Cheap, clean, but no frills

Posted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: Cheap, very clean, nice hotel staff, fairly close to subway, good breakfast, quiet neighborhood.
Cons: Thicker futon, improved AC, sound-absorbing wall covering in hallways to help absorb the sound of doors opening and closing, people on stairs.
Location: About 4 city blocks from subway station. Many restaurants 2 blocks away. Close to YMCA (in case you need to ask directions).
Not the Rizt Carlton, but cheap, clean, and nice hotel staff. Free japanese style breakfast a bonus. Shared bathrooms down the hall - not convienent for those middle of the night bathroom breaks. Rooms are very small. Visited in Sept (hot 92deg) and room AC was marginal to keep room cool. Set it to 65deg and it never got below 79 deg. No AC in hallways. Shared hallway Japanese style showers and bathtub (very clean!). Futon not very thick. Had to put additional comforters folded under it to get enough cusion to sleep. I think everything here is geared for Japanese business people visiting a few days on the cheap and not for senior Western vacationers. Everything was very clean and hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. No wifi but there was a wired internet drop in the room (but I don't know how well it works). All in all, very much like a college dorm or hostel experience. Ok for a couple of days, but I couldn't imagine staying here for a week. Perfect for young kids visiting Tokyo on the cheap. I'm a little older and expect more.

Friendly comfort in downtown Tokyo near YMCA

Posted Jun 28, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff - owned by nice family Fairly easy to locate Clean room
Cons: Maybe providing more ryokan info online
Location: The ryokan is at Yotsuya JR station as is only a hop (160 ¥) away from Tokyo station.
When I first arrived at Ryokan Eishinkan, I had a bucket list of questions about where to eat and shop. Tomo showed me the room and was more than happy to andswer my many questions. In particular, I forgot a power adapter for my laptop. He gave me directions on how to get to a close-by electronics shop (including advice on which subway to take). After checkout, they let me leave my bags at the ryokan while I went sightseeing and looking for an adapter. If they had not helped me, I am certain that I would have also gotten lost on my trip to my next destination. I would like to have stayed longer, by I already had plans to leave Tokyo. My only recommendation is that you look on maps for the YMCA almost next door to the Ryokan. It will save you time and effort when you're trying to find the hotel.

Great spot well located

Posted May 10, 2013
Pros: Very well located. Owner spoke English. Helped me book tickets for sumo.
Cons: Nothing really.
Location: Yotsuya station. It is not a scenic area but near great sites. In between Shinjuku and Tokyo metro. Close to the action yet quiet at night.
The owner spoke English and was very helpful. The room was very clean and breakfast was very good. It is a family owned place and everyone was helpful. The place is also very well located. It is at Yotsuya station where one can access subway (Marunouchi & Namboku lines) and JR train (Chuo rapid & local lines). The area is quiet at night. There is a retaurant alley two blocks from the hotel.

A budget gem

Posted Nov 23, 2012
As budget accommodation, what more could you ask for? Clean, safe, warm and welcoming, all at a great price and only five minutes walk from the subway too. Yes, if you want an en-suite or private bathroom then this isn't for you. And if you want a conventional bed, rather than a mattress on the floor, then this isn't for you either. But otherwise, if you want bed and breakfast accommodation near the tube and even nearer to a convenience store, where you are welcomed with a cup of green tea, for barely any more than a decent capsule hotel then maybe this is for you. Oh, and did I mention the free Wi-Fi?

Quiet, yet central

Posted Nov 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
Yotsuya is a great place to stay, very convenient with both train and metro, and walking distance to Shinjuku. At this ryokan it is so quiet that you won't believe you are in the middle of Tokyo. I had a Japanese room. Nice futon, room was quite standard and quite small but OK. Yukata was provided. The bathrooms are also small, I would actually recommend going to the local sento 5 min away by foot. Truly delightful bathing! Staff is kind and helpful. But if this is your first time in Japan, you should probably prepare/research a little. Think more "shared house", less "hotel" Best of luck with your Japan trip!

Convenient for Tokyo sightseeing

Posted Oct 6, 2012
Very friendly hosts who speak English and were very helpful. Location is half way between Shinjuku and Tokyo central and a couple of minutes walk from Yotsuya Station. Lots of restaurants nearby. Downside was the roomsize and check you have ensuite first! LAN internet in the rooms.
