Ueno First City offers basic accommodation at a 2 1/2 star (US equivalent) level. The front desk is staffed 24 hours per day. Using a translator app in your smart phone largely overcomes basic communication problems. Location. The hotel is well-located, with handy access to at least four subway/train systems. It also is near the Ueno park, which contains a... More

The location is outstanding. The price is good. The hotel is close to multiple subway lines, JR lines and the Airport Express Keisei Skyliner. We could also walk to all sights in Ueno and to Akihabara. Staff are nice and efficient. They offer guests to choose a toiletry / beauty product upon registration which is a nice touch! The room...

Located 10 min from Keisei Ueno station, within 5 min of 4 subway stations on different subway lines this hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the city -- nothing is more than 30 min away. Twin room was small but comfortable, all expected amenities (air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, coffee maker, fridge, etc.) in place. Squeaky clean and functional. Luxury hotel... More

We stayed here for six nights and the staffs were very accommodating and friendly, although the room might be smaller compared to other hotels, their room size is already enough for two people, it's spacious enough for four luggage, two big luggage and two smaller, hand carry size luggage. It is also very near a lot of tourist spots, just... More

Me & my friends stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is in good location, walking distance from Okachimachi or Ueno station. Small room but this is quite normal in Japan. Clean bedroom. From what I remember the service at the hotel was good. This hotel is good for a few nights or if you're on a budget.

My friend and I chose this hotel because it was nearer to access to Tokyo Dome for our Big Bang concert and the prices get steeper with closer proximity. It was lesser than SGD 100 per night since we shared one bed which can be shared with 2 people and it seems really small. The room was also very small... More

They had a small room, but it was expected since it is in such a convenient location in Tokyo.The location is great (close to train/subway stations and sightseeing spots), and room is clean. I forgot a phone charger there when I checked out, but they found it and passed it on to my friend who was still in Tokyo. I... More

The hotel location is great with Ueno Park nearby and with some great bargain shopping nearby. JR station, Okachimachi about 10 mins walk away and Metro station, Yushima, a 5 mins walk. Rooms are small and the double bed can be a tight squeeze for two. Staff are friendly enough and try their best to please in spite of their... More

Room rather small, with 2 big luggage won't have enough space to walk inside room. Clean. I found the bed abit hard for me thus it's individual preference and good value of money..lots of eateries near by..staffs were friendly and helpful with directions..

A bit dated rooms, not as spotlessly clean as all the other hotels where we have been in Japan but yet a good choice. Well located, nice and friendly staff, good WIFI. The hotel offers breakfast but we have not tried it. We could hear the metro line from somewhere below but it was not loud enough to bother our... More

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.
