A friend and I had a wonderful stay at Hoshidekan. The building is an ancient 2 story Japanese house that has been in the family of the owner for 4 generations. The outside is stunning but the interior with it's inner garden connected by a bridge is really amazing. The hosts were so wonderful and helpful. The breakfast was really good and as we chose the Japanese option very traditional. If you want a real and fantastic Japanese stay I really recommend this house.

The rooms at the hotel stay very true to the expectation one might have of a very old building. The road can be heard through the walls, however, it's not too bad at night, and the staff was amazing. The garden stands up to the pictures, and the building is very beautiful (just be wary of being loud at night). Location was rather amusing honestly, it's about 12 minutes walking to Ise station, and very close to multiple restaurants and a convenience store. The building itself is very old, yet is surrounded by a very modern area. There is an excellent pizza bar down the road towards the station that serves a specialty seaweed pizza, would recommend! It is run by one guy, and he's really awesome! Look for the pieces of wood in the window.

My husband and I stayed at this charming hotel for two nights and found it to be an absolute oasis...the surroundings are traditional old style Japan..dark wood, a red bridge, a working gramophone, and lovely old magazine photos decorating the walls. Our room was on the small side, but we had everything we needed. The bathrooms are located outside the rooms, but there are plenty of them so access was not an issue ( side note: the hotel was only half full and if it had been to capacity, the bathroom situation MIGHT have become a problem.) The staff are just wonderful. I didn't catch the name of the male proprietor, but he spoke excellent English and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. He took us all around the hotel and showed us the bamboo pipe with the water dripping through it...it makes as astonishing sound! The hotel serves breakfast (Western or Japanese style) and it was well cooked and plentiful. There are two onsen style bathtubs and large shower rooms - perfect at the end of the day if you've been tramping all over Ise. One of my favourite touches was the flag stand in the lobby....the owners post flags to indicate which nationality their guests are and when we checked out, the lovely man who runs the hotel called us a taxi and then stood outside waving goodbye with the Canadian flag to wish us well....what a lovely send off I highly recommend Hoshidekan...very well done.

Staying at Hoshidekan was a fantastic experience. As soon as you enter the building you can feel the history of it. Fully built in wood, it has a very relaxing garden at the center. The host speaks correct English and has maps in many languages. He is really doing everything possible to help and make your stay a wonderful experience. Having an eye for details he was putting the flag of the guests’ countries on the front desk. Room was big enough, free Wi-Fi. Don’t expect high comfort but the experience totally compensate. Heating in the room is ok and toilets/bath was very clean. I highly recommend to stay there if you want to experience ancient japan way of life.

Avery nice guesthouse that feels old end genuine. Very clean and well kept. Rooms are very nice. Small but nice private bath. The owner is so helpful in every way. As they dont serve dinner we bought some food in a store and had it in a small living room in the middle of the house. The owner welcomed us there and put on an old grammophone with Glenn Miller etc! Breakfast is served in the morning. Would love to come here again!

Booked on line after looking at some very expensive Ise area price Ise is so famous and popular that Ise can be very expensive to stay in . Booked in a tradition Japanese style sleep on the foot tatami room for three . Told my wife and brother this was all we could get on a Sunday , yen 18900 with breakfast but told the others it was 18900 each,ha ha! In my 52 yrs in Japan this brought back memories of my living here in the 1960,s The owner was a lovely young man who was immensely proud of his 90 yrs old ryokan ,watch our the owner grabbing yr wheeled suitcase and cleaning all four wheels before allowing them on his polished floors. There's no bath or toilet in yr rooms or phones. They have good free wi fi. The toilets are down the narrow hall way ,round the corner and over a old old red bridge.Take yr wifi freely cellphone to get back.ha!ha! Two japanese style baths down stairs ,take the left one as its a japanese cedar model . Big enough for you and two of yr girlfriends. The owner is only two happy to give a map showing the near by eating/drinking places. One street over is the river and old merchant street houses, very interesting they are. When I sent my japanese wife to pay the what she thought was a very stay I kept my distance to watch the reaction ,ha!ha! Would we go back? Hell yes !

The architecture of this Ryokan is interesting , old and very traditional. Comfort is minimal and the toilets and showers were quite far from the room. I had to go across a bridge with only the light from my I-phone to get to the toilet in the middle of the night. When we arrived, around noon, we were met by a very angry woman who spoke no English at all, but could get us to understand that guests were not allowed in the house between 10am and 16pm. She eventually did agree that we could leave our luggage until 16hrs when she would let us in. The street behind the Hoshidekan is full of old houses and all sorts of fun businesses, cafes,bars ,restaurants.....

If you want a great cultural experience at a great price, stay here! This was my first time in Japan and also my first solo trip in a foreign country so I was pretty worried. The staff are probably my favorite thing about this place. SUPER friendly and willing to answer any questions I had like, "How do I get to Isejingu" "How do I use the washer and dryer?" "Is there a restaurant nearby that you reccomend?" Now the only things to consider would be that the toilets, wash areas, and shower/baths are shared. There are also certain time restrictions so that they can clean everything. Also, the walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors pretty clearly so use earplugs or headphones if you're a light sleeper. (But honestly, those things didn't really bother me). Other notes: Check-in at 4pm. Check-out before 10am. Oh and you don't have to but I gave the staff some small "omiyage" (just some snacks from where I'm from) to thank them. They are some seriously nice people ^_^

When we arrived we had a warm welcome from the owners of the place. We didn't notice at the time; they had a row of flags of different nationalities who are currently staying there on their desk. Including ours! Location Trainstation. 5 to 8 minutes. - 8 minutes ("I'm on a holiday! I have all the time in the word and don't want to sweat a lot") - 5 minutes. ("I'm going to work and I have an important meeting") Location Geku shrine: 15-20 minutes (holiday speed.) other shrine is easy to get to by the bus station next to the entrance. Take your 'sweat towel' with you in summer! House: super cute! It's like a movie. It is well taken care of. It has good facilities (modern toilet with all the buttons) and good showers. Room: TV, airconditioning, table, fridge. A robe that made me feel Japanese ;) We had a double room. Only negative: Our room smelled a bit funny. Extra: when we got back from the sightseeing we heard a knock on the door. And we got served tea!!! And it was very good quality! (I know my tea) I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to experience an old Japanese house. One thing is for sure. The owners care and it translates through the little things, like tea and flags. ;) I would go there again.

Hoshidekan is an attractively ramshackle and traditional inn in a large old wooden building in the Kawasaki district of Ise, about 10 minutes walk from the station. The rooms are Japanese style with shared bathrooms, and there's free wifi. The room rates are very competitive. But, as other reviewers have advised, check in advance whether breakfast is included. Bicycles are available to rent, offering a practical way to reach Ise shrine. The inn is located on a busy road and there's some traffic noise even in the bedrooms at the back.
