Score from 556 reviews Wonderful
Excellent staff - helpful and speak good English. Excellent location - places to eat, places to see, shopping close by and taxi/train only a short walk.
Standard rooms are a little cramped with 2 people and you will need to duck your head on some of the doorways if you are 6'+ (this is normal for Japan). Beds in the traditional Japanese style rooms can be a little uncomfortable if you are a big person - I got an extra mattress from the cupboard which did the trick.
The facilities like public bath and catered for three people is good.
- friendly and helpful staff - cozy onsen - excellent japanese breakfast - cleanliness - excellent housekeeping
- check-in and check-out times
Awesome location, fun to arrive in Tokyo to a buzzy touristy (in a good way) part of town, near to the sochi ji temple and market The cute rooms Great view of the temple from our room!
Nothing much Although there is a lot to do in Asakusa, it's a bit further away from Shinjuku area etc. but only 30 minute tube ride away roughly
It was the perfect retreat after a long day and a delicious and well-balanced Japanese breakfast to prepare me for another long workday
This Ryokan has a great Japanese bath on the top floor (short morning hours but longer afternoon). Unlike Ryokans in provinces, bathrooms in each room and tub. Nice breakfasts, very helpful service, convenient location near temples - nice value. It was a perfect place to start my Japan trip and explore the old district of Tokyo. There are other hipper districts and more modern hotels at competitive prices but if you want the feel of a Ryokan off the plane and an old district, I concluded this was and remains the best choice
The convenience of being so close to Nakamise Dori and all the shops and eateries in the area.
It was great sleeping on the floor but for our age; getting up and down off the floor was a bit taxing. AC is master controlled, be sure to ask to have room made cooler if you need to.
Great location, one of the best in Tokyo if you like the quieter and more traditional aspects of Tokyo life, very good women staff, friendly and helpful, great hot tub at the top.
Inconvenient to leave one's room for several hours each day to allow for cleaning, especially when the tiny downstairs lounge is full of luggage and it's raining heavily outside. The male manager (maybe owner) became angry and rude one morning for no apparent reason, but the young ladies were lovely and helpful.
near the temple and market and within walking distance (less than 10mins) to a direct train to Narita airport. On Ginza subway line, so direct, quick and frequent service into town. Room large enough with additional small hallway for luggage and clothes and own shower and toilet.
music played over speakers in the hallway which you could hear in the room. walls quite thin and a few noisy guests, though all quiet by 11pm.
Staff was extremely helpful and very kind. Public bath was small but comfortable. Wonderful location only steps from Senso-ji.
In room bathroom was a bit small, but the fact that there's an in room bathroom at all in a ryokan is commendable.
great location right next to Sensoji temple, lots of shops and restaurants and shops nearby, the public bath has gorgeous view of the tokyo skyline
The room was clean, the tatami was very traditional and the kimonos that were provided for sleeping were a fine addition to the overall traditional essence of the guest room.
The space provided for the luggage was very small and it was difficult to open any suitcase.
- Great location - Nice japanese rooms - View to the skytree from the public bath
Ideal location: close to the Asakusa station which provides direct trains to both international airport. Close to the two main touristic magnets of Asakusa, but in a quiet street anyway. Excellent japanese breakfast (go for it). And the Sento (japanish public bath) is simply a must.
Not easy to find if you don't know the region yet: Make sure to have a good plan before you start looking for it with your luggage. The air conditioner is centralized: you can only control the speed (low, medium, high), but not the temperature. Since you sleep just underneath the AC flow, it's not really ideal
Room décor, breakfast, ambient, location close to Asakusa temple
private bath was much hotter than the other onsen visited :)
This was our second stay here & nothing had diminished since the first time. The staff were as friendly & welcoming. The room had a wonderful traditional aesthetic, with the reassuring presence of western bathroom facilities. Seeing the Sensoji Temple & pagoda out of the window echoed the contrast between traditional Japan in the heart of a modern city. The experience of a relaxing soak in the Japanese bath house upstairs is not to be missed. A Japanese breakfast in the ground floor restaurant can round off a magical experience, though there is a western option as well.
Friendly staff, clean, great location, great public bath, everything!
Staff, living quarters, location, value excellent. Food good.
Location difficult to find since it is located within a maze of streets with stalls that all look the same. You can only see the sign for the location when your right next to it not if you're any distance away from it making locating the ryokan problematic. Possibly I'm location-challenged.
Staff, breakfast, room and location all excellent. Value for money very good at discounted price.
Internet was a bit iffy. Public bath was only lukewarm on one occasion
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 Ambient of the hotel was very unique and i recommend it to everyone that wants to try the traditional style of sleeping rooms in Japan. The Cleanliness of everything, includint the room and the common areas was perfect. Not a detail was wrongly placed. The Friendliness of the Staff applies to everyone we met on the travel but as our first stop it was a very nice and welcome first sign of the people there that everyone at the ryokan was very nice and eager to help us. The Location was perfect. Nicely located at five minutes from the biggest temple in tokyo and at 5 minutes from a JR station to everywhere else.
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
+ friendly staff, good basic english + authentic japanese-style rooms + onsen/bathhouse at the top floor with great view to Asakusa Skytree and pagoda of the Senso-ji temple + quiet area + location right next to Senso-ji temple + you can buy a japanese breakfast
- opening hours of the onsen are quite short - no accessible staircase (e.g. going from ground to 1st floor with elevator is pretty wasteful)
the quality of the setting the amazing fresh Japanese breakfast the kindness of the staff
The location is what makes this a beauty as well as the interior and lobby. The staff were overly friendly and super polite. As this was my first night in Asia, it was a really nice relief from other places I've stayed at. There is an elevator which you will bring your stuff up with. I stayed in the regular single room. The public bath at the top was very memorable and cozy!!! Don't miss it and I hope you had the place to myself like I did.
The bed could have been better in my opinion, the radio needed to be replaced since fm wasn't working, and there was no view (although I knew that going in with my particular room) but I did get to stare into the concrete side of the adjacent bulding! There is no check-in if you arrive in the middle of the night, so you'll be out of luck.
