I was traveling for a conference near this hotel. I decided that it would be interesting to stay in a Japanese style room and was looking for something relatively inexpensive, so the Shoryukan fit the bill. I got the slight larger sized room (though not the largest with a private bath) and it was quite comfortable. There is some noise that carries from neighboring rooms, but it doesn't seem to be the sort of hotel that's likely to attract noisy people. I had a view of a little park across the street.
The bath in the basement is quite nice. Only on my last night there when I went later than normal did I encounter more than one other person. It is large enough that it worked well even with 5-6 of us making use of the various facilities.
The staff were all nice and helpful. They were quite accommodating of the fact that I don't know any Japanese and were helpful in meeting my needs.
The breakfast is quite nice. It consists of coffee, water, a large bowl of rice, miso soup, an egg (done fried, scrambled, or as an omelet), some pickles, and a bowl that changed from day to day, but which typically might have some chicken, onions, and potatoes. It was all tasty and made a nice start to the day. There also seemed to be some other things for children, but I never puzzled out what they were.
