We booked two nights at The Hideout Tokyo based on glowing reviews in TripAdvisor and, having now experienced it, I wonder whether we even stayed at the same property as did those with reviews headlined "Perfect stay" or "We found Heaven." Prospective guests would do well to have appropriate expectations, especially in terms of the size of the rooms, sobering even by Tokyo standards. To call it a "boutique hotel" is to glorify it quite a bit; More accurately, it is an upscale hostel with minimal services. Our first-floor room could not have measured more than 10 feet square (sorry, metric users), and the bathroom area was about 3 feet by 7 feet. That left roughly 7 by 10 feet of living space, just enough room for a double bed (full, not queen), flanked by two very narrow end tables; there was not room to fit a chair. If you are a single adult or an adult with young child, the space might do, but for two tidy, not especially large adults, it is cramped. Another disappointment was the immediate neighborhood, which we found drab and lacking in character.  We chose to stay in Ueno because we wanted to experience a different area of Tokyo and take in sights close by, which are many, e.g., the museums at Ueno Park, Yanesen, etc. While both the park and Yanesen did not disappoint, in the end staying in Ueno itself proved not to be as worthwhile and considerably less convenient. On the plus side, the receptionist was very cordial, the rooms were clean, the neighborhood was quiet, and the hotel is close to two stations, therefore easily accessible to other parts of Tokyo. But options for local eating in the immediate vicinity were not interesting enough to keep us local. On the whole, apart from price, the benefits of staying at the Hideout didn't outweigh the disadvantages, mostly importantly location and lack of interesting local color (restaurants, particularly).

The Barn Tokyo is such a great place to stay in Tokyo. The location was great and close to the metro stations. The rooms were cute, functional and extremely clean. May and her mom were incredibly sweet. We were on our honeymoon and they gave me a bouquet of flowers! May's hospitality was one of the best I've ever experienced. She was always prepared to answer any questions and very eager to help with recommendations. I highly recommend!

Great Japanese style hotel, close to transport. Clean and modern and friendly. We stayed two nights. Has good wifi and Netflix. We like the free pastrys and coffee in the morning, it's around 10 stops to Shinjuku if your ok with that.

The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood in the Ueno area. The hotel is within a few minutes walk to Metro Iriya Station and JR Uguisudani Station, which connects you to most parts of the city. Aimy received us at the hotel and she was very nice. She explained the details to us and even helped us with our baggage. She also responded quickly to our enquiries and helped us receive a parcel before we even arrived at the hotel! The hotel is spacious in Japanese standard particularly when it comes to Tokyo where land space is scarce. The room is modernly designed and well thought out with space under the bed to store our luggage. The bed is really comfortable and would allow you to recharge after a long day. There is also complimentary coffee and banana for everyone in case you need it. There is also free Netflix at each room! Recommend this hotel to everyone and would definitely be returning!

We had the pleasure to stay 4 nights at this wonderful petite hotel. A short walk to subway and yamanote line stations and all Ueno has to offer. To the staff thankyou for your hospitality and kindness, would not hesitate to recommend.
