With a good location in Ueno, this moderate business hotel offers small but efficient rooms and some interesting extras like in-room massage chairs and a sento (public bath).
While Ueno is not the best place to stay in Tokyo, it’s far from the worst. This hotel is within easy walking distance of JR Ueno Station, which is on the loop line, and Keisei Ueno Station, which has direct express trains to/from Narita Airport. The hotel overlooks Shinobazu Pond, which is often covered with giant water lilies. It’s also very close to Ueno Park, which is home to museums and cherry blossoms (in season).
The rooms here are small but adequate and well kitted out. Some have nice views over the pond and park. There’s a sento in addition to en suite bathrooms. There are massage chairs in each room, which is nice after a day of sightseeing. Finally, there are coin washing machines, which is convenient on long trips.
Given the relatively convenient location, the extra features and the reasonable rates, this is a good choice in the moderate bracket.
