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 unheard of in the hospitality industry, the staff – and one assumes the management – have mastered this trait.
The rooms are generally pleasant. All are smoking, which is somewhat of a drag for the non smokers. While the immediately visible room is quite clean, if you move a few things you will generally find a lot of dust and uncleaned surfaces. During one visit I turned over the futon, only to find it terribly stained and dirty. They replaced it immediately.
During one visit to the hotel I left a Mont Blanc pen on the desk, which went missing immediately. Yes it is my fault, but how do you lock everything down. Now I have a system – Do not disturb signs most of the time.
All of this said, it is a great price.
