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

We had a great stay at Kimi - the room was small (it's Tokyo!), but had a lot of storage space, so our suitcases weren't in the way. The staff was incredibly helpful - they gave us restaurant recommendations and helped us find a doctor when my son hurt his neck. Overall a great place to stay - and so... More

Booked here after reading reviews on tripadvisor and Lonely Planet. This was our first time at a Ryokan and it was superior to the hotels that cost double the price in Shinjuku. There is plenty of space (for Tokyo) in the rooms, the staff were very welcoming and friendly, they spoke English and Japanese and the common areas, (kitchen and... More

I am so, so glad I ignored my friends' hotel recommendations and took a chance and stayed @ the Kimi Ryokan! I arrived to the hotel around 10:00pm from Narita, jetlagged and exhausted. The staff (who spoke excellent English) met me at the door, were incredibly polite and friendly and showed me to my room. They even took the time... More

This was my first Ryokan experience and it was the best. The staff went above and beyond, and were always welcoming. The common area always had calming energy and warmth. The rooms were always cleaned and the sharing of bathroom was never an issue. We only planned to stay 7 nights but ended up booking for the remainder of the... More

I booked for KR after reading the reviews of it. And I also wanted to be staying somewhere close to the JR and the city center of Tokyo. Although it's price is slightly higher than a dorm hostel, it's really worth it. Because, you get your own private room! The environment is also very clean and comfortable. The staff that... More

This is my second time stay at this ryokan. The reason i repeat this ryokan is the ryokan itself very clean and worth to pay. The location also good and familiar for me. Go anywhere is convenience , the staff still nice as always

My husband and i stayed at Kimi Ryokan for 12 days in May and it was a wonderful experience. At first we were rather apprehensive since the bathrooms were shared but it was no problem at all! Everything was so clean! And there was never a time we had to wait for a space at the sink or shower. The... More
