SAKURA Economy Japanese Style Twin Room - Non-Smoking

Great way to experience a ryokan if you prefer private bath”

Excellent location within the Asakusa district - less than 5 minutes walk from metro station, Senso-ji Temple, shops, and restaurants. We stayed in a Japanese style room with the tatami mats and futons. Room was clean and futons were comfortable. Green tea (with accompanying mugs) and sweet rice puff treats were provided, which was nice. Hotel also provided yukatas and slippers that can be worn around the hotel, including in the breakfast room. Japanese breakfast was delicious. If you decide to stay here I recommend you order it at least once. The staff, though their English was limited, was nice and helpful. The lady with the glasses was sweet. They provided plenty of resources for tourists. The rooms all have a private toilet and bath (private bathroom is small). If you do want to experience the traditional shared ofuro, the hotel has an area where you can shower yourself off and relax in the bath. I recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay here again.

Perfect for a long layover”

Had a lovely stay, my first at a ryokan. Location is awesome (4 minute walk to Asakusa station, Senso-Ji within sight, right off the market). Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, explaining everything about the ryokan, from how to wear a yukata to bath etiquette. This was my first time staying in a traditional Japanese room, and the staff completely put me at ease, encouraging me to try new things. The facilities are spare but have all the essentials and nothing you don't need. The simplicity of the room actually made it feel larger and more peaceful. The baths were relaxing, and there is a lot to do in the area, and even at night. Highly recommend for a long layover if you want to see a slice of Tokyo and traditional Japanese living.

A super great stay in ryokan at the old quarter of Tokyo!”

If you seek a ryokan with a reasonable price where you can experience a Futon bed, tatami floor, ensuite bathroom and onsen with a view of Tokyo Skytree, This is a place you can not missed!!! Staffs are all nice and can communicate in English (atleast some basic words) but I met Ms. Hirao who is a front officer and she was a helpful, nice person to me and she also gave me many information about nearby interesting places in Asakusa area. I will come to stay in this ryokan again for sure!!!

Excellent Ryokan Close to Senso-ji”

After experiencing a 5.3 magnitude earthquake at this Ryokan, I can say it safes........ha ha!! An excellent location only one minute walk to Senso-ji Temple, fabulous shopping, a short Rickshaw ride to Sky-tree, and 200m to the train station. The traditional rooms have tatami maps and sleeping on the floor is very comfortable. Amenities such as S&C, hair dryer, toothbrush & paste, hair brush and coffee/tea are all provided. Staff are extremely helpful and so polite, which is so refreshing. If you are looking for a Western experience do not book this property, however if you want to experience a traditional Japanese Ryokan, close to fabulous attractions and experience sleeping on Tatami maps this place is perfect.

Royakan gem in the heart of Asakusa”

Beautiful, spotlessly clean and friendly ryokan five minutes from the train station and literally steps from the temple and market. There are male and female onsens on the top floor that look out at the sky tree or temple (access for men and women swap at different times to alllow everyone to experience both). Unfortunately all the Japanese style rooms were taken when I stayed there, but the western style room had everything that I could have wanted. The room (306) was a bit dark, as it backs straight onto neighbouring buildings, but the windows did open, which is always a plus for me. The staff were SO friendly and helpful, adding to what was already a great experience. I definitely recommend that you stay here.

Super location and more than helpful staff. ”

We stayed 3 nights at Ryokan Asakusa. We arrived very late at night but got access. The futons were surprisingly comfortable and nice shower- also it is very quiet and peaceful in the ryokan. When you step outside you are in a lovely neighbourhood area. We didn’t try breakfast so can’t comment. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Pure Zen”

I love this ryokan! Not your typical meal served in the room, however, nice little onsen and tatami rooms. You feel like you're in a different world, certainly not steps away from Nakamise Dori. I always get a good night's sleep here, my second visit. The staff are all very accommodating, well, the ones I dealt with. They could speak English and were very helpful with directions and tips. No bidet in the room bathrooms. But there is one in the lobby bathroom. Japanese breakfast was yummy, simple yet satisfying. Planning on going back next year!

I came around 9 PM so maybe he wasn’t too happy about that, but (I think) the owner, an older man, wasn’t very welcoming and just wanted to watch his TV show. For example, he made me come back downstairs to find out the WiFi password and quickly said they couldn’t take my baggage to the airport although it was advertized in the elevator. Asakusa is right near a really historical temple and right near the subway to both airports, but I think it’s a bit far away from everything else. The traditional Japanese breakfast was lovely.

Very good”

Great way to experience a ryokan - loved the floor mats and the futon beds. Bare in mind this is no where to go if you're looking for luxury. The hotel is a little bit run down. However as our group was looking for an old-school ryokan experience, this did satisfy our objectives. The ryokan is located right next to Sensoji temple and its surrounding markets - very close to train lines, surrounding by numerous restaurants. We wanted to experience a traditional dinner, however this was not a service they provided. Breakfast can be bought, however due to leaving early from our one night stay, we did not have a chance to experience it. Another great thing about the ryokan was the onsen - great little place to sit in at dusk with the night view. The onsen is not big, but if you're looking for a private onsen experience with either a small group, or as an individual, this is pretty satisfactory. All-in-all, would recommend for the ryokan experience.
