The room was only minimal size; however when you are only really sleeping and showering/bathing it is quite suitable. There was a fridge available; however remember to remove anything you have placed in there before the morning you leave as it is on a timer that locks at 6:30 am the day of departure. There is no kettle in the... More

i was lucky to get a good deal and was put in the suite ryokan style, nice big room with a view of Dontonburi! In a few minutes walk and you could reach all the shopping and eating area of Dontonburi and Shinsaibashi. About 10 minutes walk from Nippombashi station! Though the hotel could use some renovation, location is super... More

Our group of 6 booked 2 triple rooms. We advised the hotel we were checking in late because of our flight ETA. Our rooms were quaintly fascinating since it would be the first time we get to stay in a ryokan style room. The futon was comfortable and I was happy we had extra pillows. No issues about the bathroom... More

I stayed here for one night during the last week of August 2014. I initially chose Yamatoya Honten because of its label as a traditional ryokan. How can one visit Japan without ever trying out a ryokan? It wasn't a horrible stay. But I think next time I will try a higher end ryokan. Cons: -My room was TINY -There... More
