Andon Ryokan is a modern Japanese inn located in Taito City, Tokyo. It features a budget experience for tatami culture, as it is designed as a more up-to-date variation of a traditional Japanese ryokan.

To add a quaint feel to the interior, the management decorates the inn with antiques and other small accessories to bring a homey feel.

The inn has 20 rooms in total, decorated with Japanese art and with wooden accents. There is a shared bathroom for the guests as well. One night’s stay may range from 5,000 to 15,000 JPY.

Andon Ryokan also features a jacuzzi as a modern take on the traditional onsen, which guests can reserve free of charge. There is an antique teahouse on the first floor where guests can observe and participate in tea ceremonies.

Andon Ryokan is a short walk away from Minowa Subway Station and a short distance from the historic Asakusa.

The inn is operating normally with safety measures in place and limited acceptance to prevent the spread of infection.

the best of both worlds
Yes, the rooms are small here. I think that's pretty obvious to anyone who bothers to look at the photos before booking. But rather than a point of complaint, we found this aspect an authentic Tokyo experience. Authentic, but not traditional. Because anyone who bothers to look at the photos before booking would also immediately see that this is actually a thoroughly modernized version of the Japanese ryokan. We honestly thought it was the best of both worlds. A sleek and clean design aesthetic, with wonderful traditional cultural offerings like their tea ceremony available. Even the location contributed to that for us. No, you're not steps away from Sensoji Temple here. Where you are instead is in a real Tokyo neighborhood, full of non-tourists, who you can interact with and eat a the same restaurants as, etc. And you're still only a 10-minute walk to the metro. Add to all this the most friendly and helpful of staffs and you have one of the best stays in all the city, for totally reasonable rates as well!

Very nice stay, great experience and wonderful staff!
We had a lovely stay at the Andon Ryokan! This was a great cultural experience, where you sleep on mats on tatami mats on the floor - this is more comfortable than expected! The rooms were small, but we didn't travel to Japan just to stay in our room, we were there to explore! From the moment we checked in, all of the staff were so kind and accommodating. Breakfast is included, and made to order. Tea and coffee are offered at the reception and on each floor, complimentary. Slippers are provided for guests, and you leave your shoes outside of the rooms. The washrooms are clean, and are shared (similarly to a hostel). Though most of the rooms on our floor were booked, we generally didn't hear any other guests and had a comfortable sleep. Be sure to book a soak in the private jacuzzi - what a wonderful relaxation! We also booked a sushi and miso soup making class, which the host was able to accommodate a vegetarian option for me, while my husband ate the traditional serving. The food was plentiful - we couldn't finish what we made! They offer other classes as well, depending on the day of the week. The only comment is about the location - it was a little inconvenient to walk the 10 minutes to and from the metro, especially with our bags, but we knew this going into the visit. You could book a taxi from your starting location, if unable to do the walk.

Highly recommend this unique Ryokan!
We stayed at the the interesting Andon Ryokan two nights. The staff were so hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed two wonderful breakfasts with them and had a great time exploring the neighborhood and walking from the hotel to the Asakusa area. Be sure to sign up for a time in their private jacuzzi, which is a modern take on the traditional Japanese Onsen. It was relieving after a long day of walking! The rooms are small but very comfortable and the shared bathrooms and shower area are clean and basically private. They provide a nice tea area on each floor and their rooftop deck is a great place to enjoy it! We would definitely stay at Andon Ryokan again and recommend them highly!

Stole our key deposit
I wanted to leave a good review since our stay was pleaant, but they kept our key deposit. They insisted they gave us two door keys when they absolutely did not and refused to give us our money. It also is fairly far from most things you will want to go see.

Good Enough.
We wanted to experience traditional Japanese culture and this hotel did not fail, we got to sleep on futons placed on tatami mats, the slippers provided are Japanese style, the hotel interiors have traditional japanese items and there even is a free onsen bath with yukata for the guests. I also loved that the place has free flowing coffee and tea. We didn't expect the place however to be cramped, the room is small, and the common restroom/shower are much smaller. Also, the location is quite inconvenient being ~10mins walk to a train station that is not JR which is a disadvantage for us since we availed of the JR pass. There are no convenience stores nor restaurants near the place as well. But overall, we got everything we need: wifi, hair dryers, toiletries and the staff are accomodating.
