I was travelling alone hence location was really important to me for my last few days in Tokyo and this hotel was indeed located at a really convenient location (recommended by my cousin whom stay at the same hotel previously).
Hotel Location - Hotel is located about 7 mins walk away from Keisei Ueno Station and 4 mins walk away from the JR Station. All via the huge overhead pass that links you to all four direction via Ueno Station (including the way to Touganeya Ueno Hotel). You may want to add in another 3-4mins should you have a heavy luggage with you as you carry your luggage up all those stairs everywhere from stations to overhead pass. Overall, this hotel is located at a really convenient area.
Customer Service – I was greeted by a young friendly female staff at the reception upon my arrival and I was really thankful to be given an early check-in as I arrived 30 mins earlier than usual checked-in hour (as I had a tiring trip travelling around Japan prior to my arrival at Touganey Ueno Hotel) and I was allowed to deposit my luggage few days in advance hence I really appreciate the kind gesture from the hotel.
The young female staff was also able to converse in basic English so I was really thankful for that as my Japanese language skill was of extreme minimal. Other days I was greeted by other staff that seems to speak only Japanese but I was alright since I had done my research on the area prior to my trip.
Hotel Facilities – Toilet was of adequate size based on Japanese standard. I had the bunk bed room (which; if I'm not wrong are the newly available room type) and I totally enjoyed the walking space in my room. The walking space between the bunk bed & the TV area was sufficient enough to have 3 open-up luggages so I felt really comfortable staying in my room with a small window view of the outside buildings. The tiny high-up window could be open up should you like to enjoy light breeze & fresh air instead of aircondition too.
Free internet & PC is available at the hotel lobby should you need to check email or flight check-in etc. (Take note that you would need to toggle between language choice as the person using the PC previously might have used another language)
Room Cleaning – Certain room promotion does not include room cleaning but clean towels will still be provided on daily basis.
Basic amenities & toiletries were being provided (towel/shampoo/shower gel/hanger) so if you ain't asking much, everything in this hotel will suffice your basic amenities needs.
Self-Coin Laundry – The Hotel has self-coin laundry & dryer available at 2 different levels (as indicated on their hotel information booklet in case if you need to do your laundry. A vending machine selling beverages is available at the laundry room too. (don't forget to bring your own washing power etc)
Location in Ueno – There is a Lawson convenience store located just at the right-turn corner at the hotel entrance. At the overhead pass of the Ueno cross junction, there is also another convenience store at the JR Station exit towards Touganeya direction too. And various Bento & pastry/cake available inside the JR station transit area before tapping your card out towards Iriya Exit.
Overall, shopping malls & eateries are everywhere at your convenience via the overhead pass so have fun exploring & enjoy your stay if you are there too! :)
