The best definitely is their public bath in the basement. Very relaxing after a long day of work or sightseeing. My room was very spacious (for a Japanese hotel room) and had everything I needed. The Japanese breakfast is a nice touch, though a bit simple. The staff is friendly and always trying to help. Also amazing communication via email before and after my stay. Would always book this little oasis within this mega city again.
This small hotel is not far from three different subway lines. Western travelers maybe not used to its Japanese style breakfast but i like it very much. Besides eggs, they offer small dishes with rice, it can be pickles or cabbage with minced meat. And it changes everyday, i don't feel bored at all. Public bath is a plus, you can relax in hot bath after a long day. Staff are extremely helpful. Will stay again.
I left my iphone under the quilt and took a taxi to the airport. Because I brought 2 phones with me so I did find i missed one until I was on the plane ready to take off. The staff told my next-door friend （Luckily she was still there and would spend another 2 days) and then she informed me. I feel very sorry for my mistake and appreciate the staff's integrity and honest. The staff speak good English and one of them even speak Chinese fluently. Deeply impressive. The hotel is close to the famous book store street jimbōchō. A paradise for book lovers.
We stayed several nights here with my family of 4. 2 teenage kids. The rates are reasonable for this expensive city. The 4 person traditional room was small, for 4, but if you roll up your bed roll, you can make do fine. We were out and about all day, so the size the the room wasn't an issue. The public bath was very nice, always clean, and something we all looked forward to each day to relax and rejuvenate for the next adventure. Good location with 3 subway stations nearby, and perhaps 1.5 miles from Tokyo Station. The staff is helpful, and most are fluent in Japanese and English. Included breakfast is traditional Japanese - fried egg, rice, Miso soup, coffee or tea and veggies.
Ochanomizu Hotel Shoryukan offers bath on the basement level, which might be good for bath lovers, but the room was very small and uncomfortable if you have family. The pictures show very spacious, but it is not. Two-night stay was not enjoyable.
Stayed for 4 nights back in dec 2017 as a solo female traveller in the smallest single room. It was quite a squeeze with my luggage but apart from that everything else was clean and comfortable. Had a relaxing time in the public baths which were also very clean with all amenities provided. Next to the baths, there is a small recreational room with massage chairs which were also great after a long day of walking! I loved the basic breakfast which was just right for me, the eggs were cooked very well and all in all it was a wholesome meal. Best thing about the stay was the hotel staff who were extremely courteous and could speak pretty good english! it’s a small hotel so they could recognise me and give me my key without even asking for my name. Helped me to book several restaurants as well as the airport shuttle bus. At the end of my stay, they gave a cute little farewell gift and even stood outside the hotel to bid farewell until I walked to the end of the street! Location wise, it is ok with around 3 subway stations located nearby. It is a quaint neighbourhood which I enjoyed after staying in busy Shinjuku! …
Friendly staff that speaks good English. Hotel accepted to switch us to a non-smoking room although we accidentally booked a smoking one. We were asked to pay the stay at check-in. Rooms are only available from 3pm so we left our luggage at the reception. When we came back it was already in our room. Room was super clean and has a nice design. For Tokyo the room was big and had a view on the park. Futon bed was great. Bathroom is nice and it was great that it had a western shower. Breakfast has a limited choice but is ok. It would be great to offer tea as an alternative to the coffee.
For me this hotel is not close to the transportation, you need walk around 10 mins to 20 mins to the hotel, and they are on the other line so your 1 day pass may not work with this Breakfast was ok for 1 day, but then you will get very bored since they are giving only pickle and rice.The onsen is very small, as well as the changing area got only space for 2,3 persons, room is tidy, clean. If you are not fan of chiyoda you basically have nothing to do by walking distance
Location is very good (1km Imperial Palace, 7min on foot ftom station Ochanomizu, 25min on foot from Tokyo Station). Room in Japanese style was unusual but very comfortable. Japanese breakfast is tasty and substantial. Staff is very friendly and hospitable.
I stayed here with my husband and two kids in one of the traditional tatami rooms. It was a lovely experience to sleep on the futons in a traditional Japanese way. Our room had a wooden bath tub on the balcony and we loved it. The onsen bath of the hotel was also great for soaking after a long and sweaty day of sightseeing. The staff at the hotel were super friendly. They even gave some candy for the kids when we arrived and small gifts for all of us when we left. The breakfast was mostly Japanese stuff but they fried eggs for us.
