Stayed here on our last night in Japan. We chose it for the closeness to the JR line because we had a late arrival from Hakodate. Indeed, you can get here easily without taking steps but using escalators or elevators if you can find the right path via Asakusa exit. So, this is terrifically located hotel.
The size of our room, however, mirrored the Ueno area--really tight. It felt like a cabin of a sail boat and after having a large room in Hakodate, we felt really squeezed in. Also, not much in the way of amenities--have to get your coffee and tea from the lobby.
The staff was excellent and held our bags after check-out until we retrieved them in the evening before our journey home via Tokyo airport.
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.
