The hosts are charming and accommodating. Most ryokan and hotels in Japan are very rigid about hours of check in, usually mid afternoon. But they were kind enough to allow an early check in. The food was just delicious. It was a wonderful experience. And the bath was very pleasant, a sort of small onsen.

We had a huge room for the four of us, and we had a very warm welcome by a very small, elderly woman, who was obviously used to explaining everything to guests in jinglish. She did that very well, and we were very happy about our stay as well as the food.

This is a hotel that only people who will appreciate "old antique stuff" will appreciate it. One bubbly charming lady has worked there since she was 19, and she is now 70. The other stuff (and staff?) in the hotel looks as ancient. Not sound proof, which is not a surprising fact. We enjoyed our stay because it is one of a kind and as others have said, very authentic (including the shared toilet for most rooms). They also serve breakfast in your room -- how many hotels do that, right? However, if like someone I know, if you have to go to the toilet in the middle of the night, and walk through a corridor full old old dolls and Japanese masks staring at you (and imagine they are winking at you), this may not be your cup of tea!!

We had the best stay of our 3 week trip of Japan at Suiyoshi Ryokan, my only regret was that we did not stay here longer. The welcome was delightful and our evening meal was a feast which we will never forget. Take the hosts advice and don't eat a big lunch! The bonus of this Ryokan was the opportunity to use the private onsen (hot spring thermal bath) which we took full advantage of and it helped us enjoy a blissed out sleep on the cosy futon laid out in our room. The mornings breakfast was just as special and we left regretful to be moving on but delighted to have had the experience.

We spent two nights here in a room overlooking the river. Our room had its own toilet and handbasin but we used the shared (traditional) style bath and shower facilities. Meals were served on the floor in our room by the irrepressably cheerful hostess. The food was authentic traditional Japanese and it just kept coming: course upon course! There is the option of a western style continental breakfast, but we opted for the Japanese and were pleased we did... Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. You sleep on the floor in a traditional futon arrangement and we had the best night's rest since arriving in Japan. Quaint, antique with bags of character and old world charm. A massive contrast after the slick modern Tokyo Park Hotel, but what an experience....!
