I used this hotel during an overnight transit in Tokyo, as an alternative to staying in a hotel near Narita airport. The Ueno area is very lively and is easily accessed by express train from Narita, which takes 45 minutes. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the station, once you know the way. However, even though I had lived in Tokyo for five years and speak the language, I wandered in the dark for 30 minutes trying to find it, due to an unclear map.
The hotel itself is appropriate for its budget price point. I had a small single room, which featured a comfortable bed, a desk and TV. It was spartan and a bit dated but clean. The bathroom had all the necessities and some nice amenities. It was a bit too warm with an outside temperature of 19 degrees. The AC was ineffective, but the room had a window which could be opened which helped somewhat.
Buffet breakfast was included, though I wasn't given a voucher for it at check-in which caused much confusion when I was being seated at the restaurant the next morning. Be sure to ask for it. The breakfast was very nice otherwise. Like most Japanese, the staff at the hotel were unfailingly courteous and helpful.
I would definitely use the hotel again either for transit or even for a short budget stay.

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.
