the room size was better than average japanese hotel n staff were nice. It seemes to be popular for big party as there were always big groups checking in. though a little bit dated, it was properly maintained. however, the distance to JR station was longer than expected. besides, could not adjust room temperature and no window could be opened....

Recommended hotel for tourist who have a limited time or just landed at Tokyo. No need preparing towel, toothbrush, etc because they are provided by hotel. Reservation by phone much better. The staff can help you with their capability in english language

Stayed 2 nights here and was disappointed mainly on Location. Cons. 1. Chisun Hotel Entrance has steps after steps before reached lobby. No Rams so it is difficult for families with large lugagges. A big "No" for us. 2. Location is easily 20 mins away if you push your luggage from Ueno station. Not easily located as the hotel is... More

We stayed here twice on our recent trip to Japan. Close to the train station and large and museum. It is an older part of Toyko, but is certainly a very clean and safe part of it. There is also a subway in the next street. The staff were very helpful and were always trying to show use where to... More

The hotel is located in a convenient location in Ueno. The room is generally clean, functional and small as expected in most Japanese hotels. Everything is satisfactory except the room is a bit dated, a little bit of touch up would make the ambience better.

The double bed is quite small for two person, but it still fits. All basic amenities are there, and the room is very clean. Helpful staffs who speak English. Two convenient stores are just around the corner. About 5 minute walk to Ueno station and 3 minute walk to Inaricho station. Great value for money.

For the price, I was very pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. It was still small but I find it a huge improvement compared to other tiny hotels in Tokyo. The hotel is just 2 streets away from the train station, which was 1 stop away from the main Ueno station where you can come in conveneiently from... More

This is my 2nd time staying at the Chisun Hotel Ueno and I have no complaints. The Hotel is well located in Ueno, with only a short walk to Ueno station, Ueno Park and various rail lines. The rooms are normal size for Tokyo and very clean. If you're happy for a nice 30 minute stroll, you can also walk... More

I have stayed in several hotels in Tokyo and Chisun Hotel Ueno is one of my favourites. The location is really convenient -close to Ueno station, which is a beautiful spot in the city and has several underground and JR lines, and also the shinkansen. There is another station, Inaricho, which is really close to the hotel. It is not... More

We had a short stay in Ueno and found this conventional hotel online. It is indeed walking distance from the Ueno train stations. If you have a metro train pass, it's very convenient to walk to/from and a much closer walk than the main Ueno stations. Along the walk to the metro station are convenience stores to pick up snacks.... 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.
