Small rooms, but everything works and is nice.Posted Feb 6, 2014
Great staff, in a wonderful location by the park. I would come back here to stay if I come to Japan again.

Too smallPosted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: The hotel staff was friendly and pleasant.
Location: Location is great - right off the shopping street and the Sensoji Temple. Very close to train station, which was very convenient to go visit Skytree.
We (2 adults, 1 teenager) were put in a room that had a sign showing (maximum occupancy 2). When we checked in, the futon beds were already spread out in the room, which left no room at all to walk, sit, or do anything. Our stay was far from comfortable because of the very small space, and air conditioning was very weak on a hot day (we were told not to adjust the temperature at all). This hotel might be ideal and interesting for foreign guests but, if you're looking for a little luxury and comfort, I don't recommend it.

Upmarket RyocanPosted Mar 11, 2013
Pros: Central to the main shrine yet very quiet. Very friendly staff.
Cons: No problems
Location: Wonderfully situated
A lovely little Ryocan. Very central yet quiet. Good facilities and very friendly staff. No dinner available when we stayed but excellent restaurants next door and opposite so no problem. Would definitely stay there again.

BewarePosted Oct 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Overall we were not happy although some aspects were good. We were put in a room without a shower or bath and told to use the communal bathroom where there is no privacy, no lock and you have to get into bath with others. Our room needed updating. Bathroom floor was crumbling away, panels were held up with sellotape and a nasty stain on wall. We complained and got a better room. We were not allowed in our room between 10.30 am and 3.00 pm which was inconvenient especially when suffering jet lag. The maid would knock on your door well before 10.30 to hurry you out. The Japanese breakfast was excellent at 1,300 yen. We were alarmed when we found we had been charged 25,200 yen for 12 breakfasts 2,100 yen each. We have since written to the hotel to explain this and they have just ignored our inquiry.

Close to Senso-ji, a major shrinePosted Aug 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Good location near shrine, Tokyo tower, metro, bridge over the river, and river boat connections; across the street from a nice japanese restaurant where they were used to accommodating visitors; very hospitable hosts, nice breakfast.

TokyoPosted Feb 20, 2012
Friendly little hotel, which was very close to all touristy sites. The room was very comfortable, with friendly staff to help us with all our questions. We were close to the train station Asakusa, only 3 minutes walk away. We tried both Japanese and Western breakfasts whilst we stayed there. Both were very nice, with plenty of food and choice.

authentic japanese experiencePosted Nov 7, 2011
I stayed in a traditional japanese style room, which is very sparse (futon and sitting area, very small bathroom), but a nice change (for me) and much more enjoyable than the very small western rooms I have stayed elsewhere in Tokyo. The location is excellent - the shopping of Nakamise Ave is right out your door; Sensoji temple a stones throw away, a short walk to the subway. The staff spoke english and were very helpful. Bathrooms are cramped and no full shower. But well worth the stay.
