My stay at Coco Grand Ueno was amazing. The 7 of us stayed over 4 different rooms. While the rooms are tiny, they are fully equipped. You cannot fault the rooms, really! They even have two portable messagers to help your body after a whole day of walking (You'll be walking lots around Ueno for the food and the shopping!). Location is great, really close to both Ueno Keisei station (Keisei station takes you from Ueno to Narita Airport in 41 minutes), the Shinkansen station (inter-cities), and the Metro Ueno station. The hotel is 5 minutes away from Ameyokocho, a great area full of izakayas (local bars with yummy snacks) and 5 minutes away from Ueno Park where there are many museums worth seeing. The best parts of this hotel are the buffet breakfast (offering Japanese and western food) and the hot baths (separate male and female, no additional charge). The baths are equipped with message chairs and showers, as the Japanese tradition requires you to shower before bathing. Be respectful and remember that the baths are for soaking and not for cleaning. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the hotel has two vending machines for drinks and ice creams, and a laundry/dryer is a refreshing change from the exorbitant prices other hotels charge for laundry. The only minor fault is there is only one elevator, but I never had to wait for too long.
