This is a non-typical ryokan meaning it's modern, designed and with lift (at least for luggage), but it retains traditional feel of warm, welcoming ryokan. Located in a quiet, residentioal area (Asakusa district, Hibya Line - station Minowa just 500m) it in perfect location to explore Tokyo (major attractions without metro line change). Ryokan is very friendly and clean, offering... More

A nice way to start our Japan trip. In a quiet neighborhood, close to all public transport. The room and staff gave us a great first impression of what Japan is like: hospitable, friendly, clean and esthetically simple. Breakfast nice. And yes: after traveling for 24h that jacuzzi was heaven :)

Stayed here for 3 nights as a base for exploring Tokyo. Great transport links (5 minutes to the Minowa subway station) and a quiet local area for a good night's sleep. Hostel itself is very clean and modern but full of quirky antiques. Staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The free breakfast options were varied and delicious. The private... More

I tagged along with my husband for his business trip and had some time to explore Tokyo! I needed somewhere somewhat inclusive, a little English speaking and safe. THIS IS THE PLACE! So nice and very Japanese! Clean, quiet, in a safe neighborhood that was very close to many temples, the subway and buses (if you are so inclined). I... More

I loved this place. It was modern and yet traditional all at the same time. The staff were lovely, full of useful information and made our first couple of nights stay in Japan really easy. The breakfast was delicious and I'd recommend it. We would definitely recommend this place and I would stay again. It is a little further out,... More

Located at ueno, easy to get to airport. The room is a bit tiny, while our room is located near the breakfast area, thus is a bit noisy in the morning. Been awake in very early morning due to the noise, the sun light too. Is shared bathroom, but using a smell good shiseido shampoo and bath gel. Still, a... More

We stayed at Andon at the beginning and end of our Japan trip. It was excellent value and the staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The ryokan is modern and clean with tiny rooms and communal bathroom facilities - However, the size of the rooms made for an authentic and memorable experience! The jacuzzi on the top floor is absolutely... More

The whole experience at Andon was just great. Here are the highlights: - Staff is extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We arrived late at night from a flight into Narita and we were given instructions and a phone number to call since the desk is manned until 10pm. Make sure you have coins for the phone at the Minowa subway... More

About the service, it is good. Nice people doing the service, speaking a very good english. About the place: modern style ryokan, clean. It is fine. Rooms are small, but it is ok. About the clients: mostly tourists, and as usual, some of them do not master the basic rules of living together. Noisy, selfish people. So, if you can... More

The room was small but sufficient and cleaned daily. The hosts were lovely and very helpful giving us tips for the area which was also conveniently located close to the city. The shared amenities were clean and the jacuzzi upstairs was great! Would definitely recommend and stay there again if I have the chance!

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.
