A great little hostel in the Ueno area, which is centrally located to a variety of Tokyo amenities. Rooms are quite small—but they are clean and well presented—so for the small price you pay per night, it is excellent value! There’s a little area downstairs where you can access wi-fi, eat and drink, and chat to other guests. Oak Hotel... More

Staff speak excellent English. Location from Ueno JR station a bit far (over 1 km), so best to ask hotel staff to email you one of their A3 size maps. Hotel is just 30 metres off a side street on your left, so keep an eye for a bus stop on the main street near the entrance. Hotel looks very... More

Really great location for getting around Tokyo and friendly, helpful staff. Only 10mins to Ueno major station, can get direct to Narita airport in 40mins on the skyline. Room was clean but very small and basic for the money. Noisy generator outside our window. Overall it was fine for us as we didn't spend much time in the hotel! You... More

Well located, within walking distance to Ueno station. Small room and toilet but comfortable enough. You have to pay a deposit of 1000 yens for the room key. We had to do an early check out (reception was still closed) and hotel staff facilitated it by refunding the deposit the night before. The hotel has a common kitchen.

I stayed at Oak Hotel 3 years ago for nearly 2 weeks and I loved it so much that I didn't mind staying here again this time around. It is quite a walk from Ueno station (10-15 mins) if you have heavy luggage (and if its 1 degrees celcius outside) but you can always take the Inaricho station(2 mins walk)... More

This was my second time staying at the Oak. Its a fantastic value and a great location. A quick walk from the subway and easy to find. Rooms are small and basic but clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and good with English. I have recommended the hotel to many friends and all have loved it and or returned!

After a lot of research on hotels in the Ueno area, I got a room at this hotel and have to say it was a great experience overall. The hotel is an older property that you can tell has been maintained for quite a while but everything is clean and works. The reports of the staffs friendliness are not exaggerated... 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.
