Absolutely lovely place to stay in Tokyo. Although it is located in a local area (which I loved!) it's quick and convenient to travel to Ikebukuro Station where you can easily access the rest of Tokyo. The rooms are nice tradtional-style tatami mat rooms and there is a Japanese bath on the top floor which I would highly recommend trying....

It was a wonderful experience staying at Family Inn Saiko. The inn is about 5-10 mins away from Shiinmachi station. It felt a tad far initially, but my friends and I grew to appreciate and enjoy the walk through the quiet yet safe neighbourhood. The futon mattresses in the room were amazingly comfortable and the inn was staffed by friendly...

My first trip to Tokyo was so much fun with the Saiko Family Inn. Free breakfast, a short walk to the train for the main line through the city. The rooms were small and clean and the staff were lovely.

After 2 years we went back to Family Inn Saiko and were satisfied as last time. This small inn is just perfect, very nice, welcoming and helpful staff.

We stayed at Family Inn Saiko with our 11 and12 year old children and found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was basic but clean and comfortable.

We stayed here, because my very favourite family ryokan in Ueon, Sawanoya, was not available. Perhaps Saiko does not quite compare for charm or location (I love Ueno, and Saiko is a little more remote), but this is excellent value for money and extremely friendly. Breakfast is perfectly fine, rooms spotless, the ohuro very nice if not like a hot...

“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.”
