Stayed four days at the Oak, cute little room with bunks, very small but we were out all day anyway, just needed somewhere to sleep and have a shower. Airconditioning great, bliss at the end of a long humid day. We made own meals a few times using the kitchen, again, small but adequate, saved money. Impressed with the staff,... More

It has all that you need. It was small, but we expected that and we don't need a big room anyways. We booked a Japanese style room and found it to be very comfortable. We were out all day, so if you aren't the type of person who plans on staying in your hotel all day you'll be fine. It... More

I've just spent 4 nights here and would be happy to stay again. The location is good, near Ueno station and a short walk to many attractions. The room was small, clean and generally adequate. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke reasonably good english. They've got good instructions (and photos) explaining easy access from both Narita... More

Everything worked: small kitchen for use of guests was useful; included washing maching. Wifi connection good, and there were a couple of computers for guests. The room was quite small, but we didn't spend much time in it! Bathroom was tiny but it was functional. Staff spoke good English. The futon was a double - we hadn't been sure about... More

This hotel was located 10-15 mins from Ueno station however for 160 yen you can take the train from Ueno one stop to Inaricho station and the hotel is 2 mins from the station exit. We got a Japanese style room and it was TINY. Make sure you book a western room and ask to see it when you check... More

I stayed in a semi-double for two nights. The location was convenient - Narita Airport express train to Ueno Station; from there i took a taxi for 700 yen to Oak Hotel. It is walk-able, but i had 3 pieces of luggage and was coming in late from a loooong flight from the US. The staff speak great English (although... More

You can hardly change your mind in the rooms, that's how small they are! But they're clean, the staff is helpful, and the location is very convenient to the subway. On the other hand, the subway it's convenient to is well up on the northeast side of central Tokyo. Happily, the subway line is the Ginza, which gets you downtown... More

There is a good reason the Oak Hotel has been rated so highly as a budget hotel in Tokyo. As others have mentioned, the staff here are great. They are very friendly and helpful, and will direct you to the places to see in Tokyo. The hotel is close to the Ueno station, giving easy access to Narita airport, the... More

Oak hotel's a great place to stay. Rooms may be a little small (including the toilet) but it feels cosy and comfortable. Lobby contains many useful information for tourists looking to plan their day ahead with not just the typical places for you to visit but includes railway information and many more. Location is also fantastic. Very close to a... More

We stayed here 7 nights in total. Two on the first leg and five on the return leg. I have stayed in business hotels in Tokyo before and this was one of the better ones. It is reasonably priced and in a great location. Only a 5 minute walk from Ueno station. The staff were great and dealt with any... More
