We stayed in 4 different hotels during our trip to Japan and this was our clear favourite. The place was clean, comfortable, very close to the JR station, but tiny, oh so tiny. We barely had room to unpack our luggage. On the plus side, the room was nicely furnished and clean even by Japanese standards. Would definitely stay here... More

This is a neat little bargain hotel located a few minutes from the JR and underground lines. Rooms are small, even a little tiny by Tokyo standards. Smoking rooms are infused with years of smoke and difficult to get smell out even by opening windows. Rooms have been retrofitted with full bathrooms (prefab units) but this creates the impression of... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review. We are sorry our room did not reach your expectation. We have renovated our smoking rooms this year so it smells much less than before. However, if you do not like the smell, please try our non-smoking rooms. They don't smell for sure. If you want a bigger room, please try... More

Short walk from Ueno Station! Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. They spoke some English although it is still useful to learn some Japanese language. We sent an email to request for earlier check in and the hotel was generous to allow early check in for free. Room is very clean and quite decent size.

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.
