Awesome Japanese style old hotel. Love it. It has nice bathroom with hot bath for 24 hours. The room was very old style and comfortable. Having breakfast in bedroom is also available . Wanna visit there again .

Really enjoyed our stay here. It's about a ten-fifteen minute walk from a Subway station - just five stops from Tokyo. I was concerned from other reviews that it would be difficult to find /inconvenient, but I rather liked it! The room itself was great - big and a super cozy futon, although the bathrooms aren't as modern. It was worth it for the lovely room and nice atmosphere - beautiful garden, etc. Breakfast was great value.

Some chairs would have made us foreigners more comfortable.

This is a great place to stay if you need some room (from small hostel rooms as we discovered). We had a twin room - traditional style - beds on the floor, a fridge, tv, table/cushions tea and coffee. The place is characteristic and the hot baths are relaxing. Nice traditional place. Near metro but area does not have much to do (uni area)

Thank you for your stay at this very old traditional Ryokan . Our style can be super minority in accommodation business in big city like Tokyo. You say small hostel rooms. This is wrong. they are real authentic Japanese rooms in Ryokan. Ryokan is Japan original and may be very unique for foreigners. This can be the reason why Hostelworld.com might put Ryokan into hostel category. Yes, you are right. This area is good for resident who like quiet,clean and academic atmosphere.

We had a lovely stay! The whole staff is very friendly, helpful and shows you everything you need to know (in English!). The night was quiet and the bath we took was really relaxing! I'd love to come back to the Homeikan when I'm in Tokyo again!

Although this very likely was a reputable inn at one point, it seems that it has seen better days. This traditional ryokan is somewhat dusty, smelled of mold, and definitely didn't seem the cleanest. It was way overpriced, in my opinion. Potential guests should know that showers are communal. Overall, a good experience (for the traditional aspect of things including communal showers, tatami mats, yukata robes, matcha tea, etc.), but I wouldn't stay here again because of location and high cost.

*Location: it is not near to the main attractions, but the subway is 10 minutes walking. *Very difficult to find, as the sign is only in Japanese!!! *Staff: not very good English *if you are looking for a Japanese experience, this is the place!!!! Nice room, typical shower, amazing breakfast. :) *Not really a place to meet people, but overall I would definitely recommend it! It was a really different experience!

Amazing. Just make sure to stay in the main building with the garden. Couldn't ask for more. Seriously. If facilities were better (although I don't mind it) this could be easily converted in a boutique 5 star hotel. Don't hesitate.
