view web site ›'s insider take:

Homeikan is a traditional Japanese inn situated in three separate buildings (the 25-room Honkan, 31-room Daimachi, and 33-room Morikawa) in a quiet residential neighborhood near Tokyo University. The rooms are all Japanese-style (that is, with tatami mats and futon mattresses), either "ordinary" for budget travelers or the marginally more expensive "authentic and traditional." Opt for the latter. The main building, or Honkan, is listed as a historic property, while Daimachi Bekkan, across the street, is a former family home with its own Japanese garden. This is not like a Western hotel, so don't expect on-tap room service. The maids leave at 10 pm and the main lights go out at 10:30 pm, although guests are free to come and go. The staff, in fact, is helpful and hospitable. There are no private bathrooms; instead, each of the buildings has separate men's and women's baths, and there is also a family bath. Homeikan also offers massage services, as well as Japanese breakfasts and dinners on request. And free Internet access is now available in all buildings.—Updated by Rebecca Willa Davis
