After safety and hygiene measures for the new normal after the COVID-19 have been evaluated, NOHGA Hotel is the first hotel in Japan to acquire the "SAFE GUARD Label" set by Bureau Veritas, one of the world's largest inspection and certification bodies. Now, what can hotels in Japan do for their guests? How can we create a space that will truly satisfy visitors? We must go beyond having guests simply "stay" and provide them with unique experiences that can only be found in this place, this neighborhood. We must create moments that will stay with travelers. With that in mind, we chose Ueno as the location. Possessing a deep curiosity about the Ueno area, we aim to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences to our guests during their stay. Furthermore, we aim to build the future of this area together with its local residents. Imagining this neighborhood and its future, we will launch NOHGA Hotel. Our rooms are ready to welcome any explorers. All rooms have refined Japanese features and also offer original items and artworks hand-crafted by our Neighbors, introducing you to the Ueno neighborhood.

Stayed here 3 nights when we arrived to Japan and it was the perfect base for us to find our feet. Just a very short walk from Ueno station, it’s located in a quieter side of the area. The room itself was really comfortable if on the smaller side, but that’s definitely to be expected of a city centre hotel. There wasn’t any coffee in the room, but that’s a small gripe when they serve coffee at breakfast anyway! Again, the gym is on the “cosy” side, but they’ve got the essentials you’ll need. Where this place comes into its own is the bistro. The food on the bistro is magnificent - the charcuterie had a Japanese flair, serving chicken gizzard, and was delicious. I also had the pork, which was also cooked to perfection. Our server was also brilliant. She spoke impeccable English and gave us all the info about the local area we could need, as well as the hotel’s printed map and guide to Ueno. All in all, it was the perfect spot to kick off our trip!

I honestly cannot fault the Nohga. The location is excellent, being a five minute walk from Ueno station, from where you can get to all of the main parts of Tokyo very easily. The hotel has a boutique feel in a relaxed neighbourhood. As for the food, all I can say is superb. Some pictures below of the meal we enjoyed in the bistro. I highly recommend the braised beef cheeks!

First time at the Nohga hotel and it's a nice modern Japanese hotel. Service is on the ball some of the staff struggles with English but you get by. Rooms are nicely appointed and roomy for Japanese standards. Breakfast is well appointed with different western and Japanese options

Stayed 3 nights in a Superior Double room, everything very thoughtfully designed. Good English spoken by reception staff. Didn’t use restaurant but the food looked wonderful! As mentioned in previous reviews, bed was incredibly hard, but nice soft pillows and after days of walking a lot, it wasn’t too hard to get to sleep! Very close (about a 5 min walk) to Ueno station. Seven11 convenience store about 1 minute walk away for snacks and ATM. Lovely quiet area, but close enough to lots of good food options. I really liked the layout of the bathroom - separate shower, toilet and sink. Can’t fault this hotel!

Overall this is a great, less expensive, boutique option in Tokyo. Everything is brand new and very practical (so many usb ports!). We were there over New Years and the only breakfast option was the (very expensive) buffet and with everything close by closed, they really didn't need to take advantage as they did (and will kick you out finished or not at 10AM). As everyone noted the beds are HARD as rocks and we love a firm mattress but wow - this was intense hard. That all said, I would stay again, especially not during a holiday as the location in great and overall lovely hotel.

The hotel has a modern stylish exterior as well as interior. I stayed in one of the "Standard Double Room". Room size was pretty good. The room came with a double bed, a small round table and an one-seater arm chair. With all the above items, there were still enough rooms to put my 29inch luggage (opened up) and comfortable space to walk. Bed was firmed and I loved it (personal preference). The design of the toilet is not the type that one will normally find in a typical japanese boutique hotel. My room (Standard Double Room) has shower stall instead of a bath tub. And the sink is separately located in the room, away from the toilet and the the shower area. Without the sink, the toilet is more spacious. But now, extra care has to be taken not to splash water on the carpeted floor when using it. That is one little inconvenience that comes with such layout. The hotel also has self-service, pay per use laundry facilities and even a gym.

Excellent location, in close proximity to the heart of Ueno and the train station. Hotel is well maintained and the use of space in the rooms means that they feel bigger than most in Tokyo. Fantastic showers!

We just had 1 night on a stopover home from a Europe trip. This place was great, the room was so well appointed. The way they make use of limited space was really clever. Great location, such easy access to Ueno station and just 5 minutes on the train to Tokyo station. We used both Narita and Haneda airports, and public transport to and from the hotel was really simple. Only one negative was the hardness of the bed. We both like a hard bed but this was even hard for us. Really would recommend this place though, it’s was a find

This is an awesome hotel. Far away from the neon and pachinko parlors - Nohga Ueno Hotel is a splendid oasis in a frenetic city. Walking distance to at least 5 major museums and many other sites. Same feel as Chelsea in NYC - quiet, with fewer skyscrapers and much more sunlight. 5 min walk to beautiful Ueno PArk and Ueno Station. Japanese Rail System makes it easy to get anywhere quickly and on time. Highly recommend getting the breakfast included package - so worth it! Set menu , 3 choices including Japanese traditional breakfast plus fresh fruits and veggies buffet all included. You’ll be happy you chose this place.

This is a great piece of boutique hotel. Often hotels try to become a boutique hotel by emphasizing in look good design and neglecting the details (like bed quality, toiletries quality, pillows quality). This is not the case for NOHGA. The hotel has managed to pull it all in the constraint of space in Tokyo properties. The hotel managed to have an aesthetically pleasing and functional design at the same time. In addition the hotel has great and comfortable bed and pillows. Location wise, Ueno is very convenient and the hotel is located within 5 mins walking distance to the metro. A great hotel overall
