We stayed in a Western twin room for a few nights. The room was clean but the bathroom was quite small. It was a fair walk from Ueno station, but a nice walk. Great budget hotel, and the room was a decent size. Hotel staff was friendly and nice, and the lobby "info" area provided helpful resources. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this place to other people! Wifi in our room (not in the lobby like most hotels) was awesome!!

I have been staying in Oak Hotel for one week, everything there make me satisfied. all the staff in the hotel are extremely friendly actually and I think no other hotel that that have all the staff can speaking English really good like in this hotel. The room in the hotel is clean and acceptable with the price that I paying for. It give me alot of memories while I am stayed there. I also make many friends along while I stayed. Oak hotel I give you 4.5/5

Stayed just the one night our first night in Japan. We were transiting out of Tokyo the next morning so wanted to stay near the train station we needed.

A little difficult to find based on the website directions but once you know where you're going, very easy 3-5 minute walk from the station. The staff were very friendly and spoke English very well. Room was very small but would stay there again if we needed to for longer. Convenience stores nearby and a nice little noodle place on the corner. Detailed to-do maps and itineries in the lobby that we didn't use but looked good!

Great hotel, great price. Absolutely the friendliest front staff I've ever encountered. Fluent in English, too! Very close to Ginza Line subway and Ueno station, so you can go anywhere in Tokyo with ease. Highly recommended!!!!

This is a small hotel a few meters into a alley from the main road. The staff are nice and helpful and the rooms were clean. However, the rooms are very small and there was just enough to open our carry-on bags (if you are traveling with big luggage, i would not recommend this hotel). The bathroom was tiny too and if you are fairly tall, your knees might touch the wall when you sit on the toilet. The only other hotel where I have stayed in a comparably small room was in Paris; I suppose we Americans are used to super large rooms at home. Otherwise everything was clean and functioning.

The location is good, right outside the hotel is the Inaricho station; and it is only two stops from the sensoji temple. It is a 15 minute walk or one stop from Ueno station (which is the larger station from where you can connect to anywhere in Tokyo). The hotel website will tell you to get off at Ueno and walk (but in winter if you have a metro pass, its better to take a train to Inaricho directly).

There is a convenience store and cafes very close by and vending machines in the hotel. There are lots of maps, tips, suggested itineraries and all kinds of tourist information in the lobby billboards. Overall, its a good value hotel for that price in Tokyo if you are traveling light. Personally, I would have preferred to have stay closer to Ueno to avoid the extra train change/walk in the cold every time we went out, but Oak Hotel was one of the few reasonably priced options when I went.
