This place has a lot of history and atmosphere.

homeikan0217.jpgThis is my second stay in the past two years and it's just as charming as I remembered it. This place has a lot of history and atmosphere. Right next to Tokyo Univ. Homeikan used to be a dormitory for students but is turned into a ryokan style hotel. If you want a western style hotel, this isn't the place for you because this place is 100% Japanese. Note that because this is a dormitory, everything is more or less shared. Sinks, Baths, and toilets are all shared. But this place has personality.

The staff is extremely kind and made sure everything was accommodating.

Great location near Tokyo University! Close to just about everything via train. The staff is extremely kind and made sure everything was accommodating. Only con is that the facilities are a bit old.

We love the food and the location is very close to the train station. The room is very clean and spacious. The staff is helpful and warm. We especially like the onzen. Definitely value for money. We recommend this place if you visit Gero, Japan.

Wonderful staff and facilities!

Wonderful staff and facilities! It was great to experience the feeling of a traditional ryokan, including sleeping in cozy futons on the tatami floor.

Amazing for culture immersion.

We stayed here for 3D2N. Location of the place is excellent as it's right smack in the middle of Dotonbori/Namba area. The only downside is is it's maybe a bit of a distance to walk from the nearest train station especially if you're lugging a lot of bags. (we alighted at Namba on the Midosuji Line). The staff can speak English and check-in was really smooth. We got the Japanese style room for 2 people and compared to other places in Japan, this one was really spacious. Everything was super clean. Hot water and Ice water was served to us every day along with some snacks. We didn't opt for the meals, so couldn't comment. They had a really cool heated mirror so it doesn't get fogged up after a hot shower and that fancy toilet too. The bath products were Shiseido and it really helped with my dry skin (went in Autumn). They also have a small gender-separated communal bath for use. The wi-fi in our room was weak though. :( Other than that we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. (You can change into provided Yukatas while lounging in your room) Loved my stay - excellent location, service, rooms.

The service is superb.

It was the best vacation! The hotel is owned by Mrs. Saito, Mr. and Mrs. Saito. Because of them, that's what made the vacation so special. The service is superb. Because they are so exceptional, so is their staff. You just don't find a hotel that makes you feel so welcome as well as tending to your needs. The food was also superb. The dishes were so beautifully prepared as well as being healthy and very delicious. I've never felt so rested and rejuvenated. This place is truly exceptional and the waters so healing. Can't wait to go back.

It is an excellent value.

It is also very close to Gero town and its shops and restaurants. The facilities were nice and clean and when you enter the onsen, the smell of the sulphur and the heat of the water confirms this is the real thing. The dinner with the upgraded meal plan which included Hida Beef was very good. But the best is the personal interest the staff and management took in its guests. Mr. Saito can respond to email inquiries in english so that was a great help in confirming our reservations and noting the changes in our arrival schedule. It is an excellent value.

Loved this place. Loved the staff. Clean facilities. It was a little outbid the way but only about a 10-15 min walk from the train station.

Super friendly staff and a beautiful room.

This place was wonderful and my husband and I loved it. The public baths are great for relaxing, and yukatas and towels are provided. The rooms are traditional with tatami mats, futons, and our room even had a great little side room with a table and two chairs next to a large window that overlooked the canal in Dotonbori. The location is great if you want to be in the middle of Osaka's most hopping district. We slept great, but we also were exhausted almost every night. Slight sleepers may want to ask for a room away from the canal as the boat tours go past and the night life is loud and merry! What we loved most about this hotel is the staff. They were always very friendly and even helped out with food suggestions and printed out a Hyperdia map to help us get to our next destination. They are wonderful here!

The staff were great and really helpful and accommodating of our requirements.

27.jpgWe booked a triple room, which was spacious since only 2 of us ended up staying at this hostel. The hostel was a typical Ryokan with tatami flooring and futon beds. The staff were great and really helpful and accommodating of our requirements. The hostel has a lovely garden area, hot tubs and Japanese breakfast and other meals can be ordered. The location can be difficult to find and you need a good map or GPS. Overall a plesant and relaxing stay.

Still great!

This was the second visit to Kaneyoshi and it's still great. Friendly and helpful staff, great location, a fantastic restaurant just across the canal (keep an eye out for a large yellow lantern and a table by the water, it's quite small and easy to miss). Everything that Dotonbori offers is on your doorstep.
