I've stayed in quite a few hotels in Japan through the years, and I have to say that the Richmond Hotel is among the best. The first thing I encountered were the front desk staff who were all unfailingly polite and fluent in English. Next was the generous size of the room. Compared to the many tiny rooms around Japan,...

I loved this hotel. This was the first of three hotels my husband and I stayed in during our trip to Japan in November 2016. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room -- yes, very small for western standards but still slightly larger than what I was expecting. The room was immaculate, the shower was great... and...

We started our trip to Japan by staying three nights at this hotel, and it was fantastic. We took the train from Narita airport to Ueno station, then a short taxi ride to the hotel. Checkin went smoothly and the front desk had ready the pocket wi-fi devices and sumo wrestling tickets we had had sent to the hotel ahead...

Great location, close to all the shops and the Temple. Easy to Find and you go up from the shops below to 2 floor to reception then we went up in another lift to the 10th floor. Modern hotel with everything you`d expect. Lovely bathroom, no wardrobe but you`re be lucky to find one in Japan.

In the heart of Asakusa, a cultural precinct of Tokyo, this hotel is in a perfect location. Not too busy, minutes from train stations and a labyrinth of different restaurants, shops and markets surrounding it- you could spend a day walking around and exploring Asakusa alone. Hotel was well-priced, had immaculate cleanliness and excellent service. Will be staying there again-...

We loved staying here. The rooms were a good size for Japan (ie, similar to a good-sized room in NYC), the lobby staff were super friendly and spoke English enough that it didn't pose any problems for us, the rooms were clean and SUPER quiet, and best of us, the location was great -- I'm not sure I'd want to...

Excellent location. Close to railway stations, in the thick of the action, sights. Very comfortable rooms, friendly informative staff and the breakfast buffet was very good indeed. Although when the designated time for breakfast to end arrives - there is no place for stragglers !!. Recommended..

Staying in Richmond hotel had many benefits, the hotel facilities are really nice, rooms clean, bathrooms well equipped. The breakfast was the best thing.

It is located at the older part of Tokyo. 10 minutes walk from subway and 5 minutes walk to one of the must see local attractions. Classified as a business hotel, so don't try to compare it to the international name brands. But it beats some hands down in terms of cleanliness and amenities. TV channels are limited and I...

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.
