We stayed here for 5 nights as part of our trip to Japan in April 2014. We chose the hotel due to its strong reviews on both trip advisor and booking.com.
We arrived very early to the hotel as our flight landed in the morning, while we weren't able to check in early they did kindly store our luggage.
When we did check in we were on the 6th floor facing Ueno park, which was really nice as you can see a small shrine and the sprawling Tokyo city across the lake.
Like most other visitors we noticed the rooms were small, however the room was very clean and actually made well use of the limited space. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom, while small, was good.
The hotel also gave us a great bad of amenities, so if we had forgotten anything we'd have been well covered.
My only small issue with the room was lack of storage. We had two suitcases and with no storage we had to put them under the desk and simply take out what we needed each day. For only 4 nights I could live with this. We also had this problem in another Japanese hotel so I don’t think it’s a unique situation.
I only popped in to look at the ladies bath, unfortunately I didn’t have the time (nor was I brave enough to go in naked!) but it looked very nice.
We were also thrilled with our breakfast which was a Japanese breakfast buffet, for those wanting a little taste of home there was also freshly made bread and some pastries.
Location wise, it's perfect. Very close to Ueno station (which has a direct train to Narita airport) and two subway lines, also plenty of restaurants close by.
The hotel were also kind enough to store our luggage for 4 nights then we travelled to Kyoto and Hiroshima before one final night at the coco grand before departing.
Overall a great stay, would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a hotel in Tokyo.
