This was my families second trip to Tokyo and since we were travelling with kids who may have needed daytime sleeps we really wanted something bigger which is usually impossible to find in Tokyo. We wanted to be in a suburb that had enough entertainment if we were tired we didn't have to go train hopping so Ueno with it's parks, shops & zoo was perfect.
We booked the Junior Suite and it was a great size, had a seperate lounge area with a convertable sofa bed. Great to put the kids down for a nap & then hang out in the next room. The hotel itself is small but has everything you need, drink vending machines, washing machines, a complimentary breakfast (toast/pastries) and the staff are so lovely and helpfull despite the language barriers! No wifi in the rooms but they do have internet connection & free use computers in the hotel lobby.
The location is great, take the train direct from the airport to Ueno and then Ueno itself has so much to offer. Plenty of food options nearby from high class to cheap Japanese versions of fast food. Also has 3 x mini marts all within a 100mtr walk if you need to duck out.
It isn't the cheapest place out there but we have no issues paying extra for space if it means adults/kids stay rested & happy on holidays!
Other reviews have commented on the noise, I did notice it the first night a couple of times during the night but then didn't after that so I really don't think it is that bad.
