This is a very popular shopping place. There are lots of foreigners trying to sell you kebabs, and sea food eateries selling fresh oysters and boiled crabs with beer. At this point, the alley gets extremely crowded and you may lose members of your party...More

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

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

I can't wait to go back and spend at leaste 24 hours walking around JUST Ueno. Shopping, eating... this busy place brings the feeling of really being on the Oriental side of things.

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.
