We stayed two nights at this ryokan in the (touristy) Asakusa area. Our room was nice, clean, large and well equipped, with separate toilet and bathroom with a tub. The ryokan has two really nice gender separated onsen baths. The staff at the reception was very polite and helpful and for the most part spoke english. The breakfast is traditional Japanese, i.e. rice, fish, tofu etc, served in a special room at set hours. It seems like other travellers have been able to choose western breakfast but we did not get that option. Note: I first wrote this review on "Sadachiyo",, which is classified as a restaurant. I didn't see any ordinary restaurant at this hotel but maybe you can preorder meals there.

I highly recommend this Ryokan! The staff are all very very kind and accommodating! They make you feel super special and welcome! The ryokan is beautiful inside and outside. The room was decorated beautifully as well. The bedding is futon style we found it quite comfortable, but if you do not like a firm bed just be aware. I definitely recommend the half board. With half board you get a traditonal Japanese ryokan dinner and breakfast. The food was phenomenal and the meals were huge! So delicious!!! They also have 2 onsens or hot baths, a stone and a wood bath. The baths were also beautiful and very very clean and comfortable! All in all this was definitely one of the most amazing and coolest places I've ever stayed on vacation! :)

it's charming and authentic and staff is lovely, but I would be happier staying in western type of accommodations. It's very basic, there absolutely nothing in the room but a table and tiny closet for our jackets. We had to keep all our clothes in our suitcases for a 6 days of our stay in Tokyo. Which is terribly uncomfortable and doesn't get aired out and I hated it! Futons are hard, your book or any device has no place but on the floor next to bed. Bathroom and toilet rooms, even though private but very basic to say the least. We will try our breakfast tomorrow and report.

If you're looking for a traditional ryokan this is your place. The staff are very friendly and I enjoyed my 3 days stay. Their baths are open all night, which is good for guests who comes back from their room late at night. They also give you a key chain with your name on it for souvenir.

We spent our last night in Japan here and it was a fantastic experience to round off a wonderful holiday. The ryokan is only 5 minutes walk from the Senso-Ji temple, yet in a quiet back street. The staff were warm, very hospitable, remembered all our preferences, and speak good English. We changed into the yukatas and settled into the tatami-matted room which was large, comfortable, with fast wifi and furnished with lovely antiques. The onsen were just the place to soak tired limbs after sightseeing. The dinner and breakfast were just outstanding. Lots of exquisitely presented small plates of delicious food and a bubbling hot pot of soup and vegetables on the table. They waved us off with presents of sweets and charms with our name on. A really special place and not to be missed.

Great traditional hotel with really friendly service. Awesome local knowledge and good feel to the place. Even got personalised key chains on departure. Close to delicious restaurants and transport. Definitely worth staying at.

We stayed here for two nights to get a taste of the traditional ryokan experience. It was a great decision. Fabulous location, within a few minutes' walk to the Asakusa temple and market, and a few minutes more to the Asakusa station. The room was clean and comfortable and the bath a great addition to the experience. The best part was breakfast, which was the traditional Japanese breakfast with rice, miso soup, fish and pickled vegetables. Delicious! Friendly staff. We were the only foreigners staying at the ryokan and they made us feel very welcome! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to experience the traditional ryokan experience!

The ryokan exterior and reception area are quite impressive, with friendly service, but the rooms themselves are a bit of a run-down. We stayed in better ryokan rooms for less money, even in Tokyo. The main issue, however, was the smells. The room smelt of smoke and each time I woke up in the night I found it disturbing. The toilet smelt faintly of urine. I would advise skipping the meals - I'd say you can eat better quality Japanese food at a better price outside of the hotel and the meals are served in a dining room, not in your own room. The onsen was a nice experience. In my view, if you want to stay in an area away from the centre, Yanaka is much nicer than Asakusa.

I stayed in Japan for one week in 3 hotels. For one of those nights I was looking to stay in a hotel that was uniquely Japanese. It was a toss-up between a ryokan or a pod hotel. I am glad that I selected this place. The folks working there were very friendly. I don't speak any Japanese so I was quite relieved to find that the hotel staff spoke English quite well. I was a little concerned that it was far from the near st metro station but I discovered that the walk was through a very cool part of town-- it may have become tiresome if I were pulling luggage or staying multiple nights... but I wasn't. The hotel has hours so be sure to be back by closing time or let them know of your plans. They gave me a cool little charm with my name etched in it when I checked out which was beyond any expectation. This place isn't a typical hotel so go in with an open mind and I think you'll enjoy the stay.

I stayed at the Sadachiyo Ryukan in Tokyo from August 15 – 17, 2016. I was traveling with my 15 year old daughter and 12 year old son. The Ryukan was located very close to the Sensoji Temple. Although the Ryukan is showing its age a little (things are just a little worn and look ready for a new coat of paint/new wallpaper), I would not let that stop you from staying at this lovely little place. The room in which we stayed was perfect – tatami mats, futons for sleeping, table for tea. The bath/shower was very traditional (and reminded my Japanese friend of the bath in her home when she was growing up). The rooms were clean, and housekeeping was impeccable. The daily breakfast is a traditional Japanese breakfast (I am sorry to say, I realize I do not enjoy fish in the morning). The breakfast room was beautiful and food served perfectly. The front desk staff was excellent – extremely attentive, communicated very well, kind and generous and a pleasure to meet. My only complaint was that the room smelled slightly of smoke – I could not tell if the smoke was old smoke (prior to becoming a “non-smoking room,” or new smoke coming from another room or location outside the Ryukan, or if the room was a smoking room). However, on the whole vibe of the Ryukan is traditional, beautiful, esthetically pleasing, and a “must do” for anyone wishing to visit the real Japan. I would not let the little showing of wear and tear put me off from staying at this lovely gem in Tokyo.
