Lobby Check-in / Check-out
The front desk is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator.
It has a Quaint atmosphere.
Main entrance faces a pedestrian street, and there is no space for vehicles to pull up.
As mentioned later, guests can use the parking at the Asakusa View Hotel, which is a one-minute walk away.
On the first floor, there is “Broadway Rokku” where guests can enjoy breakfast and traditional Asakusa performances.
When you get off the elevator, the front desk is right in front of you.
Since the Meiji era, Asakusa Rokku district flourished as an entertainment district with many cinemas and theaters.
The location where Asakusa View Hotel Annex Rokku is now located was also once a cinema that was popular with many people.
In front of the front desk, there is a projector on display that conveys the culture of that time.
There is a diorama in the lobby that reproduces “Asaksua Rokku”

There is also a free space in the lobby where you can do things like work on a PC.
As it is a modern hotel, power sources are firmly provided.
All guest rooms are non-smoking, so there is a smoking room in the lobby.
If you have made a reservation using national travel subsidy program or other similar programs, you will need to go to the front desk first to complete the necessary, such as receiving coupons.
After completing these procedures, you can proceed to the adjacent self-check-in machine to receive your room key and complete the check-in process.
There is an amenity bar next to it.
Various amenities such as toothbrushes, razors, cotton pads, washcloths, slippers, cotton swabs, etc are provided at the amenity bar.

The room is rectangular in shape, and beyond the bedroom area, there is a tatami-floored area where you need to take off your shoes before entering.
The bedroom is a tatami room, so you need to take off your shoes before entering.
With a room size of 28.62 square meters, there is plenty of space even with two beds and a sofa.
Although it is a twin bed and 110cm wide, so it is spacious enough even for sleeping with a companion.
Also, since there is no height difference between the bed and the floor due to the tatami, you don’t have to worry about getting injured if you accidentally fall off the bed, so you can stay with small children with peace of mind.
As a new hotel, there are also USB power sources in the room.

Even though it’s a tea bag, it’s packaged in a container that adds to the Japanese ambiance of the room.
I’m not sure why there are three of them… but the children seemed to be enjoying themselves, lining them up and playing with them.
A humidifying air purifier is also a permanent fixture.

The moderate type TV is 43 inches in size.

A new hotel has opened in Asakusa, which combines functionally with traditional Japanese culture
I introduced the Moderate type twin room at the newly opened Asakusa View Hotel Annex Rokku in March 2023.
As a new hotel, everything is clean and well-maintained, and it provides a functional and comfortable stay while also allowing guests to experience the traditional culture of Japan and Asakusa.
With its convenient location, well-equipped facilities, and prices below 20,000yen for standard rooms, this hotel is very attractive compared to the rising prices of hotels in Tokyo.
It is perfect for those visiting Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree, and it can also be used as a pre-stay hotel for those on a Disney trip like us.
We hope this information can be helpful for you in selecting a hotel.
