"My home away home in Tokyo"
Shoryukan is such a gem in the middle of Tokyo's well regarded academic and business district. But it is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood to promise you a good sleep. Throughout my three-day stay, the staff took great care of my needs with impeccable attention that is impossible in large chain hotels. I liked their idea of serving small (but delicate and delicious) portion of breakfast as it ensures minimum wastes (of course you can ask for another bowl of rice and miso soup etc. if needed more). The public bath and rest area in the basement are also pretty comfortable. The only downside is its smallness of single room -- I took a peek of twin rooms when cleanings are going on, and they appear to be sufficiently large, though. In any case, the hotel was so cozy that I wanted to extend my stay, but unfortunately all the single rooms were already booked. Now Shoryukan is definitely one of my top list in Tokyo hotels.

"great staff and atmosphere"
this is a small hotel in a chill part of town with a terrific, attentive staff. they serve a delicious japanese breakfast and were quick to offer options when the featured meal was something I couldn't eat. the rooms are small but not by Tokyo standards, and very well laid out, and well insulated from cross noise from other rooms. A really well-designed place. The common rooms have a jazz theme and there was always some interesting chill music playing at breakfast. The staff was just the best - when I thought I'd lost my credit card, I went up and searched my room - by the time I'd come back downstairs they'd already called the hotel in Nikko that I'd just stayed at to be sure I'd not left it there. Checked if I needed my room made up each day, or just an extra towel; booked my taxi to Tokyo Station with timing advice to be sure I made my bus: and also kept my bag for me while I was in Nikko for three days so that I could travel light with just a backpack. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

"great hotel with friendly staff"
The hotel rooms can be considered small by some, but for me it was perfectly fine, besides your on vacation you shouldnt be spending all your time cooped up in a hotel room watching TV! The staff I had the most interaction with was their english speaking gentleman. He was very polite and really helpful with all of my questions. The Onsen or public bath is small but most of the time I was completely alone in there. My only gripe was with one of the other staff members (not the friendly one i talked about earlier) two of my friends came over my hotel room around 6pm to change into our night clothes (we were going out to dinner) and he basically started scolding me about having guest over in my room. anyways, overall I liked the hotel and would recommend it. P.S order a massage if you got the money its well worth it!

"A Micro-Hotel Gem near Ochanomizu Station"
This hotel mainly caters to Japanese in the midst of travel, it seems, but if you have the will to eat a simple Japanese breakfast and give up on the concept of a room having to be big to be comfortable, it's an amazing value. Yes the room was microscopic, but the futon was comfortable, the bath/toilet room had everything it needed, and the internet was free and abundant. The best part was the dedicated staff and community bath in the basement that had ample room for washing and soaking in some lovely hot water.

Lovely hotel. Staff made it a true pleasure to stay here. - they were wonderfully helpful about holding onto our luggage when we checked in early. Breakfast was excellent. Good WiFi as well. It was more of a business hotel than a couples' hotel, but we were very comfortable and found the business amenities helpful in planning the rest of our trip. Laundry facilities were available, as well as other useful travel services. Would absolutely stay here again. Not difficult to reach the metro station, it's just around the corner and very handy to the city.

"Best hotel ever"
Absolutely loved my stay at Ochanomizu Hotel Shoryukan. The service is impeccable - the staff give personal attention to each customer like a well-run family inn and yet it has the amenities and reliability of large chain hotel. The sento (public bath) and massage chairs (all free!) are also a welcomed respite after a long day of sightseeing. The location in terms of proximity to key subway/JR lines are great. All the key places like Shinjuku or Tokyo are just about 20 minutes away. However, the hotel itself can be a bit hard to find for first timers. I highly recommend you Google Streetview the place before you arrive. The rooms are quite small but it's very well furnished. The Japanese-styled beds are surprisingly comfortable too. If you like jazz, there is an awesome jazz bar in the hotel itself with the nicest owner ever. He let me pick out my favorite records and played it for me. I highly, highly recommend this place!

"호텔 이용 후기"
도착하자마자 직원분이 환영해주셨다. 일본어를 잘 못했지만 직원분이 어느정도 영어가 가능해서 큰 불편함은 없었다. 방을 안내해주시며 짐을 방까지 옮겨주셔서 고마웠다. 객실도 깨끗했고 큰 객실은 아니었지만 혼자쓰기 적절한 크기였다. 아침밥도 맛있었고 특히 바로 해주는 계란이 좋았다. (계란은 프라이, 스크램블에그, 날달걀 등 정할 수 있었음) 대욕탕도 무료로 이용 가능해서 피로를 풀기 좋았다. 목적지인 아키바까지 걸어서 10분~15분 정도 걸려서 놀러가기 아주 좋았다. 근처에 지하철역도 있었지만 걸어서 가는게 더 좋아서 계속 걸어다녔다. 첫 일본 여행이었는데 좋은 호텔을 숙소로 정해서 여행이 더욱 즐거울 수 있었던것 같다.

I stayed only one night, just wanna try traditional room style. What I expected was just nice room but what I met was much more than that. Room was fabulous. Every staff were fantastic, kind, smile, helpful, service-mined. I asked way to train station, one of staff led us to front of the hotel and pointed the way clearly. After checked in we went out, when we came back staff had prepared Tokyo Guide Book in my language along with Japanese souvenir. I've never met such a warm welcome like this before. Only one not good thing was I was lost finding the hotel. We will suggest this hotel to our friends for sure.

방의 크기는 여행 전에 생각했던 것보다 작았습니다. 하지만 제 여행에 방해를 끼치지는 않았으므로, 불편하다거나 나쁘다고는 생각한 적은 없습니다. 일부러 다다미방을 선택해서 들어갔는데, 여름이라 그런지 객실에 들어가자마자 편하게 앉을 수 있는 점이 좋았습니다. 위치에 대해서는 심사숙고한 끝에 정한 것이라 따로 얘기하지는 않겠습니다. 다만 JR 오챠노미즈역에서 처음 들어오기에는 헤매실 수도 있습니다. 특별한 야외활동때문에 얼음물이 많이 필요했는데, 냉동고가 따로 없지만 직원께서 친절하게 도와주셨습니다, 그게 제일 좋았습니다.

"Je recommande fortement cet hôtel !!"
Super séjour de 2 nuits dans cet hôtel dans une chambre de style japonais. Un yukata et des chaussons sont mis à disposition dans la chambre. Le personnel est adorable, très accueillant, parle anglais. Le petit déjeuner japonais est simple mais bon (riz, soupe miso, œufs préparés à la demande, condiments, un mini plat comme une bouchée au poulet et légumes, café, thé vert), la salle ambiance jazz (déco et musique) est sympa et agréable. Ne pas hésiter à essayer les "furikake" , assaisonnement pour le riz en sachet. Jus d'orange sur demande. Prêt d'un parapluie pour la journée, ce qui peut s'avérer utile. Salle de bain de petite taille mais normale pour le japon. Je me suis sentie comme chez moi, le lit futon était très confortable. Restos sympas et abordables à proximité, indiqués par le personnel. Un family Mart tout près. 3 stations de métro assez proches. En résumé j'ai adoré !!! Je serais bien restée une semaine. Il est certain que je réserverai à nouveau cet hôtel si je retourne à Tokyo.

This is a very comfortable hotel and i'll be happy to stay here again. It does not purport to be an International style hotel and is the better for it. The rooms are quiet and well appointed. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful in every way. The Japanese breakfast was an excellent way to begin the day. This hotel is a great introduction to Japan.I can find no fault with it.

"Great price, decent location. Tried a Japanese style room for the 1st time"
08/18/15 Jaenica L Fussa, Tokyo, Japan
Got this place b'cuz it was only a couple of train stops away from an event I was going to. Also offered a Japanese style room which I always wanted to try, for a price that didn't break my wallet. Decent location from Tokyo & Akihabara, but is a bit of a walk from the Ochanomizu train station, about 8minutes. It's ok if you're traveling light but I bought a few things so had to push a big luggage back up to catch my train to the airport. Room of course was fairly small but that's to be expected from Japan. I've stayed in smaller. Was still able to fit my large luggage & hand-carry. They had a public bath but I couldn't try it out because of my tattoo :( Decent food places to eat nearby. Staff was very helpful & friendly. The only thing that was a bit annoying is when you go out you have to leave your room key at the front desk. I was constantly in & out of the place so it was give me my key, here's the key, give me my key, here's the key. Nothing to troublesome it's just the staff saw me alot & at odd hours.

had a possibility with my wife to stay here for 4 nights in one standart room on 2nd floor. room we had was very basic, very small, with also small bathroom. room had also a window faced a small street. very basic but you get what you psy for, so we were not surrprised. solid value for money. hotel has also onzen facility just to relax after running trough streets of the city. hotel located close to subway, JR railways stations in quiet neighbourhood but with plenty of different bars and small food stores as Lawson or 7eleven. worth to visit if you are not planning to spend to much money on hotels. breakfast was included into the price but it is in japenese style so for those who like to start the day with miso, rice and fermented soya etc. :)

"Very good hotel for a good price"
04/15/15 Darkelve7 Bern, Switzerland
I have been in this hotel twice, once with my friend at the beginning of our journey and once alone at the end of the same journey, 3 weeks later (April 2014, which I couldn't select at "time of travel". Seems like I'm a little late...). When I was there with my friend, we had a western style twin room. For Japanese standards the room was quite spacious. It had a bathroom (with a sink and a modern toilet/washlet) and a separate shower in the corridor of the main room (glass door, so nothing for shy people). Both bathroom and shower were comfortable and easy to use. Sometimes we heard other guest talking in the hallway, but I think they were just really loud. All in all, a very good room. The second time (alone), I decided to take a Japanese style room. Of course this one was rather small, but adequate. The bathroom wasn't as nice as in the other room (small room with toilet, sink and bathtub/shower, a lot of plastik). The wifi-connection was alright (in the Japanese style room it was sometimes a little bit of an issue, since I was at the end of a corridor where the signal apparently didn't reach very well). The public bath is very nice and good for people who are not used to Japanese baths (the water isn't too hot, which in turn might be an issue if you're used to warmer/hot water). The staff was very friendly and helpful. As I dyed my hair just before we went to Japan, I took my own towel to dry my hair without discolouring hotel towels. Sadly, it had almost the same colour as the hotel towels and was therefore mistakenly taken by the cleaning staff. When I asked about it at the reception, they did their best to find it again, but when it was clear that they wouldn't find it, they gave me an apology present (which wasn't necessary, but very sweet). They also made a reservation for me in a restaurant when I asked about a good Okonomiyaki restaurant. All in all, very friendly and helpful staff! The location is good. Akihabara is quite near (walking distance approx. 15 minutes) and it has a lot of shopping opportunities, especially for sports stuff, as well as some good restaurants (if you like Ramen, you really need to try the restaurant つじ田 "Tsujida" in Awajicho!) about 5 minutes from the hotel.

"I'm a Repeat Customer"
10/11/14 Paul7878 San Francisco, California
I found this hotel in 2011 and I chose it because of its location and it has a public bath. (I also like the Ochanomizu area because it is so close to Tokyo Station. See my other reviews.) It's within a seven minute walk to several subway lines and the JR station. It is nestled in a really quiet neighborhood. The area is a mix of colleges, commercial, office, medical-related, and residential. The area is really a hodge-podge of uses. Four convenience stores are within a 5-minute walk. There are a few restaurants in the area, but I haven't tried any of them. They all seem to close by 10. Because of the multiple uses, the streets are very, very quiet on weekend evenings. About a third of the staff speaks good English, which is a plus for first-timers to Japan. One negative: the breakfast stays the same every day. The only variation between each day's breakfast is how the egg is cooked (scrambled, over-easy, omelette-style) and the different type of "furikake" (rice seasoning).

08/22/14 DavidElie Seminyak, Indonesia
Shoryukan is a hotel mainly visited by Japanese businessmen (at least while we were there). We opted for a Japanese tatami room with futon beds and we really had a great time. Try it out even if you may find it a bit hard to sleep on. Japanese breakfast was included in room price: it was very good. The staff is awesome: very friendly, good English and always there to help. We even received small presents upon departure.

We stayed here with our two children. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Each time they saw the children they had lovely origami and sweets for them. They assisted us greatly with restaurant recommendations and also providing maps and directions to get to the places we wanted to go. We chose a Japanese room, it was very tiny but we enjoyed the experience. The bathroom is lovely very clean and modern. Our room was a smoking room and we don't smoke but air freshener was provided. I left my booking till very late and no non smoking rooms were available. The breakfast room is very inviting and it was interesting to try the Japanese breakfast. The staff again are very attentive and helpful. Overall I found the hotel very good value for money, there is a laundry which was very handy after a couple of weeks travelling. The location was great too, very central for all areas of Tokyo.

"Good value for money"
06/23/14 TomIvanka Prague
Plus: Nice and clean spa. Friendly staff. Fast and free wi-fi. Location near to Yasukuni Shrine and some metro lines (relatively close to Ginza etc.). Good value for money. Con: My wife complained about smelling weird smell (combined smoking and cooking?) every day in the halls. We were also not very keen on rather basic Japanese breakfast (not a big deal though) and a plain decoration of the room (just mentioning it for others who might find beige-brown-black as main colors a bit depressing). The hotel is rather hard to find, esp. after the dark. On our first evening, we had to ask a police officer at Koban to help us find the place. But we did not have any problems to locate the place once we knew where it was.
