Firstly, I use the inverted commas as we only lasted 30 minutes before checking out and finding emergency accommodation at 11pm on a Saturday in Tokyo. The reaction from the incredibly rude receptionist and the lack of a refund even being mentioned implied that this must happen all of the time. After being spoken to awfully by the staff and...

After being greeted by half-broken, flickering fluorescent lights and rude staff, my friend and I should have left but we decided to give the place a chance. After paying the initial 2200¥, one had to pay extra for the shoe locker. The ladies' floor had extra security locks that did not work. The capsule was stuffy, smelled musty and was...

I made a point of coming back here since it was convenient and cheap, and we enjoyed our stay on two previous visits. This time, they weren't letting foreigners in. Apparently in the summer (busy) season, it's Japanese only. Whatever, but they were quite rude about it to me. I was there within fifteen minutes of opening and they wouldn't...

Me and my hubby got one room with skytree tower view, which is nice. The room was small that we quite confuse how to unpacked our luggage. When we arrived, they provide an oldschool CRT tv, but the day after, they said that they will replace the tv with the new one, an LCD tv. Quite a funny experience though...

I chose this capsule hotel to experience what is it like to stay in a capsule. Definitely not for those who are claustrophobic. The bathroom is communal and an experience by itself. One night is more than enough for the experience. If you choose to stay for more than one night, you have to check out and to check in...

I wouldn't stay here longer for one night. I tried this place in May to experience what it's like to live in a capsule hotel and luckily we only booked it for one night. This place is perhaps the most unpleasant place I slept in during my stay in Japan. It's dirty, not very secure and definitely smells. The bathroom...

Let's cut to the chase. You can stay in Tokyo for about $22 a night. How many other places offer that? The pros of this place are the price (obviously), but the location is extremely convenient if you can walk 10 minutes to Ueno Station. As well, the amenities are far more generous than people give them credit for. The...

The location is very good and price is very cheap, but facilities are old and minimum. For baggages, there is no free locker rooms, so you will need to pay 200JPY-500JPY per day.

I had booked a capsule online for this place. On arrival the guy at the reception was smoking. The whole place smells like old cigarette smoke and dust. At the word 'grim' in the dictionary there's a picture of this place. It was green and dark and old, as in not nice old. No english spoken at the reception -...

I stayed in one of the single rooms (I.e. not in a capsule) on the ninth floor after arriving in Tokyo. It's easy to find and a good location. The venue is obviously quite old as the plastic interior of the bathroom has an aged look to it. They've obviously managed to keep it very clean in order for make...

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.
