We stayed here in 2012 during the winter months. Owner was friendly and rooms were good. Good sleep every night. A short walk away was a good place for coffee. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice affordable stay in Ueno.

I agree with all the previous comments and would like to add that the ryokan has a washer/dryer. 300 yen for the washer (supplies soap) and the dryer is free. Also a common fridge is handy. Found the bed to be very comfortable.....daily maid service. I would recommend giving a miss to a restaurant located just down the road towards... More

After the hustle and bustle of the majority of Tokyo, the neighborhood of the Ryokan Katsutaro is like an oasis of quiet and calm but it's also very close to 2 metro stations for easy access to that hustle and bustle. It is also located very near to the old district with good museums close by. The ryokan is typical... More

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.

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
