The hotel is located next to Ueno Train Station (not the underground). But the underground is not too far away either. We stayed there with my sister and visited mostly the area nearby for three days. The area is lively and has very interesting sites. But, not good for a classic tourist. We visited the park, cemetery, residential streets, with... More

Directly opposite Ueno Keisei train station, which means you can be at Narita airport within an hour. Its just a short walk from Ueno Park and from the hotel roof you have a nice view across the Lotus Pond. Rooms are quite small, the bathroom has just a sit up bath. Doors are so low - I am only 5ft... More

Stayed here due to being part of a tour. Cigarette burns in duvet covers (non-smoking room!), bathroom cramped with wobbly, old toilet and shower that floods the bathroom. Speaking of the shower, when *anyone* on the floor flushes the toilet the water becomes scorching hot!!! Plus the mildew is everywhere!!! The good things: Right across from the station that has...

A Gem in Ueno Park -- Kinuya Hotel is a very good economy business men's hotel right in Ueno Park. It is just across the street from the rear exit of the Ueno Keisei station. The hotel's restaurant is Kuromon Cafe Restaurant. All the museums, the park itself, the zoo, the train station( s ) and shopping areas are at... More

I stayed in Dec 2013 and got a room facing the street. Despite the cons, I will definitely stay in this hotel again (if I planned in Ueno side of Tokyo) as it is very value for money and convenient. Pros - 1) hotel is extremely near to one of the exit/entrance of Ueno Keisei station. The hotel is literally... More

I stayed in the Kinuya Hotel in August, and will definately stay there again. The rooms might be basic, but they are cheaper than some. I thought the place was quaint, had a strange charm to it. And the service from the duty manager Mr Takamura was spot on.

old but clean customer service is average. no internet in the room but there are 2 terminals in the lobby. Non smoking triple room but can still smell the cigarettes. This is a smoking hotel. Room and toilet very small. Hard to maneuver around. If you are not looking for luxury and just a decent place to sleep its good... More

I have not given the Kinuya top score, because - as other people have noted in the past - smoking is permitted there - and if you find the smell of cigarette smoke intolerable, dont stay there. I am most definitely NOT a smoker - but can get used to the Kinuya's, ever present ,background 'hum'. Whenever I stay in... More

Centrally located next to Ueno Park, Ueno Keisei Airport Train Station, Subway Station, JR Station... So it is very easy to get to anywhere in Tokyo! The room is small, the windows open to nowhere (... just a fire exit staircase). The room is small, but well maintained and cleaned (and non smoking). For the price, it can't be beaten.... More

I guess enough is said about the excellent location of this hotel, and the old slightly run down condition of the rooms, etc. So, as long as one does not expect luxury, but clean and comfortable room for sleep, and out most of the day, this hotel is surely a fine choice. Their room rate is considered reasonable in Japan.... More
