2.96km from Gusto TakenotsukaI really enjoyed my stay here. The lobby and the room and everything were downright immaculate. Japan tends to be clean in general, but this was above that bar. My room was comfortable and there were all the amenities I needed, including a refrigerator and microwave, discreetly tucked away in a cabinet. There was a large 50" TV and high-speed internet. Despite its name, this is not really a ryokan aside from the fairly traditional Japanese theme to the rooms. The beds are contemporary mattresses (just on the floor). This is OK as I wasn't looking for a traditional ryokan. But just be advised if you're looking for the traditional ryokan experience, you should stay elsewhere. This is much more like a hotel with a traditional Japanese twist to it. It's really one part spa-hotel, one part ryokan, and one part modern hotel. Pros: All the above. Very good value for the price. The bathtub was in traditional Japanese style. They provide free water and plenty of different toiletries. Cons: Inconvenient location (this was the major downside) -- it is about a 15 minute walk to the nearest station, which isn't covered by your Tokyo Metro or Toei passes, so expect to pay a bit more for transportation into the city. It is also a bit of a walk to the nearest convenient store. My room had shutters on the window, which may be nice for people who want to sleep late, but they completely shut out the light altogether (it was pitch black in my room at 8am). The maid service comes by pretty early in the morning. There's no "Do Not Disturb" or "Clean Now" signs to put on your door handle, so you either need to be out at 9am or your room won't be cleaned. The TV is really nice, but the channels and movies on demand are only in Japanese, so I didn't really get to enjoy it. They should offer some English options, in my opinion. They do have a BluRay player attached to the TV, so if they had a library of English-language BluRay disks downstairs, that would solve the problem. Overall, I'm glad I stayed here. It was very comfortable. I'd rate it 4.5 stars out of 5 if I could.
