Although we had a small double bed rather than twins the room was still tiny, 2 people could not be moving about at the same time. I guess this is what you have to expect in Tokyo. However you don't have to expect an extremely uncomfortable bed with something that shouldn't even be allowed to be called a pillow. Even... More

Quiet location but close to stations and easy walk to food and bright lights. Free basic breakfast. Choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms. Beds not the most comfortable and pillows borrowed from a dolls house. I stayed on 11th floor and WiFi was fine. Would happily short stay again. Staff were very helpful.

Servicable but nothing special. Having said that, expectations generally need to be set lower for Japan as the money doesn't seem to go so far there. Very small rooms, as is the norm for Japan. There was no wifi in the rooms (perhaps it's changed since I was there in Easter 2014) and luckily I packed travel wifi routers to... More

The hotel is located in Ueno which is a good area if you don't want to be around many tourists. Very close to a subway station. The rooms were okay, however, the beds and pillows were very uncomfortable and hard. I had to purchase a new pillow to be able to sleep at night. My partner and I would not... More

Firstly the good points, its near the main Ueno railway station and park, around a 20 minute walk. Also a couple of metro stations are close at hand. The staff are pleasant and speak reasonably good English.The single room I had was spotless and larger than I expected and very comfortable. On the minus side there is very poor WiFi... More

We've been in Japan for 11 days in October 2014 and changed quite a few hotels, as we travelled around. They were all pretty much in the same price range, and all 3 stars. Villa Fontaine Ueno was the most disappointing of all. The location is good: it's VERY close to multiple underground stations, and there is an airport express... More

A very clean hotel in walking distance of the main Ueno Station. Small but spotless, air conditioned and adequate rooms and a decently generous Japanese breakfast. Plenty to see and do nearby, excellent as budget hotels go.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
