This ryokan is a great option if you are looking for a affordable stay in Tokyo. It is not a ryokan in the traditional sense, but an interesting design ryokan with cool interiors and facade. The ryokan is situated a little in the outskirts of the large hubs, but is still only 2 stops away from Ueno. The closest metro station, Minowa, is 5 minutes away by walk. Buy a 1-day travel card for the Tokyo Metro.
The rooms are clean and functional. The futon was great, I slept very well and the air con worked perfectly. The tatami in the room was also fresh and clean.
All the amenities including shower and toilet worked well. If you are tired after a day in Tokyo, you can soak up in the jacuzzi (free, just make a reservation at the front desk), or rent a DVD (deposition 1000 yen).
Breakfast is a bargain and well cooked. You can sit next to a table or on cushions on the floor, next to some really nice japanese antiquities. There is a vending machine just outside the hotel where you can buy water, soft drinks and beer. Also, there are several restaurants in the neighborhood.
There is no wi fi, but 2 computers for common use at the ground floor.
The people working at the ryokan speaks good English and are extremely helpful! All in all, I can really recommend this place!
