The rooms were nice, but had a little smell of cigarettes, maybe because we our room was near the fire escape stairs. The staff knew little English. There was wifi but the signal was really week. The location is great, really near the kuramae subway station.

This is one of the hotels that we stay during our tour in Japan. The room that we stayed was relatively bigger than other rooms in different hotels that we stayed, with a sofa and extra space to put our luggage and stoller in a corner without blocking our way. Some of the facilities provided inside the room was a... More

Hotel Kuramae has a good location, Kuramae station (Oedo and Azakusa Lines) is around 10 min walk away. Azakusa park can be reached on foot by 20 min walking. There are some shops and restaurant around and also the hotel has its own restaurant, I haven't eaten in there, so I do not know if it's worth. The biggest problem... More

We stayed in Kuramae Hotel for few days, with twin beds. The space was quite limited, especially when you have luggages. Inside the room, there was fridge, tv, water boiler, complimentary tea, and also one small couch. Wifi was included. A hint on the bathroom, though it's with a small tub (more like a square shape than the usual tub... More

I used the twin room for 5 consecutive days and i was satisfied enough with this hotel service. It was a clean room, and they always gave us new yukatas everyday. Located near subway station (about 100m from Kuramae station), this hotel made us easy to go everywhere in Tokyo. The minus is,..the staff cannot speak english,..but it's ok, we... More

Considering I got a room here for the same price as I'd pay for either of the nearby hostels, it must be said that you don't pay much. This smoking-only hotel has been around for a while, judging by the nicotine on just about everything. And the windows don't open, so it's up to the airco to get some fresh... More

Depending on what time you take the train from Narita, you can actually head in without any transfers and vice versa. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat on site, but there are plenty of places to eat in the surrounding area. The hotel is a smoking hotel, there are no non-smoking rooms. If you don't... 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.
