Sumisho Hotel Review
Set in a down-to-earth, friendly neighborhood, this hotel is popular with budget-minded foreign visitors who prefer to stay near the small Japanese restaurants and bars of Ningyo-cho area of Nihombashi. A shallow rock pond and stone lantern welcome guests inside, but that's where the graces end. The biggest twin rooms are long and narrow, and the bathrooms are tiny units with low ceilings. The best accommodations are the three tatami rooms on the second floor overlooking a small Japanese garden. Full-course Japanese meals are available in the restaurant, Kappo Sumisho, and the original Mitsukoshi Department Store is within walking distance.
