Booking was easy via the web and no booking fee required. Being our first visit to Japan, the hotel was easy to find with the map provided in the website. The room was naturally small but the toilets were easily accessible. Facility at the common kitchen was superb with green tea and hot/cold water dispenser , microwave oven etc. The... More

I spent one week in kimi ryokan in march, and I really liked the place and the staff. The staff speaks english and is always helpful. The room was a bit cold because the cold air from outside came in through the window even if it was closed, but there was climatisation so I could make it warm in a... More

Make friend easily in the lobby. Even the founder of the Ryokan is very nice. I think everything is good except the room is a bit small. But... More

The staff are very helpful. Just a few minutes away from Ikebukoro station which made it very convenient. Its good for just sleeping in. The rooms are clean but small. Ok for budget travellers. The facilities are shared but kept clean.

we loved staying at Kimi for our first three nights in tokyo. we wanted something traditional but functional and close to the JR as well, and this was perfect. Ikebukuro is pretty quiet and fairly safe a location, and close enough to the rest of tokyo for it to be worth the stay, and the ryokan is really close to... More

Really loved everything about this place from the second we arrived! The decor is beautifully Japanese and very homey. The rooms are traditional with rice tatami mats and obviously quite small but we didn't mind. Each floor has multiple toliets and showers which were ALWAYS incredibly clean and a pleasure to use. Toliets are modern Japanese with all the cool... More

A great accommodation option in Tokyo with plenty of charm. The rooms are small, but clean and the bathroom/toilet options are great. The location worked well for us, very quiet, never any noise from the street or other guests. Staff were really friendly and helpful. A great place to stay for our first few nights in Japan, I would stay... More

Stayed in November 2013 for 6 nights This Ryoken was an excellent place to stay. The location to Ikebukuro station was less than 10 Minutes walk which gives you great access for transport around Tokyo. Also is is a small walk to some resturants and bars if you dont want to venture too far. The staff were very friendly and... More

I will try to make this simple. Like = Clean, reasonable sized room (by Japanese hotel standard), awesome toilet and bath, very cool ambience and style of ryokan, the bath is pretty good in the winter, has a cute receptionist that will randomly greet "okaerinasai" to people returning to the ryokan.......really take the tiredness away after a long day battling...

Our family of four just had 4 nights at the ryokan and really enjoyed the experience. We had two 6 mat rooms which were a good size for 2 people in each. Any more in that size room would feel pretty crowded for more than a night, with luggage. Sleeping on the tatami mats with the bedding is not as... More
