My wife and I stay at APA whenever possible. As always, clean and efficient. Breakfast is fantastic, another reason why we like staying at APA. Be aware that the rooms are small. This is (metropolitan) Japan. If you need a large room, I recommend to pay the bucks and stay at KEIO Plaza or similar. Location is close to Asakusa... More

This hotel was clean, modern and the breakfast is five star. I recommend anyone to stay here but be prepared for the front desk staff to not be very helpful to foreigners - English skills are limited and they just seemed cold. The location is excellent - on the river, a scenic ten minute walk from the heart of things... More

Apa hotel is a budget hotel that you find all along Japan. the room is small everywhere and in Kurumae is not different.

Overall, I give this hotel 5/5 stars. For most people from USA, standard/deluxe single room will look too small, but you will get over it after a few hours! If you are a really big person, you might not like it at all. Bed, pillows, towels, all comfy and clean. Everyday, they provide you with hair brush, tooth brush with... More

Convenient location to Asakusa by walk, and there is an onsen bath that I really enjoyed. I stayed 3 nights to enjoy that area like good old restaurants and water bus in Cherry blossom season. The hotel is located in quiet area by Sumida river, and 5-8 minutes walk to Asakusa and subway stations.

Stayed one night with my wife and 6yo. Room was small which we knew already beforehand. We could just sleep on the same bed. We got a view to the skytree without extra cost.

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.
