I've stayed at the hotel many times through the years. A month ago the complete remodeling project was completed. I am so impressed with the results! The rooms and public areas are all new and bright and fresh. The bathrooms have been totally replaced. My room even looks larger than before. No lift (elevator) is the only shortcoming. The entire staff is still wonderful, too.
Booked the room as non smoking and on checkin no smoking signs were everywhere. But the room stunk of smoke. It must have been a smoking hotel for many years until recently. We had 3 nights booked and paid for but left after the first night. NOT EVEN A PARTIAL REFUND. No lift, Which is not stated. Disorganised checkin. Way overpriced for the standard of facilities. Better, cheaper places nearby.
Small hotel with excellent and very helpful - kind staff all the day. Perfect location, near to Ueno station (subway and JR) with Seven Eleven in the area for small food or other super market needs. Very good WiFi signal in the first (Second in Japan) floor, very good and clean the single room with large single bed.
Location: very convenient for seeing around town Finding the hotel: wasn’t too hard to find. We arrived at night n it was fairly easy to find. Reception service: 3/5 Room condition: not smelly, moldy, black spots on the wall, dusty at the ceiling area Bed: too soft and it’s double bed is not suitable for 2 persons as mentioned online. I did not have a good rest. Aircond: works very well Toilet: Tokyo n Osaka toilets are small. So the size was fine with me. It is clean too. No smell House keeping: day 1 they did housekeeping Day 2, no housekeeping . Fresh towels are provided daily. Staff: friendly staff I understand it’s a low budget hotel but maybe in terms of cleanliness can be improved? I am not interested to stay in this hotel again. But if u don’t mind the above, then it’ll be alright.…
Usually Japanese hotels are very clean and well maintained even if they are old. But not this hotel. There's black mould on the wall paper in the room and in the bathroom. The bedspread is stained with what looks like semen, blood and coffee. Don't be deceived by the photos.
My friend and I, both women on the far side of 60, arrived on foot with all our bags for a month-long trip. Taking the Keisei Skyliner from Narita to the Ueno station couldn’t be easier, and Google maps helped us find the hotel. Granted, you have to keep your eyes out, but the photos at each intersection made a big difference in getting there. This is a quaint little place, but the friendly staff made an enormous difference. The older gentleman carried all our bags, without question, up the two flights to our room. The room is not particularly big, but it worked well for us. To get an idea of the bathroom size, think of the bathrooms in cabins on a cruise ship. Beware of the small step from the floor level in the bathroom and the room proper. There were enough outlets to charge all our devices, enough room for our small suitcases and backpacks, an alcove with a desk area where we could lay out paperwork and such. Just a short walk away is Ueno JR Station (climb up stairs next to the street for the footbridge leading to the station. There are lots of great things in the station - bookstore, toilets, huge panda decoration for spring, Anderson bakery, Starbucks, murals, and a whole bunch of nice restaurants (try Grill 1930for good food at a good price). I would stay at the New Tohoku any time, happily.…
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. …
The word " new" is very misleading as this hotel is consider very old and smelly carpet. Not advisable to stay even it is near Ueno station. For low budget traveller may be suitable. The location at the back of high building make it not easy to find it.
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.…
