We wanted to visit Naoshima, and at the time this hotel seemed like a decent choice. What a disappointment! Hotel is stand-alone, 5 bus stations from the center of Ueno, without any restaurants near it. Hotel is '70s architecture' and so are the rooms and the decor. Carpets are dirty and worn out, dirty glass front leading to terrace (with amazing sea view), poor breakfast, no control of AC, no closets/drawers at all, ...Consider this hotel only if you canwt afford to sleep on the island.
