Comfortable and convenient
Posted Jul 9, 2014
Room was spacious, futon bed on floor, cold a/c room unit, window opened to street side, free wi-fi. Double room had two large futons which were very comfortable & floor table, hot water pot & tea packets. Convenience store across street always seemed open. Single shower with changing room could be locked. Toilet at end of hall with a hand rinse at top of tank was different. Stairs are narrow and steep (expected at a Ryokan) so do not plan on large/heavy luggage or small children who may find stairs irresistable. There is a small shared fridge and sink. Washer/dryer combo available - minimal cost, laundry soap provided. As it is 5-15 min walking to Ueno activities (Zoo, Park, Shrine, JR Ueno station, Ameyokocho shopping section) there are also occasional taxi passing.
