“Good location for the right price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

Yes. There is no getting around it. The rooms are small for a western standard, but you are in Tokyo! Very clean, bed was comfy and there is an English speaking news channel for those who like to catch up with the world. We really enjoyed the location as it was easy access to the JR and subway line to get you wherever you needed to go. Others may like the Shinjuku area better but this was a little bit quieter, reasonably priced and had a great market nearby with awesome yakitori and izakaya bars. Would we stay at this hotel again? Probably would. You never know what you might get in other hotels.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback.
We are glad to know you thought our hotel was located in a good place for the right price.
Ueno may not be as modernly fancy as Shinjuku but you can see Japanese traditional culture too. We also hope to see you again at our hotel.

Best Regards,
Ueno Touganeya Hotel

This Hotel is a couple of minutes walk to Ueno station, which is your gateway to anywhere in Tokyo,
with markets just around the corner. Ueno station has a Hard Rock Cafe and plenty shops and a supermarket to pick up food. The room is small, but you are in Tokyo! but it is very clean, and the staff spoke some English, which was good because our Japanese sucks :)
This was a lovely trip, we visited Studio Ghibli Museum, and did some Karaoke of course, we will definitely be back.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback.
We are glad to hear you found the location very convenient.
Our hotel is very close to JR station, and subway station too so it is very easy to go to any places in Tokyo. Not only in Tokyo but since there is a bullet train running from Ueno, you can go to different places in Japan easily too.
Hope to see you again at our hotel soon!

We went to Japan for a 10 days trip and used this hotel as a base. The room is not so big when you got to put your huge luggage in it, but definitely enough space for 2 people. All equipment in the room work well, clean, and modern. Good size bathroom with a bathtub and automatic toilet seat. There are vending machines in every even floor which is really convenient. Even thought, it's only 1 minute walk to Lawson convenient store and a few minute walk to the main road and Ueno station.

Room Tip: The hotel is about 5 minutes walk to Ueno market, where many restaurants and shops are located.

The hotel is located in a perfect position to reach every part of the city, very near the Ueno station with both metro and JR lines. The hotel is in a quiet street and we didn't hear noises during the night. The staff was really nice and always kind and helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor, a small room but in line with the japanese standard; although the hotel is a 2 stars, it supplies all the necessary amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner) but also air dryer, tea kettle and TV. Moreover it was very clean. We chose a smoking room although we don't smoke for the lower price, but we suggest to not chose it if you don't smoke since for the first days there was an unpleasant smell.
We really suggest this hotel, the ratio quality/price is really high.

Room Tip: avoid smoking room if you are not a smoker

This is my third visit to this hotel. Everything is the same as it was and the standard of service is still perfect. I was telling my wife going back to this hotel and stay is just like going back home again. Keep up the excellent job and we hope tobe back again soon.

I stayed there recently with 2 kids (3 and 8) and I rent non-smoking with 4 beds. It's beyond my expectation on for Japan 3 stars hotel - room is spacious with 2 bed (around 120 cm width) and one duplex bed; kids love it so much and it's very comfortable

There is free wifi but very slow, luckily I rent a mobile wifi from japan-wireless.com; minus point : breakfast only Japanese style and my kids have problem with it but you walk around 8 minutes you can arrive Ueno station, and there is one nice local cafe and Starbucks inside.

I will definitely will come back and recommend to friend.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for the kind review.
We are very glad to hear that our rooms were beyond expectation.
It is a pleasant news to hear you found the room spacious.
We will also take in your remark on our breakfast and wifi.
We are sorry to hear your kids did not enjoy our Japanese food, breakfast. Regarding on the internet, our access point is in the middle so we believe wifi was slow because your room was at the end. However, we will try to improve our internet connection so guests can access to fast internet anywhere.
We are hoping to welcoming you soon and hope you have a great year!

We are big family of 11 (7 adults and 4 children age 3 to 8). We stayed in 3 family rooms and a double room in Dec 2013.

Room:
The family room is big enough for 2 adults and 2 children. There were 2 single beds plus a bunk bed with good space for luggage. The double room would be good for couple. All the rooms are tastefully appointed, clean including the bedsheets and towels. The Shiseido toiletries were lovely bonus in the clean and compact bathroom.

Location:
The great feature of this hotel is its location which is within five minutes walk from three train stations of Keisei-Ueno, UENO Japan Rail and Ueno Subway. There are also many great eateries around the hotel. And, the 24hr convenient store right around the corner.

Staff:
The staff is very friendly and helpful in many ways - helping with the directions around Tokyo, restaurant reservations and with our luggage. As our group was big with many luggage, the staff even guided us from the station to their hotel upon our arrival. In fact, the hospitality started even before we arrived. The staff had answered many of our questions via email when we were at home!

Facilities:
We find the washer machine and dryer (coin operated and hotel sells the soap and softener too) to be extremely useful during our stay.

In all ways, the hotel exceeded our expectations given the rates are very reasonable as well. We will definitely stay in this hotel again.
