    I cannot be more pleased with Ueno First City Hotel!!!”

    Honestly, for this price and location - you get more than you bargained for! I am thoroughly impressed with everything about this hotel. Good news for future travelers - they are renovating and upgrading the facade of the building. So everything feels fresh and new! Service may not be like a 5-star hotel, but they are nevertheless ready to help you with any questions you may have. A tip to women travelers, do take the women's amenities at check-in for the stipulated number of nights ;)

    This hotel is exceptional. Our room was cleaned everyday. Towels, robes, slippers and toiletries were replaced everyday. They also offer you different things upon check in like face masks and hair ties. Check in and check out was a breeze. Staff was very courteous. Room was small but we preferred it that way. Near train stations and Don Quixote.

    Everything is okay. Except the smell since I was booked smoking room due to non-smoking was not available. The air purifier didn’t help at all. I was not able to open the window since there was construction nearby. With this price it’s acceptable anyway.

    This hotel is a small gem at Ueno. Shops, restos and trains are all a stone throw’s away from this hotel. Comfortable and clean and will definitely give you a good night’s sleep after a long day of exploring tokyo 😄

    Deceiving photos ”

    Firstly the staff there is not friendly. They don’t even bother to try to understand you if you don’t speak their language. Asked about parking around the area the lady straight replied I don’t know... ridiculous. The room is not like photos listed. Assigned room is small and the bed is Super tiny. Our small cabin Luggage not even able to open fully at all. When we checked in there were a man walking around outside our window during repairs I think?! Had a huge shock. More over it’s Very troublesome that we have to handover the keys when we go out to explore. What kind of stupid hotel policy is that. Will definitely not recommend anyone to go through this experience at all.

    Good value in a good location.”

    Booked a small double room. As expected, it's your typical business hotel so the rooms are small which is typical in Japan so it's a non-issue. We arrived via Keisei Skyliner. The hotel is a about 10 minutes walk from the Keisei station depending on your pace. The bustling Ueno station is just a few steps further. It can be quite of a hike if you have big bags but we only did it on arrival and departure. Location was excellent with lots of restaurants, convenience stores, shops, department stores, etc. around. Don Quijote is just two short blocks away and Ameyoko Street Market is less than 10 mins. away. It's likewise convenient to get around. Okamachi subway and JR station is 5 mins away while Yushima station is just around the corner. It would take you just around 30 minutes or less to get to the other major areas of interest in Tokyo. Rooms are clean and has everything you need i.e. Toiletries, robe, slippers, mini-ref, etc. Staff are friendly and can communicate in basic English.
