The staff at this place are just the best. Of course the rooms are also spotless and the location great: easy access to the station and in a cute neighbourhood. Mr Masa and Nicholas are heroes. We received such a warm welcome on a cold morning! And each of them went so far above and beyond to help us to... More

We chose the Family Inn based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and found the whole experience excellent. We were welcomed by a middle aged gent and he did his best with limited English to explain how things worked, reception opening times and standard rules e.g. not wearing shoes in the traditional rooms. He also gave us green tea while... More

I am so glad that through some magic of algorithms, tripadvisor sent me a rec for the Family Inn Saito - it was *exactly* what I wanted from our final six days of Japan. It's ten minute walk from the nearest train station through a neighbourhood, so not exactly central, and I had been worried that this would mean a... More

We stayed in Family Inn Saiko in September 2014, but still today is an enjoyable memory. The staff ( tthe family!) is helpful and easygoing, the location tidy and immaculately kept, the view and the basin empty of hot water at the last floor so relaxing. Prices very convenient, only a bit far from circular line of Tube

Most of our Japan trip was spent in Kyoto but the first and last days were spent in Tokyo. Had we known about this inn sooner I should have booked this for 2 nights instead of one. Nicholas was very helpful even before booking our reservations. Although the map may seem complex, it's actually pretty easy and close to the... More

A pearl located conveniently near Ikebukuro station (10 min walk and one station train or 15 min walk), one of the main transport hubs in Tokyo that will let you conveniently go to all major touristic places. The price is very reasonable compared to other hotels we were looking at. The guests are wonderful, speak english, have a lot of... More

I chose this hotel based on value for money and the excellent Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. I wanted to experience a traditional ryokan with the futon on the floor and sparsely furnished room and Family Inn Saiko was perfect for this. Before we had even arrived, we received an email enquiring about our itinerary. They followed up... More

We have stayed here for two nights and none of us can fault it! It is immaculately clean and beautiful. The staff are so friendly and helpful! The inconvenience that other people have talked about is that it is a little far away from any stations! This was one of our favorite parts!!! The ten minute walk from shinamachi is... More

Staff are good and helpful. The rooms and lobby area were clean. the room's wall is very thick that you can't hear anything from your neighbor. Love the place :) Location is a bit far from the station. It may take 15 minute to walk from the station (from Shiinamachi). It is ok when you are going out from the... More
