Reviewed August 3, 2012

My daughter and I stayed for one week and it was a great little hotel. She chose the Japanese style room whilst I took the Western style, both were very clean and comfortable. Staff were very attentive and always helpful. Breakfast was simple Japanese, but a good and healthy start to the day. The jazz bar was a relaxing end to the day. It was very close to subway stations giving easy access to all of Tokyo. Just a note for guitar lovers it is about 5 minutes walk to 38 guitar stores virtually in the one street; overpowering! I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and thank all the staff for a great stay. The area around is not a tourist area but we did not go to Japan to meet tourists and many other areas are full of tourists.

Room Tip: Simple, if want tradition Japanese you sleep on the floor on a roll up futon, or you can chose the w...

I decided to book here for two nights at the tail end of my Tokyo stay when my first hotel was no longer available. I choose the japanese style single (sleeping on a mattress on a tatami mat floor) just because I thought it would be an interesting experience. The room is incredibly well appointed. It was tiny, but managed to have room for a desk with low chair, TV, drawer and shelf space, mini-mini-fridge, teapot and private bath of course. I was totally comfortable, but I don't mind sitting on the floor. I slept very well with no aches. The room was on the second floor and was very quiet, even though the hotel appeared to have many guests (all japanese except me, I might add!). There are communal baths available, segregated by sex (basically very hot baths to soak in to relax). I didn't expect to be interested, but the room and bath looked so pleasant, I was enticed to go for a soak. They also served a simple buffet breakfast eggs, miso soup, rice, small salads, and coffee/tea which was included in the room price. It was delicious. All this is very authentically japanese and intimate- never do you feel like anything is orchestrated just for a commercial purpose. I also had the greatest experience with the front desk. Aside from them calling restaurants to make reservations for me and giving me directions, they went above and beyond to fulfill my quest to buy Yakatas (cotton japanese robes). I mentioned that I really liked the ones provided by the hotel and asked where I could find them. I told them I was short on time and if they had any to sell, I would even buy the one in my room, though previously used. Next time I went to the desk, there was a beautifully wrapped package of a brand new yakata and belt, identical to the one I'd been asking for. I was so delighted! I had seen many on my trip, but none I liked as much as the ones here. Unbelievable service from a bargain hotel. Location is also good. Several subway stops just 5 mins walk, if that, connecting you to multiple lines. Good restaurants in the neighborhood, too. I stumbled upon Subaya (Okanawa-ese cuisine) which was unusual, healthy, and delicious. Would definitely go back if traveling alone.

We stayed 4 nights at hotel Shoryukan near Ochanomizu and loved every minute of our stay there. The staff speaks English and is very nice and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the Japanese breakfast in the in-house jazz club every morning was delicious and the sentō is perfect. The prices are very correct. Be warned that most of the customers of the hotel are locals and that the area is as non-touristic as you can get in Tokyo. Don't expect to find foreign food, newspapers or TV channels.
