We decided to stay here in order to catch early morning flight in time.
The room price is not cheap and not really expensive compared to the location.
The hotel building is pretty old but still clean and neat.
There are many things to like about this hotel.
First, it's within walking distance of Ueno and other metro stations yet it's situated in a small street a block from the noise of a busy street.
Second, the room and the bathroom are clean and...More
Very friendly and helpful staff at the hotel.
Booked a Tatami room which is quiet small but we used the hotel just to rest anyway, so we were fine with that.
Subway around the corner, the bigger Ueno station about a 10 min walk away
The single room had a 1.5 person bed. The private bathroom and the room were very well equipped, there was a small bath tub; a trouser press, a kettle with welcome mate, well working wi-fi, even an alarm, etc. Not suitable for romantic charming holidays,...More

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.
