Me & my friends stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is in good location, walking distance from Okachimachi or Ueno station. Small room but this is quite normal in Japan. Clean bedroom. From what I remember the service at the hotel was good. This hotel is good for a few nights or if you're on a budget.

My friend and I chose this hotel because it was nearer to access to Tokyo Dome for our Big Bang concert and the prices get steeper with closer proximity. It was lesser than SGD 100 per night since we shared one bed which can be shared with 2 people and it seems really small. The room was also very small... More

They had a small room, but it was expected since it is in such a convenient location in Tokyo.The location is great (close to train/subway stations and sightseeing spots), and room is clean. I forgot a phone charger there when I checked out, but they found it and passed it on to my friend who was still in Tokyo. I... More

The hotel location is great with Ueno Park nearby and with some great bargain shopping nearby. JR station, Okachimachi about 10 mins walk away and Metro station, Yushima, a 5 mins walk. Rooms are small and the double bed can be a tight squeeze for two. Staff are friendly enough and try their best to please in spite of their... More

Room rather small, with 2 big luggage won't have enough space to walk inside room. Clean. I found the bed abit hard for me thus it's individual preference and good value of money..lots of eateries near by..staffs were friendly and helpful with directions..

A bit dated rooms, not as spotlessly clean as all the other hotels where we have been in Japan but yet a good choice. Well located, nice and friendly staff, good WIFI. The hotel offers breakfast but we have not tried it. We could hear the metro line from somewhere below but it was not loud enough to bother our... More

The hotel located in a small and quiet alley with JR line, Tokyo metro line and Doen metro line nearby. Easy access by Keisei Skyliner train from Narita airport, and Tokyo monorail from Haneda airport (get off at hamamatsucho station, and transfer to JR line to okachimachi station) Lots of restaurants, shopping mall and cosmetic shops within 10 minutes' walk,...

We recently spent 5 nights in Tokyo and I chose this hotel because it was close to Ueno Station, which is where the Keisei Skyliner train from Narita airport arrives. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from Ueno station (or a five minute walk from the Ueno-Okachimachi subway stop), on a side street so it's not too noisy... More

Very small room, but still clean never the less. Pillow is not very comfortable. Very tiny reception, tiny bath room, I think the westerner will have problem taking shower in there... We arrived late but no problem. It's about 8 mins walk to the nearest station, we took a taxi to Ueno 3mins to catch the Shinkansen the next morning... More

For about 75USD per night (breakfast excluded) and given its location, this hotel is a perfect base for exploring Tokio. Ueno park, Yushima Tenmangu shrine or Ameyoko shopping street are within 10 minutes walk, others like Sensoji temple, Tokyo Sky Tree Tower, Akihabara or Chiyoda Imperial Gardens can be reached by subway in 15mins. The hotel itself is pretty ordinary... 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.
