Horrible front desk staff
We landed in Tokyo in the early morning and headed to this ryokan to put our luggage. It was raining when we stepped out of the train station. With only an umbrella and having to shelter a toddler I carried in my baby carrier and holding another preschooler with my other hand, we inevitably got wet by the rain. When I got to the front desk, I placed my purse on the receiving counter and was told rudely by the staff to not put my purse there. Then he told us that the room we booked for did not indicate that we had 2 children with us. I explained that the accommodation showed the room we booked could put up a max of 2 children. 1 of my children is under 2 years old. He insisted that we pay extra. We obliged. But his way of telling us to pay was very rude and belittling. He made us feel like we were begggers asking for free accommodation. His tone of voice was harsh and kept saying no no no. He even cut me off by hushing me. I have never encountered any service staff as rude as him.

Fantastic choice. My wife and I both loved it. We stayed in the executive suite for two nights (Fri + Sat). The property is located extremely conveniently in the Asakusa area, right near the Sensoji temple. There's a sprawling market area literally right next door, and plenty of restaurants around the area. Extremely walkable, and only a block or two from Asakusa station (Ginza or Tsukuba line). Despite being so close to major attractions, we found the area was actually pretty quiet at night, as the markets close fairly early and open late, at least by my standards (~10am - 10pm). The public bath area was also amazing. The hot tub was very refreshing, and the tub + bath area were very traditional style. Highly recommend. My only complaint was that the wi-fi signal was terrible (at least on the top floor where we stayed). Basically unusable with a phone or tablet. A powerful laptop can connect, but it's not that fast.

Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu is right in the heart of Asakusa, an old neighborhood lined with traditional Japanese sweet shops, craft shops, and restaurants. Sensoji temple and the Kaminari-Mon (The Thunder Gate) are within walking distance. I chose the traditional Japanese room, because I like sleeping on the fllor (must be my Asian upbringing) with the scent of fresh straw from the tatami mats. If you choose to do that, please remember that you must remove your shoes before entering such a room. The place is within 8 mins' walk from the Asakusa Tokyo Metro Station, which connects to the Tokyo JR and Shinkansen Station. This makes it easy to travel to other nearby cities by train. I originally booked the place only for a night, but ended up extending my stay there because of the staff's hospitality, the general atmosphere of Asakusa, and the easy access to commute and dining.

An Oasis in the bustle of Tokyo
This Ryokan is wonderfully situated in the Asakusa Area - near to the temples and markets with lots of shopping and eateries nearby and less than 10 mins walk from the station. It is in a little side street away from the bustle of the main tourist market and as you take the few steps away from the busy thoroughfare the noise melts away. The hotel is very serene, the rooms are a superb mix of traditional Ryokan with tatami mats and futons but all mod cons (well equipped private bathroom/shower hairdryer, air con and tea making and even a fridge. There is a public onsen on the top floor and the staff are very helpful and friendly and speak good english. We didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on the catering.

Very good 8.0
the location of ryokan was good once you have your navigation antennas on - easy access to trains and information and lots of interesting shopping leading up to sensor i met 3 front staff people - the 2 woman were nice one was especially accommodating - the gentleman was quite curt - i had no choice except a lat check in - i emailed them twice on this and when i finally got to hotel he was quite annoyed and reprimanded me that he had to work overtime - there is public hot tub at hotel but there are no onsens in tokyo a bit misleading
