I would have never booked here as it is supposedly rated 2 star, but my son convinced me after he read the reviews and I am glad he did. The location was quiet, the staff was helpful and friendly and the Inn was impeccably clean. I put 3 on sleep quality baa it was bright too early in the morning....

We stayed for five nights. Masa and Hiroshi very helpful and attentive. It's really nice to stay just outside of the busy areas of Tokyo in a 'normal' Japanese suburb - relaxing after pounding the streets of Tokyo. No problem getting around on the the extensive metro network. Supermarkets, laundrettes, eateries near-by. Would definitely recommend if you want to experience...

Staying at Family Inn Saiko was one of the best parts of my trip to Tokyo. There is no better way to get the true Japanese experience than by staying in a tatami mat room in a nice residential neighborhood a short train ride from central Tokyo.

My husband and I are in our (very) late 50's, wanted to come to Tokyo but not do the typical generic tourist stuff. Everything about the Family Inn Saiko said Japan. The rooms were compact but comfortable, four nights in and I could easily do a dozen more. The Metro stations are a quick walk and we'd do them a...

We were a little hesitant towards staying in the outskirts of the "action". But became really happy that we chose to do so. Tokyo is a mouthful, and for small town people like us, the tranquility of the neighbourhood and the Family Inn was a perfect match to the hustle and bustle of the busy areas. An informative "map" was...

I absolutely fell in love with this little inn. I loved sleeping on tatami, I loved the staff's friendly sightseeing advice, I loved the free laundry and mini-kitchen facilities, and I even loved the walk from the nearest train station. I'd been worried that being a 10-minute walk from the nearest station would be a drain, but it turned out...

Friendly and helpful owners whose English is way better than my Japanese. Basic breakfast of toast and tea/coffee. The single room was perfect with an ensuite bigger than I expected in Japan. Futon was comfy and the doona soft and warm. Reasonably close to the local rail station and then it's only one stop to the JR.

We spent three weeks in Japan, and we found that we had the best sleep at the Family Inn Saiko. The best thing is that you have your own air conditioning unit. We always get overheated at the other places, and the bedding is too warm, but here we could turn off the heating overnight and were able to sleep...

Great introduction to Tokyo. Lovely hosts who helped us arrange our days. Clean room with traditional bedding. Quiet neighbourhood not far from subway (15min) or main JR station (30min). Highly recommended and excellent value for money.

“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.”
