This simple business hotel in Ueno is one of the cheapest decent hotels in Tokyo. It’s pretty close to the stations and the sights of Ueno.
If you really want to save some money and are just looking for a place to lay your head in the evenings, this newly renovated business hotel is a good choice. It’s a short walk south of JR Ueno and Keisei Ueno Stations, and very close to Ameya Yokocho Arcade.
Rooms are small but reasonably comfortable. There’s a restaurant where you can eat the breakfast that comes with your room rate. The staff tries hard to please. Everything is spiffy and new.
Due to the low prices, this hotel attracts bus groups and other budget tourists. Soundproofing could be better, so you may hear guests next door or in the hallway.
The main selling point here is the price: It’s among the cheapest decent hotels in Tokyo. So, if you don’t mind staying in Ueno and only want a place to sleep for a couple of nights, this is a good bet.
