Location is great for first time Tokyo travellers. It took a bit over an hour to get there from Narita with Keisei Skyliner to Ueno. Tokyo Metro station and JR Yamanote station are a few minutes walk from the hotel. Hotel is easy to find with the instructions you get from the hotel and you can use Google street view to familiarize yourself with the street beforehand. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are nice and quiet. Next door is a 24/7 shop and there are plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Within 15 minutes walk there is a huge amount of restaurants, shops and whatever services you might need. Ueno is not an area that specializes in servicing tourists in english, but you'll survive.
Check-in time is 15:00 and we arrived four hours early, however the staff was able to arrange the room for us at 15 minutes notice at no extra cost. After a long night flight this was a really pleasant suprise. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Several staff members speak english so there are no communication problems.
We had the largest room with two semi-double beds and a sofa for our family of four. The room was otherwise comfortable, but it was a bit difficult to fit our clothes and other stuff to the rather small cabinetry. The noisy bathroom fan had problems keeping the humidity level down after four people showering there. Otherwise I have no complaints, everything was clean and all gadgets including air conditioning were working properly.
Based mainly on tripadvisor reviews, I tried first to make reservation to a few other hotels/ryokans, but they were already booked up. New Izu had vacancy and I'm perfectly happy with this choice. I doubt that you can find much better deal for a family trip in Tokyo.
