Hotel is around 10mins away from Ueno station where you can get all your food. There's also a convenient store nearby.
The room is small (typical of most hotel in Japan) but comfortable and clean. The hotel faces a small street, so there's no noisy traffic even though I was at a room on the 3rd level and faces the road. Breakfast is served at the small cafeteria at lobby, though I did not utilise it as I was usually out and about before breakfast timing.
Hotel staff speaks fluent English so language is not an issue. They also offer you bottled drinks in return when you don't require housekeeping.
Ueno Station is one of the station where you can collect your Japan rail pass, so if the airport queue for Japan rail pass is too long (which it usually is, and queue is at least an hour long), you can consider collecting at Ueno station where the queue is much shorter.More
