Checked in on Fri for 2 nights with my girl friend and got a room on the higher floors facing Ueno station.
The place is very new, clean with smart trendy design. I really liked the view facing Ueno station but what's more impressive is the fact you get to see but not hear a thing from all the hustle and bustle! Size is pretty decent by Tokyo standard and the bed is alright - overall very comfortable stay.
The Metro is right at your door step and the JR is only 5min away across the bridge. Ueno is a well connected station, but I felt the location is a little overrated because the journey to a lot of the sightseeing areas down south or west is >30min. This is consistent with what my Japanese colleagues thinks. On the upside there's everything you need in the area in terms of food and necessities next to the JR (South side). The area is very local and feels very down to earth. Japan's google transit is awesome and accurate to the minute for trains/metro. So use that to guage whether Ueno is the place for you.
Don't expect much at this price range but the service was friendly and helpful. You do get reliable wifi in the room, but look elsewhere if you need sports facilities, business centers or something more luxurious.
For 15000 a night this is not a bad shout. You get a very comfortable room in a good location. Those who are looking for something simple that works and prefer to spend money elsewhere should definitely consider this hotel.
