Mitsui Garden Hotel Ueno
Ranked #10 of 123 Hotels / Ryokan in Taito
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Located across the street from Ueno station Asakusa exit and close to the Metro entrance, the Mitsui Garden Hotel is great for a one or two night stay. Close by and about 5 minutes walk is the excellent Ueno Park - a perfect place to have a picnic and recharge yor batteries. The hotel looks relatively new and modern although the standard rooms are quite small but well equipped. Our room was on the 12F and faced Ueno station - incredibly peaceful considering the street noise. The room lacked storage space for suitcases and clothes, we ended up 'living out of suitcases' for our stay.

You need to swipe your room key to access the hotel elevator, good security measure but not really necessary and also an aggrevation. Breakfast is served in the small attached restaurant which is long, thin and curved - not great for carrying a tray of food! Breakfast selection is very average, for the money there is a much better choice (and comfort) out on the street and in Ueno station.

If you are travelling on business or with small luggage then the Mitsui Garden Hotel is a good choice, if like us you travel with large luggage then you might be better with a larger room.

Overall a pleasant stay in a modern city hotel located in a nice area of Tokyo.

this hotel is actually a 3.6 as opposed to very good

Its in a good location for people arriving in Japan ie you can get a train straight to the station and the hotel is a close walk

Ueno is an interesting place to explore

Our first time to visit Tokyo. The room is big enough compared to other hotels in Tokyo. It comes with excellent and wonderful amenities ( robes, nice sleepwear, toiletries, etc ). The location is just perfect. Just a short walk to Ueno Station, Ameyoko Shopping District. Its a very good base to reach any place in Tokyo. We dont have any negative experience to say. The staff are wonderful. This is a very recommendable hotel. You will never wrong

Room Tip: Choose higher floors, facing Ueno Station.

It turns out that is fact many people do like a bidet ... And we are some of them!! Aside from a little toilet humor, this hotel in Japan is fantastically located if you are visiting Ueno Park and right in the heart of the hustle and bustle without the noise expected of such a well located hotel. Whilst small by western standards, the rooms are clean, functioning and well appointed. It had everything we needed and so much more.. We booked it off expedia so got a great deal, can and will recommend it, and the bidet, that was great too ;)

Hotel was in a great location which we booked because of it's proximity to JR East Ueno station and the Shinkansen. The hotel was clean with all required appliances. We stayed in a superior non-smoking double room. There are a lot of restaurants and markets nearby to the proximity to Ueno station makes it quick to get anywhere within Tokyo.

stayed in April 08 to 14 2014, nice hotel very near to JR Ueno station and metro subways
centrally located with lots of eateries nearby and 24hrs convenient stores. its convenient to travel from Ueno to Tokyo and visit places. Ueno park is just opposite the JR Ueno station which also has lots of shops and eateries in the station itself.Ameyoko is about ten minutes walk from the hotel and Asakusa Sensoji temple is just three stations away and Tokyo Skytree one more station from Asakusa.
hotel rooms are big and bed comfortable, there is also a set of amenities for ladies and for kids. room is quiet even though our room is beside the lift

would strongly recommend this hotel for families especially if travelling with kids. only setback is no room service if you are considering dining in.

There are 3 sizes of room on each floor.
Most of them are the basics 18m2, plus 1 room at 20, 1 at 22 and 1 at 25. You pay accordingly to the surface, of course. To us, the basic 18m2 is ok, the only thing is that there so many amenities, surely very important to the Japanese, but to us, westerners, we don't even understand for what purpose they are there. So we end up pushing them together to one corner, so we can enjoy more room.

We like :
- Ueno area, so convenient coming or going to Narita
- Very recent hotel, comfortable room, and larger than most business hotel room we had been to. Quiet from inside, and outside.
- Wifi, hot corner ....

We don't :
- Nothing so far

As long as we arrive from NRT, we'll stay in this area, now that the Skyliner is less than 45 minutes back to Narita. And the hotel is very neat
