Good location, good service and good equipment. There is a spa facility. I was disappointed with the queue waiting for breakfast (15 min). Breakfast itself wasn't impressive... very small room as for 4* and even smaller bathroom. I didn't like it...

We picked this hotel largely down to the reviews and also we didn't want to be in central Tokyo. On the basis that you will be arriving by train from Tokyo Central, remember to take the Shinobazu exit as this will bring you out under the railway tracks, which is the right direction. Any other exit will involve a longer... More

This was one of the best hotels we stayed at during our entire trip! It's conveniently located about a 10 minute walk from Ueno station and right across from the lovely Ueno Park. The staff were very helpful and spoke a lot of English, more than at most hotels. Since we arrived a few minutes before our room was ready,... More

We stayed in four different hotels during our trip and this was the best by quite a way. It was just really comfortable and welcoming with everything you could ever need provided - snacks, water, coffee, just about every toiletry imagineable. There was even a foot/leg massager in the room. Our room had a view over the park and the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Coco Grand Ueno-Shinobazu for 7D/3N. From Narita Airport, one can take the Keisei Skyliner (40 minute ride) to the hotel. The station is a 5-minute walk to the hotel. There were 6 of us so we stayed in 2 Economy double rooms and 1 zen twin room (slightly bigger Japanese style rooms). The view was... More

This hotel was on the edge of Ueno park and we had a great view over the park to the temple. It is also handy for the station and various restaurants. It's a bit touristy area and it has a red light district just behind it which I have to say we did NOT feel worried in. But still it... More

I am staying at Coco Grand Ueno while attending a conference at the university of Tokyo. The hotel staff have been wonderful and very helpful, and my inability to speak Japanese has not been a problem. My room is superior king- it is cozy, but that's to be expected in Japanese hotels. The bed is extremely comfortable, room is spotlessly... More

Great location, lively neighbourhood, lots of little nice touches - snacks, tea/coffee, vibrating cushions/pilows, air purifiers etc.. A pretty room, "see thru" bathroom. Definitely stay here again. Gets booked out pretty quickly. Great view of Ueno Park. Travel light as space is tight. All the electronic cables etc..provided in room itself - charge your ipads etc... easily. Happy vibe. Hotel...

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.
