I stayed in here for 2 nights with my husband. The nearest station is Minami Senju, it is 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. The room is nice, small and so clean, just like the picture we saw. We stayed at the 3rd floor. Every floors have toilet, washtafel, microwave and kettle. The shower room and laundry room are at... More

I must begin the review of all budget hotels that you must set your expectations straight. In giving this review a 4 star doesn't indicate that it is a 4-star hotel, but rather the hotel exceeded my expectations and i can recommend to stay there, and i myself would consider a repeated stay should the occasion arise. Now.. here are... More

The hotel is about 5-10 min walk away from the train station. The rooms were bigger than I had originally expected. The rooms were very nice and clean and it was pretty quiet for our entire stay. The only disadvantage is that the stairway is very narrow and there isn't an elevator. There is a shared bathroom on every floor,... More

This hotel is my favourite short term stay in Tokyo. Why short term? Probably that rooms are not big enough to chill in for many days. But if you need just a bed and quite place in Tokyo it's a great option for you! Service is cool, even when you arrive a late you will get your room ;-)

เข้าพักเมื่อช่วงสงกรานต์ ปี 2558 เราเริ่มต้นจากสถานีโตเกียว แล้วนั่งรถไฟใต้ดิน Tokyo Metro Subway สายสีเทา Hibiya Line (ถ้าใครซื้อ Tokyo Metro Subway 1day 2day จะคุ้มมาก) ลงสถานี H20 Minami-Senju Station (เกือบสุดสาย) พอถึงสถานีก็จะเจอสถานีของ JR, Tokyo Metro และ Tsukuba ถ้าใครสะดวกเจ้าไหน ก็เลือกได้เลยตามสะดวก จากสถานีเดินไปโรงแรมก็ไกลพอสมควร ต้องขี้นบันได มีทางลาด แต่ก็มีลิฟต์ไว้บริการ ก่อนถึงโรงแรมจะเป็นชุมชนคนไร้บ้าน คนเหล่านี้ดูภายนอนก็น่ากลัวๆ หน่อย มอมแมม ใส่เสื้อผ้าขาดๆ แต่เค้าก็ไม่ได้มาทำอะไรเรานะ ไม่มายุ่งวุ่นวาย ไม่เดินมาใกล้ๆ โรงแรมเป็นตึกสีเทา 3 ชั้น ตกแต่งแนว loft เลย ปูนเปลือย โทนสีทึมๆ พอเข้ามา ก็จะเจอฟร้อนท์ โซน lobby จะมีกีต้าร์ หนังสือ โซฟาให้นั่ง ที่นี่จะให้เราเปลี่ยนรองเท้าก่อนขึ้นห้อง โรงแรมสะอาด...

We stayed at the Kangaroo for several nights in July 2015 and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a tatami-style room on the third floor. The hotel has great design and clean, modern facilities that are comfortable and welcoming. The room itself was very, very small - just large enough for the futon and a very small table. This...

I have never written a negative review before, but Kangaroo Hotel had some unique problems that unfortunately really affected my trip to Japan/Tokyo. I stayed at Kangaroo Hotel with my friend at the end of May 2015 for 5 nights. The room was small and the facilities were clean, just as we had expected from other online reviews. After a... More

Location: It is situated at Taito Ward with 10-15min walk to Minamisenju Station. There are a lot of option for your rail ride since Minamisenju is one of those station that has a subway, JR and an express line. I recommend search and plan before going. It is not that hard to find but on the first time visit to... More

It is a little way to Shibuya and Shinjuku but as its only 5 min walk to the metro you can get there in no time. Ok the rooms are a little small but we found this no... More

Awesome little hostel, very private and clean rooms, and you can adjust the temperature which is great in winter time, get a futon or a western bed (i lived the futon), do your laundry if you need to, only cons are it's hard to find and there's no elevator. So use google maps and see what you're looking for before... 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.
