This hotel is right next to Ueno Park, which is convenient if you want to see the zoo or museums (and the park itself is nice too). Otherwise it's a 30 haul on the (nice, clean) subway/local train to Ginza or Shibuya. We initially booked a western-style room, which turned out to be a really claustrophobic cell, so we upgraded to a Japanese-style room which was easily twice the size and looked onto the nice interior garden. It also had a nice large (for Tokyo) bathroom. The hotel was quite busy, with large groups using the banquet rooms on the lower floors every evening. That said, it was very quiet at night. The restaurant with the daily breakfast was nice enough. The Japanese breakfast was typical, the coffee was quite good too. For some reason they insist on playing CDs of very annoying music-box music, both in the lobby and restaurant. The staff was very helpful and nice, which one comes to expect in Japan. They also had a free laundry machine (with detergent!) in the bowels of the building, which was a very nice convenience. No wifi though, either in the rooms or even in the lobby. Overall I'd say the hotel was...meh. But unless you are really on a budget do avoid the Western rooms.
