I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of my stay in Japan and then 1 night at the end. Although it is situated in a good position, the hotel itself was very basic. I stayed in a twin room and found it to be very small, no room at all to move around. The public area was also...

We got upgraded to a larger room for free which was nice. However, we had requested a non-smoking room and it smelt like smoke. We rang reception to change (even to a smaller room) but they insisted it was a non smoking room but also had no other available rooms. We asked them to change the pillows and blankets. We...

Stayed here 3 nights at the beginning of our Japan trip. Right next to a huge temple, close to shops and restaurants. Good clean rooms. Buffet breakfast is available as is a coin operated guest laundry. A 5 minute walk to trains taking Ginza line into the central city. Would stay again any time.

Great location, situated right next to Senso-ji Temple and just a 5 minute walk from Asakusa station. The room was very clean and confortable and the staff were very helpful and professional. I really recommend this hotel, such great value for money.

This was my second time visiting this hotel. The 1st time I visited it was 9 years back when it's named Blue Wave Asakusa. It's very convenient regardless if you are coming from Haneda or Narita airport. There's lift to access to the subway if you've luggages. JR Ginza & Toei Subway are just 10 mins walk away. At night,...

Amazing location - really close to subway station and to Sensoji Temple. Good if all you're looking for is to sleep in Tokyo for a couple of days, possibly not the best if you're looking for a longer stay.

The location of the hotel came as a plus point, it was a few minutes walk from Asakusa train station. It is also close to tourist attractions Sensoji Temple, and many food or snack outlets which is recommended online for tourist. The room was a little small as we have difficulties moving our luggage around in the room. The hotel...

The staff were really kind and helpful, going so far as to give us the location of a chemist for insect bite cream! Our view was okay; we were high enough to see some skyline. I don't know if there is a side overlooking Asukusa temple, but that may be worth an ask as the temple was just behind. Breakfast...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and it was so nice! The location is great and just 2 minutes walk away from Senso-ji Temple. You can easily access the Train Station if you're heading to another part of Tokyo. The staff are really friendly as well. Highly recommend!

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.
