Makes you really feel like you are in Japan.

Awesome place. Makes you really feel like you are in Japan. Great price! Theres a private shower and a shared bath room with thermal waters if you really want the Japanese hot bath experience. Sleeping in the feels great and the people working there are really nice.

The staff was unusually welcoming and cheerful, constantly greeting us and thanking us as if we were celebrities.

This is a great place but what impressed us most was the front desk person's advice (which he offered without our request) that saved us much hassle on our return to Tokyo. Specifically, he recommended changing from Shinkansen to Narita Express at Shinagawa instead of at Tokyo because Shinigawa is a much smaller station so save about 15 minutes of racing to the next platform far away. It worked just like he said! The five of us are grateful.

Rooms are large, clean, equipped with refrigerator, phone, shampoo, etc. A pitcher of tea and a pitcher of ice water daily with a small treat.

The breakfast is the guest's choice of 7, 7:30, or 8am. A fabulous set meal served at a reserved table in a large special room. The meal has a few variations such as a different kind of fish each day. Each of the four breakfasts we ate there, we had the room to ourselves. Seating is on the tatami floor, using a cushion.

The staff was unusually welcoming and cheerful, constantly greeting us and thanking us as if we were celebrities.

A suggestion on getting there from Shin Osaka or the main Osaka station: Of course take the Madosuji Line, but changing to the Sennichi subway line at Namba involves a lot of stairs up and down, and spiraling around, riding two minutes to Nihombashi Station, then a lot more stairs and spiraling around to use Exit 2. A big chore with suitcases. Much easier is avoiding all the stairs and spiraling at both stations by just walking 8 minutes from Namba to Nihombashi. The underground passageway "Namba Walk" has tile floors and shops on both sides, very smooth and pleasant, and cooler and drier than being outside. (If the Namba walk ends in about 40 meters you are going the opposite way, not the correct way. The correct way has numbers on the walls getting bigger: B14, B15, B16, etc.) Still take Exit 2 at Nihombashi Station.

From Exit 2, go to the surface road, turn left, soon cross over a bridge, then take the first road to the left. Kaneyoshi is on your left in about 50 meters.

Strong wifi in the rooms. A computer and printer in the lobby.

I have to say that they have done a good job in keeping up the good service standard.

This is my 2nd time staying at this Japanese style hot spring inn. I have to say that they have done a good job in keeping up the good service standard. For those who are looking for: easy accessibility from the Gero station, spacious Japanese style room, in room Japanese style dinner, hot spring bath overnight while staying at an inn...you won't be disappointed. More importantly Mr Saito of the inn can communicate in English and in Chinese - making life easier for Non-Japanese speaking visitors.

Clean, good service and great location.

Clean, traditional style rooms in a great location at a great price. What more could you ask for? There is a common bath for guests to use that is divided by gender so men and women bathe separately. The location is right in the heart of Dotonbori so you're close to tons of great restaurants, host/hostess clubs, karaoke bars and izakayas. And despite the location, the rooms are pretty quiet at night!

The staff were really helpful - the introductory tour was very useful.

I stayed at Homeikan with a friend and we were delighted with everything. We thought it was absolutely charming and we loved the garden and feeding the fish. The staff were really helpful - the introductory tour was very useful. Best of all was the lovely breakfast, carefully matched to our dietary needs - and delicious! Thank you to everyone Note: there is a rather steep road to reach Homeikan.

Nice hotel-ryokan.

This hotel has Japanese style rooms when you slipping on a floor and enjoying a hot public bath on the upper floor which is separate for men and women. But what is not expected that you actually have a bathroom with shower in your room for your own convenience, balcony that looks like a small separate room with paper doors and that sleeping kimono, free internet and green tea are provided. Also the rooms are big, really big for Japan. We enjoyed our stay a lot. A very attentive and polite service. Location is 5 minutes walk from main attractions of Dotonbori area. This hotel is popular not only among tourist but also locals don't hesitate to stay here.

To not stay at Homeikam is a tragedy. Best in Tokyo.

This place may be a short walk from the station, but it's well worth the journey. Our room was clean with futon already made for us. They even had hot water for tea and Okashi ready for us to enjoy! The staff spoke great English and we were able to communicate with ease. We got breakfast which is a must. Convenient, delicious, filling!!! The baths are clean and hot, perfect for a day spent on your feet. To not stay at Homeikam is a tragedy. Best in Tokyo.

We will be telling all our friends and family to always stay here in Tokyo!

Homeikan was the most incredible place to kick off our month in Japan. Everything pales in comparison to this beautiful, beautiful place. We arrived at our next accomodation, turned to eachother and said Let's go back home(ikan)! Everything is perfection: from the people, to the picturesque pond and gardens, to the dreamy onsen and spacious rooms. The bento breakfast is the cherry on top! We will be telling all our friends and family to always stay here in Tokyo!

Very traditional Japanese, and a very good place for travelers who want to experience a ryokan stay.

I had a lovely single room to myself here. Very traditional Japanese, and a very good place for travelers who want to experience a ryokan stay. The atmosphere is fantastic and very calming after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping. The neighbourhood is fairly quiet, with a lot of coffee shops, restaurants and bars with student prices and some beautiful little art galleries. Fairly easy access to several train lines and the rest of Tokyo and regional areas.
