I've stayed in several different hotels in Tokyo and this was one of the nicer ones due to their renovations. Electronic keys that you can take with you, modern room features, regular bathroom, etc made for a pleasant stay. Visited a friend at another popular hotel in Ueno and felt like a king in comparison to his room. There were a couple of hiccups though. Room A/C was basically a fan control so you can alter the temps. Wifi is not stable so I used the wired connection. Washing machine also doubled as a drier but the cost was too high compared to other hotels I've stayed in. One of the best features was the location which is right by the start of the Asakusa area with easy access to the Ginza train line which is one of the most useful trains in Tokyo. Two convinience stores within one minute walk as well as some nice local places to eat rounded out things nicely. Best of all, the room was $37 per night. I plan on returning here next trip to Tokyo.
