This family run hotel is delightful. Kyoko speaks several languages including English and French. The rooms are not large, but this is meant to be a businessman's hotel. I stayed 10 nights and there is no closet but you do have hangers for your close. the Bathroom suite is compact but functional. The tall tub will accommodate a good soak for the average woman. Plenty of plugs for all your electricals. With the Ueno station so close there are numerous choices for food. I have stayed here several times and it will be my go to hotel when I need to be in Tokyo

Hotel new Tohoku is located close to Ueno station but a bit difficult to find. Study the maps carefully! When found the hotel is a conveniently located base to explore Ueno area. The family running the hotel are very friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome. However the hotel shows considerable tear and wear, the rooms are very small and not particularly clean.

If you go in Tokyo and you want to stay on a small, but friendly and quite hote, do not miss this hotel! Hotel is very close to Ueno station, so it's perfect for reaching subway, JR station, skyline to Narita airport and so on.
Owner and personnel of hotel are so warm and so kind that they make you feel like at home. They give you also a lot of information about the city and they speak english (not so common on japanese hotels..) Hotel is quite small, but very clean (as all japanese hotels) and very nice. You can have also bike for free, wireless connection, coffee in the morning.
Laundry is also avaible and japanese breakfast if you want (very cheap too).
I really suggest this hotel to everybody want to go in town

1- Very suitable Hotel especially in the cherry blossoms seasons in Ueno .
Walking distance to Ueno Station & Kensei Ueno-Narita Airport EkspressTrain.
At the back of the station is infamous Ueno Park .

2- Worth the price . I stayed in a room with personal toilet & bath tub.

3- Owner really helpful and friendly. Good english

4- Subway maps , maps for interesting place/area is also provided by the owner.

5- Savory Japanese breakfast at the price of 850 yen .

6- I celebrate my wife birthday in the hotel along with the owner and their employees because I had a lot of fun and good memories there.

7- For Muslim, the owner gave a place for us to pray even though we already check out.

The hotel room had bad smell which make us uncortable.The staff provide very bad service.When we request utensil,the staff gives us hard feeling.They are still using the traditional room key which need to hand it to the front desk when you go out.The check out time is too early for travellers with leisure purpose.I will never visit it again,I promise.

This is not your posh hotel, but it's awesome for those on a budget and who wants easy way going to the airport.
Upon reservation, my sister requested to be on the first floor because there's no lift in it. Room size was adequate for two people and three medium luggages so packing up wasn't a problem. The room has a double size bed and a small fridge. The bathroom was clean, and the hotel provided towels, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, body wash, and room slippers. Overall, it's a functional and clean room. It's a dated building and has no views so if you are looking for views, look for posh hotels in Umeda.

The hotel is 400-500m away from Ueno Station and 600m from Skyliner Ueno Station. We chose this hotel because Skyliner goes to Narita airport, and it was an ease to be near it when you have lots of luggages and hand carry. You don't need to transfer stations.
It's one express to Narita airport.

Moreover, there is a nearby Lawson and 7/11 stores for immediate needs. Ueno Station has Hibiya, Ginza, and JR lines so less transfer when you go to key destinations such as Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Akihabara, and Asakusa.
The hotel is also near Ameyoko (food and goods) market and near Yamashiroya (toy shop). Menya musashi is also near Yamashiroya (must try tsukemen).

Your friend in Japan will be Google maps. It will tell and give you options on what train and what platform to board, and GPS shows you if you are on the right path when walking. However, sometimes JR lines may be confusing because of the clockwise and counterclockwise direction. Just refresh your maps on your current location so it will be updated to real-time. If unsure, hey, just ask the Japanese people, they are well-mannered, and they will surely help you.

I stayed with my husband for one day at this hotel. Rooms are small. They do not have a lift so if you are travelling with luggage consider that too.

Room (and the attached bathroom) is very small. They had a bath tub in the bathroom. Even though it is small they had all the necessary things in the room. Had a window, but view is the next door building. But if you had luggage, it would be difficult to manage as the space will not be enough.

May be because of the color of the bed covers we didnt feel it is very clean. Saw some stains in the underneath the bed cover.

Felt this hotel is bit old. We selected this hotel because they had attached bathroom. Most of the places at this price would be having shared bathrooms.

This is very close to Ueno park. Also the JR Ueno station is close by. But you will have to use Google Map as it is bit difficult to find the place. We even walked to Asakusa from the hotel in the evening.

They provide free coffee in the morning but we didnt get a chance.

In overall it is value for money. We wanted to book the hotel for others days when we returned back from a trip outside Tokyo. But could not get any room, may be because we went in the peak season (March end).

we stayed here for the first time and had two rooms as we were travelling with 2 children 8 and 13. im not sure if they have family rooms but our rooms were next to each other and that was great. Not sure they have a elevator and so ask for a ground floor room if stairs are a problem. They were very helpful and the rooms very clean and neat. although the rooms are smallthe beds are super comfy and the room has everything you need. You are in Tokyo so who has time for sleeping! The hotel is really close to Ueno station so you can explore central Tokyo on the one train line which runs in a circle, which means you can visit Harajuku and other places all without changing trains. Really good if you dont have a lot of time. You are close to restaurants and some good coffee shops for breakfast so make the most of the location. Definately will stay there again, great place and would recommend.
