This Asakusa ryokan started life as a traditional Japanese house, and it's kept the inner garden and ornate circular windows – as well as the tatami floors, rickety old staircase and indifferent (maybe non-existent) insulation. Some guests complain that it's shabby, noisy, and freezing cold in winter, but when you're paying ¥3,000 for a single room it's hard to complain too much. There's no curfew, and the facilities include free WiFi, a common area with cable TV, and a complimentary bike rental service.
