Chikako's place exceeded our expectations! If you are thinking about booking this, just do it. 🙂 After a day of venturing and exploring around Tokyo, we always looked forward to returning back to the Ueno home to recharge.
You have many great transportation options from this place. From Narita airport, it's a very quick ride to the Ueno station via the Keisei Skyliner. Within Tokyo, you have easy access to both JR lines and the subway. As other travelers have noted, the place is extremely quiet, even though it's easily accessible. You also have great rental car options near the place as well.
Additionally, there are many convenient stores nearby, making it easy to pick up breakfast or a snack. It's also a nice walk to Asakusa and the Tokyo Sky Tree area.
This place is immaculately kept. It's spotlessly cleaned and offers a lot of space and privacy that other listings do not. There are 4 different rooms and 3 separate bathrooms, making it easy for large groups to share the space without having to jam 3 beds into a single open room. The place comes with laundry, as well as a very nice shower and bath. Lots of utensils and dinnerware to choose from.
This is where Chikako and her team exemplifies what it means to be a Superhost. They were extremely responsive and tried their best to accommodate our needs. Communications were clear, and the check-in and check-out process were extremely easy.
We definitely felt like we got more value out of this booking than other listings we looked into. We will definitely stay at any of Chikako's properties in the future!
