This is the second time we've stayed in this hotel. We stayed here in Aug 2012 and ended up booking again for our last minute trip in Nov 2013. We chose this place because of its location and convenience. We got a semi-double room and I would have to say the rooms here are somewhat smaller compared to other hotels out there but the rooms are clean and the service is great and so is the location (as long as you know where you are going!). It's a short walk to and from the JR Ueno station. From the JR Ueno station, take the Central Gate exit and go up the escalator beside Hard Rock Cafe. You'll pass through some restaurants and exit out to the overpass. Just keep walking straight and go down the escalator/stairs at the end. You'll see it across, on your righthand side. Ameyoko is also a few steps away. We just recently discovered you can walk to Akihabara (about a 15-20 min walk) by going through Ameyoko with the train on your right side/under the train tracks.
The hotel will also keep your luggage, even for days. Takuya was very helpful and it was always nice seeing his friendly face at the front desk. I guess the only thing I didn't like about my recent stay was the room we were in (#203) had a window facing the next building which was inches away-- it felt really cramped. We stayed in another room on our return back (#209 I think) and it was much better with a view of the side streets.
