Stayed for 3 nights earlier this month. We expect small rooms when it comes to Tokyo hotels and this was no different but still ok. The bathroom was great and everything spotless. Biggest downfall was the terribly uncomfortable beds - you could sleep on the floor with the same level of comfort! The pillows weren't any better either. All 4... More

We were positively surprised about this hotel. Although the room was rather small, it was clean and had all things required to have a pleasant time. Breakfast was basic but good. The location is very quiet but Ueno, Asakusa and the Tokyo skytree are in walking distance. All in all recommended!

No atmosphere, not terribly handy for location and full of tour groups. Having said that it is very clean, the double bed was fine for one large foreigner and I slept like a log. The brekky was fine. It is also walking distance for a night out in Asakusa which I highly recommend.

I have travelled to Tokyo this month having got back a few days ago. I have quite mixed feelings about this hotel, it has some good points and bad points. In terms of location, it's great. You are a 5 minute walk from the nearest subway which is located on the circular Oedo line (which you can take to Daimon... More

Stayed here on stop 5 of my round the world jaunt. Travelled to UENO Kiesie Station from Narita, and taxi to hotel(5-10mins) 750 Japanese Yen. My room was compact as you would expect, but spotlessly clean. Bath with shower and a 'techy' toilet....(heated seat, shower and bidet). Fastest free WiFi I have encountered in a hotel. Breakfast included soup, eggs,salad... More

We were only in Tokyo for one night, passing through, so we chose this hotel as Ueno is a lively place to stay. There are many good restaurants and pubs close to the hotel. The hotel rooms were on the small side, ok for one night but not somewhere I'd chose to stay for longer. Breakfast was a messy affair,... More

I chose this hotel because of its location that was convenient for the night before travelling to the airport. Free breakfast was a bit like an assembly line and hectic but overall it was ok as we can't expect more for the price I paid in Tokyo. In short it was a practical hotel.

I enjoyed this hotel although the size was small, it came with everything you need. Make sure you book the twin room if you have 2 ppl, semi double in japan is too small for us too tall girls of 5"7 and 5"8. The free breakfast was also good before heading out early in the morning to disneyland and other... More

My wife and I spent one night here. The room was smaller than a typical room in the United States. It was good for our one night there. It would be sufficent room for just me. A longer stay for the two of us would have been a bit tight. The location is not far from the Ueno train station,... More

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

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.
