The Richmond Hotel is a great business hotel right in the heart of Asakusa. It’s one of the best deals in this part of the city.
The hotel itself is relatively new and stylish, with small but well-arranged rooms that have everything you need.
The staff is efficient and tries very hard to please. There’s a good on-site restaurant where you can eat a nutritious Japanese breakfast.
Given the rates (which sometimes dip into the budget range) and the great location, this is one of the best deals in Asakusa. It’s recommended.
