The hotel is situated close to Asakusa in a quiet area and it is close to both Asakusa and Ueno subway stations. The rooms are really small but all necessary amenities are nicely squeezed in. Larger rooms seem to come with significantly higher prices all over Japan, therefore we were aware of the room size before booking. All in all,... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of our Japan Trip in April. As we were really late it was one of the only affordable options in Tokyo at that time (Hanami!). Unfortunately the rooms were really tiny so that we didn't even have the space to open one single suitcase. We had to get creative and used the... More

This was my first trip to Japan and to be honest I didn't know what to expect. I was always told that Japan make use of every space their is and this was not a lie! The room is very small but it is very cozy. The bed was comfy and everything is really tightly packed together. There is not... More

While hotel is conveniently located close to Asakusa tourist destinations, rooms are extremely small to make it inconvenient for use. There is practically no windows (window technically exists, but with matt glass, and if you open it you see wall of the building next to it. There was looong line for breakfast, some 30 min waiting time to get into... More

This hotel located 5-10minutes walk from Kuramae Station A6exit. I was here for business so I was pretty satisfied that I was able to reach my office using Odeo line from this station. Next to the hotel there is a 7 and i holdings (7 eleven) shop. But if you are here for shopping, you might need more walk to... More

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

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.
