Reviewed 10 January 2013

Stayed here from 28th December 2012 to January 7th and we couldn't couldn't of picked a better hotel. The location is perfect for a stay in Tokyo, literally 2 minutes away from the Asakusabashi Station. Small restaurants within a minute walk, a Lawson (mini supermarket) around the corner. The staff were always helpful if we had any questions and gave us advice when planning trips out of the Tokyo.

Sachiko and Tomoko are lovely owners, I strongly recommend this hotel whether your a Tokyo regular or newbie.

Great experience at this hotel! The room was very small, not something I'm used to being an American! But it was clean and served our needs. The staff was extremely hospitable. In a city that has countless huge chain hotels, I liked staying at a smaller hotel where the staff called me by name. The area was perfect. A 2 minute walk from the subway and train stations but located in a quieter part of town where it was easy to rest after a busy day of sightseeing. Will definitely be staying here again!

We stayed at the Hotel Yanagibashi for two night whilst touring the Kanto area of Japan for a week. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Thery spoke average English, enough to get by. The lady who owns it directed us to our room. Two small single beds, a tiny bathroom with shower and toilet and a small rail for hanging clothes. Overall the room was tiny and very cramped. However, this is typical of Tokyo so was expected. We encountered no problems at all during our stay, be aware the front desk shuts at 1am though! Despite waking them up at 4am in a drunken state to collect our room key, The owners were still completely happy and helpful. Within 5 minutes walk of Asakusabashi metro station, excellent links to the whole of the city. Would definately reccomend to those with a short stay in Tokyo.

Away from the high traffic area but very close to train and subway transportation, provided mini refrigerator, hair dryer, umbrellas if needed,full bathroom, and they do have laundry machines on site for a fee, convinience store one block and other restaurants At night I would look forward to returning to my little quiet safe haven away from the crowds. Staff and owners like family, rooms small and clean, good budget price and would not hesitate to return there. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Hotel Yanagibashi is a small, cozy hotel that is the perfect in between. It is more than a backpackers inn (sleep on beds!) but less than a fancy hotel (small rooms). The room size isnt much of a problem unless you must have spaciousness. Really just the perfect place to lie down, and keep your bags, but no luxury hotel to relax in.
It is in a superb location, and it's really easy to get anywhere from the hotel. The area is quiet and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They all speak great English and are able to help with any issues.
Also access to wifi and computers is great, good air con too.
Honestly, the experience with the staff and the good rooms was a lot more than I expected for the price.
Highly recommend for low cost travelers!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are slightly more spacious.
