I stayed here on my first trip to Japan (in April), because nearly everything was booked out in Tokyo city itself. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just one stop from Ikebukuro station which makes it easy to get lots of the coolest places in Tokyo. The hotel provides a youtube link to show you how to get... More

We chose this ryokan based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Service is good and staff is very helpful. They even had a little gift for us when checking out - something we never experienced even at more expensive places. The room is basic (as you would expect from a Ryokan) and the mattresses (futons) slightly hard,... More

I was there with my family and 2 friends. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. Though the rooms were small, it was sufficient. We had a great experience there. The staff were so friendly and it's like a home away from home.

This little hotel is a great affordable place to stay in Tokyo. Everything was spotlessly clean, all the staff are very friendly and helpful (and speak English), and the neighbourhood is quiet. The hotel is located in Ikebukuro, which isn't central, but it is only a few minutes walk to either the subway or commuter train systems. There are restaurants,... More

Great, friendly service :) The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and the atmosphere really made me feel like I was part of a family. The inn is located in a quiet little neighbourhood, and I enjoyed watching people go about their daily activities. Really loved the 10 minute walk through the town to the station every morning. That said,... More

This was the fourth or fifth time I've stayed at the Family Inn. We love the cleanliness, the reasonable price relative to the amount of space, and most of all the lovely staff. We also like staying slightly outside the city centre, but knowing that it's only a five-minute 1000 yen cab ride or a one-station train ride away. On... More

We fell in love with this place from the first day. The staff are fantastic - very kind and helpful - they made us feel @ home immediately. The room was spotless and the futons very comfortable. The surrounding neighbourhood has this 'real Tokyo life' vibe about it. One can see how the locals go about their daily lives. It's... More

Great cozy inn with all the necessities. Staff is very helpful and offered us local weather Forecasts and umbrellas so we wouldn't get wet. It's a bit of a walk from the local train station (10-12mins) but a very pleasant one with little local shops and inner suburban houses along the way.

We stayed 3 nights there during the golden week period in Japan. It's a small nice and cozy family run hotel with great hospitality especially the host Hiroshima-San. He's really friendly, helpful and service minded. We found in some reviews that the place was a bit far from train/metro station but when we were familiar with the area, we felt... More

Family Inn Saiko is just that - a family inn. A traditional ryokan on the outer edge of Tokyo. The staff are warm and inviting and helped with dinner reservations and sight-seeing. The walk to the subway station is about 15 minutes through a cute neighborhood - it was nice in the morning, wished it was shorter in the evening.... More
