    Goup or 3 friends. We spent 18 days travelling in Japan, and this was one of the better places. They allowed us to keep our one extra big bag there while we toured on trains. This alone was a super plus factor. I did email them about it before we got there. A very good place for families and small... More

    It can be tough to find good budget accommodation in Tokyo but this place is great. The rooms are small but perfectly formed with shared bathroom amenities, as you generally find in ryokans but always clean and I never had to wait to use them. It's in a great central location and the staff are friendly and helpful.

    A beautiful ryokan with all the traditional decor, I mention this as we stayed at another ryokan that was more modern. There is a communal sitting room and the baths. It was perfect for our visit, a very reasonable price and it gave us a better taste of the culture. Fantastically located with great access to the JR and the... More

    It is super nice! Even though it is cheap, it offers all the great facilities that you can expect from a traditional Japanese guesthouse. It is inside Tokyo, so don't expect the grand scale as in Hokkaido, remember it is inside a metropolitan area, and the peacefulness you can enjoy is invaluable! Tatami and Japanese hot tub!!! You definitely need... More

    This is my second stay in Kimi Ryokan.(stayed a few years ago and the quality is the same) I returned for four days because it is the best budget accommodation I have found in Tokyo.

    Appreciate the clean room albeit a bit small even for 1 person but then again this is Tokyo. Open air rooftop very nice touch! Very helpful with pre-arrival enquiries (thank you very much).

    Me and a friend stayed here for 4 days. The room was clean but a bit tight for two. Somehow, we managed. There was a space where you could park your luggage, so that was a plus. Though the shower rooms and toilet were shared per floor, I was always able to use it in the time I want. They... More

    Kimi has a real "backpackers" feel about it. Our room was clean with air-conditioning, but had an odd smell. We didn't have a great night's sleep here, the tatami mats were a bit thin and we could hear people coming and going, the walls aren't very sound proof. The shared bathrooms were clean and we didn't have to wait at... More

    I was recommended this place by a friend who frequents Tokyo. Definitely didn't disappoint! I loved the simple style and the staff were very friendly. Ikebukuro is a very convenient location for traveling around Tokyo. And if you're too tired, there is plenty to do in the area! I would stay here again.
