With its uniformed staff and marble lobby somewhat incongruent with this downtown, working-class neighbourhood, the Asakusa View boasts a fairly high standard of accommodation, and its rates reflect its status as the only luxury hotel in the area. If you want to make the hotel live up to its name, go for a room as high up as you can: the view from the top over Asakusa and the Sumida river is worth catching. Non-visitors can also pop in for a drink to the Belvedere lounge on the 28th floor. A nice touch is that the sixth floor is given over to Japanese-style rooms, complete with their own garden.
