The single room had a 1.5 person bed. The private bathroom and the room were very well equipped, there was a small bath tub; a trouser press, a kettle with welcome mate, well working wi-fi, even an alarm, etc. Not suitable for romantic charming holidays, the window was facing a wall and the common areas are essentials. Walking distance to...

The hotel location is convenient - around 5 mins walk from 2 subway stations. Walk-able distance to Ueno Park, Ameyoko and Akihabara. Room is small, just like standard Japanese hotels, but it's okay if you have a budget on hotel stays. The bathroom is clean and refurnished. I do enjoy to stay here.

Ueno First City offers basic accommodation at a 2 1/2 star (US equivalent) level. The front desk is staffed 24 hours per day. Using a translator app in your smart phone largely overcomes basic communication problems. Location. The hotel is well-located, with handy access to at least four subway/train systems. It also is near the Ueno park, which contains a...

The location is outstanding. The price is good. The hotel is close to multiple subway lines, JR lines and the Airport Express Keisei Skyliner. We could also walk to all sights in Ueno and to Akihabara. Staff are nice and efficient. They offer guests to choose a toiletry / beauty product upon registration which is a nice touch! The room...

Located 10 min from Keisei Ueno station, within 5 min of 4 subway stations on different subway lines this hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the city -- nothing is more than 30 min away. Twin room was small but comfortable, all expected amenities (air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, coffee maker, fridge, etc.) in place. Squeaky clean and functional. Luxury hotel...

We stayed here for six nights and the staffs were very accommodating and friendly, although the room might be smaller compared to other hotels, their room size is already enough for two people, it's spacious enough for four luggage, two big luggage and two smaller, hand carry size luggage. It is also very near a lot of tourist spots, just...

Me & my friends stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is in good location, walking distance from Okachimachi or Ueno station. Small room but this is quite normal in Japan. Clean bedroom. From what I remember the service at the hotel was good. This hotel is good for a few nights or if you're on a budget.

My friend and I chose this hotel because it was nearer to access to Tokyo Dome for our Big Bang concert and the prices get steeper with closer proximity. It was lesser than SGD 100 per night since we shared one bed which can be shared with 2 people and it seems really small. The room was also very small...

The hotel location is great with Ueno Park nearby and with some great bargain shopping nearby. JR station, Okachimachi about 10 mins walk away and Metro station, Yushima, a 5 mins walk.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
