“Great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and it was so wonderfully situated - close to the Ueno station, and right in the middle of some great dining options. It was great to have a ground floor suite (with such heavy luggage). The beds were small, but delightfully firm (the way I like them). The decor in the room is humble, but functional. The shower was lovely and hot.

I wish there was a rating between "Average" and "Very Good" - because the people and the service were excellent, and deserve a better rating than "Average".

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.

I found this hotel to be quite pleasant. The people who own it are so kind. They told us about good restaurants in the area and even held our luggage for us for a few hours after we checked out. The rooms are small, but not uncomfortable. There is free wifi and a computer available for use. It's quiet and in a really neat area of Tokyo.

The staffs were GREAT! they even let me keep the luggage while I was out shopping on the last day of the stay.

HOWEVER, the room was small even for Tokyo's standard. The bed was VERY HARD! I do enjoy hard mattress but this was just like sleeping on the floor.

The room was quite muggy as well. There was no space for any luggage.
The location was not convenient neither. It was at least 5 to 10 minutes walking distance away from subway station, and there are no elevators or escalators so if you have heavy luggage you are out of luck.

The hotel was 1.5 block from the main road in front of the JR Ueno Station. It was closest to Tokyo Metro's Hibiya line's Ueno exit. We had the twin room (two twin beds). It was surprising large by Japanese standard. Although the bedding seemed old, the room and the bathroom were clean and comfortable. The AC was somewhat noisy, like the kind found in American 3 star hotels. The owners were helpful and friendly. The Japanese breakfast was very good value and tasty though separate payment and reservation the night before were required. There was a hot water pot in the room that you could use to make tea. The hotel provided washer and dryer facillity at a small fee but you do have to walk through the kitchen to access the laundry facility.

Room Tip: room with two twin beds seems to be the largest.

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
