Very well located in Asakusa, close walk to Sensoji Temple with many restaurants nearby. Subway close by gives access to all parts of city. We had premium room on 9th floor with views of Skytree and Sensoji Temple (room 905). Room was compact, but not for Tokyo standards. Would recommend if staying in Asakusa (which I would also recommend).

This central Asakusa hotel gave us views of the Sensoji Temple and the Skytree Tower. It is well equipped and the staff were very welcoming. The breakfast included continental as well as traditional Japanese. It is a 30 minute tube trip to the centre of Tokyo. The area around the hotel is quite peaceful as this is the historic district...

We stayed in Tokyo for a total of six nights (2 nights at the start and 4 nights at the end. We chose this hotel as we wanted to be based in an older part of Tokyo for both stays. We were not disappointed with our choice, the only concern was the room was slightly cramped for two people with...

Traveling to Japan for the first time, And used to American hotels, I was always told Japanese hotel rooms were small. But I was pleasantly surprised that the room I got was a very comfortable size for one person. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the television was HUGE! The staff spoke broken english but we got...

Really distinguished by its location and we were lucky enough to have a room overlooking the Sensoji Temple and with stunning views of the colour changing Skytower. Try for such a room if you can. Very convenient for the subway and a million eateries of every kind imaginable plus endless shopping on the doorstep. The rooms are small but perfectly...

The employees at the front desk were courteous and helpful, and spoke English well. My room was typically small, but not cramped. The hotel is close to the Senso-ji temple - the area surrounding the temple was very touristy, for better or worse. The hotel is easily accessible by train. For my return trip to Tokyo station, the front desk...

We stayed here for 3 nights in October, for a brief look at Tokyo after taking the Bullet train from Nagoya following the Japanese Grand Prix. I had searched extensively on Tripadvisor prior to planning our trip, to ensure that I chose a good hotel, and as soon as we arrived at the hotel I knew we had picked the...

Very small rooms which we were told are not unusual for Japan and esp Tokyo. Quiet considering its location. Bath/shower. Good bed with hard pillows. Good location with lots of small local shops and restaurants, not many western. Breakfast is mixture of Japanese and western dishes - not fantastic but sufficient. Short walk less than 5 mins to Senso-ji temple...

Really liked this hotel, breakfast was excellent. Great location for temple, river cruise for example and Asakusa is a good base for a few days. Easy to travel around on the metro. Room was good, complimentary pyjamas and a good choice of toiletries. Above a shopping centre so a little difficult to find at first. New hotel. Fantastic views from...

Caught the Keisel Line train from Narita Airport costing 11,000 Yens ($11.00 USD) about a one hour ride to the Asakusa Station, recomending you take a Taxi to the hotel if you have luggage ($8 USD). Easy check in on the 9th floor, Queen Deluxe room was adequate with the wired and wireless internet excellent. Breakfast was good with mostly...

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.
