"Beautiful hotel in real neighborhood...."
Stayed for four nights in a traditional Japanese room. Everything was perfect, from beginning-to-end...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a wonderful hotel to stay in. It is wonderfully managed with a friendly, helpful staff. The location is ideal because it is 1. quiet 2. close to the subway 3. close to all the Ueno Park and Yanaka attractions. Best of all it is a gorgeous place to stay. If arriving in Japan for the first time, I recommend this hotel as it will immerse you in […] the culture and yet enable you to feel comfortable. Hotel is stunningly clean, beautiful and efficient. Many thanks! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The best hotel I've ever stayed in!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, quiet, very clean hotel, but very basic"
Hotel is clean throughout, the stuff is very nice and helpful, breakfast is good. Our room (6 tatami) and the bathroom were tiny-tiny. Sleeping on the floor turned out to be a bigger challenge than I thought - good experience, but I won't try in again :) I was uncomfortable, and had asked for a second mattress - it helped somewhat. Didn't take advantage […] of the tee ceremony, as we were normally out by 8 - 9 am. If I am in Tokyo again I would get into a more expensive hotel with a larger room and closer to the metro station.

Loved experiencing the traditional Japanese room. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The traditional tea ceremony was great as well. Not prime location but close to train stationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Best ryokan I stayed at in Japan! Staff are so friendly, room was clean & easy to get around from here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
THIS could be one of the neatest hotel experiences I've had! The rooms were superbly clean, the staff went out of their way to make the stay an enjoyable as possible, and the free morning tea ceremony and baths are an added bonus. Sleeping in the Japanese-style room was unlike anything either of us had experienced before. You can also request a western […] room if tatami floors aren't your thing. We were moved rooms after our first night's stay, but they were nice enough to comp us a bath for our inconvenience (which wasn't inconvenient at all, as they moved all of our bags for us). Be sure to book a bath after a long day of walking. This is an incredible hotel and I plan on returning in the future. Well worth every penny. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Little Gem!!!"
It can be a little difficult to find the first time, apart from that this hotel is a great little gem! It has both ryokan style room and normal hotel style room. I chosed the normal room because my wife is pregnant and I didn't know if ryokan style bed would be comfortable enough for her. We both regretted it when we see how nice the ryokan style room […] is. Would have been a great experience. The hotel also offer free "tea ceremony" for those who is interested in Japanese tea culture. The closes station Iriya is about 2 minutes walk, but this is operated by Hibiya. The larger Ueno station is about 15 minutes walk. Service and cleanliness are excellent.

"Be aware of the futon."
Ok this hotel is lovely and the lady who manages it is so friendly and helpful, my only issue is the futon on the floor - being a 6ft 6 westerner heavily built it was really not the best nights sleep it can also feel a bit like a squat. Breakfast very good and very close to underground.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A cosy hotel you don't want to misd"
Very comfortable. Though a little hard to find at first but once you find it, very accessible and near to a metro station. Great value, Great Price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cosy and authentic"
Stayed at the Edo Sakura for 5 nights in one of their Japanese Tatami-style rooms. As expected, the room was small but clean and cosy! I thought I was going to get a backache sleeping on the floor but to my surprised, I didn't. Still, it would be nice if the mattress was twice the thickness. Didn't watch the 20-22inch TV in the room as all the channels […] was in Japanese but the internet was free and fast. The rest of the hotel facilities are at the ground floor near the lobby/reception counter. There is a nice tea-ceremony room where guests can watch the 30-min demonstration at 10am. The public bath is also on the ground floor and can only fit 2 persons each time. The lift was really fast for a small hotel. I was a bit doubtful when choosing the hotel as it is located in a sub-urban neighbourhood. Thankfully, it's located near a school so it was easy to find it on Google Map. It only took us a day to get used to the train system and the closest one, Iriya Station is just 5 minutes away from the hotel. Eventually, the location of the hotel turned out to be a blessing. After roaming around the busy areas of Tokyo, we came to appreciate the peacefulness when walking back to the hotel. Finally, hotel staff were very helpful and can speak good English. Highly recommended to all except those who prefers staying close to the main shopping districts like Shibuya/Shinjuku which are about 30 minutes ride. Tsukiji, Akihabara, Asakusa and Ginza were convenient to get from the hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Bang for the buck."
Greàt location, easy access to Tokyo Metro and lots of cafe nearby to excite the palate. Staff speak good English and very helpful. Laundry facility is extremely handy. Not a large hotel and therefore no big crowds. Room size is comparable to the other large 4-star hotel that we stayed in Kyoto. Just have to make your own futon bed here and sit on floor. […] If you are out and about all day in Tokyo and wanting a good room to back to, for peace and quiet, this is it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hidden gem"
The Edo Sakura was the perfect place to spend a few days exploring Tokyo. It was beautiful, peaceful and friendly and very handy for the Hibiya line on the Metro. We can highly recommend this hidden gem of a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very helpful staff"
We loved the Edo Sakura, mainly because the staff working there were so helpful and nice. The futons were terribly uncomfortable for our Western backs, though, so we won't be back. But the shower was incredible. My husband said it was the best he's ever used. Just big enough, and with great water pressure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, bit of walking involved."
Rooms are great, staff very friendly and efficient. Varying degrees of English, but all well up to anything you'd need. Only issue is location–I strongly recommend getting a taxi there from the station first time around. The place doesn't tend to show up accurately on most mapping systems. It's a ten minute walk to the nearest station (on the JR Yamanote […] line, the main one for getting around Tokyo), and another 15 minutes to Ueno Park/Zoo, so ideal for visiting them too!

"Ryokan for the first time."
This was my first time at a ryokan, and it was quite the experience. The rooms are quite small, and of course you sleep on the floor with a futon. The staff asked us to make our own beds out, which was quite weird. The hotel is really clean and very new. There was only 5 Japanese TV channels on tv, and nothing else. The location of this place is a […] 10 min walk from Uguisani station, and a little hard to find when you don Know where you're going. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Traditional tatami mat room"
We stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hostess was lovely and very welcoming and informative. The japanese breakfast, tea ceremony and garden was a nice touch. The room was very tastefully decorated and would have been great for 2 but was a little cosy for 3, however we were aware of this beforehand. The only downside for us […] was the 10min walk to the Yamanote JR line which we were using with our JR passes. If your happy to use the subway though then it is only a 3min walk. Overall highly recommend the edo sakura! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Introduction to Japan"
The warm welcome from Yoko as we stepped through the door at the Edo Sakura was much appreciated and was followed over our 4 night stay with continued excellent and friendly service. Our Japanese style room was immaculate and the operation of futons etc. very clearly explained. The optional western or Japanese style breakfasts were good value and tasty. […] The free tea ceremony is a nice extra. The hotel is well positioned to get to Ueno Park or Asakusa on foot and is a short walk to the metro system. Highly recommended.

"We love edo Sakura!"
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Tokyo especially because of our stay at Edo Sakura! It was easy to get to from the ueno station which is the end point of the airport train. We transferred to the hibiya line and took the train to iriya station which is only one stop away. After following directions from helpful trip advisor users, we […] got to the hotel which is about 500 meters from train stop. Front desk was friendly and efficient and spoke English well. We were briefed about our traditional style Japanese room. You can order breakfast the night before and you'll have it hot and perfect the morning after. There are two small baths downstairs and each bath is big enough for two people. There is a tea ceremony which happens every morning from 9:30am till 10. We missed this one though.:( Staff is very knowledgable about the area and always willing to help. I've already suggested the Edo Sakura to other friends who will be traveling to Tokyo. What a great find! Good rates too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place but 10min walk frm train station"
The guesthouse is very new, well kept - one of the prettiest we stayed in. The room was relatively spacious, tatami-style with shower and toilet built in. If we had more time, we would have used the hot bath as well! The only drawback and significant for us (because cabs are so expensive) was the long walk to the train station. The closest is a 10 min […] walk (Uguisudani station), and a little further away is Ueno station (cab it for about USD7). The place probably makes sense if your plan is to stay in the Ueno, Asakusa area. For us, we were constantly going to Shinjuku / Shibuya and the train ride there is about 27 minutes.... so geographically this was not a great choice! The hotel itself though - is tasteful, clean,new and overall v nice ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

깔끔하고 너무 좋았습니다. 나리타 공항에서 오기에 좋지만 시부야, 신주쿠 등과 같은 번화가와는 동떨어져 있어 약간 아쉬웠습니다. 하지만 웬만한 일본 호텔방은 작고 침대도 협소한것에 비하면, 오히려 넓게 이불 펴고 자는게 훨씬 편안했습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Plutôt décevant rapport qualité-prix"
Très bel hôtel, je m'attendais à un hôtel traditionnel japonais type "ryoukan" pour ce prix là (15 000yens). En fait, non c'est un hôtel normal décoré à la japonaise, certes très joli vraiment orienté pour la clientèle internationale. Pourquoi? parce que tout d'abord, la chambre est plutôt petite. Il n'y a pas de baignoire mais une douche! (impensable […] au Japon...même dans les plus petits hôtels il y a une baignoire) l'absence de baignoire incite à utiliser leur bain à la japonaise, attention limitée dans le temps, 500 yens les 40 minutes quand même, du luxe! et surtout les futons sont de très mauvaise qualité!!!J'ai vécu 7 ans au Japon et j'ai dormi sur des futons, alors je m'y connais!. Je peux vous assurer que quand on voyage et qu'on a passé des heures dans l'avion et porté des valises lourdes, on n'a pas envie d'avoir en plus mal aux reins.Je pense que cet hôtel est pour les étrangers car nous avons hérité de la chambre 404 qui signifie "mort" en japonais, ça aussi impensable au Japon, vous n'aurez jamais de chambre 404...bref, en plus on a mal dormi, déconseillé aux claustrophobes...je préfère les business hôtel bien plus confortables et moins chers.

極好Genuine Hotels.com guest review
到了江戶櫻花飯店，第一個驚艷的是它的裝潢！很傳統的日本風格，讓人覺得舒服！再來是服務人員，英文的程度蠻好的，所以對國外旅客而言溝通不是一件困難的事情，然後也很親切的會與我們聊天！再來是對茶道的體驗，蠻有趣的，師傅會跟我們說關於日本茶道的習俗，可以體驗看看！早餐的部分，我吃的是８００ｙｅｎ的早餐，很美味，但是飯量有點少，對於食量大的人而言可能會有點不足。房間的部分，住的是傳統雙人房，大小還可以，裝潢很典雅。整體而言超喜歡這家飯店的！如果下次有機會再來東京，我會再次入住這家飯店。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"좋은 료깐스타일의 여관.."
료깐스타일의 이 여인숙은요... 친절해요. 가방을 객실까지 올려다주고 방앞까지 같이 따라와서 설명해주시더라구요. 조식은 일본식은 800엔이였지만 매우 훌룡했어요. 전실 금연이고 별도의 로비 흡연장을 이용해야해요. 일본식 다다미방은 혼자묶기엔 충분히 넓었구요 이불은 각자 직접 깔아야 했어요 시설 청결 스태프 모두 만족스러웟지만 위치가 조금 외진곳이라 그게 좀 아쉬웠어요 료깐 바로 앞에 편의점은 있지만 뭐 분위기 좋은 이자까야같은건 기대하시면 안돼요 뭐 그래도 가격대비 매우 추천하고 싶은 곳이에요Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kodinomainen paikka, ystävällistä ja siistiä"
Puhdasta ja siistiä, uusi ryokan. Meillä oli japanilainen huone, nukuimme hyvin rauhallisessa ympäristössä. (Puoliso kaipasi tuolia, se länsimaisessa huoneessa.) Aamiainen oli mieleinen, vaihtoehtoja löytyy kolme ja omia toivomuksiakin meille toteutettiin. Pienellä maksulla järjestyy kuuma kylpy sekä pyykinpesu- ja -kuivatuskone.. Läheltä löytyy ainutlaatuisia […] paikallisia ruokapaikkoja (kysy henkilökunnalta suositukset) joissa selviää vaikka suomenkielellä - henkilökunta luultavasti. puhuu vain japania. Mutta maukkaat ruoat tulee eteen ja hintakin tosi kohtuullinen. Edo Sakurassa kaikki toimi kuten toivoisi ja saimme vastauksia ja ohjeita kysymyksiimme. Kannattaa tulostaa mukaan karttapiirros Edo Sakuran sivuilta, se helpottaa paikan löytymistä. Läheisiltä metropysäkeiltä helppo liikkua ympäri Tokiota - tai muualle. Helppo siirtyä myös Naritan kentälle. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel accueillant !"
Situé à une station de métro au Nord de la gare de Ueno, c'est une bonne alternative aux quartiers agités de Ginza ou Shinzuku pour voir la vie des vrais gens dans un quartier résidentiel type ''ville basse'' sans gratte ciel mais sans s'éloigner pour autant des attractions de la ville. Le personnel est anglophone, extrêmement gentils et disponible; […] on retrouve le style japonnais des chambres où on déroule son futon le soir et où on dort, drappé dans son pijama japonnais. Le ptit dej, facturé en plus, offre différentes possibilités. Pris sur des tables collectives et servi avec grand soin, c'est une excellente occasion pour échanger avec les autres résidents. Seul bémol: on ressent bien qu'un énorme effort est fait pour rendre le lieu chaleureux, zen, et permettre aux résidents de passage de vivre ''à la Japonaise''. Dommage que la salle de bains de ma chambre ait été aussi impersonnelle (plastique...!) ; disons que c'est la qualité de tout le reste qui fait ressortir ce petit défault ...
