Less than five minutes’ walk from Ueno Station, this smart new business hotel is an excellent hotel with larger-than-average rooms, great service and super-convenient access to Narita Airport.
If you want to get off the Keisei Skyliner from Narita and walk to your hotel, this place will definitely fit the bill. It’s a moderately-priced business hotel, but has style and features that you’d expect in more expensive hotels.
The first thing you’ll notice is that lobby and restaurant are smartly decorated and welcoming. The next thing you’ll notice is that your room is significantly larger than you’d expect for a business hotel. And in the bathroom, the rainforest shower will pleasantly work the travel kinks out of your neck and back. And, if you’ve got the energy, you can do a workout in the small gym (a feature unheard of in most business hotels). And, when you’re ready to sleep, you’ll notice the firm and comfortable mattresses.
