Honeymoon in Japan

From the moment we arrived to our 'honeymoon suite' all the way through until we left, the Oak Hotel staff was 100% compliant with anything and everything we desired and more. Even with the earthquake, the loss of power and news updates (not in english) they kept us posted with the current events and made sure that we had a Black Electrical Torch aka flashlight working at all times. I can't tell you how much they have helped us out, made us feel comfortable and over all made our honeymoon in Japan as exquisite and as much fun as possible. The pre-printed English to Japanese flyer was a multiple life saver. As a veteran and engineer I would recommend my friends to to experience the Oak hotel, as a new husband married to a lovely lady, we will lodge there the next time we are in Japan. We've been back for 2 days and we miss the Oak Hotel already.

If transportation gets you far, make sure that you are willing to walk back in case you get stuck in the middle of an earthquake.

Walking distance to awesome area of Ueno, much less pretentious than the rest of Tokyo! The hotel is very foreigner accommodating. Check out time at 10Am which is annoying, and hefty fees for using the hotel phone to make even local calls! Also, having to put a deposit on things like a power converter is pretty lame, but I suppose necessary. Bathroom was kind of small but nothing out of the ordinary.

Great little hotel

Well, going from US for the first time to Japan, everything seems tiny, so it wasn't a big shock (ok, it was somewhat) when we saw the room. Specially when you consider what you pay for it - we are used to getting a decent sized double queen/king room with breakfast in US for what we paid here. This was a Japanese style room, and we could barely move around, after juggling with our luggage, clothes, and each other! The location isn't too great either - it is a good walk from the JR Ueno station, which could seem much longer if you are tired from an international flight and are lugging your luggage. I would recommend taking the taxi. The hotel sign is quite small (it is on the pavement, I kept searching for it up top, and overshot it by a good 5-6 blocks) and is easy to miss. I would suggest printing a street-view map before going. What more than made up for all this was the great attitude of the staff! These people were super friendly. They right away invited us to a party going on in the hotel. After knowing that we were vegetarians, they went to great lengths to come up with veg food options. In all it was a great experience.

The room is very small but clean. The staff are generally friendly except 1 rude staff( guy with the think black rim glass) who is rude to most of the guest as we can tell.
