We love staying at Homeikan Ryokan in the university district of Tokyo. It is located near enough to the metro lines to be convenient, in a non-touristy part of town which means it's quiet and peaceful. This ryokan is spread out over three different buildings in the same neighbourhood, we usually stay in the Daimachi Bekkan building. Very traditional style,... More

Me and my friend had a great stay at Homeikan. The staff were more than friendly and during our stay this was one of the highlights of our trip. Homeikan is old, but in a good way. The room we stayed was like in the movies and the public bath couldn’t get any better after a busy day. So if... More

We booked 4 nights and after the first night we cancelled. The shared bathroom is very small, that small that you can't sit down on the toilet. At 7 o'clock in the morning kids were running around. It seems that they have two buildings, maybe we stayed in the old one. A mid-class hotel in Tokyo is much more comfortable... More

This ryokan was generally clean and staff polite and helpful. While the service was spot on, our room was a different matter. For the price we paid for and the experience we expected at a ryokan, Homeikan missed the mark. We were placed in a building that seemed to be a later addition to the traditional ryokan - this building... More

I was to happy to stay there my first 2 nights in Tokyo. The lady at the reception was so kind all the time, she even gave us an umbrella when we left because it was raining too much. It's a great experience, be sure you go to this place if you're in Tokyo.

I stayed at the Morikawa Homeikan (there are three, all quite close together) in September for 3 nights, and it was great. They bring the breakfast to your room, the breakfast was really good, and quite large. The wi-fi was hit and miss in my room, but it worked in the lobby. For a cheap(ish) place to stay, I really...

Arrived late at night to be greeted by a grumpy little woman. we were led to our rooms which were so basic that there wasn't even a chair to sit on., Just futons on the floor (and thin ones) The toilet was down the hall and was so small that you couldn't shut the door whilst seated. The shared bathroom... More

It's a rather large hotel spread over two floors. The rooms are nice, traditional japanese with tatami mattes on the floor and a futon to sleep on. (you can lock your door here – which is not always the case in ryokans). The staff is nice. The only letdown were the bathing and specially toilet facilities. There are two bathrooms... More

As you go up the hill you will start to be a witness of the balance of the green and walking back in time. Big walls, the green of nature, and the smell of old traditional wood. Its like going back in time. From the moment you walk in you would be encouraged to let go your shoes and connect... More

Stayed one night in September. The building is large and sprawling and upon entering you immediately feel like you are in a traditional Japanese Inn with the smell of incense in the air. Beautifully appointed with polished wood posts and frames with rice paper walls. Our room was spacious. The sento was a good size and very clean and bright.... More
