Spent 3 nights at hotel we had used on previous visits some years ago. Reserved twin room as offers more space at modest additional cost. Fairly easy to walk from Ueno JR (a major junction), 10+ minutes, shorter walk to Keisei station (not a JR station) and its fast direct services to Narita airport (Y2400pp); there are also other nearby subway lines. Reception area doesn't feel like one but more bottom of an office block. Staff fairly responsive and efficient. Luck of the draw whether you get a smoky or non smoky room, ours was smoking but no trace of smell. Our twin room was a little tired but an upgrade going on and doubles have been done (or so I understand). Nevertheless, spotlessly clean as is usual in Japan. Plenty of space for 2. Adequate bathroom with usual accessories and with plenty of hot, strong water pressure. Modest wardrobe space for 2, fridge, TV with plenty of channels but all in Japanese. View over the park (at extra cost) but ask for at least 7th floor, 5th is on line with a/c units and park's outdoor entertainment block. We had requested park view and given 5th floor but staff did work hard to change it to 7th floor. Free wi-fi only works in the lobby and was fine for my UK smart phone. At rear of hotel is a well known "entertainment" area with masses of bars/restaurants. Doesn't feel edgy although some women may possibly not feel at ease. Didn't have breakfast in ground floor Italian restaurant that hotel uses but prices seem reasonable. Expensive Chinese restaurant on top floor and overpriced bar. Would certainly use again.
