Pretty good value
Location was pretty good, about 3 blocks from :JR station Okachimachi, one or two blocks from 3 different Subway lines so easy to get around from here. Room was pretty good, as was internet, although did have some problems staying connected,but was fast enough when hooked up.. Only real complaint was coffee and breakfast at the hotel not available till 8am. We had to run across the street every morning to get coffee at the Family Mart. At least it was close. Sun comes up at arround 6 am (late October) so don't get the breakfast if you want an early start.Only other minor complaint is they use regular keys and want you to give them the key when you leave and show them a piece of paper when you return. With 2 people this can be problematic if you go different ways and you're not sure who will return first.

Overall, I'm quite satisfied with this hotel; location, service, service-mind of front office (especially the young lady which I couldn't remember her name, truly sorry, that tried to help us in contacting attraction we'd like to go and use only Japanese!) The only thing that I felt a bit unpleasant was a musty smell from their bed sheet and blanket; might be because it's rainy season

Great at location. But there is only stairs can be reach to the reception desk, so it is difficult for someone have heavy suit-cases to carry. Nice hotel since I lived in Ueno area for several different hotels, This is the best.
