We had 3 nights at the hotel, which is 8-10minuti from Ueno Station. Our room was very small, but it was comfortable. The staff helped us to send a suitcase to next hotel from the our trip.
I recommend the area to stay because it is very convenient to connect with JR trains for Nikko, Kanazawa and anywhere in Tokyo. It is very quiet and there are many restaurants. I recommend street with restaurants to subway station Ueno - Ameyoko.

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel 〈Ueno-Ekimae〉.
We are glad to hear that you could stay comfortable.
Our hotel is 4 minutes away from Iriya exit of JR Ueno station and 12 minutes away from Keisei Ueno station. As you said, it's very convenient to access anywhere in Tokyo and the airports as well.
And we are always trying to make you feel comfortable. In order to do so, we try to make the room clean and try to give you a great hospitality.
We are looking forward to seeing you again.

Best regards,

APA Hotels are always a good and cheap choice in Japan. APA Ueno is located in a 10 minutes walk from the Ueno Subway Station. The Ueno station is at the same time the north gate for Tokyo. Rooms are like always in Japan, very very small. I had an Room inside with a small window to the floor. The worst thing was the pillow, which is really hard. All other amenities are clean and okay for a short trip. Would not recommend for a long term trip. This APA Hotel has NO PUBLIC BATHROOM

Room tip: Try to get a room with a window to the street or to the backside.

Pros:

Very clean, slick and efficient. Close proximity to Ueno JR station. Rather far from the Kesei Narita Airport line tough. Huge Tv with 1 english channel. AC was working perfectly well. Drinks and ice are on the lobby floor

Cons:

Not to be confused with APA Hotel Kesei Ueno Ekimae which is confusing for tourists. Bed was average comfort and pillows were somewhat awkward.

However, I would recommend to stay at this hotel if in Ueno.

Room was small but normal by Japanese standards. Clean and nice hotel. Very close to UNEO station where you can go to the zoo, see the park and go to the flea market type shops (This is located at the UNEO exit closest to the hard rock.

This is also a good location to travel to Disney since it is an easy trip. Many food places near or eat at the food places at the metro. This is about a 5 minute walk from UNEO station.

This hotel was a Tokyo styled accommodation. The entry hall and lobby were beautiful and luxury with new decoration. The room was sustainable sized and equipped with new electronic devices: A very large flat screen TV, a modern electric kettle, electronic toilet, and so on. Furniture and decoration were very recent and clean.
The bathroom was especially designed to match all functions in one small area. Functions of the bathroom fixtures were smart and easy to understand.
The hall way was designed to be like courtyard with opening. The openings brought sky light to the hall way. Natural light created a friendly atmosphere when entered or exited the guest room.
The dining room was stylish decorated to be western. The decorative elements helped create beautiful mood and tone to the place. The hotel served Japanese and international mixed breakfast. The dining room's staff worked diligently and kindly. The hotel's Japanese styled breakfast was fresh, tasty, and healthy.
Behind the hotel, there was an alley. The alley's look was easy with Japanese slow-life feeling. The hotel was close to the Ueno train station in a walkable distance. Along the way from the hotel to the train station there were convenience stores, local restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel was not too far to the Tokyo Sky Tree and the Asakusa Shrine. The sidewalk in front of the hotel was clean and beautifully decorated with planters. In the planters there were herbs and flower plants. In late April when the weather was temperate, the planters were full with Cyclamens and Rhododendrons.

Room tip: Select the hotel's room at front so you can see street view. Select the hotel's room at rear to take neighborhood alley view.

Dear Our valued customer,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay at our hotel. Your feed back is extremely valuable to us. As you mentioned, our hotel has the theme of luxury. We chose to use gold, orange and black color on the interior of the lobby to enhance the luxurious atmosphere.
Also every room is equipped with the latest electronics such as 50 in TV, toilet with bidet function, auto-lock door and so on. Our room is not just focused on only functionality, we also put a lot of weight on being "environmental friendly".
Each room has an egg shaped bath tab to avoid wasting water and is very energy efficient. Also we have very unique cleaning service called APA eco action service.
We are very glad that you liked the atmosphere of our restaurant and our breakfast. Our restaurant serves Japanese and Western style buffet breakfast. Our restaurant has the theme of ocean and sea coast, therefore we always serve very fresh fish based food every morning.
It would be such a pleasure to welcome you to our hotel again.

Thank you again for your wonderful and thoughtful review.

With much appreciation.

Shimada/ Receptionist
