list of facilities and remember that it is a hotel rather than a hostel. Travell...

This Hotel was the perfect choice for our family. The family that owned and ran the hotel went beyond any other hotel we have ever stayed at. When we were in Tokyo our baby got sick and had to go to the hospital and the owners were so kind and helpful. They helped with translating and transportation. We felt like the whole staff really cared about our family. The hotel and rooms were very clean. They also had free wifi connection and were very close to the JR. The location was excellent, especially if you want to see Akihabara. We would highly recommend the hotel Yanagibashi to anyone. Without the kindness from the people at this hotel we would have been lost.

Small but very clean, very comfortable and very affordable family-run hotel in Old Tokyo/Asakusa. Minutes from Asakusabashi JR station and subway station. Friendly hotel staff and they even let us check in early.

I was at Hotel Yanagubashi from the 28/6/12 - 14/7/12. First impressions were very good, the staff were fantastic, energetic and always willing to help out. Spoke in English very well and even helped organise tours.

The hotel location is top notch being just around the corner from the JR Asakusabashi station (One stop from Akihabara) and subway station (Connects to the Narita Airport without train change during specific times) maybe a 3-5 minute walk.
There are many restraunts close by and even a 'western' style one not even a block away for the people who want a taste of home.
Room price was very resionable and considering the location and how close things were i was shocked that it was not more.

The room size is small for the double two of us stayed in the room during the trip, it was very nice(The other hotel i stayed one night at in Kyoto the room was half the size with no bathroom!). The rooms were very snuggly and clean. Rooms could be cleaned every day if you leave the notice out.

There are standard entertainment options, Tv was good quality, free WIFI downstairs (can connect on second floor if you have a good enough wireless card), Ethernet internet connection is also avaliable free of charge in the room.. Extremely fast compaired to my what i thought was fast internet back home in Australia.
Vending machines are located in the Hotel Lobby, one has softdrinks etc and the other sells alchol both are very reasonably priced.

My overall experience in Japan was definetly hightened by the fantastic staff at Hotel Yanagibashi, its cheap price and its awesome location to Train stations, restraunts and local stores etc.

I cannot wait until i can go back to Japan, i will most definetly be staying at Yanagibashi again. Recomend for small groups of travelers who like the above conveniences and who want to save a few bucks.

Stayed here one night in July 2012. The hotel is great for the Price compared to hotel prices in Tokyo. The rooms are VERY small, but contains the basics. The staff was very friendly and all spoke English.
The hotel is a 3 min walk from Asakusabashi station.
There are free WiFI at the entrance level and some vending machines outside for sodas and water.
I think this is a great hotel for 1-2 nights stay, when you basically just need a bed to sleep in.
Only problem was the A/C sitting above my bed, blowing cold air into my face all night. Good chance of getting a cold from this, so I can recommend to sleep the other way arround (which I didn't).
If travelling with kids to this hotel, be aware the adult channel is only scrambled very few places, so you get a very good idea of what's going on and it's not difficult to switch to the pay channels as I just tried to change the ordinary channel on the japaneese remote.

Room Tip: Due to A/C, sleep the other way arround so you dont risk getting a Cold from A/C blowing into your h...
