The Hotel Park Side is a good option for the weary traveller.
Friendly and professional, the staff can help you with almost anything you need. I found their English is a little limited but is still more extensive than my Japanese, and we got assistance with everything we needed during our stay.
Having just got off a 14 hour flight and train transfer, the first thing you want is a shower, and this hotel delivers in spades. Hot, strong water in a nice deep shower room.
The hotel bar on the top floor has a wonderful view of the park and lake across the road, and some excellent whiskey`s, including one from the Mount Fuji region.
I tried to stay here again nearing the end of our trip, but they were fully booked.
The only thing to note (which they can`t do anything about short of physically moving the hotel), is that Ueno is about a 30 minute JR Yamanote line train ride away from Shibuya, Harajuku etc. Not a big deal for us, but if you were madly trying to do a few things in a short space of time on the other side of town, its worth considering whether you`d want to stay here or somewhere closer as the JR line can be busy and tiring.
The only other consideration is they don`t seem to have smoking and non-smoking floors, so some our non-smoking room had a very slight smokey smell to it initially, but soon cleared out once the aircon was on.
All in all, a good experience and a good value hotel.
