I stayed at Andon Ryokan together with my husband for 5 nights in early February 2016. The 4 nights were spent on the first floor with double tatami bed. The size of the room is small (as expected) but everything is very clean and tidy. The space is somewhat enough for the both of us and we didn't feel "cramp"... More

Nice place. Good breakfast. Very friendly staff. Walls are a bit thin so if you are a light sleeper, beware. Shared, clean bathrooms. You can reserve the hot bath upstairs in advance which is a treat. Nice luggage elevator so you do not have to carry anything except yourself up the stairs!

Traditional Ryokan but housed in a modern build, it's fantastic, about 30 mins from Shibuya (famous crossing) and only 5 mins walk from Minowa Metro which takes you into the heart of the city! You get a real sense of old Tokyo walking round this area and it's a great contrast with the buzz of the centre. The rooms are... More

Traditional japanese inn, shared toilets bathrooms sinks etc. Might be because we went in January... But the bathroom is absolutely freezing feels like showering inside until the shower heat fills the room.. Lucky that the toilets are heated seats but the room itself again is freezing. Rooms Are tiny but heating is good, no toothbrushes or amenities only towels .... More

I stayed there quite a few years ago, but since making a TripAdvisor account I feel inclined to leave them an official review. I want to start by saying that this is perhaps the greatest hotel/bed&breakfast I have ever stayed at; and anyone traveling to Tokyo should treat themselves to a visit here. The staff is just so immeasurably polite,... More

I really love this place. It is 2 stops from Ueno on the subway and within walking distance of Ueno Park. We stayed in 2013 and returned again in 2015. Nothing has changed. The friendly and helpful staff, immaculate rooms and private jacuzzi are still there. As are the cheap breakfast options and the unlimited free espresso coffee. Yes, the... More

I have stayed at Andon Ryokan every Spring since 2011. I love the location, the architecture, the kind and helpful staff and the delicious breakfasts. The rooms are small but not an issue for me and I don't mind sharing the very clean restrooms and showers especially considering the affordable rates.

We loved staying here and we looked forward to the breakfasts. Our stay was 5 + 2 nights and I shared one room with my two kids. And we loved it! Especially the jacuzzi before bed time. I miss the traditional japanese breakfast that I had every day. We will be back for sure.

I stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed it so much I came back for more on a recent trip. It is a bit removed from the main hustle and bustle of the centre of Tokyo, but easily accessed by public transport (Minowa station) and holds the middle between a boutique hotel and a hostel. I guess a boutique... 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.
