Guest House Wagokoro 3 stars

Arakawa, Tokyo

Open from August 2017, Guest House Wagokoro offers a modern Japanese-style accommodation an 8-minute stroll away from JR Nippori Station. Each room comes with an en suite bathroom and toilet and a female dormitory room is featured on site. This hotel was perfect! The staff were beyond friendly - they were insistent that we took umbrellas for the rainy day even though we wouldn't be returning as we were checking out. The rooms were lovely (very ryokan!). We only stayed for a couple of nights but I would have loved to stay longer. When we arrived we were even given a choice of rooms to suit our needs. I'd gladly stay here again!

Port House Shibuya 2 stars

Shibuya Ward, Tokyo

Open from August 2018, Port house Shibuya is located a minute's walk from Hatagaya Station.

All rooms feature a private bathroom and Simmons mattresses.

There is a shared living room and Port house Shibuya features a terrace. The owner (near native english speaking) was the most helpful host you can imagine, takes his time for any guest to meet in person and give advice on how to make the best out of your stay in Tokyo. Let us check in early. The place is spotlessly clean, close to the metro, convenience stores, restaurants etc. Highly recommended in every aspect!

The guest house also offers free use of bicycles. Yokohama is 37 km from Mokkoan, while Chiba is 41 km away. The nearest airport is Tokyo Haneda International Airport, 24 km from Mokkoan. Peaceful retreat in the bustling city. Beautiful and serene house with an authentic Japanese garden. Very kind and friendly couple that runs this place. Easy to communicate with, and always there to help you. Breakfast in the mornings are a great opportunity to chat with the hosts and other guests. Breakfasts are cooked just to your order, and large, and very tasty - especially those homemade jams! Also the place is extremely clean and has everything you need. I stayed for 4 nights in a very spacious Japanese style room, and it was wonderful. Cannot recommend Mokkoan enough! Looking forward to staying here on my next trip to Tokyo - many thanks to Yasuhiko-san and Chieko-san - Domo arigato from Marina!
