It was a great stay at Family Inn Saiko. The owners are really friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand to introduce where to go, food to eat and how to get to places. Love how cosy the feeling of the inn is. The room is simple and nice (though small, not surprising for any rooms in Tokyo).

Just returned from a 2 week family vacation to Japan(1st timers) & spent our 1st 5 nights there. Wanted to experience a traditional Ryokan before moving on to a 5 star type of accommodation. Have to admit it was as good if not better than the more " glitzy" hotels we stayed at. Reasons? 1). After spending all day in...

We loved staying in a quieter neighborhood in Tokyo, especially once we figured out that we could take the Seibu line train to a neighborhood stop rather than walk the 30 minutes from the Ikebukuro subway station. The neighborhood had many good restaurants, shops and a great bakery, and gave a less touristy view of Tokyo; few shopkeepers spoke English....

I found this inn because I was looking for a Japanese-style inn near where my friends live. The staff are very friendly and the neighborhood is quiet and lovely. If you're looking for a low-key Japanese style inn (tatami mats, futons, Japanese-style bath), this is the place for you!

Excellent hospitality and very helpful family/host. Despite early arrival, our rooms were ready and provided for, which is a surprise in Japan. Very clean and comfortable environment, and neighborhood. Not to mention excellent value.

I stayed there with my husband and four other friends for about 4 nights. Family Inn is located in a very quaint neighbourhood and if you are interested in living 'like a local', do stay here. On many occasions, we walked to shiinamachi station's market to get fresh fruits and groceries. Also, I celebrated my birthday there and we shared...

“They will likely assign the rooms. But this is a good place to stay after trying other Ryokans out. Very clean (like most Ryokans) but the in-room bathroom adds to comfort and convenience. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, but is still close to major subway stations and has a lot of delicious food.”
