This ryokan was very cute and quaint! It was very reasonably priced and it had great services. The traditional Japanese room we stayed in was huge and, thus, we had heaps of room for our luggage and buys. It is in a GREAT location! There are two stations that are in a reasonable walking distance, ueno and nezu. It is... More

Tokyo is a very noisy city and we loved to stay in this ryokan in Ueno area, surrounded by a beautiful park but close enough to a very central metro station. The ryokan is exactely as you expect: simple, authentical, and funtional. It's a super efficient location if you're not too pretenciuos and you're not looking for a fancy spot.... More

I stayed at Ryokan Katsutaro twice in Jan 2011 and can fully recommend it. It was easy to find and only a 10min walk from Ueno station along a single road. The staff were very pleasant, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The accommodation is pretty standard ryokan and not set at a high level, but was more than you... More

The perfect place to stay after a long flight. Conveniently situated near Uneo park - one of the sights to see - and a short walk from the station. They have clean, Japanese style rooms. Ours had a small, but sufficient bath. Good value considering normal prices in Tokio!

Stayed as a couple for three nights. Conveniently located a 15 walk from busy Ueno station.... With multiple subway lines, commuter lines and the Skyliner express to the airport, staying anywhere near Ueno is a great idea. A convenience store is located directly across the street. The owner was very friendly, offering an explanation of area amenities on a nice... More

There's nothing particularly wrong with being average and this ryokan is average. Walking in, you are greeted by a friendly, pleasant and accomodating owner (who lives and has his office on a step-up from the ground floor). In the lobby area, there is a long table, chairs and two computers for internet access. Access to the rooms upstairs is via... More

My fiance and I stay here for 1 night in July 2012. We wanted something centrally located, clean, authentically Japanese and fairly priced. We definitely got everything we wanted!

Location might be a 15min from Ueno station, requiring you to walk through Ueno Park and along the zoo. We were lost initially but found the Ryokan after some effort. First impression of the ryokan was that it was really small but the room was great! Spacious with ensuite that was clean and wasn't reeking of smells or any sign... More

Pros: location is central. Easy to reach from various subway stations. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable, same for bathroom. Cheaper than a hotel. The only minor downfall is that it's not a real traditional ryokan (compared to what we experienced at ryokans in Kyoto and Nara), but more of a guesthouse. But still, it's a very convenient and cheap... More

I stayed there 4 nights in early February. For my first visit to Japan I wanted to stay in a traditional Japanese inn, and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms were very nice, with tatami and futon beds, and quite a lot of space. Our room didn't have private bath (some do I think), but the shared facilities were nice and... More
