This ryokan is a peaceful spot just off the Nakamise Dori, so very convenient for everything in Asakusa. This time, we had two single rooms - my friend had the slightly larger one (I think the room numbers that end 07 will all the same). The single rooms are on the back of the building, so very quiet.
The single rooms are a little dark at certain times of day, as they are at the back of the ryokan, but since you won't be spending all day in your room, it doesn't matter.
The best of this Ryokan is its location, in the center of Asakusa, a very good area for tourism in Tokyo
We were three in a room clearly for two. Very expensive for such a small space. Compare to a real Ryokan we stayed before in Kyoto, this is far from it. No space for bags. The room had a small table in the closet but there was no space in the room to use it. Wifi signal was very poor
The location is good.
right in the heart of Asakusa... doesn't get much better! amazing breakfast too, friendly staff... !
Location very handy very close to Asakusa station and Sensoji Temple with interesting shops and many local restaurants. We got very good internet room rate which made the ryokan very good value. Listed rates though are significantly higher. Staff speak reasonable English and very keen to help. Japanese breakfast was very good.
Only one criticism - the public bath on the top floor was lukewarm at best. Not the hot soothing of aching muscles I needed after a weekend of hard training. Small niggle - internet was pretty slow, but at least it was available and free.
The air conditioning was great to have, as we had all hot days during our trip. Wifi was also good since we could communicate back home easily. The location was great, and we enjoyed the shops and sights around the hotel. Transportation to and from the Airport with the Asakusa Station being not too far from the hotel (the Kisei Skyline was the best option). The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to get the hotel breakfast when we wanted (the Japanese style breakfast was great, and really interesting to try) and we were able to refuse room cleaning when we needed to be in the hotel room during cleaning time, and still get clean towels.
The rooms were small and sleeping on the futons on the floor does take some getting used to (although they have options for western rooms if you don't think you're up for the Japanese style rooms.) We were only given one key even though we had a 3 person room, it would have been good to have one more so that we could slip up easer (my wife and myself with one key, and my friend with the other) without worrying about getting back into our room.
A very nice room japanese style and good location.
We had a very bad experience with the old man hotel owner or staff (I dont' know) that it seems to be very often as I can read in others travellers opinions. We had no air conditionnig in the room, non sleeping night with more than 35 degrees and with 2 years old kid and a very rude staff attention. We arrived at the hotel at 19:00 and the room service was perfect and a young lady came to show us the room. We found it very hot and before leaving to have dinner outside we mentionned it to the same lady in the hotel reception. She kindly told us she will put on the air conditionning with an air control she had behind her desk. We thought that after dinner the room would be refreshed but when we arrived the room still being impossible to be inside. Imagine a japanesse style room, evereything covered in wood and wicker carpets and at 35º degrees. My husband complained for the 2º time to an old man in the frontdesk by that hour. He unwillingly touched again the temperature control downstaires behind the desk, he told him with unpleasant manners that it was a deshumidifier and not an air conditionned and ask him to wait for some minutes. But the room was a sauna! The air still no working all and for the 3d time we came down to complain and ask to a room change because we have a 2 years kid and it was impossible to sleep in that room. The 3 of us were hardly sweeting in the room. It was fresher in the corridor than inside the room.The old man was really rude, yelling at us that we had to wait to refresh (we had wait for more than 5h !) He came upstairs to the room with a chair and he could check that the room was very hot and the air was not working but he headstrongly told us that the air was working and we had to wait. He was really really rude and start yelling to me because I was holding my baby in my arms and by that time I forgot to take off his kid shoes in the room.
Atmosphere was great. We enjoyed everything and especially the young lady in Reception Office was very helpful, friendly and professional. The breakfast (both Japanese and Western) were excellent and very well presented. The location was fantastic, strolling around this older part of Tokyo really made our Japanese Experience a thrill! I would recommend friends and others to stay there.
Some furniture in room was dated.
We liked everything - staff, room, location, breakfast - about Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu.
The public baths on the 6th floor were tiny and would be problematic if lots of folks used them. I used them first thing in the morning and fortunately for me there were no other folks using them at this time.
Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu is a traditional hotel with a comfortable bed, free wifi, and a clean hot tub for my evening bath. It was the perfect place for me to stay for my four-day visit to Tokyo.
We love the location of this Ryokan plus the very confort and clean room. The staffs are very helpful , we forgot the wallet in the lobby on the departure day. They mailed it back to Thailand for us ! Next time we will definitely stay here.
Loved the staff. Very helpful with enquiries and very pleasant.
I know it was a very hot time in Tokyo but the air conditioning could have been set to a cooler temperature.
Traditional Japanese feel. Excellent staff (always there to help and spoke pretty good English).
Public bath on top floor
We loved the location. Having the Temple, subway, and great restaurants practically at your doorstep was wonderful and most convenient. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The Japanese breakfast was very good. The robes and slippers are a nice touch. This was a very nice experience for my family.
Perhaps better directions for finding the Ryokan. The pin point on the map doesn't quite do it. Some detailed photos perhaps showing the way from the subway? The sun rises very early in the summer, so we found ourselves waking up about 4:30 every morning. Some blackout shades or curtains to pull over the windows would be nice. A luggage rack would help as well, as the rooms are very small, and there is no where to really unpack.
Authentic Japanese experience, wonderfully located next to oldest shrine in Tokyo, great for access from Narita and Nikko, and quiet, clean and comfortable. Excellent Japanese breakfast experience.
Lack of English speaking staff (aren't I arrogant?!), but we muddled through with smiles!
Good location, easy access from station, staff very helpful, room large and comfortable, breakfasts and dinners superb.
Delightful neighbourhood with very good connections to city centre and beyond (e.g., Nikko) from Asakusa stations. Staff very helpful, room quiet and comfortable, good breakfasts. A terrific introduction to the world of the ryokan.
The staff was helpful, friendly, and able to offer good advice on restaurants and train timing. The overall ambience of the place is very appealing. The location is excellent, both for the surrounding Asakusa neighborhood, and for the transport access to the rest of Tokyo and Yokohama.
The triple room was pretty cramped for an adult and two teenagers, since the 3 futons took up nearly all of the floor space, and there was barely enough room to leave 3 pairs of shoes in the entryway while still being able to open and close the room door.
Location is perfect. Access to transportation. Ryokan facilities. Valued breakfast. Wifi coverage.
Excellent location! Polite and great staff.
We recently booked three rooms of this hotel for for our family and visiting relatives. At the time of check in, the boss or manager of the ryokan barked orders in Japanese to move out of the way and literally pushed aside all our members of our family to check another japanese person into the hotel since the front desk area was very tight. But it was his mannerism to yell at our family members that was very hostile and seemed almost to us a strong dislike of foreigners. He kept up this mannerism the entire half hour that was had to wait to get our tour booked. What we don't understand is how someone in the hospitality business can display such lack of manners and show such hostility and aggression towards paying guests. It was very uncomfortable and we could not recommend this place because of this older male boss that literally pushes his foreign guests out of the way while he makes his way around. There is no show of hospitality here.
Excellent location, nice onsen,very nice and courteous staff,delicious japanese breakfast
A bit hard to find, but as it was our first day in Japan, we were not used to the different address system.
Room is small, door closed if check in too late.
