Hostel & Cafe East57 Asakusabashi Annex

Asakusa is one of the most well-known spots in Tokyo, so naturally you are offered an abundance of choices when it comes to accommodation.  However, how do you distinguish the good ones from the really awesome ones?  The really awesome ones have a stylish café and bar in their lobby, and what’s more, have the best prices in the area, starting from 2,000 yen!

The newly opened Hotel & Cafe East57 Asakusabashi is located a 2-minute walk away from the Asakusabashi JR and Subway station, therefore all the popular spots such as Akihabara, the electronics paradise, or the traditional temple and suumo town, Asakusa and Ryogoku, are all easily accessible from the hotel.  Apart from the basic facilities such as washing machines and dryers, East57 also comes with a café and bar in the lobby, including an outdoor terrace, which serves as a great place to meet fellow travelers!  The café and the bar are situated in two different buildings, with the café located in the main building , and the bar and terrace in the Annex.  Both are available for accommodation and are only ~50 meters away from each other.
