Hoshidekan is an attractively ramshackle and traditional inn in a large old wooden building in the Kawasaki district of Ise, about 10 minutes walk from the station. The rooms are Japanese style with shared bathrooms, and there's free wifi. The room rates are very competitive. But, as other reviewers have advised, check in advance whether breakfast is included. Bicycles are... More

The small cheap ryokans are the more memorable stays of my japanese trips. Forget about business hotel, just try something different! This place was really lovely and extremely cheap, although it was a little cold to go to the toilet and washrooms, as there is an actual outdoor bridge connecting the two sections of the house. Traditional tatami room. Nice... More

Our ryokan in Ise-She was a charming old historic building. The room was spacious enough. Finding the shared bathroom however was a minor quest... three connecting buildings were responsible for this. The hosts were very friendly and helpfull. They also showed us the soundgarden, very nice. Since there are shared bathrooms, a light in the hallway always need to be... More

The whole building is already worth visiting. A red bridge is at the 2nd floor. Beautiful interior design. Rooms are designed in traditional Japanese style. Pillow is made of beans. For me it is acceptable, but my girlfriend felt it was too hard. Bathroom and restroom are shared. Toothpaste, toothbrushes and hair dryer are all available. For shower, we had... More

This ryokan has a lot of character. The building has a nice interior garden, a red bridge between some of the rooms, the rooms are Japanese style but quite large, very comfortable. Good wifi, nice bath, and very friendly owner and staff. We did not try the meals so we cannot comment. A useful tip for you: They rent bikes... More

Rooms are nice and there's good, strong wifi in the rooms. The place has a ton of character - a garden, a bridge, a hand-crank gramophone... Very interesting place. The bath is just so-so. Make sure to reserve breakfast in advance (at booking), otherwise you may not be able have it. We tried to reserve it when we checked in... More

Just perfect. High services but low price. Well located in Ise , just 5 minutes from the station. The staff is particularly kind. Built around a small but beautiful japanese garden. Really a nice place to stay and very good value for money. Breakfast is good too, served in a cute japanese room on tatamis. A genuine Ryokan, what else.

I am a Japanese living on the Gold Coast, Australia, and was looking for a place to stay during my trip to Ise shrine and this ryokan was brought to my attention via trip advisor. I checked the ryokan's website and made a telephone call to arrange a reservation. The first thing the staff advised me was that the building... More

Hoshidekan is a small traditional hotel (ryokan) in the city of Ise, famous for its two shrines. The staff is extremely friendly: when they found out that we were leaving for Tokyo, and without us asking for it, they rushed to print out for us maps of Tokyo's subway system, and during our stay they were helpful in more than...
