Perfect location, great value (140 US$), occupancy 90% Japanese, 9% Korean (most speak Japanese), 1% other foreigners so little need to speak English or provide the typical foreign traveler advice. 5 days a week there is one woman at the front desk who speaks good English, can answer questions, is friendly and helpful: Ishizawa. Terrific, she saved our 4 days there.
Special deluxe top 8th floor room, tiny twin, tiny bath, couldn't go to the window (blocked by bed, chair and tiny closet) but had great view of Ueno park and pond from the middle of the room, no storage drawers, couldn't unpack. Bed and bathroom updating was good. Air conditioner worked first 2 nights, 3rd day, housekeeping turned it off but we did get it going again. Last day and night housekeeping turned it up to 26 C and we couldn't read the Japanese control info, were undressed so didn't call the reception, hot, hot. TV had only Japanese stations, no guest computer. Must be a better foreign oriented but also reasonably priced hotel in Tokyo but, knowing the lack of English and room storage, guests would appreciate the Skyliner service direct to hotel area, Ueno, gorgeous adjacent park and pond for early morning walk, several of the best Tokyo museums, and close by one of the best French restaurants ever, Grill Fukushima, also in Ueno Park. Don't bother with the far away top rated (also French) Park Hyatt New York Grill, mediocre food and house wine, prices 50% higher than other top restaurants - the great 52nd floor view can be obtained from the adjacent New York bar. I shouldn't forget the marvelous hotel Parktop Lounge, view, ambience, excellent 10$US house wine from Chili, and access to items from the Chinese and Italian hotel restaurants to also dine in this pleasant lounge.
