Friendly staff who avoid being

Friendly staff who avoid being overbearing or intrusive and speak good English - thus redoubling my guilt at STILL not getting to grips with basic Japanese. A decent size room by Tokyo budget hotel standards and in impeccable condition. Room and the ensuite were serviced to a high standard daily. No curfew and secure entry after 1am but despite that the hotel was quiet and not some backpackers frat house. The guests were from a wide range of countries and of all ages so no-one need feel out of place. Its great location puts you 10 minutes from Ueno Station and the Yamanote Line, 15 minutes from the Keisei Ueno which takes you to and from Narita in around an hour. In the other direction you're 15 minutes from Asakusa and never far from a wide choice of cheap, good quality food and pleasant coffee shops. I stayed a week and didn't eat at the same place twice, still had loads left to try. Long story short; a good time was had and I'll definitely be back.

A friendly hotel, but one could do better in the area (Asakusa Ryokan Toukaisou nearby was about a third cheaper and had bigger rooms with bigger ensuite bathrooms) the single room I had did not have enough floor space to keep a suitcase open. However, they have a hotel rather than a hostel reception and there was usually a free internet terminal available. They also have a free bike to loan although these are available to rent for very little in the area.

Its An OK hotel = OAK hotel. The

Its An OK hotel = OAK hotel. The room is small and just adequate for 2 person. The problem I experienced is that I stayed in Japan for 10days and our luggage was big. So the room becomes more smaller because of our luggage. If you plan to go Japan and not buying many things then this hotel is good. Otherwise if you plan to buy a lot of things like me then the hotel is too small for you.

Western style beds are a bit hard.

Western style beds are a bit hard. Overall room is slightly bigger then other hotels. Staff is always there to help and will invite you to celebrate local holidays. Dryer is a bit small with load size to drying ratio. Overall, a good experience and will use them again.

Second stay at this hotel. Friendly staff, free internet in lobby and rooms. plus shared laundry, kitchen and small dining area. Small but adequate rooms en suite with air con. Excellent location for Kisei line from Narita, metro and Yamanonte line, walking distance to Asakusa and Akihabara, plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby.

Oak Hotel is a great place to

Oak Hotel is a great place to stay that is very foreigner friendly in Japan, which is kind of a rare thing. However, it is so foreigner friendly, that practically no Japanese stay here, and because of that, NO TAXIS no where it is---So, you should have VERY good directions or the address of the hotel in Japanese so they can plug it into their GPSes. That said, the place is very hospitable, very clean and friendly, and has very adequate facilities for a weekend or longer stay in Tokyo area. 8.5 of 10 stars, I believe. The proximity is the only downside of this place, and the lack of taxis knowing where it is.

The staff were very nice and spoke very good English, I was so impressed. I enjoyed the nice and cosy room. And finding the hotel was a lot easier than I had expected. Will definitely stay there again next time I am in Tokyo.
