This hotel is well located in a quiet, somewhat unattractive side road...because of its location you would need to walk almost right up to it before it comes into view. The area is safe despite appearances and I would suggest that this is a typical neighbourhood. It’s between two and five minutes from Asakusa Metro Station depending what entrance you go through. Entrances A4 on Asakusa Line and 1 on Ginza Line seemed best placed to me.
Reception was good, staffed by friendly, enthusiastic people and the process was painless.
The rooms are small, even by Japanese standards. I stayed in a double that was adequate for me, but would have been very small for a couple. Wardrobe consisted of six coat hangers on coat hooks attached to the wall behind the entry door. There’s a desk that extends the length of the bed which is adequate, a fridge and kettle with hairdryer in the draw of the desk. Bed is comfortable enough with typically Japanese pillows which tend to be on the hard side for most western tastes. A large, HD flat screen television is attached to the wall at the end of the bed. Only one English language channel on offer, BBC World News which is pretty typical of this style of hotel. Video on Demand is available at 1,000 Yen for 24 hours with a decent selection of English language movies if that is what you want.
The combination bathroom / toilet is the usual small Japanese cabin affair with a high, raised step to get into and a toilet that is a bit of a squeeze to sit on. The tub is typically deep and would be a problem for the average western male to sit in. However, for me, it was only used as a shower. Shower BTW was excellent with good pressure and temperature.
The room had excellent air conditioning...I stayed when it was very humid and warm and was able to cool the room down very quickly when I returned from a day out. In room cleanliness was also top notch.
There’s an onsite cafe, but I never tried it so unable to offer a review.
I haven’t stayed at APA hotels on previous trips to Japan, mainly staying at Daiwa Roynet hotels that offer more space for just a little more money. I will be staying at a different branch of APA in Tokyo at the end of this trip and it will be interesting to compare the two. Would I return? Yes, but only after checking out other hotel prices first.

The room is small and basic for a couple. The bed takes the major part of the room with a big flat screen tv, table with kettle another amenities. We got the 11th floor room overlooking the town of Asakusa. The toilet was clean, small and basic. They provided us with toothbrushes, bathrobes and slippers.
Overall pleased with the hotel. The check in process was smooth and the staff were cordial. Language might be an issue but they are happy to help. The hotel is close to the Asakusa shrine, restaurants, 7-11 supermarket, Mc Donald’s and metro. Enjoy the nice and quiet neighborhood!

We paid about $185 a night for about 60 to 70 square feet of room. Everything was good except the size of the room. My computer broke and can't get this one to up load my photos of the hotel. Check my You Tube and I will get the videos up before May 1, 2018. Go to captainorin on You Tube. I really love Japan. The location of this hotel is down a side. street. We went to the wrong APA Hotel. There are two close by. Keep the famous shrine at your back and walk down about one block across the street and trun right and you will find the hotel. Oh yea no pillows. Just a flat luffa.

Room Tip: Only one elevator. Get one near the bottom so you can walk down.

One of the tiniest rooms I have ever stayed at - small double with one side against a wall - got pretty claustrophobic after a while for a couple, although one person would have been fine. Nowhere to hang clothes so living out of suitcase. Friendly staff. Adequate breakfast - 2 choices - Western or Japanese- both nice but not much to eat and you get only one small cup of tea or coffee. Great location- round the corner from the shrine and lots of eateries. Close to Ginza line.
