A cheap last minute place to stay. Disappointed but at least I got some sleep.... Cool stuff: 1. The last minute price the morning of was ¥8,500. If you're a little claustrophobic(hate closed/tight spaces) this was a better option than a capsule. 2. Tokyo Skytree view. 3. Lots of interesting shrines/temples near by. 4. Metro access within 10 minutes. 5.... More

Even though rooms and bathrooms are tiny, hotel is clean and staff is very friendly. There's Lawson cstore across the road which is very convenient for breakfasts. Sensjo-ji temple and Tokyo Sky Tree are within the walking distance. The biggest drawback of the hotel is it's distance from the metro and jr line. But if you are on holiday you... More

This was our first hotel when we touched down to Tokyo. After a close call of catching the last train into the city we found ourselves lost trying to navigate through town since the hotel was quite a walk from the Asakusa Metro stop. I was jetlagged and depressed at this point because we did not have GPS working on... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice. Both times the stay was exactly what we expected. The rooms are on the small size, but no smaller than the average Japanese hotel room. They offer a breakfast, but if you're not accustomed to traditional Japanese breakfast, I'd skip it and go to the Lawson's across the street. It is a... More

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.

“Just be aware that there really isn't much space in the rooms for more than one huge suitcase. My carry-on sized suitcase seemed to be fine. Also, figure out which exit to come out from so you don't end up lost like I did.”
