We got this room for ¥6000 for the night. Close to everything - subway, food, attractions etc. Yes it is a small room, but so are most in Japan. Comes with own bathroom too. Check in isnt till 3pm but they will hold your bags till then. English speaking reception also.

Hotel is close to one of the most popular tourist attractions in Tokyo: Sensō-ji, and also the skytree tower just around 10mins walk. It is just 3 minutes walk from kuramae station. However, this hotel is about 25 minutes metro tavel to shopping area such as Shinjuku and Shibuya, we don't really recommend this hotel if you want to focus... More

Good location, 3min. away from subway station, we liked the Asakusa region, close to the Skytree tower. Be prepared, 11 m² are really small. It's not a room were you'll spend some time, from our point of view it's just good for sleeping. The bed was too small and unconfortable for us and we didn't really have space for our... More

The room was really small with a very poor layout. It was difficult to get continuous water pressure in the shower. The bathroom was tiny and when sitting on the toilet my knees almost touched the door. In terms of location it was close to a train station but a bit too far away from other things like shops and...

Our group had 10 rooms reserved in this location, for 4 nights. Check in time is 3pm. We arrived at 1pm, 2 hours early. The front desk was so inflexible, they refused to make even one room available for us to place valuables in without charging us extra. So 40 room-nights isn't worth much. We had to lug heavy items...

Nice room, the men working there wasn't friendly, could smile more to the customers. The thing that ticked me off the most was that the WIFI connection only lasted for a minute. I had to connect, disconnect, reconnect continuously just to check out a few things which was incredibly frustrating. Aside from that, the public bath on the 12th floor... More

Very clean rooms. Fitted with a Tempur bed and Shiseido shampoos. Altough the room is very small it has everything you need. Comes with a small bed (i guess 120cm). We liked it a lot because of the convenient location: 5 minute walking distance from Asakusa station and Sensoji temple. We had a great deal on the price! Downside: we... More

You are near every place. Go to Odaiba by amazing automated train from Shimbashi. It crosses Rainbow bridge, 756 m long at 100 m above the ocean. You can have an idea watching on You Tube my video : name TOKYO URBEX. 2 versions. Say if U like !

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.
