Nice hotels are a dime a dozen, but every now and then you come across a little gem with so much charm and character that it becomes one of those places you know you'll come back to. Edo Sakura is one of those places. The traditional-style rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, with all the modern amenities you could need while still retaining the feel of traditional authenticity. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Everyone I met there felt like a new friend! The tea ceremony was very special and memorable, and don't pass up at least one visit to the public bath. This place is also very conveniently located for using public transportation. All in all this was an ideal stay!

We booked a Japanese style room for 10 nights here. We could not have found a better base for our Tokyo exploring. The entire staff became like friends during the week. Any question we had about transportation, nearby restaurants or things we needed for our room were taken care of quickly and honestly. I wasn't sure what to expect with our room since we were sleeping on mats on the floor in our Japanese style room. After a few minutes of lying down I realized I needed an extra mat and pillows to be comfortable. A call to the desk later and they were delivered to our room with no problems. The breakfasts you can purchase are well done and prepared individually. We had breakfast here about 4-5 times during our stay. We also took advantage of their ofuro (hot bath) for 500 yen for 40 minutes. It was so nice to soak in the hot water at the end of a long day of walking. The hotel is on a quiet street off the main road but within a 2 minute walk of a convenience store where we purchased bottled water, snacks and even some meals. It is within walking distance of Iriya and Uguisidani Metro stations. If we are ever in Tokyo again we will definitely stay here, I can't recommend it highly enough. Yoko and Toshi were extremely helpful during our stay, going out of their way to make us comfortable. A plus for foreign travelers is most of their staff speaks outstanding English as our Japanese is very rudimentary.

Lovely hotel with delightful touches such as a tea ceremony room (daily at 10.00), a hot bath (daily 15.00-23.00), communal breakfast tables, small Japanese garden, smoking room. Serves delicious breakfasts ranging from a full fish breakfast to yogurt and toast. Rooms exceedingly comfortable although not large. Small bathroom with shower tub perfectly adequate. Very friendly staff with good english. All in all a fabulous base for exploring a vibrant, exhilarating city.

We stayed at the Edo Sakura two nights in their Traditional Japanese Room. Our host at the hotel explained the traditions that could be experienced at the hotel over a cup of tea. Besides having the most friendly staff, the hotel is located in a super cozy neighborhood with access to mini-markets and even a bakery just a couple of blocks away. You can even walk to Ueno from the hotel if you are a walker and want to save a little on subway tickets. <3 We will definitely go back to this Ryokan when we go back to Japan!

This place is a gem in Tokyo. Very quiet neighborhood with Konbini close by. Five minute walk to Iriya Metro Stop. We stayed in traditional Japanese room and it was a fun experience. The room was on the small side with small table and futons. Just as advertised. Bathroom was ensuite. The hotel staff were top notch, friendly and helpful.
