This family run hotel is delightful. Kyoko speaks several languages including English and French. The rooms are not large, but this is meant to be a businessman's hotel. I stayed 10 nights and there is no closet but you do have hangers for your close. the Bathroom suite is compact but functional. The tall tub will accommodate a good soak... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and it was so wonderfully situated - close to the Ueno station, and right in the middle of some great dining options. It was great to have a ground floor suite (with such heavy luggage). The beds were small, but delightfully firm (the way I like them). The decor in the room is... More

Hotel new Tohoku is located close to Ueno station but a bit difficult to find. Study the maps carefully! When found the hotel is a conveniently located base to explore Ueno area. The family running the hotel are very friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome. However the hotel shows considerable tear and wear, the rooms are very small... More

I found this hotel to be quite pleasant. The people who own it are so kind. They told us about good restaurants in the area and even held our luggage for us for a few hours after we checked out. The rooms are small, but not uncomfortable. There is free wifi and a computer available for use. It's quiet and... More

The staffs were GREAT! they even let me keep the luggage while I was out shopping on the last day of the stay. HOWEVER, the room was small even for Tokyo's standard. The bed was VERY HARD! I do enjoy hard mattress but this was just like sleeping on the floor. The room was quite muggy as well. There was... More

The hotel was 1.5 block from the main road in front of the JR Ueno Station. It was closest to Tokyo Metro's Hibiya line's Ueno exit. We had the twin room (two twin beds). It was surprising large by Japanese standard. Although the bedding seemed old, the room and the bathroom were clean and comfortable. The AC was somewhat noisy,... More

If you go in Tokyo and you want to stay on a small, but friendly and quite hote, do not miss this hotel! Hotel is very close to Ueno station, so it's perfect for reaching subway, JR station, skyline to Narita airport and so on. Owner and personnel of hotel are so warm and so kind that they make you...

Hotel New Tohoku is in a great location, just a 5 minute walk east from Ueno Station on the JR Yamanote loop line. Cross over the pedestrian bridge into the street between Jyoyo Bank and Nihon Seimei Bldg. Proceed several streets east. New Tohoku is on the quiet side street with the Sanyo Bldg at the corner. As an added... More

lots of bad reviews for this place site small rooms and poor service. I try to approach hotels from the perspective of value, how much did I pay and did I get my moneys worth. This hotel is hard to find, but I came across that a lot in my stay in Japan. The hotel is in a great location.... More
