Asakusa View Hotel

3-17-1 Asakusa , Taito-ku
Tokyo , Japan http://www.viewhotels.co.jp/asakusa/english/index.html
81-3-3847-1111

Overlooking one of Tokyo's most famous shrines, the Asakusa View is a classic downtown Tokyo hotel, complete with an impressive marble lobby and crystal chandeliers. Guest rooms have a vintage feel, with wallpaper and furnishings reminiscent of the 80s or 90s, but many are spacious. Asakusa's location and amenities (including an on-site French patesserie, cafe, sushi bar, and pool) are the real draw; Mimosa Lounge on the first floor is a great spot for meetings or afternoon tea, while Karakurenai, which serves Cantonese cuisine on the 27th floor, has floor-to-ceiing windows with views of the nearby Asakusa Shrine and the city skyline.
