Very cozy and comfortable place. Strange pillows but i loved those. Small rooms but clean. Very nice staff. Great small terrace suitable for smokers :) location is not the best but the metro station is near.

When we arrived at the hotel we got a lovely welcome and was ready for a nice stay. The room was clean and nice looking (room for two). But when we got to sleeping we realised what was ahead... No sleep, only pain. It may look like a bed but it feels like the floor. In the morning our bodies... More

Very impression this hotel when arrived at Tokyo. I booked private single room on 8th Floor so this is only women. The room is small but enough for 1 person,. toilet and bathroom are very clean. The hotel nears UENO where you can shopping around there. If I go to Tokyo next time. I will stay here again.

Room is a bit smallish, but that is normal for Tokyo. Bathroom facilities on each floor are large enough, but there is only one women toilet per floor. Plenty for men. Although it is a hostel, it is not necessarily only for young people, families with small children can also be accommodated. Just really watch out for stairs on bunk... More

Our family of 4 stayed in a dormitory type room. It had 2 comfortable bunk beds, a little ref and a TV which we never even used. We each had a small closet which could fit our cabin-sized luggage. Since the bed is long, I told everyone to prepare the clothes and toiletries needed for the duration of our stay... More

This is not a typical japanese guest-house but more like hostel. Single, double or dormitory rooms are available. Western-style beds are provided instead of Japanese futon tatami. Room has AC, mini-fridge and TV. Bath towels, face towel and toothbrush provided. There is also a mini closet to hang clothes but perhaps they should provide a railing to hang wet towels.... More

It is truly a hotel, elevator, cupboard to store your clothes, TV, towels, brush. On the other hand you share bathroom, toilet. There is also common area with free tea, coffee, and sugar.

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.
