As one of the major gateways into and out of Tokyo, Ueno is well served with business hotels, although there are few grand or outstanding options in either the midrange or top-end segments of the market. For budget lodgings and anything with character, cast your sights towards Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi, where you'll find some great long-running ryokan (traditional Japanese inns) and newer, trendy hostels.
