[Hotel Review] The Next Step to Explore Asakusa - Hotel Amanek Asakusa Azumabashi (ホテル アマネク 浅草吾妻橋)

Spring is the season for new beginnings, from everything to new fiscal years to the start of new semesters. It is also a season for newly opening hotels, and last week I went to check out a new hotel called Amanek that is scheduled to open its doors to tourists from April 18th 2018.

Amanek is a hotel that has a name inspired by English words, with Ama coming from "amazing" and nek as is "next". With only 7 minutes from Asakusa station, this hotel aims to be a stylish base for travelers looking to explore this part of Tokyo.

The Guest Room

Hotel Amanek is situated in a 7-floor building, and if you're lucky you'll be able to enjoy the sight of the magnificent Tokyo Sky Tree right from your hotel bed. This 3-star business hotel focuses on providing comfort and convenience at a reasonable price, so if you're looking for a little piece of luxury for less money this might be a good option for you.

The size of the room was around 13 m² so there was not much floor space, but in order to maximize the space in the room, the bed had been "lifted" as to create a room to store your luggage underneath the bed.

Guests ordering the hotel's breakfast (650 yen) get a ready-to-go package that can be enjoyed either in the hotel room or brought along to eat elsewhere. You can choose between a couple of options for sandwiches and type of drink.

What to Do

The hotel is within 10 min walk from Asakusa, where you can, for instance, rent a kimono/yukata and stroll around the traditional temples or play a room escape game. Asakusa is also a lively area with various options available for people who want to try out the Tokyo nightlife as well.
