The Centurion Hotel group has four hotels, all in Tokyo. The Centurion Hotel in Tokyo's Ueno district re-opened on February 11, 2014 after extensive refurbishment, to become one of the Ueno area's most stylish and affordable hotels. (The Centurion Hotel Ueno is on the site of what used to be known as Hotel Pine Hill Ueno.)
The Centurion Hotel Ueno - a self-style "designer hotel" - is a striking presence in Ueno, unmissable with its massive billboard on top. Inside, the Centurion Hotel Ueno aims for rich - albeit somewhat restrained - elegance, in subdued golden brown tones with simple lines, and black and silver highlights. The Centurion Hotel Ueno appeal is of good taste relaxation and comfort, based on the concept of "your urban home."
The Centurion Hotel Ueno offers four kinds of room, all reasonably priced:
Single Room, semi-double bed, 2 persons, 11 sq.m.+
Double Room (Standard and Superior), 2 persons, double/queen-size bed, 12 sq.m.+
Twin Room (Family and Standard), 2 persons, semi-double twin beds, 15 sq.m.+
Suite Room, 4 persons, with separate bathroom and toilet, semi-double twin beds, 42 sq.m.
