I usually stay in west Tokyo when I visit for work, but this time I had to chose a spot that was convenient to the city's major attractions as I had family with me. APA hotel Asakusa was a great choice. Everything was impeccable, which is pretty much standard in Japan, but the onsen on top of the hotel was... More

People mention how small this is and they weren't kidding: it was really tiny! I've traveled all over the world and this hotel definitely had the smallest room I've ever stayed it. It's fine for one person who doesn't spend very much time inside their room, but way too small for two people. The bathroom is also tiny with a... More

This hotel has very convenient access to Asakusa, my favorite area of tokyo. It is close to the metro stops and the train station for trains to Nikko. It is also very near the Asakusa line stop directly from the Narita airport so staying in this area has very easy airport access. The hotel was clean , pretty quiet with... More

We booked a double room with breakfast at $95/night and $175/night for a Saturday! Prices shoot up in the Saturday stay. Room is very,very small, even by Tokyo standards. Get the King room if you can as there is no where to put your luggage, not even under the bed. We have one suitcase in the area by the door... More

Close to Asakusa tourist spots and subway stations. I need to attend an event at Asakusa area, so the convenient location is a plus. To my surprise, transit from Shinjuku (my usual shopping area) to this hotel is rather easy. Hot bath at tge roof floor is an interesting gimmick. On the flip side, room is rather small. Not enough... More

The room was very (very) small, barely had place for our suitcases. There is a Japanese public bath on the 12th floor which was very nice and relaxing. Me and my wife really don't like cigarettes so we asked for a non-smoking room, when we got to the room it smelled like an ash tray, luckily asked for another room... More

I stayed in this hotel while I was on my trip to Tokyo. It is at a great price and I recommend this for a solo/couple, because it is a little small, but is worth it. The restaurant on the first floor is awesome and has great healthy food. I love Japan and Asakusa is a great place to go... More

We stayed here in April this year for the first time, and have booked to stay here again on our next visit to Tokyo. When traveling around Japan we stay most of our time in chain "business" hotels and splurge for a more expensive Inn out in the countryside where you want the bit of luxury. This is a good... 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.
