Perfect location, great value (140 US$), occupancy 90% Japanese, 9% Korean (most speak Japanese), 1% other foreigners so little need to speak English or provide the typical foreign traveler advice. 5 days a week there is one woman at the front desk who speaks good English, can answer questions, is friendly and helpful: Ishizawa. Terrific, she saved our 4 days... More

The Park Side Hotel Located to the south of Ueno Park, this small hotel has been my Japanese home for years. While the location is amazing – less than 10 minutes from the Ueno station – there are some issues with this house of charm. Firstly the staff are capable of being extremely short and rude. While this is virtually... More

Spent 3 nights at hotel we had used on previous visits some years ago. Reserved twin room as offers more space at modest additional cost. Fairly easy to walk from Ueno JR (a major junction), 10+ minutes, shorter walk to Keisei station (not a JR station) and its fast direct services to Narita airport (Y2400pp); there are also other nearby...

The Hotel Park Side is a good option for the weary traveller. Friendly and professional, the staff can help you with almost anything you need. I found their English is a little limited but is still more extensive than my Japanese, and we got assistance with everything we needed during our stay. Having just got off a 14 hour flight... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in December, 2012. Had a twin room, which turned out to be a smoking room although they didn't ask me at check-in whether I wanted smoking or not. The room was pretty smelly from old smoke but other than that it was pretty decent. I had a nice view of Ueno Park. The desk... More

We recently stayed there for a night in the standard twin room. When we called the front desk for an extra bath towel and a pillow, the reply was simply 'no'. We was very surprised by the answer, so we thought that they might not have understood our request, hence, we repeated the request. The reply is still 'no' and... More

This is an old-school business hotel... renovated, comfortable, well-located, but old-school. The building must be around 30-40 years old, but the front looks out over Shinobazunoike (Ueno Park's lotus-covered pond), which is a great view. The lobby is gloomy and a bit cramped, but respectable. Check-in was efficient, and as usual in a business hotel, you pre-pay. The room was... More

The hotel is 5 minutes walk from Ueno JR and Keisei station. We booked a japanese style room. It was clean and wide, compared to Japanese Hotel's standard. It's a pity it faced the back side of the hotel, with a view over Ueno's roofs and Tokyo's crows, not the Park's pond. No non-smiking japanese style room were available. Nevertheless... More

This restaurant is a perfectly pleasant place to stay, and is very convenient, being a block or so away from the Keisei Ueno train station (to catch the express from Narita Airport), the JR Ueno Station (to catch the trains and subways all around Tokyo), the Ameyoko Markets (which are adjacent to Ueno station), as well as Ueno Park itself...
