As everybody say: Excellent location. However, worst hotel seen in years. Washroom full of mold and absolutely not renovated. Public washrooms in better shape. My girlfriend did not even want to walk bare foot. And you have to leave the key at the front desk as son as you go out, even If it is only for 5 minutes and... More

We had a great stay here! The staffs were friendly, helpful, and able to communicate with us very well. It was a comfortable stay. I recommend this hotel since they have a perfectly good size of room - compare to other regular hotels in the area. Onsen room was clean and fresh. Don't miss it if you come here! So... More

Stayed one night. Very close to UENO Station. Convenient. No need to haul heavy luggage all across town. Low price. Clean but tired looking furnishings and bedding. I would suggest not ordering the breakfast downstairs. The food was too basic and not worth the price. Walk outside and go find another restaurant a short half block away. Front desk staff... More

We stayed for one night before joining an Intrepid small group tour of Japan. Really easy location directly outside of exit number 1 of Ueno Station and next to Ueno Park. Large (by Japanese Hotel standards) well appointed room with a lounge and two single beds, small balcony ( not child safe) that overlooked a lake, with views of the... More

We had two nights at this hotel. The main reason for staying at the Kinuya was that our Intrepid “Land of the Rising Sun” tour kicked off here, but as we arrived in Tokyo a day early, we arranged an extra night here. It is very convenient to Keisei Ueno station – right across the (narrow) street. But note –... More

One of the more reasonably priced hotels beside the UENO station. It is in between the lake and JR station. The room toilet is a bit small. Check in/out was fast. Pretty standard service/room quality for Japanese hotels. Only 1 thing we didn't like was the very thin pillow. The night market-Ameyoko Market is really long and sells varied goods... More

Enjoyed our stay here. We were a family of four and had two twin rooms next to each other. Kids in one room aged 13 and 14 and us in the other. Tiny doors to rooms - cute. Otherwise tiny rooms as normal. Kids very close to us which worked well. We were on 8th floor with views overlooking the... More

Very basic amenities, but generally clean and relatively comfortable. The room was tiny, the decor tired and in need of a freshen up. OK for one night. The staff were helpful. The location is great. Close to transport, Ueno Park, museums etc.

We stayed in a triple room for two night. The best location, small room but to be expected. Staff on reception were very helpful, the breakfast in the adjoining restaurant was very good. Would stay there again. A smell of smoke in the room but nit uncommon in Japan.

It’s close to the Keisei skyliner station by less than 1 minute walk and also 5 minute to JR Ueno station. It was also very convenience from Narita airport and go to the city by using JR.

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.
