For me as someone who traveled alone, this ryokan had everything I really needed: - Air-Conditioner - own bathroom with toilet and shower - towels, hair-dryer, free tea - very quiet - many more The ryokan was very easy accessible from Narita airport by Skyliner. It is near to two different stations which allows to access places like Shibuya, Harajuku,... More

Stayed here 2 nights with my bf in our 2nd part of Tokyo trip. A nice elderly gentleman helped me with my luggage. Mind you, it's not common for a Japanese man to offer that. Location is far from JR Nippori station, the one you need to take to go Shinjuku and Ikebukuro - 15mins walk. The good - it... More

Very good, cheap and comfortable ryokan. Located very close to both Tokyo Subway and Nippori JR station. Rooms are clean, private and silent. We only had problems with the wi-fi connection (the password on the sheet they gave us was not correct it seems, and the connection was laggy and jumpy overall), but that was a minor issue for us....

I've stayed here twice - once in 2009 and again in Nov 2014. I still think it's the best place to stay in Japan. From the airport, it's an easy 36 minutes to Nippori station by Skyliner. To get to Annex Katsutaro, you walk through a beautiful old village where there's plenty of treats for you to eat or take... More

An absolute fantastic experience! This ryokan is just around the corner of Yanakaginza, a local street with small local shops and eateries. 10 minute walk to Nippori station. We booked a deluxe room for 4 nights, the room is very japanese style with tatami mats on the floor and futons to sleep on. Very clean and neat. It also have... More

It is about 15 min on foot from to Nippori station. To get there, go out the NW exit and follow the small road until it dead ends, turn left and the Ryokan is about 100 m on the left. The walk involves going down some steps and passing through a small open air arcade-like area. Google maps makes it... More

The first thing one has to point out is the great location: just 2 minutes walk from the metro station (Sendagi, Chiyoda line) and 10 minutes walk from the JR train (Nippori station, Yamanote line), this ryokan is very easily accessible. Convenience stores, small shops and restaurants are also in very close proximity. The area itself is wonderful: located in... More

Annex Katsutaro Ryokan was my second place of stay after Oak Hotel and it was well worth it. I had no clue if the place would be great but i primarily took the place because it was close to Nippori station where i could take the Keisei Skyliner up to Narita Airport.
