We stayed here for our first night in Tokyo then returned again for a 2 night stay after one week. The Ikebukuro area itself is a bit off the main attractions such as Shibuya, Asakusa, Ginza or Shinjuku but the commute is not too bad. The inn is around a 5-min walk to the Ikebukuro train station and is quite... More

It was our first time to Japan and since we have heard from our friends staying in Kimi, was looking forward to it as it was a real bargain considering staying around ikebukuro area. We noticed a lot of foreigners staying here. The receptionist was all very friendly and speak english well. The room was a bit tiny but well,... More

We stayed for a week in sweltering August. The hotel was nice, people were helpful and pleasant, and good generally speak enough English for me to get by, which was helpful for American idiots like myself. They were very helpful with suggestion for how to get around.

First came here in 1988 with my wife and 2-year old son when we moved to Japan looking for an English teaching job. We ended up living in Tokyo for 8 years. After I left in '96 I started coming back every couple of years and always stay at Kimi. Over the years the clientele has changed - in the... More

We went to Tokyo as our college graduation gift for our son. We opted to stay at Kimi Ryokan instead of a hotel in order to experience the traditional Japanese Inn. After 2 weeks, I will give the place a 5-Star rating for its location, cleanliness, and superior quality of service. No need to bring your laptop computer because there... More

This is a great base for Tokyo travels. Towel included, nice seating area on the roof, secure, wifi throughout and plenty of toilets and showers so never waiting. In both 2 and 3 person room with friends. Great space and ideal if you're out in the day and need comfort and peace for your sleeps. Recommended

Lovely old ryokan, right near Ikebukuro station which is on the main JR line to Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibya etc. Very clean, small rooms. The staff were really nice but gave us some bad advice on a few occasions (Booked us a tea ceremony in Uji, but when we arrived it was for the wrong day, so that wasted a lot... More
