As I did not find any helpful english reviews for this hotel and booked it more or less just because of the good location and the good price, I decided to write this little review.
I stayed in Candeo Hotel in November 2010 for 8 nights. I booked the hotel last minute 4 days before arriving in Tokyo. I got the room for an unbelievably low rate (around 35 Euro per night) which is comparable to what you pay for a good youth hostel with shared bathroom in Tokyo.
Candeo Hotel is located 3 minutes away from Uguisudani station (which is one stop from Ueno station with the Yamanote Line). From Ueno, you can easily access all neighborhoods of Tokyo.
Although I got the smallest room (I think 15 or 17 square meters), the room is quite big for Japanese standards. The Room is equipped with a nice bathroom, a good bed, desk, 32 inch TV with free video on demand, telephone and free internet via lan cable. In the lobby (and probably in the floors next to the lobby) there is also free wireless lan. However, being on the 9th floor, I did not have a wifi connection there.
Since the booking did not include breakfast, I did not try the food.
The attitude of the staff was really good and very nice, it just wasnt too helpful, since they barely spoke english.
As the location is directly behind Uguisudani station, it can get a little bit noisy at times.
If you have a light sleep, you should keep this in mind. For me, it did not really bother me much.
Overall, the hotel was really good to stay in, especially for the great bargain rate.
The hotel can easily be compared to a good 3-star hotel in germany.
