"Neat little Inn"
The lobby area is really neat and Japenese style. The staff was very friendly and had our bags waiting in our room later since we got there too early to check in. We chose a traditional Japanese style room. It smelled a little funny to me, but after staying in different places with tatami mats, i realized that they just have a unique odor. Not bad, […] but just different. The inn was close to the train station and i would not hesitate to stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Station, Excellent staff"
Great staff, he cares about the people that stay there and offers as much as he can. Rooms were clean and the showers were nice. Free Internet and computers for use. the best deal for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful service, cozy hotel"
5 minute walk from a JR and tsukuba express station, supermarket that's open until 1am, a few late night restaurants, a shopping mall and 24h dennys. The inn itself is very nice and cozy and the staff is so kind. The ryokan bath is very nice, but the only thing I would comment on is that you can hear some trains, which bothered my partner, as well as […] the futon (but to be fair, this was his first real futon experience, I had no problems with either). Otherwise, hotel was perfect and I highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall experience is excellent as sparkling clean. However hard to find the hotel even direction is given as the hotel sign in english is very small. We cjeck out at 1.30pm and was charged extra for late check out. I was not told of this when we checked in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in quiet area of Tokyo"
I and my girlfriend had a great stay at Chiyoda Inn. Although the hotel isn't located in the heart of Tokyo, nearness to the train station is the key. It took me only 3 mins to walk to Minami-Senju train station where you're connected to JR line and other Tokyo's subways. Also, a number of restaurants are around there. The front staff are helpful and […] quite knowledgeable and their English is pretty good compared to other Japanese. The room is very clean, as well as the whole building. You can smell the new as soon as you step in. Other thing I like about this hotel is it doesn't have a lot of people stay in, which made us feel like the whole floor belong to us.

Really close to a subway station though it was hard to find. We had to ask some 711 cashiers to help us find it. Once we were there, it was great! Good service. There is noise from the train nearby but they don't run too late so it wasn't a problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous traditional Japanese Inn"
I travelled with my mother and we were both looking for an authentic experience in Japan on a budget. I stumbled across Chiyoda Inn and it seemed to tick all the boxes. Our experience exceeded our expectations. The inn was small, homely, welcoming and incredibly clean. Though the bathroom facilities are shared they were cleaned early every morning and […] we barely stumbled across other guests. Our room was additionally fitted with a small fridge, kettle, hair dryer and a sink which was an unexpected bonus. The staff were friendly, English speaking and obliging and very helpful pointing out good local places to eat. Fresh towels and sheets whenever you would like. There is a small lounge area with television and computers and kitchenette and traditional dining table. Free access to wi-fi was included. Close to minami-senju station on the Joban JR line, or the HIbiya Tokyo Metro line as well as additional bus services to Tokyo station that run through Asakusa, it's very easy to navigate around. Absolutely charming and have come home with many treasured memories and hope to go back soon! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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

The Inn is a very good value for money accommodation, extremely clean and friendly. Very helpful staff, although not all of them speak English.

"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.

"We Love it"
We took less than 1hr from Narita Airport to Minami-Senju (taking Skyliner service and transferred to JR line at Nippori station). Chiyoda Inn is about 3 minutes walk distance from the Minami-Senju Rail station; It's quickly and easily take us into the greater Tokyo area (using Tokyo Metro or JR Service) due to the inn was quiet, so may hear the sound […] of the train passed. It is a Japanese Style Ryokan, Price appropriate accommodation, nice, clean and comfortable with cordial and attentive service, meet the general needs. Also we saw individual Japanese business man or business woman likes to stay for a night. There are few fast food places, convenience stores, supermarkets and different style restaurants around this area. Overall, it's feel like back to parents house, We Love it, We will go there every time when we in Tokyo! Read moreGenuine 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.

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

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).

"Second time stay at Chiyoda Inn"
01/02/15 Quack H HONG KONG
The first time I stayed was in 2012 when it was new (was open in 2011, I suppose). Second stay was this time in Dec, 2014. Good quality maintened but of course as time goes by, can't help aging which is normal. Keeping up with good standard in the hospitality and cleaniness of the inn. Good to meet other travellers in the common area and to chat with the Shimpei san (his friends and family came to help with the New Year deco the other day when I was in the inn) which is very nice, you have a feel of them preparing for the festive season.
"One word: cockroaches"
10/20/14 Angela_in_Vancouver Vancouver, BC
I really wanted to like this place. I really did. There are so many great reviews here. I feel almost bad for writing an average review. The location is awesome. It's a very short walk to the metro station. There's no shortage of western (burger king, denny's) and local restaurants close by. The staff is friendly and speaks proficient English. The traditional bath is really nice and very reasonable at 300yen per hour. They fill the bath for you, so it's ready at your allotted time. There's coin laundry and dryer. Sweet. They can even sell you laundry detergent. The futons were ready for us when we arrived. The small room is also equipped with a mini fridge, a desk/chair, and a wash basin. All good. What made this place "average" for me are the cockroaches. The first night there, I saw a cockroach on the ceiling. 10 minutes later, I saw that same cockroach running towards my 2-year-old daughter. My daughter was sitting on the tatami. The cockroach ran under the legs. I tried not to freak out. I push my daughter out of the way, grabbed a magazine and hit the roach a few times until it died. Cockroaches are gross, dirty, and creepy. This wasn't some tiny baby cockroach. It was at least 2 inches long. The next night, as I was walking towards the washroom, I saw another cockroach scurry across the floor, into another guest room. I just prayed it won't come into our room. Now, granted, maybe cockroaches are very common in Tokyo in October. I don't know that, and I really don't care to know. All I worried about the whole time staying there was cockroaches crawling over us. That really put a damper on things.

Nice place to stay and very near to Jr Minami-senju station.I really appreciate all staff at Chiyoda Inn, service mind and very kind of them. I stay here two periods. I leave my luggage here and when I'm back, my luggage is already in the room. Supermarket is near the hotel. I'll be back for sure. ;)

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 Brodie T 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.
