japanese style room, tea available, lobby with karge tables in fact no
I chose Sakura Ryokan because I wanted to say in a place that is abit more local and quiet. Thats what I got. It is run by Suzuki san and his whole family stays there as well. It got this homely family feel which I like... and it is very near kappanbashi which is a whole street of kitchen tools items and frequented by the chefs.
Quiet place 24 hr reception Right next to Ginza line, 1 min walk Good building security Clean Great value for money Common room is a smoking room so for non smoking peeps, there is no place to hangout. even if you have an extended stay, you have to checkout daily at 10AM and recheckin at 2PM. No exceptions. Lockers are small and no security otherwise. So need to use lockers at 2nd floor which cost 300Yen.
CLOSE FROM METRO. I STAYED IN 5 HOTELS DURING MY 12 DAYS STAY ON A VACATION IN JAPAN. ALL EXCEPT YOKO WERE GOOD TO EXCELLENT. YOKO WAS BAD. THE ROOMS WERE UNCONFORTABLE AND EVEN A.C WAS NOT WORKING. ON ENQUIRING WITH THE STAFF I WAS TOLD TO OPEN THE WINDOW. SERVICE AND AMENITIES WERE BELOW STANDARD.
Amazing, clean hostel. Very comfortable feel, felt like home. Owner goes above and beyond to provide for the customers. She even provided us with cough medicine when we were coughing. I would absolutely stay here again. **Note: Check in time was 6 p.m., and check out time was 10 a.m. I had trouble connecting to the wifi with my tablet, but my boyfriend had no issue with his phone.**
excellent access to public transportation no closets to put away luggages
The fact that we were allow to put an extra bed in the room, we were a group of 3 and none of us wanted a room alone beds were on the hard side
Subway station was within three blocks from hotel. Hotel was in a quiet location. Bathroom was old and dingy.
This hotel is in a great location and was so easy to find! The directions on the website are exactly right (although you have to check for the Subway). We walked to the Government buildings and Shinjuku station with 2 young kids, so it would be really easy for others to do it. (The hotel is a great place to stay if you want to visit Shinjuku / Harajuku / Yoyogi / Shibuya areas.) The bathroom was huge (like the size of the room) and there were free refreshments in the "lobby". The staff were also very helpful!! There is a store 2 minutes away too! Our room was not exactly clean. We wanted to put the beds together but when we tried we had to move it back as it has obviously not been cleaned for a while. Someone else described the hotel as sketchy, and I think that sounds about right. It probably wouldn't have mattered if we were 20-something travellers, but with a family, we spent as little time as possible actually in the hotel room. (PS My husband got a peak of another room and said it looked better than ours, so it could be a little hit and miss.)
We had been given the Japanese Room which is quite spacious for 3 people in a room. That was an experience to remember. The lift was small. Only enough to fit 3 people with 3 luggages. Also, the room had a weird smell. But we got used to the smell after awhile.
Excellent bathroom with huge bubble bath and amenities; good bed
Very clean, the place looks great. Slept in bunks with privacy curtains, would recommend bringing earplugs tho if you are a light sleeper.
The location is near the subway station and several places to grab a quick bite. Really beads are comfortable, but you need to make the bed yourself (I think this this a Japanese custom, since the same applies to the other hostels I stayed at in Japan). The staff were all helpful and friendly.
Well situated close to the Naka Meguro station and at walking distance of Shibuya. The room was huge compared to the other rooms we stayed in Tokyo. There was even a sofa. Well equipped with a kitchen. The staff was really helpful. The breakfast was basic with only some coffee, yogurt and croissant, but it was included in the price, as well as some light dinner (tough available every day). We didn't try the hot bath and sauna as it was only for men!
Nice staff. Clean room. nothing spesial.
good homely and welcoming feel. nothing luxurious, but comfortable and clean. would stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to tokyo on a tighter budget. perfect location.
The hotel is situated 20 mins walking distance from Nakameguro metro station. You can also take a bus to Shibuya. The bus stop is a short walking distance from the hotel. Breakfast and light dinner is served. Free internet connection provided. It's situated in a quiet area and suitable for family with children. Grocery store is available nearby too.Our kids loved the hotel.
It had a very close general store with everything like a supermarket and department store combined, the train station was 5mins away to get you to Shibuya and there a quite a few restaurants locally to eat. Size of the bathroom was small, but for what you pay being a budget hotel I wouldn't complain though.
Quick and friendly service, clean room.
I liked it because it was so personal; it felt as if the room was my tiny (and I mean tiny) corner of japan. It had all I needed, and it was well within walking of train stations, food, and shopping. The room was very, very small. Barely room to walk between the bed and table. But I personally didn't need much, so it was fine for me, though surprising.
Close to Shinsuku. Internet OK. Japanese atmosphere....
The APA was a really nice hotel. The people there were friendly all the time and very helpful. There is an amazing Ramen bar across the street. It is pretty much in between two subway stations which was really nice. The room space was a little in the small side but what else should you expect from a Japanese room. The bed was amazing. There was more than enough room for my wife and I and I am 6 foot 5. When they make the beds every day they bring a bottle water as well. If you have a do not disturb sign up they will leave fresh towels and the water bottle in a laundry bag nicely by the door.
The rooms, although small, fulfilled out needs. The staff were friendly, spoke a useable amount of English, and kept our rooms very tidy. The location is amazing! It is a 2 minute walk to a 7 Eleven which is a great place to get a cheap breakfast, tasty coffee, and withdraw cash. It is a 4 minute walk to Keikyu Kamata train line. This line is roughly a 10 minute trip to Haneda Airport, and 30 minutes to Shinagawa station on the Yamanote line. This makes getting to various wards in Tokyo take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1hr. This isn't bad at all, especially if you take the trains during off peak hours. A cab from Shinjuku Golden Gai to Keikyu Kamata train station at 3AM is about $80, which isn't bad if you are used to big city prices like NYC, SF, Boston. If you are looking for late night partying, you should stay in a hotel closer to central Tokyo. However, if clubbing isn't your thing and you want to travel by subway, this hotel is perfect. My girlfriend and I mostly went on day trips to various Tokyo wards from 10am - 11PM. 13 hours is plenty of time to spend out an about. We had a great time at this hotel and world recommend to anyone.
