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.

My Fiance and I stayed here for 9 nights and it was great. The breakfast was better than expected seeing as it was complimentary. The rooms were big enough for the 2 of us plus our giant suitcases. We were pleasantly surprised as I had read that rooms in Tokyo were very small. The staff were friendly, spoke English and... More

Clean rooms. Big bathroom compare to the size of the room. Friendly staff. The subway is only a few minutes walk. Breakfast (included), in buffet-style, is served in the lobby of the hotel. This is not the best breakfast-location. There is no WIFI in the rooms, only in the lobby.

This hotel has a motel like feel to it. Clean rooms with nice views of the neighborhood. Breakfast is spartan, and finishes by 9. Location is great though, a couple of stations within a 5-10 minute walk. There are also several parks within walking distance.

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.
