            Very nice biznes-type hotel, with English-speaking personnel [mostly ^^]

            No Wi-Fi internet.

            We arrive earlier and the staff is nice to let us ckeck in. There is a public pc at lobby.

            The location and room rate are great. If you take breakfast, that is excellent.

            The internet is out of order for over half day.

            Very friendly, uncomplicated staff. Bicycles for hire at hotel at low cost. Free high-speed internet. Very good value for money. Reasonably priced breakfast buffet. Excellent location easy to reach from airport. Close to Asakusa shrine and shopping street for kitchenware. I can recommend running sushi at Maguro Bito in Orange street and several restayrants for unagi (traditional japanese-style eel).

            The staff was exceptionally friendly and quite helpful as well. Staff's English was not great but for Japan, it was much better than average.

          • Single
            8.8

            I liked the location, value for money, good in room facilities for price and bed linen

            The room was a bit small, and bathroom door could have been designed to slide rather than open into room, so giving more space in the bedroom

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Proximity to public transit, restaurants, shops and food marts.

            Lack of storage space and table/desk surface in the room. The room was small but if they added coat hooks to the walls it would be really useful for hanging daypacks, purses, coats etc. The bathroom was not very clean between the tub and walls or in the hinge area of the toilet seat.

          • Single
            10.0

            Excellent choice of hotel. Everything is new, staff is very friendly, the wifi internet is really fast and the location, close to Metro stations and the big Ueno station is very good. You can spot the new Skytree tower as you approach the hotel. I definitely recommend it and will stay there again if I have the chance.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location, location, location. We emerged from the metro subway, and Agora Place was just across the street, with a 24-hour Family Mart convenience right next doors. The famous Kaminarimon gate, shopping arcade, and Sensoji Temple are all within easy walking distance as are gourmet (including Imai of sukiyaki fame) and reasonably priced eateries. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We checked out early the next morning but they kept our luggage for us while we walked around the Asakusa area for half a day. Will definitely return to this hotel in the future. Small room, like most Japanese hotels, but very clean and with a good amount of amenities. Vending machine on same floor. Fairly long phone call to Roppongi cost a mere 31 yen extra! WiFi available, as are PCs in the lobby. IPads are available for rent.

            None, from a very satisfied customer with realistic expectations of a hotel of this price range. We had reservations in Takeshiba for the ensuing two nights but couldn't get accommodations for our first night in Tokyo. Agora more than met our need for our first-night accommodations. We will definitely recommend this place to others and consider future stays here.

            It worths every penny I paid: Good price, good location, clean, friendly.

            The internet, either ethernet or wifi, is not stable. It breaks from time to time. I think it a problem of narrow band width. The band width is not enough to meet the need of so many guests.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Place was very new and rooms were styled well. We were within a 20 second walk to the nearest train station (Ginza line) which took us everywhere we wanted to go. Hotel staff were very lovely, my bag was lost by the airline and staff were very helpful getting it sorted. Area was great. Would defiantly recommend this hotel to everyone :)

            Rooms were very small, barely room for our two suitcases. But this is the case in all budget friendly hotels in Tokyo.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            I like the reasonable pricing and the location as Hotel is near a Train station and near Ueno market. Hotel is also modern and clean and has unlimited free wifi!

            The rooms for 2 people are way too small (even for two people) as there was hardly even sufficient walking space. They also do not look anything like the pictures on your website which show them as more spacious than in reality. As a family of 3 - 2 adults and 1 child, we booked a room there but we had to upgrade to a twin and a double room at almost double the cost. We told the staff that we had booked based on the pictures on your website as the room did look big enough. They understood and were kind enough to extend a lower extension rate to us to upgrade our room.

            Great location, clean, comfortable..steps from subway station and attractions...great for a Tokyo visit.

            Perfect...good value.

            The hotel is amazing! Nice design, good services, very professional staff... They provide everything needed for a pleasant stay, especially the rooms are equipped in an excellent way and very comfortable. Position is ok for the most popular touristic locations in Tokyo, the metro station is at 2 minutes walking - so this is a good choice especially for girls traveling alone, becuase it's safe even to come back a bit late at evening.
