We are looking for a hotel near subway/train for easy transportation around Tokyo. Ueno and Asakusa seem like good areas. Budget up to $350 ish. Our first time to Japan so all ideas welcome.
We really liked Red Planet Asakusa, last year. Very nice people, excellent location and 3 mins walk from Ginza metro line at Tawaramachi
I particularly like Asakusa Hotel Hatago which is very close to Asakusa station (2 minutes walk from an Asakusa line entrance, 4 minutes from a Ginza line entrance).
There are many hotels in the area, including Hotel Richmond Asakusa.
