We spent one night here. It is right outside the Keiseiueno station so its easy and fast to come from Narita Airport. It is also very close to the Ueno Park and our room was facing the park which was very relaxing. 0101 Department Store and lots of restaurants are just a few steps away. The room key has to... More

if you are coming to ueno with the keisei skyliner from narita airpot, turn right after the ticket gate and you can see the hotel's sign. check in was a breeze and throughout our 7 days stay, all staff were very friendly and helpful and they do speak some simple english. except for a big sized receptionist guy that was...

I almost rated the Kinuya excellent, but will restrain my enthusiasm in an effort hopefully not to mislead others. I stayed first in a capsule at the beginning of my three week Japan trip and then returned at end to a twin, non-smoking room (since I was unable to book a non-smoking single at that point). This was my first... More

We spent one night at this hotel. It's a simple hotel with no frills but very reasonably priced! Located right at Ueno park and at Ueno station, you couldn't be better placed. Rooms are simple, bright and clean. Bathroom is adequate but small, but not an issue. If your budget conscious then this place is good. Eat in the restaurant... More

I stayed here in November/ December 2014 for a few days each time, either side of a tour. I was in a single smoking room, which was en-suite. I don't smoke myself but this was the only option at the time of booking, and there wasn't a hugely offensive smoke smell in the room. The room was clean and comfortable... More

I stayed here on two nights bookending a business trip out of Tokyo. Hands-down the best aspect of the hotel is the location. As others have said, it is literally steps from the Keisei Ueno station, which has a direct train to Narita. After a 13 hour trans-pacific flight, an hour negotiating customs, and an hour on the train, it... More

Hotel needs a little refurbishing. Small rooms and small bathrooms. Airconditioning in one of the rooms that we stayed in was not working properly. Good thing that it wasn't that hot during our stay so we didn't bother to complain anymore. But one thing that works for this hotel is its proximity to the Keisei Ueno station. Literally opposite on... More

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...

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.
