We enjoyed the size of our room as well as the complementary tea and biscuits. The staff was really kind and helpful and they recommended good restaurants. The facilities (toilet, shower, and bath) could have been a bit more modern and each toilet stall could have been a little bigger. A bit more privacy in a toilet stall would also have been greatly appreciated.

I could feel traditional Japanese ryokan. It was clean and calm. The only weakness is little far from subway station. Staffs was thoughtful to visitors.

An amazing traditional style hotel. The staff is extremly helpful and responsive. You also get your own private traditional style bath when you stay in the hotel part which was pretty awesome. In amazing location with quick walking distance to two subway lines and the Tokyo Dome to catch a Giants baseball game. Also right next to Tokyo University which is a beautiful campus to walk around. Highly recommend

Very traditional and relaxing hostel. The staff really helped us to find whatever we needed. It is a bit of distance from Tokyo centre, but a great experience!

A very traditional hotel, pure japanese style ! (common bathroom, traditional bed and so on). Worth to try for a short time, pretty cheap. No wi-fi but internet access with a computer at the reception. Staff is ok but they are not very good english speakers.

Really cool old style hostel. Our best stay the hole trip. The location may not be in the city centre, but is easy to find and accessible through the subway system. The hostel is old, has an old style you would expect from a Japanese hostel, and is really well maintained. The staff speaks English and were very helpful upon arrival.

It is a little far from main subway station- which could be a pain if you have heavy luggage. Other than that, it is perfect for people want to enjoy a quiet and peaceful Tokyo. It is extremely close to Tokyo University, great atmosphere around, a lot restaurants and walk tours to take. The staff speak pretty good English and it is a great Japanese tamami style hostel which you don't always get.

We were disappointed to stay in Morikawa. It would be good to find out which of the three houses one is staying in in advance. After trekking up form the station we had to walk on again! Doesn't look anywhere near as good as the pictures. You would need to be in the other house for the garden - which was really the view we were hoping for considering this was our engagement celebration holiday. All in all it was perfectly average, but I'd say you can get more for your money elsewhere.

Excellent traditional Ryokan, one of the best I've ever been to! With my husband, we would have loved to stay for longer (we stayed only for two nights) so next time we will do it for sure! Thanks so much for the kindness and big efforts of the hosts! They are all very heartwarming! Something we really enjoyed in our stay and wanted to remark: the "ofuro" (traditional Japanese Bath) reserved for families. Really relaxing!

We had an excellent stay. The people running the inn were extremely kind and helpful, and one spoke very good English, which was helpful for us.

My family and I stayed here for two nights. We wanted the Japanese Ryokan experience; Tatami mats, group baths and traditional breakfast. It was wonderful. The staff was flexible about letting four of us stay in a room for three despite me making reservation mistakes. The house is beautiful and in a great older neighborhood with a traditional feel. Walking distance to one of the most beautiful parks in Tokyo, one of the best temples and the National Museum. Excellent!

Beautiful building and atmosphere. Would have liked to have been able to lock our door from the inside at night.

Homeikan is our go-to inn in Tokyo. The staff is friendly and helpful. The traditional ryokan atmosphere and hospitality is fast disappearing from Tokyo, but Homeikan retains the hospitality and ambience of the relaxing ryokan experience. Be sure not to miss the hot bath when you stay there and give our greetings to the staff, especially the ever-cheerful Ms. Ito. - R. Meher
