Plan your directions to this hotel well before hand, the hardest part was finding it for the first time, after that it was so easy you wondered why it was so difficult to start with.
This is a typical hotel, with a small room and hard mattress, but all up a decent stay in a great location for the right price.
Only thing is you have to give your key to them everytime you go out, although they remember you as soon as you walk back in and hand it back.
The rooms also have free WIFI and a Lawsons at the entrance of the hotel.

The hotel is a close walk from Ueno station as long as you know the way. The room was supposed to be 12m square but really seems smaller. Service was excellent and the free wifi was provided in the room, which was a great plus. Room was basic but clean and very decent, though the bed was rather hard.

We decided to stay at New Izu due to the location close to Ueno Station. There is a five minute walk to the station and from there you can get around all of Tokyo easily!

I stayed in a western style double room. Two beds, a couch, tv and a small desk. Not big, but large enough - I haven't travelled across the globe to spend all day at the hotel. A friend of mine stayed in a single room, and that was really small.

The hotel offer free wifi and you can get a network cable from the front desk if prefer connecting to the internet without using wifi.

They offer typical Japanese breakfast in a restaurant in the basement, I didn't try it out though. Being close to Ueno station gives you more than enough of other culinary experiences. Just outside the hotel there is a 24/7 open Lawson convenience store where you can by almost anything you need or feel a craving for.

I enjoyed the stay at New Izu and I will stay there again if I need a hotel in Tokyo!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, book a double room - the size difference is worth it!

this hotel is in a great location , not far from the JR Ueno station and Hibiya Metro line Ueno subway station. it may be difficult to find but for first timers, its easier if you follow the directions from their website. its along a small road.
it doesn't look great from the outside and the lobby looks a bit dated too. The rooms are small, but very clean and pretty comfortable. Don't judge a book by its cover, as they say. The service was good as the staff were helpful and courteous . And it was pretty quiet too, even though I was facing the road(which is a small and pretty quiet road) and I was just on the 2nd floor.

A very short walk from Ueno station, close to restaurants and Ueno Park. Good value for the money, provided all we needed for a short stay. Small rooms (typical anywhere in Japan) and I had a shared bathroom, but it was comfortable enough. The staff was very cheerful and helpful will handling our luggage and providing information and advice.

Room Tip: My friends had a double w/ private bathroom and I had a single w/shared bathroom. Both very very sma...

Stayed there for five days during our trip to Japan in November 2012 after having a terrible time in another hotel in Tokyo (see my other review on this). Booked a japanese style room for two persons which met our expectations for the price we paid very well. The room included a TV, a small Refrigerator, a closet and a small table with a tea set. The bath room was suprisingly big with an extra corridor leading to a tiny toilet room. All in all very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even gave us a farewell a few wooden chopsticks as a thank you for our long stay. Nearby the hotel is a small Watson convenience store which is open 24h.
The location is an excellent base from which to explore Toyko. Nearby you will find beautiful Ueno park, Akihabara and Asakusa. All acessible by feet.
