When looking to stay in Kanazawa, one would be hard pressed to find a more perfect place than Sumiyoshiya. The location is great, as it is very close to both the Omi-Cho Market, and the Kanazawa Castle Park. We spent two nights at this ryokan and could not have been happier! Mie Sumi was the consumate hostess! When asked for extra water in the room, recommendations for a shushi restaurant, arranging for taxis, all was taken care of in a matter of minutes. She even provided us with the name and location of the where to find the wonderful tea sweets served in our room. The room (#2) was spacious and immaculate. The dinner (served in our room) was outstanding! Crab, grilled fish, sushimi, shrimp, and clear soup with clam were all delicious. We could not have asked for a more wonderful meal! While Kanazawa was a bit quiet (mid-June, Tues-Thurs) we found plenty to do around town, and will make a return visit in November. When we do, we plan to stay at Sumiyoshiya once again.

We had a wonderful stay at Sumiyoshiya. The property itself is older but very well taken care of and our room was clean and comfortable. We booked late and the only room available was one with shared bath. So that meant we had a toilet in the room but had to go to a shared, single sex bathroom for showers. There was one open space for showers and a hot bath so it can be slightly comfortable if you're not used to the open concept. Thankfully I had the whole place to myself on a Tues night and I was able to have some peace and quiet in the hot tub/bath. The owners were extremely friendly and the entire stay (check-in, check-out, etc) was very pleasant. But the best part was the kaiseki dinner that was available as an additional option (approx. $50-60/person). It was a seafood feast featuring all the fresh daily catch from the fish market next door. It was so delicious and amazing that I'd stay here again just for the dinner! The location was great; an easy walk from the main station, right next to the famous Omicho Market and a short walk to the Kenrokuen Garden. I highly recommend Sumiyoshiya for the hospitality and the amazing dinner!

My husband, Mum and 7mo baby stayed 3 nights and fell in love with Sumiyoshiya Ryokan. Mie Sumi who runs the accomodation was thoughtful and attentive. Rooms are very beautiful, and the Onsen was so relaxing. We had room type 1,3 and 4 which all had private toilets and bathrooms with type 3 having an actual private bath. The dinner was a lovely experience enjoyed in our room and the continental breakfast was generous.

We stayed for two nights as this ryokan and it was the best choice. First of all, Mie Sumi is the most efficient person to deal with - she always responded to any queries I had on time and accommodated requests as best as she could. The ryokan is centrally located - very close to the market and the main attractions (the castle, the gardens, Higashi-Chaya). We walked everywhere. The service is excellent-we had a room with a private shower and toilet the first night but we had to change rooms the next. They took care of everything - from taking your luggage up to the room and getting it ready for sleep. There was always tea and sweets for us when we got in. Also, on our last night we had dinner at the ryokan and it was the best meal - they are so close to the market so we had the freshest sashimi, fish and tempura. The place itself was spotless. And when I took a shower at the shared bathroom, it was impeccable. I am so glad we chose this place and would stay there again when I go back. It’s the very best of Japanese hospitality. Mie Sumi also gave us restaurant recommendations, made reservations for us and suggested we reserve our JR train to Tokyo. No request went unnoticed and they really do their very best to please their guests.

We stayed here as two couples in Rooms 1 & 2 (with private bathroom and toilet) and we cannot say enough good things about it. Mie, the owner, was extremely helpful, informing us in advance about train disruptions due to the typhoon, she booked restaurants for us in advance, organised for our luggage to go to Tokyo in advance, in short she did everything. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious, there was a small sitting area outside our rooms where you could sit of an evening, breakfast was excellent, the location is perfect for all things downtown. We stayed for 4 nights and I was a bit worried that might be too long but not at all - we would have happily stayed another four days. And... the 4 nights cost us less than one night in our Tokyo hotel!!
