The hotel's location is great -- very close to the Ueno station. There's a great market nearby also. The hotel is small but clean, cute and efficient -- a great introduction to Japan and Japanese people. The breakfast is quite nice, although a small portion. I'd stay there again if I go to Tokyo once more. The hotel room is small, but so are almost all Tokyo hotels.
Clean nice hotel with great transport location - very near Ueno JR station. Great value for money.
Great location, a few hundred meters away from Ueno station, near a lively area for shopping. Great helpful staff. Nice room. Blanket on the bed was a little dirty. Breakfast was very small.
Good location. The level of cleanliness of the room was fair but it's better not to look into the details. Moreover, there is a vending machine and a microwave at some floors, and the microwave was absolutely disgusting. The room was the smallest I had during my trip in Japan and needs some painting and a new carpet. The breakfast is really average, plus it's not a buffet so you don't choose the quantity.
The room is excellent clean. The view of room also quite nice. overall is very good. The breakfast set is very limited choice, just 4 type of them.
Conveniently located next to multiple subway stations poor wifi
Very close to the JR station, convenience store very convenient indeed. Not much space to hang clothes, but that was the case in every hotel I stayed at in Japan.
Proximity to railway station and very clean and modern hotel.
Very modern facilities and pleasant staff
Very friendly and helpful staff, super comfortable room (although small, but this is normal for Tokyo) free laundry, and easy access to the convenience store. Asakusa-bashi is quite far away from a lot of the main areas of interest of Tokyo (Shibuya, Omotesando, Shinjuku) therefore you spend a lot on subway tickets. Also, the restaurants in the areas cater more to the Japanese and many don't have English menus, so there are limited options if you can't read Japanese.
Very convenient in terms of location, 24-hour store, free laundry facilities, free (wired) internet connection, very helpful staff, and has everything you need.
You cannot beat the location. The hotel is a few minutes' walk from the Ueno JR rail station and the Keisei station for the train to/from Narita airport. A subway stop is in the same building as the hotel. You can get to/from the hotel and these stations on foot either on pedestrian overpasses or underground. If you use the overpasses, there are elevators in case you are lugging suitcases around. The rooms are very small but impeccably clean and well equipped, and the beds are comfortable. Once windows and blinds are closed, you don't hear traffic. There is an Italian restaurant in the building that makes rather good food. They also make (mostly Japanese) breakfast, and there is a western-style coffee place right next to the hotel entrance.
Close to the stations, Skyliner to Ueno is very fast(45min), alots of shops close by for you warming up and last moment shopping before you leave the city. Staffs was helpful to me for whatever I ask. They have scale to weigh your luggage if you need, laptop to rent, laundry room on the second floor for few hundred yens. I also let few things delivered to the hotel, all on date and in perfect state. Not all staffs speak English, but they do have a few who do, so find the right one.
The location is very good, is near the subway station, is close to the city centre by subway. The rooms are very small and the staff can not speak English very well. They can not understand you.
Good hotel but poor restaurant and in room service. Restaurant
All the hotel staff are great, they are very helpful!
The Location The Enterance
Location, room, easy check in-out no english on air-con control board
The bathroom was not clean (e.g. floor).
The room is really clean with room service everyday. Staffs are friendly and speak English very very very well. Toiletries replenish everyday. The surrounding of the hotel is in a beautiful and quiet district. I hope the next time I come to Tokyo, I can still reserve a room. The bathroom is kind of too small, a turn in the shower required some squeezing. Around 10 minutes walk from Hotel to Nezu Metro Station and 15-20 minutes walk from Hotel to Keisei Ueno/JR Ueno Station through the Ueno Park, which is quite far in some sense.
The APA Akasukabashi has small rooms that are filled with luxury. The down comforter and big screen TV are great for down time in the room. The Shisedo bath products give the feel of being at a higher end hotel. When you enter the lobby you are greeted with aromatic delights and a bright foyer. There wasn't much not to like. They do make you pay for the iron and the staff speak limited English, even though all my questions were answered.
A very new and modern hotel, it's huge compared to japanese standars. Take the Skyliner from the airport with the 3 day metro unlimited pass and you will arrive to Ueno station, two big blocks away like 4 min walking The breakfast is from 7 - 9 and i usually wake up at 9 !
Great option in this area. Walking distance from the station and all the fun things to do in Asakusa. Nice and clean sauna and onsen. Outdoor and indoor baths! The dryers don't work!! We complaint about it but they didn't put a note or any warning on the machines.
