I stayed in the Hotel Kuramae for one night in March 2016. The hotel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main sights of Asakusa and the train station. It's a very straight forward business hotel with no bells or whistles. I chose it as I was arriving in Tokyo on a red eye flight and was arriving there... More

The best thing about this place is the price. It is very cheap. Though rooms are very smalll and without wardrobes. Big balconies. Unfortunatley there is a cigarete smoke in whole bulding. Close to metro station, and great localization. I strongly recomend staying there when on budget,

Stay for a single rooms for 7 nights. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the subway station with friendly reception. A very compact hotel with basic facilities. Good stay for business and dislike crowded area. There are some restaurants close to the hotel with not much choice. Overall is nice and good value for money.

Smoky and dirty. Not well kept up. People allowed to smoke in lobby, so I guess they could smoke anywhere. Carpets and bed covers all stained. Not a nice place to stay. The Internet connection was, however, very good. Asked for a room with two beds, so we got a larger room than others in our group.

Thank Sunbeart

The rooms were nice, but had a little smell of cigarettes, maybe because we our room was near the fire escape stairs. The staff knew little English. There was wifi but the signal was really week. The location is great, really near the kuramae subway station.

This is one of the hotels that we stay during our tour in Japan. The room that we stayed was relatively bigger than other rooms in different hotels that we stayed, with a sofa and extra space to put our luggage and stoller in a corner without blocking our way. Some of the facilities provided inside the room was a... More

Hotel Kuramae has a good location, Kuramae station (Oedo and Azakusa Lines) is around 10 min walk away. Azakusa park can be reached on foot by 20 min walking. There are some shops and restaurant around and also the hotel has its own restaurant, I haven't eaten in there, so I do not know if it's worth. The biggest problem... More

We stayed in Kuramae Hotel for few days, with twin beds. The space was quite limited, especially when you have luggages. Inside the room, there was fridge, tv, water boiler, complimentary tea, and also one small couch. Wifi was included.

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.
