We had a wonderful stay at the Andon Ryokan in Tokyo! This must be one of the best budget stays in the city. The atmosphere was absolutely great. The staff super nice and friendly and extremely helpful. Every day we discovered some cool features. Everything was available despite the rather small but traditional japanese rooms. Good A/C and a nice... More

3 of us spent 4 nights here in May 2014. Overall I found the place has a 'hostel feel'. The staff are very helpful and speak English well (which is a plus compared to many places in Japan). Breakfast was very good and you have a reasonable selection from a 'postcard book'. You can also have breakfast on the roof... More

A great modern Ryokan with cool and friendly staff.

Had an excellent experience with Andon Ryokan - I was a solo female traveler on a tight budget, and I didn't expect to stay somewhere so cool at my price range. It's not a traditional ryokan - I think it can be more accurately described as the world's fanciest youth hostel. It is very stylish - the tatami mats in... More

I stayed here for 5 nights (and received a discount for the long stay) in April 2014. The location near Asakusa in North Tokyo was good because it is an inexpensive area where you get an insight into the everyday life of local Tokyo people. For example, there are a lot of old style sento (public baths) in the area.... More

Andon Ryokan is in a quiet area, a little off the beaten path. I followed the directions on their website and found them without problem. The rooms are small, with tatami mats and futon, and decorated in a contemporary style with dark wood. I found it very comfortable, but two people sharing would be very tight. My suitcase fit at...

Good location, modern style but with traditional elements such as the breakfast nook or the sleeping on mats on the floor. cosy,clean and friendly and helpful staff. Great view from the roof where you can enjoy your breakfast. More adult clientele than your regular hostel. The staff provides you with an area map and can suggest restaurants or activities.

Andon Ryokan is a gem of excellent design for small spaces - not a square centimeter is wasted. The communal space downstairs and on the roof are fantastic, quirky and comfortable. The rooms are small but perfectly formed - JUST enough room for two. The shared facilities are tight but efficient. And the whirlpool bath and shower is just fab!... More

We've never had accommodations with shared facilities before so we were a bit reluctant to stay at a ryokan. But we heard from friends that it's a must if we're to travel in Japan. This place was great! When we return to Tokyo, we will definitely stay here again. Why we loved Andon: --Hospitable and friendly hosts. Yuki was awesome.... More
