Easy to find after 19 hours on plane from New Zealand .. quick walk from station. Room overlooked lovely park. Teeny tiny room but had everything we needed for 3 night stay. Staff lovely. Breakfast great. Quiet, even with our window open. Only fault was wi-fi in room are bit sporadic and lift during peak times too busy. They need to open stairwell to relieve peessure on lift (or service lift) . For the price .. awesome.
It is not really close to station, a bit croudy place. Combini in 2 min walk. Very small room, a bit old and dirty cause of time. Comfortable bed. Beautifull hall. There are not boiler and cups in room, they had they and microwave in hall zone. I like it, very cheap and comfortable.
The hotel is a basic, no frills place. We got a first floor room with 2 double beds. There's a mini fridge (nothing inside, it's just a convenience for you), a hot water pot for tea (coffee is offered in the mornings at the lobby), and hotel kimonos with slippers for each patron. I didn't notice street noise, but then the road outside the window wasn't really built for cars. The beds were firm, but comfortable. For those that like pillow tops or memory foam, it may be considered really hard. They offered flatter or puffy pillows, just ask.
The bathroom is RV compact, but cute. The bathtub was deep, made for soaking while sitting. When you showered, the length of the tub was about as WIDE as my tub at home, so it was pretty tiny. The shower head wasn't adjustable and felt like needles in spots. Hot water was pretty immediate and HOT. Non-disposable shampoo, conditioner, and bath wash liquid was offered, as was disposable toothbrush/toothpaste and razors.
The nice staff also spoke some English.
The location is a 5 min walk to Ueno Station, which means that it's also a 5 min walk to: Ueno Park, Ameyoko Shopping Street, and the shopping markets of Ueno. Because of the Panda Bridge, which is just for pedestrians and goes over a huge traffic area, you didn't have to worry about cars or even a crosswalk. There were at least 5 restaurants in our walking path between the hotel and the station. AND there's also a 24 hr convenience store within 3 minutes of the hotel.
Micro double rooms were small for two people but the location is premium for the price and the staff was helpful. It is two blocks from Inaricho subway station and four blocks from Ueno which is probably the best place to stay in Tokyo because of the parks museums and shopping.

This hotel is in a highly accessible, quiet location only 5 minutes walk from Ueno Station with plenty of convenience stores and food outlets nearby. Also very close to subway station. However, while the room is quite comfortable and a good size for Tokyo, the hotel needs renovation. Carpets in hallways were stained and there is no regular room service.
This area offers a glimpse of what life was like before the economic boom of the 1970s and 1980s. Neighboring Asakusa, it is best known for the Ameya-yokocho Arcade, a busy market with interesting stalls. Ueno-koen, a sprawling park with monuments, zoo, pagodas, and a pond, is a must-do. Museums and galleries abound in the area.
