6-tatami mat room

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2008

Stayed here during my last 2 nights in Tokyo as it was close to Asakusa. The nearest Tokyo Metro is Iriya, which is conveniently located 1 stop away from Ueno Station (JR, Keisei, Metro lines converge). The front office is located on the 2nd floor so you need to lug your luggage up a flight of stairs. You can then use the elevators to get to your room after you check in. You have to lug them down the stairs again after you check out though. The ladies bathroom is on the 1st floor, but I couldn't find the elevator's entrance from the outside of the ryokan. It's quite eerie to get to the bathroom but the elevators gives you privacy to get directly from your room without being seen by other guests. Free Internet available as well as sembei in the dining/lounge area. My room was spacious for a single person and has a sink and a table. The public toilets are clean and conveniently located on every floor. Each room has a TV, heater (that was too noisy at times), hot water thermos, complimentary coffee and tea, cup, toothbrush, razor and yukata. Bedding was comfortable. 7-11, grocery store, 100Yen shop and a few restaurants located along the way for subway to hotel. Staff are friendly but don't speak much English. There are plenty of travel materials for you to read. Overall, highly recommended if you intend to have a place to sleep, rest and spend most of the day exploring nearby Asakusa and Ueno. Beats staying in a dorm. Rates start from 5,500Yen per room per night. 4/5 stars!

Unique Quality: The light switch to the room is an airconditioner lookalike remote controller. (see picture below). Took me sometime wandering about in semi-darkness looking for the light switch until I accidentally pushed a button.

The heater / airconditioner has an instruction manual. Very noisy tho so you better remember to turn it off if you want to sleep soundly.

Can feel tremors at times.

Directions: Iriya Metro Subway exit, cross traffic lights and walk till you reach a 3-way intersection. Cut across to the florist and walk for 50m. Ryokan located at the end of the road.
