The best point of the hotel is its location: it's near Nippori station and the neighborhood is really cute, with many little shops and delicious food stalls! We would have never discovered this neighborhood otherwise so for this point we were happy.
The hotel itself, however, is kind of depressing. It's true that it's very cheap, especially for Tokyo, but we could find other hotels with the same price and that were a lot better. This hotel and the room were old and not "fresh". Old stains were on the walls, the hallway was always pretty dark, and most of the amenities were old-fashioned. The reception is very tiny and the front desk staff is hidden behind a tinned glass, so it's really not handy and welcoming to talk with them and ask them for information.
Finally, although we specified on our online booking that we wanted a non-smoking room, we got a smoking one and we couldn't get rid of the disgusting smell. We think they don't speak English (we only spoke with...

The best thing about this hotel is that it is cheap for Tokyo and easy to get to and from. My husband and I stayed here for three nights in January 2015. I don't think that we would stay here again.

The bed was comfortable, but a small double, which is a squeeze for two people. The room smelled very smoky, and as far as we could tell, I think that there are only smoking rooms, no non-smoking rooms. To add insult to injury, we only got the window open once. After that, it jammed. We were stuck using the air conditioning all the time to get fresh air into the room, which left me quite cold.

The room said that it had a kitchenette, so we imagined that there would be some way to cook. This actually meant that it had a small fridge and a microwave. There are no cooking tools or any kind of cooker.

The receptionist didn't really speak any English at all, but that was ok as we figured out how everything worked anyway.

Access to Narita airport from this...

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.
