Great part of Tokyo - easy to navigate and full of character, plus an easy walk to Akihabara. Lots of great places to eat, to see and things to do.

Enough for a whole day. In the day, you can visit the museums and zoo, sit in the park; at night, walk around the streets of restaurants and souvenir shops. Do check out the prices before buying, as some shops may be selling the same...More

My friend and I stopped here on the way back from the Tokyo fish markets and were surprised to find such a vibrant place. We had lunch in a bustling colourful area just across from the main train station and were able to sit outside...More

First time in Tokyo? Choose Ueno for your stay! Hotels are relatively cheap,ameyoko market is nice, plenty of good and affordable restaurants, and of course the National Museum is near. Reaching Ueno with JR pass is easy

We didn't even feel all that safe. Shopping streets have low quality items and the prices are higher than even the actual stores by Shibuya Station. Even the 7 stories toy store Yamashiora was exceedingly crowded, tiny floors, decent selection of toys, but again overpriced....More

A place where you can find good food, reasonable and unique souvenir. To the military buff, I would suggest finding a shop name Nakata Shoten where you can get a very good military equipment like medical or combat beg, trench coat, quick dry military style...More

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

I cannot do much to help since I haven't been to either of them, but my advice is to go to the one that works better for you. Ueno Hotel: a little farther from the station, but cheeper. Average rating in 3.8 APA Hotel... More

I believe that every hotel has a common or lounge area but not so big room only a place size 4-6sq.m. But I don't know the hotel name.
