The Via Inn Asakusa is a decent business hotel at the north end of Asakusa with some of the cheapest hotel rates in the city of Tokyo.
If you’re looking to save some serious money on accommodation and are okay with staying up in Asakusa, this simple business hotel is among the best bargains in the city. It’s at the north end of Asakusa, very close to Senso-ji Temple and about 10 minutes walk from Asakusa subway station. Thus, the location is relatively convenient.
The rooms are typical of Japanese business hotels: small, but adequate, with everything you need.
There’s a decent Western- and Japanese-style breakfast buffet.
Given the rates, which are among the cheapest in the city, this is a very good choice in the budget category.
