"Wonderful little gem"
We stayed here for 5 nights and our stay was very comfortable. We stayed in a twin room with 2 beds and an ensuite sink. There was a shared shower and bathroom. Which was never a problem because they staff were always on top of cleaning the showers once someone used it. Never had to wait to use the bathroom or the shower. They had a coin laundry which […] was very convenient. They staff were so nice and very helpful! Ota, Oda, and Jiro made our stay very comfortable, treated us like old friends! We used the pottery bath one night and that was a real pleasure. Hot steaming bath was very nice and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing and traveling. The Inn is close to the train station and the trains can be heard throughout the night, but it never bothered us. The only thing that was negative was that it was a little difficult to find the Inn when we first arrived. It's tucked away down a little alleyway. But otherwise we would absolutely stay here again. It was such a gem to find this little place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean hostel, friendly staff"
The hostel is very good value for money, very clean and has a typical Japanese feel. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly although not all of them speak English. The rooms are very basic and mattresses are quite hard. It is located near a train station, restaurants and supermarkets. However due to its location to the train station, the noise […] of the trains may be a problem for light sleepers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service, very clean"
The Inn is a very good value for money accommodation, extremely clean and friendly. Very helpful staff, although not all of them speak English. It is located very close to the station, supermarkets and eateries (we loved breakfast at the Denny's), but you can hear the noise from the trains at night, which may be an issue for light sleepers. The mattresses […] are quite hard, and rooms quite basic, but there is the nice Japanese feel about this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice boutique hotel close to JR Minamisenju"
We received a warm welcome from the hotel staff on the first day we arrived in Tokyo. We had a good time trying the Japanese style bath to relax the body tired after walking around Tokyo. No regret to stay at this hotel. Thanks to the hotel manager, Shimpei Ota to ensure the hotel is well managed and serve all the good things to customers. He is a very […] good man and english speaking. Gambateh! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and cosy"
Clean and cosy inn, though can be a little noisy with the trains and not the most central location. Still recommend it based on price & very helpful staff who are fluent in EnglishGenuine Hotels.com guest review
L excellence de cette hôtel réside dans le bain japonais la proximité des transport les chambres propres et les parties communes ainsi que le service. Par contre ce qui est pas top s est de s endormir et se réveiller avec le bruit du train ayant un sommeil très léger cela m a un peu perturbeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excelente localização, funcionários solicitos e gentis, muito limpo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Parfait petit hotel"
Superbe petit hotel au nord est de Tokyo (station Minami-Senju). Le quartier est très bien deservi par trois métros (dont un JR). L'hotel est dans un style ryokan, mais certaines chambres proposent également un lit à l'occidental.L'accueil est parfait, on se sent très vite les bienvenus, et le très gentil patron adore s'entraîner à parler français. […] Probablement un des meilleurs rapports qualité prix que vous pouvez trouver à Tokyo, avec la gentillesse et le traditionnel en bonus. N'hesitez pas à reserver !

南千住から徒歩数分、ちょっと判り難いですから、予め十分に地図をチェックしておいた方が良いでしょう。今回の部屋はツインの布団があるアウトバスでした。それ程広くはありませんが、内部は清潔で落ちついた感じです。浴衣・コーヒー・ドライヤー・洗面台・タオル類はありますが歯ブラシはありません。シャワー室が外にありますが、清潔で湯量も十分、シャンプーやボディソープが備えられています。ちょっとした談話室が一階ギャラリーに隣接してあって、新聞・PC、朝はフリーのコーヒーもありました。スタッフの方も適度にビジネスライクで好感が持てます。有料（¥300）のお風呂は使いませんでした、すぐ近くにコンビニがあります。このコストで泊まれるなら、とてもお勧めの宿だと思います。南千住は地下鉄日比谷線で都心にも直結してますから […] 。 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very authentic place and original, It provides the opportunity to live in traditional japanese home. The experience in the bath is exceptional, don't hesitate to book for one hour for only 300 y. The staff are more than Professional, discrete and very helpful. I will come on again. I recommend strongly this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bon rapport qualité-prix"
Excellente adresse, quoique un peu décentrée par rapport à certains quartiers comme Shibuya ou Shinjuku. L'avantage est qu'il est facile de rejoindre la ligne Yamanote en passant par la station Nippori. Situé très proche de la station de métro Minami-Senju (200 m). Les chambres sont petites et il n'est pas possible d'avoir 2 valises ouvertes en même […] temps.Service très sympathique et efficace. Très joli lobby avec tout l'équipement nécessaire.

Our family had 2 rooms at Chiyoda Inn in late February 2014. While the rest of Tokyo was suffering a cold snap, we felt very warm and welcome by Shimpei and the other staff. We and our 2 adult children loved the place, spotless, quiet, comfortable and only a 2 minute walk through a quiet neighborhood to the railway station. Wanting to experience the culture, we chose the rooms with the sleeping mats, rather than beds, and were very happy with our sleep. You can hear the trains going past in the morning, but by then it's time to get up anyway! (the kids didn't hear a thing). Shimpei is great, fantastic English skills, and happy to help understand the area. We spent 4 days exploring Tokyo, and only scratched the surface, but Chiyoda Inn was a great base for us to come home to each night. We would not hesitate to stay here again. At Shimpei's suggestion, e ate dinner one night at a local restaurant (I unfortunately did not write down the name, but it was a couple of blocks West, across the road from 7/11), the food was great, and we had a great time attempting to communicate with the lady who runs the place, and her guests. Oh, also, the rates are amazing for Tokyo.

For us we found it to be small but that is to be expected for Tokyo. Service was great, very helpful. Location is good, very easy to jump on the metro to see all the sites. Our only complaint was that there were flys coming out the sink of our en suite bathroom but when we told the staff they cleaned it immediately.
"A Gem: Why stay in "Times Square" when you can stay in cute residential neighborhood?"
07/29/13 JLEIMY New York City, New York
I can not say enough good things about this Ryokan. First off, this place wouldn't be what it is without Shimpei, the Inn's Manager. He is an awesome guy. Very knowledgable about Tokyo and speaks great English. Jiro, who also works there, is very helpful as well. What I loved about Chiyoda Inn as a female solo traveler: ~Location is away from all the touristy areas. Nice to stay in a Japanese residential neighborhood. ~Close to all types of transportation. Easy ride from Narita. ~Many Japanese guests, not just foreigners. ~Shimpei put a video on their website for how to get to the inn from train stations (awesome!) ~Rooms are affordable, large, clean, mini fridge is major plus. ~ A great grocery store,a convenient store, a post office - all close by. What more could you need? oH YA, FREE WIFI!
"My second time in 2 yrs :)"
05/31/13 crazyglobetrotter Palermo, Italy
Yes i came back to this Ryokan a second time: not only because it's cheap among the tokyo hotels but mostly because of the following reasons: 1) The staff is awesome, nice, english speaker, always ready to help 2) The rooms are Japanese style with a comfty futon and with a fridge and A/C 3) the showers and toilets are super clean and stylish 4) the area is a growing area of tokyo with lots of good traditional restaurants (no english there) where you can find cheap and good food. 5) the JR station is at 2minutes walk from the ryokan and it's placed in a silent and quiet side street so japanese and lovely that it look like it's took out of a cartoon I could continue but i think this 5 points are enough right? So Chiyoda inn 4ever ;)
"Charming guesthouse in a convenient location"
05/27/13 JennJett Melbourne, Australia
This was the second time I stayed at Chiyoda Inn as a lone traveller. A short walk from Minamisenju Station (close to Nippori, on the main Yamanote loop and easily accessible from Narita airport) it's ideal for the solo traveller who enjoys guesthouses that are a bit more peaceful than your average backpacker dorm. The atmosphere at Chiyoda is charming, it is ryokan style and they pay close attention to detail to make it feel like you're staying at someone's house. The rooms are very clean and the place even has a ceramic bath to replicate the onsen experience - perfect for sore feet after a day walking around the city. The guesthouse is also close to many restaurants and supermarkets which makes it very convenient. The neighbourhood may not be in the heart of Tokyo, but being so close to a central JR station and two subway lines, it's a still good location especially for those who want to see Asakusa or those who want an easy journey from the airport. Some people commented that it's hard to find, but after reading the instructions on the website I found it easy as pie as it's literally two minutes from the station. I recommend this place to travelers who want to maintain a sense of privacy and tranquility whilst still on a budget.
"A friendly first stop in Japan"
04/09/13 ianisalifestyle Brisbane, Australia
We wanted to stay in a ryokan, and Chiyoda Inn ticked the boxes, close to Minimasenju station, and therefore only a couple of stops (with a train change) from Narita. Not speaking Japanese, I'd used google maps to locate us; a short, clear path from the station. We arrived the night of a massive storm and google maps wasn't sensitive to the back lane we needed to take. But a customer at the local 7-11 showed us the amazing Japanese hospitality by leading us the last few metres himself. The Ryokan was neat and clean, and the houserobes a welcome change after the flight and rain. There is train noise, but it soon passes from attention. We had a room overlooking the cemetery that was previously the Kozukappara execution grounds (Tripadvisor's local 'things to do' and much more charming than it sounds). We've stayed in more upmarket places since, by the Choyoda Inn wins for effort and friendliness. There's also an art gallery housed in the Inn.
"A warm, intimate place close to a JR train station. Very friendly and helpful staff"
04/09/13 Noa E Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, Israel
We really enjoyed our stay, the rooms are Japanese style (sleeping on the flour and rather small), yet bigger than in other places at the same price, you get clean and comfy towels and Japanese bathrobes everyday, free wi-fi and computers..small kitchenette and sitting area. We actually wanted to prolong our stay there but they didn't have a room... A place i would definitely go back to!

Just spent a week at Chiyoda Inn, which is just an incredible place to stay in Tokyo. There are so many pros and a very few cons. So here are the pros: It's super cosy. With just a dozen rooms, the place feels like a private home. The building itself is rather old, but all the interiors must have been completely rebuilt less than two years ago. Even though I had a room with a shared bath, there was never a time I had to wait for the restroom or a shower. Everything is kept spotlessly clean. There is a traditional Japanese bath, which you can take for 300 yen or for free if you fill out their survey. They also have a washer and dryer on the second floor. There was a small fridge and an electric tea kettle in my room, which made my stay much more convenient. The innkeeper was always very helpful and accommodating. He and all other staff I've met speak good English and are always eager to help. To make things even better, they have their very own art gallery on the first floor, which had a new exhibition opening on the day I left. There is a 7-11 store just around the corner and a large shopping center with plenty of stores and restaurants is within 10 minutes walking. Minami-senju metro station is 5 minutes away too. What are the cons? Well, you have to take metro to get anywhere. But let's be honest, Tokyo is a huge city, so no matter where you stay, you will always have to take metro to many places you'd want to visit. Speaking of metro and other trains, yes, you do hear them quite well, but they stop running at night, so trains didn't worry me at all.
"Good in all respects except train noise - not good for sleep for me"
03/29/13 alwaysunderway Hong Kong
I agree with other reviews here and came here based on reviews on tripadvisor but I am surprised more people have not mentioned the extreme noise of the frequent trains. The good: everything is very clean; location is near Hibiya-line and JR, which is very convenient; showers very good; clean towels every day; room made up nicely; big enough room; basin in room; computers to use; can make hot drinks; water in room free; nice building; reasonable price; Japanese bath (but my experience is you have to book 3 days in advance to get decent time). The bad: Toyko is generally a quiet city if you compare it with eg HK, and the area is quiet as there is no traffic noise from cars as it is on a small lane, BUT the building is Japanese style, which means thin walls and the train is extremely noisy. It starts about 5am and ends after 12.30am. There are numerous trains ALL that time. Personally I have never slept in such a noisy place. I asked before coming for a room as quiet as possible but was put in room on noisier side with no chance to move. First night I got almost no sleep at all. Bed is futon, and whilst I like futon some would find it a bit hard. If you stay, try for room away from train side although both sides are noisy as the trains are so loud and close. Unfortunate about noise as otherwise I would highly recommend this place, but due to this, I could not. If noise does not worry you, then it is a very nice place.
"Wonderful experience in this Japanese guesthouse."
03/16/13 MaryMargaretNZ Wellington, New Zealand
This is a small, immaculate Japanese-style guesthouse, very very close to transit. They have western-style and Japanese rooms, a few with ensuite. We had a western room without ensuite, but sharing was no problem at all. The loos and showers were spotless (and clearly checked on constantly, as we never found the shower room even damp), and our room was likewise immaculate. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming despite some language barriers. We were given lots of information (including maps and emailed links to a video of the route from the train to the inn), and there were lots of nice touches, like a variety of candy showing up in our room each day, and being given small chocolate cakes on our first morning downstairs. It is traditional, in that the Japanese style bath requires showering first, the dining table seating is on cushions, and shoes are not worn indoors (in fact, if you carry your shoes to your room, you are given a bag for them, lest they touch the floor). The bath experience (it needs to be booked in advance) was a particular delight. Rooms had a kettle and tea and a small fridge and we were given bottles of water in the mornings. The neighbourhood contains many small restaurants, and grocery and convenience stores, as well as a few American chains by the train (Dennys, McD's, BK). Since the inn is so close to three train lines, it is very noisy, however the trains stop from midnight until 5am, which is a blessing! It's not in the centre of Tokyo (but Tokyo's attractions are scattered over a wide area, so no hotel is central to everything.) However, the location next to the 3 train lines meant that getting anywhere on Tokyo's complicated subway system was very easy and required minimal transfers. Getting there from the airport was very easy. I highly recommend this charming place for those who would like an experience of real Japan for their stay.
