I ordered a 3 person room just for myself, but this room was too small even for me alone. Rest of the hotel is good: service is very good; they also have a good public bath. As tourist, the location is decent as it's possible to walk to Tokyo Sky tree and Asakusa and maybe Ueno.

A small hostel style hotel with western or traditional rooms with just enough space to lay down your bedding and bags. Shared shower/bathroom, towels are available for hire. The hotel is a good 15 minute walk from the closest train station and a good 30 minute train ride to the popular areas of Tokyo. If price is your only concern,... More

We stayed private room, 3900¥. Pretty cheap for 2people. Room was small, Japanese style. Close to subway and JR line. Supermarket is just downstairs nexr door. Staff was nice, poor english but still try to help. You get free cold/hot water from machine. Nothing bad to say.. I would stay again.

This was my second time staying at Hoteiya. Here are my pros and cons: PROS: 1. Best price I found during my visit in pricey Tokyo. 2. Reasonably clean and quiet rooms. 3. Wifi, A/C, mini fridge, TV 4. Grocery store right next door, 7 Eleven about 2 blocks away 5. Metro station less than ten minute walk 6. Restaurants... More

This hotel was easily the best value for my yen during my entire stay in Japan. I stayed here with my wife on a two-week trip to visit several cities. We stayed in this hotel for three nights. Key Points: - Rooms are tiny but quiet and comfortable. Didn't encounter a smoky smell. - All important amenities are there including... More

I stayed here with my friend last month. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. The caretaker even gave my friend a flight travel omamori when he checked out. (we checked out seperately). We stayed at the non smoking tatami room. The room for non-smoking is in different floor from the smoking ones. So I didn't have any problem like... More

I actually went to tokyo in august 2009 with my best friend. Seeing as we were/are young we were looking a steal of a bargain. Not only is this place cheap, but it is extremely clean and quiet. It is only about 5-10 min from the minami-senju station. We opted for a "japanese style" room which entails sleeping on futons... 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.
