"Quiet area of Tokyo"
I only stayed one night, but I found this area quiet. No trains to be heard. Just cars driving by. The lady at the front desk who checked me in was friendly and helpful. She gave me a map of the area of things to do, train stations, and even told me where the convenience store was. She even helped me by bringing my suitcase to my room.

"Good choice for Tokyo."
Very convenient to get to from Narita using Keisei Skyliner to Nippori station, then a 10 minute walk to Katsutaro. There are places to eat and shop in the Yanaka area if you want to take a break from the hoards of people in other parts of Tokyo.

"Ryokan in Tokyo"
It is good to be able to stay in a traditional ryokan in modern city Tokyo. Staying in a ryokan is a genuine Japanese experience that all travelers to Japan should try. Annex Katsutaro Ryokan is easily reached from the nearby subway station via walking through an older neighborhood.

"Wonderful ryokan in Tokyo in great neighborhood"
This was our third trip to Japan and Tokyo. This was our best stay so far- the ryokan proprietor and staff are all very helpful, non-smoking, and have thought out many details needed by travelers. The area is full of interesting sites within walking distance- the loop bus is across the street from the ryokan and can get you easy access to the Ueno zoo. If traveling to and from the Narita airport- the loop bus can get you to the Keisei ueno stop and it's a short walk to the new Keisei skyliner. The ryokan was clean, well laid out, and information about the loop bus was placed by the front door for easy access. The proprietor has a wonderful area map that is incredibly useful for walking the neighborhood. We have a family of four and the room for four was spacious and well laid out. One thing to note is that Japanese silk doesn't always hold up to multiple visitors so there were some stains on the walls here and there- to be expected but just so folks know. We loved our stay and will stay here again.

"Excellent home base in Tokyo"
Could not have been happier with our Annex Katsutaro Ryokan week-long stay! A perfect home base in Tokyo! We chose Yanaka neighborhood for its proximity to Charming walks, Ueno Park & convenient Metro & JR stations. Mieko-san & staff took lovely care of us, providing spotless affordable tatami room with private bath, also laundry machines, countless maps to navigate Tokyo, and assistance with directions, luggage Takubin & tasty friendly local dining. I will recommend this ryokan Highly to economy minded travellers who want a pristine & Kind home base in artistic historic Yanaka-Ueno, with excellent access to all of Tokyo.

It is a mix of western with Japanese. The room was some sort of plain in Japanese style. I was curious to be in that kind of hotel and I don't regret it. The best part was the neighborhood, it was typical Japanese with ordinary people around.

A really nice stay in this Ryokan. The area of Yanaka has an easy access thanks to the loop JR rail line, the area itself is really typical, no building, little shops and great temple to visit. The hotel itself is great : we had a huge room for a family of 4 people, very clear and calm. we appreciate the laundry access too and the free access to wifi

"Ryokan in charming neighbourhood"
Cosy ryokan in the middle of a charming neighbourhood. Just a few minutes' walk from Nippori station for Narita airport and Yamanote line, or Sendagi Tokyo Metro station. Plenty of shops; the main shopping street closes early though so plan your time accordingly. Futon was comfortable, though it could do with slightly more thickness. Otherwise, nothing to complain about really.

It was my first time in Japan, and they were really close to Tokyo subway, I had bought the 3 day pass so it was extremely convenient. Great place to stay really comfy and clean rooms and they were really nice and the customer service was a great plus in my case they even sent me an e-mail giving me directions to the hotel from the metro station. Next trip to japan I'm coming back to this place.

"Conveniently located"
The feedback by previous reviewers were accurate so no nasty surprise. I think sleeping on the futons takes some getting used to as they are rather thin and you can feel the floor. Having said that, it was still a novel experience. Location wise, it's really good especially since the Nippori station of the Yamanote line is at most 10 mins walk away, direct connection to Narita airport and popular places like Tsukiji, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for reasonably priced accommodation at a good location.

Ett fantastiskt roykan i ett mysigt område (Yanaka). Rummet är spartanskt och avskalat och vi tyckte det var så avkopplande och fint. Två madrasser, fräsch toalett och allrum. Vi saknade ingenting alls. Personalen är så vänliga och är så mån om att du som gäst ska trivas. Läget är super, närområdet är mysigt och har massor av restauranger och butiker. Rekommenderas starkt!

Lo mejor de este hotel es la hubicacion, el personal es muy amable y pueden entenderte en inglés aunque el tuyo no sea muy bueno, la habitación cumple las necesidades, sólo algo pequeña pero esta muy bien considerando que es un Ryokan. Ideal como un hotel para dormir y el resto del día andar turisteando. Yo lo recomendaría ampliamente por su precio y su hubicacion.

여관형태를 띄고 있으나 좁은건 어쩔수 없는듯. 위치는 닛포리역에서 가깝다고 하기보다는 센다기역에 가깝고, 내부는 괜찮았음. 단점이라면, 호텔스닷컴에는 흡연방으로 예약하였으나, 전체 금연룸으로 바뀐지 오래.. 미리 공지를 하던가 업데이트가 필요한듯.

"가격대비 안락하지 못함"
원래 할인가격이라고 해서 10만원 근처였는데 부가세 및 아이추가에 따라 13만원 가까이 나왔다. 원래 가격보다 30%나 추가된가격이라 솔직히 이돈주고 자야되나 싶었지만 그냥 숙소에 머무르기로 했다. 숙소에 지내면서 느낀점은 덥다는것이다. 2층에서 지내다 보니 주위가 가로막혀 다소 덥다는 느낌을 많이 받아 에어컨을 틀고잤는데 에어컨 사용으로 인해 건조함때문에 목이 아파왔다. 아이가 추가됐음에도 2인 BED를 제공하여 잠자리 또한 편안하지 않았던 내용이었다. 지리적인 위치만 좋았던 내용임.
