Not so comfy
Room is too small with beds not suitable for 2. I have booked for 5 persons in 2 rooms but the mattress was too small for even 2 persons. Disappointed with the rooms. Hubby had to sleep on the floor and caught flu and fever.
The hotel is located very good location just less than 10 minutes walking to Metro Train station. Front Desk staff is welcoming and helpful when we need some information. Room is good enough for space and cleanliness but they have no housekeeping service. Overall is happy even we have to early check-out 1 day to move to other hotel near by Narita Airport because of Typhoon Hagibis.
Good value and meets all-round basic needs
Book this with your eyes open and manage your expectations and you will be more than fine. As we had a long stay (nearly 2 weeks) and we needed 2 rooms for our family, we wanted to choose a hotel that gave us enough of what we needed without breaking the bank because Tokyo is a pretty expensive city and we needed to stretch our budget for food, shopping, transport. We chose MyStays Inaricho after going through many other hotel reviews on this site so we want to pay the help forward with this review. - Overall, a decent stay as the hotel was well located in a quiet neighbourhood with a 5 min walk to Ginza line subway, and room had very good amenities. I would suggest a serious refreshing of some rooms, especially the carpets. Also, to provide a cleaning service every 3-4 days if requested. And, to spruce up on the general cleaning of the rooms after guests check out....I would rate the room a 7/10 for cleanliness as I had to give various items a once-over before we settled in.... the airvents (very dusty); the shelves (dusty); bathroom ceiling (black specks); sinks (muck in the plugs and edges that had not been cleaned away for a while); the aircon vents (dusty), microwave (smelly with stale food)..... but maybe that's me cuz I expect a clean-enough environment to be in! I think I may have left the room cleaner than when I entered it....LOL! - Room is small. Was a bit taken aback at first entry as room was basically a walkway between the small super single bed (smaller than regular Queen) and the writing desk/dressing table/fridge counter etc - We had 2 rooms side by side (hotel has no adjoining rooms) and the rooms varied in condition, One was well lit with bright main room light and the other was dimmer and had wallpaper that was torn. The rooms looked tired and could REALLY do with new carpets (the biggest let down of the room). - Hotel is very clever with space usage. Despite the small size, the room had good built-in storage design with many open shelves, a small cupboard for hanging clothes, a large under-bed pull out drawer, closed cabinets - Room has air con unit (was very noisy as it shuddered and squeaked once turned on); kettle; flat screen TV, tiny bathtub (not for tall person), EXCELLENT strong shower with great temperature control, microwave oven (smelt of stale food), fridge, second sink outside bathroom. - Amenities provided in room: generous full size Pola shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, clothes refresher spray, happy coat, room slippers (non-disposible type.....so bring your own if concerned about hygiene) - NO cleaning service: Towels and bedsheets to be brought down to reception to exchange for new ones when needed; For our long stay, we had to clean the rooms and toilets ourselves or risk a dirty environment. I borrowed a vacuum cleaner to clean the carpet and showered down the compact bathroom from time to time. - Beds are a bit hard (Simmons mattresses....could do with a mattress topper) and 2 low pillows are provided. - Pick up good selection of items from reception as and when needed: toothbrush; comb, razor, back scrub towel, cotton puff, cotton bud, rubbish bags, shower cap, tea, coffee, face toner, moisturiser, cleanser, make up remover...... - Hotel has self-operatored washing machines (200Y per wash); dryer (100Y per 15mins); 100 yen for soap powder; drinks vending machine, wifi, umbrellas on loan, can store luggage in open reception area. - There are 9 floors (2 on ground floor) and all rooms are for max 2 people. No way can 3 people stay in there comfortably. - Reception opens 8am - 10pm. Staff were pleasant with good standard of English and a few spoke Chinese fluently (don't know if they were native Chinese as Ueno area has many Chinese nationals in the service industry) - There is construction right next to the hotel and the work starts at 8am. Noise was bearable as currently at piling stage....the dust was not noticeable.
All round winner
This Mystays is perfectly located - 3 minutes walk to the Inaricho station of the Ginza subway and another 5 to Ueno's main station. It is in the Mystays mould of no cleaning and help yourself to clean towels etc. The room I had was well designed (storage under the bed) and quiet at night. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. Convenience stores are a minute or two away, a nice modern neighbourhood breakfast/lunch place in modern Japanese style over the road. A friendly neighbourhood bar, Anam is around the corner in Akasuka Dori. Great value for money.
Walking distance to Ueno station
The stays at Ueno Inaricho was very pleasant. The hotel itself is easy to locate and only 10 - 15 minutes walking away from the Ueno station. There is a number of convenience stores in the surrounding area (there were 5 on the direct way from Ueno station), there are also several restaurants and a subway station. The hotel itself is located close to Asakusa Market & Tokyo Skytree as well, so it's a good base for exploring this area and the proximity of the JR Ueno Station gives you a good connection to the rest of Tokyo as well as easy to get to Tokyo Station from where you can visit more places. As for the room, I found it spacious enough given Japanese standards of small rooms. There was a kettle and microwave, which were very useful. The room also had it's own sink. The place does not offer room service, which can be annoying to some visitors, for us it worked well. There is a laundromat in the basement with 4 washing machines and 4 driers as well as several dispense machines for washing powder , etc. The Front Desk closes for the night. During the day there is a number of items you can take, from teas to toothbrushes. There is also a room with Vending machines offering beer and non-alcoholic beverages. The internet connection was good and we had no issues with it. Overall I can rate this stay as highly positive, it fulfilled our expectations and we got to have a great time in Tokyo.
