Yes, the rooms are small but very functional. We had a river view but the charm wears off quickly. Save $10 and take the street side, it is very quiet as the heavy windows are soundproof. Breakfast is a cut above Toyoko Inns. Evening ramen [free] is excellent. Great staff. Location is great for access to train to Nikko or... More

Perfect location for exploring the asakusa area of tokyo. We had a river view from our room. There is a foot spa that you can use for free on the top floor with cool views of the city. You can order free ramen noodles after 9.30pm at the breakfast area if you are peckish! They are basic but welcome after... More

Our room was actually spacious (double room), with amazing views overlooking the skytree & river. Very close to the station and walking distance from Akusaka Temple & local shopping areas. Breakfast had a good selection as well. Definitely value for money!

The location worked out nice traveling from haneda airport and to get around. It is very close to the subway station. The room was clean and looked out towards the river. The only thing you need to know is that it is cramped.

We've been staying at Dormy Inn's for the last few trips to Japan and enjoy the food and amenities. This Dormy inn is an Express - which I didn't understand at first, but I think to mean that their breakfast is odd in that you have to preselect the day before whether you'd like Western or Japanese breakfast. Western breakfast... More

Location is good, near the Asakusa metro station. There are departmental stores, shops, restaurants around the areas. And is walking distance to Asakusa Temple, shopping areas, etc. The room was small but consider comfortable. The breakfast was fine, you can choose the main course i.e. Japanese or Western, other side dishes are at buffer counter. The good thing is the... More

Agree with many of the other reviews here and the location is excellent being a few meters from the metro entrance. Good breakfast and the very small room was clean and well equipped with all you will need. The baths and footspar are outside on the top floor. I didn't find the service was good with indifference from some reception... More

Quiet, comfortable hotel. The room was small but quite comfortable. The hotel is 1/2 block from the Asakusa metro station. The breakfast was fine, and there is an onsen on the top floor with a view of the river. The staff were all very helpful.

I liked the convenience of this location, the staff were friendly and efficient, the breakfast was great. Downside was the smell of stale cigarettes and the lack of soundproofing. I was next door to a snorer so the noise, and the smell of old cigarettes, really spoiled my sleep. Could also have done without the thick duvet. A blanket and... 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.
