We really appreciated how close it was to trains and facilities and the markets.
This place was awesome. The staff if very friendly and more than willing to help. They help directions or picking out a good place to eat. The location couldn't be better. Right by the Senso-ji Temple and a subway station. definitely would go back
There wasn't anything unpleasant
You may find cheaper accommodation in Tokyo but the traditional, peaceful atmosphere of the Ryokan, the service, and the great location so close to the temple and surrounding old style streets was perfect.
Can't beat the location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They were very attentive to our needs.
Small room. However, that's part of the experience of travelling outside the U.S. You just roll with it.
Breakfast and Japanese harpist
Lovely staff, nothing was too much trouble. Spoke quite good Englis which is a bonus.
To be honest I thought the bedding should be cleaned a little more.... did seem a little soiled.
All of facilities and staff(except master) were nice for us to stay. Especially, public bath at 6th floor was a good idea for travelers who were totally exhausted from the trip. I suggest this ryokan to those who want experience traditional japan style with inexpensive budget.
Maybe master of this ryokan was brusque with his manner and tone of voice. Looks like over 70 years old though, his attitude should be changed.
The main thing I like about Ryokan Shigetsu is the atmosphere of being a little haven of peace and tranquility in a very busy city, right next to the hustle and bustle of the Nakamise-dori and Sensoji, but feeling calm and quiet. The staff are very helpful, especially about the number of parcels and suitcases we had going to and fro by takkyubin. The rooms are lovely and not overpriced for what you get - this time, we booked two singles and one of them was larger than a small double I've stayed in at another hotel in Tokyo. I tried the top floor bath for the first time too and I'll be there every night next time I visit. Now planning to stay on my next trip once again.
This was the first time I've stayed in winter and I found the heating a little tricky to control at first, but once I'd figured it out (via the aircon unit), it was fine.
Very nice, simple authentic Japanese room. Excellent included breakfast
Quite difficult to find as streets are narrow and street names are in Japanese
Staff speak good English
The staffs are very helpful and the hotel located near to one the main attractions in tokyo. The metro station is 5 minutes away from the Ryokan.
Nearness to temple and to Nikko line cannot be bettered. So many restaurants and cafes nearby as well as the Matsuya Dept store.
The gentleman at the desk was rather grumpy.
Perfect place for a real japanese experience. Really good japanese breakfast.
Located right in the action of Adakusa near Senso-ji. The female staff are gorgeous and speak good English. The breakfast is a treat. The Onsen is a bonus but quite small. Wifi worked perfectly.
Well, as you've all heard, the old guy is a bit of an obstacle. I wrote ahead to warn we couldn't check in until 10pm but he was still quite rude. Make sure you ask for the after hours pin code! He told us we had to be in by 11pm or would be locked out.
The Japanese breakfast is very Oishi! N the staffs are very friendly n helpful!
really great location, lots of restaurants and local snack shops around.
Terrible staff, the old man is the worst staff Ive ever seen, unfriendly the whole time, he did not even let us control the air conditioner. The air conditioner went off in the midnight at around 4am, and the bedroom light went on but we couldn't turn it off. Worst hotel I've ever seen.
I didn't quite realize at the time of booking, but the proximity of the ryokan to the Asakusa markets were excellent. Immediately outside is a large bazaar that lead up to the Sensoji temple, which I am told is the largest in Tokyo. During the new years many Japanese people tend to make their way there to pray - which means it can be seriously packed and full of people! But nevertheless the ryokan tends to be quiet and you don't really hear the noise that usually comes with crowds. Furthermore the breakfasts that they served were excellent, and the staff spoke great English when my fledgling Japanese couldn't keep up.
The double rooms were a little small, especially for two. With two futon beds down, we didn't really have the space to move around.
Clearly aimed at Westerners, bad smell in the bathroom, very small room
during the day, the service was very very nice, and welcome with kindness!
the bathroom compare to other hotel room in Tokyo was not good at all, and during the night there is old man who can not give much kindness to gest at all. concerning the price, it is not competitive at all
We spent 6 nights here and the location couldn't have been better , right next to Senso-Ji temple for New Years Eve. Would def stay here again. Loved the Onsen.
Yes it's a tight fit for 3 in a Japanese room, but that's authentic eh! Wi-fi can be a bit off and on, but we managed.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The public baths switched between women and men every other night so everyone could enjoy the magnificent view from the larger bath. The location is superb - on a quiet side street within easy walking distance of Asakusa Station.
The bathroom was small and outdated. Also, this was the first ryokan we stayed in which did not include breakfast.
Japanese breakfast was absolutely delicious and staff were helpful with instruction on how to eat it. Location was superb.
Be warned...the shared bath switches gender between the morning and afternoon sessions, make sure you check the flags each time.
Good location, friendly staffs and most important comfort & clean room.
The wifi at 3F is not that strong.
The room was beautiful, though very small, like many Japanese hotel rooms. The futons were a little hard. They were very happy to provide another layer of futons which really helped. The people who worked there could not have been more helpful. The soaking tub was a delight. Perfect location.
