Location: The Richmond Hotel premier international is located a short 15 minute walk from Asakusa station. If you are coming from Narita airport you catch the train to Ueno station and then change to the Asakusa line there, don’t worry about this, this was our first visit to Japan, simply walk to the train ticket desk and ask for a...

Nice comfortable hotel. We stayed here for a night on transit to Sapporo. Near a large shopping centre and grocery store. Very convenient. Nice staff. Hotel room was also very comfortable and walking distance to some eateries.

First of all, the staffs are very helpful andI got an early check-in. They also have vending machines and coin-laundry machines inside the hotel. Only stayed for a night but was quite pleased with the hotel. Now for the only bad point.. but please note that this might only happens to me. I liked to stay barefeet when inside my...

Asakusa must be the best area of Tokyo to stay in terms of its local feel. Shops, restaurants and bars all with a very local feel to it. The hotel is 5 minutes or less of a walk to the amazing Sensoji Shrine (go at night when it is lit up and less crowded). There are shops to buy food...

Very well located in Asakusa centre and walking distance for major attractions. 10 minutes from Asakusa station. The staff are extremely kind and always trying to help in any way. The rooms are small but anyway bigger than standard Japanese rooms. All amenities in room and very comfortable decoration. You have to pay the breakfast at the small restaurant at...

From check in to check out everything went very well. We got a little welcome present from the staff which was very nice. Room are spacious, calm. The area has everything to please any tourists and locals. The breakfast room is small and crowded but it was OK. Breakfast is short on fresh fruits and more Asian orientated

We stayed two nights and were very pleased. The western style room we were in wasn't huge, though big enough, very clean, modern and quiet. Loved the in-house information on the TV that allows you to check the washing machine & dryer with the TV remote control. The location is ideal for shopping, sight seeing, restaurants, getting to/from airport or...

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...

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.
