Do NOT stay at this hotel. Horrible experience.

Close to train station and Ueno area.
Do not stay at this hotel! This is the first hotel in Japan where the service was not good. When I showed up for the "breakfast" a few minutes late they (they gave me the wrong end time at check in), the staff treated me like a criminal. When I politely asked if I could have a cup of orange juice from the machine right in front of us, she scolded me and made a face. I just left to save the trouble. Worse, the manager watched everyone like a hawk and when my visiting friend tried to go upstairs to the room to retrieve something, she was denied access and treated rudely because she "did not book the room herself." Other bad things about this hotel: main light did not work in my room; they posted a huge sign beside the main elevator informing everyone that they are being watched by some centralized security company (scary indeed); cleaning lady that kept trying to look in my room why I was getting ready; they give you shampoo and other standard room amaenities at the front desk as if you are a thief; no iron to borrow, instead you have to lug up a pants press to your room; and a lot more I could say, but will spare you the complaining. I will never stay there again. Beware!

Great location in Ueno

It's near the Uenohirokoji subway station only 50 meter by walk. It's easy access from Narita Airport cos it's far from Keisei Ueno station only 600 meter by walking on under ground road from Keisei Ueno to Uenohirokoji subway station. It's easy to access to every attractive places from Uenohirokoji subway station. For the breakfast, they have only croissant and some bread with coffee and juice but there are 2 restaurants in front of the hotel. The room is clean but the cleaning services of the hotel take time between 10am-4pm so we can't come back to our at this time.
