Located just opposite Ueno station. Ueno station has the JR Yamanote Line & a few other JR Lines. The Tokyo Metro Hibiya & Ginza Lines also stop at this station. To reach the hotel from the station, use either the Asakusa Exit @ Central Gate or Panda Bridge Exit @ Iriya Gate. For those with luggage, there is an elevator that operates from 7am – 10pm at the bridge. Keisei Ueno station is also within 500m of the hotel.

Ueno Park and the Ameyoko Market are only about 500m from the hotel. Around the hotels are many eateries, one of which, Yoshinoya is open 24 hours. There is also a convenience store nearby.

Stayed in a non-smoking moderate double room. The room size is minimally adequate. Room is clean and furnishing is still new. Room sound proofing is good but rooms facing the expressway maybe a little noisy due to traffic. As other guests have mentioned, room amenities are excellent. The room we stayed in does not have cigarette smoke odour at all unlike some hotels in Japan where even in non-smoking room, there is cigarette smoke odour. Bed is comfy and we had good night sleep.

There is only one English channel on TV which is the BBC World News.

Front office staffs were able to understand English. Check-in and check-out was quite easy and fast. We left our luggage at the hotel when we went to Nagoya for 4 days and there was no charge for it.

There is an Italian Restaurant at the hotel that provides buffet breakfast for ¥1,300 but we didn’t try the breakfast. The restaurant is well patronized during meal time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the expressway

We stayed at this hotel for only a couple nights before we came home, we absolutely loved this hotel ! We wish we stayed longer, much longer, and we DEFINITELY will stay here next time we come back to Tokyo. ( we must make sure we'll stay longer )
This hotel open only last year, so every part of the hotel is almost bland new. Very fresh feeling and always spotless.
The room is not huge, but much bigger for Tokyo hotel standard. We had a room which has king size bed ( 160cm wide ), actually it worth pay extra for that. The bad was SO comfortable and we had very good night sleep.
Room decor was simple but very modern and tastefull.
Bath room was quite spacious and always sparkling clean.
However, I must mention about amenities. They provide face steamer ,hair straightner, air cleaner, room steamer for no extra cost. That's absolutely fantastic! !
Specially we loved the face steamer. You have spa in your room !
Also they really care about enviroment. In fact, they're already well known as " eco hotel ".
We had such a fantastic stay at Mitsui Garden Hotel Ueno.
Everyone who work there are amazing. Very very friendly and incredibly helpfull.
They don't have business center, but you can hire laptop for only 1000yen for a whole day which is much cheaper than internet cafe / kinko's.
The hotel is situated right next to Tokyo Metro Ueno station ( Hibiya-line ), 5 minutes away from JR Ueno station, 7 minutes to Sky liner for Narita airport.
Ueno is one of the most lively place in Tokyo. You'll have amazing bargain in Ameyoko, There are thousand of rrestaurants, cafe, take away, bar etc. If you fancy posh shopping, you can do it, too.
You can go to Ginza, Shibuya, Harajuku by tube very easily. Asakusa is only 2 stops away.
Highly recommended to everyone who goes to Tokyo.
I bet you'll love this hotel and have a lovely stay as much as we did !

Stayed here before and I actually like the location even though it is not in Tokyo per se. It is a five to eight minute walk from Ueno Station (use the Asakusa exit and use the overhead pathways in the direction of the SkyTree), is close to Ameyoko (which is definitely worth a visit), and within a short walk of Ueno Par and Ueno Zoo (and the new pandas). Having only opened last year, the rooms are spacious (for a Japanese hotel), modern with good bathrooms. The metro is right next to the hotel so accessibility around Tokyo is not really an issue. Staff were generall helpful. Would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Book online !

I have been to Tokyo a number of times, but this is the first time I stayed at this brand new hotel in Ueno. Reasonable price, excellent location - one minute to subway, excellent services, large room size in Tokyo standard, good sound proof. Not hesitate to stay again when revisit in the future.

The location of the hotel was excellent! Near Ueno station(s) - the JR line, the subway. Easy to get to/from Haneda, and even easier to get to/from Narita. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Ameyoko shopping district is just 5 minutes walk. Ueno train station (JR line and Subway line) are right there.

It is a tad far from Shibuya, Shinkjuku etc, but Ueno park nearby offers great day out - nearby are also Ueno Zoo, Tokyo Museum, Tokyo Art Museum, Western Art Museum.
Hotel is located in a quiet area, away from the hustle and bustle of a city center but offers same conveniences as a city center.

Considering it just opened in October 2010 (stayed in March 2011), we got what we expected. Clean room, clean design with nice details. Housekeeping staff was courteous.

However, staff at counter were way too strict with check in and check out. We arrived at 0600hrs, and requested for an earlier check in - at about 1300hrs, but was request was turned down, without a smile. On day of departure we requested for 1200hrs check out, without a smile the request was turned down and said there will be a charge. Service was not impeccable. As a matter of fact, it can be improved.
