Ueno is often overlooked because of Shinjuku/Shibuya/Harajuku and other more famous places. Don't sleep! This is a great area to be based for any tourists. The station area is just full of shopping if that is your thing. The station itself is full of eateries...More

One of the most visited places of foreigners visiting japan. So crowded sometimes it’s just hard to go around and see what they offer but the shops have its perks. Especially if the staff like you.

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.
