The hotel caters more for the backpacking crowd. The staff speak really good English by Tokyo/ Japanese standards and the breakfasts that are offered cater for the Western Palate – and actually taste quite good. I couldn't understand why the Japanese option was 100 yen more – but I was happy to enjoy the novelty of eating a sandwich with... More

Andon Ryokan is a tricky one to review. Aesthetically it is very pleasing, with a charming boutique finish. The private jacuzzi is an excellent feature which we made good use of (you just book by the desk). The free breakfast in the morning was delicious, and their selection impressive. Staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. And, although we weren't able... More

We stayed at Andon Ryokan for 4 nights with our two 9 year olds (booked 2 double rooms side by side). It was perfect - 4 minute walk from Minowa subway station (a friendly neighbour woman took us there by cab when we arrived as we exited the wrong exit from the subway - take exit 3); and short subway...

We enjoyed our stay at Andon Ryokan. Staff is helpful and friendly. The room is very small but cozy, toilets are clean. Breakfast menu includes western-style and japanese options. Asakusa is at walking distance.

In a quiet neighbourhood, with some good local bars/restaurants, good access to public transport and with some genuinely friendly and helpful staff Andon Ryokan is a great place to call home in Tokyo for a few days. Be warned the rooms are small, but they have everything you need, as have the shared facilities (toilets,showers,kitchen). Everything is spotlessly clean and... More

My son and I forgo the standard western hotels to stay at the Andon Ryokan to get a "feel" for Japan. Best choice made. Not only did Andon Ryokan provide us the tatami style rooms and Japanese breakfast, the rooms had all the comforts for an enjoyable stay. Andon Ryokan offers sake tasting, sushi making and other related seminars in... More

We visited Andon in 2015 cherry blossom period. Rooms: comfortable, cozy. They do well for a night's rest. Try taking the ones away from the common bath, or you'll hear constant footsteps and swinging of doors early in the morning. Neighbourhood: Quiet, peaceful area (like most of Japan Im sure) with everything a short walk away. Dont expect glitsy malls,... More

The Ryokan Andon is a modern-fashionable Ryokan. It is cleaned and quite, the staff is nice and friendly, ready to satisfy the customers requests. The only thing, but I think it's normal for a Ryokan, you can hear everything happens around you, even if someone have to wake up at 3:00 am to take an airplane. Pros: it has a... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
