"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.

"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
"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
프런트분들도 모두 친절하고 방도 매우 깨끗했습니다 단지 역에서 약간 거리가 있고 가장 가까운역이 이리야역이라는 것과 주변에 늦게까지 놀만한 곳이 없다는걸 제외하고는 단점이 별로 없네요Genuine Hotels.com guest review

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 ...

"New and lovely modern ryokan"
11/15/14 Chiisora Sydney, Australia
The location of the ryokan is not too far from the station if you know where it is. They even provide a very detailed map to ensure you get there safe and sound. The people are quite friendly and understand English so no problems if you don't speak any Japanese. The onsen and meals come at a charge though and need to be reserved a day beforehand (at least for the meals). I personally haven't tried the meals but when I go back, I definitely intend to try it! The photos looked very inviting and if it weren't for my partner's not wanting to try it, I definitely would have tried it. As for the room, the 6 mat tatami room is big enough if you're of average size and not extremely big. I think it would even actually be ok if there was an extra child involved. The place is extremely clean and apparently is quite new (only about 1.5yrs at time of writing). And another thing I really liked about this place was that there was a free laundry machine and dryer to wash your clothes! The bad thing is, there always seems to be people using it so you have to make sure you get in quick! In terms of of the street and neighbourhood, it's a pretty quiet street but there are some shops around within walking distance. There are multiple vending machines and a convenience store nearby. I think the convenience store is open 24/7 so it's good for a quick brekkie if you haven't ordered anything from the hotel.
"Lovely ryokan "
10/27/14 Joel P
Fantastic staff who speak English and are extremely helpful. Japanese traditional room was small but that was to be expected. Location is very convenient: 5 min walk away from Iriya station in the Hibiya Metro line or 10 min walk away from Uguisudani station on the BE Yamanote line.

A very nice place and very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet neighbour hood. 10 minutes walk to the metro and super clean place. We had a good time. The place is one stop away from ueno which is connected by J R line.You sort of experience a modern rayoken here.
"Enjoyable Stay at Edo Sakura"
10/16/14 jwee92 Singapore
EDO SAKURA (TOKYO) PROS 1) Reception - Mr Nobu was welcoming & friendly. Edo Sakura is new, opened a year ago. 2) Western Room - beds were comfortable, pocketed mattress. Requested for another pillow, was given foam memory pillow. Sleep quality excellent. 3) Japanese room - bigger than Western room. Tatami were comfortable. 4) Rooms had individual air con blowers which were refreshing. Temperature can be controlled to your preference. 5) WiFi was strong in the rooms. 6) Public Bath for 2 was cosy and hot. However, should add moisturising powder into hot water to enhance the experience. CONS 1) No mirror in the room. 2) No hooks in the room to hang wet towels or clothes. Just 5 hangers in total. 3) Reading lights too dim. Room not bright enough. 4) Room not sound proof - can hear movements. 5) No clock in room. Conclusion 1) my family and I will definitely stay here again. 2) Location - quiet yet convenient. Minimart around the corner. Iriya Station is 4 mins away, which connects easily to Ueno Station & others. 3) Impeccable service from Edo Sakurai.
"Excellent place to stay"
10/10/14 rodhall3199 Hoi An
Close to transport with JR line a short walk. Quiet. Surrounded by local restaurants. Friendly, clean, helpful. Little point staying more centrally with rail close. Yukon in the restaurant was a delight each morning with a big smile and a friendly good morning.
"Friendly clean and tidy"
10/05/14 Hitchhiker1957 Haverhill, United Kingdom
we wanted a traditional hotel with easy access to the center of Tokyo the Edo Sakura ticked all the boxes. Traditional Japanese room with futon bed that you make up yourself (when in Rome!) the bathroom and shower fascilities are almost perfect in their configeration, ideal accomodation for the experienced traveller at a very economic price . Highly recomended.
"Superior Kindness, Comfort, and Cleanliness"
09/25/14 Rina B New York, New York, United States
My husband and I stayed at the Edo Sakura twice during our honeymoon trip to Japan this summer. The hotel delivered the kindness, comfort, and cleanliness you could only find in Japan, but at a completely unexpected level. Upon arrival, the staff had put fresh flowers and a note in our room to congratulate us on our marriage. When we came back to Tokyo, on our way home to the States, they surprised us by gifting us a night in their largest and fanciest suite. It had its own private garden and all the amenities of a five-star hotel! We booked Edo Sakura for the value, but got a whole lot more. We give our highest recommendation for Edo Sakura.
09/20/14 atreides75 London, United Kingdom
Edo Sakura is a real gem. Pros: 1. Clean and super neat rooms 2. Awesome staff that speaks better English than yours truly 3. It is in a very residential area (Taito) and you really feel like a local 4. There is a great little onsen just 3 minutes walk away. Its old, very local but it is an amazing experience. Do read onsen etiquette online before you visit Cons: 1. While we found the futon beds comfortable, it is a hassle to set it up 2. Location is a bit off the beaten track though very close to Iriya station. If you want to be close to action, you should stay elsewhere Would i recommend to friends and family? Absolutely!
"Just Wonderful Choice for Tokyo"
09/16/14 Andreas K Bangkok, Thailand
We stayed at the Edo Sakura in April during Sakura season and it was the perfect launch for our Japan trip. The hotel is just utterly charming, doing what Japan does so well: honouring tradition, while at the same time embracing modernity. The rooms are of course small, but that is to be expected in Tokyo and they don't feel cramped at all, but cosy and warm. Sleeping on Tatami mats in this quintessential Japanese atmosphere really makes you feel you have arrived in the Land of the Rising Sun after a long flight. You really feel like this is your Japanese home for as long as you are in Tokyo and no greater compliment could be given to a hotel! The modern ryokan is difficult to find at first (just follow the instructions on the website though and it has a great connection with Narita airport), but you soon get the hang of it after just a few trips to and from the hotel. It's close to the underground (8-10 min walk), which is only a few stops away from Ueno Station, one of the main connecting hubs in Tokyo - so great location as well. Even with all the possible hotels in Tokyo and the modern luxury chains available, we would seriously consider staying here again next time just based on its charm, friendly staff and convenient location.
"Hard to find, but good neighborhood"
08/28/14 Georgia C Victoria, Canada
We had a lot of trouble finding the hotel, despite having a screenshot of the google map and the hotel directions from the subway. Addresses in Tokyo are difficult with the chrome system, but the address listed on the website didn't seem to match with the chrome the hotel was located in. We didn't have access to the internet on our phones, so relied on a few helpful locals and neighborhood maps. If you are in the same situation, we would suggest having directions from the subway printed out in English and make sure you exit from the right subway exit. Also having GPS/maps on your phone would be helpful. The hotel itself is great. Its in a quiet neighborhood, which is a nice change from the bustle of Tokyo. The room was small, but had its own bathroom and shower. A nice breakfast was included and the staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English. We would stay here again.
