When I first entered my room, it smelt like someone didn't flush the toilet. The room, although it was very old, was decently clean and the bed was comfortable. I have found much better hotels at cheaper prices in better locations in Tokyo, so I am quite disappointed. Overall it was a poor stay and I wouldn't go again.
I recommend add ten or twenty dollars a night and find somewhere better. This place is poor for Japan standards. The property grounds are worn and have a musty old smell. The room furnishings have the look and feel of 20 - 30 year old design, including the bed and desk. In-room Wifi was patchy. The bathroom is functional but very small. I checked out early and moved to APA hotel as I found the hotel to be unpleasant to stay in overall.
I stayed in the Hotel Kuramae for one night in March 2016. The hotel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main sights of Asakusa and the train station. It's a very straight forward business hotel with no bells or whistles.
I chose it as I was arriving in Tokyo on a red eye flight and was arriving there and going straight to bed.
The room was okay, It was quite dated and smelled faintly of cigarettes, but it was clean and comfortable and had a decent shower.
As I mentioned it's not too far from Asakusa and there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the area.
There's nothing special about the place but for the price it's good value if your looking for somewhere cheap, safe and comfortable for a night's stay.
Very good location 100m from subway 30 min to Tokyo station. The hotel is average japan business hotel with small but clean rooms and bathrooms. Thera are no wardrobe. The room doors are metal :). The stuff don't speak english. There is no breakfast but there are small shops and small restaurants in 5 min walking distance.
Smoky and dirty. Not well kept up. People allowed to smoke in lobby, so I guess they could smoke anywhere. Carpets and bed covers all stained. Not a nice place to stay. The Internet connection was, however, very good. Asked for a room with two beds, so we got a larger room than others in our group.
