"I stay in female room only and it was great. Nice garden, many facilities, hot stone for footh, face steamer, microwave, massage chair. Eventhough no sauna or onsen, but many toilet and bathroom. Spacious, quiet, clean, cooperative neighbour, good price, close to keisei train if you want to take early train to narita airport. I have tried three hotels in ueno and this one is the best. Highly recommend"

"I would definitely recommend the APA Hotel Keisei Ueno-Ekimae to any traveler and I would stay there again. My single, non-smoking room was very small. However, it will not deter me from staying there again. The location is great! It is very convenient to travel to and from the Narita Airport via the Keisei Skyliner, The hotel was literally starring me in the face when I exited the back entrance of the Keisei Ueno station upon my arrival. This was excellent as I arrived at the hotel at night. Also, the JR station, with access to the Yamanote and other subway lines was extremely close, about a 3- 5 minute walk. It took no time (about 10- 15 minutes) to get to other areas of Tokyo for more sightseeing and fun. The Ueno Park, Ueno Zoo, many museums, shops, and restaurants are "right there." My room was clean and the bed felt good and soft (as I like it). The staff was extremely friendly, helpful, answered all of my questions, and were always smiling. The buffet breakfast and the meals at the restaurant that is attached to the hotel on the first floor is good as well. "

"I had my first " solo" travel to Japan, Tokyo and my impression was great thank to this hotel. First the hotel is located strategically close, about 10 minutes of walk l, to train station named Ueno okonimachi . Yet it has a 24 hr grocery store beneath it and there were plenty of good japanese restaurants on the way to or out of the hotel. More importantly if one interested with traveling to Akihabara, this hotel is the best suit and one can travel there by passing only 1 station. It is also close to Ueno park where temples and ueno zoo resides. In term of facility I was satisfied as well. Free-wifi was included so you could plan your travel. Also there were free cofee/tea served outside and free breakfast was available for everyone who stays. My main only gripe was that the room was too small for a family and its recommended if you travel by 1-2. Also if you want someone to clean you room you must leave the "please clean" sign outside. The cleaner wont clean your room without it "

"I recently stayed 5 nights in early February. To begin with, the only "negative" about the Tokyo UenoHotel is the fact that it's a budget hotel in Tokyo, which means the rooms aren't very big, especially for a couple (but that's something you should expect in Tokyo I gather). That being said, I purposely chose this hotel because it wasn't as expensive as other places, and all in all, I was very happy with the choice, and it ended up being my favorite hotel during my whole Japan trip. First off, for those unsure about staying in Ueno versus the flashier neighborhoods, I was extremely happy with my decision to stay in Ueno. The neighborhood gave a certain ambiance that was a bit more working-class compared to the glitzy neighborhoods like Shinjuku or Shibuya. I appreciated that ambiance, as it kind of made the place feel like home. Ueno has a great location with easy access to the Keisei Skyler/Main Line to Narita Airport, the JR Yamanote line, the subway, etc. While Ueno is probably 25-30 minutes away on the Yamanote Line from Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya, etc., it's also quite close to other areas tourists will probably go: Asakusa, Tokyo Station, the Imperial Gardens, Tokyo Dome/Bunkyo Civic Center, etc. Ueno is also fun in it's own right with the market, restaurants, and park nearby. It is about a 10-minute walk from the trains to the hotel, but once you learn the backstreets, you'll realize you're also a bit closer to the Tokyo National Museum and northern end of Ueno Park. In terms of the room specifically, it was small, but the bed was adequate with a really thick and warm comforter. The bathroom had a stunning view of the Tokyo Skytree, and the shower was powerful and hot, which felt good after a long day of sightseeing. One final note, as others have mentioned, skip the breakfast and eat somewhere else nearby. All in all, I'd stay here again."

"In Ueno, there aren't many decent star rated hotels, this is one of the rare few. From Keisei skyline station (assuming you arrive at Narita airport), it's only a 10 minute walk, or a very short taxi ride (no more than 600 yen, or less). Hotel has room at decent size (for Japan), very clean, very helpful staffs at check in. Bed is comfortable with great pillow, room temperature can be adjusted by yourself. So it won't be to warm in winter like some other hotels in Japan with central air conditioning. Best thing is the location. Being in Ueno, you are in a very interesting part of Tokyo, with lots of choices for good food and some of the best bargain shopping in Tokyo. The nearby Ueno park is a great destination in itself for a full day of exploring, cheery blossom viewing, zoo with panda, art gallery, opera house, museums, several different temples to to boost. Ueno JR station is a great hub to explore the rest of Tokyo, metro train to nearby Akakusa. JR train to Tokyo for the bullet train etc. Going to and from the airport could not be easier, a straight 38 minute train ride only! Mistui garden is truly an ideal place to stay when in Tokyo for many reasons."

"We chose this hotel because it's near the Ueno Station (8 min. walk) and Keisei Line/Sky Liner (12 min. walk) and the price was reasonable in spite of the date when we booked it. We had a smooth and fast transactions when we checked-in and checked-out. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. There's no time that we didn't see them not smiling. Our room is always clean and they really won't disturbed you until you remove or they didn't see the "do not disturb" sign on your door. There are convenient stores and vendo machines near the hotel. There's also a vendo machine, ice rack and microwave available in hotel's lobby and an iron board on each floor, near the elevator. The only thing the negative that I can say or think of is the size of the room. It's a small room (but I guess that's a normal in a Japanese hotels) so if you have big luggage, you'll have a problem with the space. But over-all, my friends and I had a great stay at APA Hotel Ueno-Ekimae. :) "

"The location of the hotel is very good as it is accessible by 3 Tokyo Metro stations (Ueno-okachimachi, Ueno-hirokoji and Naka-okachimachi) and 2 JR stations (Okachimachi and Ueno). There is also a Keisei-ueno station (besides Ueno JR station), where you can take the Skyliner to the Narita Airport in 41 minutes! The hotel has a free Onsen for relaxation (public bath) and they also provide free ramen service (at 21.30 pm) for their guests. The Ameyoko Market is just below the hotel and the Ueno Zoo (located at Ueno Park) is just nearby. It is a good place for shopping and dining. I will stay at this hotel when I visit Japan again."
