A friend in Canada highly recommended the Edo Sakurs and we were not disappointed. My husband and I stayed 5 nights and would love to have stayed longer. Though the hotel is a bit north of the center, it has easy access to both the Ueno and Nippori train stations as well as the Hibya subway line.
The neighbourhood is quiet, low key and safe. There are restaurants to choose from nearby and a wonderful izakaya just at the end of the block and around the corner - a must try, but go early and be forewarned that smoking is allowed in the restaurant ( not unusual for Japan, sadly).
We cannot say enough about the staff in this hotel. They could not have done more to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. They were helpful in the extreme and always with a big smile. We chose a western room and found it to be spacious with comfortable beds.
Coming home to the Edo Sakura after a long day of sightseeing was like re-entering an oasis.
We cannot recommend the hotel and the staff highly enough. Do not hesitate to book! I guess my only caution is that you need to remember this is a ryokan, so small inn, and will not have the flash of the big hotels, but that was to our liking!More
