Ryokan Nakadaya 2 stars

Taito, Tokyo

Situated in Tokyo, within 1.5 km of Sensoji Temple and 2.2 km of Tokyo Skytree, Ryokan Nakadaya offers accommodation with a shared lounge. The property is set 3.5 km from Edo Tokyo Museum, 6 km from Marunouchi Building and 6 km from Yasukuni Shrine. Free WiFi is available.

The units in the inn are equipped with a flat-screen TV. Each room is equipped with a shared bathroom. We spent 4 nights in Ryokan Nakadaya which was one of the best experiences we had in Tokyo. We arrived at the ryokan around 10pm with our hair and clothes slightly wet from a light rain. When the owner, Tatsuo san, entered the common room to greet us, he asked us in fluent English whether or not we felt cold. We were quite taken aback by his unexpected friendliness and attentive hospitality. Then, he introduced the neighborhood with his iPad and recommended great restaurants, cafes, temples and a traditional hot spring. He helped us set our futons, made a phone call to a place we wanted to visit, and even gave us informations for the best access to both airports as my family and I didn’t go to the same airport. To top it off, he translated our omikuji (fortunes we took from Fushimi Inari) which were written in Japanese as I told him I didn’t understand any of them. We were so touched by his generous assistance. He really is the best host anyone could ever ask for. The rooms are clean. They provide their guests with TV for each room, wifi and shared fridge. The location is approximately 10-minute walk away from Minami-Senju train station and there’s also a bus station very close to the ryokan which makes it very convenient to get around Tokyo. Moreover, he even sent us out after we check-out to the closest station with our huge luggage! I would totally recommend Ryokan Nakadaya to anyone who wants to stay in Tokyo to experience the real genuine Japanese experience here.

New Chiyoda 2 stars

Arakawa, Tokyo

Attractively located in the Arakawa district of Tokyo, New Chiyoda is located 700 metres from Susano Shrine, 700 metres from Arakawa Furusato Bunkakan and 1.2 km from Sekido Museum. The 2-star guest house has air-conditioned rooms with a shared bathroom and free WiFi. The property is non-smoking and is situated 700 metres from Jokanji Temple. Extremely clean and a pleasing, simple design that is nice to come home to. The shower and toilet rooms were also pristine and comfortable despite being shared. Though the area is a bit far from some of the major Tokyo neighborhoods, it's very close to the subway station (about 3 min walking), which is very nice. Check-in and check-out are also simple and can be done without staff available. My flight came in very late, and I was sent clear instructions to check myself in at around 3 am.
